Manwich Reminds Dudes Not To Act Gay (Or Else Get A Sandwich To The Face)


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 Manwich!”

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 »

Rihanna Blames, But Understands, Her Abusive Father

“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.

Kat Dennings In “Daydream Nation”: It’s Like “Easy A,” But Darker


Easy A,” 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 »

Today’s Lady News: Interracial Marriage Should Be Illegal, Say 46 Percent In Mississippi Poll

  • Interracial marriage should be illegal according to nearly half of Republicans polled in Mississippi. That’s the finding of a small poll of 400 people by Public Policy Polling (PDF). Forty-six percent of “hardcore Republicans” polled said interracial marriage should not be allowed by law. Is it any consolation that 40 percent of “hardcore Republicans” said interracial marriage should be kept legal? Not much. (To be fair, some say Public Policy Polling is liberal-slanted. However, The Economist magazine claims the pollsters are accurate regardless of a slant.) [The Economist] (Thanks to commenter LR52185 for the story!)
  • Defense contractor KBR was named one of the “top firms for women” by Women Engineer magazine, despite the 2005 scandal where employee Jamie Leigh Jones was drugged, raped and then locked in a storage container by her bosses. It boggles the mind. [Mother Jones]
  • Anyone else notice all the women of color contestants have been voted off “American Idol”? [AlterNet]

Do you love hip hop? And you think gays, lesbians and transgender folks are, you know, actual people?

Bluffing With Your Muffin: 6 Products To Shop Away Your Camel Toe

6 Products To Hide Your Camel Toe

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 preventĀ 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]
