Today’s Lady News: Kansas Politician Compares Pregnancy From Rape To Getting A Flat Tire

  • Last Friday, the Kansas state legislature voted to ban insurance companies from covering abortions in their plans, except in the case of a woman’s life being at risk. That’s not good enough for State Rep. Pete DeGraaf, who is also an associate pastor; he wants no abortions, ever. When Rep. Barbara Bollier challenged him on that, Rep. DeGraaf told her, “We do need to plan ahead, don’t we, in life?” Bollier replied, “”And so women need to plan ahead for issues that they have no control over with pregnancy?” To which DeGraaf responded, “I have a spare tire on my car. I also have life insurance. I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for.” OH NO, YOU DID NOT JUST SAY THAT. Epic facepalm. But he lists his contact information on his website, so I’m sure he’d love to hear what y’all think about this. Write State Rep. DeGraaf at pete.degraaf@house.ks.gov and petedegraaf@att.net or call 785-296-7693 and 316-777-0715. Please share any responses you receive in the comments. [Blogs.Pitch.com, Kansas Legislature]

Is Sarah Palin Moving To Arizona?

Gird your loins, Arizona: Sarah Palin might be moving in! The Atlantic Wire reports the former governor of Alaska allegedly bought an 8,000-square foot, $1.6 million home in a secluded area of Scottsdale, Arizona. The identity of the buyer is hidden on the property records, but the lawyer for the sale suspiciously replied “No comment!” when asked if the buyer was Palin. The fancy pad features six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a swimming pool and spa, a six-car garage, a wine cellar, and a guard gate. Damn! Keep reading »

Christina Hendricks’ Breasts Are Real, People

“It’s so bizarre that people are constantly asking if my breasts are real or fake. They’re so obviously real that anyone who’s ever seen or touched a breast would know.”

Christina Hendricks is in the unenviable position of repeatedly answering questions about her boobs. But she’s also in the enviable position of having Christina Hendricks’ boobs, so that about evens out, right? [Daily Mail UK]

Girl Talk: Confessions Of A (Maybe) Shopaholic

A year ago, my then-boyfriend and I argued about something. I can’t remember anymore what it was about. But I know it made me upset the night we argued and lasted until the next morning, all the way from my commute from New Jersey into New York City. Pent-up with frustration, I needed to do something to make myself feel better. So instead of walking straight to my office, I ducked into an H&M, grabbed skirts, dresses and blouses off the racks without even trying them on, and spent something like $200 or $300 on clothes in less than half an hour.

Chelsea Handler Looks Like A “Playmate,” Says NY Times

“Below the neck, Ms. Handler is arranged along old-fashioned lines. Writers have described her as a California surfer type, but the truth is closer to the fantasy. In person, without makeup, her body has the pre-silicone lushness of a ’60s Playmate.”

WTF? Regardless of your opinion on the comedienne Chelsea Handler (I love her, mostly), writer Cathy Hornyn’s third paragraph of her profile in Sunday’s New York Times is aggravating as all get out. Yeah, Handler is attractive. But what’s the point of describing her body? Is the author trying to imply it’s helped Handler in her success? (Whether it did or not is debatable.) Even if one does think Handler’s attractiveness is salient to the article, it really pisses me off that Hornyn referred to her subject as “Playmate”-like before even mentioning her successes as an author and TV show host. Would an attractive male comedian’s body be mentioned in the third paragraph of a NYT profile — or at all? [Personally, I thought the entire profile was snide. -- Editor] [NY Times] Keep reading »

“Saturday Night Live” Opens With A Rape Joke

I have a sense of humor. I swear to God, I do. But, damn it, rape jokes are never funny.

Even though the opening skit of this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” starred the only two black men in the cast as inmates at Rikers Island meeting accused sexual predator Dominique Strauss-Kahn (played by Taran Killiam), I was willing to go with it. Slightly racist casting there, but who knows, maybe they were the two cast members most enthusiastic about the material? Anyway, the skit was pretty funny: Keenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah played two guys locked in a cell bickering about the International Monetary Fund. I giggled a little, because it was silly. And then, at the end of the skit, Keenan says, “We’re going to rape you now.”

Today’s Lady News: Newspaper Almost Apologized For Lesbian Moms Article

  • The editor/publisher of the Annapolis Capitol newspaper sought to apologize to readers in an editorial for featuring a lesbian couple in an article about Mother’s Day. “Unfortunately for us, we lost sight of what the readers want to read: feel good stories about people who reflect their values,” wrote Tom Marquardt, in an editorial picked up by journalism blogs. “Newspapers need to mirror its readers — all of them perhaps, but inclusion not at the exception of the majority.” Reporters and other staff objected to the sentiment contained therein — give the people what they want, even if what they want is bigotry! — and it didn’t run. Still: lame, dude. [Gawker]
  • Maybe the Baltimore Capitol should do an article on this: support for gay marriage is at an all-time high, with a Gallup poll released today showing 53 percent of those polled said partners in a same-sex marriage should have the same rights as those in a traditional marriage. Other recent polls by major news outlets have also found support for gay marriage hovering between 51 and 53 percent. [The Atlantic Wire]
  • An image by photographer Cindy Sherman has sold for $3.98 million at auction, the highest ever for a photograph. “Untitled #96″ was created in 1981 and sold to New York dealer Philippe Segalot. [Pop Photo]
