Let’s Watch These Twins Freak Out Over Rubber Bands

Let's Watch These Twins Freak Out Over Rubber Bands

I’m just going to watch this video over and over again all day while the rest of the world is awful. I love this because as a parent I have used the rubber band trick to childproof things before, and you could tell that’s what these parents were probably doing until these twins were all “No, this is the best toy ever and it will amuse us for hours so don’t even try keeping us out of the pots and pans.” More »

What’s With All The Internet Boob Shaming Towards Us Old Ladies Lately?

What's With All The Internet Boob Shaming Towards Us Old Ladies Lately?

From breastfeeding in public to wearing a bra or not wearing a bra it seems like there is so much focus on what women are doing with their breasts, and who cares anyway? We don’t give this much concern to men and their testicles. Men are never testicle shamed. I have zero idea about anyone’s testicles unless they live in my house and I’m reminding them to wash them when I run their bath. I’m totally going to start testicle shaming male celebrities. I am sure there has to be something wrong with Kanye West‘s testicles. More »

You Can Tell Your Daughter Not To Walk Alone At Night, But Tell Your Sons Not To Attack Her If She Does

You Can Tell Your Daughter Not To Walk Alone At Night, But Tell Your Sons Not To Attack Her If She Does

But what parents need to understand is that all of these things we can teach our kids, all of these discussions we have about personal responsibility and safety and how we can lessen our chances of becoming victims of sexual assault mean absolutely nothing, because there is absolutely nothing you can do to guarantee you will never be a victim of rape other than locking yourself in a tower and never leaving your house for the rest of your life.

That’s just how it is. More »

Survey Says None Of You Parents Want Chris Brown Babysitting Your Kids

Survey Says None Of You Parents Want Chris Brown Babysitting Your Kids

I don’t think, in this day and age, parents really look to celebrities, especially reality TV celebs, to be role models for their children. My kids couldn’t pick someone like Farrah out of a police lineup. I’m not even sure the majority of parents even expose their kids to celebrities like Amanda Bynes – it’s not like she has a popular TV show on at present. More »

Award Winning Children’s Author Says We Need YA Sex Scenes To Keep Kids From Copying The Sex In Porn

Award Winning Childrenâs Author Says We Need YA Sex Scenes To Keep Kids From Copying The Sex In Porn

Great Britain’s cool aunt has a point, no? As much as I wish that kids could be a little more discerning about the difference between fantasy and reality, Sasha Grey and Sally, your fifteen-year-old girlfriend, the fact remains that a lot of teens are just not that smart about this stuff. They have no idea what they’re doing, so they’re going to look for answers wherever they can find them, and if the only place they can find them is Xtube, they are going to get answers that are fairly unpleasant for 99% of the teenage girl population. (1% are nasty little freaks who will enjoy said answers.)

The Top Worst Tweets In Response To Serena Williams’s Steubenville Victim Blaming

The Top Worst Tweets In Response To Serena Williams's Steubenville Victim Blaming

Serena Williams has since issued a PR backtrack for essentially blaming the 16-year-old Jane Doe who was sexually assaulted in the now infamous Steubenville case. By entertaining the old “she shouldn’t have been there” line of thought, Serena effectively engaged in the biggest rape apologist script ever. But upon putting your ear to the Twittersphere, some responses to Williams’s gross sentiments echoed some equally problematic rhetoric and lady-hatey sentiments. More »

Ronald Stephenson Is Pretty Much The Best Babysitter Who Raps About Breastfeeding Ever

Ronald Stephenson Is Pretty Much The Best Babysitter Who Raps About Breastfeeding Ever

The song is too catchy and the video is all too cute. I want Ronald to make a whole series of these and then release a CD of songs all about life dealing with a baby. I wonder if he takes requests because I think we need songs about not being able to find a changing station in a bathroom at the mall and an epic rap battle confrontation between Ronald and an old lady at a park who tells him Yazzy needs to have a sweater on.
