Morning, everyone! Here's all the news on our radar this fine Friday...
• WHOOOOO Wendy Davis is running for governor of Texas WHOOOOOO!!! [Huffington Post]
• A marketing strategy created by the firm PHD identifies when women are feeling least attractive and recommends that brands "concentrate media during prime vulnerability moments." The Atlantic asks, "Is This the Grossest Advertising Strategy of All Time?" We say: It might just be. [The Atlantic]
• Is it a big deal that actor Michelle Rodgriguez has come out as bisexual? One woman argues that, yes, it really is. [Autostraddle]
• In this personal essay, Bitch contributor Melissa Petro writes that working as a domestic violence counselor doesn't necessarily equal immunization against entering into an abusive relationship. [xoJane]
• A fascinating look at what happens when one of the Internet's most odious and self-aggrandizing pick-up artists visits a country where institutional feminism, in the form of social-welfare services, has made most of its female citizens impervious to "seduction" scams. In other words: Dude got negged by Denmark. [Dissent]
• Rebranding feminism, redux: Last week, Elle UK hooked up three ad agencies with three feminist groups, and each pair produced a poster designed to be both eye-catching and ideals-shifting. Do you think it worked? [Creative Review]
