  • Whoopsies! Scout Willis, 20, was arrested in New York City on Monday evening for drinking an “eight-ounce Pakistani beer” while underage and handing cops a fake ID. You would think Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ daughter would know better than that. I can’t believe that the drinking age is 21 in this country! Stupid behavior all around, yes, but Scout is hardly the first underage drinker out there. [People]

Paycheck Fairness Act Blocked By Senate Republicans

  • Republicans in the Senate blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act in a 52-47 vote through a filibuster. Bummer, dudes. The bill would have strengthened the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and tightened up some loopholes in pay inequity. [Think Progress]
  • Doctors are speaking out against anti-abortion activists’ claims that Plan B can cause an “abortion” by blocking a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb. Plenty of politicians, including Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmman, have referred to the morning-after pill as “abortive pills” or “morning-after abortion pills.” Just because you keep repeating something doesn’t mean it is medically true, guys! [New York Times]
  • Also, Representative Cliff Stearns of Florida has suggested criminal punishments for women who have abortions. [Reproductive Health Reality Check]
  • A Republican campaign spokesman in New York who suggested in a Facebook wall post that people “hurl some acid” on female Democratic senators has resigned. [The Nation]

Poor men. They’ve been sleepwalking through life trying not to screw up the first date or the first kiss. Those events are important, duh, but there is a booby trap lurking underfoot: The real big deal that dudes have to try not to screw up is the grand unveiling of his living quarters.

No, ladies are not judging the size of your place or whether you live in an apartment or a house.  What women really judge you on? When we meet a guy whose cute, smart, and funny and then his place is nasty and dirty. If your place looks like the “Jersey Shore” house at the end of the summer on a typical Tuesday night, we’ve got problems. Rather, you’ve got problems.

So, gather ’round men and grab your Scrubbing Bubbles. This is what women hate about your filthy apartment: Keep reading »

When I’m really upset there is only one person I want to talk with: my mom.

“Mom?” I said, my voice wobbling. “Ashley got into med school.”

“That’s great!” Mom exclaimed. Like me, my mother has known Ashley since we met in kindergarten.

“Yes … but … she got in med school in Israel. She’s moving to Israel in July.”

“Good for her!” My mother didn’t understand what I was trying to tell her.

“Well, yes, it’s good she got into med school, but Mom, she is moving to ISRAEL in less than two months. Friggin’ Israel. Another one of my best friends is moving away. I should just move across the Atlantic Ocean at this point.”

“Oh.” Pause. “Maybe you’ll make some new friends?” Keep reading »
