Today’s Lady News: UF Professor Fired For Saying Latinas Dress Sluttier Than American Women

  • A University of Florida professor was fired for saying Latina women dress sluttier than American women during a lecture on sexual harassment, apparently in reference to the sports reporter Ines Sainz. Timothy Taylor has filed a grievance complaint alleging his academic freedom has been stifled. UF is having none of it, considering Taylor was suspended twice before for “inappropriate interactions with female students,” like touching their hair, and was told further inappropriate behavior would get him canned. Why would the school keep someone around so long who had so many complaints against him? [Miami Times]
  • Unprofessionalism alert: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand at a recent event by saying, “We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member.” Witnesses said Sen. Gillibrand turned red and the audience started tittering. Tell me, Sen. Reid, would you introduce a male senator this way, too? [Feministing]

Lady Gaga Does Her Best Richard Nixon Impression

Lady Gaga flashed the peace sign at a rally in favor of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in Portland, Maine today. Interestingly, though Gaga is clearly a politically passionate individual, especially when it comes to social issues like gay rights, she isn’t so stoked on her fans expressing their opinions at her concerts. According to a security rider uncovered by The Smoking Gun, Gaga prohibits all “political banners” at her concerts. [The Smoking Gun] Keep reading »

Jared the Subway Guy (i.e., Jared Fogle) lost 245 lbs. eating Subway and walking to his local branch every day. Although Jared was back in the news last year after gaining back 40 lbs., he got back on track to lose weight for his wedding this past August. It’s pretty amazing that you could build another overweight person from Jared’s weight loss, but it’s got to be a lot of pressure to have TMZ watching to make sure he doesn’t gain the weight back.

Blind Item Time! Who’s The Cross-Dressing Academy Award Nominee With A Spanking Fetish?

If there is one thing we like more than an actor with a spanking fetish, it’s one with a cross-dressing and a spanking fetish. Do you have any idea whom this blind item might be referring to?

“This actor who was an Academy Award nominee/winner has been married for quite some time. While on the set of a recent movie he started having an affair with this actress who was a Golden Globe nominee/winner. Nothing really that juicy about the affair except for the fact the couple never had sex. Nope. Turns out our actor just likes to have our actress spank him while he wears some of her clothes.”

The Frisky does not — I repeat, does not — know the answer to this blind item, so don’t ask us. We’re just soliciting your gossipy opinions in the comments! [Crazy Days And Nights] Keep reading »
