Got Ink? No Drink! Swedish Nightclub Doesn’t Serve Tattooed Women

A Swedish nightclub refused entry to two women because they had visible tattoos. The Swing Inn, which has a policy of turning away people with tattoos, allowed the women to enter on different occasions over the past few years, one of the women said. But on this particular night, they were showing too much ink. “They told us that they don’t let in women with visible tattoos. But if we put on a sweater it would be alright,” Jessica Brotherton said. Here’s what the club manager, Gabrielle Holst, had to say: “We want to have a well-groomed clientele with neat clothing. We think that tattoos look distasteful.” Whoa! I guess the Swing Inn doesn’t cater to celebrities because most of them have at least one tattoo. Rihanna would surely have a difficult time trying to hide all her tattoos. This story brings to mind the debate we had a couple of weeks ago: Are Tattoos On Women (Gasp!) Trashy? Some tattoos are and some aren’t, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to shame anyone for their tattoo. [UPI.com via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Men And Women Both Care More About Pretty Faces Than Hot Bodies

I’ll save you all the nitty-gritty, scientific-y details and just give you the good news. Forget about your diet and focus on your face cream if you’re in the market for a long-term mate. A new study by Dr. Currie at Royal Society University in London confirmed that men and women approach long-term relationships in a similar way—both genders pay way more attention to gorgeous faces than hot bodies. When it comes to short-term relationships … well, women were more likely to go for face over body while the dudes placed much more importance on the body than the face. Shocker. Gives a whole new meaning to the term “butter face.” [Evolution and Human Behavior] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: Boyfriend’s Crazy-Jealous Of Girlfriend’s New Boss-Man

I have a girlfriend of eight months who I have not been able to see for three months due to financial issues and concerns. She recently started a new job in mid July 2009. Things appeared okay at first, but I noticed that things started to change quickly between us after she returned from an out-of-state training she went to with her (married) male boss. She started telling me she has to attend weekly lunch meetings with her boss at least 2 – 3 times per week. She’s stopped answering her cell phone during the day when I call, she refuses to respond to my text messages, she has been deleting e-mails from her computer so her children won’t be able to see them, she has been hiding text messages on the cell phones she is using (both the company’s and her personal). She removed the house phone and placed it in her car stating that she was concerned that her children would abuse it. She leaves the room when she gets a phone call that she does not want her children to hear. She calls me on her company issued cell phone as being private caller. When her boss calls her she quickly gets off the phone with me to talk with him. Today she referred to him by his first name three times. She told me that we could not see each other until she is able to lose 40 pounds. And she said that her boss told her that he cannot wait for them to relocate into their new office building so they’ll be able to share an office. What is going on that I am not accepting or seeing? I feel in my heart that they are having an affair. I need to know if I am justified in my feelings.

Don’t Be This Guy: The Creepy “Georgetown Cuddler”

Ew, this is every woman’s worst nightmare happening in real life: a creepy man dubbed “The Georgetown Cuddler” is going around D.C. college campuses, breaking into dorm rooms, and climbing on top of sleeping women. Last week, a female Georgetown student woke up at 4 a.m. to find a stranger in her home touching her inappropriately, just two days after another student woke up with a man believed to be the Cuddler lying next to her on the couch and covering her face. Apparently, this creep also likes to take a blanket from the victim’s bedroom, lay it on top of her, and then he lies on top of the blanket, too. Oh, and occasionally he tries to rape his victims “with varying success.” The Sexist blog, based in D.C., suggested more appropriate names for this creep could be “The Georgetown Entry-Gainer,” “The Georgetown Blanketlayer” or “The Georgetown Rapist.” Gross. Hopefully, some girl bonks this guy on the head with her vibe so police can catch the perv.

Alas, I know exactly how freaky this is, because the weirdo-in-my-bed thing actually happened to me once. Not with the Georgetown Cuddler, though. More, after the jump… Keep reading »
