Potty Parity laws are bringing much needed real estate to the millions of women sick of waiting in line to pee. From mildly irritating to downright hazardous to our health, the lack of women’s toilets in sports venues (and everywhere else) is flush with problems. The New York Times gives us a peek into pooper politics. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Obviously, we’ve got an impostor here, but with lines like ‘water to wine it’s sleazy time’, we might not mind.
Ah, Easter! If Jesus were alive today, we’re pretty sure he would Twitter like Diddy because, really, it’s the best way to get the word out. Since we can follow Jesus, but not on Twitter, we’ll have to ask our favorite celebrities what they would do. Here’s how John Mayer, Martha Stewart, Ashton and more got their God on… Keep reading »
This weekend’s New York Times Sunday Magazine had a lengthy feature on SeekingArrangements.com, an online dating site which matches affluent men (or at least men willing to shill out what money they have) with women who are willing to trade companionship and often sex in exchange for money, gifts, and other perks. Half of these sugar daddies are married, while the vast majority of the sugar babies are in their ’20s. The best news of all for these guys? Sugar babies outnumber sugar daddies 10 to 1. Brandon Wade, Seeking Arrangement’s 38-year-old founder and chief executive, says, “We stress that these relationships are mutually beneficial. We ask people to really think about what they want in a relationship and what they have to offer. That kind of upfront honesty is a good basis for any relationship.” Keep reading »
Sarah Palin. Remember her? Despite Levi Johnston’s TV talk show circuit tour having ended, the Alaska governor is still under the microscope. Wayne Anthony Ross, Palin’s nominee for Alaska’s state attorney general, is facing accusations of supporting marital rape. Leah Burton, a veteran lobbyist on children’s issues and domestic violence, told the Alaska State Judiciary Committee that Ross said in a 1991 speech — given in front of the “father’s rights” group Dads Against Discrimination — “If a guy can’t rape his wife, who’s he gonna rape?” Hmm, is this the kind of “common sense” Jack was talking about? Burton also claims Ross once said, “If a woman would keep her mouth shut, there wouldn’t be an issue with domestic violence.” Ross denies making these statements — “I don’t talk like that!” he says — but rumor has it Palin may withdraw her nomination in order to save face.

Oh Amazon, how you’ve failed us. The online retailer came under fire this weekend for deranking a long list of books they’ve suddenly deemed “adult” material. Among the books deemed too adult to appear on searches and best seller lists on the site? Hundreds of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender books, including Gay Life And Culture: A World History, Heather Has Two Mommies, and The Lesbian Parenting Book: A Guide To Creating Families And Raising Children.
Over the course of the weekend, however, it became clear that the gay and lesbian community wasn’t the only one being targeted — books focusing on sex and feminism also lost their ranking, including Full Frontal Feminism by Feministing’s Jessica Valenti, and many of the erotica titles edited and written by Frisky contributor Rachel Kramer Bussel.
