Seven Minutes In Heaven With Andy Samberg

Andy Samberg 7 Minutes In Heaven
Watch Video

“Seven Minutes In Heaven With Mike O’Brien” is usually one of the sillier web comedy series, IMHO, but this NSFW video is just stupid. Stupid-stupid. But hey, maybe Andy Samberg getting a dildo rubbed all over his face is funny to you. [Pop Culture Brain] Keep reading »

Herman Cain and Anita Hill photo

Poor Herman Cain just can’t catch a break, can he? Why, he can’t even make a joke about Anita Hill without those screeching harpies telling him it’s inappropriate to joke about sexual harassment when you’ve been publicly accused of sexual harassment yourself! Just because at least five women have accused the wannabe GOP presidential candidate of getting handsy doesn’t mean he still can’t crack jokes about getting an endorsement from Anita Hill, the professor who famously accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. What a victim! Keep reading »

jessica lowndes I Wish I Was Gay
Watch Video

I don’t mean to be hater, but I don’t get Jessica Lowndes‘ “I Wish I Was Gay” music video at all. The title didn’t exactly lead with high expectations, but the content of the video is going to make this women’s studies minor’s head explode: She’s performing at a burlesque club when her cheating boyfriend shows up, she “punishes” him by hopping into his lap in a corset and fishnets, bending over to reveal her panties, and rubbing her boobs in his face. Yeah! Woo hoo! You go, girl! That’ll show him!

On November 2, feminist activists organized together to protest Facebook’s refusal to remove pages that contained jokes about rape and violence against women from their site. Facebook’s Terms of Service bans language that is “hateful, threatening,” or contains “graphic or gratuitous violence” — which you will quickly find out if you make a “joke” about, say, dragging a black man behind a pickup truck. And if you post pics of yourself breastfeeding or anything just “too sexy,” like Courtney Stodden did, you’re in trouble. But Facebook rationalizes that their Terms of Service doesn’t include “jokes” of hate, threats, or gratuitous violence against women — because those are joke-jokes, right, bro? 

The progressive web site Change.org collected 188,000 signatures asking Facebook to ban rape jokes and jokes about violence against women. Throughout the day on November 2, activists tweeted the names of offensive pages like “We’re gonna have sex tonight” “Why?” “Because im stronger than you are” to the @Facebook handle on Twitter.  And finally — finally! — Facebook listened and responded.

Sort of. Keep reading »
