Five more women have come forward to accuse former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio host Jian Ghomeshi of abuse and harassment, which makes eight alleged victims in total. Ghomeshi has roundly denied the accusations, claiming that what he did was in fact not abuse but consensual BDSM, and that a jilted former partner had been conspiring against him, reaching out to other women he had formerly dated, in order to bring forth these accusations. Ghomeshi was fired from his job at the CBC, and he claimed in a Facebook post that the CBC fired him because of his BDSM lifestyle:
They later said to me and my team that there is no question in their minds that there has always been consent. They said they’re not concerned about the legal side. But then they said that this type of sexual behavior was unbecoming of a prominent host on the CBC. They said that I was being dismissed for ‘the risk of the perception that may come from a story that could come out.’

There’s something magical about movies. Whether you’re watching one in a dark theater, on a couch with some popcorn, or under the comfort of a blanket in your own bed, movies allow us a very specific form of escape.
And women tend to be the most regular moviegoers out there. According to a 2012 MPAA report, women actually go to the movies more than men, making up 52% of in-theater audiences each year. It’s a wonder then that there aren’t more female-led blockbusters. (Hint hint, nudge nudge, Hollywood powers that be.)
Even though the characters are usually fictional, we’ve learned some pretty amazing lessons from the people that come alive in our favorite films. Read more on Huffington Post Women…
I know, I know, I’ve been complaining the last two weeks about the NFL getting boring. And it’s true, right around this time of the season, it does get a little hum-drum. We’re too far away to reasonably start calling playoff berths, but too deep into the season to find freshly contrived celebrations as adorable as they once were (looking at you Peyton Manning, but again, congrats on the career TD record). But Week 8? Week 8 was a gift from the NFL gods, full of both surprises and screw-ups. Huge games were lost. Improbable games were won on even more improbable penalties. Memes were mocked on-field, proving the machines have indeed taken over. Here were the best, worst, and by far most laughable moments of Week 8. Keep reading »
