Erin Brown Faces 30 Years In Prison For Giving Drunk Boyfriend The Keys

If someone’s been drinking, you usually take away their car keys, not give them yours. Erin Brown did just that and now the resident of Hermitage, Tenn., faces 30 years in prison.

Back in December, Brown, 21, gave her car keys to her boyfriend, 23-year-old Trevor Bradshaw, thinking he was sober enough to drive. Bradshaw wasn’t and, as a result, he struck two pedestrians — Michael Brooksher, 22, and Tommy Allen, 23 — both of whom died, according to the Tennessean.

Bradshaw was charged with vehicular homicide and assault, and, if convicted, could serve a 30-year sentence. In an unusual twist, however, Brown faces the same charges as her boyfriend, even though she had just been a passenger during the accident. Read more…

Rolling Stone Mouth-Shaped Urinals Called Sexist

Once upon a time the Rolling Stones lamented that they couldn’t get no satisfaction. Today, the Rolling Stones Fan Museum in Germany has similar woes, since it’s under fire from feminists who have taken issue with the museum’s urinals.

The iconic urinals are in the shapes of a big, juicy pair of red lips — the Rolling Stones logo. The logo was originally modelled off Mick Jagger’s iconic pout, created in 1971 by art designer John Pasche. Yet the urinals remove the tongue and brighten the original icon, making the already androgynous Jagger mouth appeal quite womanly. And, needless to say, feminists are pissed.

Roda Armbruster called the urinals ”discrimination against women,” and her sentiments are shared by a growing number of people in Germany and internationally. Read more…
