You are very kind! The response is primarily very positive. I just want to show that you can be a blustery hairy “alpha” male and a feminist at the same time. Plus, I love affirmative action. Misogyny will almost definitely outlast homophobia and racism on this planet and it’s because of systems that were put in place forever ago and assiduously maintained and strengthened over the years. So we’ve got to tear those down. And when I say “we,” that includes men. And guess what? MY LOT, as a straight white man, IMPROVES when women’s lot improves. A rising tide raises all ships > there are more women then men on the planet > if we improve women’s lot, the world is BETTER FOR EVERYONE. HOW DO PEOPLE NOT REALIZE THIS? It infuriates me, then I turn that fury into jokes, essays, basic human kindness and hard work to try and make the world a better place for everyone. WOE unto the man who doesn’t actively try to make the world better for women. Regardless of one’s spiritual beliefs, his soul will be torn apart by neon griffins in hell.

Y’all know I have a special place in my heart for the Jolie-Pitt kids. Angelina Jolie escorted 67 percent of her brood — Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox — out and about in Sydney, Australia. Shi and Zahara shared big sis duties, taking turns holding Knox’s hand. Click on for more pics (because I can never just download one).
Over the weekend, a man in a China mall gave fellow shoppers a tragic shock when he jumped off a railing and plummeted seven floors to his death.
Why? Because his girlfriend wouldn’t stop Christmas shopping. Keep reading »
The negative experiences in life can help mold and nourish it. There is no light without darkness and no laughter without pain. Let’s pick apart those regrets that mold us into who we are on Cracked.com…
On November 18, a 23-year-old woman in St. Louis, Missouri, was punched in the face. She told police she was ambushed late at night while she and her boyfriend were picking up a drunk friend from a bar and punched as part of what’s been called the “knockout game.”
The “knockout game,” in case your grandmother has not been emailing you repeatedly about it, is an alleged game teens are playing in which they attack random folks on the street and knock them out. The woman appeared on KMOV local news, describing the alleged attack and discussing how she had a double fracture of the bone under her eye and needed reconstructive surgery.
Now the woman has admitted it was all a lie. Ashley DePew, 23, was actually punched in the face by her boyfriend, Justin Simms, 25. Keep reading »
Whenever I find myself assembling a red carpet gallery for The Frisky, I’ll gaze wistfully at some floor-length formal gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence or Kerry Washington and think, I suppose I’ll never have an occasion to wear something so fancy. Like, I don’t anticipate myself ever going to the Oscars or attending some black tie gala, so a custom Armani Prive gown is probs not in my future. It’s cool, I’ve come to terms with it. What I will settle for, however, is a pair of ridiculously sparkly earrings — and so should you! Wear ‘em now to any holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, and later to add a dose of fancy bitch to your favorite everyday look. Click on for 12 pairs I’m obsessed with…
Confession: I am constantly getting Olivia Munn confused with both Olivia Wilde (same name) and Aubrey Plaza (similar face). She’s certainly not the first celeb I’ve had trouble keeping track of for whatever reason, but after some extensive Googling and looking through a ton of photos of her amazing street style outfits, I might finally have carved out a specific spot in my brain for Ms. Munn. Click through to check out some examples of her memorable fashion sense in action!
Last week, I was talking to one of my best guy friends about our various relationship dilemmas when he assured me, “It’s okay, Kate. All of this nonsense will be over once we turn 29, which is rapidly approaching.”
He was referring to our marriage pact: an agreement we made when we were 18 that if we weren’t married by the time we were 29, we would get hitched. Keep reading »
In his analysis of the problems (real and falsely perceived) with the “pink aisle,” MovieBob has some things to say about “The Hunger Games”—namely that it reinforces an outdated notion of male = good and female = bad by giving its heroine stereotypically masculine traits and the Capitol stereotypically feminine ones. Watch MovieBob explain why pink is not the problem on The Mary Sue…
