Blank Is The New Blank: Our Pop Culture Predictions For 2011

old new g1 jpg
It’s very nearly 2011, which means it is time to come up with some slightly arbitrary pop culture predictions for what we can expect in the new year! Regardless of whether or not you’re ready to give up on all the glorious things in 2010, things are changing and we are all just along for the ride. First up in our pop culture predictions, Willow Smith is the new Rihanna. The 9-year-old progeny of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith already has a hit with “Whip My Hair” and Rihanna’s stylists have already taken over on making her a pint-size fashion icon/ (I refuse to use the word “fashionista” out of principle.) She might even be getting her own clothing line with her adorable brother, Jaden! [Hollywood Life]

Etsy’s “Congratulations, You Got Bad Touched” Rape Greeting Card

This greeting card belongs on Regretsy, not Etsy: it says “Congratulations, you got bad touched!” and is advertised by the Etsy seller “youstupidbitch” as “Get creeped on, get raped? Know someone that has? Then this card is for them.” It depicts a naked woman sitting next to a shower drain with her hands on her head, possibly in distress. And it’s only $2.50 each! I’m assuming this card was uploaded by the seller and will likely get yanked down by the sensitive, liberal-minded folks over at Etsy as soon as they become aware of it. (But considering the seller also offers a wedding-themed greeting card that says, “Congratulations! She’ll make a great starter wife,” the seller might not just be screwing around.) You can see a full screengrab of the Etsy.com page after the jump. Keep reading »

Making Sense Of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Rape, Michael Moore, Naomi Wolf, And Keith Olbermann

If you signed onto a feminist or women-focused blog anytime in the past week, you might have asked yourself, “What the hell is going on?” Everyone is at least vaguely aware, I hope, of the Wikileaks cables and international man of mystery Julian Assange (though if not, I’ll explain it briefly after the jump). By why the hell is everyone talking about rape? And what does Michael Moore, of all people, have to do with it? And why did Keith Olbermann deprive the universe of his tweets?!

Allow me to attempt to explain — very, very basically — what the hell is going on … Keep reading »
