Michele Bachmann: What Sexist BS Can She Expect While Running For President?

Rep. Michele Bachmann formally announced on Monday she is seeking the Republican nomination for President. The feminist within me says, “Yay, someone with a vagina running for president!” Followed by a vehement, “OH HELL NO.” Just because a woman is running for president does not mean all women should support her. Just like Sarah Palin did, Bachmann painfully illustrates this point: She is bigoted against gays and lesbians, opposes legal abortion, and spoke out against a change in the IRS code to make breast pumps for nursing mothers tax deductible. Those are just a few of the policy reasons why Bachmann would make a terrible president. Keep reading »

Who Should David Duchovny Date Next?

It appears that Tea Leoni and David Duchovny will soon be a folder in the Ex Files. (Bad pun. Sorry, had to.) After 14 years of marriage, the two have separated. Again. You’ll probably remember that they also split in 2008 when it came to light that David suffered from sex addiction. But after he went to rehab, they got back together and renewed their vows in 2009. Apparently, it didn’t last.

I love these two together, so am sad about this split. But since there’s no use crying over spilled milk, here, who we think David should date next. Keep reading »

Beyoncé Excited To Turn 30, Starting To Think About Babies

“I’m gonna be 30. I can’t wait because 29 is very strange. You’re still in your 20s but you feel like you’re supposed to be 30, and I feel like a woman. I feel like 30 is the ideal age because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards and not be afraid of [being] too polite. But you’re young enough to be a young woman, and I’m so looking forward to it. I always said I would have a baby at 30. But I also said I was gonna retire at 30. So I don’t know. I’m not retiring, I’ll tell you.”

Beyoncé talks to Piers Morgan about her new album 4 and the big birthday that is right around the corner in September. I gotta agree with you, ‘Yonce, I’ve never quite understood why people fear turning 30. I like reboots and new beginnings, so was all about entering a brand spanking new decade. [CNN] Keep reading »

I Know Why The Caged Poetry Bomber Sings

 

I was wondering why “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” was sewn into the crotch of my bikini bottoms. I must have been poetry bombed by one of Augstina Woodgate’s people. Poetry bombers visit thrift stores and sew lines of poetry into random pieces of clothing to bring poetry to the people. How very twee. [Jezebel] Keep reading »

Would You Wear: Feather Hair Extensions?

Way back in January, Julie wrote about the awesomeness of feather hair extensions. I’ve always thought they were cute, but wasn’t totally sold on them until I saw them in action at my friend Becca’s wedding. Becca’s sister was wearing a simple black bridesmaid’s dress and a few strands of striped feathers in her blond hair. The feathers added such a cool bohemian vibe to her outfit, and I’ve been scouring Etsy shops for a similar look ever since. So I was wondering: how do you guys feel about this trend? Would you wear feather extensions? [$22, Etsy] Keep reading »
