According to non-profit publication  The China Development Brief, this protest was a first for China.It seems that the last anyone has heard about Ye, also ... Read More
I really like lists. I also really like The Frisky. So when I saw this article pop up in my newsletter a couple days ago, I couldn’t help but click. Kinda just thought I’d send it along to my boyfriend, make him chuckle a bit, maybe I’d get a few laughs out of it myself. Hmph.Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…my inner monologue:“Hm…Oh…Ha ha…That’s clever…Oh, that’s ... Read More

(Or, alternatively, MY Personal (Brief) Ode to (and Mental Debate Over) Christina Hendricks) Since my little ol’ post pertaining to Christina Hendricks seemed to cause a bit of a stir yesterday, I thought I’d share this newly posted BBC article with everyone. Many of the concerns that were voiced yesterday have also appeared in this article as well! (Note: The following are my thoughts on bodies and such at this current moment in time. I have been known ... Read More
The Colour of Beauty is a short documentary that follows aspiring model, Renee Thompson, as she attempts to take on New York City's fashion industry.  The video uncovers that the fashion industry still lacks true diversity.  Designers and casting agents still believe that black women won't sell magazines, products or clothing.   From casting calls where black models are told not to even bother to the horrendous scrutinization of their slightly ...

Chelsea Baker, a 13-year-old Floridian, has beat the boys with her killer 65 mph knuckle ball. Being the only girl on a boys-only sports team can't be easy but Baker certainly makes it look that way. Her team has been undefeated the past four seasons, due to her perfect pitch (2 of her games were actually perfect, striking out every batter). You go, girl! However, I'm not surprised that she kicks ass at baseball, only that she has managed to make it this far. I ... Read More
A fatwa (basically a Muslim ruling by a religious official, not necessarily a grand scheme death threat ala Salman Rushdie) has been issued by an important Saudi cleric that says that women may respect declarations in certain countries (ahem, France) that forbid the wearing of the niqab or burqa. Sheikh Aed al-Qarni has said that it is “illogical and unreasonable” for the French government to be going through with this basic removal of religious ... Read More
Just in time for last night’s season premiere of Mad Men (which I haven’t watched yet, so don’t tell me anything!), Christina Hendricks, the lovely Joan Holloway (whatever, she will always be Holloway to me, married to a turd or not), is being hailed as a fantastic role model for women and girls by Britain’s Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone. She is “absolutely fabulous,” so it goes. Of course I cannot help but agree. This ... Read More
    The BBC reported last week on a case in Israel where a man has been convicted of rape because the woman he had sex with learned after the fact he was not Jewish, but Arab. The judge deemed it "rape by deception" and cited another case where a man posed as a neurosurgeon in order to sleep with a woman and later was convicted of fraud. But fraud is not rape. According to reports filed by the woman, the two met in a public street then later that day ... Read More
While dancing at the former Rum Jungle bar, a young woman's breasts were exposed for the GGW cameras when someone reached up and pulled her tank top down. Jane Doe, who was 20 at the time, is now married with two children and living in Missouri. She didn't find out about the video in 2008, when her husband's friend saw the "Girls Gone Wild Sorority Orgy" video and recognized her. 'Jane Doe' sued Girls Gone Wild for $5 million. It took only 90 minutes for ... Read More
