When It Comes To Gender Stereotyping, Pink Is Not The Problem

When It Comes To Gender Stereotyping, Pink Is Not The Problem

In his analysis of the problems (real and falsely perceived) with the “pink aisle,” MovieBob has some things to say about “The Hunger Games”—namely that it reinforces an outdated notion of male = good and female = bad by giving its heroine stereotypically masculine traits and the Capitol stereotypically feminine ones. Watch MovieBob explain why pink is not the problem on The Mary Sue…

No Princess Tea Parties Necessary!

We are obsessed with this brilliant commercial by toy company Goldie Blox, which aims to inspire and educate future female engineers. Their goal is to “disrupt the pink aisle,” as little girls are interested in lots of cool toys but primarily targeted with princess dresses and pop star dreams. The company’s creator, Debbie Sterling, is a Stanford engineering graduate disappointed with how few female classmates she had. Only 11 percent of engineers are female and Sterling believes that encouraging girls to be inventive at an early age with construction toys that come from “a female perspective” is a step in the right direction. The video takes the notoriously sexist “Girls” by the Beastie Boys and revamps it as something of a feminist anthem as the girls in the commercial get creative with household items — and those silly feather boas and tea sets they’re “supposed” to be sashaying around in. Anyone else want to adopt these three? [GoldieBlox]

  • Kanye’s full drunken rant from the night of his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs was leaked yesterday, and apparently Kanye had a few unsavory things to say about Pink. Luckily, Pink responded ever so gracefully, tweeting, “Oh come on y’all… If people secretly recorded me and all the shit I talk…. It’s all good. All love. And we all still here. Peace please,” to her offended fans. [Popdust]

President Obama sees himself in Trayvon and identifies with him. This is a beautiful tribute to our boy.” Tears. Keep reading »

  • Mark Ruffalo, Pink, and Josh Gad  — who you might recognize from Broadway’s “The Book Of Mormon” — are all sex addicts in a new, actually-looks-good-even-though-Gwyneth-Paltrow-is-in-it dramedy called “Thanks For Sharing.” It will be pretty hard (no pun intended) to top “Shame” on the big screen sex addiction front, but I’ll give sexypants Ruffalo a shot!

Feather Hair Extensions

Well, well, well! If it isn’t Pink (P!nk? I refuse), looking decidedly unlike her usual self with a new set of hair extensions on one side and a buzz cut on the other. A celeb sporting a new weave is rarely newsworthy (they just seem to, like, accumulate more hair every day), but this may very well be the first time we’ve seen Pink without her trademark shorn ‘do. I think she looks great — and, strangely enough, a lot like Busy Philipps-gone-bad. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

“I’m a reformed slut. [Using the word] is my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I’ve always had an issue with, ‘OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.’”

– Pink tells Glamour magazine why she proudly refers to herself as a slut (well, currently in the 7th year of her relationship with Cary Hart, she now calls herself a “reformed slut”). She goes on to mention one unexpected guy who made an appearance in her romantic past: NSYNC’s Joey Fatone! ”He took me to Friendly’s on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad’s permission!” This story is bringing me a ridiculous amount of joy. Rock on, Pink. [Us Weekly]

“I was lawyering the shit out of the situation. I was like, ‘You know what? Will you just come here and fuck me?’ And he was like, ‘Wha-wha-what?’ I was like, ‘Yeah! I’m done fighting. Just come here and fuck me — that’s all this is about.’ He was like, ‘OK!’”

--Pink, on how she ended a six-hour fight with husband Carey Hart by changing her mind and opting for sex instead. She later goes on to explain in her Advocate interview that the fighting happens because”It’s usually that you feel vulnerable, that you feel powerless, that you feel out of control, that you feel scared,” she explains. “I’m a pit bull, but I’m a toothless pit bull. I will totally attack, but I just really wanted you to rub my tummy. Why when I bite you do you not understand that I just want you to rub my tummy?” [The Advocate]

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]
