Lindsay Lohan appeared in court today for a bail hearing after failing a mandatory court-ordered drug test last week. If Lindsay was expecting leniency from the judge for being honest and remorseful about violating her probation, she was bitterly disappointed. The judge ordered her back to jail. Immediately. Instead of setting bail, letting Lohan free until her October 22nd court date to deal with the violation, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox ordered her back to jail. Immediately. Lohan’s court date will still be on Oct. 22. Until then, I guess she’s wearing prison garb? [AP] Keep reading »

Etsy is overflowing with feminist-inspired jewelry and apparel and while much of it is a little too vaginal for our tastes, we did find 10 awesome items that scream “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!”
“Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy — it has to be because of ‘Brokeback,’ right? I’ve known this dude forever. He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this — it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he’s my buddy. I f**kin’ love the guy.”
