New Hampshire Governor Vetoes Anti-Abortion Bill

Today's Lady News photo
  • New Hampshire’s governor vetoed an anti-abortion bill today that would have classified the death of a fetus as a homicide, which is a sneaky tactic by pro-life activists to restrict abortion rights by granting  fetuses the rights of full human beings. [Feminist.org]
  • Vice President Joe Biden has released a powerful new anti-violence against women PSA called #1is2many. Give it a watch and tell me what you think? [Feministing]
  • An East Texas high school mishandled the case of a high school student who was raped, according to a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. The student, Rachel Bradshaw, was forced into a disciplinary program and was told to “work it out” with the young man who sexually attacked her, which she says created a hostile educational environment.

High Flying Birds, "Everybody's On The Run"

I never understood what was the big deal about Mischa Barton, other than a pretty face and a nice body and some decent-enough acting skills. She stars in the “Everybody’s On The Run” music video for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and, well, she’s inexplicably running around in leopard print bra and panties. Edgy, I guess? [YouTube]

Alec Baldwin Drops His Drawers

Two things make Kathie Lee Gifford very upset: cannibalism and everyone dropping their bras and pants. I was not aware that bra-dropping is sweeping the nation, even during the heatwave, but I’ll grant KLG that Alec Baldwin dropping his drawers on “Letterman” last night was weird. Really weird. Yeah, it changed the subject from Smacking The Paparazzi-gate. But come on. It was hairy old man legs TMI.

Why You're Not Married ... Yet

I’m going to say something as a feminist ladyblogger that I suspect I’m not supposed to say: Why You’re Not Married … Yet: The Straight Talk You Need To Get The Relationship You Deserve, by Tracy McMillan, actually isn’t a terrible book.

Oh, it has some problematic aspects — and I’ll get to those. But generally what’s wrong with books like Why You’re Not Married … Yet or 2009′s Marry Him! The Case For Settling For Mr. Good Enough, by Lori Gottlieb, isn’t the actual content. I’ve read a decent number of self-help books, both for professional reasons (to write about them on The Frisky) and for personal reasons (to find out why am I such an idiot when it comes to boys), and I even read that godawful Steve Harvey book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man because my surrogate mother gave it to me. I’m open-minded to reading them, I guess you could say. So, while Why You’re Not Married … Yet is getting bopped everywhere from Jezebel to The Good Men Project, who titled their piece “Fuck Off Tracy McMillan,” I’ve actually read the book and what’s more, I loved it and found it extremely useful. What’s wrong with Why You’re Not Married … Yet isn’t the dating advice — it’s how that dating advice is only marketed towards women.

Band Aid Accessory
Stupid trend alert: Band-Aids as fashion accessory. Read More »

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a new ripped cuticle or thumbtack stab every day. If you’re going to be a walking gore-fest, you may as well wear a Band-Aid more chic than those “Dora The Explorer” ones you found at CVS. Well, “chic” may not be the right word. But these Urban Outfitters Band-Aids with the World War II “Keep Calm And Carry On” logo are certainly more historical. You might just find that you’re giving yourself a boo-boo on purpose so you can look smart. [$8, Urban Outfitters]

  • Happy 30th birthday, Prince William! Wills stands to inherit $15.5 today from Princess Diana’s estate, who left him the money in her will. The original will said both Harry and William would get part of her $31 million cash bonanza at age 25, but the age was raised to 30 after her death. Somehow, I don’t think the boys suffered much in the ensuing years. [MSNBC]
