Dating Don'ts: Criticism
It's time to put a moratorium on beating yourself up. Read More »

I’ve been thinking a lot about a date I had this weekend. I’m not sure that the guy and I are a right fit for some compatibility reasons, but we did end up having an interesting conversation over coffee on Saturday night. We were discussing the different ways that online dating sucks for girls and for guys. Girls, I was telling him, are inundated with creepy, overly sexual messages from random dudes, including dudes who are way, way, waaaaay too old for us. And this guy was telling me how for dudes, one of the worst things he experiences on a date with a girl is when she is too guarded and gives off a vibe of “I don’t need you.”

The  stereotype may be that women are “too needy,” this guy told me, but the reality of dating strong, successful, accomplished, financially independent women is the exact opposite. “Okay, great, so what role am I supposed to have?” This guy asked me hypothetically. “It’s great if a girl’s got her life together. I think that’s awesome! But I need her to want me to be there because she needs a partner in some way, or else, what’s the point?”  Keep reading »

WTF Are You Wearing, Bill Murray? Oh, Who Cares, You Can Do Anything You Want

Bill Murray's plaid Cannes jacket

Bill Murray upstaged the rest of Cannes doing what he does best: being a lovable old coot who doesn’t give a fuck. I’m sure Anna Wintour is riding her senior editors as we speak figuring out how to get plaid-on-plaid-on-plaid in the next issue of Vogue.  Bill walked the red carpet for Wes Anderson’s new movie “Moonrise Kingdom” and appears to have brought along his own mini-camera to capture the occasion. As you do. Keep reading »

Coat Hanger Abortions? No Biggie!

  • Here’s a lovely comment on the value of a woman’s life from Republican Mississippi State Represenative Bubba Carpenter. In a video filmed a county GOP meeting, Rep. Carpenter is heard saying (emphasis mine), “You have [pro-choice supporters] … like, ‘Well, the poor pitiful women that can’t afford to go out of state are just going to start doing them at home with a coat hanger.’ That’s what we’ve heard over and over and over. But hey, you have to have moral values. You have to start somewhere, and that’s what we’ve decided to do.” Women permanently injuring themselves or even dying from unsafe, illegal coat hanger abortions, just like in the good ol’ days? Hey, no biggie! [Huffington Post]
  • Human Rights Watch says immigrant female farmworkers are suffering through sex abuse rather than standing up for themselves and possibly facing deportation. [Washington Post]

The Best Part Of Working On A Campaign? Sex With A Secret Service Guy, Apparently

sexy vote photo

As much as I love it when women’s magazines try to inject political coverage in between the beauty tips, sometimes the end result is a painful FAIL.

Take a piece on Glamour.com about working on a presidential campaign: “It’s like one giant summer camp whirlwind!” What does that mean, exactly? Well, if you’re a woman working in the campaign trail, it means “a lot of sex and drinking,” trying to sleep with a Secret Service agent and fattening up on all the free muffins.  Keep reading »
