I'm feeling inspired to go down to Chinatown after work and pick up a huge $5 bundle of PW's for the house. Read More
Warning: this story may drive you to drink.  In Mangalore, southern India, a group of women who were attacked last week by a mob of over 40 men for simply relaxing at a local bar. As reported by the LA Times , a Hindu extremist group, Shri Ram Sena, took responsibility for the attack, claiming that they were simply 'safeguarding Indian culture.' The group, which has been compared to the Taliban, does not believe that women should be independent, wear Western clothes, or drink alcohol.

Like a Prayer

BY debbie in Sex

I'm so glad to see my girl Madonna is getting back to her roots and once again (supposedly) dating a beautiful MOC (man of color). It's so obvious that these guys are her type - from her early squeeze Jellybean Benitez to baby daddy Carlos Leon, she's long gone for cute Latinos and men of mixed-ethnicity. For some reason, though, she never seems to think of these guys to be the marrying kind, instead shacking up with pasty Sean Penn and Whitey Whitestein himself, Guy Ritchie. C'mon girl, stay true to your crotch this time. Read More

Hell Hath No Fury...

BY debbie in Feminism

I cannot stop thinking about how pissed I am about the bonuses that all those slimy bank execs received this year. When the story first came out, they were all, 'Hey! we are so cutting costs! because we are only getting 50% of our usual bonuses this year'. But I was immediately like, wtf? You guys were greedy and made crappy deals, which has brought the entire country to its economic knees -- you should be getting NO bonuses this year! I've worked at companies before - bonuses are performance-based; you get them if you, or the entire company, does really well in a year. Read More

Who's That Girl?

BY debbie in Feminism

Sure, we're feeling all proud about ourselves here in the US for electing our first African-American president, and rightly so. But over in Iceland, they've just got their first openly gay Prime Minister, and that makes her also the first openly gay head of state in the whole entire world, ever! Johanna Sigurdardottir is Iceland's first lipstick lesbian leader, as well as Iceland's first female Prime Minister (although they previously had a female President. Read More

Lily Allen: Bummed Out?

BY debbie in Sex

The always adorbs, unsinkable Lily Allen performed at some sort of UK nightclub recently in some sort of giant bunny costume before stripping down to this electric blue sailor-esque romper outfit. Haters can shut the F up, i think it's completely cute, and everything I want from the only ballsy comtemporary female pop singer who has not yet spontaneously combusted. I'm glad to see Lily continuing to be her cheeky  self, especially since her new album is about to be released. Read More
