Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

This is for the “Whiz Biz” a product made by an Australian company “whose products give women the freedom to wee anywhere a man could.” It’s not nearly as phallic as the Shenis (link NSFW) and it comes in hot pink. They really know how to market urine… READ MORE »

Ugh! I was out running errands this weekend when I saw two more examples of dog clothes being used to promote lame sexist attitudes.
