This Is My Body

“If I choose to have sex, I have the right to birth control and to be spared the demeaning insults that you’d never want leveled against your daughter or mother. My pursuit of orgasm is neither unnatural nor dangerous nor scary nor an infringement of your religious liberty. My sexual activity exists for my benefit, not your pleasure. And it’s never my fault if you rape me. I am done being excluded from decisions about my sexual and reproductive health. This is my body. Not yours.”

Tell it, sisters! This video is so kickass. I love the part at the end that goes, “Do not be afraid of a world in which women know themselves.” Definitely worth watching and sharing around. [Care2 via Facebook.com/ThisIsMyBody]

This weekend, the worst thing ever happened. And by the worst thing ever, I mean a used condom landed on top of my cell phone.

O’Boyfriend and I were, uhhhh, using a condom. And then we were done using the condom. And then because I  didn’t want it or its contents spilling on my bedsheets, I suggested he throw it in the wastepaper basket. So LeBron James over here tossed it in the direction of the trash … and it landed on top of my iPhone. Keep reading »

John DeVore on why funny women are a natural resource. Read More »
  • “The Office” actress/writer Mindy Kaling is so over this “Are women funny?” conversation. (As am I.) While speaking to the Television Critics Association, Kaling was asked about recent pay-attention-to-meeeee comments by “The Man Show”‘s Adam Carolla that women just aren’t as funny as men. “Anything about putting into question whether women are funny or funny writers, I can’t comment on because it’s just so ridiculous,” Kaling responded. “It kind of keeps the argument alive. I said in my book, it’s like a nonsensical argument that we choose to keep alive by commenting on. It’s just beneath everyone by having it be a debate.” Damn straight! [The Wrap]
