A sexist asshat German mayor has designated the “more challenging” parking spaces in the municipal garage for male drivers, because parking a car is so haaaard for us little-wittle-ladies. The mayor, Gallus Strobel, has decreed that certain parking spaces will be designated with a male or female symbol to show who is permitted to park in each spot. Strobel told a German newspaper, “Men are, as a rule, a little better at such challengers.” Well then! He sounds like such a lovely man to work for. According to Sweden’s The Local, the women’s 12 spaces are wider, more well-lit, farther away from pillars and closer to the exit.

Wait. Hold up. No manicures? No shoes? No pictures of fuzzy kittens and bunnies? What kind of women’s parking spaces are these?! [Female First UKThe Local DE]

Verbal Diarrhea From A Sexist Jerk

Recently fired from MSNBC due to his blatant racism, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan whipped out another sexist comment during an episode of “The McLaughlin Group” on Sunday, saying that he hopes a female will not be elected president during his lifetime. Roll eyes.

With over 20 countries boasting female leaders, and Hillary Clinton having run for the American presidency in 2008, I can see Mr. Buchanan being very disappointed in the near future. Or, at least, so I hope. [Think Progress]

Update: 4p.m. Well, that was quick. State Senator Mary Marty Golden’s website has canceled the event. I guess you’ll have to learn your feminine wiles elsewhere. [New York Observer]

Please tell me this is a joke. This is a joke, right?

The office of a Republican politician in Brooklyn, New York, will be offering a class for women in his district about “Posture, Deportment, and Feminine Presence.” Ostensibly this is a career development event about etiquette, but the packaging is really, really WTF. Keep reading »

Strip clubs in the fair city of Houston, Texas, will soon be hit with an interesting new tax: a $5-per-visitor tax which will go towards paying for a backlog of the city’s 6,000 rape kits. The Houston City Council passed an ordinance on Wednesday which will require almost 30 gentleman’s clubs to fork over the funds, which will then be used to pay for analyzing DNA evidence collected from rape victims.

Science: It's A Girl Thing

Women hold less than 25 percent of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) jobs within the field, and are less likely than males to work in a STEM occupation. But while I understand that there is a severe lack of women within the science field, this PSA out of the European Union of what my days would be like as a female scientist looks anything but appealing.

Pervy New Dress Code
  • A woman claims she was fired from O’Hara’s, a bar near UCLA, for complaining about a new dress code for women that required wait staff to wear short, plaid school girl skirts  and place fans around the restaurant to blow their skirts up! Ew. Creepy. The woman wrote a letter to her boss registering her complaint, then quickly saw her hours reduced before being fired three days later. That fan thing is straight-up sexual harassment: indefensible in any workplace.
