Would The “Beer Summit” Had Happened If Women Were Involved?

The whole nation got pretty excited yesterday for Obama’s beer summit with Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard scholar, and Sgt. James Crowley, the Cambridge police officer who arrested him. But I couldn’t help but wonder if it had been women involved instead of two men, if the nicey-nice photo op and beer summit chat would have ever happened.

I’m not asking if Hillary had been elected president would the beer summit still have happened. (Although I doubt it, just because beer doesn’t seem her style.) I’m referring to the idea of a beer summit among women—sitting around a table, disagreeing, drinking beers, shooting the breeze, talking things over, walking away from both the initial ugly confrontation and the ensuing awkwardness possibly as friends.

Gina Carano Is The Female Face Of Mixed Martial Arts

Some girls sleep with teddy bears. Some girls like to watch mixed martial arts fighting. I would be the latter. What’s MMA? A full contact sport that’s a mix of boxing, wrestling, and martial arts. It’s bloody, it’s hardcore, and it’s one of the most popular sports in the country. You may have seen guys duking it out in cage fights, but did you know that women are getting into the MMA mix, too? Now, Gina Carano, a 27-year-old Texan and daughter of a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, is fast becoming the first lady of the sport. Taking other chicks out with a rear naked choke, big punches, and high kicks, Carano is the girl next door that you do not want to mess with. On August 15, she’ll fight the biggest match of her career, when she takes on Cristiane Santos in “Carano vs. Cyborg.” “If you’re gonna have an addiction,” she says, “it might as well be punching people in the face for a living.” Keep reading »

Man-Up: How Men Have Made Me Argue Differently

There have been countless books, situation comedies, songs, and even college courses dedicated to the emotional and psychological differences between men and women. By now, it’s even possible that the similarities between men and women are teetering dangerously on the edge of indicating we’re two completely different species all together. We have completely different outlooks on sex, cars, kids, taking out the garbage, food, clothes, driving, directions, dogs, shoes, money—you name it. But lately, I feel like I have made a sneaky sort of discovery that laughs in the face of Men Are from Mars, Women Are From Venus; male behavior can rub off on women, and it might even improve us.

    Even Prehistoric Men Fought Over Women

    Back in prehistoric times, women were scarce, so men used to fight their rivals and capture the ladies. Researchers studied 34 skeletons found in a mass grave in southwest Germany, and among all of the skeletons in the grave, none of them were local women. How can they tell where people are from if they can’t hear their accents or see their clothes, and only have bones to go on, you may ask? They study skeletons’ teeth and analyze the strontium, carbon, and oxygen isotopes, which can suggest geological origin and diet. According to the scientists, this is the first evidence suggesting men fought over mates in prehistoric times. [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »

    The Good Fight

    A new study from Lehigh University found that it doesn’t matter how often mothers argue with their toddlers — like so much in life, quality is more important than quantity. So, what makes a “quality” argument? Both people justifying their opinions and then reaching a compromise without anyone insisting on their particular point of view without explaining it, teasing, or engaging in other negative behavior. This is good to remember when fighting with people who may no longer be toddlers but still act like them. [NLM] Keep reading »

    Go Ahead, Yell At Him

    If you’re pissed at your boyfriend, stop sulking and say something…or you might die. Preliminary results from a University of Michigan study show that couples in which both spouses suppress their anger at the other when unfairly attacked are twice as likely to die earlier than couples who were more communicative about their anger. So, if it really annoys you when he leaves his dirty, sweaty socks on the floor or doesn’t put a new roll of TP in the bathroom, speak up now or risk dying young. [Newswise] Keep reading »
