Get out your brooms and aprons, ladies. TV personality Pat Robertson has some truly old-fashioned advice on how to get over your husband’s infidelity, and a part of it requires good housekeeping. In a recent episode of his show The 700 Club, Robertson’s advice to a female viewer distressed about her cheating husband was to let it go, because, “well, he’s a man.” He also suggests that she should look into why she married him in the first place, suggesting that a man is worth keeping so long as he’s a good provider and “handsome.

Damn it, American Apparel. Why do you make it so easy to complain about you? It seems they just can’t stay away from over-sexualizing the female models in their ads, while completely leaving the men out of the spotlight! In their new ad campaign for “unisex” clothing, AA has managed to take flannel and denim away from the standard sexy cowboy motif and throw it on the half-naked super model. I don't know about you, but I don't feel "sexy" in my flannel. I feel more like "I just woke up at noon from a night out in Brooklyn, and don't ever want to leave the couch" in my flannel. Read More
It’s about time! School girls in Saudi Arabia can now participate in organized sports without breaking any laws. The Saudi government announced it this month: private girls’ schools are allowed to hold sport activities in accordance with the rules of Sharia law.

Officials in Osaka, Japan are keeping their heads down this week after their mayor, Toru Hashimoto, made some uncool comments about the country’s role in keeping "comfort women" during World War II. His exact (-ish) words were (as translated and quoted by Japanese media): "In the circumstances in which bullets are flying like rain and wind, the soldiers are running around at the risk of losing their lives. If you want them to have a rest in such a situation, a comfort women system is necessary. Anyone can understand that. Read More
Friends of Planned Parenthood in North Carolina donned their best bustles and pumps yesterday to fight the state’s latest anti-woman bill, HB730. The gals dressed up '60s style to show just how out-of-date the bill’s proposals are. They said they “love a good vintage look – but not when it’s running state legislature.” Genius! What is it about this bill that's got their knickers in a twist? Are you sitting down? It's a doozy. Read More
Remember the dreaded “humor gap” idea about men always being funnier than women? And that bogus pseudo-science Vanity Fair piece on the topic? Oy vey. I wish that was the only case of weird dudes telling the world women aren’t funny, but alas, the shoddily lobbed insults keep coming. If only we had a sweet comedienne to put this shit show to rest. OH WAIT, WE DO. It’s Ellie Kemper from Bridesmaids and The Office, hey girl! This week she wrote an article for GQ about the unfunniness of men, and it’s perfect. Read More

 Look at the top of our site - to the right of our logo. Now back to me. Now look to the right, above the radio, and down, below the content. Now back to me. If you're on this page, then what you're seeing in those places is not an ad. Nope, in fact, you will not be seeing any Google Ads on this page, or on many of's pages that link to this story, or mention this story. That's because, apparently, Google seems to think that if you are using the word "slut," then you are a bad, bad, dirty website. Read More

So now that you've finished answering the ever-burning inquiry, "BUT WHAT DOES IT MEEEEEAN?" you can finally focus on this fun, new phrase people have come up with for what happens when you get a random part of your body tattooed.
