Sometimes the universe makes me want to crawl into a hole in the ground and cry. It happened yesterday when Glenn Beck spent three minutes of his show making barfing noises while talking about Meghan McCain naked. (She’s “fat,” you know!) And it happens again now with one of the most depraved blog posts I’ve ever seen online.
On Thursday morning, the Houston Press web site, which is owned by the Village Voice Media company, published a list of the “10 hottest female sex offenders.” I am purposefully not linking to the post so as not to give them traffic. It was quite basic: photographs of conventionally attractive women ran alongside their city, their crime and the age of their victim. Keep reading »
Don’t go to Florida if you plan to get laid, because doin’ it is officially illegal there. In an attempt to outlaw bestiality, Florida lawmakers accidentally banned all sex acts. The new law bans “knowing sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal.” As we know from the great Nine Inch Nails song, “Closer,” wanting to f#@k like an animal doesn’t mean you’re into animal husbandry. And if you ever took a science class, you also know that humans are technically animals. We know what they meant, but the wording is unfortunate. Oh silly Florida, what are we going to do with you?

Glenn Beck‘s gone on a juvenile, woman-shaming, fat-hating rant against Meghan McCain and it’s one of the most hurtful, sexist things I’ve ever heard in my life. Meghan appeared with a bunch of female celebs in a PSA about skin cancer, talking about being “naked” by not wearing sunscreen. Both of Meghan’s parents, John and Cindy McCain, have fought skin cancer. Meghan, Brandy, Danielle Fishel, and the other celebs all appear discreetly naked in the PSA, but are actually wearing flesh-colored body suits. It’s a pretty effective PSA and the kind of thing I’d rather see Meghan McCain use whatever influence she might have for rather than, say, taking dopey cheap shots at the president.
Glenn Beck is fat-hating sexist pig, however, and jumped all over Meghan to hate on her body. Glenn’s radio show devoted three-and-a-half minutes yesterday to an eye-rollingly puerile segment in which a bunch of guys fake-barf on air while they talk about Meghan naked. Keep reading »
I can’t turn a corner without seeing the T-mobile ad with the pretty lady in a variety of gorgeous pink dresses. But this Sprint ad warning against an AT&T and T-mobile merger is kinda dodgy. I don’t necessarily disagree with the anti-monopoly politics of it (although I’ll leave that to the econ majors to explain to me). No, it’s the old man with a cigar in a pink polka dot dress and the co-option of AT&T’s tag line, “It makes sense if you don’t think about it,” that bugs me. Uh, men wearing women’s clothing makes sense if you don’t think about it? I’m all for spoofs, but this is kinda transphobic, don’t you think, Sprint? [Queerty] Keep reading »
