D.L. Hughley On Black Women: “Angry All The Time”

Today's Lady News photo
  • Actor D.L. Hughley said some offensive shit on NPR about women, especially black women, in a recent interview. Regarding women, he criticized our ability to reason and said, “If a man can have a face only a mother can love, then women can have personalities only fathers can love.” Of black women in particular, he said they are “angry all the time” and ”I’ve never met an angrier group of people.” BRAIN. EXPLODES. Later on in the interview, he says he “respects” black women, which is so unapparent in the rest of what he says. [NPR via Naturally Moi] Keep reading »

Today In UGH: Adam Carolla Joins Fox News

Adam Carolla

The former “Man Show” host Adam Carolla has been all too happy to be a professional douche. That time he said women are not as funny as men? The time he asked, “When did we start giving a shit about [transgender] people?” So … SURPRISE! … now Carolla has joined Fox News as a commentator. He’ll be chumming it up with Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor” and appear on other shows occasionally as well.

The last thing that network needs is another dude who tries to pass off bigotry as “humor.” I understand that Carolla has some opinions that might be considered “liberal,” but I sure as shit do not consider a homophobic sexist qualified to represent me or most other liberals I know. Another reason not to watch this trash (although, in fairness, the only time I watch any Fox News is when my nearly-70-year-old suburban Republican father puts it on when I go visit — so, enjoy Dad!). [NYMag.com] [Photo: Getty]

swiffer man up clean up

Yes, men cleaning. Who’d've thunk, right?!  Just a T-shirt, Swiffer? Not a Boy Scout badge? Or the Nobel Prize, perhaps?  I mean, men cleaning is obviously such a rare and uncommon practice that you think guys deserve a T-shirt bragging “Caution: Men Being Awesome” for wiping a Swiffer across the floor. (Which, as someone who also does not like to clean, I don’t think we can justifiably call “cleaning.”) It’s all part of the world’s dopiest Facebook contest called “Man Up, Clean Up” for men who are “clean, dirty, skilled or clueless” to go to Swiffer’s page and share stories of why it is “worth it” to help with household cleanups. More blowjobs? Not getting roaches? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. And just think, when you win that T-shirt, you’ll have something to use as a rag. [BusinessWire]

kate and pippa

A British watchdog group called Women In Journalism has carried out a four-week study of UK newspapers and had these dismayingly sexist findings about who ends up on the front page:

  • Male writers
  • Photographs of Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, or missing child Madeline McCann
Hmm. Not very good options.

"Do You Have A Gut Problem!?"

Oh women, we have so many problems. We can’t keep it together, which is why advertisers helpfully offer us a slew of products to make taking care of ourselves and our children easier. Brit comedy show “That Mitchell And Webb Look” present an all-too-real spoof on the silly sexism in advertising. [YouTube]

saudi IKEA catalog

Photoshop, you beast! Look at all the problems you cause.

I kid, I kid. The real problem here is Saudi Arabia’s backwards attitude towards women, which is the reason why IKEA airbrushed all the women out of its Saudi catalog. As you can see from these side-by-side photos which landed on the cover of Stockholm’s Metro newspaper, a charming domestic scene lost the female model so as to be deemed acceptable.

It’s just like the time an Orthodox Jewish newspaper Photoshopped Secretary of State Hillary Clinton out of a photo taken inside the Situation Room … only with a frykantig and a dagstorp. [Al-Jazeera]
