This piece by Reproductive Health Reality Check does a really fantastic job explaining why phrases like “forcible rape” and “legitimate rape” hurt victims and don’t help people who need care.

Check It Out: Intel & Toshiba’s Social Film “The Beauty Inside”

Watch The First Episode!

I pretty much use Facebook exclusively to post pictures of my dog and complain about the outcomes of my favorite reality TV competition shows. But plenty of other people — and companies — use the social networking platform in more creative ways. For example, Intel and Toshiba teamed up with director Drake Doremus (who did the movie “Like Crazy,” which I loved), and actors Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to create “The Beauty Inside,” a social film about a guy named Alex (Grace does his internal monologue) and his girlfriend Leah (Winstead). The film is broken down into a series of episodes in which, each day, Alex wakes up with a different face and body (he uses his Toshiba Portégé Ultrabook — product placement! — to document his changing appearance). The filmmakers held an audition process in order to cast actual audience members to portray Alex in his various states of appearance in the episodes and on his Facebook Timeline. You can watch the first episode above and check out the whole “Beauty Inside” social film on their Facebook page.

Seriously, you have GOT to hear this.

When someone dares to karaoke a Whitney Houston song, the end result usually falls somewhere between “tragic” and “ear-splitting.” So when this random girl stepped up to the karaoke microphone in the electronics department of a Singapore grocery store and cued up “I Will Always Love You,” nobody paid much attention. But when she started singing? Well, hit play to see for yourself (skip to 3:20 for that famous “And IIIIIIIIII” moment). Now someone get this girl a record deal and a show in a venue that doesn’t have a toilet paper aisle! [YouTube]

I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-”Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode, the theme of which, I’ve decided, was FACE.  Everyone was giving it. Mostly not on purpose. There was also plenty of farting and snot. Obviously. Some of my favorite moments after the jump. Keep reading »

An Open Letter To The “Big Brother 14″ Jury

Reality TV Meltdowns
Our 10 favorite reality TV meltdowns. Read More »

Dear Members of the “Big Brother” Season 14 Jury,

Seriously, y’all are a bunch of butthurts. As a longtime fan of “Big Brother,” I am ashamed of you for voting for Ian to win “Big Brother 14″ over Dan. (Danielle, I can’t give you too many props for voting for Dan to win, because you only did so out of loyalty and loyalty in this game is bullshit. You should have voted for him because he deserved it.) The only reason you all voted for Ian over Dan was put best by Ian himself: he “played a slightly cleaner game.”

That is the worst reason EVER to award someone $500,000. If the choice is between someone who played a dirty game and someone who played a clean game, I can see why someone might choose the saint over the sinner. But faced with two liars, I would pick the one who lied the best, the hardest, the most convincingly, the one who lied with his hand on a Bible, on his wedding ring, and on the cross owned by his dead grandfather. That person, again and again and again, up until the very last second, was Dan. And you all fell for it. Ultimately, the only reason you didn’t vote for him to win in the end was as simple as … U MAD?!?!?! Keep reading »
