Did you know that Pinterest is killing feminism? Yup, that website that you were really batshit crazy about back in May but haven’t really touched since is the reason why feminism lies in a crumpled heap at your feet. At least according to Buzzfeed, anyway. But! Not so fast! It’s not just a website where people post pictures of impossibly difficult to make DIY home projects, expensive shoes, and sinful chocolate desserts that’s responsible for feminism’s impending demise. There’s a whole list of offending things that are shoving the knife deeper in feminism’s weak, arthritic back. Shall we go to the Googles? Keep reading »

NSFW: Hyundai Netherlands' "Upskirt" Commercial

Oh, Europeans. Here’s a new commercial from Hyundai Netherlands for their Sante Fe vehicle. The ad is creepily called “Upskirt” and definitely pushes the boundaries of what you can do to sell cars here in the United States. The premise is about as unoriginal as any other car commercial: sexy ladies swooning over a new car. But in this ad, it’s an ice cream-meltingly hot day, the ladies are sexily dampened with sweat and not wearing a bra under an opaque blouse (because we do that — right, ladies?).  Sex sells here too, but it’s oftentimes sold in innuendo or pun form. Hyundai Netherlands, however, goes whole (horny) hog with gratuitous hard nipples and a blowing-in-the-wind upskirt panties shot. Keep reading »

“I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”

– I don’t know why I am surprised that Keira Knightley outs herself as a loud-and-proud feminist in Vogue. I suppose it makes sense: girlfriend has had to squeeeeeeze herself into more than a few corsets in all those English period pieces. I’m fairly certain not being able to breathe will make anyone a feminist. [Vogue]

“… 80 percent of female actors are pretty strong, powerful women, and that’s a very hard relationship for men to have. Even today, in 2012, the guy is supposed to be in charge. I see it in every heterosexual relationship I know, the acquiescence of the female. When I observe people being coupled, I see too many compromises that I don’t know that I could make or would want to make.”

– There’s lots of interesting stuff in Melissa Leo‘s Q&A in The New York Times Magazine, but what was most interesting to me was the stuff she said about relationships. Melissa jokes — at least, I think she was joking — about how she always picks a gaffer on-set to be her imaginary boyfriend because that’s so much easier than being in a real relationship. I don’t 100 percent agree with her theory here because I know there are guys who love strong, powerful women and who are willing to make compromises — but maybe she was just speaking to the male-dominated microcosm of Hollywood.

Pink's Slutty Song

A Frisky reader sent me the lyric video for Pink’s new song “Slut Like Me” and asked what I think. To be honest, musically, I think it sucks. But I have a feeling he was asking what I really think about Pink owning the word “slut” and using it to describe herself — which I’m cool with in my own life. We have to be aware of the nuanced differences between how different people use “offensive words.” Those words can be powerful or harmful depending on who is using them and how. It’s totally different when I call myself a slut in a positive, pat-on-the-back way than it is when an angry man calls me a slut because I rejected him at a bar. (Or, you know, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut.”) “Slut Like Me” is no great piece of music, though. I wish it was worthy of the debate over women using the word “slut” that it is going to cause!  [YouTube]
