Native New Yorker Kanika Ameerah says she was feeling frustrated by the social networking sites available to her, so she decided to make her own.  Her new site, Raspberry Mousse (, is in her words a "social networking and events portal that caters to the... bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer crowd--truly a place for the rest of the LGBTIQ community, where we get the chance to be and feel like 'regular people' in a world that treats us like we're not.

(The Spring Break Porno Fantasy) (My Spring Break Reality:  oral surgery and thesis. Yesssss.) It's Spring Break ladies and that means you're probably going to some beach somewhere, wearing slutty clothes, drinking way too much and getting yourselves raped.  As of today, 10 rapes have been reported at Daytona Beach and the media is going into a frenzy about a Spring Break "Rape Epidemic" without seeming to realize that this isn't breaking news and this isn't an isolated Spring Break phenomenon.

Texas loves its women.  Most of the time. Seriously, we have a pretty badass history in general (remember the Alamo?) but even more specifically we have a pretty badass history when it comes to women.  We had Miriam A. Ferguson in office as our governor for a decade starting in 1925 (just six years after women's suffrage) and Minnie Lou Bradley running her own ranch in the 1950's. Read More
By now you've probably read all about how now-former Member of Congress Eric Massa resigned because a male staffer complained of a hostile workplace. Here's Massa's quote on the incident.

Yesterday my friends and I were joking on Facebook (shut up) about Terry Gross's Fresh Air interview with Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart: Memoirs of a Dominatrix. Terry Gross is pretty famous for being a great interviewer but she was way out of her depth. She just seemed unable to believe that "normal" people work in sex dungeons or patronize them. While talking to the author, Terry veered back and forth between "How did a nice girl like you end up doing this?" and "Thank goodness you no longer do that so I can have you on my show and you can explain it to me.

Should Oscar Be Neutered?

BY mikki in Eat Me

In today's New York Times, Kim Elsesser makes the case that the Academy Awards should get over their damn selves and blend all of the acting categories so there is no longer a "Best Actress" and a "Best Actor." It's not a new idea--feminists have been suggesting it for decades. But my feeling is: Who cares? I just can't get worked up about this issue when I think about the fact that there have only been thirty-five women in the Senate. Ever. Read More
