So what do we think of this Daddy’s Little Project Diaper Bag? It is designed to look like a tool belt, with a ton of pockets, and comes with blueprints on how to change a diaper.
Now, a diaper bag is just a bag you put diapers in, so clearly this is all about marketing. Some people — like Amelia, whose guy friend owns one — think the toolkit diaper bag is totally cute. [Cute enough that, made for "men" or not, I would want one for myself. -- Editor] Others — like me — see how it’s a cute product, but also think it’s as annoying/offensive as the pink-ification of products to signify they’re “for women.” I mean, diaper-changing blueprints? Men aren’t stupid. Keep reading »
It’s “Love Yourself Week” here on The Frisky, and I totally misinterpreted what that meant. So instead of writing about socks and lube and “True Blood, I’m going to write about platonically loving myself. I’ve read my sister-from-another-mister Amelia’s epic post about the things she loves about herself, and I just read Jessica’s excellent piece. These public expressions of identity are subversive, considering the money that can be made promoting self-loathing. If everyone is pretty, who will buy apricot-scented face spackle? It’s easier to sell a cure if you give the disease away for free. What I most love about these personal whoops is that they’re introspective. In order to truly love yourself, you have to be capable of forgiving yourself for being a human tornado of emotions, fears, and appetites.

Hey laaaaaaaadiessssssss, wanna know how to tell if your husband/boyfriend is a homosexual? Christwire.org, a website which purports to provide “conservative values for an unsaved world,” has a list of 15 signs your man is a friend of Dorothy’s, “drawing on the expertise of spiritual and medical professionals.” Here are the ones that had never occurred to me. [UPDATE: Apparently, this is very well-written parody. Fooled me!] Keep reading »

Over at Aslyum, our male counterparts wonder if there’s a reason to go to yoga that goes beyond ogling women’s bottoms.
“Are you interested in yoga but turned off by the heavy, feminine aura, New Agers and sitar music? Neal Pollack, writer, provocateur and reluctant yoga genius, wants to show you another side of the exotic workout with his new book, Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude.”

Every once in a while, a singular man emerges out of all the double rainbows, cats wearing wigs and Lady Gaga fan fic, and proves himself to be a truly exceptional asshat. These very special guys say and do offensive, obnoxious and borderline illegal things and then POST ABOUT IT ON THE INTERNET — and for that we think they should all collectively probably never get laid again.
Earlier this week, a new d-bag tossed his ring into the Crappy Internet Dude pool. Adam White was a whiny blogger/frustrated writer who outed the identity of Twitterer TeleEroticist — a female blogger who wrote hilarious missives on her experiences as a phone sex operator — to her family. White was seemingly bitter that TeleEroticist’s writing — along with that of other women writers like Julie Klausner — was getting notice while his own highly fascinating blog, “Reasons Why I Hate Girls,” was not. This guy is just one of a zillion out there who mistakenly believes that a woman’s success comes at his own expense. But perhaps, dear Adam, these female writers are getting book deals because they’re talented and you’re not, baby.
After the jump, we’ve assembled some of the worst dudes to ever grace the internet’s tubes in one handy list. It’s not simply that these guys suck; they suck in particular because they hide behind the protective safety of their computer monitors (safely out of kicking range) in order to say and do truly horrible things. Get ready for douche chills. Keep reading »
