Remember when you were younger and you would start a sentence with "No offense, but..." whenever you were about to criticize someone? Yeah, it seems like some people never grow up. News flash: if you have to start out defending what you are going to say, you probably shouldn't be saying it!

The flames started after Lindy posted a story on Jezebel, called, “If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting ... Read More

While it took a lot not to vomit at all the disgusting jokes about Catherine Zeta-Jones disease-ridden vagina, there were some gems hidden amongst the rubble.

In what parallel universe does a woman publicly apologize to a man who threatens to beat her up and make her “suck skin off" his dick?
Our universe, apparently. And as an added bonus, this woman is Katy Perry, idol to millions of teenage girls.

We all love to point out the poseurs. But if you're thinking about telling the girl next to you that she doesn't know shit about gaming, just make sure she's not Rae Johnston, the gaming editor at TechLife.
