“Feminism is dead in the world. It comes from another time. I’m a feminist. I want to fight, but I don’t see many people with this desire to fight for something. Women don’t help each other, especially in fashion. I know Miuccia [Prada] … but that’s it. Nobody else.”

– Oh look. Commentary from noted gender studies scholar Donatella Versace, who allegedly said she did not want her line for H&M photographed on “real women” for a New York Daily News promotional feature instead of professional — and likely thinner — models. That may be a more business-savvy viewpoint to take, but not such a feminist one.  (And make an effort to look a little bit less like Victoria Gotti, because I seriously cannot tell them apart.) [Telegraph UK]

  • Don’t want to be sexually harassed on the subway system in Shanghai, China? Then don’t dress like a slut! Someone within the subway authority posted a photo of a woman wearing a revealing dress to the number two subway line’s official Weibo account — the country’s version of Twitter — along with the comment: “If that’s what you wear on the subway, then no wonder you will be sexually harassed! There are perverts riding the subway every day and we can’t catch them all. Girls, you’ve got to respect yourself!” Ab. Surd. [MSNBC]

Erica Watson on Standup In Stilettos
Watch "Standup In Stilettos" This Saturday!

Get real, girl, you are not going be able to get those opening weekend tickets for “Magic Mike.” Instead, park your butt on the couch this Saturday night at 10/9c for “StandUp In Stilettos.”  That’s the night that friend-0f-The-Frisky Erica Watson — who was in “Precious” a few years ago and will be in “The Bitter Pill” with Rooney Mara and Jude Law in 2013 — perform. The other performers are Paula Bel (from season seven of “Last Comic Standing”) and Felicia Michaels (winner of American Comedy Awards for Funniest Female).  I promise, they will be only slightly less entertaining than Channing Tatum on the pole. [YouTube]

Strip clubs in the fair city of Houston, Texas, will soon be hit with an interesting new tax: a $5-per-visitor tax which will go towards paying for a backlog of the city’s 6,000 rape kits. The Houston City Council passed an ordinance on Wednesday which will require almost 30 gentleman’s clubs to fork over the funds, which will then be used to pay for analyzing DNA evidence collected from rape victims.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I refuse to believe that this is true. Star magazine reports that Avril Lavigne has is drying her tears from her breakup with (gag) Brody Jenner in the arms of the Prince Of Darkness. Marilyn Manson pulls some pretty amazing tail, including Dita Von Teese. Rose McGowan, and Evan Rachel Wood, but … Avril Lavigne?!?! Can’t he smell the fakery on her “I’m a bad-ass punk rocker!” schtick from three states away? Like, three big Western states? But no, Star claims the pair have been “platonic friends for years” and are now “hooking up” because they’re both single. “It’s not really serious yet, but they’ve definitely got a little love connection going on,” said the source. A love connection! Far be it from me to deny the world a love connection. I just think Avril could find someone a little less creepy and abuser-y, you know? Watch out, Tay-Moms, you’re obviously next. [Celebitchy] [Images: Splash News]
