It's A Love Match!

I will never for the life of me understand why men whip their dick out in front of strange women. Especially when it is flaccid. What woman in the world has ever said, “Oh my god, you know what I need right now?! Your penis! Your flaccid penis! Thank God you are here!” Comedian Sasheer Zamata did a skit for the web series Storytime about this very occurence. She’s just better able to laugh about it than most of us. [Clutch Magazine]

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.

The good news is that YouTube has pulled an account belonging to “John Zippy,” a man who was surreptiously filming women’s legs on the subway through a camera placed inside a Starbucks cup and posting the videos online.

The bad news is the YouTube channel “New York Subway Girls” had 35 videos posted on it before it was yanked, featuring 102 women whose body parts were being filmed without their consent. Gross. And the New York Police Department is unable do anything about the vids — unless a woman filmed specifically complains about sexual harassment — because filming in public is not illegal.

Jay Smooth On Women, Trolling And Sexism

All feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian wanted to do was create a new project aimed at examining common tropes in video games through a feminist lens. Sarkeesian, who blogs at FeministFrequency.com, was hoping that the new web series “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games,” would offer a new, in-depth view on gender representation in video games and throughout gaming culture. She needed $6,000 to fund the venture, so she launched a Kickstarter campaign (the video for the project is after the jump), and pledged to make the web series available free online upon completion.

No big deal, right? It should have been a simple project to get support for and fund. But then her project caught the attention of anti-feminist, anti-woman trolls. Keep reading »

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]

The misting of her eyes almost completely distracted me from the words coming out of her mouth. As we stood side by side, overlooking a magnificent skyline view of twinkling skyscrapers, she told me her summer in Manhattan was not what she had been expecting. I knew something was very wrong when my strong-willed, outgoing friend told me this story with tears in her eyes:

“Whoa, what size shoe are you?” her 30-year-old male co-worker asked.

“I’m a size 11. I have pretty big feet,” my 6’1″ friend replied.

“You know what they say about a woman with big feet?”

“No, what?”

“A big clit.” Keep reading »

  • A third man has accused John Travolta of a sexual assault, following two lawsuits filed earlier this week by two unnamed masseurs that say the actor came onto them sexually during a session. The latest accuser, Fabian Zanzi, said Travolta assaulted him in 2009 when Zanzi met him while working with VIP guests on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Zanzi said Travolta asked for a massage and offered him $12,000 to have sex. [Daily Mail UK

  • A second masseur has accused John Travolta of groping him during a massage. The suit claims Travolta allegedly asked for a massage at an Atlanta motel and requested an unusual amount of “glutes” work on his butt muscles. He allegedly then tried to touch the masseur and ended up fondling himself. When the masseur left the room, Travolta allegedly “forcibly hugged him.” The actor is also being sued by a California massage therapist who claims the actor groped his penis and scrotum during a massage.
