What is there to say, really, about a four-year-old girl wearing a padded bra and butt pads while she channels Dolly Parton on “Toddlers & Tiaras”? Her mother wore the same costume as a kid when she competed in pageants and obviously that’s why she thinks sexualizing her four-year-old is A-OK. Excuse me… READ MORE »

Something, dare I say, feminist happened over at Fox News yesterday! Anchorwoman Megyn Kelly schooled her guest, jerkface/conservative talk radio host Mike Gallagher, for calling her three months’ maternity leave a “racket” on his radio show. You know, maternity leave — that time a woman takes off work to recuperate after an 8… READ MORE »

Most would probably agree that the sight of a hot guy holding a baby in one of those hippie swaddle things is basically the hottest thing ever because it touches on two primal urges—the desire to f**k and the desire to procreate. I’m not saying all women want kids, but a glimpse of a hot… READ MORE »

In Norwalk, Ohio, Chrissy Houtz had a stranger take a picture of her while she was nursing her newborn son at the city pool, and they passed it around like a “wanted poster.” She was harassed and told to stop, but after speaking with Ken Leber, the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Superintendent, who promised to… READ MORE »

Snip away, San Francisco! A judge ruled yesterday that the city cannot vote on whether to ban circumcision on the ballot next election.

Labor already has a terrible reputation, so when Miranda Kerr said her natural, drug-free birth was so painful, she thought she was going to die, most people probably were not terribly surprised. And while I am sure it was intense (because duh), it does not do women any good to hear all the time how… READ MORE »

Oh, Texas.

A mother appeared before the Texas Medical Board last week to complain about an ER doctor at Huguley Memorial Medical Center who treated her five-year-old boy for a finger infection and wrote a prescription for her to “apply large paddle to bottom of child anytime he needs it.” What’s even more… READ MORE »

When Caylee Anthony disappeared in 2008, I followed the news coverage with a sick heart. I hugged my then-6-year-old daughter a little tighter and whispered multiple prayers of thanksgiving for her safety. Caylee’s story made me imagine what it would be like to have a child disappear, and those thoughts terrified me on a level… READ MORE »

Deadbeat dads should be stigmatized by society just like drunk drivers, UK Prime Minister David Cameron wrote in a Father’s Day article for the Telegraph newspaper. Cameron blasted what he called “runaway” fathers and said society should be “genuinely hostile” and make them feel the “full force of shame heaped upon them.” The prime minister… READ MORE »

A pole dancing class for toddlers offered at a dance studio in England is being attacked by critics who say it’s “promoting sexually precocious behavior” in young kids.

Saturday June 18 will be a creepy evening in the Dallas/Fort Worth area: it’s Daddy-Daughter Date Night at Chick-Fil-A.
