The “Dear Woman” Video: These Guys Are So Creepy (Even Though I Agree With Them)


I love the feminist sentiment espoused in this “Dear Woman” video by what seems to be a spirituality-based group called Conscious Men … but can we talk about how creepy these guys are? What’s with the music? The vacant intonation of voice? The cold stares? It’s just bizarre. But hey, thanks, men: I accept your apologies.

Tina Fey Is Pregnant!

Tina Fey is pregnant! Yesterday, while promoting her new memoir Bossypants on “Oprah,” Tina Fey announced she is five months pregnant. The 40-year-old and her husband, Jeff Richmond, a composer for “30 Rock,” already have a five-year-old daughter, Alice. Damn, I am so irrationally excited about this and I’m not a woman who usually cares about what’s going on in a celeb’s uterus. Who else is psyched for the growing army of mini-Tina Feys that she is producing? BWAHAHAHA! I can’t wait to see how her pregnancy gets incorporated into a Liz Lemon storyline on “30 Rock.” Mazel tov, Tina! [People] Keep reading »

The Top 10 Worst Things To Happen To Men This Millennium

worst things men g1 jpg
Our friends over at the Good Men Project Magazine, known for their thoughtful and intelligent approach to gender relations, have put together a fantastically astute slideshow of the “10 Worst Things To Happen To Women This Millennium.” For the most part, I agree that Sarah Palin, “Bridalplasty,” and vajazzling have had a terrible effect on women everywhere. However, I would like Uggs to be cut a damn break. They are like walking on clouds and walking on clouds feels awesome when you are taking your dog out to do a number two in the middle of a blizzard.

Anyway, we at The Frisky are grateful for GMP’s concern and would like to do our part to acknowledge the terrible crap that men have had to endure. Here are the 10 Worst Things To Happen To Men This Millennium, in no particular ranked order…

Bleed All Over This: Patricia Field Designs A Maxi Pad


“Can I ask you a question? Who designed your maxi pad?”

Patricia Field for Kotex.”

Fabulous, dah-ling!”

OK, just kidding. This is a conversation that will not actually happen. Patricia Field has leant her name to Kotex, but only to cases that carry feminine hygiene products in and this trippy maxi pad won’t actually be produced. (Besides, she’s a tampon fan anyway.)

Patricia will, however, mentor young designers who want to “ban the bland” and funkify a maxi pad for a Kotex contest. She told Fashionista, “I would put a design element to anything because I don’t want anything around me that’s ugly and boring. Period. Anything I can make beautiful I’ll make beautiful.” Pun, I’m assuming, not intended. [U By Kotex via Fashionista] Keep reading »

What We Hate In Common

A new study found that mutual dislikes — rather than likes — help humans bond initially. “There’s something really powerful about the discovery of shared negative attitudes,” said Jennifer Bosson, the lead researcher on this study. She found that we tend to connect when we have a third entity to demean because it makes us feel as if we instinctively understand each other better.

I know this sounds awful, but I think nearly all of my long-lasting friendships (and some relationships) began this way. My childhood best friend and I met when I was accidentally seated next to the kid who picked his warts and ate them in first grade. I cried so hard that the teacher changed the seating chart. My new neighbor and I talked about how weird Wart Boy was and we’ve been friends ever since. I met my college best friend on the steps of my freshman dorm. An awful frat guy tried to make a pass at me and I made fun of him. She laughed. We became instant besties. I know we are taught to be nice and perky to make friends. But screw that. I will continue to form bonds over things I dislike. It’s more fun that way. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
