All Plainfield, Indiana’s Trisha Elhossainy wanted to do was drive customers to her store, Trisha’s Treasures. Since, as everyone knows, sex sells, Trisha decided to hang some decidedly sexy blankets in her store windows. One blanket features a trio of blonds seen from behind: they’re wearing pink bikinis and the bottoms are thongs. But folks at the city’s municipal building across the street didn’t like the cheeks on parade, and city leaders told Trisha to take them down. She did. Now, she’s had a change of heart about censoring “the ‘mudflap girl’ blanket” and others, and she’s working with her attorney and the ACLU. She’s filed an injunction to stop the officials from interfering with her First Amendment rights. What do you think? [Fox59.com] Keep reading »
If there’s one person you don’t want to mess with, it’s an irate college journalism student. All Long Island University journalism student Chelsea Isaacs wanted was a comment from Apple’s media relations department for a paper she was writing. Isaacs, a college senior, was assigned a story on the use of iPads in academic settings — especially prescient since her college was considering offering free iPads to incoming freshmen.

What followed was a testy exchange, and somebody acting like a sullen teen. Keep reading »
Ariana Iacono, a 14-year-old girl from North Carolina, is a member of the Church of Body Modification (as is her mother). While the Church of Body Modification doesn’t worship a God, its members adhere to a type of religion which involves tattooing or body piercings as a method of experiencing spirituality. While only 2 years old, the Church does have several thousand members and a code of beliefs. So when Ariana’s school suspended her for wearing a nose ring (which isn’t permitted in the school’s dress code, although it does allow adjustments for religious dress), she and her mother claimed it was an infringement of her First Amendment rights.

In a “creative” new advertising campaign — really, they used the word “creative” — Kentucky Fried Chicken is giving college girls $500 bucks to walk around campus wearing sweat pants that promote their Double Down sandwich across the ass. It’s a bun-less sandwich and the co-ed girls have the words “double down” across their … oh, nevermind, you get it. Shh, let’s not tell them that Victoria’s Secret and just about every college in the country has beat them to this idea!

When did conservative female political candidates who make bombastic statements become so chic? First there was Sarah Palin, then Michele Bachmann, and now Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell is the toast of Delaware’s Senate race. For the love of vaginas, Victoria Woodhull, Shirley Chisholm and Geraldine Ferraro did not smash through the glass ceiling so that their successors could clog up the 24/7 news cycle with their anti-sex, anti-woman views.
Frankly, Christine O’Donnell’s declaration on the MTV series “Sex In the ’90s” that masturbation is a sin is all the crazy I need to know to make my assessment about her. But in case you and your lustful heart want to give O’Donnell a chance, here are five things to know about her. And you know you want to know how Mel Gibson is involved. Keep reading »
