Chart: Good Cat Calls Vs. Bad Cat Calls

The other day Winona and I were walking back from getting sandwiches (women always be eating sandwiches!) and a guy on the street told me that he liked my tights. It was a mellow cat call, or what I, and other ladies from Philly, like to call a “holler.” Sometimes, guys will straight up ask if they can “holler at you,” but often, a holler will occur on the street or in the bar without warning. We’ve provided this handy chart to help you discern whether the holler you’ve received is of the mild, non-offensive “streetpreciation” variety, or something more sinister and wanton.*

*All hollers referred to in the above chart actually happened to a member of the Frisky staff or one of our friends, lest you think this phenomenon doesn’t exist.

You Are The Worst: People Who Wear Smittens

If I see you and your significant other swanning around with this heart-shaped “smitten” snuggle hand warmer, I’m going to roll my eyes at you. You two are monsters, really, if you buy this. It’s gross! Gross! Nobody wants to see your egregious display of love and affection in mitten form. PDA is one thing, but smitten wearers, you disgust me.  [$18, Etsy]

A Baby Sloth In A Onesie So Cute I Want To Punch It

This sloth in a onesie situation is just … it just … it needs to stop. These orphan sloths with mange are so adorable I kind of want to hurt them, in the same way some people (not me!) want to hug babies to death or punch sweet dogs in the face. It’s overwhelming! I could cry! Just, ugh, your helpless, alien-like little arms reaching out for comfort are making me want to die inside. [Buzzfeed]

I love Dan Savage for a number of reasons. Among them, the “It Gets Better” campaign and the dumb but true advice that “every relationship fails until the one that doesn’t.” Aside from that, I love Dan because he offers smart, non-judgmental advice about sex and relationships, but will totally tell his readers if they’re doing something stupid (see also: DTMFA). So I’m really excited to see Dan in action — so to speak — on the new MTV show “Savage U.” “Savage U” follows Dan and producer Lauren Hutchins0n as they travel around college campuses answering embarrassing and need-to-know questions. You might not be in college, but chances are, you still want to know if a guy can tell if you’re faking an orgasm, right? (Debuts April 3 at 11 p.m. EST.)  [MTV]

Well lookie here, it appears that Lindsay Lohan’s promos for her episode of “Saturday Night Live” aren’t looking so bad after all. This weekend will be her fourth time hosting, so she knows what she’s getting into, and supposedly has told producers that “nothing is off limits.” Hopefully they’ll be mildly kind (while still packing a punch). We’re rooting for you Lindz — though we’re really not sure why! [Pop Culture Brain]
