    Comment That Should Get Trademarked
    “Jocelyn Nubel” from “5 Signs You’re Dating Someone Emotionally Stupid”
    Pay attention Library of Congress, because here comes some creative genius:

    San Francisco Voters To Decide Whether To Decriminalize Prostitution

    It’s easy to forget with a Presidential election as exciting as this one that there are actually many, many, many people and bills on the ballot November 4th besides Barack Obama and John McCain. One of the issues that got our attention early is Proposition K, a San Francisco proposal that would decriminalize prostitution in the city. If passed, the law would forbid local authorities from investigating, arresting or prosecuting anyone for selling sex. The ballot measure still technically would not legalize prostitution since state law still prohibits it, but Proposition K would eliminate the power of local law enforcement officials to go after prostitutes. The local Democratic Party has endorsed the measure, but the majority of actual local government officials are opposed. A similar measure in Berkeley lost in 2006 — while San Francisco is typically a liberal-leaning city, it’s pretty up in the air as to whether this Proposition will pass with voters. If it does, SF will become the first major U.S. city to decriminalize sex work. With that in mind, vote in our poll! [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

    10 Songs That Objectify Women (That We Really Love)

    We’d like to think we’re bra burning feminists that would be repulsed by songs that refer to a woman’s body parts or her sensual essence, but we’re not. In fact, we’re not even ashamed to admit that sometimes clever lyrics or a banging beat or melody trump our feminist ideals, especially in the club. So we put together a list of songs that objectify women, but are totally on playlists in our iPods. Don’t get mad that we’re not disgusted by these songs, just sit back and let the music move you.

With these winnings, Liukin is tied with Shannon Miller and Mary Lou Retton for the record as the American gymnast with the most medals won at a single Olympics.

    Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

    Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »
