Gretchen Carlson Jokingly Walks Off “Fox & Friends” After Sexist Comment

Today's Lady News photo
  • “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson walked off the set after her co-hosts made sexist comments regarding the U.S. Navy Band now including women. When Brian Kilmeade said, “Women are everywere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control,” Gretchen stormed off-camera — albeit with a smile on her face. Good start, Gretchen. But instead of doing this as a joke, we need to get you peacing out for real. [Think Progress]
  • As punishment for speaking out about the anti-abortion “superbill” ekeing its way through Michigan legislature, the male Republican House leader silenced female reps from speaking about the bill. [Think Progress]

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.

Cat Calling Ain't Cool!

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]

I am a lifelong, unabashed, unapologetic Matchbox 20 superfan. I own all their albums. They were the first band I ever saw in concert. I’ve even paid money just to hear the lead singer Rob Thomas to speak on a panel about music. I will defend his talented songwriting skills to the death. You want to take this outside, bitch? Because I will fight you. I will fight you in an alley. (Winona understands.) I’m beyond pumped for their new album and was super-excited when Amelia IMed me their new music lyric video, “She’s So Mean.”

So I was beyond not pumped when I actually watched the “She’s So Mean” video and my overwhelming emotion was “Ew.” Keep reading »

Republican Rep.’s Spokesman: “Hurl Some Acid” On Female Democratic Senators

Today's Lady News photo
  • The campaign spokesperson for Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY), a guy named Jay Townsend, wrote a Facebook message about senators who support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act but paid their male staffers more than their female staffers.  Townsend wrote, “Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector.” It never fails to shock me how dumb people in politics can be when it comes to writing Facebook comments.

A new study published in the journal Psychological Science found that women are objectified at much higher rates than men. That sound you just heard was every woman in the world yelling, “Well, duh!” but still, this is a pretty interesting development, because as much as we can see and feel the effects of sexual objectification in our society and in our personal experience, it’s always been a difficult phenomenon to measure. Here’s how the most recent study worked… Keep reading »
