Abortion Is Why There’s No Money For Social Security, Says Politician

“The Social Security system, in my opinion, is a flawed design, period. But having said that, the design would work a lot better if we had stable demographic trends … we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees. Well, a third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion. … [My wife and I] have seven children, so we’re doing our part to fund the Social Security system.”

— Quick, ladies, go have some babies! Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum blames legal abortion — yes, abortion — for Social Security being such a mess. Good one, Senator. Did it ever occur to you we’d have to feed, clothe and educate all those youngsters, too? Ever consider how footing those bills might set the country back? This silliness is only slightly less entertaining than the Tennessee Kentucky senator who asked why, if women can have abortions, he can’t have a super toilet. [The Hill] Keep reading »

Activists To March On Toronto For A “SlutWalk”

What Are SlutWalks?

SlutWalks are sexually empowering for women! Read More »

All women are responsible for their own rapes, duh, which is why a Toronto police officer brilliantly advised the female students of Osgoode Hall Law School in January that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” Yeah, a cop actually offered that as a “safety tip.” In response to this victim-blaming, “sluts and allies” are taking to the streets on April 3 for a SlutMarch. The activists organizing the event say they’re taking the term “slut” that the police officer used in a derogatory manner and re-appropriating as a point of pride, which I love. Canucks can find all the SlutWalk details here; we hope some Frisky readers will attend and tell us about it. Watch out, Toronto — the sluts are coming! (Thanks to commenter Taurwen for the post idea.) [SlutWalk Toronto, Excalibur CA] Keep reading »

How To Handle Awkward Moments Without A Panic Attack

Karma’s a bitch, dude. This morning, I was frolicking through Starbucks, smiling to myself about how awesome my life has gotten. On Friday, I’m moving out of my parents’ house and into my own apartment. Today I woke up next to my new Gentleman Caller the night after we decided to date each other exclusively. The sun is shining. The birds were trilling. Tra la la la la la la!

And then I ran into the woman whose ex-boyfriend cheated on her with me two years ago. A woman who didn’t respond to my multiple apologetic emails because, let’s be honest, she probably hates my putrid guts. Keep reading »

Rihanna Loves A Good Spanking

Want To Try Spanking?
Doin' It With Dr. V explains how to spank and be spanked! Read More »

“Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your s**t. That’s fun to me … I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned — you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I’d rather have him use his hands.”

Rihanna may sing in “S&M” that “chains and whips excite me,” but IRL the girl just loves a good old-fashioned spanking. Hawt. [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

  • More sexy photos of Christina Aguilera have leaked (allegedly from the hackers wrecking havoc on female celebs) including several where Xtina is allegedly mimicking oral sex on dude and a chocolate covered banana.

Ohio Passes "Heartbeat Bill"

Ohio passes "Heartbeat Bill" to criminalize abortion at 6 or 7 weeks. Read More »
  • Virginia’s governor has signed into law a bill which requires abortion clinics meet the same regulations as hospitals — despite the fact they offer different types of services. Abortion rights supporters say the bill is an attempt to thwart women’s access to abortion. Seventeen of the state’s 21 clinics may need to shut down before they are up to par with the hospital-like regulations now required. [Ms. Magazine]
  • Journalists covering the Walmart sexual discrimination lawsuit say justices don’t seem supportive of the class-action lawsuit filed by former female employees. Oh, joy. [Wall Street Journal]
  • Mexico provided its state employees a 92-page manual on how to avoid sexist language in the workplace, such as asking women, “If you want to work, why did you have children?” or saying “You’re prettier when you keep quiet.” Um, can we get one of those over here? [Daily Mail UK]

North Carolina Crowns A Bald Beauty Queen

I love it when a beauty pageant doesn’t push a tired, old beauty standard! This weekend, the 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina pageant crowned the state’s very first bald beauty queen. Sandra Dubose-Gibson, 37, lost all her hair at age 25 when she developed alopecia, an autoimmune disease that attacks the hair follicles. Sandra, who works as a singer and an inspirational speaker, says she wants to continue to spread her message of embracing inner beauty, which she found once she accepted that her hair did not define her. That’s the kind of pageant message I can actually get behind.

After the jump, check out a music video for her song “I’m Beautiful,” which shows Sandra venturing out in the world with a bald head for the very first time: Keep reading »

Man Makes A Quilt From 58 Pairs Of Women’s Panties


What sort of man sews a quilt from 58 pairs of women’s panties? Louis Garrett of Missouri, that’s who. With his hoary beard, tattoo across his forehead, and wife beater tank, he’s a Creepy McCreeperson sent from Central Casting.

Louis only wants women’s panties made from rayon, acetate, and silk for his panty quilt — “no polyester, I don’t want none of them cheap, dollar store, not sexy farm girl panties. I want classy!”

Classy indeed. Just like Louis himself. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
