These Doctors Will Teach You How To Deal With Your Teen And The Dreaded Sex Talk

These Doctors Will Teach You How To Deal With Your Teen And The Dreaded Sex Talk

There is a new book out for parents that in my opinion is an absolute ‘Must Read’ entitled Got Teens: The Doctor Moms’ Guide To Sexuality, Social Media And Other Adolescent Realities. I like to think I’m some sort of parenting expert, but even I don’t have all the answers (shocking, I know) – what I loved most about this book is that it is incredibly realistic and doesn’t talk down to parents or our teens, it offers advice in practical, sensible, totally realistic ways when you are trying to help your teen navigate through all the icky realities of the world, social media, rape culture, slut shaming and making their own ways towards adulthood. The authors sat down with me to answer some of my most pressing questions. More »

Polly Pocket Doesn’t Sexually Abuse Children – Sex Abusers Abuse Children

Polly Pocket Doesn't Sexually Abuse Children - Sex Abusers Abuse Children

The sad fact is, kids would be sexually abused even if there were no dolls in the world. To make a connection between the sexual abuse of children and the fact that some children’s dolls wear makeup or revealing clothing is beyond offensive because it comes pretty close to blaming children and what they play with for their own abuse. A child is no more likely to be sexually abused if she is playing with a doll or with a rock. More »

Dear Courtney Stodden, It’s Going To Be Okay

Dear Courtney Stodden, It's Going To Be Okay

I have a soft spot for Courtney. I have seen her called the worst sorts of names, names no mother should ever hear in conjunction with her DAUGHTER spewed in headlines, in article comment sections, on message boards, on social media, all over. Put her in a pair of sweats and wash her face and at the end of it, she is just a girl, now pretty much a woman, and it just can’t be easy being her. More »

10 Troublesome Comments From The Christian ‘Modest Is Hottest’ Teen Series

10 Troublesome Comments From The Christian 'Modest Is Hottest' Teen Series

The self-proclaimed “largest community of Christian teen girls on the web!” otherwise known as Project Inspired has a wealth of material for that exact cohort. With beauty tips, polls, books, and advice columns, at first glance the site seems like any other teen girl digital haven. But the site’s “Modest Is Hottest” series, in which staff highlight “modest” gowns on various red carpets as well as “makeover” a celeb lady who transgresses, make for more troublesome reads — and I’m not talking about the copy in the articles. I’m talking about all the crazy double standard, victim-blamy logic that is happening among young girls in the comment threads, all conducted behind the shield of Modesty. More »

(UPDATE) Mom Criticizes Scantily Clad Girls For Posting Selfies, Posts Pics Of Sons In Bathing Suits

(UPDATE) Mom Criticizes Scantily Clad Girls For Posting Selfies, Posts Pics Of Sons In Bathing Suits

Mothers wringing their hands over “aggressive girls” looking to tempt their pure and upstanding sons with all that slutiness always seem to find outward displays of sexuality of the utmost concern. Duck face from underage harlots can be found across multiple social media platforms, all the better to corrupt their otherwise pristine sons with. Such is the dilemma for one mother of teenage boys, Kimberly Hall, who pens a personal blog post addressing “lovely ladies” who insist on sharing pictures of themselves with “the red carpet pose, the extra-arched back, and the sultry pout.” Mrs. Hall, as she signs, is disappointed in you ladies for posting images of yourself “in a state of undress.” Yet, accompanying this didactic post criticizing said undress are pictures of her own sons clad only in swimsuits. Double standard, much? More »

Psychologist And Mom Plans To Tell Daughter How Much People Lost ‘Respect’ For Miley Cyrus

Psychologist And Mom Plans To Tell Daughter How Much People Lost 'Respect' For Miley Cyrus

If you have yet to hear your local parents engage in your fairly standard slut-shaming, hand-wringing “can you believe that Miley Cyrus at the VMAS?” go round, then relax. It’s early yet. Miley’s albeit lacking performance (and I don’t just mean clothes) will make the parenting rounds faster than a case of head lice. And soon, you’ll most likely have to listen to a lot of concerned parents frantically try and piece together what to tell the kids (if he or she even cares). That was certainly the case for one mother who went so far as to search for professional advice. And said professional handed over a big old bag of classic slut-shaming. More »

Hilarious Bride Walks Down The Aisle To Buckcherry Song, Gets Slut Shamed

Hilarious Bride Walks Down The Aisle To Buckcherry Song, Gets Slut Shamed

Theresa Semonski, who I have dubbed the “Crazy Bitch Bride,” has gotten a lot of flack from various websites about her controversial choice of wedding song. Namely, Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” a song whose claim to fame is being inspired by the Paris Hilton sex tape. Now I understand some of the criticism. I wouldn’t personally perform a song with lyrics like “scream so loud / getting fuckin’ laid” and “she’s fucks so good / I’m on top of it” in front of kids, but I’m withholding judgment.  More »

I Can Totally See Why This Dad Was Peeved When A Creepoid TSA Agent Clothing Shamed His Daughter

I Can Totally See Why This Dad Was Peeved When A Creepoid TSA Agent Clothing Shamed His Daughter

And the thing is, it doesn’t matter if she looked “inappropriate” according to ANYONE, because an adult has no place clothing-shaming a girl that they didn’t give birth to, ever. I don’t care if Frauenfelder’s daughter was wearing a bikini or street lingerie or a freaking ball gown with a bag over her head, what she was wearing or not wearing was NONE of the TSA officer’s business.

From The Magical Land Of Douchebag Dudebros Comes A Whole New Level of Slut Shaming

From The Magical Land Of Douchebag Dudebros Comes A Whole New Level of Slut Shaming

I know this doesn’t just happen in the Tarpon Springs area. Good ‘ol revenge porn slut shaming happens all over the place, but this webpage was pointed out to me. Speculation about who started this page has already begun, but I don’t feel comfortable naming and shaming the lovely young lady being accused because I have no proof of this. So many of the posts have to do with people slagging on moms and single moms, I almost feel like spending my afternoon posting “being a mom is hard” on all the pics while reporting this page More »

Women Teased For Porn Aspirations Gets Revenge With Porn Pics Taken At Catholic School

Women Teased For Porn Aspirations Gets Revenge With Porn Pics Taken At Catholic School

Valerie Dodds, a 19-year-old aspiring porno star, attended the Catholic Pius X High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. During her tenure at the school, she told some classmates and teachers her dreams of starting her own adult website, and they mocked her! Oh nooooo! So she got some payback at these slut-shamer porno-haters and went back to the school and had a racy photo shoot. More »
