  • Chris Brown denies he tried to pick up a lady with the “joke” line “I promise I won’t beat you.” As much as I am sympathetic to celebs having crap made up about them, I genuinely, 100 percent believe that Chris Brown is so immature that he would have said really this. [PopCrush]

Today’s Lady News: I Think They’re Just Messing With Us Now

  • Oklahoma’s state Senate advanced a “fetal personhood” bill on Wednesday that criminalizes all abortion by defining a “person” as the fertilized egg. A bill like this would also criminalize in vitro fertilization, stem cell research, and some birth control. This is the bill that had a proposed amendment by State Sen.

All abortions would be classified as feticides, a class A felony punishable by life imprisonment without chance for parole, under a new bill introduced on Wednesday by Iowa State Representative Kim Pearson, a Tea Party Republican. Pearson’s bill states:

Any person who intentionally terminates a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and consent of the pregnant person, where death of the fetus results, commits feticide. Feticide is a class A felony.

Under the bill, doctors who perform abortions could spend life in prison and doctors who attempt to perform an abortion (but don’t go through with it, for some unclear reason) would be charged with the class B felony of 25 years in prison.  Keep reading »

Watch Video

Back in 1985, cartoonist Alison Bechdel drew a “Dykes To Watch Out For” cartoon describing the three rules that govern whether or not she will see a movie, which she called “The Bechdel Test“:

  1. It has to have two women in it who have names,
  2. Who talk to each other,
  3. About something besides a man.

Bechdel’s point was that the majority of mainstream films relegate women to the role of “girlfriend,” “wife” or “princess in a tower who needs to be saved by a knight in shining arming” and this is problematic for women’s substantive representation in film. Unfortunately, 25 years later, a lot of movies still don’t pass the Bechdel test, including 2012 Oscar nominees. Keep reading »

Michelle Duggar’s Tips For A Happy Marriage Include Being “Financially Dependent” On A Man

Michelle Duggar marriage tips

I won’t beat around the bush: “tips for a happy marriage” from Michelle Duggar are as bad as they sound.

In the season premiere of “19 Kids and Counting” this week, the reality TV mama (whose family is stumping for Rick Santorum) is filmed at a conference on how to have a happy, evangelical Christian marriage in which the man is the authority and head of the household.

Michelle passed out tips from her lecture to the audience and a viewer screengrabbed the advice, where it was posted on Television Without Pity. Not suprisingly, you might want to “keep a barf bag handy” as Faith Goes Pop blogger Lilit Marcus puts it, because Michelle Duggar’s happy marriage tips include become financially dependent on your husband, always keeping your hair did, watch your weight, and being more “loyal” to him than your family and friends.

You can read some of the more egregious tips from “7 Basic Needs Of A Husband” — the workbook off of which Duggar was reading — after the jump:    Keep reading »
