The other day, I read a post on the liberal politics blog, The Daily Kos, called “What Does A Feminist Man Look Like?” and unfortunately I found it a little thin. But I’ve been lucky enough to know a fair number of feminist-minded, progressive men and I could spot one from a mile away. Or I could just tell you about him. What follows is by no means a complete list, but it’s a decent summation of a guy who believes women deserve every bit of dignity, respect and agency given to men.
Men, you might be a feminist if you … Keep reading »
Poor Jesus Condom. I’m sure he gets teased mercilessly. What were his parents thinking? Obviously about God and birth control. A great name for a band, yes, but not for a child. Check out other people with very unfortunate names such as Sally Mangina, Batman Bin Suparman, and B.J. Cobbledick here. [Funny or Die] Keep reading »
From freshman year on, Donna Martin and Kelly Taylor of “Beverly Hills, 90210” called their Venice Beach apartment, with its white decks and blue awnings, home. But apparently, the abode whose exterior we saw so often wasn’t actually an apartment building—it’s a single family house. Oh, and it also isn’t in Venice Beach—it’s actually located in Hermosa Beach. Did I mention that the house is for sale and could be yours for $9 million? Come on—this is the place where Kelly brought Tara to stay after they checked out of rehab. Not to mention where Donna finally lost her virginity to David. I mean, this place deserves historical landmark status. Any takers? [People] Keep reading »
Solange‘s ensemble for the Elle Women in Music concert in Hollywood wasn’t met with the best reception. I’m sure her bralette top has something to do with that. However, the ’70s feel of the high-waist pants, long cardigan, and floppy hat is right in step with the sophisticated bohemian vibe this season. Solange’s look would be completely wearable with a more substantial yet sexy top. See how you can recreate the look after the jump. Keep reading »
The first season of “Friday Night Lights” was sort of like a Rorschach test for its straight, female viewers: do you want a Jason Street, a Tim Riggins, or Matt Saracen type? Knowing whether you gravitate toward the popular guy, the bad boy, or the underdog tells you a lot about yourself. But over the years, the original “FNL” characters moved on. (Most recently: Riggins to jail.) And with the fifth and final season of our favorite show beginning tonight on NBC, we thought it was time to pose the question with the show’s new class of football players. So: Vince Howard, Luke Cafferty, and Hastings Ruckle—who would we shun, shag, and marry? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Given all the video games that depict women in sexist and degrading roles, it’s about time someone made a video game offensive to men. (Sarcasm, people.) Meet “The Boyfriend Trainer,” in which a chick “trains” her boyfriend to behave by slapping and tasing him, is wholly inappropriate to be marketed to impressionable tween girls.
And impressionable tween girls, of course, are exactly who “The Boyfriend Trainer” is marketed to. Domestic violence is fun, kids! Keep reading »
