Larry Getlen at the New York Post interviewed Adam Carolla today to talk about his new book, which is about growing up in North Hollywood, and probably a lot of other things no one cares about. Today, he's saying a bunch of inflammatory stuff-- probably to try to gain some sort of cultural relevance other than his podcast or old show. One of those things is that women aren't funny. For a dude whose old TV show was based almost entirely on making fun of women, or ... Read More
Now that it's not copacetic to throw the V-word around in the realm of American government, I decided to go ahead and make a short list of places where it is okay to use the word "vagina." Feel free to use this as a guide so that you don't startle any unexpected listeners. We don't know what the free use of anatomical terms could lead to, but some possibilities are: maturity, correctness, tolerance and, of course, anarchy.
1) The street. It's totally cool ... Read More

Flappers knew how to get dolled up and keep it copacetic in the 20s, and today we love them just as much as they would have wanted us to. Besides partying and staying in style, these ladies created a whole new language so catchy that a lot of it stuck around until today. We all know that the Real McCoy is the cat’s pajamas, not to take any wooden nickels, and that no one likes a wet blanket. But do you know what “Butt me” or “Oh, ... Read More
If you've ever caught the tiny voice in the back of your head thinking to yourself that the 33 cent pay gap between women and men really isn’t all that big, first of all: you are the worst, and second of all: let’s see if you’re singing a different tune when you see all the cool things you could afford when those cents add up. The Center for American Progress plugged in the numbers and found some interesting results. In 2010 the median ... Read More

Remember when the Vatican blasted the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (aka about 80 percent of American sisters) for focusing on the poor and hungry instead of railing against reproductive rights and gay people?
Well, those “radical feminist” gals haven’t taken the criticism lying down. And with public support behind them, The New York Times reports that sisters from Network, a liberal-leaning Catholic lobby group, will ... Read More

Calling all sluts! Need to register to vote? Look no further. You can Rock The Slut Vote right here.
This is a movement which was created to “fight the GOP effort to bully, subjugate and silence women,” and “wrest the power from the word slut and help women get informed, get involved, get registered and vote”.
The word slut was used publicly by Rush Limbaugh earlier this year to describe Sandra Fluke, who testified on behalf of ... Read More

As a woman, I love when rich white men with a chip on their shoulders limit my reproductive rights and tell me that I can’t marry the woman I love. Since I’m still paying for Eve’s first sin, I haven’t yet had the chance to pray the gay away. But I’m sure I’ll be okay once I find a guy to keep me barefoot and pregnant.
Those poor emotional creatures who say otherwise are simply distracted by “shiny objects”, because ... Read More

There’s a woman in a small village who, against all odds, dares to challenge authority and ride a motorbike to fight crime. And no, I’m not talking about Lisbeth Salander.
The 50-year-old Zarifa Qazizadah, who was forced to marry at 12 and now has 15 children and 36 grandchildren, is Afghanistan’s sole female village chief. That's a feat in itself, but the BBC reports that this brave leader has even remortgaged her home to pay for the posts and ... Read More
In the face of the heartbreaking loss of Dan Harmon as cult-hit Community's showrunner, we can sleep peacefully knowing that there are still some pretty awesome people out there running the show, and six of them happen to be female. Recently, New York Magazine rounded up a few of these women to talk about what's new in TV. The table sat Whitney Cummings (Whitney), Nahnatchka Khan (Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23), DeAnn Heline (The Middle), Emily Spivey (Up ... Read More
We recently spotted an interesting link floating around the internets courtesy of Racked.com, an interview with a woman who's been hanging out in the East Village...all out.
Hats off, or tops off, rather, to Moira Johnston for her confidence. She's been going topless for a few weeks in New York in honor of the legality of the act. In fact, she insists, "It's to raise awareness that's it's legal for woman to be topless anywhere a guy can be without a shirt since ... Read More
