Rebecca Hains, best be known these days as the woman who got busted by the TSA for trying to take a red velvet cupcake through airport security, is, in her real life a media studies professor at Salem State University and author of Growing Up With Girl Power; Girlhood on Screen and in Every Day Life. She is also mother to a little boy who loves “My Little Pony,” a show, Rebecca says on her blog, that, like the beloved Powerpuff Girls, appeals equally to both sexes, defying the notion that boys/men won’t watch stories about girls/women.

I have to admit I’m not a “My Little Pony” aficianado — my daughter was never into them and I recalled the old show as being inane, and largely about selling toys (the fact that the ponies were revived for the Hub, a TV station owned by Hasbro, and are skinnier and “prettier” in their new incarnation only reinforced those impressions). Creator Lauren Faust writes on the Ms. Magazine blog that she was not initially a fan, either:

[Shows based on girls’ toys] did not reflect the way I played … I assigned my ponies and my Strawberry Shortcake dolls distinctive personalities and sent them on epic adventures to save the world. On TV, though, I couldn’t tell one girl character from another and they just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying – which miraculously inspired the villain to turn nice.

Fifty-one-year-old Illinois woman, ArLynn Presser, has taken to telling herself how normal she is. Well, maybe not normal. But not so strange in comparison to other people. That’s what she learned this year. Her 2010 New Year’s resolution was to attempt to conquer her agoraphobia by endeavoring to meet all 335 of her Facebook friends in person. For one year, ArLynn told herself, “There are no safe spots, there are no dangerous spots. There are just places I’m going and people I’m seeing.” Her “Face to Facebook” project turned into a life-changing year that spanned 12 countries and 51 cities.  Her journey, in which she learned how to open a champagne bottle with a machete and sing opera, amongst other things, is captured in this new documentary.

I grew up with one foot in the hardcore music scene. I say only one foot because the scene was largely dominated by aggressive dudes bent on expressing themselves through violence, pushing girls to the back to act as real, live “coathangers” (i.e. coatholders) for the boys. But that may all be changing if 8-year-old Aussie Juliet has anything to say about it. Juliet recorded this incredible hardcore song and video about how much she loves her dog Robert and her fish. So maybe hardcore’s getting better, after all. [YouTube]

Hey, young people! If you are thinking of succumbing to the temptations of sex, just think of cuddling with your talking teddy bear. Cuddling, meaning you can go inside and hump the crap out of that thing until you are of legal age to get hitched? Or maybe Purity Bear is one of those hide-a-vibe thingies. Either way, the acting in this commercial is absolutely phenomenal. The actor who played the role of Purity Bear is a real talent.  If I hadn’t lost my virginity a million years ago, this Day Of Purity campaign may have been enough to have kept me chaste. [Buzzfeed]
