Women of the workplace, unite! Even your office building’s air conditioner is sexist, new research suggests. This week, two scientists (both male, thanks fellas!) published a study revealing the guidelines most office buildings use to set temperatures were created in the 60s, when women were largely absent from office environments. You know, because we weren’t wanted there and women aren’t fit for work outside the home, blah, blah. With only male employees, the “thermal comfort model” equation was formulated with male metabolic rates in mind.  Which...
Kevin Bacon wants to see wiener. Balls, butts, the whole nine yards. In a recent video, Bacon hilariously demands more male nudity in films and television, but he just may have a point. It’s true that you can catch more than a glimpse of boobs or lady tush in a single episode of Game of Thrones or True Blood, but you’ll rarely - if ever - see more than a shirtless man. What gives?

Yesterday, in a 53-46 vote, the measure to defund Planned Parenthood failed. YAHOO. Many conservatives in both the House and Senate are still willing to do whatever it takes (no matter how absurd and irresponsible) to block federal funding to Planned Parenthood. For instance, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told reporters the GOP should use "any and every procedural tool available" to defund Planned Parenthood. When pressed if that meant forcing a government shutdown over the issue, Cruz argued Democrats should be the ones asked if they...
