Poll: What Are You Scrimping On During The Econonic Crisis?

Yeah, so I know “Dancing With The Stars” premiered this week and we’re all in a tizzy because Drew Barrymore snogged Chuck Bass, but did you know that there’s a serious economic crisis LOOMING? Between the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the sale of Merrill Lynch, AIG tanking, and the government planning a bailout to the tune of $200 billion, these are scary financial times. Certainly some are already feeling the pain more than others, as jobless rates soar to record highs, but it’s a given that we’re all going to feel the pinch eventually. So what are you cutting back on in order to save money and prepare for impending DOOM? Keep reading »

    TV Is Coming Out Like Clay Aiken

    Network TV has got almost as many gay characters as Marc Jacobs’ Rolodex. Just last year, there were only seven homosexuals and bisexuals on the boob tube, but this year that number has more than doubled to 16. GLAAD is certainly happy to announce the awesome news and even single out an old foe. The sharp increase is thanks, in part, to Fox, who not only finally put one gay character on a series, they put a whopping FIVE! Still, all this good news comes with a new glass ceiling. While gay men seem to be making head way (no pun intended), there are no lesbian characters on the major networks — just bisexual women. One small step for man, but when is there going to be a jump for womankind? Sigh…will someone please cast Portia Di Rossi to play gay already?! [USA Today via Fark] Keep reading »

    Essence Magazine: Voluptuous And Lovin’ It Issue

    I was very skeptical when I heard about Essence’s special “Voluptuous Issue” this morning. I thought maybe it would be a gimmick like Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue”. And I didn’t see a need for a special issue celebrating full-figured women because Essence seems to do just that on a consistent basis. One of the reasons I’m not a big fan of this lady mag is because each month they have a section on how to wear a certain outfit in any size. The problem is the first size is an eight. I’m no where near that size, so I felt excluded each time I picked up the magazine. I also, for the life of me, couldn’t figure out why a magazine would celebrate a lifestyle that could lead to health problems. According to the Obesity Society, black women and men have the highest prevalence of obesity than any other race or ethnicity. But after reading the magazine, I had a greater understanding of the thinking behind this issue. Keep reading »

    Sexism Still Pays Off For Men

    Growing up, my mom and dad shared the responsibility of bringing home the bacon…well, the proverbial bacon — we’re Jewish. Anyway, my mom was a realtor and good at her job, but I’ll never forget her main competitor. His wife didn’t work and he was a jerk, the kind of guy who used too much hair grease and put his cheesy head shot up at bus stops. While my mother kept me in enriching after school programs, this other slick Realtor dude would scam his clients for sympathy by dragging his son around to meetings. One particular prospective female client even told my mother she was going to go with this guy because he was really his family’s breadwinner. Puke — that’s some serious girl-on-girl crime! I was always proud of my mama for Mary Tyler Moore-ing it up in the face of sexist foolishness, but apparently this chauvinist realtor isn’t the only man who has cashed in on close-mindedness.

    The Daily Squeeze: Breast Milk At Ben & Jerry’s, Grandma Smells, And Bad Dreams

  • This sounds too crazy to possibly be true. PETA sent a letter to Ben & Jerry’s, urging them to substitute human breast milk for 75 percent of the cow’s milk in their products. A spokesperson for Ben & Jerry’s responded: “We applaud PETA’s novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother’s milk is best used for her child.” Why is everyone so obsessed with breast milk these days?
