Spike Calls Salma Hayek & Liv Tyler “Butterbodies”

We’re pretty used to men’s magazines and media outlets celebrating the world’s most beautiful women — from Maxim’s Hot 100 to AskMen.com’s upcoming Top 99 Most Desirable Women — but Spike.com has decided to go with a much more negative approach. In “The Top 7 Butterbodies,” everyone from Mandy Moore to America Ferrera to Salma…

Are Men Turning Into Jerks?

According to Details, decades of feminism and political correctness have turned 21st century guys into total pigs. Because they’ve been forced to play Mr. Nice Guy and suppress their baser, manlier instincts for years, today’s men are starting to revert back to some of their less politically correct, more misogynist ways. Take, for example, “Dave”:…

Sexist Advertising Alert: Does This Suit Look Good With The Model I Just Murdered?

Thanks to Feministe for pointing out 2008’s Most Sexist Advertisement — a print ad for Duncan Quinn suits which features a nicely dressed gentleman strangling a barely clothed model! Because nothing says debonair like chokin’ a bitch.

Is All The Attention Being Paid To Sarah Palin’s $150,000 Wardrobe Sexist?

If I had a dollar for every time somebody used the words “sexism” or “sexist” during this election, I’d have enough money to go shopping. Not shopping at Neiman Marcus, mind you, but shopping at, say, French Connection. When it was revealed the McCain campaign had given Governor Sarah Palin a $150,000 clothing allowance so…

Sarah Palin: The Most Sexist Of Them All

This weekend, Sarah Palin finally made her much anticipated appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, showing up in two skits written just for her. To tell you the truth, it seemed like the show was actually laughing at Palin rather than with her — the second skit, featuring Amy Poehler rapping, was seriously pretty…insulting. Additionally, the…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Sarah Palin & Her VPILFishness

There’s been ado about the complete and utter MILF-ish/VPILF-ish-ness of Sarah Palin. Yesterday, I was sitting and eating lunch next to a table of men, all in their 40’s, who were discussing Palin’s hotness, how she would be sexier with her hair down, and that her critics just think she’s “too pretty”. All that got…

Sexism Still Pays Off For Men

Growing up, my mom and dad shared the responsibility of bringing home the bacon…well, the proverbial bacon — we’re Jewish. Anyway, my mom was a realtor and good at her job, but I’ll never forget her main competitor. His wife didn’t work and he was a jerk, the kind of guy who used too much…

Free Sarah Palin! CNN’s Campbell Brown Grows A Pair On Behalf Of The Media

CNN’s Campbell Brown totally tore the McCain camp a new you-know-what for banning reporters from questioning Sarah Palin while she was in New York yesterday meeting with world leaders at the United Nations. Don’t have the patience to watch the vid? Transcript after the jump…

The Sexism Card: Is Sarah Palin Really A Victim Or Is She Bluffing?

We all know sexism is alive and well in America. Hollywood’s seemingly endless celebration of the chubby, schlubby, slacker dude is sexist as hell, given that chubby, schlubby, slacker girls get nowhere in Tinseltown, least of all the big screen. And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I…

How Do We Still Love You, Don Draper?

The same week John Edwards admitted to cheating on his wife with Rielle Hunter, Mad Men’s Don Draper lost his (short) battle NOT to cheat on his wife. The comparisons are easy, if shallow — both dashing, charming, well-manicured, with wives that ooze kindness, morality, loyalty, and selfless struggle. While John Edwards does not have…

Sign Of The Times: Women At Work

“Men at Work” signs are even more outdated then Men At Work’s (the band) hits. Okay, we still get down to their 80’s party tunes, but the biased signs are finally out in Atlanta! It’s all thanks to Cynthia Good, one of the founding editors of PINK and Atlanta Woman magazines. Angered that women working…

Hillary Clinton & Sexism In The Media

Now that the Presidential primary race is over and the general election is underway, members of the media are looking back on their coverage of Hillary Clinton and trying to decide if they were sexist or not. Clark Hoyt, a writer for The New York Times takes his own employer to task and places a…

Top Five T-Shirts That Will Not Get You Laid, Fellas

I am amazed by the rise of the slogan t-shirt. You know, “Everybody Loves An Italian Girl”, “Barack ‘N’ Roll”, “More Cowbell”, “What Would Jesus Do”…I blame Urban Outfitters. But anyway, the most annoying aspect of this clothing phenomenon is that it’s given people the false impression that it’s okay to wear their stupidity, sexist…

Frisky Quote Of The Day: Faye Dunaway

“I am furious that [producers] think I’m too old to play the love interest of guys like Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. Why should I play sisters and mothers while guys like Jack and Clint, who are older than me, have on-screen lovers half their age?” — Faye Dunaway…

Poll: Is Grand Theft Auto IV Super Duper Offensive?

Grand Theft Auto IV came out on Tuesday and made bajillions of dollars in sales. However, some people are up in arms because the video game allows you to have sex with prostitutes and then kill them afterwards. Boinkology has an excellent post up about the line between video game fantasy and real, live misogyny.

Sexist Ad Hangover

You know what makes me want to drink away my sorrows? Rabidly sexist and misogynistic ads for Belvedere Vodka in my subway station. One more, after the jump.

That Was Then, This Is NOW

With power women dominating the workplace, being a lady lately means balancing in more than high heels. In America, we have the WAC’s and WOW’s, who went to work in WWII, to thank profusely for truly being on the front lines for us. Although Rosie the Riveter gave womanhood a strong image, the…

Hillary Heckler Harkens Back To 1955

At a recent campaign stop in New Hampshire a man heckled Senator Hillary Clinton saying, “Iron my shirt! Iron my shirt!” We love it when it’s hard to tell the difference between real life sexist pigs and satirical ones! Also, we’re pretty sure Clinton has someone who irons her shirts — hopefully a…
