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!

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 »
“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 »
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 »
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 »
