While I am empathetic to the plight of the CW’s morning show “Eye Opener,” which I did not know existed until I saw this clip, and their desperate need to drum up controversy and attention, their sexist stunt right on the heels of chitchatting about a sexist stunt is beyond idiotic. On Friday, two male and one female hosts were gabbing about Gretchen Carlson jokingly walking off the “Fox & Friends” set after her male co-host made a sexist remark. After a little bit of banter about how the male cohosts had better behave themselves, one of them introduces the show’s next segment about Barack Obama fundaraiser like this: “Is a dog campaigning for Obama? No, not Sarah Jessica Parker!” Hardy-har-har. (Also? People say she looks like a horse, not a dog.) Now go back into obscurity where you belong and learn some grownup humor. [Think Progress]
An open letter to the Michigan state reps who are offended by the word. Read More »
Vagina was big on Twitter last night, following the news that two Michigan state representatives (Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown) were barred from speaking on the floor of the State house after the dared use the word “vagina.” In response, the Twitter hashtag #VaginaMovieLines started trending, with everyone from yours truly to Martha Plimpton chiming in with their favorite movie lines adapted to include the word vagina. Sometimes, for shits and giggles, we do dramatic readings in the office (of celebrity gossip headlines or especially mean comments on posts) and we decided to film ourselves dramatically performing a bunch of vagina movie lines for your amusement. Watch above and then share your own lines with @TheFrisky on Twitter, using the hashtag #vaginamovielines.
You had me at, “I don’t take no orders from no woman.”
Meet Ihor Stetkewycz, the man of my dreams — a tree removal guy who pissed off Detroit-area residents when he dumped a pile of tree stumps on their street and sped off. But that’s not why we’re in love. Ihor is my boyfriend because of the deft way he handled his ABC News on-air interview, where he told the female reporter that “I don’t take no orders from no woman.” He then followed it up by stating several times that the neighbor that complained about his misdeed “must have been a woman and I don’t listen to no woman, I just tell ‘em to shut up.” Obviously, he’s kind of a prince among men.

You remember Chescaleigh from the “Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls” videos? Of course you do. She’s back, this time with a new video about street harassment in which she plays both the loser with no game “hssssss”-ing her on the street and the woman minding-her-own business who has to deal with his catcalls. “Here’s what I don’t understand,” she says. “Are these guys really so desperate, horny, and insecure about their penis size that they are willing to hit on anything? And I mean anything, because they don’t really seem to discriminate.” Yes, Chescaleigh, they really are. Clearly I need to tell you about the time I was catcalled last summer while wearing a fucking eyepatch. [YouTube]
