Today in India is a celebration called Akshaya Tritiya, a Hindu and Jain holy day which is marked by mass marriages. But human rights supporters in India, such as UNICEF, are using the day to draw attention to a less jubilant topic: child brides. Child marriage is officially illegal in India, but that hasn’t stopped too many families from marrying off their young daughters ages 5 to 12 to older “grooms” — which is another way of saying sex slavery. Today, the Wall Street Journal points out one of the more controversial of the anti-child marriage campaigns, called The Girl Store, a website set up to look like an online retailer that advertises “100 percent genuine girls. Young. Innocent. And available. Experience the sensation of buying a girl.” Keep reading »

“I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people too. And sometimes life isn’t easy for any of us.”

– Ann Romney spoke to Republicans in Connecticut last night and addressed, in a somewhat roundabout way, the recent kerfluffle by Democratic consultant Hilary Rosen who made dismissive comments about how Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.”  This is an odd wording, though: “I love the fact there are women out there who don’t have a choice.” But whatever, I just think her husband should have policies to back it up! [Think Progress]

Carlton Banks From “Fresh Prince Of Bel Air” Hosts Very Necessary Dance Party Flash Mob

Watch Video

Carlton Banks was secretly my favorite character on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.” Even then I knew he was a dork after my own heart. These days Alfonso Ribeiro is keeping busy hosting dance party flash mobs to the Tom Jones song “It’s Not Unusual,” like this one filmed on the Universal Studios City Walk in Hollywood. Apparently he was trying to break a world record for most people dancing to the same song at the same time around the globe. (It brings pain to my heart that I cannot embed the video on The Frisky, but you can watch it here.) Glad to see you’re still awesome, Carlton Banks.

What have you been up to lately, Will Smith? Another stupid “Men In Black” movie? Feh. [The Sun UK]
