I've been on the side of Nadya Suleman ever since the story broke that the octoplet-baring woman was single, jobless, and already had 6 kids to take care of. Yes, it is irresponsible for her to have so many children that she can't provide for. Yes, it may have been irresponsible of the Fertility Doc to implant 6 embryos. But I don't like the idea of a fertility doctor making decisions about how many babies a woman should have -- no matter what her circumstances. ... Read More
Even if you're flat broke, you can still get it together to DIY some fab Valentine's gifts for your BF or BFF. Thanks to free or inexpensive stitch patterns, you can embroider a rad '80's cassette image (would make an awesome ipod cozy); stitch up a valentine's card or pillow, or make some cute embroidered stuffies like the whale or elfin couple. Embroidery is such a nice, affordable hobby - embroidery floss usually costs ... Read More

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 ... 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 ... Read More

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.

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. Can ... 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 ... Read More
