Head, Meet Desk: Fox Nation Illustrates Transgender Healthcare Story With Photo From “Mrs. Doubtfire”

In this unpredictable and ever-changing world we live in, at least we can always count on Fox News to provide a consistent stream of ignorance. The latest example comes from Fox Nation, a “news” website that chose to illustrate a story about transgender healthcare with a photo of Robin Williams from the movie “Mrs. Doubtfire.” Because, obviously, every serious trans issue can totally be summed up by a male comedian in a dress putting out a fire on his fake boobs. Sigh. After sparking outrage and petitions to remove it, the ridiculous movie shot has been replaced by a generic stock photo. And just in case anyone was misled by Fox’s story, Village Voice blogger Alan Scherstuhl explains, “For the record, the number of transgender Americans asking insurance to cover boobfires each year is minuscule.” [Village VoiceBasic Rights Oregon]

Fantastic Mr. Fox

America, we have a fox obesity problem. And when you feed your pet foxes marshmallows, you’re not helping the cause. Okay, kidding, this fox was an orphan rescued as a baby, and he gets a marshmallow treat once a year on the anniversary of his adoption. Watch this little guy bury some of the marshmallows for later.

Who’s been called in as “experts” on cable news to discuss the current debate over birth control? More men than women, that’s who. Across all the networks, 91 men appeared to talk about the birth control debate, while only 55 women appeared on-air. The greatest disparity was at the Fox stations, but the “liberal”-leaning network of MSNBC didn’t do much better. When the debate primarily affects women’s lives — in this case, their very bodies — more female voices need to be heard. Shame on these networks for allowing guys, whatever their opinion, a greater voice in the debate.  [Think Progress]

Finally, New Episodes Of “Glee,” “New Girl” & “Raising Hope” Return

Watch Video

Hi, did you have plans for this evening? I did, but then I canceled them because A) it’s pouring rain, B) it’s freezing out, and C) Fox is airing new episodes of “Glee,” “New Girl,” and “Raising Hope” tonight. So I’m making excuses and going home to sit around in my undies, paint my nails, and watching the boob tube like the rockstar that I am.  Keep reading »
