    Stephen Colbert Spanks Philip Weiss

    There are so many reasons to love Stephen Colbert, and today’s reason is that he totally made Philip Weiss his bitch. Weiss is the writer behind that hateful New York story, “The Affairs Of Married Men”, which enraged me while I was on vacation. Colbert calls Weiss out, asking, “Isn’t there any chance that this is a sophisticated rationalization for being a complete a**hole?” Um yes. [Via Radar] Keep reading »

    Hot Girl Nerds Are Not New

    This week, Newsweek takes a look at a group of young women known as the Nerd Girls. This Tufts University group, representative of smart, hot women everywhere, is made up of about a dozen female students. They like dressing up and being girly — one is a former cheerleader — but they also like math and building stuff, including a solar car they hope to race next year. The girls are really cute, and it’s wonderful that younger women understand that they can be feminine and smart at the same time, however, being a nerd is easy when you’re attractive, wear the right clothes, and carry around an iPhone.

    ProChoice.com Is Not What You Think It Is

    You know, no matter where you stand on the abortion debate, toying with women’s lives through false advertising is pretty effed up. We’ve read a lot about “pregnancy crisis centers”, which seem like abortion clinics, but really only offer “counseling” that scares and guilt trips pregnant women into not getting abortions. Likewise, it’s really frickin’ irritating to hear that ProChoice.com is actually an anti-choice website serving up all sorts of anti-abortion information. And it’s poorly designed, to boot!

    Let’s Make A Muxtape, Shall We?

    So, this week I decided to make an entire mixtape of songs with the word “cry” in the title, because I am a giant cry baby. I cried on Friday night! And on Sunday! Oh, and last night when I saw this Cheerios commercial that I love. Anyway, some of the greatest songs in the universe are sad songs and a handful of the songs I chose will tug at your heartstrings. Some of them are peppy too, like “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, which is, duh, clearly not true. Enjoy the playlist for the next week! [The Frisky's Muxtape] Keep reading »

    Do Affairs Help Relationships?

    In the recently published When Good People Have Affairs, author Mira Kirshenbaum writes that cheating on your spouse can be therapeutic and help people change. “You could think of it as a radical but necessary medical procedure,” she told British newspaper The Observer. “If your marriage is in cardiac arrest, an affair can be a defibrillator.” Interestingly enough, she believes that adulterers should never confess, even if their partner asks directly whether they’ve had an affair. In her mind, honestly is not the best policy, because the truth can be more painful than the lie. Does Mira know that sometimes the truth hurts? [The Telegraph, U.K.] Keep reading »

    Brokeback Mountain: The Musical

    Although it didn’t seem possible for Brokeback Mountain to get gay-er, the handsome homosexual cowboys are hitting Broadway! The New York Opera Company has commissioned a work based on Annie Proulx’s short story, the same one that was adapted for the Oscar-winning flick. While back in 2005, Nathan Lane parodied the musical concept on Letterman (check out the vid), we are willing to bet $20 bucks on Clay Aiken’s dreams of being cast in this production. With live singing cowboys ropin’ and gropin’ each other, the new opera is sure to be a crowd pleasing hit for cowpokes and their fag hags alike — The Frisky’s Catherine and Amelia are already chompin’ at the bit to see some chaps in action. But they’ll have to wait patiently until the 2013 season…..[Playbill] Keep reading »

    Soon, You’ll Be Able To Create Your Own Energy

    You know how your feet get tired when you walk a lot? Well, all that pounding might soon be used to generate electricity. Engineers calculated the amount of energy that the 34,000 travelers who pass through the Victoria Underground station in London generate every hour, and they say it’s enough to power 6,500 light bulbs if underground generators were installed. These yet-to-be-produced generators could be put into any place that has high foot traffic, as well as on roads and beneath railroad lines. While the technology is still in its infancy, similar mini-generators were tested by the American military recently. Do you think walking in flats or heels would generate more electricity?

    “Freemale” To Be You And Me


    Cougar, spinster, playgirl, bachelorette. So many slang terms all mean the same thing: a single gal who lives on her own and on her own terms, like Kylie Minogue (chart topping dance hits and spandex booty shorts not required). But a new word has been coined in the U.K. and Australia: “freemale”. A freemale is a woman who stays single and only uses her vajane as an in-door for sex, not as an out-door for babies. The colloquialism, which has just washed up on our shores, is a mix of freedom and female, two words which should go hand in hand already. But what the new lingo “freemale” is actually is doing is taking away an inherent quality of being a woman and being an individual, choice. “Freemale” is making it seem as though women with families didn’t choose that life for themselves. Or, worse yet, we aren’t doing our own thing if we’re just “female.” How does being in a relationship with a man only qualify you as a woman? That’s just major misogynistic BS. Especially as the number of women, 25 to 44, who fit the definition of “freemale” has doubled to nearly 700,000 over the past 20 years. So, while the intention to popularize the Destiny’s Child style Independent Woman movement is good, the terminology could still use a little work. Keep reading »
