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 »
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 »

Back in November, we told you that Warner Brothers is making a new “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” movie, only without Sarah Michelle Gellar, who became a girl power icon on the TV show, or Joss Whedon, who created both the series and the 1992 movie. Naturally, this doesn’t have us Buffy-philes very happy. But some casting news could be the silver lining on a cloudy day. Apparently, Heather Morris—aka the amazing Brittany on “Glee“—is being courted for the role. “They’re considering me!” Heather says. “I found out and I almost peed my pants ’cause I was so excited!”
So how does Heather compare to her Buffy predecessors, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kristy Swanson? A full analysis after the jump. Keep reading »
Wondering how the hideous collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia came about? Let Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder and creative chief officer, explain:
“Uggs were my guilty pleasure until I was on a flight to London and the airline staff said, ‘We’re all so excited to see what shoes you’re wearing!’ I had Uggs on. So now we’ve done a collaboration where I took traditional Uggs and decorated them with the DNA of Jimmy Choo — animal prints and studs.”
I think we can all probably agree that Uggs were doing just fine without an injection of Jimmy Choo DNA. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Have a great time partying it up this New Year’s Eve. You won’t see me there.
Instead of getting wildly drunk and making out with a random stranger, I’m going to do what I’ve done for the last four years: I’m skipping New Year’s.
There will be no wild parties with fireworks inside (yes, something that actually happened at one of my New Year’s Eve parties several years ago, and no, it wasn’t a good idea), I’ve taken to sharing the holiday ensconced in the woods with one of my close friends. Keep reading »
