Yesterday we brought you Kristen Schaal’s “The Sexy Vagina” costume, but today is a new day to talk about our lovely lady bits. And what’s the best way to start off your day? With some good 'ole period talk!  Ah yes, menstruation, a truly blissful time for every woman. Obviously I’m being sarcastic, because for most ladies, that week really sucks. One minute I’m laughing, the next I’m in pain, and then oh wait, what ... Read More
Today is the best day in the world because today you can have a super cute and cuddly and perfect kitten delivered RIGHT TO YOUR DOORSTEP. Yes, that’s right—if you live in New York, San Francisco or Seattle, and use the app “Uber,” you can, with the push of a button, have a kitten driven directly to you! To promote National Cat Day, Uber has teamed up with the popular meme site, Cheezburger in this amazingly brilliant marketing stunt to ... Read More
In the wake of recent uproar over the ridiculousness of sexy women’s Halloween costumes, hilariously awesome comedian Kristen Schaal made an appearance as The Daily Show's Senior Women's Issues Correspondent to discuss the new trend, but more importantly, to unveil her own line of super sexy Halloween costumes—one for men and one for women. While the costume for guys is certainly a winner, (“Sexy Hollywood Producer Who Hires ...

According to a recent study done by British plus-sized retailer Littlewoods, 74% of women who wear a British size 16 (size 12 in the U.S.) say they are happy with their appearance and have high body confidence—nearly twice as many (42%) as those wearing a British size 6 (U.S. 2) The study, which commissioned a poll of 2,000 women on dress size and confidence, additionally revealed that half of those whose weight had fluctuated in the past three years were ...

In the biggest "Wait...what?" I've witnessed in a while (well...maybe since earlier today), Party City has been caught red-handed committing a Class-A Photoshop disaster. The models of their (what I suppose one could call) "festive legwear" selection, have all been Photoshopped to appear in both the straight and plus size versions. Did they really think we wouldn't notice the same image flipped or stretched? As the Gloss keenly notes, "[T]hese all look wonky, ... Read More
Never fear, this video will brighten even the dullest of slow-moving Fridays! Filmed by a parent at a preschool dance recital, the video showcases a little girl who forgoes the choreographed dance on stage, choosing to instead bust out her own moves and be all around amazing. While her counterparts determinedly (and rather solemnly) attempt to follow the beat of the song “Broadway Baby” from the musical Follies, this energetic toddler bounces about, ... Read More
In case you are one of the few who hasn't seen this plastered all over Facebook (thank you, Aunt Susan), here's the breaking news of the day: Russell Brand is a political genius.  A few nights ago, Brand appeared on the British political program "Newsnight" where he discussed the state of the world with host Jeremy Paxman. At first, it's mildly amusing to watch the author of literary crown-jewel "My Booky Wook" use words like "paradigm" and "lexicon" without ... Read More
There has always been a bit of controversy surrounding breast-feeding, but one label that is hardly ever given the natural mammalian processes is “cult-like.” Yet, in Russia last week, the country’s top breast-feeding specialist was arrested and charged for just that: being a cult leader. The Rozhana Center was founded in 1989 to re-introduce birthing techniques, such as home birth and breast-feeding, that were not allowed during the Soviet ... Read More
Dictionary entries for the word shame include “a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety” and “a feeling of guilt, regret, or sadness that you have because you know you have done something wrong.” Etymologically, the word comes from the Old English scamu, a “loss of esteem” or something that “brings disgrace[...] private parts.” The word is powerful, calling to mind images of our ...

  “Women need to stop spreading their legs like peanut butter or rape is going to keep on happening ’til the cows come home.” Those were the actual words spoken by a cop when University of Connecticut student Kylie Angell reported her rape in July 2010. Though her male classmate was initially expelled, he made an appeal that allowed him back on campus a mere two weeks later. The administration comforted Angell with the logic "it's fine--you ...
