We all know our girls Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are today’s queens of humor, satire, and hilarious social commentary that deals with women’s issues. But who did this kind of work before them? What female comedian was around for the Women’s Liberation and all that cool stuff? Why, Carol Burnett, of course!
And now Fey and Poehler have the chance to honor this iconic lady by presenting her with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, ... Read More

Getting ready to pop out a wee-one but still unsure what to expect? Want something a little more tangible than a viewing of The Miracle of Life? Not me. I certainly don't fondly reminisce about the film's bird's eye view of the vaginal opening or the loud screams of my fellow high school classmates. I did not think the horrors of that movie could be topped.
Then there came Laerdal's birthing simulator, MamaNatalie. Bring ole' Natalie into your home ... Read More
Like many others, we were shocked and appalled by Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines.” As the song’s title suggests, the song contains concerning lyrics that blur the very clear divide between consensual sex and abuse: New York Magazine's Ann Friedman explains that “phrases like ‘good girl’ and ‘I know you want it’ uttered in rapid succession [sound rapey].” The song stirred up more ...

Thinking of taking a class in art? Spanish? Astrophysics?
Not when there's a space available at the School for Undressing!
Unfortunately, the school closed quite some time ago. It opened in 1937, charging 30 hard-earned dollars (worth a whopping $497 today!) for six lessons to learn how to "undress" for your husband. Imagine spending $497 to pick-up an act "tee many martoonies" would have you doing anyway!
Now I know you're wondering "How can I ever learn to strip ... Read More
We were laughing our asses off at the BUST 20th Anniversary Extravaganza while these two took over the stage. Now the hilarious duo has once again proved their comedic genius with a response to the anti-abortion legislation in Texas. Comedian David Cross and actress/poet Amber Tamblyn created the perfect parody of the newest doctor - the "Gynotician."
In a seemingly typical gyno checkup, a patient (Amb Tamb) comes in to see her doctor to get birth ... Read More

If you didn't have a Lisa Frank backpack at some point in your life, then I'm sorry your childhood was so miserable. Those iconic neon animals and the weird, ice-cream filled world they lived in was the stuff of dreams. Or the stuff you would hallucinate if someone spiked your Sunny D with acid.
Not that I would know from experience.
In any case, there's a so-simple-it's-brilliant new Tumblr called Funky Fresh in Lisa Frank, and it is ... Read More

You know them. Dancing around while eating yogurt. Wearily trying to avoid dessert. Conducting board meetings in their bikinis.
Okay, maybe not the last one so much, but still. A new ad for Irish-brand LowLow Cheese tackles these common clichés of diet-food ads, which, unshockingly, all happen to be women. (Serious food for thought: how often do we see diet food marketed towards men?) And while I wish that this wasn't being presented to us by an ad itself ... Read More

We interrupt our usual posts on gender roles, slut-shaming and kittens getting bubble baths to give you this special public service announcement.
The lovely individuals at Broken People have provided a video that addresses the silent social-life killer: Bitchy Resting Face. Bitchy Resting Face, sometimes more commonly known as "chronic bitch face" or simply "bitch face," is an issue that many women live with and silently suffer from. The worst part is that ... Read More

What would yours say? Comedian Ariella Scarcella, star of the Youtube channel Arielle Is Hamming, has answered the question with her latest video If Vaginas Could Talk. They'd complain about waxing, swamp ass, blood, and hot summer days. It gets a bit more graphic than that, but just watch it yourself and laugh your genitals off.See more of Arielle ... Read More

Cat videos are awesome. But a cat dressed as a shark? On a Roomba? Chasing a duck? This is maybe the cutest, strangest, and funniest thing ever. And did I mention the dog dressed as a hammerhead shark at the end?
Whoever thought to costume and stage this insanity is brilliant. Check out the video below and prepare to have your mind blown by this hilarious cuteness. Image via: ... Read More
