Female Bloggers Ask, Is Taylor Swift Bad For Women?

Let me start off by saying a few things: I’m a feminist; I love Taylor Swift; and I also respect the minds of bloggers Kate Harding of Broadsheet and Amanda Hess of The Sexist.

But I really disagree with both of them, as well as with Sady Doyle on Bitch magazine’s She Pop blog, about Taylor Swift, specifically how detrimental it supposedly is that Swift’s songs “reinforce some not-so-woman-friendly stereotypes in extremely annoying ways,” as Harding wrote.

I know. Heavy stuff for a Monday. Keep reading »

    Lady Gaga Is Unhealthy For Your Relationship

    Songs can be dangerous to your health, says a teen panel that has developed a “nutrition facts label” for currently popular songs. The panel worked with the Boston Public Health Commission and judged songs based on “healthy relationship ingredients” like equality, trust, and respect and also “unhealthy relationship ingredients” like possession/obsession, disrespect, and drama. Their conclusions are then displayed in a chart similar to the nutrition facts chart found on food labels. The health commission says these labels help consumers become lyric nutritionists, so they can better identify the themes in a song that will undoubtedly have an impact on their mood and relationships, and then can consume more “healthy relationship ingredients” for a “balanced media diet.”

    Both Lady Gaga‘s “Paparazzi” and “Bad Romance” made it into the top 10 list of unhealthy songs, but “Break Up” by Mario featuring Gucci Mane and Sean Garrett, which has themes of manipulation and disrespect, topped the list. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

    Girl Talk: I Hit My Boyfriend

    Years ago, when I was about, oh, a year into my relationship with my now ex, he and I got in a fight (over what, who knows), I lost my temper, and I started hitting him. Not in the face, but on his arms, my fists balled up. I think I shoved him a few times too. He didn’t do anything back, aside from wrapping his way stronger arms around me, so I couldn’t hit him anymore, and to calm me down, because I was crying. Once I settled, he told me I could never, ever, ever hit him or shove him or do anything physical like that again — that it was unfair. Even though I “was a woman” and significantly less strong than him (seriously, we would play-wrestle and I would be defeated in, like, two seconds), taking my anger or frustration out on him physically was not OK ever, especially because he never would or could do the same to me and have there be any excuses.

    Would You Put Your Baby In A Pod-Like Case?

    The Smart Baby Case pod was designed by Iranian Pouyan Mokhtaran for Samsonite, which tasked designers with developing new and easier ways of traveling with babies. The pod is suitable for everyday travel or disaster scenarios, suggests Mokhtaran, because it has several “safety breath” doors, an air purification unit, a communication system and LED screen, an auto-rocking unit, and custom-fitted foam pads that surround the baby. And the Auto Diaper unit wraps around the baby’s bottom, senses moisture, and gently flushes liquid and solid waste into the waste storage unit — you never have to change a soiled diaper. But there are some serious downsides to the product: You have to empty the waste storage unit periodically and your baby has to remain naked from the waist down. Studies have shown that touch is an important aspect of a baby’s development, something the Smart Baby Case doesn’t seem to take into account. Plus, won’t babies miss out on social interaction if they’re always viewing life through a window? I’m surprised this case doesn’t have a feeding tube that also connects to the baby. What are your thoughts? Is this pod-like case the wave of the future or just another overly protective device? [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
