Disturbing Baby Shower Trend: Vagina Cakes

Disturbing Baby Shower Trend: Vagina Cakes

You might remember the woman who found herself with a penis-shaped cake pan and attempted to find creative ways to use it. That was satire. This birthing cake is not. The Pinterest user who made this cake — featuring a strawberry vagina giving birth to doll head — and posted it with the caption: “The Baby shower vagina cake I made for my best friend! So funny yet so disturbing♥♥”

And she’s not the only who’s minus a best friend after showing up at her baby shower with a bloody vagina. There are vaginal funeral cakes and crowning uterus desserts all over the internet. This leads me to believe that birthing cakes are a thing now.  I’ll begrudgingly participate in the poop in the diaper game, but I flat-out refuse to eat a slice of labia/uterus /fetus layer cake at your baby shower, even if it’s made out of chocolate sprinkles and pink buttercream. Sorry, it’s just going to work for me. [Mommyish]

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” said Florida’s Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd in regards to the announcement that Vivian Vosburg, 30, of Lakeland, FL, the stepmother of one of the cyberbullies who tormented Rebecca Sedwick, 12, before her suicide, has been charged with child neglect and child abuse. Vosburg is the stepmom of the 14-year-old girl who was arrested for aggravated stalking after Rebecca, a middle schooler, killed herself in September by jumping off a building. Vosburg was not arrested in connection to the bullying, which took the form of both in-person and online harassment; instead, Vosburg’s arrest is in connection to a video she posted on Facebook of her beating her own children.

Diablo Cody On Directing: A Woman Is “Expected To Constantly Prove Yourself”

“As a woman you’re still expected to constantly prove yourself, whereas men are allowed to have flops without people blaming it on their gender. If a man has a flop, people will blame it on a variety of factors. But if a woman directs a movie and it doesn’t do well, suddenly it’s because she’s a woman. That’s aggravating to me.”

Here’s “Juno”‘s Diablo Cody speaking to IndieWire about her newest film, “Paradise,” which she directed and wrote while she was pregnant and the mother of small children. Cody said she used to be skeptical about why there weren’t more women with kids who were successful directors but now she is certain that the demands of motherhood and the guilt that working women face “100 percent” has to do with it. She’s such a kickass screenwriter and filmmaker that I hope motherhood doesn’t change too much for her. I look up to you, Diablo! [IndieWire] [Image via WENN]
