On Men Who Like Fat Chicks

“Guys Who Like Fat Chicks.”

I assumed the worst when I read that headline. Can you blame me? As I started to read the Village Voice article about men who are attracted to obese women, I prepared myself to be offended by men who objectify and fetishize a stigmatized, marginalized group of women to get their rocks off. Luckily, what I read was surprisingly respectful and nuanced. Keep reading »

Tech Update: Commenting Almost Back To Normal!

Let me start off by saying how much I appreciate your patience. I know that over the last few months, our tech issues have been varied and vast, for reasons I can’t explain because A) I don’t entirely understand them because I have a silly liberal arts degree and B) it would take too long. But I can report good news and that is that we’ve ironed out most of the issues associated with Disqus, our new commenting system. Comments are now appearing under their correct threads. While the posts still aren’t counting how many comments they’ve gotten — we’re hoping to have that fixed shortly — you can comment and your comment will show up where it’s supposed to, as opposed to under some unrelated post. (If you see otherwise, please let me know!) In the process of fixing the bugs, we did lose some comments left over the last few days and for that we offer our apologies. If you encounter any further problems with Disqus, feel free to leave a comment under this post or {encode=”amelia@thefrisky.com” title=”email me”} directly. Thank you! Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe and then every single pair you’ve produced is going to end up in a landfill somewhere. The phrase is “Earth first,” Converse, not “Hideous sandal/hightop hybrid first, Earth second.” Shame on you. [$40, Converse] Keep reading »

Maxim Party Invite “For Beautiful Female Guests Only”

I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised when Maxim does something totally looks-ist and gross. Apparently, the magazine sent out a pretty horrifying invite to their Hot 100 party that is going down in Los Angeles next week. The party is to celebrate the 100 women who they’ve dubbed the hottest in the world—#1 this year is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—but they apparently want to make sure that the room doesn’t have any fugly ladies in it. According to The New York Post, their invitation read, “The invite is for beautiful female guests only, 21 or older. E-mail RSVP with a recent photo. Confirmation required.” The audacity of inviting someone to a shindig and then setting them up to be judged on their appearance … well … it makes me pretty mad. A Maxim rep says that this wasn’t an official invite, and was sent out by an outside promoter, and we’ll hope that’s the case. But if it’s true, I can’t wait for the day when men have to submit photos and have their looks judged just to be put on the list for a lame party. Maybe there should be an IQ test, too.

Prince William And Kate Middleton Get The Best Wedding Gift Ever

Crystal gravy boats? Meh. Monogrammed towels? Yawn. Gold-threaded table linens? Whatevs. A baby f**king penguin courtesy of England’s Chester Zoo? Now that is the best wedding gift given to Prince William and Kate Middleton! Don’t be alarmed, animal rights activists — little Acorn the Penguin isn’t going to be living at Buckingham Palace. He’ll chill with the commoner penguins at the zoo, but hopefully his new mom and dad will come visit from time to time. Check out one more photo of Acorn after the jump. Want!
