Racist, Sexist Daily Mail Writer Liz Jones Says Rihanna “Invites Rape” In Her Scandalous Outfits

Granted, the UK’s Daily Mail (aka the Daily Fail) is not the place you go to read nuanced, tasteful analysis, but writing that Rihanna “surely invites rape [and] disrespect” by wearing provocative clothes is a new low. Writer Liz Jones also said it’s “fair” to “berate female stars” more than young male ones because “young wome…

Are You What You’re Wearing? Psychologist Jen Baumgartner Thinks So

Most days, I just throw on whatever’s comfortable and cute, and whatever doesn’t make me feel self-conscious or overly-critical of my new thirtysomething gut.

Women Who Go Into The Workforce Are Ugly, According To Rush Limbaugh’s Wildly Inaccurate Twisting Of Study

I’m fairly certain that Rush Limbaugh could take Goodnight, Moon and twist it into a tale of shrill harpies hellbent on John Bobbitt-ing the male species and strangling newborn babies with their long, flowing strands of armpit hair.

Samantha Brick Has Very High Self-Esteem, Is Possibly Delusional

Samantha Brick is a lady writer for the UK’s Daily Mail, which makes her, yes, perhaps less than 100 percent credible. She also thinks she’s totally the most gorgeous woman in the world. Don’t believe me? Just ask her. She wrote a 2,000 word screed on the subject for the paper. And she was entirely serious.

The Daily Mail Has Issues, Fat Issues

Notice anything weird about this block of blog ads in The Daily Mail’s Femail section? One headline mourns the loss of a daughter, blaming super-thin starlets for supposedly encouraging anorexia.

The Woman In The Mirror Is Skinnier Than You Think

When someone tells you that you’re not fat, it can be hard to believe them when you’re staring in the mirror. Don’t they see that jiggly mess there? Maybe you have some nice friends. But you might also be distorting what you see. Body dysmorphic disorder affects one in every 100 women in the U.K.,…

I used to enjoy reading about Amy Winehouse’s antics. But over the months, it’s become too sad to file under enjoyment. The Daily Mail sent a reporter to St. Lucia to find out what Crazy Amy, as the locals call her, has been up to. And it’s awfully gloomy.

People in love can be really annoying to people that aren’t. But then there are some people in love that are annoying to everyone in the universe, even the most Hallmark-y, optimistic, happy-go-lucky teddy bears. Like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
