Netflix PR Preps Men for 'Day Without Sports' With Boring Sexist Email

In honor of July 15, known extremely occasionally as the “Day Without Sports” (because no professional sports air on television), NYC-based PR firm MSL Group circulated a list on behalf of Netflix of streamable rom coms and sports movies that both men and women will enjoy. Thank you, Netflix, now go shove your dick in… »7/13/15 7:00pm7/13/15 7:00pm

Amy Poehler And Seth Meyers Burn SI Writer Who Dislikes Women's Sports

On Monday, Sports Illustrated writer Andy Benoit sent a dumb tweet in which he expressed his disdain for all women’s sports, including the Women’s World Cup. This did not go unnoticed by Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler, who dusted off their great old SNL bit on last night’s episode of Late Night and went in on Benoit. »6/25/15 9:28am6/25/15 9:28am

Stephen A. Smith Blames WWC Goal On "Not Wanting To Mess Up Their Hair"

It’s tiresome to monitor ESPN blowhard and domestic violence apologist Stephen A. Smith’s daily acts of polluting the Worldwide Leader’s airwaves with his Cro-Magnon attitudes, but here we are. While inexplicably serving on SportsCenter duty last night, SAS cracked wise on Norway’s gorgeous free kick goal yesterday by… »6/12/15 12:15pm6/12/15 12:15pm

Women Don't Need Restaurants for Women, Just Give Us the Goddamn Steak

Yo, Ladies™! Huddle up. Grab a backwards chair. (Now turn it around and sit on it RIGHT, YOU SHAMELESS HUSSIES. Ladies™ don't straddle.) It's time for some serious LadyTalk™. If you're a Lady™, like me, you've definitely run into this problem: It's dinnertime. You're starving. You haven't eaten since your morning cup… »5/09/14 2:56pm5/09/14 2:56pm

Why It Took 90 Years For Women's Ski Jumping To Make The Olympics

The first measured ski jump was explicitly a show of manhood. In 1809, the story goes, a lieutenant in the Norwegian military launched himself 9.5 meters through the air "to show his soldiers what a courageous fellow he was." The sport that grew out of that jump was likewise a test of manliness—far too dangerous, it… »2/11/14 11:59am2/11/14 11:59am

Why Can Men Be Such Jerks to Women Online?


Right now, I must confess, I'm feeling queasy about my stash of Sarah Palin porn. I was collecting it with a mind to write an article about it, I swear. I thought it was funny and revealing that the Great American Subconscious was percolating up Photoshopped images of Palin getting fucked by Barack Obama's giant… »1/16/14 2:01pm1/16/14 2:01pm

Any Man Who Won't Clean Is a Terrible Asshole (Or Old, or Both)

If you are a man in a relationship with someone (most likely a woman) who is fed up with you because you don't clean house at all, or as much, or don't do it competently, or have to be asked, or have to be yelled at, or have to, in ANY way, shape, or form, be spoken to like a misbehaving child or an egregious pet,… »12/11/13 5:29pm12/11/13 5:29pm

Men Who Insist You Change Your Name Make Terrible Husbands

I get a lot of dumb pushback at my job (itinerant lady-yelling), including but not limited to frivolous contrarianism, unhinged vitriol, and angry unsolicited advice (so angry!). But the shit that gets to me the most intensely and consistently is also the simplest. Just, "Nu-uh." Nu-uh, silly girl, that's not real.… »10/17/13 2:25pm10/17/13 2:25pm

Let's Bro-ify ALL the Woman Products So Men Won't Feel Like Pussies

We've covered at length the ways in which traditionally "male" fields and products (like pens!) are targeted at women: we ladies, weeping flowers that we are, are often offered a sanitized, delicate — often pink — version of a traditionally male product. The reverse situation is just as telling: when traditionally… »7/25/13 11:47am7/25/13 11:47am

Quit Fucking Asking Me Questions: A Refresher Course

When it comes to being a woman on the internet, there are enough frustrating roadblocks every day to make your brain liquefy and dribble out your ear all gross (more frustrating roadblocks than there are fireplaces at Rosings Park, AMIRITE). But possibly the most frustrating of all are the gnashing hordes constantly… »6/12/13 1:30pm6/12/13 1:30pm

Hey Dudes, Whaddya Say We Wrap Up This Sexism Thing Together?

Hey, I got this cool idea: If us ladyfolk and you menfolk can agree that we're actually equal, that we both deserve the same freedoms, bodily protection, autonomy, respect, and paycheck dollars for our work, that we have a shared, vested interest in making sure the care of the children and the households and the sick… »6/06/13 1:30pm6/06/13 1:30pm
