I'm behind the times with this post but I was driving in my car and almost choked on my granola bar when I heard Eminem, a man charged with domestic violence, and Rihanna, a survivor of domestic violence singing a duet about domestic violence together.   And then I almost threw up my granola bar when I listened to the lyrics.  Not because I hate the song but simply because the lyrics of the song are so raw and visceral.    "Come inside, pick up ...

Check out this 80s-tastic propaganda video encouraging teens to wait for marriage - no, not wait to have sex - wait to kiss.  "Because what does the Pastor say?  You may NOW kiss the bride."  Dude, my mouth was first befouled when I was four and I was the flower girl at my cousin's wedding and I tried to kiss the ring bearer, John Michael, in the church courtyard.  Then he choked me.  Maybe that was God's punishment for being a trampy ...

I WILL EAT YOUR HEART WITH A FUCKING SPOON IF YOU AKS ANY MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT COLORS—Anonymous, Color Survey Now that I have your attention, xkcd conducted a color survey recently, which I took and which I had to stop about 30 colors in because it hurt my brain.  Basically, colors flash on the screen and survey takers could type in what color they thought it was.  So, you had a MILLION greens that looked like they were ALMOST the same ...

GLEE and Body Image

BY Jamie Doak in Boob Tube |

This is belated but Glee last week was awesome.  After the cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester, told Mercedes she needed to lose 10 pounds by the end of the week, the previously confident Mercedes stopped eating all together.  She fainted in school from hunger and pregnant former cheerleader Quinn came in to talk to her in the nurse's office: Mercedes: [Quinn offers her food] Thanks, I’m not hungry.Quinn: Yes, you are. You're starving.  I know, ... Read More
Okay, we probably shouldn't be derogatory towards any genitalia regardless of its gender.....however....OMG, have y'all read Savage Love today?  (For those who may not have discovered Savage Love yet, it is the best and most hilarious sex advice column of all time.  Start reading it immediately.)  Anyway, for all those who call people "pussies" like it's a bad thing, behold the genius of Dan Savage. Letter to Dan Savage:  "Wah wah wah my ... Read More
I only selectively like South Park.  This is for many reasons; One) It's racist, classist and sexist.  Two) I'm a ginger and they told me I didn't have a soul (I'M A CHRISTIAN, I HAVE A SOUL OKAY.)  Three) I do not wish to go directly to hell when I die.  That said, South Park occasionally provides a cringe-worthy and sometimes hilarious social commentary that people need to hear.    I was forced to watch South Park recently ...

Nike Stands by Their Man

BY Jamie Doak in Eat Me |

<--- He's a winner! I'm not really into sports.  And I'm not really into Nike either.  And I don't really pay that much attention to sports endorsements BUT when Nike endorses sexual assault offenders even I'm like, "What the hell, Nike?  You managed to not meet the exceedingly low expectations I have for you." Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a 572-page Georgia Police report filed against him, two women accusing him of ... Read More

Boobquake!

BY Jamie Doak in Feminizzle |

Have y'all heard of Boobquake?  It was a joke facebook event started by Jennifer McCreight in response to Iranian Prayer Leader Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi's quote that, "Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes."  Makes sense...... Boobquake is a science experiment encouraging  women to dress 'immodestly' on the same day (April ... Read More
How do you teach kids to eat healthy without giving them a weight complex?  Especially when we live in a society in which one-third of kids are overweight but nearly 50 per cent of girls report engaging in some form of disordered eating.  Michelle Obama, warrior princess against childhood obesity, got some heat for disclosing that her daughters' doctor mentioned that their weight was off-balance and for telling the public that she decided to cut down on ...

The Sutton family recently competed on Family Feud and got the category "Something Everyone Knows About Ellen DeGeneres."  And clearly, the first thing people think of when they think of Ellen is that she's HILARIOUS, right?  Nope, it's that she's gay.  Good lord.  Even more bizarre is the weirdo who guessed that something everyone knows about Ellen is that she "doesn't like our country very much?"  Uh, what?  Is it her adorable smile ...
