Your morning cup of stereotypes.

And what a great way to teach our gals about finance during this holiday season o’ debt – a credit card that doesn’t run out.

Thanks to Amy for the link.

Feministing will be back in full force…

On December 26th. Until then, we’ll be posting on a (very) limited schedule. In the meantime, let us know what you’re up for the holidays in comments. Me, I’m in Santa Rosa, CA with the boyfriend and without Monty — who is spending time with his brother in Woodstock, NY.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!

Anti-choicers show their true colors

Go watch this video immediately–it reveals the scare tactics and intimidation used by anti-choicers in Denver who are trying to shut down the construction of a Planned Parenthood clinic. For folks who are so “pro-family,” they certainly seem to like scaring neighborhood families. Disgusting.

For the last time: Sexual assault isn’t funny

You know what’s hilarious? Two guys holding down a woman screaming for help and cutting off her underwear with pocket knife. Oh, you don’t think that’s funny? You must me one of those humorless feminists…

Michael S. Puhalla, 39, and Russell J. Baumgardner, 40, are accused of holding down a woman against the bar in Sartell, Minn., and cutting off her underwear with a pocketknife and placing it on a fan in the bar.
[B]oth told authorities that they viewed the incident as a joke, according to the charges.
…She yelled for help several times and asked for the bartender to intervene, but he said, “I can’t or they will make things worse for me.” She said ...

Quick Hit: Our Screwed Up Sexual Culture

I have a piece up at Alternet which is essentially my way of actually making the argument I would have liked to make on O’Reilly the other week. One of the things I’ve found most frustrating about doing television (besides having my face airbrushed with make-up, literally) is the lack of actual dialogue or substantive conversation. I wonder why we put so much energy into making media that doesn’t actually make us smarter?
I just thought I’d link to it here since the feministing family were such great supporters. Thanks to everyone.

DC Even Happier Hour

Not to be competitive, but the DC happy hour kicked ass. Huge thanks to everyone who came out. And yes, we’ll be doing it again. I was thinking a daily Feministing happy hour, but apparently that’s unwise.
Highlights of the evening for me included the extensive signage, one soul brave enough to ask half a dozen strangers if they where looking for us, Ann trying to sneak out early, and of course, meeting all those great people. Those of you who attended, what did you like best? And where should we go next time?

Best Letter to the Editor Ever: Pregnant women can’t do politics

It seems that not everyone is pleased that Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is pregnant. Check out this amazing letter to the editor that ran in the Post Star:

First of all, I must admit that I am a male chauvinist and that there are, thankfully, differences between men and women. There are many occupations suitable for women and their physical attributes. Carrying a weapon while serving in the Armed Forces and firefighting are not suitable lines of work for women to prove that they are physically equal to men. How many male police officers feel comfortable with a 100 pound female backup?
And now, I have to add serving in the U.S. House and Senate as an occupation ...
