Man Chokes Woman He Met Online Because She Didn’t Match Her Profile

Man Chokes Woman He Met Online Because She Didn't Match Her Profile

Another post about a guy responding in an abusive manner towards a woman who didn’t adhere to his expectations? you may be thinking. I promise, we will stop posting about the topic just as soon as stories about the violent manifestations of pervasive male entitlement stop filling the news cycle. You can hold me to that. So, the latest rage-inducer? A man is accused of choking a woman he met online because she wasn’t “like she was on the Internet.” Keep reading »

Debate This: Men, Why Is The Pressure To Pursue Women So Painful And Difficult For You?

Debate This: Men, Why Is The Pressure To Pursue Women So Painful And Difficult For You?

Bye Felipe is an Instagram collection of Tinder creeps curated by Alexandra Tweten, an Los Angeles-based journalist inspired by her own bad experiences on Tinder. The difference between Bye Felipe (the name is inspired by the “Bye, Felicia” meme) and other blogs dedicated to exposing assholes on dating sites is the particular kind of asshole they expose: The guys who escalate and get angry reallllly fast if women reject them, don’t answer them, or simply exist, in some cases.

The Atlantic is calling this a “feminist” initiative. It pains me to think that asking men to be basically decent and polite is part of a non-mainstream political effort to erase the gender gap, because it seems like it should just be something that everyone does for the sake of doing it. But it’s women, not men, who are experiencing sexual harassment online — in dating apps less of the time and on social media more often. That gender difference means something about men’s attitudes toward sex and women, specifically that they feel entitled to sex and entitled to women. In that context, sexual rejection isn’t just a normal part of human interactions, it’s a denial of something they perceive to be rightfully theirs. Keep reading »

Happy Halloween, Here’s A Princess Jasmine Cat On A Magic Carpet Roomba!

Jasmine Cat On A Roomba
Now Where's Her Magic Lamp?

The title says it all, doesn’t it? Max-Arthur, our favorite Roomba-riding cat, is back to celebrate the season by parading around in “Aladdin” garb. I’m going to assume that the YouTube copyright police are the reason “A Whole New World” isn’t playing in the background (I mean, why else!?), so go ahead and mute the video and blast the tune on your own — I know it’s in your iTunes library!

Kelly Clarkson’s Gospel Cover Of “Shake It Off” Will Make You Swoon

Kelly Clarkson
Goddess Status

Kelly Clarkson bestowed upon us humble plebs the most glorious and stirring “Shake It Off” cover to ever make its way through our speakers (not that I know of all too many “Shake It Off” covers to begin with, but you get my drift.) As Kelly’s embarrassingly obsessive #1 superfan from roughly years 2002 – 2007, I’m glad to know she’s still kicking ass without my angsty youthful self cheering on her every move. The the song starts around the 1:00 mark, and in case you were wondering, Taylor loved it too and gives her pop-star blessing. [Jezebel]

Mommie Dearest: School Shootings, Toxic Masculinity & “Boys Will Be Boys”

Mommie Dearest: School Shootings, Toxic Masculinity & "Boys Will Be Boys"

Another school shooting. This time it took place at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington state. Fourteen-year-old high school freshman Jaylen Fryberg, pulled a gun out during lunch and began shooting, killing two 14-year-old girls, and severely wounding three other students before dying from a self-inflicted gun shot. Like with each school shooting before this one, we all sit back and wonder… why? How?

We can talk about guns as the root of all evil in these instances (Fryberg used a gun that was legally purchased) — and in fact, we should be shouting about the ease of access to guns in this country — but it’s not that simple. Because there’s more to it than just guns. Reports are slowly coming in that Fryberg may have targeted particular students at his school over a recent breakup. While we may never truly know his motivation, many are starting to piece together information gathered from fellow students and Fryberg’s own social media accounts. A student at Marysville-Pilchuk High School told the Seattle Times that Fryberg was “angry about a romantic relationship he was involved in, and that the girl was one of the people shot,” according to a student. Another student spoke about Fryberg and one of the victims, telling Reuters that she “heard he asked her out and she rebuffed him and was with his cousin.” The student boils it down: “It was a fight over a girl.” Keep reading »
