Today’s Lady News: “In The Bedroom, Inequality Beats Equality”

  • “Men are aroused by being dominant and by submissive women, women are aroused by being submissive and by dominant men,” writes Ogi Ogas, Ph.D. in Psychology Today. “In the bedroom, inequality beats equality.” Those broad sweeping statements are fighting words, PT! Speaking strictly for myself, I agree with Ogi. But I wonder if other folks find this blanket statement about bedroom dynamics to ring true. Read the blog post and let me know in the comments.

  • Indiana lawmakers are toiling away at anti-abortion legislation which would require women to be told in writing that abortion could increase their chances of infertility and breast cancer, despite the fact that is medically false. Here, read the National Cancer Institute article about how the abortion/breast cancer link does not exist. And lawmakers are trying to legislate that scare tactic? SERIOUSLY, people?! [IndyStar.com]
  • A transgender woman named Brittany Novotny was elected president of Young Democrats of Oklahoma this weekend.

Bristol Palin Was This Close To Being Tina Fey’s Baby Sitter

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to [babysit] anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer … I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show.”

Tina Fey shares in her new book, Bossypants, that when Sarah Palin appeared on “SNL” in 2008, she offered up daughter Bristol Palin to babysit for Tina’s daughter, Alice, on set. This was, err, while Tina was doing her famous impersonation of her. The fact that she would still offer that is almost enough to make me like Sarah Palin. For a minute, anyway.

Unlikely Style Inspiration: “Mildred Pierce”

What’s With Reese Witherspoon’s Smile On The Cover Of Vogue?

Let me start this post off by saying that I think Reese Witherspoon is gorgeous, I am really into the retro-inspired look of this Vogue shoot and am psyched to see her movie — which inspired the look — “Water For Elephants.” It looks romantic and I am a cheeseball. However, I am very thrown off by her lips in this cover image. The way they’re strangely upturned at the corners, it’s like she’s trying to hold back a smile. Like she has a secret. A naughty, shameful secret. Like maybe she just farted in her very expensive couture gown and she’s hoping Anna Wintour doesn’t smell it and open a can of ice cold whip ass on her. Yep, that’s gotta be it. It’s all over her face. [Vogue's Tumblr] Keep reading »
