Why You Should Always Ask A Woman To Reveal Her Age

Today is my birthday. I’m 26 years old today — but I look much younger. With my big, brown eyes and round cheeks, people who don’t know me often mistake me for being in my early 20s or even in my teens. (It probably doesn’t help matters that my maturity hovers around the “Yo Gabba Gabba!” level at times.) Looking younger than my actual age is both a blessing and a curse. It is difficult, as a young-looking woman, to be taken seriously by older people when I discuss politics, society or culture. I’m not going to complain about being told that I “look so young,” though, when the latter is meant as a compliment. Who doesn’t enjoy compliments?

The Personhood FL Spring Break Tour 2010 will head to West Palm Beach and other beaches starting next week, where it plans to distribute 30,000 petitions to challenge the constitutionality of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal.

Barbara Walters Regrets Asking Ricky Martin If He Was Gay

I’m so glad I’m not a celebrity because I know at some point, I’d want to slap Barbara Walters. That bitch is nosy! At least Babs can admit she sometimes crosses the none-of-your-beeswax line: In an interview with The Toronto Star, Walters said it was “inappropriate” of her to ask booty-shaking Ricky Martin if he was gay in a 2000 interview.

In the decade-old chitchat , Walters asked the Latino pop star how he had been “enjoying” his sexuality, to which he awkwardly — and vaguely — responded, “I live la vida loca!” Keep reading »

Quotable: China Requires Its First Female Astronauts To Be MARRIED

“In the selection [of astronauts], we had almost the same requirements on women candidates as those for men, but the only difference was that they must be married, as we believe married women would be more physically and psychologically mature.”

— Zhang Jianqi, former deputy commander of China’s manned space program. Uh, how exactly? [AP] Keep reading »

17 Phrases We’re Tired Of Hearing About Women

Sometimes a girl just gets sick and tired of all the cutesy little words and phrases that exist to describe women. I mean, cougar? Puma? Cheetah? Who can keep them all straight?

Depending on the situation, most of my life I’ve been called either a “princess” (for wanting what I want when I want it) or a “femi-Nazi” (for being a feminist with thoughts and opinions).

Oh, but one lucky day I’ll be called a M.I.L.F., or even “a woman of a certain age.” Can you tell that I just can’t wait?

We at The Frisky put our pretty little heads together and made a list of 17 words and phrases about women and girls that we’re just sick and tired of hearing. Won’t you let us know which ones you’re done with, too? Keep reading »
