Mom cheating - homework

Moms these days.

In Paris, a 52 year-old mother-of-the-year named Caroline D. tried to help her 19 year-old daughter on the English portion of her high school baccalaureate exam by actually taking it for her. The whole thing.

Now that’s a cool mom. Keep reading »

sexy teacher

Principal Mark Slater of The Leys in Cambridge, a prestigious boarding school in the UK, has an idea popular with 14-year-old boys the world over: students should be taught sex education by porn stars.

Wait, what? Oh, he has his reasons! ”I wouldn’t rule it out — simply because of what they’ve done in their life — if I felt that person was going to put across good values and be a good influence,” Slater explained.

While we appreciate his accepting attitude, and understand that he feels that the students will learn a lot about the less glamorous and dangerous parts of the pornography industry, this suggestion is truly, laughably terrible.  As the porn star James Deen has put it, when he visits college campuses to lecture about safe sex, real life sex is nothing like porn sex: Keep reading »

Things I wish I knew in high school: my bra was a clandestine cheating machine. I wore those AAs every single day, but somehow its stealthy secrets eluded my wide-eyed naivety.

Alas, “education chiefs” (not sure exactly what those are) in northeast China have outsmarted adolescent girls yet again. They’re nipping our deceitful ways in the bud by banning high-tech, metal-bearing intimates from being worn during their competitive high school exams. Keep reading »

Who says sororities are all about boozing and boys?

On June 15, Delta Theta Sorority Inc. will open an elementary school, the Cynthia M.A. Butler-McIntyre Campus in the remote Haitian village of Chérette. Since Chérette is located about 96 miles from the Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, children there do not have access to a proper education or a reliable source of clean water. To help combat this problem, the sorority teamed up with Water & Education International (WEI), which will will manage and run the school through its WEI School Project, while Delta Theta Sorority will provide funds through its Delta Research & Educational Foundation.

Earlier this month, the world met Susan Patton, a 1977 graduate of Princeton University, authoress of the world’s snobbiest letter to the editor of The Daily Princetonian. Its utterly-sincere advice that female undergrads marry fellow Princetonians because they’ll never find men as intelligent anywhere else in the world — followed by the news that Patton had recently divorced and blamed her husband for attending a no-name college — made her an instant Internet villainess.

It also got her invited back to speak to Princeton last week, where she shared more of her dating tips, including: “A woman looking for a husband in her 30s gives off total desperation.” Such spinster harridans are absolute “man repellent,” she warned. Keep reading »

Last week, the world met Susan A. Patton, Princeton grad of ’77, whose uber-snobbish letter to the editor of the Daily Princetonian was heard ’round the globe. Patton’s screed, penned to “the daughters I never had,” warned the young ladies of Princeton that they should find their husbands now, in college, because men in the rest of the world are morons. You can read the whole ridiculous shitshow here, including the part where Patton kvelled about how her son, a Princeton student (of course), would be quite a catch.

This week, much to her childrens’ consternation, Princeton Mom is still talking. Keep reading »

Princeton graduates, in my experience, have been the most insufferable bunch of Ivy League braggadocios to ever walk this Earth. People I know who went to Yale, Harvard or Columbia don’t need to advertise it. But if someone went to Princeton, just like if someone is a vegan, THEY WILL TELL YOU.

Susan A. Patton, Princeton grad of ’77, does nothing to diminish this stereotype. In her laughably snobbish, elitist letter to the editor in the Daily Princetonian, “Advice For The Young Women Of Princeton: The Daughters I Never Had,” she advises female undergraduates to get their M.R.S. degree now now amongst the Princeton class, lest they be stuck marrying some nosepicking boogereater who went to NYU, or, god forbid, a state school Keep reading »

Two gunman murdered a teacher who taught at an all-girls elementary school in Pakistan this week in a drive-by shooting. Shahnaz Nazli was killed just 200 meters from where she taught, no doubt because she dared to educate girls, according to The Daily Beast. Her killing is the most recent tragedy in the battle for women’s education in Pakistan, and it has triggered an online petition by the UN Special Envoy For Global Education. Keep reading »

  • This is awesome: Australian cartoonist Gavin Aung Than has created a cartoon depicting the story of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she’s a vocal activist on behalf of girls’ education. It’s short and sweet, but terrifying and touching. You can read the full cartoon on his web site, Zen Pencils.  [Clutch Magazine]

Middle school is rough on all of us. It’s especially rough when the administration at your middle school blames you for the sexual harassment you’re getting because of the size of your boobs. And it’s downright hellish when said administration suggests to your mother that a breast reduction might help. Keep reading »
