“Hey Baby”: Women Kill Men Who Sexually Harass Them In New Video Game

Riddle me this: are the people who design video games all messed up and demented? A new video game called "Hey Baby" lets a female avatar run around with a gun, shooting men who sexually harass her with the usual obnoxious crap, like "You know you want it!" and "I love you!" Whe…

Is This Starlet’s Ultra Bloody Photoshoot “Art”?

Which starlet released two ultra violent (NSFW!) photos today, calling them art? She shot them for an upcoming book by photographer Tyler Shields called The Dirty Side of Glamor, but to me, there's nothing glam or sexy about violence against women, suicide, or snuff films. See the pics after the jump... [Amy Grindhouse]…

Catfight On The Soccer Field

Ah, Friday. What better day for a catfight video? Only, in this case, the "fight" is actually a "sport," albeit a game in which the ladies of the Brigham Young University and New Mexico State University University of New Mexico soccer teams exhibit some very unsportsmanlike conduct.

Palestine Kids Show Teaches About Suicide Bombing

Usually, children’s television shows teach kids to treat others nicely—to share toys and be good sports. Generally, they don't glorify suicide bombing and promote “violent resistance” against Israel.

Sexy Or Sexist? Marie Claire’s Ads Feature Women Holding Their Own Decapitated Heads

These ads caught my eye -- which I suppose is exactly what their creators at Brazilian ad agency Publicis had in mind when they created them. The image is arresting, isn't it? In this provocative ad series, the women appear to be holding their own lopped off heads. The tagline is an odd fit, though.

Angelina Jolie Is Too Violent For TV

A British watchdog group has deemed the TV commercial for the "Wanted" DVD release too violent because its star Angelina Jolie is pictured brandishing pistols and a shotgun. Britain's Advertising Standards Authority says the commercial "could be seen to condone violence by glorifying or glamorizing the use of guns." Universal Pictures, which released…

Babies And Marriage

Even though any parent will tell you (hopefully) that their children are the lights of their life, having kids will make a marriage less lovely, at least for a bit. A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology found that couples experience a serious drop in marital satisfaction in their first year of being…

Female Fighting Increases In The U.K.

Have you ever gotten into a fight? Amelia says she has "unfortunately" never been in one, and I haven't either. Well, except for a couple with my sisters, but that doesn't count because they're family. Young people these days, however, are a little more rambunctious than we were in our teenage years. According to statistic…

The Daily Squeeze: Carla Bruni’s Increasing Value, Video Games, And A Sick Hamster

A nude photo of French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy from 1993 sold at Christie's auction house yesterday for $91,000 -- more than 20 times its expected price. And Carla has improved her Amazon.com sales rank significantly since we first reported on her relationship with Nicolas. Back in December, her album No Promises wa…
