Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has always been against a woman’s right to choose. As Texas governor, he has supported bills to restrict access to abortion and made public statements like “Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy.” However, Perry had believed abortion should remain legal in cases of rape, incest, or if the woman’s life is at risk.

Not for long: in the past week, Perry’s pro-life stance took a sharp — and deadly — turn to an even further extreme. And then, barely a day later, he backtracked on abortion yet again.   Keep reading »

  • Sinead O’Connor’s 16-day marriage tanked in part because of drugs. The happy couple spent their wedding night on a hunt for weed, ended up someplace “quite dangerous” in Las Vegas, and were handed “a load of crack.” (Also, uh, doing this.) Sinead said she had second thoughts about the nuptials — and, uh, the drugs — because hubby Barry Herridge is actually a drug counselor. (Probably not anymore!) Sinead had strong words for how badly their brief marriage fared: “It felt like I was living in a coffin. It was going to be a coffin for both of us, and I saw him crushed. The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man.” Ooooookay.[People]

The 10 Proudest Sluts Of 2011

The Best Of 2011!
Our picks for the best of the year in pop culture, style, sex, and more! Read More »

Slut. It’s an ugly word, isn’t it? Especially when it’s flung at you by some jerk who thinks the worst way he can insult a woman is by impugning her reputation. (Newsflash: it isn’t.)

But lots of unapologetically sexual ladies don’t let “slut” be a pejorative. Instead, they say, “Judgment be damned!” and wave their slut flag high and wide. They sleep with who they want, when they want, as much as they want, no matter what anyone else says. 

In the spirit of embracing sluthood, let’s tip our hats to the bravely hedonistic women (and a few men!) who make up  The Frisky’s 10 Proudest Sluts Of 2011!

  • Pippa Middleton, she of the world-famous derriere, fears she is “undateable” because of the media circus surrounding her every move. Pippa wants to get married and have children, but “she’s starting to wonder if she’ll ever find her Prince Charming.” Also, she has been a guest at seven weddings this year, which everyone knows is the worst.

Today’s Lady News: Report On Military Academy Sexual Assaults Released 2 Days After Christmas

  • Sexual assaults at the nation’s top military academies have increased from 41 reported incidents last year to 65 reported incidents during the 2010-11 school year, according to a Defense Department report released yesterday.  Again, these are just reported assaults; surely there are others, as with any institute of higher learning, which go unreported. The ladyblog Jezebel also think it’s hella sketchy that they released this information two days after Christmas, which is a notoriously slow time for news consumption. (i.e. It’s the political equivalent of J.Lo and Marc Anthony announcing their divorce at 5 p.m. on a Friday.) [Jezebel]
  • The non-profit EMILY’s List, which raises money for pro-choice female candidates, has ranked the GOP presidential candidates on issues relating to women and families, and Texas Governor Rick Perry, shockingly, is the least awful of the pack. [EMILY'S List] Keep reading »

Watch Video

Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we’d be caught watching unless there’s a “Ren & Stimpy” marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program “iCarly” in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to dance her socks off with Miranda Cosgrove and friends. Too cute! And if I’m not mistaken, that’s “Saturday Night Live”‘s Taran Killam playing a Secret Serviceman. Now pardon me while I find a nine-year-old who can tell me what channel Nickelodeon actually is. [YouTube] Keep reading »
