Senate Democrats gathered enough support to block a Republican attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. The bill, S.1881, garnered 53 votes in favor and 46 in opposition, falling short of the 60 votes needed for it to pass.
The entire thing was a waste of time, anyhow: President Obama has voiced his support for Planned Parenthood… More »
The Senate is voting on funding for Planned Parenthood in the wake of a fake controversy, the Obama administration is backing Truvada for HIV prevention, Chinese activists are protesting the idea that a breast is a weapon, and two women are shaking up London’s art scene. More »
Gaaaaaah! There’s a new trailer out for “Zoolander 2″! (“2oolander”?) Are you excited? Are you clapping enthusiastically? Are you blasting Wham! from your windows and stepping outside with three friends to recreate the gas station scene with your hose? Have you been waiting for the last 14 years to hear any inkling of information whatsoever… More »
Oh good lord, would you look at this one. This charming KKK member came to a rally at Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park to express his support for the Confederate flag – but he did not exactly come dressed for the occasion. He came wearing FUBU shoes … and he did not see the irony.
The man was briefly… More »
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, presidential hopeful Chris Christie was reminded that he once said he’d punch bullies in the face.
I suppose Tapper decided to reopen that wound again and ask Christie about his thoughts this time around as a presidential hopeful:
“At the national level, who deserves a punch in the… More »
OH MY GOD GUYS, GET OUT YOUR FUCKING PHONES. The band Foals released a video for their track “Mountain At My Gates” that’s interactive if you open it with the YouTube app; you’re meant to stand in one place and move the phone around while you watch it. I’d tell you what happens, but I’d… More »
The texts came through in rapid succession. “OMG!” “Are you so excited?” “DID YOU HEAR!?!” “The X-Files” was returning to television and I, a superfan with an “I Want to Believe” poster tacked to my bedroom wall, could only muster a flutter of dread.
I love “The X-Files.” And I love that it’s over.

Emma Donoghue’s Room WRECKED ME. I mean, I’m pretty sure it did the same thing to everyone who read it, because what’s not soul-destroying (in the best possible way, because it’s fiction) about a mother raising her son Jack in a small room, where they’ve been held captive since before he was born? Brie Larso… More »

There is a strange, pervasive trend in the great content scheme that, for some reason, highlights the reactions of men to things that women experience and go through every single day. This is a formula that was pioneered by Buzzfeed’s Try Guys, a merry group of diverse men who gamely try things that women go… More »
Do either of the following statements sound like you?
You miss “Game of Thrones” desperately when the season is over.
You love a good beat.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former “Survivor” castaway, idiot sidekick on “The View,” and current “Fox & Friends” host, is not exactly known for her brains. What she is definitely known for is scraping the bottom of the barrel for any and all possible, not necessarily plausible, excuses for why cops unlawfully arrest and/or kill unarmed people of… More »
Michelle Duggar really loves her gay anthems, apparently. … More »
A few things were made abundantly clear on last night’s premiere episode of “I Am Cait,” Caitlyn Jenner’s new reality show on E!. While perhaps technically a spinoff, “I Am Cait” is a far more serious and hopefully less scripted reality show than the wildly popular “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” But despite the show’… More »
