Huffington Post reporter Laura Bassett snapped this photo Wednesday at a House of Representatives hearing regarding a proposed nationwide 20-week abortion ban spearheaded by Republican Rep. Trent Franks. If you look closely, you will see a dude, another dude, another dude, another dude, another dude, another dude, another dude, and yup, one more dude. EIGHT MEN! At a hearing on abortion rights! Dudes! Legislating women’s bodies! [Twitter; Huffington Post] [Photo via Laura Bassett]
The only thing more awkward than having strangers make out on top of you is being the only one in a group not kissing someone. Maybe we’re just faster with our cameras these days, but thanks to sites like Reddit, we’ve noticed people (and animals are capturing their third wheel, fifth wheel — even ninth wheel situations more than ever.
Sure, it’s strange to be the only one not paired off in a group, but how do you react to rolling solo? From the angry third wheel to the fifth wheel who embraces her singlehood, we count down our favorites. Read more on Your Tango…
Lovely reader Elise left the following question on our Facebook page:
Would it be possible to do a slideshow on shorts-at-work? So many of the shorts styles are too revealing to work, wearing jeans all the time is way hot, and wearing skirts all the time is way too girly for my .com office! Frisky to the fashion rescue?
Of course we’d be happy to help! Shorts at work can be a tricky proposition… Keep reading »

We were thrilled to report a mostly happy ending to the story that was high school studentKiera Wilmot being expelled and arrested for attempting a science experiment on school grounds. No formal charges were brought against the student and she and her sister will get a free ride to space camp soon, but to hear Wilmot tell the story in her own words brings the frightening reality of what almost happened back to life.
Wilmot wrote a full account of what happened for the American Civil Liberties Union and as a kid who rarely got in trouble at school, it brought back memories of how bad it actually felt when I did. Only, I don’t think I could ever imagine what it would be like being handcuffed at school for doing a science project.
The piece, titled “An Unexpected Reaction: Why a Science Experiment Gone Bad Doesn’t Make Me a Criminal,” broke down the whole experience, which began by choosing a biology, chemistry, or physics project for class. Read more on The Mary Sue…
A couple weeks ago, I told you about my encounter with a fedora-sporting Justin Theroux and my subsequent realization that while a fedora on a dude is an immediate red flag for doucheitude, lots of celeb women are also rocking the trend. I asked whether you would wear a fedora this spring and summer, and the vast majority of you said YES. So here, as promised, are 12 options, all under $30! Keep reading »
Embarking on a Memorial Day road trip this weekend? All those sweaty passengers and pungent snack foods make for a fun journey, but they can also leave your car smelling … not so fresh. Instead of buying a new air freshener, try making your own eco-friendly version using wool felt and essential oils. You can customize the scent and shape to your liking, and when it loses its potency, it’s totally reusable — just add more oil! [Crafting A Green World]
Well this is disappointing news. I was really looking forward to seeing Shia LeBeouf doing his own huffing and puffing. But no, Shia will have a porn star body double in “Nymphomaniac.”
The raunchy Lars Von Trier directed drama, which stars LaBeouf and Uma Thurman, will feature graphic sex scenes, but the film’s producer has confirmed the famous faces won’t be doing the deed on camera. Instead, pornographic actors will be used for the provocative scenes with the actors’ faces superimposed onto their bodies in post-production. Read more on Socialite Life…
Oh, Taylor Swift. When will your reign of terror finally come to an end?! For a pop star, the 23-year-old sure does seem to bring a lot of “trouble” into other people’s lives. Usually these people are ex-boyfriends, but this time The Curse of Taylor Swift has befallen an 18-year-old girl who doesn’t even know Taylor personally! British college student and professional Taylor Swift look-alike Xenna Kristian was just minding her own business when another female student (clearly NOT president of the Taylor Swift fan club) attacked her for no reason (well, no reason except that she looks like Taylor Swift) and gave her a suspected broken jaw.
“Some girls at college had started making nasty comments, but it escalated really quickly,” said Kristian. “The girl came up behind me and dragged me off my chair by my pony tail, then started kicking me in the face.” Read more on The Stir…
I am so mad at Andy Cohen for not inviting me to be inside this Jessica Walter and Elisabeth Moss sandwich. “Arrested Development”? “Mad Men”? Booze? LIFE. Any challenges Elisabeth to a game of Plead The Fifth and, class act that she is, she had nothing to say about her costar’s famously well-endowed penis. I was kinda hoping she would plead the fifth, so she could use Jessica’s favorite Lucille Bluth line, “I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.” [Bravo TV]
