  Camille Paglia’s latest article is titled “Lady Gaga and the Death of Sex.” The name itself sounds like it could be the title of Lady Gaga’s next album. Not to be mistaken for a “Little Monster” herself, Paglia, a long-standing voice of feminism, writes about the nonsensical exhibitionism and cultural extremities that have shot Lady Gaga straight to the top.   What bugs me most about Camille Paglia’s article is ...

Reporter Ines Sainz was scheduled to interview Mark Sanchez of the NY Jets, when she got a little more attention than she bargained for. Ines, a reporter for Azteca TV (a Mexican station) and a former Miss Spain pageant queen, was the alleged victim of sexual harassment. She was "cat-called" as well as whistled and stared out while at Jets Florham Park. Ines has been criticized for being dressed inappropriately, although she was wearing jeans and a tee ... Read More
Personally, when I think of Girl Scouts, I think of cookies. I also think of an organization that encourages young women to explore new activities and cultures, widening the scope of their education. However, Hans Zeiger, a Republican candidate for Washington’s House of Representatives wouldn’t agree with that assertion. He alleges (in a personal blog that he attempted to delete, but was still cached, thanks to Google) that (and I am not making this ... Read More
A disturbing New York Times article published this week brings to light a very scary reminder that the plight of feminism isn't over yet: poison gas attacks targeting all-girls schools in Afghanistan. According to an Afghan official, said attacks have been going on for two years, with two attacks occurring in the past week.   According to the article "The spokesman, Dr. Kargar Norughli, said his ministry and the World Health Organization had been ...

Ima gotta admit–I think the world was a better place before this series of books and movies came out. OK, maybe I should limit it to the movies since I haven't read the books, and obviously that means just the first two since the hornet one is yet to arrive on our shores, but I can't imagine how augmenting my knowledge of this trilogy would change my mind. I was going to hold off on passing judgment until the third one came out, but with the the ABC News ... Read More

Stayfree or Stay Away?

BY debbie in Feminizzle

Oh, Canada! We love that the ad world  is finally realizing that, yup, women have a sense of humor too. And with the Old Spice ads they surely have a winner. This Canadian Stayfree ad, which I'm sure it's creators hope will be a major viral video, is a virus, alright, but more like an STD. Aside from the fact that a dude is lecturing me on what kind of maxi pad to use, what kind of hot date busts out with the phrase "I hate moisture! Don't you just hate ... Read More
The Republicans made a good choice with Sarah Palin. That’s the point Anna Holmes (editor of Jezebel.com) and Rebecca Traister (author of the forthcoming Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything for American Women) consider in their op-ed in the New York Times this past Sunday. And it’s an interesting one to consider: what ladies do the Democrats have? For the group that is supposed to be more liberal and open, their main player ... Read More
Kamala Lopez is adamant. And we all should be. Just last Thursday was Women's Equality Day, but the thing is, we're still not equal. The fact is, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has still not been ratified, and we need this shit in writing. Ms. Lopez recently helped launch this campaign with the premiere of this brief video. She plans produce 20 short films over the next year in order to bring about the awareness necessary to finally get the ERA ratified. For ... Read More

In national news Bristol Palin is on the hot seat for receiving a $14,000 speaking fee from Lifehouse, a home for unwed mothers in Louisville, Kentucky. I'm thinking back home they're loving her. Well, most of them are anyway. Willow: "Where's mom?" Todd: "Would you pass the venison please, dear?" Piper: "Yeah, where's mom?" Bristol: "She's not coming." Track: "But you asked everyone to come. Even I'm here." Bristol rolls eyes. Sighs: "Whatever. Mom's going to ... Read More
