Hey, You! Pee On A Stick Before You Drink That Beer!

  • A Republican (obviously) politician in Alaska wants the state to pay for pregnancy tests in restaurants and bars so women can find out if they are pregnant before drinking. You will be shocked, shocked to know State Senator Pete Kelly opposes abortion and doesn’t want to increase access to contraception because it’s only for women “who don’t want to act responsibly.” Using taxpayer money to put millions of pee-sticks in every establishment that sells alcohol in the state? Responsible. Dudebro literally wants Alaska to become a urination-focused police state where all women are considered to be possible incubators for a fetus. Good luck with that!

Life Dream Status: Red Robin Debuts Wine Milkshakes

Red Robin will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the most affordable “fine dining” establishment in the suburb a few miles from my small town high school, which made it the go-to place to celebrate birthdays, volleyball wins, SAT scores, and System of a Down CD releases. I spent many late nights there with friends, eating bottomless steak fries and chicken Caesar wraps while discussing boys who would never love us back. So many of my fondest teenage memories are set in a Red Robin booth.

Wall Street Journal Columnist James Taranto Compares Campus Sexual Assault To Drunk Driving

Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto is pretty much that douchey frat boy who you never invite to a party, but somehow ends up there anyway , and you wish he would just go somewhere far, far away so you never had to think about all the obnoxious things he’s said. Remember him? He called the military’s effort to eradicate sexual assault a “war on male sexuality.” He’s tweeted that he hoped the young women whose boyfriends died saving them during the Aurora, Colorado, shooting were “worthy of the sacrifice.”  So it should come as no surprise to you that he is blaming rape victims for drinking.  Keep reading »
