Beware Of The Murse: Man Bags Causing Back Pain For Dudes

Listen—can you hear that? It’s the sound of the proverbial gender playing field being leveled. Us ladies are no longer the only ones with back problems thanks to slinging heavy purses over our shoulders. According to the British Chiropractic Association, there has been a 21 percent increase in the number of man bags (murses?) sold in the past year—think Cristiano Ronaldo and his trusty Gucci bag. This spells major back trouble for dudes since the average guy is now carting around 13.7 pounds worth of stuff in his bag. “Man Bags are now a necessity for many men during their daily lives, but they could cause back and shoulder pain from prolonged stress,” says an association spokesperson. “We need to become more savvy in how we use them, whilst learning to read our bodies and know when we’re placing too much pressure on certain points.” Amen to that. But when men start complaining about high-heel pain, I am outtie. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

South Dakota Bill Would Make Killing An Abortion Provider “Justifiable Homicide”

A committee in South Dakota‘s House of Representatives has passed a bill that would broaden the legal definition of “justifiable homicide” to include murders done to prevent harm to a fetus — like abortion — which reproductive rights advocates believe is a way to legalize the killing of abortion providers.

Dr. George Tiller, the late-term abortion provider who was murdered in May 2009 at his church in Kansas by an anti-abortion extremist — who later tried to use “the necessity defense” because he genuinely believed he was “saving babies” — is rolling over in his grave right now. Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: 10 Ways To Get Wedged In

I have a lot of friends who absolutely refuse to wear high heels. I am really short, so I’ve been wearing heels since I was a wee junior high school choir singer (an actual thing that actually happened). For the heel-averse, I recommend starting out with a wedge. Wedges give you lots of height while offering more support than a typical heel. And if you go with a wedge with a platform, you’ll get extra lift and feel more secure in your footing. I’ve found a smattering of some super cute, ultra modern wedges that are worth a try. And if you need me, I’ll be learning the alto harmony to “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Lady Gaga On The “Born This Way” And “Express Yourself” Parallels


Ever since the Grammys, when Lady Gaga debuted “Born This Way” live, people have been commenting on how the track sounds a whole lot like Madonna‘s “Express Yourself”—it has a similar spoken-word intro and the same sentiment, not to mention that Gaga’s long ponytail for the performance was very Blonde Ambition. (Nevermind the fact that, when accepting her award that night, Gaga said she wrote the song with Whitney Houston in mind — random!) Last night, Gaga talked to Jay Leno about the controversy and got a little verklempt when she talked about Madonna. She said, looking close to tears, “There is really no one that is a more adoring or loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally.” She went on to say that Madonna’s camp called to say they love the song. So, case closed? [Gossip Cop] Keep reading »
