Viral misogyny alert: “The Women of LA”

Ugh. The Nice Guys of OKCupid “DJ Lubel”–the guy behind the Murray Hill video from 2009–has released a new spoof music video, “The Women of LA,” complaining about how bitchy women won’t provide the sex he and his friends deserve. The clip is so awful for so many reasons that I don’t know how to levy a real critique, but here are some highlights:

The entire video is based on the premise that women owe men sex, and that if a guy isn’t getting laid, it’s obviously because of the ladies’ flaws, rather than his own. We’ve been over this before. Despite the DJ’s desperation to convince one woman to sleep with him, he expresses ...

Woman from Fox News’ accidental same-sex wedding picture speaks out

 

Yesterday the feminist internet collectively lol’d at Fox News when Jessica Valenti realized that the “wedding kiss” picture they’re using to accompany a piece about traditional gender roles is actually of a same sex couple.

Turns out, the two women whose love was mistakenly highlighted by the tirelessly homophobic news outlet are no strangers to the spotlight. Lela Mc Arthur and Stephanie Figarelle of Anchorage, Alaska won a contest last year to have their dream wedding in New York at the Empire State building, becoming the first same-sex couple to be married at the historic site (here’s a kickass video of them reciting their vows and defending their right to do so).  They are currently on their honeymoon (!) but Stephanie Fiagrelle gave us permission to ...

It’s 2013. Let’s end ‘booth babes’ for good

Woman of the future, when perhaps one can present technology and also simultaneously not be objectified.

Scene: It’s the year 2137. The world is doing pretty well. Hoverboards have gone out of style almost as quickly as they came in, surprising a lot of people. UGGs inexplicably live on in popular conceptions of fashion, as do ‘boots with the fur’. The President of what’s left of the United States (the previously large U.S. was reduced to a small island off the coast of Mexico after its population became predominantly, then overwhelmingly brown and insisted the mainland be renamed to “Brownlandia”) is a multi-racial pansexual queer-identifying trans womyn who was elected on campaign promises to bring traditional family values ...

Colbert to Trump, “1Million to the charity of your choice for me to dip my balls in your mouth”

I sat down today to write a really serious post about racism and belonging (like Zerlina did) in light of Donald Trump’s “big announcement” yesterday. But its hard to engage with someone that makes it their business to annoy people or is a Known GOP Blowhard. His brand is to be a jerk–so I think the best reaction to Donald Trump’s bribe to Obama of 5Million dollars to a charity of his choice, is Stephen Colbert’s:

“Nothing would make me happier than to write this check,” said Colbert. “And nothing would make America happier than have something going into your mouth than coming out of it.”

Yep, that’s right. Stephen Colbert offered Trump 1Million dollars to the charity of his choice, if ...

“Creepy anti women laws” shown in perspective.

Comedian and writer Lizz Winstead puts these creepy laws into perspective:

Winstead launched Lady Parts Justice last week in response to GOP coordinated war on women’s bodies, health,  and privacy. Winstead offers more in explanation:

Look, it’s time to stop being polite and start asking, “What the fuck do you think you are trying to pull here?”

It is time to ask, “Why the fuck are men and women who are inexcusably incompetent continually being elected into statehouses, governorships and THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS? And how the fuck is it that this asshole serves on THE SCIENCE COMMITTEE of The House of Representatives?!

ENOUGH.

Good morning! Here is the newest political parody from Randy Newman, who I already loved because of Toy Story, but who just won my heart all over again with this one. “I’m Dreaming of a White President” is the pretty great way to start your Thursday morning. Lyrics are below the jump.
