“To give [anti-abortion] campaigners more time to enjoy life instead of making stunt videos that have no point, here is a cut-out-and-keep list on how to stop women having sex, guaranteed:
- Chop off genitals at birth. They can have them reattached at their heterosexual
wedding, in between the cake and the throwing of the bouquet.
- Force all teenagers to watch their parents having sex. Effective, although there is a risk they will never have sex again and the human race will die out.
- Rearrange human biology so that it’s men who get pregnant. It might not end verboten sexual relations, but it will probably put an end to old white guys trying to ban abortion and targeting the most vulnerable women, from rape victims to the needy poor, in the worst circumstances.
— British journalist Hadley Freeman‘s tounge-in-cheek suggestions for better ways that anti-abortion extremist groups like Live Action can use their time rather than playing “gotcha!” with Planned Parenthood by secretly videotaping them in stunt videos with fake pimps and prostitutes. Hadley suggests, quite rightly, that as much as some anti-abortion extremists are against abortion, they seem to just be plain against women having non-procreative sex, period. I recommend her whole article; it’s a good read! [Guardian UK] Keep reading »
A new study found that women are most attracted to the men they know the least. Researchers used Facebook profiles, real and fake, and discovered that the women liked the men best that they knew the least about. We like the guys who play hard to get and, nine times out of 10, lead to no good. Tell us something we don’t know. Like how to make us stop. I would like to take these findings and set fire to them. I’m embarrassed for us. Can we just stop being idiotic masochists when it comes to love already? [Live Science] Keep reading »
What in the name of Billy Corgan?! D’arcy Wretsky, the talented bassist from ’90s alternative band Smashing Pumpkins, was arrested on Tuesday on an outstanding bench warrant. Clearly, it was not the greatest day she’s ever known. The details of her case are pretty boring — it involves some horses getting free from a farm she owns in Michigan or something — but her mugshot is completely epic. D’arcy, what the hell happened?!

I get called a “slut” all the time. My friend Ashley calls me a slut like it’s my name: “Slut!” The Frisky staff calls each other sluts when we divulge our sexual escapades. Internet commenting trolls call me a slut fairly regularly (and a “bitch”, and a c-word, and plenty of other foul things). I call myself a slut, like, say, last week when I hooked up with a dude on the first date. A lot of 20-something women are used to being called a slut in some area of their lives, in every situation from “haha, just kidding” with our friends or (cool) co-workers to more serious areas, like when it’s hurled at us by a catcaller. “Slut” is one of those female-centric words — like “bitch,” like “feminist” — that can mean so many things that it almost means nothing anymore. Except, it turns out, in bed. Keep reading »
As of yesterday, two lovely famous ladies are once again on the market. First, Olivia Wilde separated from her husband, Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince. Honestly, we didn’t even realize she was married, but apparently the two met when she as 18. He proposed at Burning Man and they got married on a bus. “We were hippies,” she once told Playboy. “We lived on that bus for months.” Sadly, the party is now over. [LA Times]
And then there’s Ashlee Simpson, who filed for divorce from her husband of two and a half years, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.
After the jump, we pick who these two should date next. Keep reading »
