From The Department Of You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

So there’s a new site for ladies! Ladies who like business! And it’s got a stupid, stupid, stupid name. The site Mogulite has rebranded itself as TheJaneDough.com. But that’s not all! Its tagline is: “All the business news we knead.” Get it? Because you need news like you knead bread. Because you’re a woman! And that’s what women do! In the kitchen!

Mogulite’s current mission is to cover power players, but apparently its owner(s) — Dan Abrams and Mediaite — are looking to compete in the working women space. So what’s the point of The Jane Dough? Launching under its new moniker, stories will include: “Our take on obnoxious women’s stereotypes, radical CEOs who are promoting female executives, and the absurd coverage that workplace sexism gets in the press — these were the stories we got really excited about — and, judging by the traffic, our readers got fired up over them, as well,” says editor Amy Tennery. So far so good. So then why give the site such a stupid, demeaning name and tagline?

Dubious Study Finds That Women React Aggressively Toward “Sexy” Peers

Ugh. The very last thing we (i.e. women) need is a “study” claiming to observe women’s snarky reactions to another woman dressed sexily. The lead author of the study begins with a quote that is concerning in and of itself: “I was convinced, having lived a life as a woman, that we’re not as pleasant as some people make us out to be.” Huh? I’ve never heard of anyone making women, as an entire gender, out to be pleasant. Tracy Vaillancourt, who is also the professor of psychology at University of Ottawa, invited 86 women to participate in a conflict resolution study, but she had a different agenda when she documented how the women reacted to a young female student entering the room in a certain outfit. Vaillancourt did not document the ages of the 86 women who partook in the study or, well, anything about them, only their responses to the student, who wore either a T-shirt and khakis or a low-cut top and mini skirt. Vaillancourt stated that “ninety-seven percent” of the women responded inappropriately to the student. To use the same scientific term that Vaillancourt herself uses, the reactions were bitchy.

Oops! Men Only Think About Sex 19 Times A Day, Not 8,000

Just kidding! There was a slight miscalculation. Men don’t actually think about sex every seven seconds. I always thought that 8,000 sexual thoughts a day seemed like an oppressive estimate.  New research says that men are not the wild, hyper-sexualized beasts science made them out to be. Men’s sexual notions happen more like once every hour. Much more manageable. The study, done at Ohio State University, found that in addition to their sexual thoughts, guys actually think about (gasp!) other things during the course of a day like eating and napping. The men in the study thought about sex an average of 19 times a day with food a close second at 18 times a day, while women thought about sex an average of 10 times a day and food 15 times.

Of all the good reasons to wrap it up, not bringing a bundle of joy into the world who you are ill-prepared to care for is a big one. A Brazilian ad agency took this idea to the extreme by Facebook friending young men with a profile of their fake “baby” with their name followed by “Jr” — like Kevin Federline would have gotten a friend request from Kevin Federline Jr. (And then high-fived his bros.) All the Facebook messages linked back to the web site for Olla Condoms, who sponsored the campaign. Very clever, but very terrifying. [CreativityOlla.com.br]
