Confession: I am a bad Jew. I kind of forgot about Hanukkah. Granted, being away from my family on the holiday might have had something to do with it, but I’m normally pretty pumped for Hanukkah. (Eight nights of presents! Take that, Christmas Tree People!). Confession #2: I’m one of those Jews who really likes Christmas, too. (Yes.) So I’ve already been a traitor to my people, blasting Christmas music for three nights in a row now. Oops! At least we Jews don’t get coal for being bad? If you’re prepping for the holiday, or need to make up for lost time (like me), check out these cool Judaica items to get you in the Hanukkah spirit!

TSA Body Search Inspires Love

While most of us are dreading invasive TSA searches at the airport, one guy in Reno loved his enough to post a Missed Connection on Craigslist. Pretty sad that a TSA full-body pat down is the only action this guy is getting. Should someone email him and let him know that the dude who cupped his nuts was just doing his job? Or was he?

Khloe Kardashian Talks About Statutory Rape

I think it’s really brave of Khloe Kardashian to talk about losing her virginity at age 14 on “The Joy Behar Show.” She says she was pressured by her 18-year-old boyfriend. Ahem, statutory rape. Khloe admits that for three years after the experience, she felt too uncomfortable with her body to have sex. While these things are difficult to talk about, especially publicly, I’m glad she did. There’s this gray area of sexual experience for young women that can be so confusing—when the sex is consensual, but coerced. It’s hard to put into words, but Khloe does it well and I think a lot of young girls will relate. Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, plays too bashful to talk about sex. She thinks it’s “super personal.” Yet, she’s famous from a sex tape. Lame, Kim. Lame. [CNN] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Repulses Me”

When I asked my current boyfriend out, I was very clear to explain that I wanted something casual and certainly not monogamous. But somehow, he now thinks that we are a monogamous couple and is planning our future together. He keeps planning for events I don’t want to attend and talking as if we will always be together. He has become repulsive to me and I no longer feel that I want to be in a sexual/close emotional relationship with him but at the same time want to keep him as a friend. With that said, I am currently looking to pursue others outside of my boyfriend, more specifically someone of the same gender. Another complicating factor is that he and I volunteer for the same organization and within the same department, which means I need things to go amicably whether it be a relationship restructure or moving on. How do I get him to understand that we both feel differently about this relationship and its future and do so in a way that will not make it uncomfortable to work together in our volunteer work? Should this be the end? Is moving back to friends a possibility? — Romantically Doomed and Challenged

PETA Weighs In On Airport Body Scans

Airports in New York, Las Vegas and Charlotte, North Carolina, have said “no” to a proposed PETA ad campaign of a skinny woman’s physique under a body scan X-ray with the words, “Be proud of your body scan: go vegan.” (The Vegas airport claimed they don’t post “political” ads.) Good to know that PETA is not only still making everything about themselves, but they’re still using scantily clad women’s bodies to entice you to give up Big Macs. [Bust] Keep reading »
