  • Prince Pierre Casiraghi of Monaco — aka Grace Kelly’s grandson — got pummeled in a bar fight at a New York City club this weekend.  Pierre, 24, and richy-rich friends like Stavros Niarchos (Paris Hilton’s ex) were partying at a club called Double Seven and were apparently “being completely obnoxious” to a nightlife impresario and his pals. Fists started flying and now the prince’s face looks “broken, with deep cuts and blood everywhere.” Tsk, tsk. [New York Post]

  • Westboro Baptist Church — the ones that pickets outside gay soldiers’ funerals — tweeted a photoshopped pic that made it look like they were holding “God Hates Fags” signs outside of Whitney Houston’s funeral, which then got RTed by media outlets as if it were real. Whoopsies. [The Daily What]

One of the scariest anti-abortion bills in the U.S. right now is Virgina’s “mandatory ultrasound” bill, which requires a woman seeking an abortion to be vaginally penetrated with a speculum and ultrasound probe. The doctor operating the transvaginal ultrasound will then reflect that image onscreen; women will be forced to undergo this procedure to have an abortion even if they don’t want it. There is absolutely no medical reason to do a transvaginal ultrasound before an abortion, the bill doesn’t provide any exceptions for victims of rape or incest, and opponents of the bill have pointed out that it is, oh, you know, mandating doctors to sexual assault their patients.

Nevertheless, that scary bill passed Virginia’s House of Delegates last week.  Now one politician, Delegate David Englin, a Democrat, is trying to draw attention to the fact that if abortion providers are required to probe women with transvaginal ultrasounds against their will, ultimately these doctors will be punishable under VA’s “object sexual penetration statute.” Keep reading »

Fox News contributer Liz Trotta would like to clear up a few things. First of all, when she spoke on the Pentagon’s decision to officially open up more combat positions to women and said women in the military should “expect” to be raped by their male comrades, she “certainly did not” mean all military men. Just most of them! Okay, okay, just some of them. Well, that part isn’t clear either. The point is, men have testosterone, “testosterone rules,” ipso facto, testosterone makes men rape-y. Whatcha gonna do?

But anyway, this discussion is all besides the point. The real focus of our ire here should not be on Liz Trotta, Liz Trotta says. It should be on feminists and The New York Times

Oh, if only I were making this up. Keep reading »

The only good part about Republican politicians and their “Occupy Your Uterus” campaign is that it’s terrific fodder for political cartoonists. Case in point: cartoonist Matt Bors (who draws for places like the LA Times and the Village Voice) has doodled a bunch of pro-choice cartoons that actually made me chuckle about the day when us unwed wenches will have our hymens checked by the village wizard. Ugh, you’re the worst, Rick Santorum. [MattBors.com]

I’m so accustomed to seeing penises scrawled on Reese Witherspoon’s face on those “This Means War” posters that it’s refreshing to see graffiti that’s not an ode to the male anatomy. Oh, I’m sorry. Are we not supposed to call it “graffiti”? Is it called “street art” because the doodles are on posters for “Mad Men,” which is a classy show? So be it. It’s “Mad Men” street art. And here are 10 that are pretty clever. [ONTDBest Week Ever]
