It's Spring Break ladies and that means you're probably going to some beach somewhere, wearing slutty clothes, drinking way too much and getting yourselves raped.  As of today, 10 rapes have been reported at Daytona Beach and the media is going into a frenzy about a Spring Break "Rape Epidemic" without seeming to realize that this isn't breaking news and this ...

Texas loves its women.  Most of the time. Seriously, we have a pretty badass history in general (remember the Alamo?) but even more specifically we have a pretty badass history when it comes to women.  We had Miriam A. Ferguson in office as our governor for a decade starting in 1925 (just six years after women's suffrage) and Minnie Lou Bradley running her own ranch in the 1950's.  We also proudly claim the legendary Governor Ann Richards and the ...

By now you've probably read all about how now-former Member of Congress Eric Massa resigned because a male staffer complained of a hostile workplace. Here's Massa's quote on the incident. "One of them looked at me and as they would do after, I don't know, 15 gin and tonics, and goodness only knows how many bottles of champagne, a staff member made an intonation to me that maybe I should be chasing after the bridesmaid and his points were clear and his words were ...

Yesterday my friends and I were joking on Facebook (shut up) about Terry Gross's Fresh Air interview with Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart: Memoirs of a Dominatrix. Terry Gross is pretty famous for being a great interviewer but she was way out of her depth. She just seemed unable to believe that "normal" people work in sex dungeons or patronize them. While talking to the author, Terry veered back and forth between "How did a nice girl like you end up doing ... Read More

Should Oscar Be Neutered?

BY mikki in Eat Me |

In today's New York Times, Kim Elsesser makes the case that the Academy Awards should get over their damn selves and blend all of the acting categories so there is no longer a "Best Actress" and a "Best Actor." It's not a new idea--feminists have been suggesting it for decades. But my feeling is: Who cares? I just can't get worked up about this issue when I think about the fact that there have only been thirty-five women in the Senate. Ever. Where's the NYT ... Read More

An old friend of mine just emailed me the ad above, for a bizarre product called "Mr. Leggs." Unfortunately, the copy is too small to read here, but I did find it on another website. Apparently, it reads: Though she was a tiger lady, our hero didn’t have to fire a shot to floor her. After one look at his Mr. Leggs slacks, she was ready to have him walk all over her. That noble styling sure soothes the savage heart! If you’d like your own doll-to-doll ... Read More
