sex 060409 slide1 jpg
The only thing more disgusting than thinking of the Jonas Brothers having sex? Hearing their mom talk about it.

Denise Jonas, yapped away to July’s Good Housekeeping about the day her little show ponies will be “seduced” and “tempted” and the purity rings will come off:

“They are men. They have desires [and] testosterone. If they make a mistake, I’m not going to hate them. I don’t think they are above or below being seduced. I would be foolish if I thought that. They are tested and tested, like every one of us. I pray for them.”

Ick. Ick. Ick. Not a mental image anyone who isn’t a 14-year-old girl needs.

But sadly, Denise Jonas is just the latest in a long line of parents who divulge TMI when talking about their famous kids having sex.

Five More Reasons We Still Need Feminism

Sirens siren Heather Wood Rudulph has written a piece for Huffington Post about five reasons we still need feminism, including the recent murder of abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller, and the propensity of pop culture to make women look like marriage-crazy loons.

Her five reasons are just dandy, but why limit ourselves to only five? It was depressingly easy to think of five more reasons we need more of the F-word. Keep reading »

“Womenomics” Authors Say Working Mothers Should Just Say “No” To More Work

“No means no” is a phrase feminists have successfully integrated into the lexicon to use in halting unwanted sexual advances. And now some feminists are arguing the next terrain for “no means no” should be for cutting back on above-the-call-of-duty hours spent in the workplace.

So says the new book “Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules For Success,” by Claire Shipman, senior national correspondent for ABC News’ “Good Morning America” and mom of two, and Katty Kay, Washington correspondent and anchor for “BBC World News America” and mom of four. Their argument, as described by Salon:

[The authors] call for women to say no to 60-plus-hour work weeks and overly demanding jobs that yank them away from their families. Instead, they urge working women to use their clout in the workplace to demand fewer hours at the office, turn down non-family-friendly assignments, and take control of their time by working from home more, checking e-mail less and avoiding meetings whenever possible.

Interracial Relationships

A Southeast Asian guy IMed me with about how I (a white woman) am dating a half-Asian guy and how I should write “something about white girls who date Asian boys…[it's a] fascinating topic.” He told me white women dating Asian men was “extremely rare, mostly because of prevailing stereotypes about Asian men,” such as “passivity” and Asian men being “desexualized” and therefore “overlooked by white girls.” He then suggested that my boyfriend, like other Asian men who date white girls, must be really “doting.” Presumably because he’s so grateful to be with me.

Stop Trying to Make Scrunchies Happen, American Apparel

We’ve kept silent while Dov Charney has screwed around with fashion.

We put up with the pervy advertisements.

We put up with Charney masturbating in front of a Jane reporter.

We put up with his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits.

We put up with messing with our main mensch, Woody Allen.

But we’re not going to take it anymore—the scrunchies must be stopped. Keep reading »
