Today’s Lady News: Back In 1938, Disney Only Allowed Women To Trace

  • Back in 1938, women weren’t allowed to contribute in the creative process to bring Disney cartoons to the big screen. Check out the rejection letter one woman received when she applied for the company’s trained school, in which she was told she was only eligible to be a tracer. [BuzzFeed]
  • A food writer wonders why so many (er, all?) so-called “girly” drinks are sickly sweet. Good question! I’m a chick and Cosmos and Appletinis make me gag. [The Atlantic]
  • The editor of lady blog The Gloss thinks it’s cool that Lady Gaga made a video about repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” but isn’t stoked that the singer asked pervy photographer Terry Richardson to direct.

All The Single Ladies … Are Closing The Gender Wage Gap!

Go on girls — women under 30 have made great gains on their male counterparts in the workplace. Single working women under 30 now make eight percent more than their comparably aged male counterparts — and as much as 21 percent more in some cities.

According to an analysis of Census data by Reach Partners, women are making such leaps thanks to an influx of educated women in the workforce. Women are now graduating from college at a rate of 1.5 times more than men — and that means that women are seeing particularly large gains in cities with knowledge-based economies. Keep reading »

Meet Zlata, The Sexy Human Gumby


The whole time I was watching this video of beautiful, blond contortionist Zlata, I couldn’t stop yelling, “Zlata, no! No! Stop it, Zlata! Stop!” Yet I did not turn it off. The secret to Zlata’s extraordinary flexibility? Her ligaments are like that of a baby’s, which have not hardened, and thus her full range of motion is way beyond that of an adult. Watch as Zlata is able to sit her ass down — on her head. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Something Wrong? Blame Feminism

Feminism has had a busy couple of decades. We’re not talking about how the women’s lib movement and the related equal rights movement have transformed the lives of women. Oh no: We’re talking about the dusty path of destruction and ruin that feminism has generated in its single-minded mission to radicalize ladies.

The newest precious thing that feminism’s ruined? Home cooking. Rose Prince, writing for the Daily Mail‘s helpfully titled female news section, “Femail,” argues that feminism has veritably killed off the art of homemade food. She bemoans the fact that women aren’t slaving in front of the stove like they used to — and says it’s all feminism’s fault. Keep reading »

2 Dudes Break The World Record For Kissing

I’d like to extend a shout-out to Matt Daley and Bobby Canciello, two college dudes who set out to raise awareness for LGBTQ equal rights by breaking the Guinness World Record for the “longest continuous kiss.” After a 33-hour kissing sesh, they walked away with some tired lips and a world record. They both have boyfriends who are randomly not each other, but they called their long lip-lock “nothing more than a kiss between two men” and an “attempt to change social norms.” Extremely impressive, boys. Now go put on some chapstick. [She Wired] Keep reading »
