  • Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” tried so hard to get Lil’ Kim to talk trash about Nicki Minaj. And she valiantly succeeds in not giving in until this snipe: “If you have to make a song called ‘Stupid Hoe’ then you must be a stupid hoe.” Come on, Lil’ Kim! Can we not catfight? Please? Stop egging Kim on, Andy Cohen! [Dlisted]

  • Somebody has just cursed himself a lifetime of callused handjobs on Valentine’s Day: a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, received a handwritten message from a fellow student this Tuesday telling her, basically, that she was dressed like a slut! As you can see from Brittany Molina’s not-at-all-revealing outfit and the snotty letter above, her dress, cardigan, and tights made some dude feel as if he was not “safe, morally as well as physically” in Britt’s boobalicious presence. An Honor Code like this in practice can become little more than an excuse to slut-shame female students when they dress in a way that makes your weenie tingle. I don’t have any problem with a school having a dress code for both genders. But I do have a problem with people policing the way other women dress in a shameful and punishing way. You know, like in Afghanistan or at the CPAC conference. [The Daily What]

Which Moronic Comment About Birth Control Was NOT Made Today?

It has been a long and aggravating day of the government trying to restrict our access to birth control.  A panel of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee ensured the worst PR ever when it convened a bunch of men — men with penises! I repeat, no one with an actual uterus — to discuss the birth control mandate in Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Their party line is that they were just discussing “religious freedom,” meaning, I guess, the freedom for a small minority of religious employers to impose their beliefs on everyone else in the country? I don’t know, I’m still not clear on their point other than “Wah, wah.”

Not surprisingly, silliness is in the water and it has proven a bang-up day for dumb comments about birth control all around. Of the following three comments about birth control, two are actual real things that people said, and one was made up by me. See if you can the difference. Birth control …  

A) … causes prostrate cancer! 

B) … isn’t necessary because women should put aspirin between our knees (or, debatably, inside our vaginas) instead!

C) … increases greenhouse gases!

After the jump, find out just how “Ugh, really?!” our elected officials are:

Feminist Pornographer Tristan Taormino On Being In The Male-Dominated Porn Industry

10 reasons they watch. Read More »

“There’s this experience I have repeatedly which is so symbolic. I work for this big company, Vivid Entertainment, and you walk in the second floor, the editing suite, and there are anywhere between five and eight men, sitting in front of computer screens, watching naked women have sex. I am the only woman in the room, and I am the only woman with clothes on. And that sort of says it all, right? I’m interrupting this hetero-normative male-dominated space. All of a sudden I show up, and all the women they’ve been interacting with for the past eight hours have been naked and moaning and I am not doing either of those things! So I feel like it’s symbolic of the industry, because, in fact, I am a total minority as a woman, and even more so as an out queer woman and as an out feminist. Ultimately, the people who are in my bubble, my production crew, the performers that I work with, everyone at Vivid, is 100 percent awesome; they really support my work, they believe in it, they get it, if they don’t get it, they trust me enough to go do what I want to do.”

— Feminist pornographer Tristan Taormino (also the author of The Ultimate Guide To Anal Sex For Women, amongst other books!) on what it’s like to be a woman who makes pornography in a male-dominated industry. Vivid Entertainment is the same company that offered big bucks to royal embarrassments Pippa and James Middleton and the woman with two vaginas — so it may not the classiest company out there, but at least they’re evolved enough to have hired a sex-positive feminist with a decent idea what other people —women, who’ve have thunk? — want from their porn.

They could have had it all! But instead of rolling in the deep, Adele’s ex-boyfriend (this goofball) is releasing an album of his own called Dan 21 featuring sure-to-be-chart-topping hits like “Someone Like Me” and “You’re Welcome.” Sigh. It has just occurred to me that I could have monetized my breakup with Ex-Mr. Jessica much, much better. [Mirth Mag]
