Taylor Swift Trademarked “This Sick Beat”

  • Because celebrities hog all the words these days, I guess. Taylor Swift recently trademarked “this sick beat,” “cause we never go out of style,” “party like it’s 1989,” and a few other phrases, all designated for placement on merch like paper products, clothing, and temporary tattoos. [Cosmopolitan]
  • Today Amal Clooney represented Armenia in the European Court of Human Rights’ trial about the denial of the Armenian genocide, and court reporters took that to be as a good a time as any to ask her questions about fucking fashion, because everything is terrible and also sexism. [Just Jared]

PETA Made Me Do It: The 7 Types Of Sexist PETA Ads That Turned Me To Meat

Remember all of those GoDaddy ads that featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick fake-stripping? PETA had no problem with those. Those were fine. But once GoDaddy created an ad that featured a woman selling a puppy on a GoDaddy-hosted site, A LINE WAS CROSSED. Of course, PETA’s rationale for their objection was as thin as their objection to most of the ads they speak out against — they argued that the ad featured a puppy mill, but as far as I can tell, it was just a barn.

So yeah, my issue with the whole situation is that Super Bowl ads that objectify women are just fine to PETA, but god help if an animal is even cast in an advertisement. I know it’s not PETA’s job to fight for women’s rights, but you’d think that an organization whose central belief is ostensibly that all life is equally valuable would posit women and men as equally valuable, too. (Which is laughable anyway; they not only believe in kill shelters, they run one of the largest kill shelters in the country and kill animals they can’t place faster than other kill shelters.) But they don’t, and they have a long history of selling women as only sexually valuable and normalizing violence toward women in their ads. Keep reading »

5 Things People Don’t Get About Borderline Personalities

Woman

It’s not everyone who can watch a horror thriller, point at the villain and say, “Hey, that’s me!” But you can if you have  borderline personality disorder – that’s the condition that Hollywood loves to scare the shit out of men with in movies like  ”Fatal Attraction.” Any movie of that “woman seems OK at first, turns out to be an obsessive psycho!” genre is actually portraying someone with BPD. Since pop culture treats these BPD sufferers (and no, they’re not all women) as a walking Worst Case Scenario, we thought we’d sit down with one and see what it’s like to live with it.
