Seventeen Magazine Doesn’t Do Much To Encourage Compassion For Transgender Teens

In the upcoming issue of Seventeen there’s a story about a young woman who discovered that her boyfriend was actually a female. While I think it’s cool that a traditional teen magazine like Seventeen is covering the existence of transgender teenagers, which wouldn’t have happened when I was reading the mag back in the day. But the story’s angle doesn’t do much to discourage negative attitudes towards teenagers who are struggling with their gender identity, and that’s a shame. Keep reading »

Could The Taylors Be Any More Aww-Worthy?

I am picturing the nuptials. “Do you, Taylor, take Taylor to be your lawfully wedded wife?” “I do.” “Do you, Taylor, take Taylor to be your lawfully wedded husband?” “I do.” Sigh. I wish there were a boy out there named Amelia. We could have such fun together. [Beverly Hills, 10/29/09] Keep reading »

Tyra Jumps On The Blackface Bandwagon

ET Online has posted photos from tonight’s (?) episode of “America’s Next Top Model” in which Tyra has the models, uh, transform to look biracial, which means many of them pose with blackface. So hot right now! Of course, if Tyra were writing this post, she would be quick to remind us that she was ahead of the curve — in Cycle 4, which aired in 2005, the models dressed up as mothers of other races and there was some blackface then too. Check out a few more images, after the jump. [ET Online] Keep reading »

Hot Outta The Oven: Hot Mormon Muffins

If you thought all Mormon women wore floor-length muslin gowns and did their hair in poofy buns, you would be wrong. If you thought Mormons ate normal, run-of-the-mill muffins, you would be wrong too. The “Hot Mormon Muffins: A Taste Of Motherhood” calendar blows those two stereotypes straight to hell. From the same folks who brought you the “Men On A Mission” calendar (which featured sexy male missionaries!), “these sexy moms have dared to step into the spotlight to breakdown stereotypes and extend a hand of friendship beyond religious and social boundaries. Shot in a centerfold format with oversized imagery, the calendar features the ladies’ favorite muffin recipes with a portion of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer research.” Well that’s nice, I guess. More importantly, what makes the muffins so damn special? According to Examiner.com, they have a “buttered sugar coating.” Consider my mind blown. [Examiner.com] Keep reading »
