This new Old Spice ad cannot be ignored any longer. Besides being hilarious, ridiculous, and featuring the eye-candy that is Isaiah Mustafa, there seems to be a change in tone for the better in terms of gender. Personally, I think it's more sensitive to gender roles, but still keeping with the sensitive manly-man ideal. We know that Old Spice is going for the ridiculous— "Swan dive!"... genius— and our favorite Old Spice Man gracefully lands in a hot ... Read More

Tama's photos showcase not only the interruption of a culture and ruin of a ... Read More

The Palin family just won’t go away. Recently, we’ve seen Sarah Palin all over the news preaching what she deems a new “feminism” to women by empowering themselves through accepting traditional gender roles. In the news, she is said to have bonded with groups of women by revealing how hard it was to be pregnant at forty. She says that she “drove to another state to buy a pregnancy test” and “waited in a lonely, hotel ... Read More

Is "Huge" A Big Deal?

BY Emily Rems in Boob Tube |

So far, online reactions to last night’s premiere of the new ABC Family teen fat camp series Huge are mixed—and for good reason. Created by Winnie Holzman of My So-Called Life and her daughter Savannah Dooley, the show stars Hairspray’s adorable Nikki Blonsky (right) and the gorgeous Hayley Hasselhoff (David’s daughter, left), and is being touted as the antidote to all those skinny teen ensemble shows that relegate fat girls to the margins. ...

You’d have to say that Wonder Woman is definitely recognizable. I mean, don’t you just wonder where she holds stuff or if she ever has had a wardrobe malfunction when she’s kicking butt? I do. Well, that’s all about to change. ... Read More
The New York Times has a blog post up today about how exercise science has ignored women. The piece cites New Zealand researcher Dr. David Rowlands, who did a study on male cyclists in 2008 that found they exhibited a 4% performance gain if they ate protein and carbs after workouts, as opposed to just carbs. He theorized that the protein repair muscle damage and aided in processing the carbs as fuel. The study aligned with other similar studies and the word went ... Read More

Some Hump Day Humor

BY Nicole Finkbiner in Artsy |

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.   Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).  Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ...
