What we missed

An interview with Melissa Harris-Perry about her new book Sister Citizen and more.

IKEA in Australia has opened a day care for men in their stores. No, really.

Dear Zappos, different body types means different body types. Clearly you didn’t get the memo.

Mother’s with breast augmentation afraid the look of their breasts will change if they breastfeed. That’s so many layers of sad, I don’t even know how to push through it and come up with a coherent argument.

    Another internet forum I frequent talked over the IKEA story. The conclusion was that it was just a short-term promotion for Australian Father’s Day; one of the posters who lived in that town went and visited in person to see how bad it was first hand and it was already gone. Of course, the promotion did strike everyone on that forum, especially the men, as obnoxiously sexist.

    The “Manland” was implemented in Tampere IKEA in Finland already last year, and not just for Father’s Day but as a permanent part of the newly-opened store. I went there to follow the men’s football World Cup with my girl roomie during summer as w didn’t own a television ourselves. We were the only people there that day, for the record.
