  • Victim blaming! Racism! The trial for those involved in a videotaped gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in Cleveland, Texas, is, predictably, a demoralizing shitshow. You’re going to need to go to your happy place for awhile after reading this one. [Houston Chronicle]

Ke$ha’s Not A Whore Or A Drunk, But A Feminist

“If men can talk about drinking in every awesome rock ‘n’ roll song and every awesome rap song, why can’t a woman? Just because I drink doesn’t mean I’m a drunk. Just because I have sex, and I’m not embarrassed doesn’t mean I’m a whore. If men can do it, why can’t a woman do it? I really feel one of my main reasons for being on this earth is to level out the playing field just a little bit.”

Say what you will about how Ke$ha and her “oh, this severed Sasquatch head? I just found it in my closet” schtick is massively, massively annoying. But ”Die Young” is a pretty rad song and I love how she’s speaking out against the double standard in pop music. Right on, sister. [College Candy]

You thought you were so smart, America, didn’t you? Between the Republican presidential nominee who flip-flops on reproductive rights to various Republican politicians who declared pregnancy resulting from rape is God’s special blessing, you thought you had that “war on women” thing in the bag.

Well, you’re wrong and Fox News is here to tell you all about it. “War on women”? Poppycock. The real war raging in America is a war on men. This is according to Fox News columnist Suzanne Venker, the niece of 86-year-old anti-feminist Phyllis Schafly, who took her poison pen to Fox this weekend in an effort to blame “angry,” “defensive” women for the supposed lack of “marriageable” men.

After the jump, let’s delve a little deeper into the fracas that has me dashing off to the nearest sports bar after work to salve the wounds of these poor, beleageured men: Keep reading »
