Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett’s Staffers Allegedly Circulated Pornographic Emails

Tom Corbett

Last week, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office released a slew of sexually explicit emails, pictures and videos that had been discovered in email exchanges between eight staffers of Republican Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. The imagery was allegedly circulated when Corbett still served as the state’s attorney general, a position he left in January 2011 when he was elected governor. Corbett, who is currently running for re-election, claims he had no knowledge of the emails at the time and that while he was told about “inappropriate” emails in May, he hasn’t seen the imagery in question. Attorney general Kathleen Kane, whose team made the discovery, initially refused to share the explicit emails with the public but eventually allowed a select few journalists to view the footage in the company of armed agents.

Samy Bouzaglo Of “Kitchen Nightmares”/Amy’s Baking Company Brought A Butter Knife To A Nothing-Fight

Ohhhh myyyy godddd guuuyyyysss: Samy Bouzaglo of Amy’s Baking Company/”Kitchen Nightmares” fame tried to stab someone with a butter knife, so he and Amy are on TV again.

My boyfriend and I don’t have cable, so I don’t watch TV, but I would for the occasions on which the Bouzaglos are being … the Bouzaglos. I love them so much. (You might notice a trend: Tacky people are my fave.) The great thing about them is that they’re just completely bonkers — it’s not that they’re doing it for the cameras, it’s not that they’re trying to get on TV, it’s that they’re legit out of control. I mean, yeah, they tried to get on TV by going on “Kitchen Nightmares,” but their intention was to be vindicated and instead they became notorious for being deranged narcissists, so it kind of blew up in their faces.

Teenage Boy Writes Touching Letter About Emma Watson’s Gender Equality Speech

Emma Watson

Emma Watson’s speech on gender equality at the UN may have sparked a seriously bizarre marketing stunt/prank on 4Chan/stupid hoax, but it also educated countless young people and did a massive amount of good. One of those young people, 15-year-old Ed Holtom, loved her speech so much that he wrote into UK’s Telegraph to express his support. In his letter, he worries that some of the other boys at his school have a more hostile view towards feminism, and he makes a call to action for other young people to reject gender stereotypes. Holtom told BuzzFeed, “I was inspired by Emma Watson’s speech, but also by Beyoncé’s philosophy of female empowerment. I didn’t expect anyone to take an interest in it, but I’m so glad people agree with me!” Is this kid awesome or what? The letter that appears in the Telegraph was shortened a bit, but he provided BuzzFeed with the full version, which you can read after the jump!

Why California’s Active Consent Law Is Not An Outrage

California Governor Jerry Brown signed the state’s Active Consent bill yesterday, making it law in California that in order to receive state funding, universities must have policies stating that students must obtain verbal or nonverbal consent before having sex (a lack of objection or resistance does not constitute consent), provide victims’ advocates, teach incoming freshmen about consent during orientation, and not punish victims for underage drinking when they come forward.

I don’t know why there’s a chunk of people who are invested in claiming this is an outrage — OK, I have some ideas, and they mainly have to do with fairly predictable pushback to social change. The bill has had its critics, as has the idea of affirmative or active consent in general. Here’s why this bill (now law!) is by no means an outrage: Keep reading »
