You thought all you had to worry about with Netflix was a big old scratch across “The Nanny Diaries” DVD, didn’t you? But be warned: if you’re LGBT and still in the closet, competitors in Netflix’s recommendations contest might be on to you.

According to the tech blog Switched, “Jane Doe,” a closeted lesbian mother, filed a lawsuit against Netflix last week because she claims the DVD rental company is violating consumers’ privacy by inadvertently making their personal business, like sexual orientation, known to the public. The lawsuit seeks $2,500 for each of Netflix’s customers, which are now over two million people. Keep reading »

Merry Christmas, Here Are Nude Photos Of Sarah Palin

There’s nothing I hate more than when Sarah Palin has a point. So thank you, Zazzle.com, for validating her complaints about sexism with these belittling Christmas cards.

One has a little boy telling Santa he wants “Peace on Earth, an end to war and some nude pics of Palin” (after the jump); the other pictures Palin dressed as a scantily clad Mrs. Claus in high heels and a bustier.

You know what I want for Christmas? I’d like an attractive female politician to run for office without everyone treating her like a bunny from the Playboy Mansion. Might that be possible? Keep reading »
