  • Sharron Angle, a U.S. Senate candidate for Nevada, has said that having one parent staying at home with children is the “right” and “acceptable” thing to do.

  • A former middle school student who claimed teasing at school lead her to develop anorexia has settled her federal lawsuit against the Pittsburgh Public Schools. The girl, identified as “B.G.,” said she was harassed every day beginning in 6th grade by three boys who told her she was fat and ugly. Once, when she began to cry in class from the abuse, “B.G.” said, she was sent to the guidance counselor’s office where she was told the boys must be flirting. In 7th grade, two more boys joined in on the teasing and she developed anorexia. That same year, “B.G.” eventually told her mother about what was going on.

Art School Students Contemplate Nude Male Model

Copyranter didn’t think much of this Foot Locker commercial, but we kind of like it. We guess we’re perverted that way. A group of art students gather around a nude male model, agog, seemingly considering his wang. “Leathery!” one pronounces. “Crooked,” another offers. Way to scrutinize a guy’s masculinity. Watch the video to find out what they’re really talking about. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Men Can Stop Rape

How refreshing — an anti-rape ad campaign that puts the focus on the rapist not the victim. We also love the fact that this campaign isn’t just targeted at straight couples. [Bitter Buffalo via Diana Vilibert's Twitter] Keep reading »
