I’m still really pissed that Proposition 8 and all the other gay marriage bans passed on Election Day. And if I’m pissed, guess who’s more pissed? Gay people, who’ve just been told for the zillionth time that they deserve less than straight Americans. I chatted up a few of my gay pals on IM today, to find out how they’re reacting to the news.

In a recent Sunday edition of a Gotham City newspaper, The Frisky’s very own Vixen of Verbiage, Simcha Whitehill, wrote about a new scientific study that suggests three cups of coffee a day can cause a woman’s breasts to shrink. Bravely, Simcha refused to give up her morning cup of liquid caffeine, even if it meant her rack might decrease in size from voluptuous to less voluptuous.
The study struck a nerve with women, who are as obsessed with their breasts as men are. And women are equally obsessed with the perceived male obsession over breasts. And we are obsessed. All men love boobs; we can’t help it. Before seemingly sensitive and enlightened male readers lambaste me for my sweeping gender generalizations, let me just say: Shut up, dudes. You love boobs, too. Even those of you who signed up for, and thoughtfully participated in, Women’s Studies classes in college … You just did it to pick up hot, feminist nerd girls. Keep reading »
Looking like the ghost of Jerry Garcia, Joaquin Phoenix announced, via backwards knuckle scrawl, that he’ll be leaving acting to pursue a music career. Hopefully that idea will last as long as the ink on his hands, or he might wind up in MySpace band obscurity like Russell Crowe! Although, Joaquin certainly is talented, has a handsome voice, and we could watch him swagger all day. However, we’re worried the “Walk The Line” Oscar nom went to his head. It’s easy to feel like a successful musician when you’re pretending you’re Johnny Cash, but will the Phoenix be able to rise as a rock star? It remains to be seen. But is he really picking a better life for himself? Let’s help him see the light with a face off: rock star vs. actor!

You already know that the first Tuesday of November is Election Day, but the first Thursday of November may just trump that in the hearts and minds of all you coupled-up women out there: it’s National Men Make Dinner Day! The people behind the movement explain that the ideal participant of NMMDD is a man who: “helps with household chores, has a sense of humour and is a great all-around guy [who] loves his wife/girlfriend, kids and pets…BUT NEVER LEARNED HOW TO COOK, and is somewhat afraid of the idea.” In case your man needs some persuading, the NMMDD has a list of the top ten reasons guys should participate, including “Several recipes include beer as a legitimate ingredient,” and “Whoever is cooking always gets the most attention from the dog.” But what about you? While most of you probably love the idea of your husband or boyfriend donning an apron and rolling up his sleeves in the kitchen, you may have a few concerns — like what to do if his meal sucks — so after the jump, the people behind NMMDD answer a few Frequently Asked Questions to put your mind at ease…

Looks like Jennifer Aniston is back on again with her musician boy toy, John Mayer. After their summer break up, Mayer made amends: “Jennifer Aniston is the smartest, most sophisticated person I think I’ve ever met.” But it looks like Aniston isn’t putting all her eggs in his basket again because late last month she was spotted cozying up to Scottish ladies man, Gerard Butler. Both actors claim it was all business, but from the looks of it, their meeting was more of a pleasure. Rumors that they’ve been secretly rendezvousing have been swirling since September. Which one should she pick? Let’s put America’s Sweetheart’s men to the test. It’s Butler versus Mayer, after the jump! Keep reading »
Actor Gerard Butler, the actor best known for his role in “300″, has made headlines the past few months for all the business he’s being doing in his boudoir.

So who is this suave Scotsman who’s making more moves in LA than a U-Haul?

Here are some of the things I learned from watching the second season finale of AMC’s Emmy Award winning show “Mad Men”:
In the psudeo-historical world of “Mad Men”, work days start at 10 in the morning, because professionals needed the extra time to style their perfect hair.
Men who sleep around are studs and women who sleep around are sluts.
Also: men are big babies with trembling eyes, and women have icicles for spines.
But the most important thing I learned from the last episode of “Mad Men” is that Don Draper, the chain-smoking, hard-drinking, skirt-chasing lead character, is a kind of pop Rorschach test for modern day cats and dames. Both men and women see something different in Don, played with chilled beefiness by Jon Hamm, and what we see is proof that there is still a primal disconnect between what women want in a man and what men want to be.

So today, from Ryan Adams to Bloc Party, all this great new music came out! But if we had one fantasy album we’d like to see fulfilled, it’d be this hot piece by Jamie Boling. Last week, at the World of Wonder Gallery in LA, (known for eccentric shows like the ”Golden Gals Gone Wild Show” which featured an S&M Betty White), proudly displayed a hybrid that will give you an even bigger charge than the environmentally sound car: Barack Obama + Prince= one sexy motherf**ker!
