Would You Dress Like A Mental Patient For Halloween?

Amanda Hess has kicked off her annual homage to insane and insanely offensive Halloween costumes for ladies, and this year’s first installment is a real doozy. “Which costume will reign as the year’s most utterly disagreeable foray into hypersexualized make-believe?” Hess wonders. It’s hard to say. Seen here is the perfect outfit for the clinically insane among us. Nothing says, “I’m sexy!” like a straight jacket, right? You can look like a true 5150 for a mere $55.95. Keep an eye on Hess’ blog in the days between now and Halloween for the best of sexy costumes gone horrifyingly wrong. [TBD, costumes available at Yandy.com] Keep reading »

Christina Hendricks Gets Hit On By Women As Often As Men

“Women hit on me. My husband thinks it’s so odd that so many women hit on me … [And gay men] say to me, ‘Well, I’m not straight, but if I was …’ I think it’s so flattering.”

Christina Hendricks tells Harper’s Bazaar that she’s still surprised by all the gushing her voluptuous figure has inspired since the start of “Mad Men,” and that it’s not just hornball straight dudes showering her with attention. By the way, how stunning is this cover? [People]

Gabrielle Union Has More Booty Than You Do

And I thought I had a lot of junk in my trunk. Horny dudes looking to see Gabrielle Union in a sexy lingerie shoot will get another thing altogether when Union reveals that she has more of a booty bubble than any of us ever will. I don’t want to give away the ending, but I will say that the surprise is about as sexy as Eva Mendes’ sex tape. Keep reading »

Oh, that James Franco. Always up to something new and wacky! This time the performance artist/actor/all-around hottie is in drag on the cover of Candy magazine. The lovely photo was taken by Terry Richardson. What a “trans-formation,” indeed. He’s a little Angelica Houston, a little Jackie Beat. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Do Feminists Need A “Coming Out Day”?

Growing up is all about figuring out who you are, who you can call a real friend, and if you are really (really?) just going to turn into your parents. So, yeah, it’s a pretty crappy experience for everybody — and especially so if the place you call home does not embrace being “different.” In the past few decades, LGBT groups and their allies have made huge inroads helping gay young adults feel welcome with gay-straight alliance clubs and the like. In fact, Human Rights Watch’s nationwide event, National Coming Out Day, is next week, on October 11. The day doesn’t necessarily promote gay folks “coming out” of the closet, but it promotes everyone voicing their support for gay rights and equality. Given how just last month, an 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman jumped to his death after his roommate live-streamed his gay encounter on the internet, events like Coming Out Day are so important for visibility.

Later this year, there will be another coming out day: a recent college graduate is organizing “Feminist Coming Out Day” to take place on March 8, 2011, which also just happens to be International Women’s Day. Keep reading »
