You know what I’d like to see have a comeback in 2012? “Blind Date,” that ’90s dating show featuring scornful and snarky pop-up commentary. My interest in this show was revived this morning, as I watched this classic episode, featuring dating show regular, Ken Scalir. (Apparently Ken has been around the dating show block quite a few times, having not found his perfect match yet. It’s hard to understand why.) This blind date is so bad, it’s what our friend Anna of the blog Shmitten Kitten describes as “cringe-core.” In other words, enjoy! [Shmitten Kitten]

When pop culture depicts transgender people, they usually do it in such a facepalm way that I wonder why anyone bothers anymore. The latest what-were-you-thinking? comes courtesy of Libra tampons in New Zealand, which aired a commercial that implies trans folks who dress as women are not “real women.” The commercial shows an ostensibly “real” woman standing next to a trans person in the bathroom, who I guess is a drag queen. They both put on their lip gloss and mascara and adjust their boobs in their tight party dress. Then the “real” woman pulls a tampon out of her purse. The drag queen makes a “hmmph!” face and walks away. Keep reading »

I really, really love this “I’m Feminist Enough” video in which a bunch of women finish the statement “I’m feminist enough to ….” It really shows all the contradictions inherent in trying to live life with a set of values where it’s damn near impossible to be “perfect.” What this video really says is that not being the “perfect feminist” is OK.  All too often people who self-identify as feminists tear each other down for our differences, which isn’t productive to enacting the world change we all are so devoted to seeing. We really need more acceptance like this — of ourselves and each other. It’s also awesome that all the ladies in this video of women of color, who are not the “media-sanctioned” faces we associate with feminism. They’ve got a second and third video here and here. I hope to see more down the line! [Vimeo]

It’s all starting to come together now. Why Kim Kardashian needed to get rid of Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. On the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” he seemed awfully concerned with Jonathan Cheban’s (Kim’s PR guy) sexual orientation. Like, suspiciously so. Could someone be questioning? Does someone have a secret candle stash? Equally charming is the part where we are forced to watch him chew with his mouth open while spewing his ignorance. Lovely.  [Buzzfeed]

Happy 2012! I thought you might need some jams to ease you into the new year. Better yet, how about something you can rock out to while simultaneously receiving dating advice? No, we don’t want no scrubs, but we also don’t want no muffin pounders. Singer Shira (featuring Asco) reminds us about those kind of playas who only want to pound our muffins in her new single “Pound On My Muffin.” This could be the breakout track of the winter. Move over Rebecca Black. Also, those are cupcakes in the video, if I’m not mistaken. But we don’t want no cupcake pounders either. [Dlisted]
