Sexist Against Sarah Jessica

While I am empathetic to the plight of the CW’s morning show “Eye Opener,” which I did not know existed until I saw this clip, and their desperate need to drum up controversy and attention, their sexist stunt right on the heels of chitchatting about a sexist stunt is beyond idiotic. On Friday, two male and one female hosts were gabbing about Gretchen Carlson jokingly walking off the “Fox & Friends” set after her male co-host made a sexist remark. After a little bit of banter about how the male cohosts had better behave themselves, one of them introduces the show’s next segment about Barack Obama fundaraiser like this: “Is a dog campaigning for Obama? No, not Sarah Jessica Parker!” Hardy-har-har. (Also? People say she looks like a horse, not a dog.) Now go back into obscurity where you belong and learn some grownup humor. [Think Progress]

It was easy to roll one’s eyes at Elizabeth Wurtzel’s recent piece on TheAtlantic.com, “1 Percent Wives Are Helping To Kill Feminism And Make The War On Women Possible.” Although I understand the point Wurtzel was trying to make (educated women who don’t advance in the workforce and financially support themselves/their families are bad for feminism) she couched the whole thing in kind of bombastic, linkbait-y statements like, “I am going to smack the next idiot who tells me that raising her children full time — by which she really means going to Jivamukti classes and pedicure appointments while the nanny babysits — is her feminist choice.”

But I want to go a little deeper than the eye-rolling. I want to look at the phenomenon of self-described feminists — like Wurtzel — judging other women’s choices. Keep reading »

Summertime is all about the colors on your nails and, girl, have I got the color for you: Anardana, from the Thakoon for NARS collaboration. Gorgeous, right?  This color is professional enough for work, sexy enough for a night of dancing under the stars, and girly enough for a picnic in the park. But if this rich pink hue doesn’t do it for you, Thakoon for NARS has got five other colors evoking an Indian spice market. I think I’m in love. [$18, NarsCosmetics.com]

Last month, the Interwebs were abuzz over pics of with two Airmen breastfeeding in uniform. Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna were not violating a specific policy against breastfeeding, but an Air Force spokesperson said Airmen must project a “professional image at all times while in uniform.” They were somewhat lucky: earlier this month, the spokeswoman for Mom2Mom, the organization behind the nursing pics, found herself out of a job. Crystal Scott was fired from her job as an X-ray technician in  Washington and was told by her employer it was “due to the media.” Keep reading »
