Feminism Bludgeoned To Death In WTF Facebook Status Update

Let’s all hope this woman was kidding when she wrote on her Facebook status, “I don’t care how anti-feminest [sic] it sounds. i don’t think girls should be required to learn about politics. i’d rather clean my house than go vote.” She realizes she has the right to not vote, right? I think girls should be required to pass an IQ test before they’re allowed to use Facebook. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Your Facebooking Is Ruining The Economy, FYI

You think composing pithy Facebook status updates and slyly stalking your exes via the social networking site isn’t bothering anybody, right? Well, you’re wrong. Your Facebook usage is ruining the economy. Just ask Michael Fitzpatrick, an analyst at ConnectSolutions who discovered the huge toll Facebook has taken on our productivity and general will to live (am I right, guys?). According to Mr. Fitzpatrick, the average worker spends around seven minutes a day on Facebook (this number seems astronomically low to us). And if you multiply that times the roughly 48 million Internet-connected working people in the U.S., that’s around 336,000,000 wasted minutes per day, around the country. In the course of the day, that’s costing businesses $140 million, and annually, it adds up to $280 billion dollars in lost productivity. That’s a lot of widgets we’re not making while checking our status updates instead.

Well, at least we’re not hanging out on Myspace. That would truly be a waste of time. [TheFitzpatricks.net] Keep reading »

“Cathy” Is Alive And Well On Facebook And Twitter

Above, recently retired cartoon heroine Cathy. But the words are not hers (as penned by cartoonist Cathy Guisewite); no, they’re words I wrote on Twitter recently. You see, I am convinced that Cathy — over-the-top archetype of sad single gals in their 30s — is alive and well in the Facebook status updates and Twitter feeds of many gals like me. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Created A Fake Boyfriend On Facebook To Make My Ex Jealous”

I’m a 39 year-old woman and I broke up with my boyfriend of three months about two weeks ago. We broke up on bad terms; I had a hunch he was cheating because he suddenly, for no reason, hid everything on his Facebook page. I told him I didn’t trust him, and he basically said that we should just be friends. I was crushed and haven’t contacted him, but I knew he was still my friend on Facebook and would see my posts. So … I decided to invent a fake boyfriend. I created a fake Facebook identity, complete with fake friends and even a fake profile picture and then basically “friended” myself. Over the past week, the fake boyfriend posted things on my wall and asked me out on dates, all for the purpose of making my ex jealous! Then I changed my relationship status to “In a Relationship.” Well, my ex saw that and sent me a message saying if I was trying to hurt him, he didn’t really know me. Then he unfriended me.

I thought that if it looked like I had a boyfriend, it would seem like he didn’t mean that much to me. I wanted to hurt him, but now I feel even worse. I am totally ashamed that I would do something so petty and juvenile. How do I fix this situation? Should I just leave my ex alone and move on? Should I admit what I did and apologize? I’m really not a crazy person; I was just hurt and now I really regret behaving like a twelve year old! — Regretting Fake Facebook Status

From What We Can Tell, Tyler The Creator Is Kind Of Stupid

Waka Flocka Flame: Do y’all actually do any of the stuff y’all talk about in your lyrics?
Tyler the Creator: Well, I don’t rape chicks … I have punched a girl in the eye … Um … What else? I say a lot of s**t and it just depends . . . Sometimes it’s just ’cause s**t is funny.

That’s hip-hop darling Tyler the Creator on how hilarious it is to hit girls. Other gems from his interview with rapper Waka Flocka Flame in this month’s Interview magazine? Tyler explains that the band name Odd Future came from a time that dragons tried to kill him: “Well, we were at a skate park on just a regular skate day, and this dragon just came out of nowhere and tried to attack me, so we killed the dragon. That’s how we got the name.” Sure! More delicious excerpts after the jump: Keep reading »
