Frisky Q&A: Dan Savage Talks About “Savage U,” And The Prevalence Of Birth Control Use And Slut-Shaming On College Campuses

Tonight at 11 p.m. is the premiere of MTV’s “Savage U,” the half-hour series in which Dan Savage, sex advice columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, travels to 12 colleges and universities across the country and talks to young folks about sex and relationships. Given his experience — he’s been doling out straight-forward advice for 20 years — and hilariously honest approach, “Savage U” is sure to have a refreshing, entertaining, and most of all important impact on the way mainstream television addresses sex and dating. I was lucky enough to talk to Dan about the show, what most surprised him about the sex lives of college students, and whether he thinks he’ll still be dishing it out in another 20 years. Check out our Q&A after the jump! Keep reading »

Sometimes I think Rick Santorum is just a really elaborate Onion spoof. There is no better evidence of this theory than what Jezebel is referring to as Pink Ballgate. Yesterday, at a campaign event at a Wisconsin bowling alley, Santorum was heard advising a young man not to use a pink bowling ball when it was his turn. Especially not on camera. (Why? Because pink bowling balls cause gayness?) A Reuters reporter overheard Santorum tell the boy, ”You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera.” He also reportedly added, “Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” I mean, c’mon. I know that Santorum isn’t a made-up politician designed to point out the ridiculousness of the extreme right; I know he’s a real man with a somewhat real shot at the nomination, but I just can’t handle quotes like this. If the facepalming continues, I am going to have welts. [Raw Story, Jezebel]

Senator Rick Santorum — long known for his insightful analyses of same-sex marriage (a mere gateway, as he alluded, to human-dog couples) and more recently for his repudiation of education — proclaimed in 1994 that before single mothers continued on their heedless quest to destroy the “fabric of the country,” they needed a swift “kick in the butt.”

I was a single mom, living separately from my child’s father or any other adult, until my son was four. I worked full-time in order to support myself and my child and, during that time, there were many things I needed: child care that I could both trust and afford, health insurance (I worked freelance and was responsible for paying for own medical care), and the occasional night off. Topping that list, I now realize, should have been a kick in the butt.

Frankly, I’m flattered that a busy family man of Santorum’s stature would be willing to take time out of his day to spur me on, literally, as a responsible cowboy would his trusty (but, face it, lazy) horse. Keep reading »
