You know them. Dancing around while eating yogurt. Wearily trying to avoid dessert. Conducting board meetings in their bikinis. Okay, maybe not the last one so much, but still. A new ad for Irish-brand LowLow Cheese tackles these common clichés of diet-food ads, which, unshockingly, all happen to be women. (Serious food for thought: how often do we see diet food marketed towards men?) And while I wish that this wasn't being presented to us by an ad itself (it kind of feels like the "special...
It's been a long road for the hip-hop dance queen, but M.I.A.'s finally blessed us with this badass track off her upcoming album Matangi.

Who else has it, if not women?  Oh right, radical leftist gender benders. Carry on. Christina says that contemporary feminism is too centred in the political left, with “a lot of man-bashing,” and women who are “at war with their own femininity.” I personally think the left is where it’s at and that feminism rules for men, plus I know lots of hella feminine...
