Stephen Colbert Responds To #CancelColbert By Shutting Down The Ching Chong Ding Dong Foundation For Sensitivity To Orientals Or Whatever

Stephen Stands His Ground

Stephen Colbert has finally responded to the hashtag #CancelColbert, which was trending last week on Twitter. In true “Colbert Report” fashion, he did it in character as a pompous blowhard conservative who “doesn’t see race.” A quick recap for those of you who were down a hole all weekend: in response to a news segment about racism towards Native Americans, someone from the Comedy Central Twitter account tweeted a joke about Asians referencing an older skit from a prior Colbert show about racism. Some people on Twitter freaked out over the perceived racist slight and created the hashtag #CancelColbert, which eventually started trending. Although at least from what I could see, many folks tweeting it were saying not to cancel “Colbert.”

On last night’s show in a segment called “Who’s Attacking Me Now?”, Stephen Colbert responded to #CancelColbert … or, as he put it, “the dark forces trying to silence my message.” Keep reading »

Lily Allen Responds To Allegations Of Racism Against Black Women In Her “Hard Out Here” Video

Lily Allen is back with a new music video
It's Hard Out Here For A Bitch!

This week, Lily Allen debuted the video for her new song “Hard Out Here,” to extremely mixed reactions. Some, like our own Rachel, saw her song about pop music’s policing of women’s bodies and double standards about sexuality as a “feminist anthem.”  Others are deeply offended by her use of mostly women of color backup dancers, arguing that satire is not an excuse for using their bodies in disrespectful ways.  Keep reading »

A Glimpse Inside The Not-So-Perfect World Of Barbie And Ken

“In The Doll House,” a new photo series by Dina Goldstein, gives us a peek inside Barbie’s Dreamhouse, where things are not always as they seem:

‘In the doll house’ examines the less than perfect life of B and K. B is a super doll, the most successful doll in the world. Her partner K is grappling with his sexuality and finds himself in a loveless marriage. He struggles with his position in the household and faces his lack of authenticity.

After the jump, check out a couple more snaps from the series, which is currently on display at the Kimoto Gallery in Vancouver, BC. [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

The "Betches" Are Professional Mean Girls

Please meet “betches” Jordana Abraham, Samantha Fishbein and Aleen Kuperman. This trio of childhood friends who coined the term “betch” while they were attending Cornell together go by the mottos: “If you don’t have anything mean to say, don’t say it at all” and “Don’t be easy, don’t be ugly, don’t be poor.”

Some more of their inspirational advice has included: “You should learn to be a girl who looks out for herself first and does not allow others to take advantage of her. Ideally, you should be doing the advantage-taking” and “It’s important to realize that as a woman, you have the special privilege of not needing to work as hard as men do — in the general sense — unless you want to.”

Preach, betches!   Keep reading »

As we all learned last year, Chick-fil-A’s secret seasoning blend includes a heaping spoonful of homophobia and a generous slathering of bigotry. In response, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, a comedy group that parodies conservative “family values” organizations, created this fake coupon offering a free chicken sandwich to anyone who renounced their homosexuality. It’s a hilarious piece of satire on its own, with fine print stipulations like, “Offer only applies to persons currently choosing to be gay,” but when the guys from the Chick-fil-A Foundation decided to put their bogus coupon to the test, something really crazy happened: Chick-fil-A redeemed it. After the jump, check out a video of the encounter… Keep reading »

If you’ve yet to hear of the brothers Brant, you are very fortunate. You are also not a subscriber and/or reader of Vanity Fair, where they were profiled back in September. That story’s title says it all: “Little Lord Flauntleroys.” Peter, 18, and Harry, 15, are the split-manifestation antichrist sons of publishing mogul Peter Brant Sr. and supermodel Stephanie Seymour (and yes, you may recognize Peter from that ill-advised beachside photo in which he is both groping and smooching his mother on the lips), and frankly they are beyond words. They’re kind of like the gay Hilton sisters except worse in that they’re both fucking terrible (Nicky is, after all, pretty inoffensive), but unlike the Hilton sisters they are a) “high society” and b) one of them Tweeted about assassinating the president. Seriously. Alas, the Brant brothers have reached their zeitgeist saturation point: a satirical Tumblr now exists in their name. Keep reading »

If Pinterest Was Real
A cautionary poem. Read More »

I love Pinterest, but certain recipes and DIYs make me a little suspicious. Crockpot tiramisu? Really? Five-minute French tip manicure? Riiiiiight. My Pinterest side eye has been hilariously validated by a writer named Sonja Foust, also known as the “Pintester.” For the past six months, Foust has been testing recipes, crafts, and style tips she finds on Pinterest and writing up hilariously honest reviews of the process and end results. Spoiler alert: her attempts usually don’t turn out anything like the gleaming, flawless pictures you see on Pinterest (the picture above is her attempt at “Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake”). From nail art to wine jello shots, she’s trying everything, unabashedly failing, and bringing some much needed humor into the frighteningly perfect world of Pinterest. Sonja, we raise our mason jar of slightly disappointing homemade sangria to you! [Via Laughing Squid]

10 Ways To Stuff Yourself & Stay Sexy Over Thanksgiving

Get laid!
Eight ways to get laid this Thanksgiving! Read More »

Of all the many splendored joys associated with the holiday season, having a free pass to stuff your face may be the best. And of all the lip-smacking, gravy-smothered, “have another piece of that, whatever it is” holidays we have to look forward to, the upcoming Thanksgiving feast-ivities are both the kick-off and the kicker. Unfortunately, all those super-sized portions usually come with an equally heaping helping of expanding thighs, widening waistlines and rumps that go straight-up rogue.

Some people deal with their increase of junk in the trunk by wholeheartedly accepting they’ll put on a handful of poundage over the holiday. These people also own stretch pants and hooded sweaters they affectionately refer to as their “eating clothes.” Then there are those who make a preemptive strike against the impending avalanche of calories by subsisting on celery in between yoga-lates classes weeks before the big day.

But what of the middle way? The way that says you can have your cake (hell, the whole f**king thing) and eat it too and remain attractive to your preferred sexual partner? Here are 10 Ways to Stuff Yourself During The Holidays and Still Stay Sexy! Keep reading »
