Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

We’ve never advocated actual drug use on The Frisky. (Seriously, have you ever read Valley Of The Dolls? Not fetching.) But the idea of a glamour drug completely intrigues us. Imagine not having to spend all that time gluing on false eyelashes and coloring your lips bright red! So we’re digging this “Glamour Is The Drug” shirt with big Rolling Stones lips, which looks like the perfect tee to wear under one of this fall’s hip leather jackets. You might even say we find its awesomeness totally addictive. [$39, Revolve Clothing] Keep reading »
We met when I delivered his mail, a task performed by all the interns. But I liked to think I was different: I was an eager little NYU journalism student, desperate for attention, and I chatted with all the editors as I passed their cubicles. Many magazine editors on the top of the masthead are a bit standoffish and see interns, especially ones who want to talk while they’re busy, as an annoyance. But the Older Man was actually inquisitive and kind; we’d chitchat a little bit, a welcome reprieve from the other editors who could be cold and snappish. Keep reading »
You believed French women looked gorgeous naturally, didn’t you? Quel suprise! Airbrushing is causing unrealistic body images and encouraging eating disorders, said a French politician on Monday as she proposed warning labels on digitally enhanced images. Parlimentarian Valerie Boyer and 50 other French politicians want a “health warning” on airbrushed pics. All enhanced photos would be accompanied by this line: “Photograph retouched to modify the physical appearance of a person.” Under the proposal in France, a company that didn’t include the warning on their retouched ads would be slapped with a trés mal fine of a $54,930, or up to 50 percent the cost of the advertisement. The French proposal comes on the heels of a suggestion by British pols for warning labels of their own. But what we want to know is how long until such a proposal comes to the States, where we just love our Photoshop? (And can you imagine what Anna Wintour would have to say about it?)

Like any fag hags worth their weight in pink cocktails, we know all about “bears” — big, broad-shouldered men who throw gay pals into a tizzy. And when it comes to koala bears, we’re delighted to hear the females like to swing both ways in groups! Yup, lesbian koala orgies—steamy, sexy and cuuuute—are rockin’ the eucalyptus trees. Researchers have found female koalas reject their male suitors and pleasure each other, sometimes in groups of five at a time! Interestingly, though, female koalas appear to only go gay when they’re not in the wild. A study of 130 koalas in captivity found 15 cases of straight koala sex and 43 cases of gay koala sex among lady koalas only. (You’d better hope none of these frisky critters had chlamydia—it can be a koala killer!) [New Zealand Herald]
But koalas aren’t the only critters who indulge in the love that dare not speak its name. Don’t tell Charles Darwin, but the animal kingdom is pretty gay.
A new book says Michelle Obama advised Barack Obama to use “Yes, we can!” as a campaign slogan, even though the president apparently hated his chief advisor David Alexrod’s catchphrase. According to Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, by Christopher Anderson, the president dissed the now-famous slogan, calling it “childish” and “corny,” and insisted, “I don’t like it.” Barack then ordered his staff to think up a better slogan, but Michelle assured her hubby, “It will work. Trust me.” Smart lady! Anderson also says that Michelle put the kibosh picking on Hillary Clinton as a vice presidential candidate and urged her husband to pick Joe Biden as a running mate instead. “Do you really want Bill and Hillary just down the hall from you in the White House? Could you live with that?”, she allegedly told Barack. (Guess he couldn’t.) We always knew Michelle was one of the president’s greatest assets! [Times of London] Keep reading »
“American white women can suck it, right, brah? They’re such ‘fat, whiny feminist bitches’—I mean, every single one that I dated wanted to eat food and be treated with respect and ridiculous stuff like that. Total feminazis, right? Cuz, you know, white women invented feminism and they’re the only people in the world who believe in things like equality in health care and education. Like I said on my blog, ‘I’ve lost ALL sexual interest in them, in fact I just about puke walking down the sidewalk on any day, seeing all those s**tty, rude, mean, snotty American women!’ Yeah, brah let’s go write more on our blog about how much American white women can totally suck it!
