Today in Things That Make Me Want To Scream “CORRELATION DOES NOT EQUAL CAUSATION!” And Beat My Head Against The Wall:

Last year, a study out of Michigan State University found that the erotic BDSM trilogy Fifty Shades Of Grey “perpetuates” abusive relationships. Now, another study from the same professor at MSU claims young women who read the books are more likely to have an abusive partner and show signs of an eating disorder.

Women who read all three books in the trilogy (like me and Amelia), the study found, are more likely to binge drink and have multiple sex partners. Amy Bonomi, a professor of Human Development and Family Studies and lead author of the study, said that based on her study of over 650 young women ages 18 to 24, it’s possible the Fifty Shades books might “reaffirm” negative experiences and “aggravate trauma.” In other words, this lady r-e-a-l-l-y does not like these books.

Well, well, well. Where to start with this one? Keep reading »

“Dating Naked”‘s Jessie Nizewitz Sues Because The Reality Show Aired Her Uncensored Vag

"Dating Naked"'s Jessie Nizewitz Sues Because The Reality Show Aired Her Uncensored Vag

When you agree to go on a show like VH1′s “Dating Naked,” you’re obviously agreeing to be, well, naked on camera. But New York model Jessie Nizewitz, who appeared in the July 31 episode of the show, is suing the cable network to the tune of $10 million for airing footage that she says shows her more naked than she agreed to. Nizewitz said that she was told her “privates” were going to be completely blurred, but as you’ll see in the NSFW version of the photo above, whoever was in charge of censoring naughty bits, well, missed a spot. Like, really missed a spot. In addition to the whole world (well, the percentage of the whole world that actually watches “Dating Naked”) seeing her chocha, Nizewitz says the guy she was dating (who she met clothed and not on the show) is ghosting her, while her grandmother is giving her the cold shoulder. “Obviously, I did not expect the world to see my private parts,” Nizewitz told Variety. Just the blurry ones. [The Superficial; Huffington Post]

Girl Talk: Unemployed And Unemployable

Girl Talk: Unemployed And Unemployable

My life three years ago is sometimes incomprehensible to me. Retrospectively, it’s so absurd that it’s hard to believe that the things that happened happened, or that I tolerated some of the things that happened, or that I actively participated in some of the things that happened.

Enough mystery. When Jessica’s article about the time her husband spent unemployed went live, I told her about my experiences on both sides of the unemployment-in-a-relationship fence. I spent three years with an unemployed (former) spouse, and then became unemployed myself last year, during the course of the relationship I’m in with my boyfriend now. Jessica recounted beautifully the anxiety of watching a partner she loves undergoing the stress of unemployment and job-searching. Keep reading »

Pageant Mom Feeds Her Daughter Tapeworms To Slim Her Down For Beauty Pageant

Well, That's Disgusting

Today in terrifying parenting: on an upcoming episode of “Untold Stories of the ER,” we hear the tale of a Florida pageant mom who fed her teenage daughter tapeworm eggs to help her lose weight for an upcoming competition. When the girl arrived at the hospital with a bloated stomach and severe pain, the nurses first thought she might be pregnant. An ultrasound didn’t show a baby, but it did show a bizarre growth in her intestines, and a trip to the bathroom revealed a toilet bowl full of wriggly tapeworms. Nurse Maricar Cabral-Osorio told UPI, “some of the worms were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl.” Gag! The girl’s mother turned white as a sheet. According to Cabral-Osorio, ”The mom was apologizing to the girl. It’s like ‘I’m so sorry. You know, I did it just to make you a little skinnier. You needed some help before we went on to the pageant.” The mom bought a pill of tapeworm eggs in Mexico and forced her to ingest it. The show’s over-the-top reenactment of the scene is actually pretty funny, but I can only hope that in real life the mother faced some kind of legal punishment for endangering her daughter. This is all kinds of screwed up and her parenting doesn’t sound safe for any kid. Excuse me while I vom. [Gawker, UPI] [Image via Shutterstock]

Somebody Take Me To A Kitten-Themed Wedding

Kittens
My Invitation Must Have Gotten Lost In The Mail

Happily Wedding, a wedding planning company in California, has opened up a whole new market — cat weddings. In case kitten-themed seating arrangements, feline cake toppers, the “glitter box,” and stationery marked “Furrever” wasn’t enough to make the perfect wedding day for cat-loving couple Kiera and Zach, they were then treated to the surprise arrival of kittens brought in specially to witness their wedding. I hope the cats had fun and didn’t feel too much like props, but if the video is any indication, it looks like their adventure that day was just as epic as the newlyweds’. To support the homeless kitties, Happily asked that anyone looking to adopt contact the Second Hand Souls Animal Rescue and Animal Actors. For cat loving ladies like myself, this ceremony may sound too good to be true, but a day like this can be yours for a cool $25,000. (What, you didn’t just have that laying around for your someday fantasy wedding?) Congrats to the happy couple! [The Gloss]
