Follow That Blogger: Amanda Hess Premieres New Blog On TBD.com

You may recognize the name Amanda Hess because she used to write The Sexist column for Washington City Paper. Not long ago, though, a new Washington, D.C.-based site, TBD, stole her away, and today Hess launched her new blog: “Amanda Hess: Sex and gender at work, in bed, and on the street.” Hess has a unique way of combining the sexual and the political, the feminist and the politically incorrect, the racy and the insightful. We recommend this lady blogger as one to keep on reading. [Amanda Hess] Keep reading »

Woman Takes Driver’s Test 960 Times. Really.

We could all learn a little something about perseverance from Cha Sa-soon. Sa-soon is the 69-year-old South Korean woman who failed her driver’s test 959 times before finally passing it. For three years, starting in 2005, she made obtaining a license her job — she took the test five times a week. She eventually scaled back to taking it every other week, and finally passed the test in May of this year. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: The Girl Scouts Are A Haven For Lesbians & Pro-Abortion Training Ground

  • The Girl Scouts are a haven for lesbians and a pro-abortion training corps! A Republican candidate for Washington’s House of Representatives, Hans Zeiger, has allegedly been removing his writings from the internet, but the opposition has still been able to find cached pages on Google. Boy, are they interesting! “One might wonder why the Girl Scouts have been spared the painful attacks that have been launched upon the Boy Scouts by the Left in recent years,” he wrote in one gem. “The reasons are simple: the Girl Scouts allow homosexuals and atheists to join their ranks, and they have become a pro-abortion, feminist training corps. If the Girl Scouts of America can’t get back to teaching real character, perhaps it will be time to look for our cookies elsewhere.” Yes, this is the Girl Scouts he’s talking about.

Open Thread: Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Happy Labor Day weekend! This is the post to come check in and connect with your fellow Frisky peeps. What are y’all up to this weekend? What are some of your favorite recipes/dishes to bring to a BBQ? What was the highlight of your summer? What are you looking forward to this fall? I’ll start: I’m staying in New York this weekend, hanging with friends, hitting Coney Island, doing some flea marketing, and hopefully welcoming a new addition into the world (a good friend went into labor today!). The highlight of my summer was moving to Brooklyn, and this fall I’m looking forward to cooler outdoor workouts, a fiction class I’m thinking of taking, and perhaps a trip to New Orleans. Oh, and one of my favorite recipes to bring to BBQs is this easy — but delish — key lime pie. Your turn! Keep reading »

A Senate Candidate Who Is Anti-Masturbation

Christine O’Donnell has all the makings of an East Coast Sarah Palin. She’s a candidate running for the Senate in Delaware. More specifically, she’s a Tea Party member who is challenging Republican Mike Castle in the upcoming primary. For a while, she looked like a longshot, but all of a sudden, she’s picked up a bit of steam. Which has folks very worried because let’s just say that O’Donnell has some pretty extreme views. Years ago, O’Donnell made an appearance on the MTV series “Sex in the ’90s.” The point she wanted to make: masturbation is evil. Keep reading »
