Have you seen “Precious” yet? It’s everything the buzz says it’s going to be: Gabby Sidibe plays Precious, who has been raped by her father and had two children by him, and Mo’Nique plays the abusive mother who calls Precious the most vile names and throws a TV set at her head. Incest, physical violence, verbal abuse … it’s a heavy one.
So I’ve been asking myself why I watched the movie in a Jersey City (New Jersey) theater, sitting next to a woman who held her toddler son in her lap the whole time. Just how recently out-of-the-womb was this little chubster? Young and socially unaware enough that when the movie was over, he walked straight over to my Diet Coke and touched it, putting his germy little hands all over my straw. Maybe 3 years old? Possibly only 2? Keep reading »
this was going to happen: an Italian-American organization in New Jersey
has complained about MTV
‘s newest reality show, “Jersey Shore,”
because of offensive, stereotypical language it uses to describe Italians. In a promo for “Jersey Shore,” the voiceover promises the beach-going partiers will “keep their hair high, their muscles juiced, and their fists pumping all summer long.” Apparently, a reputation as the “hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos” is not something that the group UNICO National
would like to enforce. Keep reading »
Though it seem as though all of Middle America is intimately familiar with the folds of Tila Tequila‘s vagina, nay, it isn’t true! Until this Tila Tequila sex tape hit the Internet, we could only imagine how she looked while masturbating to the smooth sounds of cheesy R&B. (Though, honestly, at 27 minutes long, it’s a bit lengthy for our tastes.)
Alas, it’s a very not-safe-for-work kind of affair and there’s no way in hell our lawyers will let us link to it. So click through Gawker to watch at your own peril, okay? [Gawker]

Most colleges these days have a women’s group and lots of colleges have a Women’s Studies, or even better, a Gender & Sexuality Studies program. But recently, male students at Oxford University and Manchester University in the U.K. have started their very own “men’s groups” to work through their issues with the current state of dude-dom.
According to an article in the Guardian, the men’s groups, which are called Man Collective and MENS Society (Masculinity, Exploring, Networking and Support), respectively, have caused quite a bit of controversy across the pond, with critics saying they’re just glorified frats promoting sexist, macho behavior.
Could it be that modern day “men’s groups” are just a grown-up version of the He-Man Woman Haters Club (from “The Little Rascals”)? Keep reading »
If you’re feeling self-conscious about your winter wardrobe, then stay away from this Tumblr because you’ll just feel like crap. “The Diary Of Suri Cruise” is a near-daily blog of Suri pics and fake diary entries. The actual writing is very meh, but collecting pics of Suri’s outfits altogether was a brilliant move. Poor kid may have complete nutters for parents, but she’s got a closet to die for! The pink dress/gray cardigan/metallic leggings? The pigtails/red coat/silver kitten heels? The black-and-white polka dot dress with purple cardigan and green sandals? I swoon! This little Scientologist is about 10 seconds away from getting her “designer line,” I can just tell. [The Diary Of Suri Cruise] Keep reading »
She’s no Tina Fey, but this lady does a darn tootin’ believable Sarah Palin impersonation. [Wonkette] Keep reading »
