Today’s Lady News: What White Men Can Do For Feminism

Today's Lady News
  • One concrete, important thing that white males can do to further the feminist cause is to refuse to speak on panels comprised of all-white men, writes Cord Jefferson at the web site GOOD.is.

But if white males refused to commit to speaking unless women and/or people of color are added, Jefferson writes, this problem could eventually be solved. What do we think of this proposition?

Watch Video

Is there anything cuter than an old married couple who are still in love? Reverend Kathryn Cartledge and Elizabeth Eve have 30 years together, but cannot be legally married in their home state because of bigotry against gays. This ‘We Do’ campaign video of the North Carolinian lesbians applying for a marriage license and then holding a sit-in at the clerk’s office until they get arrested has me wiping the tears off my cheeks. Have tissues handy when you watch it! [Queerty] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “Women Aren’t Discriminated Against Anymore,” Says Romney Advisor

Today's Lady News
  • An advisor of Mitt Romney’s 2012 GOP presidential campaign, Robert Bork gave an interview with Newsweek where he criticized the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. “Women are a majority of the population now—a majority in university classrooms and a majority in all kinds of contexts,” Bork said. “It seems to me silly to say, ‘Gee, they’re discriminated against and we need to do something about it.’ They aren’t discriminated against anymore.” Oh my.

I’m sure there were at least 10 things you spent hours berating.  If mom and dad came in with a credit card and offered a permanent solution, would you take it? Be it a boob job, ear tuck, lipo, lip injections and hell, while we’re at it, a cortisone shot for that zit that won’t go away. Most teens would jump for the chance, and the case was no different with Nicolette Taylor. The 13-year-old from Long Island was featured on ABC News after her parents paid for her rhinoplasty.

The reason for getting plastic surgery at 13? Bullying.
