No, These Cyclers Aren’t Half Naked, But Their Uniforms Have Been Deemed ‘Unacceptable’

No, These Cyclers Aren't Half Naked, But Their Uniforms Have Been Deemed 'Unacceptable'

A Colombian women’s cycling team uniform is causing quite a stir. As some point out, the garment’s light-colored section appears to make the riders look partially nude.

Photos of the uniformed Bogota Humana team riders at the women’s Giro Toscana race in Italy this weekend have spread like wildfire across social media, where users were quick to point out the unfortunately placed portion of the uniform, or kit. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…

FSU Suspends Jameis Winston For Half A Game For Yelling “Fuck Her Right In The Pussy” On Campus

todays lady news
  • Florida State University suspended star quarterback Jameis Winston for the first half of an upcoming game on Saturday after he stood up on a table on campus and yelled “Fuck her right in the pussy!” The school called his behavior — which is apparently part of some dumb meme — ”offensive and vulgar.” [New York Times; Deadspin]
  • Female students at Tottenville High School on Staten Island in New York City say they’re being targeted by the school’s new dress code, which bans short-shorts, miniskirts, tank tops, low-cut blouses, halter tops, tube tops, midi shirts, and visible bras/underwear. (FWIW, hoodies, bandanas, hats and bandanas are also banned.)  [Staten Island Live (1); Staten Island Live (2)] Keep reading »

This Week In Missing The Point, Starring Rush Limbaugh And Sean Hannity

Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity

Wealthy White Guys Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity demonstrated their ongoing obliviousness this week by completely ignoring everything that matters about issues like rape and child abuse, throwing out incredibly dumb red herrings on the issues instead.

First, Limbaugh asserted on his radio show that “no means yes if you know how to spot it” and lamented that “that used to be part of the advice boys were given” — that “no” means “yes,” that is. Oh, woe is me, Rush Limbaugh. It’s so terrible that boys aren’t being told to make women’s minds up for them as far as consent goes (or in other words, you know, rape women). This was in response to Ohio State’s enthusiastic consent policy, which requires explicit verbal consent at every step of a sexual interaction, a policy which, by the way, benefits all students at Ohio State, not just female students. Lord knows, the really important thing about America’s campus rape epidemic isn’t, you know, the fact that there are so many victims of rape, or the fact that campus rape investigations get fucked up so often — partially because universities’ policies on rape are vague, a problem which this policy seeks to solve — but the potential loss of the “art of seduction.” GAG.

A woman in Flint, Michigan demonstrated that having a baby in the womb makes you superhuman: After getting her purse snatched in a Kroger parking lot, the woman, who was nine months pregnant, ran down the thief, who proceeded to push her over (BASTARD!).  I say was pregnant because later that day she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. All in a day’s work, amirite, ladies? Two of her family members stopped the purse-snatcher and held him until police arrived. Craziness — but hey, silver lining is that that baby was born into a boss, loyal family. [Huffington Post] [Image: City of Flint Police Department]

5 Things To Know About Cartoonist Alison Bechdel, Winner Of A MacArthur “Genius” Grant

Alison Bechdel

There are plenty of people in the world who get nice things that they don’t (IMHO) deserve. So it’s especially nice when someone completely and utterly deserving is recognized for their greatness. I felt all the warm and fuzzies this morning when I heard on the news that the cartoonist and graphic novelist Alison Bechdel is a 2014 recipient of a MacArthur “Genius Grant,” one of the world’s most prestigious prizes. Bechdel draws the popular LGBTQ comic strip Dykes To Watch Out For and is the author/illustrator of the memoirs Are You My Mother? and Fun Home, the latter of which is one of the most esteemed books in the graphic novel genre (and a favorite of mine).

As a winner of the “Genius Grant,” which is awarded to between 20 and 40 individuals who “show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work,” Bechdel will receive upwards of $625,000 paid out over five years. The intention is for winners to use the prize money to continue doing their good work. Past winners have included people like “The Wire” creator David Simon, authors Chimamanda Ngozi Adihie, Junot Diaz and Edwidge Dandicat, and critic Susan Sontag.

After the jump, here are five things to know about Alison Bechdel, her cartoons and her important mark on pop culture! Keep reading »
