This is a joke, right? A lovely UCLA student — identified by The Daily What as poli-sci undergrad Alexandra Wallace — took to the Intertubes to bitch about Asians. (You know, because they’re a monolithic group.) According to Alexandra, UCLA accepts “hordes of Asians” every year — which is fine — who don’t have “American manners” when it comes to talking on the phone in the library. Entitlement! Obliviousness! Hedging her racist comments with “you guys know I’m not really politically correct”! This woman’s career in politics is golden.

After the jump, one of those gabby Asians responds to Alexandra with his own video about white girls in the library: Keep reading »

Cops: Man Stocked Walmart Shelves With Photos Of Himself In Drag

You can find almost anything on the shelves at Walmart — sometimes even obscene photographs of a 44-year-old man in drag.

Police in Fremont, Ohio, say Rodney Kunkel stocked the shelves at Walmart with graphic photographs showing himself in black nylons, heels and pink lingerie with his genitals exposed.

Kunkel allegedly placed the photos on shelves in the cosmetic department and on cars in the store’s parking lot on Feb. 28, The News-Messenger reports. Read more… Keep reading »

Tim Burton Got Rejected Too

This is what Tim Burton was working on long before he was the Tim Burton. In 1976, he submitted this children’s book, The Giant Zlig, to an editor at Walt Disney Productions for publishing.

Dear Sirs,

I am submitting this book in hopes that you might consider publishing it. The book has been layed [sic] out in rough form, and I would be glad to make any changes that you feel would be nessecary [sic]. I would hope to hear from you either way. Thankyou.

Sincerely
Tim Burton

Sadly, The Giant Zlig was rejected. You can see his rejection letter here. I bet that editor feels like an ass. Aren’t we glad he kept at it? Take note. Perseverance, people. [Letters of Note] Keep reading »

  • The alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in Cleveland, Texas, in November by 18 men and boys has turned the town upon its head, according to the Houston Chronicle. The victim was allegedly Latina, while the guys who raped her (ranging from middle schoolers to a 27-year-old) were allegedly Black. Allegedly, a group of skinheads was seen in the town yesterday yelling racial slurs about Blacks. What a terrible situation. Our hearts go out to the victim, her family, and the families of all those affected. [Houston Chronicle]
  • Also, the ombudsman/public editor of The New York Times has published a response to an article about the Cleveland gang rape in his paper which slut-shamed and victim-blamed the 11-year-old girl. [New York Times]
  • A Maryland House of Representatives committee has approved the Civil Marriage Protection Act, a bill to bring marriage rights to same-sex couples. [Feminist.org]

Politician Asks If Women Can Have Abortions, Why Can’t He Have A Super-Toilet?

Women Misled About Abortion

“I’m all for energy conservation … [But] I think there should be some self-examination from the administration on the idea that you favor a woman’s right to an abortion, but you don’t favor a woman or a man’s right to choose what kind of lightbulb, what kind of dishwasher, what kind of washing machine.”

— Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is upset that hippie BS like “environmental conservation” prevents him from owning a powerfully-flushing super-toilet, which is just downright unfair because women are allowed to terminate unwanted pregnancies. How can you argue with logic like that? Abortion: it’s like choosing a brand of lightbulb! [Talking Points Memo] Keep reading »

I Have Sex

 

I’m loving this “I Have Sex” video by a bunch of Wesleyan students. Last month the House of Representatives, led by a lovely bunch of social conservatives hellbent on ruining access to safe, legal abortions any way possible, voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood. This is crazytalk to anyone who’s ever gone to Planned Parenthood for the Pill or a Pap smear or to get a strange lump in your breast checked out. Sexual health is not something anyone should have to gamble with. Attention, conservatives: people have sex! [YouTube] Keep reading »
