A discussion on HuffPost Live about the contemporary meaning of masculinity devolved into the only female on the panel being called a “fucking idiot” because she dared disagree with his views on feminism and gender roles, namely that all feminists are miserable and that all women just want to fulfill their biological imperative to breed and be homemakers. And bake pies. They probably want to bake pies, too. More
But at the end of the day, I guess… boys will be boys. At least my boy will, because even though he claims to be a feminist and even though he claims to understand what this vocation is all about, there are Legos to be played with. More
And by the way, sweetie. If one of you howling cunts ever tried to throat punch me i would leave them in a pool of their own blood. More
I can’t think of a good reason to give up my N.W.A. even though I know that the majority of rap music is derogatory towards women and these young boys today being exposed to music that is derogatory towards women doesn’t help in creating a world where men grow up to be less derogatory towards women. Rap music, especially the violent misogynistic stuff should really only be sold to old housewives like me who are able to separate the music from the message. More
Being offended by this shit doesn’t make me a “hysterical feminist” – it makes me a woman who is sick of people thinking this sort of not-funny, lamer type of humor is okay. I’m sure there are plenty of douchebag dudebros who purchase and happily wear shirts like this. You have my full permission to throat punch any of them if you see them wearing one. More
This week, Kickstarter provided the platform for the funding of an unbelievably offensive book to be published. It’s called Above The Game: A Guide to Getting Awesome with Women. In case you didn’t know, “getting awesome” is code for forcing yourself on and basically sexually assaulting women. Awesome! More
Despite the fact I like to think I’m well-versed in pop culture and what the kids are into these days, I will never know what it’s like to be a young, black fan of Odd Future and Tyler The Creator. Although I am old and white and a woman, even I know that letting someone like Tyler The Creator create advertising for your brand is a bad idea, even if your brand is trying to appeal to the Wolf Gang Kill Them All Nihilist Gamer-Fuel Raging On Kill People Burn Shit Fuck School demographic.

I now understand why my parents wouldn’t let me go to the mall with my friends for years as a teenager. They were worried that I would be exposed to despicable trash like the t-shirts available for young men at Spencer’s gift stores. They just didn’t want their daughter to see clothing stating, “When I Want Your Opinion, I’ll take my dick out of your mouth.” More

For some completely insane reason, a New York Times reporter wrote a hit piece on American hurdler Lolo Jones on the eve of her big Olympic race. It was one of the most brutal and vicious attack jobs against a female athlete I’ve ever seen. And it speaks volumes about the confusing messages our daughters receive about self-esteem, virtue and success. The hit piece moved Jones to tears in this video. More

At 92Y in New York City last night, a panel of prominent politico ladies such as Sandra Fluke, Amy Holmes, Nicolle Wallace, Stephanie Schriock and Christine Quinn chatted about the unique challenges women face when running for public office. Entitled “Running in Heels,” the discussion was moderated by Chelsea Clinton, who admitted first hand that she was not cognisant of how few women run for office until her own mother ran in 2008. But the “elephant in the room, ” according to Abby Huntsman Livingston, Jon Huntsman‘s daughter, was indeed the media — and more specifically how women and girls consistently get degraded for speaking up…just for being women and girls.
Quite fittingly, Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student who found herself in the national spotlight after being called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh, had a few choice observations on the topic. Many of which had to do with with being an example for young girls. More
Bristol Palin has been called a lot of awful names since her national debut in 2008. From her teen pregnancy to her once upon a time marriage announcement to Levi Johnston to simply being Sarah Palin‘s daughter, the young lady has been a press target for a good chunk of her life. And as a young woman in the public sphere, sexually charged insults don’t evade her as in addition to many attacks on her sexuality, she also had the pleasure of being told her mother was a “whore” by an ardent Palin hater.
Between the ages of nine and 13 years old, Sarah Talbot was raped repeatedly by her step-grandfather. At age 11, she found the courage to tell her grandmother and a family friend of the abuse. But after she came forward with details of her attacks, her grandmother convinced Sarah that she had “imagined” her assaults. Sarah eventually went to go live with her biological mother at age 14 and describes the repeated rape as being “brushed under the rug” after a “brief interlude” of awareness on the part of her family.
