Only Decent People
Booty Popping

Anyone out there in the Frisky-verse speak Dutch? Because I would really love to understand what is going on in the trailer for “Only Decent People” (“Alleen Maar Nette Mensen”), a new film in The Netherlands that many people are decrying as racist. The film is about a white Jewish guy who dumps his white girlfriend when he realizes that he really loves a woman with a big booty, so he starts dating black women. Clutch Magazine reports that the black community in The Netherlands is cricizing the film and the novel it is based on, for portraying black women as “hyper-sexual” and most valued by society for the size of (some of) their asses.  And watching the trailer, even in Dutch, it’s not hard to see how they came to that conclusion.

Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I’m like, “Wait, what is a One Direction?” This stands in stark contrast to my lifestyle in the ’90s, when my love for boy bands–namely the Backstreet Boys–was so intense I spent all my time talking about them, listening to them, watching their music videos, going to their concerts, writing them semi-desperate letters, making artful collages of their headshots, buying behind-the-scenes DVDs, and planning my inevitable BSB wedding. Yep, I knew–and still know–pretty much everything there is to know about the Backstreet Boys, but I know pretty much nothing about One Direction. Here are nine specific discrepancies that my 14-year-old self would be ashamed of… Keep reading »

JWOWW’s Engagement Means The Double Wedding Of Our Dreams May Come True

Word has it that Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews. Don’t bust out the champagne just yet though because it’s all hush hush for now, as MTV reportedly wants her to save the big news for filming of season two of “Snooki & JWOWW.”

That’s a little anticlimactic, but congratulations to them if it’s true. Their relationship has been beyond tumultuous, but they truly seem to love each other, so I’m not surprised to see them take this next step, especially with her BFF Snooki settling down with a baby and getting engaged herself. It tends to happen like that with friends — when one jumps on the marriage-and-baby bandwagon, it starts a whole string of events.

And you know what the best possible event that could happen next is? A double wedding of course. Read more …

Every Kid Deserves To Have A Farting, Pooping Doll

A Pooping Doll!
Kong Suni farts on command!

I’m of the opinion that the sooner kids figure out how the whole eating/farting/pooping cycle works, the better. Kong Suni, the gassy baby doll sweeping South Korea, does just that. Designed to help with the potty training process, this apple-cheeked doll eats cereal, farts when you press her tummy and eliminates waste in a tiny commode complete with an adorable little poo poo. Because poop is cute in Korea! Best part is, Kong Suni passes gas on command (a skill I have yet to master). I would have killed to have a doll like this when I was a kid. My Cabbage Patch Kids didn’t do anything on command. But I suppose that was what my little brother was for. [The Stir]

German fashion magazine Brigitte got caught up in the “real women” craze a couple of years ago, and instituted a “no models” policy on its pages. It was a bid to appeal to the not-stick-thin real world, where women, you know, eat. But three years after creating the policy, the magazine is abandoning it, claiming that it was too difficult to find “regular” women who could do the job.

The editor originally made the change because she felt that models didn’t offer a fair representation of real women. She wrote: “Today’s models weigh around 23 percent less than normal women. The whole model industry is anorexic.”
