Dr. Drew Pinsky is utterly clueless about about bondage, dominance, and sadomascochism in relationships and has no business discussing them on national television. That is my conclusion after seeing Dr. Drew brought in as an “expert,” and yes those air quotes are intentional, on “The Today Show” recently to discuss the book 50 Shades Of Grey. As you may have heard, the explicit, erotic BDSM romance novel about a dominant/submissive relationship has become extremely popular with women across the country — slightly surprising considering how being whipped and spanked is not everyone’s cup of tea. I have not read 50 Shades myself yet, but I’ve read numerous other BDSM novels, short stories, and  true-life tales, and I’ve been in consensual submissive/dominant relationships since the age 18 or 19. So I can say with 110 percent confidence that he does not know what he is talking about and Dr. Drew actually did a huge disservice to women and men when he called the book “actual violence against women.” Keep reading »

Xoxo.” It would totally be weird if the two of them got together for sexytimes … but I’m not going to pretend I haven’t replayed it through my mind. [The Daily Beast]

Today’s Lady News: NC County Says Young Women Should Be “Responsible” & Not Have Sex

  • Dear Man I Am Sleeping With And Other Men I Might Sleep With In The Future: The New Hanover County board of commissioners in North Carolina has turned down a state family planning grant because they decided instead that young women should be “responsible” by not having sex. “If these young women were responsible people and didn’t have the sex to begin with, we wouldn’t be in this situation,” said Chairman Ted Davis. I really think he is onto something! Clearly we need to stop being such sluts. I’m sure you’ll understand why we can’t have sex anymore. Ever. [Daily Kos]
  • Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who was called a “slut” and a “prostitute” by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show for testifying to Congress about birth control in health care reform, penned an op-ed on CNN.com. [CNN]

“I don’t even feel like it was a mistake anymore. I don’t really believe in the concept of mistakes. Now I’m very sensitive to any pictures taken of myself at photoshoots and whatever because the internet has this very weird —especially people in politics — this very weird reaction to my body, because I’m not super skinny. I have large breasts. I know! They’re real, I can’t do anything about it and the internet just has this really weird reaction to my body … I’ve seen a therapist about it, if that means anything. There’s like this obsession (with my body). I think people don’t understand why I haven’t lost a bunch of weight right now, because [sarcastic] ‘all women in the media should lose a bunch of weight if they want to go on television to talk about anything.’” 

– Meghan McCain discusses BoobGate (aka that time she tweeted a very boobalicious photo, apparently by accident) and how much negative attention that’s been heaped upon her body as she’s become a conservative pundit. Now, I’ve always thought Meghan McCain was nepotistic and kind of annoying. But in the past few years, I’ve admired the way that she’s taken every incident where a douchebag has tried to body-shame her or slut-shame her and fought back. Unfortunately, I’m not the least bit surprised that bullying from Glenn Beck would send a girl into therapy! [YouTube via Nerve]

“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me, but they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim, they all want to control women. They want to control how we dress, they want to control how we act, they even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and our own bodies. Yes, it is hard to believe. But even here at home, we have to stand up for women’s rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us because America needs to set an example for the entire world.”

Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton spoke this weekend at The Daily Beast’s Women In The World summit and reminded us why we’re grateful to have this woman representing us to the world. I love how she spoke about extremists in general, not naming one religion specifically, and how she didn’t reference anti-abortion Republicans specifically, either. It makes it all the more powerful that she’s talking about the philosophy behind control, not sidelining her point by bashing anyone in particular for doing it. [Nerve]
