The past four months of my life were really, really s**tty and hard. I got dumped suddenly by someone with whom I was in love. I moved out of the apartment we shared together and back in with my parents for three months. The Frisky was sold to new owners and we’ve all had to adjust to that (with a smaller staff) while working from home since we don’t, as of yet, have a new office space. All of that happened within a few weeks of each other. Can you say stress? My coping mechanisms were crying jags and burying myself in my bedsheets with “Keeping Up In The Kardashians” on Netflix Instant.

As if naming their sloppy Joe sandwich a “Manwich” wasn’t macho enough, a company is now explaining why commercials advertising their product show dudes talking about “feminine
” or “gay
” topics like hair and musical theater and then getting smacked in the face while a male voice growls, “It’s called a Man
This guy uses hair products? Given to him by a guy named Alejandro? Smack him!
Uh oh, it’s the Be A Real Man police … Keep reading »

“I actually feel really bad for my father. He was abused, too — he got beat up by his stepdad when he was young. He has resentment toward women, because he felt like his mum never protected him, and unfortunately, my mother was the victim of that. I’m not giving him excuses. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I still blame him. But I understand the source.”
— Rihanna opened up about her father’s physical abuse at home and the domestic violence she grew up with (and later experienced in her infamously abusive relationship with ex Chris Brown). I’m always pleased when someone contextualizes an issue like domestic violence like this. As much as people — myself included — want to hate on someone like Chris Brown for being “a bad guy,” we also have to remember that abusive relationships don’t just happen out of thin air. There’s a cycle of violence that victims and perpetrators are looped into. It’s very big of Rihanna to say that while she still blames her dad and his parents for their negative impact on the family, she accepts it for what it is.

,” starring Emma Stone
, was a fun flick about a girl branded as a “slut” in high school. Funny it ’twas, but realistic? Not quite. “Daydream Nation” (which hits theaters on April 15 in Canada and May 6 in the U.S.) looks a hell of a lot more realistic. Kat Dennings
stars as a high school girl who arrives in a new town with a reputation and, it seems from the trailer, sets her sights on both a hot guy and
a hot teacher. Looks good!
But why is it that in every high school sex film, the guys are trying to get as much poon as possible and the girls — whether sexually active or virginal — are all dealing with getting called “sluts”? Seriously, you need a new script, Hollywood. [Lainey Gossip] Keep reading »
Do you love hip hop? And you think gays, lesbians and transgender folks are, you know, actual people? Then you have to check out the music video for “Imma Homo,” a rap song by a group of MCs under the record label Rainbow Noise. (The audio is NSFW; use headphones.) The rappers run the gamut from ultra-femmey lesbians to ultra-butch dykes and everything in between; their lyrics proudly declare “Imma homo” with lines about “my lezzie peeps,” and watching Logo (the gay channel).

A woman who was sexually assaulted by her date from Match.com — a man with six separate convictions for sexual battery — is now demanding the online dating site take steps to screen out criminals.
Would we all feel safer if sexual predators with a criminal history were screened from online dating sites? Of course. But is it practical? Keep reading »
Ladyparts are oh-so-problematic. They smell. They’re hairy. And when you wear super-tight clothing, they don’t automatically invert inside your body like an oyster to prevent camel toe. Can’t a girl give herself a yeast infection in peace? Luckily, the marketplace has generously stepped in to “help” us “solve” this beguiling conundrum. We just heard about the Smooth Groove, an invention out of Britain that looks like a snazzy, black-and-white athletic cup. Smooth Groove’s website claims, without attribution, “A staggering 55 percent of women, irrespective of age size or weight experience camel toe at some point.” Um, really? Who is conducting those surveys?! No one has ever asked me about my camel toe. [Smooth Groove]
Let’s check out some more camel toe prevention products for those who like their dignity intact, as well as their leggings extra-snug.
