Is It Inappropriate For A Nurse To Write On Facebook About Circumcision?

Oh hai, Internet. This post is not an invitation to rage forth in the epic battle about circumcision. I am merely posing a question to you: is it kinda inappropriate for a nurse to write about your kid’s procedures on Facebook?

It’s Time To Cry: Basketball Player Offers The Ball To Special Needs Player On Opposing Team

Is there anything more awesomely inspiring and redemptive than a good sports story? No. Despite the fact that I cannot properly toss a baseball or dribble a basketball, I love a good team sports story (see also: “Friday Night Lights,” “Moneyball,” and “Rudy”).

A Very Confused Mark Wahlberg Turned Down “Star Trek”

hough offered a role in the 2009 smash hit space reboot, it turns out Marky Mark didn’t want to be part of J.J. Abram’s funky “Star Trek” bunch. Why? Well with all that Vulcan-y dialogue and wacky character names like Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, the script was just too blimey confusing for Mark Wahlberg.

During promotions for “Broken City,” his latest…

13 Examples Of Body Bedazzling Gone Terribly Wrong (NSFWish)

If you were alive in the ’80s, you probably owned (or really wanted to own) a Bedazzler. God, I worked my mom over for one of those and lost interest once it arrived in the mail. Go figure.

Transgender First Grader Challenges Colorado School’s Bathroom Rules

The 1997 film “Ma Vie En Rose” depicts a young French boy who insists that he’s actually a girl.

8 Things Working At Disney World Taught Me About The Human Race

Last semester I worked at Walt Disney World and encountered thousands of “guests” (as they are known in Disney-speak) a day.

Eve…

Ke$ha Has A “Souped-Up” Vagina

“[Gold Trans Am] began as a song about my car, which is a gold Trans Am, and it works about 40 per cent of the time. I don’t have another car because I love that one so much. But then like all great pop it became a metaphor for something else – my pu**y. But…

Guy Talk: Consent Isn’t As Simple As “No Means No”

Back in my 20s, I used to party quite a bit, sometimes to ridiculous excess. Drunkenness was rampant, and so were the accompanying shenanigans.
Once, a large group of us took a limo bus downtown for a coworker’s birthday. On the bus was a girl I recognized from work, but had never met. We…

Jared Leto Got A Tattoo For Twitter

Jared Leto told Twitter that when he hits 1 million twitter followers, he would get a tattoo. Well he did. And he did. He got this giant tattoo on his back. I’m still not convinced this isn’t a joke.

Stop Telling Me To Smile, Already

How many zillions of times in you life have you been told by a random stranger on the street to “smile”? While the sentiment may at first seem harmless, the implication is that women only exist to be objectified by men — that by not smiling, we’re not fulfilling our end of the bargain. It’…
