Today’s Lady News: Reader Submission Edition!

Hey all! Jessica is out today because she hurt her eyeball. Long story, one I suspect she may explain when she’s no longer wearing an eye patch. Hence, Today’s Lady News will be a reader submission edition! The rules are the same as the last few times we’ve done it: Submit your own links to news articles and blog posts about women, girls, trans-identified people, gender roles, feminism or sexism in the comments. Just write a sentence or two summary explaining what the link is about and give everyone a heads up if it has language or imagery that’s NSFW.

Jess will be back with her regularly scheduled Today’s Lady News sometime this week. Thanks everyone! Keep reading »

“Planking” Is Over—It’s All About “Cone-ing” Now

Just in time for summer, a hot weather-friendly viral fad called “cone-ing” is sweeping the interwebs. Phew, this means we can all stop “planking”.

Barack Obama On Being A Dad

“I grew up without a father around. I have certain memories of him taking me to my first jazz concert and giving me my first basketball as a Christmas present. But he left when I was two years old. And even though my sister and I were lucky enough to be raised by a wonderful mother and caring grandparents, I always felt his absence and wondered what it would have been like if he had been a greater presence in my life. I still do. It is perhaps for this reason that fatherhood is so important to me, and why I’ve tried so hard to be there for my own children.”

Barack Obama shares his thoughts on being a dad in an essay in the latest issue of People, just in time for Father’s Day. Man, this is one adorable family. Keep reading »

A Really Creepy Way To Eat Your Hot Dog

I already dislike hot dogs, but the Happy Hot Dog Man brings my distaste to a whole new level. These kind of antics are fine for Play-Doh, but not for wieners. I do not want my hot dog to have arms, legs, eyes, the ability to dance, or wear outfits. I have serious concerns about the child (or adult) who complains that the standard hot dog is “not fun enough to eat.” [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Meet The Mannequin Man

Ned Nefner, 38, is happily married to his 6-foot-tall mannequin wife, Teagan. The two met back in the ’80s when Ned spent some time in a Children’s Home. Teagan was just a head when they began their relationship. Over time, he built her a body and eventually the two were married in 1986.

We want to take a picture outside of the old Children’s Home on State Street,” he said of their trip. While we don’t want to s**t on Ned’s happy marriage, the clinical term for his condition is known as agalmatophilia, a sexual attraction to mannequins.
