45 Things We’ve Learned From Sex Scandals

Over the past few years working at The Frisky, I have covered an exorbitant number of sex scandals. It’s pretty clear to all of us that sex scandals are cropping up more and more frequently, for both politicians and celebrities. It’s unclear whether people are stepping out more on their marriages, or if technology (texting, Twitter, Facebook) leaves people more vulnerable to being caught, or if our 15-seconds-of-fame culture leads second and third parties to step forward and soak up the limelight more than they would have in the past. But it’s clear that something is certainly up. Insert Weiner joke here.

Oddly, through the sex scandal onslaught, I feel like we’ve learned an awful lot. After the jump, 45 lessons—both big and small—that recent sex scandals have taught us. Who knew they were so educational? Keep reading »

Strippers, Guns & Booty Shaking: Behold, The Most Offensive Political Ad Ever


Strippers, guns, rap music, booty shaking, gangstas … why, it’s the most offensive, sexist, racist political ad you’ve ever seen. This NSFW commercial called “Hahn’s Homeboyz” begins to criticize Janice Hahn, a Los Angeles City Councilwoman running for a Democratic Congressional seat, for her proposal to use “taxpayer money” to hire former gang members in prison “so they could rape and kill again!” I mean, so they could teach current gang members how to quit the life.

Barack Obama On Being A Dad

“I grew up without a father around. I have certain memories of him taking me to my first jazz concert and giving me my first basketball as a Christmas present. But he left when I was two years old. And even though my sister and I were lucky enough to be raised by a wonderful mother and caring grandparents, I always felt his absence and wondered what it would have been like if he had been a greater presence in my life.

Barack Obama shares his thoughts on being a dad in an essay in the latest issue of People, just in time for Father’s Day. Man, this is one adorable family. Keep reading »
