It is 2016, people, which means once again it is time to remind all you lovely men what it means to be a man! It has everything to do with identifying yourself as a man and little to do with how you actually express that gender. Got it? Good.
I’ve had a lot… More »
A Kansas state senator has some people’s knickers in a twist after implementing a new dress code that singles out women who wear “skimpy skirts or blouses with plunging necklines,” the Topeka Capital-Journal reports. Mitch Holmes is the chairman of the state’s ethics and elections committee, and his new dress code applies to those testifying before… More »
Figuring out what I’m going to wear to my wedding is driving me totally insane. More »
This kind of bullshit makes my blood boil: the New York Post’s cover today shows a picture of New York City’s First Lady Chirlane McCray with the headline, “I WAS A BAD MOM.” It references an article that just came out in New York magazine about McCray’s life in which she writes about her difficulties… More »
Oh good, another depressing study about women and sex! Bring it on.
College-aged women would prefer not to be friends with promiscuous women (defined as having 20 or more sexual partners by their early 20s), even when they themselves have had numerous sexual partners or claim to have liberal views about sex. This… More »
Holy double standard, Batman!
Our fellow ladyblog Jezebel has an exclusive today about a 16-year-old Catholic school student in Fairfax, Virginia, who sexted a photo to two lacrosse players at the school, who then shared it with the rest of their team. The girl has been kicked out of school. Everyone on the… More »
Celebrity gossip is not the place to look for nuance or thoughtfulness. A lot of it is downright sexist. Take, for example, today’s headline on New York Post gossip page’s Page Six column, “Selena Gomez ‘To Blame For Justin Bieber’s Behavior’.”
You’re probably aware that pop stars Gomez and Bieber were, for a… More »
Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber’s “All I Want For Christmas” duet debuted last night during the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. The best I can say about it is “feel good Christmas music” with a questionably appropriate music video.
Now, Mariah Carey is Mariah Carey. High notes and shaking her spray-tanned booty… More »
“Women are held to a different standard in all areas. Let’s work harder, produce more and better and get over it. I’m through whining about a liberal press that holds conservative women to a different standard because it doesn’t do any good to whine about it.”

Sometimes there’s just so much lady news that I have to do a weekend post in addition to my regular daily post. So for your enjoyment, here is “Today’s Lady News: The Weekend Edition.” Damn, I feel all fancy, like NPR!
Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin addressed soon-to-be Speaker of the House John… More »
“When I am assertive, I’m a bitch. When a man is assertive, he’s a boss. He [is] bossed up. No negative connotation behind ‘bossed up.’ But lots of negative connotation behind being a bitch. Donald Trump can say, ‘You’re fired.’ Let Martha Stewart run her company the same way and be the same way. [People… More »
Sometimes being a feminist means sticking up for someone you hate when she is being treated wrong. That feminist is me and the person I hate is Angelina from “Jersey Shore.” Angelina is the embodiment of every awful characteristic in a human being: duplicitous, slimy, back-stabbing. None of her “Jersey Shore” cast members like or… More »
Here’s a statistic that shouldn’t sit right with anyone: Over 73 percent of people in a study by the Havens, a sexual assault referral center in the U.K., believe the victim should “take responsibility” for getting raped if they’ve already performed another sexual act on the rapist. Raped? Well, you’d already given him a hand… More »
It’s 2009, bitches, and women are kicking ass and taking names. We’re outpacing men in colleges, running our own companies, and buying our own homes. But there’s one area in which we girls are sorely lacking: sex scandals. Yes, sex scandals. Poor LeAnn Rimes is one of the only high-profile ladies who has been caught… More »
Apparently unaware that women of all ages have always enjoyed robust sex lives, The New York Observer introduces us to “cheetahs.” What’s a cheetah, you ask? They are 30-something single women — the younger nieces of the 40-something-and-up “cougars” — who are so desperate for sex and affection that they’ll prowl the bars, waiting to… More »
