Franchesca Ramsey Scandal Olivia Pope
"You're Olivia Pope"

Franchesca Ramsey (AKA Chescaleigh) from “Shit White Girls Say” has a new YouTube video out and this one is for the “Scandal” fans. It probably only makes sense if:

  1. You watch “Scandal” and YouTube makeup tutorials.
  2. You think Olivia and Harrison’s relationship is weird.
  3. The cadence of speech in Shonda Rimes’ scripts is getting to you.

All that being said, it’s hilarious: “You’re a fixer. That’s what you do. You fix things. And you’re going to fix your face because it’s half done and it looks weird.”  Bonus points for Creepy Jake at the end. [YouTube]

Responding To Jenna Marbles

A bit of background: YouTube star Jenna Marbles recently did a video called “Things I Don’t Understand About Girls: Sluts Edition” and it was fairly horrible. First of all, Jenna Marbles thinks that being a promiscuous “slut” is a bad thing.  Sluts, she says, are women who have “a lot of casual sex,” although she admits she can’t really define what “a lot” means because it’s different for every person. I’m sorry, every woman. The only people Jenna Marbles judges for having “a lot of casual sex” are women.

She admits the video is not supposed to be funny — and it’s not. In addition to being nasty towards other women, it comes off as bitter. (There’s this weird part about sluts who sleep with other girls’ boyfriends, because I guess I guess an insatiable sex drive stops you from having morals?) Mostly Jenna just repeated the kind of “sluts are the wooooorst” stuff that you imagine Rush Limbaugh says to his pals while they smoke cigars in a strip club. So it is a VERY welcome breath of fresh air to see Chescaleigh (AKA Franchesca Ramsey) did a response. Keep reading »

Cockblock The Vote!

If only women were voting in next week’s election, Barack Obama would win … which is why men need to stay home on Election Day for the good of America. Starring Franchesca Ramsey, Sara Benincasa and other funny ladies who leant themselves to this “Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell” skit, it’s the best case I’ve heard for keeping the polls progesterone-only.
