“Feminist is a bad word and everything they stand for is bad … Find out if your girlfriend is a feminist before you get too far into it. Some of them are pretty. They don’t all look like Bella Abzug.”

– O.G. feminist hater Phyllis Schlafly, to a group of cadets she’s instructing at the Citadel. She’s teaching a new course there titled “Conservative Intellectual Tradition in America” and wanted to warn the cadets that evil feminist impulses might be lurking beneath their demure feminine girlfriends.

Meet Francis Grady, 50, anti-abortion extremist. On Sunday night, he decided the best way to prevent unwanted pregnancies from being terminated at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute, Wisconsin, was to place a handmade bomb outside their window sill. The explosive device caused a small fire and the PP clinic had to close for one day. During a preliminary hearing yesterday regarding the clinic violence, Grady interrupted the U.S. Magistrate Judge to ask, “Do you even care at all about the 1,000 babies that died screaming?”  Keep reading »

Samantha Brick is a lady writer for the UK’s Daily Mail, which makes her, yes, perhaps less than 100 percent credible. She also thinks she’s totally the most gorgeous woman in the world. Don’t believe me? Just ask her. She wrote a 2,000 word screed on the subject for the paper. And she was entirely serious. In it, Brick details the daily struggles she faces as an extra-attractive woman. It is so difficult being so hot.

Somebody sounds like a Pantene commercial…

If you’ve turned on the TV at all in the past couple of weeks you’ve surely seen the “Shop to Win” commercials from Kohl’s. If not, here’s the general premise: a legendary female athlete (swimmer Dara Torres, skier Lindsey Vonn, and soccer star Mia Hamm have all been featured) sits in an empty room and talks about the intense experience of competing at a sport’s highest level. “When I’m out there, I am totally in the zone,” says Torres. “It’s a real adrenaline rush,” says Vonn. “I get pretty excited when I score,” says Hamm. But wait, there’s a twist! These women aren’t talking about sports… Keep reading »

Two weeks ago, Belvedere Vodka tweeted an ad depicting a man pulling a surprised, open-mouthed woman down onto his lap. The headline read: “Unlike some people, Belvedere always goes down smoothly.” Decent people got the skeevies and called the ad out as rapey. Belvedere quickly tweeted that they were sorry “if any of our fans were offended” — but not sorry for the actual creepy ad — and made a donation to the Rape And Incest National Network.

Now, Alicyn Packard, the actress who starred in a comedy sketch from which Belvedere appropriated her image, is suing its parent company Moet Hennesey. Packard’s lawsuit claims emotional distress from appearing in such a reviled ad and claims Belvedere did not have permission to use her image (misappropriation of likeness). The company allegedly ganked her image from a comedy video made by her company, Strickly Viral Productions. “To be affiliated with an ad that’s so offensive to so many has just been horrible,” she told KTLA.
