8 Mind-Blowing Facts That Some Men Apparently Don’t Know About Women

8 Mind-Blowing Facts That Some Men Apparently Don't Know About Women

Yeah, I know that #notallmen are dum-dums about the way that female bodies and brains work, but I can produce evidence from the Internet and my inbox that enough are to merit some clarification. Seriously, some of the things humans with penises say about humans with vaginas are mystifying, especially when it appears that the Penis Humans don’t think that Vagina Humans are of the same species and therefore have an entirely different set of elements governing the way our bodies work.

I’m not saying this stuff to pick on guys. I’m just saying it to express my bafflement. If a vocal group of ladies were saying on a consistent basis, “Isn’t it so weird that guys have hair all over their bodies?” y’all would be pretty baffled by that sentiment too. Without further ado… Keep reading »

Woman Punches Man After He Farts In Her Face

Jessica Annette Cerney

Well, this stinks. Jessica Annette Cerney was minding her own business, laying on the couch at home in Myrtle Beach, when Darrell Ray McKnight — presumably a friend or acquaintance of Cerney’s who, according to the police report, “routinely” sleeps on the front porch — wandered inside and “passed gas” in Cerney’s face. Cerney bolted outside (that bad?) and McKnight followed her. The pair got into a tussle, with McKnight approaching Cerney in a “threatening manner,” and Cerney punched McKnight in the face three times. Police were called, McKnight was sent to the hospital to be treated for a swollen eye, and both he and Cerney face charges for disorderly conduct.

See, this is why you have to be mindful about where and when you fart, because you could get hurt. My grandmother — RIP Colleen Parry! — was always very cautious, and would back her butt into the corner of a room to “toot.” If only everyone was as respectful. [Death and Taxes]

There Are More Adult Women Gamers Than Gamer Boys Under 18

todays lady news
  • The face of gaming is still a pack of rowdy preteen boys, faux-blasting each other with pixelated guns for giggles. In the United States, adult women are an impressive 48 percent of all gamers — more than gamer boys under 18. A huge part of the increase is due to mobile games, like “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” “Candy Crush,” and the not-still-popular-but-still-on-my-phone “Angry Birds.” [Wall Street Journal]

“Mad Men” Creator Matthew Weiner Doesn’t Believe The Pay Gap Is A Gender Issue

“I don’t know that those two things — I don’t think that’s a gender issue. I’m not saying that there’s an inequality of pay, I don’t know that to be — I have a lot of women on my staff and they’re competitively paid, I can tell you that. In terms of my career, if Jenji [Kohan] wants to go through what I went through to get that … they didn’t invite me over to the smoking room and sit down and say ‘well Matthew, how much do you think you’re worth?’ There was like a year and a half of being dragged around in the press and I don’t even like to talk about it, and I certainly don’t like to talk about pay. It’s one of these things, like you’re a baseball player, and I guess your salary is public, but I don’t own a baseball team. I’m a player! There’s no player making as much as the person owning the team and no one talks about that … Jenji’s entitled to every dollar but you have to fight for it, male or female. No one gives you anything … I’m not informed on it but I think there’s a lot more — I shouldn’t speak to it, I really shouldn’t. I can just tell you that as an employer, I’ve been on top of this and I’ve never let anybody try and squeeze people out of it. January Jones had a baby on our show. Believe me, no one wanted to pay maternity leave on a 13-episode thing, and we did.”

In an interview with Huffington Post Live, Matthew Weiner, the mastermind behind “Mad Men” and “The Sopranos,” had some choice words regarding the gender pay gap (or, in his mind, the lack thereof). His thoughts are in response to “Orange Is The New Black” creator Jenji Kohan’s comment in The Hollywood Reporter that she doesn’t feel she’s getting paid as much as male show runners do. Kohan, who is good friends with Weiner, pointed to his paycheck as an example of how sexist Hollywood can be. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised at his response, but the fact that Weiner writes misogyny into his work doesn’t mean the plot lines of his shows necessarily reflect his beliefs about women.
