Chelsea Handler Has The Right Idea About Helping Other Women In Their Careers

Chelsea Handler Has The Right Idea About Helping Other Women In Their Careers

Chelsea Handler is on the latest issue of Redbook Magazine. Yes, you heard me right. Chelsea Handler. The same woman who said, “There are two kinds of people I don’t trust: people who don’t drink and people who collect stickers.”Of course, she is right. That is just good common sense. But Redbook is a serious, grown-up woman’s magazine. I mean Michelle Obama was recently on the cover. Chelsea Handler likes to be known as a “Drunken Slut.” But the girl has a great career and she isn’t pulling up the ladder behind her it sounds like. She said: ‘I read this cheesy quote once: “Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours glow brighter…’We women have to stick together… I’m very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter. I like having a fraternity. I like girls and boys together, misfits and underdogs – I love underdogs.” More »

Fact: Women Are More Annoying About The Cold Than Men – If Not Actually Colder

Fact: Women Are More Annoying About The Cold Than Men - If Not Actually Colder

I am currently typing this post with a blanket on my lap, which is part of the reason that I refuse to believe some of the facts from this article on Slate: Warm Heart, Cold Hands. Are women really more likely to feel cold than men?

According to “science,” women have higher core temperatures than men. But colder hands. To learn this fact, the author consulted various studies that plunged people in ice cold water and employed armpit and rectal thermometers. According to my own research, women will never be satisfied by any temperature room you put them in. And the more of them you bring into a room, the more terrible the temperature will become. To learn these more valuable thoughts, I have simply interacted with women my whole life. Oh, also I am female myself. Hi. Guilty as charged. More »

Video: What's The Difference Between PETA And A Porn Company? (Not A Riddle)

PETA has posted an exclusive video on Buzzfeed of their NSFW Super Bowl spot, which means the pro-animal rights group created an ad that they knew was never going to air. What’s the point of that? Just to show the world how “controversial” you are? Anyway, the spot is an “outtakes parody” (the way The Simpsons: XXX is a parody) of the group’s 2009 Superbowl ad, Veggie Love. In it, bikini-clad women are oiled up and fellating vegetables. Just normal PETA stuff, you know. More »

10 Questions For Women Left Out Of The ‘Maxim’ Sex Survey

10 Questions For Women Left Out Of The 'Maxim' Sex Survey

Maxim has a new sex survey that is specifically designed for the ladies. The magazine will then use this new data for an article that will tell you how women like having their G-spots touched and that modern women hate snuggling.*

Since these responses are already biased to results that will mollify their sexually lazy and uncreative readers, we hope that next year, Maxim will include the following questions. More »

Margaret Cho Demands More Support For Women In Comedy- “The straight male comics that I know will always watch each other and give each other pointers and will always support each other. And by support, I mean go see each other perform, give each other rides to shows, give each other moral support like ‘You did good.’ Women don’t have that.” Where are the free rides, ladies?!

Gallery: The Worst Relationship Book Covers

I cannot stand self-help books for single women. I find the whole industry built upon our insecurity that we won’t get married and knocked up by the time we’re 30-ish pretty loathsome in general, because they seem to claim one thing (“You’re perfect the way you are!”) while not-so-subtly implying another (“You’re not good enough, that’s why you need our help!”). But mostly, I just hate the covers of dating advice books. More »
