Benedict Cumberbatch Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge … Naked

... And Then The Clothes Come Off

Can’t say I’ve ever understood the appeal of Benedict Cumberbatch … until now. First of all, THAT ACCENT. But more importantly the “Sherlock” star got the #ALSIceBucketChallenge from three different people, so he did it six times, including once while naked. Calm yourselves, everyone, you only see him from the chest up. [PopSugar]

  • Meryem Ali, 28, of Houston, Texas, is suing Facebook for $123 million for failing to remove her likeness in “revenge porn” photos posted to their site. As she tells Cosmopolitan.com, a man she had hung out with three times created a fake profile with photos of Ali’s head photoshopped onto pornographic images.  Ali’s original contact with Facebook with pretty much ignored (as well as contact made by family and friends). Four-and-a-half months later, Facebook finally took down the offending content only after they were contacted by police. Ali is now suing the site for 10 cents for every one of Facebook’s 1.23 billion users. [Cosmopolitan.com] Keep reading »

Landlord Evicted Tenant Over Noisy Sex Swing

You think your stomping upstairs neighbor is a problem? Imagine hearing apartment 3A’s squeaky sex swing at all hours of the night. A court in Munich, Germany, sided with a landlady for evicting a man who violated the “quiet clause” in his rental agreement by squeakin’ on an old sex swing after 10 p.m. and before 7 a.m. The chain swing made “sexual, athletic and squeaking noises” deep into the night, according to the New York Daily News. As a noisy woman myself, I feel for this German gent. But since the problem seemed to have been a creaky swing, why not attack that sucker with some WD-40?

To protect and serve, huh? Oklahoma City police arrested fellow cop Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, yesterday for rape and sexual battery against seven Black women.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty said that an investigation by the sex crimes unit found Holtzclaw assaulted the women while on-duty between February and June of this year, according to KOCO news. A three-year veteran of the force, Holtzclaw stopped women while they were walking in their neighborhoods or during traffic stops; he then searched and threatened them. He forced some of the women to perform oral sex on him, while others were forced to fondle themselves or expose themselves. One victim was raped.

“We kind of anticipate there may be more victims out there because this goes back to February,” said Oklahoma City District Attorney David Prater, as quoted by Michigan Live. Authorities are urging any other potential victims of Holtzclaw to come forward. Keep reading »

Black Actress Octavia Spencer Is “Red Band Society”‘s Resident “Scary Bitch”

Having already seen “The Fault In Our Stars” and “Glee,” I don’t think I’ll be tuning in for Fox’s “Red Band Society,” a new dramedy produced by Steven Spielberg about teenagers living in a hospital. But it’s come to my attention that on a promotional ad for the show, which debuts September 17th, the Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who is Black, is labeled the “Scary Bitch.” Portraying Black women as unpredictable and scary — gee, we’ve never seen that in Hollywood before. To be sure, the show’s labeling of other characters in the promo ad isn’t too original either. For example, the hot blonde girl is the “Mean Girl” because of course she is. Still, Spencer’s “Scary Bitch” label stands out as especially harsh and problematic. There are plenty of ways to portray someone as an antagonistic character without relying on a tired stereotype. Would “Nurse Ratched” have gone over America’s collective heads? (If so, go watch “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” now.)

Today in Things That Make Me Want To Scream “CORRELATION DOES NOT EQUAL CAUSATION!” And Beat My Head Against The Wall:

Last year, a study out of Michigan State University found that the erotic BDSM trilogy Fifty Shades Of Grey “perpetuates” abusive relationships. Now, another study from the same professor at MSU claims young women who read the books are more likely to have an abusive partner and show signs of an eating disorder.

Women who read all three books in the trilogy (like me and Amelia), the study found, are more likely to binge drink and have multiple sex partners. Amy Bonomi, a professor of Human Development and Family Studies and lead author of the study, said that based on her study of over 650 young women ages 18 to 24, it’s possible the Fifty Shades books might “reaffirm” negative experiences and “aggravate trauma.” In other words, this lady r-e-a-l-l-y does not like these books.

Well, well, well. Where to start with this one? Keep reading »
