Men will rape us no matter, apparently! So if won’t don’t want to get sexually assaulted, us ladies have to “give up over drinking [sic].”

This is according to a facepalm-y new column in Southern Methodist University The Daily Campus newspaper by someone named Kirby Wiley.   ”In order to prevent future victims, viewers need to know the other side of things,” Wiley writes.   The other side of things, in case you’re not picking up what I’m putting down, is that drunk women are deserving of some of the blame here.

Oh hell to the no.

Life Dream Status: I Joined The Best Online Wine Club

As previously noted time and time again, I am a wine enthusiast. (Wino, if you’re nasty.) But I’ve recently taken my enthusiasm to a whole other level by becoming a member of Tasting Room by LOT18, an online wine club that tailors each boozy delivery to your specific palate.

Now, normally, I’m pretty low-maintenance about my wine. I’ve got four wine shops within spitting distance of my apartment, so picking up a bottle of red to go with dinner is never a hassle. As much as I love and appreciate wine, and am, in theory, always eager to try new varietals, I find myself sticking to the same handful of wines when I go to the store. The enticing thing to me about joining a wine club is the surprise. But the surprise factor is also what has kept me from joining wine clubs in the past — what if I hate the selection I’m sent? Given how expensive wine clubs tend to be — and their reputation for shilling mediocre vino — it’s never seemed worth the risk. Keep reading »

Meet Shelby Herring, Brutally Honest & Drunk Ole Miss Student

I Wouldn't Have School Spirit Without A Couple Vodka Waters

Like Ole Miss student Shelby Herring, we never had much school spirit.

But unlike Shelby Herring, we never got our school spirit by day drinking and then drunkenly blathered on camera, thus becoming the Internet’s newest viral video star. In between answering important questions about what’s a “hotty totty” and her favorite quarterbacks, Miss Herring chugs champagne, drops her mike, and shares bits of gold like, “Ole Miss, we may have lower IQs, I have a higher IQ than most people, no, that’s a lie. We have fun and we don’t ever miss a party!” Um, okay.

She is strangely endearing, if not the model Ole Miss student. And hey, what is Shelby’s friend doing this whole time?! Girl, with your friends start drunkenly blathering on camera, that’s when you pull them away. [AdWeek, Twitter.com/ShelbyClaireH]
