Today’s Lady News: Watch “Miss Representation” On OWN Tonight

Today's Lady News
  • Tonight is the television premiere of “Miss Representation,” a new documentary about how women are depicted in the mass media. The doc was written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newson and features commentary from Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Steinem, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson, and my friend Jennifer L. Pozner, who runs a feminist media watchdog group called Women In Media & News. “Miss Representation” is airing at 9 p.m. (EST) on OWN, Oprah’s network — make sure you watch! [MissRepresentation.org]
  • An FBI subcommittee voted unanimously yesterday to change the official definition of “rape” so it includes a broader range of rapes other than just “forcible” ones against women. The existing definition did not encompass rapes committed against men or rapes that were not physically aggressive, such as those committed after slipping roofies in a person’s drink. The definition still needs to be approved by FBI Director Robert Mueller, however. [Feminist.org] Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: Men Who Are “Old Guy Hot”

Woody Allen is not most people’s idea of a pin-up. But Diane Keaton, who starred in Woody’s iconic films “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan,” says their romance blossomed over her attraction to his “great body.” (For his part, Diane says Woody fell for her because “he loved neurotic girls.” How … sweet?) In the 65-year-old actress’ memoir, Then Again, she writes:

It was his manner that got me, his way of gesturing, his hands, his coughing and looking down in a self-deprecating way while he told jokes. He was even better-looking in real life. He had a great body, and he was physically very graceful.

I still don’t see it — either ’70s Woody or the Woody Allen of today, who is a bona fide senior citizen at age 75. The guy just screams “geeky sex perv” to me. But hey, to each their own.

Diane Keaton does have a point about something, though: sometimes a younger woman’s attraction to an older dude isn’t necessarily because he’s “hot,” but because he is good-looking for his age. Call it, if you will, “old guy hot.”  

After the jump, dudes who are our fathers’ grandfathers’ age who we still think are pretty fine! [Daily Mail UK]

An “Intimacy Kit” For Hikers

Any Girl Scout worth her merit badges knows to always “Be prepared!” But my Scout leader never got to the part about doing the horizontal polka out in the woods. Fortunately Mountain Gear, an outdoor sports supply web site, has got any grownup Girl Scout covered.  Their “Backcountry Intimacy Kit” — sounds so sexy, doesn’t it? — contains three lubricated condoms, two packets of lube, four wet wipes, four compressed towels and a disposal bag. Making love by the campfire can be sexy, safe and clean!   Keep reading »
