It’s The Rap Coloring Book!

Whether you’ve got 99 problems or you’re a motherfuckin’ monster, chances are you probably like coloring books. (Everyone likes coloring books.)

Too bad Nicki Minaj is excluded, because you totally could have used all the crayons in your box coloring on her crazy hair. [ANIMAL New York]

D.L. Hughley On Black Women: “Angry All The Time”

Today's Lady News photo
  • Actor D.L. Hughley said some offensive shit on NPR about women, especially black women, in a recent interview. Regarding women, he criticized our ability to reason and said, “If a man can have a face only a mother can love, then women can have personalities only fathers can love.” Of black women in particular, he said they are “angry all the time” and ”I’ve never met an angrier group of people.” BRAIN. EXPLODES. Later on in the interview, he says he “respects” black women, which is so unapparent in the rest of what he says. [NPR via Naturally Moi] Keep reading »

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:

Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which represent young women being defined, but always ironically — with a wink and a nod — by their sexuality and/or bodies.

Old Sexists (or Classic Sexists), they explain, are Republicans in Congress — people my parents’ age — whose outdated beliefs about gender and sexuality could be attributed to just not getting with the times. Hipster sexists “should know better,” the authors write, but don’t, and try to pass it off as funny and/or ironic.

I am a person who is very ambitious and aspirational in life. I’ve found that jealousy is the emotion I tend to listen to most, because it is filled with clues. When I feel envious of someone, I ask myself what is it that they have that I want, do I really want it, and what do I have to do to get it.

It’s become clear to me over the years that I feel pretty set career-wise. I have a lot of confidence in myself and that confidence gets reinforced.  I genuinely believe that I can achieve most things I want if I truly set my mind to it. Not that I haven’t struggled before, but there have only been a few examples of ways in which I’ve disappointed myself. I feel only a little envious towards other people’s careers.

Instead, the place where I find myself feeling the most envy — and its attendant emotion, insecurity — is in relationships. I covet the relationships of absolute strangers.  The perceived relationship, anyway.  Keep reading »
