Do We Really Need To Know Who’s Googling Us?

It used to be you had to wait until you had ringing ears to know someone was thinking about you, but these days you can get an email alert any time someone Googles your name. Ziggs.com, a new social networking site, invites people to create profiles and promises to give them a top position in all search engines for $4.95 a month. Members get instant email notifications every time a visitor views their profiles via search engines like Google, even alerting them of the visitor’s location. This sort of thing just smacks of all kinds of wack, from encouraging rampant narcissism, to creating the modern day “waiting for his call” syndrome, as well as making people wonder about their exes way more than necessary.

Gardasil Required For Young Female Immigrants

If you’re a female U.S. citizen between 11 and 26 years old, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that you get the Gardasil vaccine; however, if you are a female foreigner trying to become a permanent resident of the country, it’s not just recommended you get the vaccine, it’s required. This isn’t because the U.S. government thinks that foreigners are going to infect our entire population with cervical cancer. A 1996 immigration law states that any vaccine recommended by the government for its citizens becomes mandatory for green-card applicants. Even the chairman of the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices didn’t realize this was the case when it recommended the vaccine to citizens. Keep reading »

Obama Camp Reportedly Seeks Rape Victim For Campaign Ad

According to an email obtained by Politico.com, the Obama campaign attempted to find a rape victim to cast in a campaign commercial that would allow the Democratic Presidential nominee to discuss his stance on related issues. According to Politico’s Jonathan Martin:

The Obama campaign wouldn’t detail the strategy behind finding an individual to discuss such a sensitive topic but did suggest the ad may be aimed at underscoring their candidate’s support for abortion rights and ongoing effort to retain those women who backed Hillary Clinton in the primary.

All this has led to discussion over whether seeking out a rape victim to tell her story in order to further a political agenda is appropriate. After the jump, some thoughts from Megan at Jezebel.com and Ann at Feministing.com, as well as my own gut reaction. Keep reading »

    Clips: Women Collect Dolls On “The Today Show”

    This morning on “The Today Show”, Matt Lauer interviewed three women (all between ages 40-60) who still play with dolls. Very, very lifelike dolls. And by play with, we mean they dress them up, lay them in cribs, strap them into car seats, and generally act like they are real babies. Awkwardly weird clip above. Keep reading »

    Croutons from “Fans React To Clay Aiken Coming Out”
    Last week, Clay Aiken came out and 75 of you had something (mostly supportive) to say about it. Hot damn! So now that Clay’s telling the truth, which one of his fans was willing to be honest too? Croutons, of course, told it like it is:
    “OK, but now that he’s out, that means he has to start making music that doesn’t suck.”
    Good point, Croutons! We all got caught up in his sexuality, but what really matters is the music. After all, he’s representing the gay community! Keep reading »

    The Best Mean Girls In TV And Film

    We have a love/hate relationship with Mean Girls. In reality, we know from firsthand experience that Mean Girls can ruin a teen’s life. But when it comes to TV and film, we find Mean Girls totally entertaining and have been known to root for them. Usually, the Mean Girl in a show or movie is the most developed character. Being saccharin sweet like Serena van der Woodsen in the first season of “Gossip Girl” or Lauren Conrad throughout the run of “The Hills” is easy. But it takes work to be conniving, cunning, and misunderstood all at once. We decided to pay homage to entertainment’s best Mean Girls after the jump. Tell us in the comments which one you identify with the most! Keep reading »

    12 Things Mean Girls Do To Take Down the Competition

    It’s no secret that women can be incredibly competitive and catty with each other. In yesterday’s post about Mean Girls we argued that no one can bring a woman down faster and harder than another woman. Right now, a lot of us are reconnecting with our own inner Mean Girls when it comes to Sarah Palin. We mock her out, attack her, and put her down in ways only we women really can. But of course, it’s not just Sarah Palin we’ve got beef with, is it? When it comes to other women competing for the same men, the same jobs, even the same last pair of chocolate brown leather riding boots in size 7 on sale for 50% off, we are out for blood. After the jump, 12 things Mean Girls do to take down the competition… Keep reading »
