  • The Soapbox: Actually, Katie Roiphe, Feminists Are Not Perplexed About Submissive Sex

    Bondage/dominance/sadomasochism (BDSM) erotica novel Fifty Shades Of Grey has swept the nation, landing itself on many a Kindle and launching a feeding frenzy for the movie rights. More digital ink has been spilled on What Does This All Mean? for women and our sexual desires than will ever be spilled on the people killed by a tornado in Oklahoma this weekend. So naturally, Newsweek/The Daily Beast hired Katie Roiphe, who both loathes contemporary feminism and does not understand BDSM in the slightest, to write about it. ...

  • The 7 Worst Ever Celebrity Dads

    <p> I'm fully convinced that <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thefrisky.com/2011-10-25/morning-quickies-michael-lohan-busted-for-domestic-violence-again/" target="_blank">Michael Lohan's headline-making domestic violence arrest</a> yesterday was copied straight out of Mel Gibson's playbook. Of course, Mel's famed blowouts were uniquely terrible because some of them were directed towards the teenage son of ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Last month, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.tmz.com/2011/09/27/alexander-dalton-oksana-grigorieva-son-witness-terrorizing-blowout-will-not-sue-guarantee-fight-mel-gibson-settles-money/" target="_blank">Mel paid $100,000 to Oksana's 14-year-old</a> for the guarantee that he wouldn't sue the once-respected actor for reportedly "terrorizing" him during altercations with his mother. That's low, even for Mel Gibson. Additionally, his own toddler daughter with Grigorieva bore witness to a number of her father's detonations. </p> <p> It's hard to top this sh**ty parenting, but surprise, surprise, more than a few celebs come come! After the jump, six more celebrities who I definitely wouldn't want for a dad. </p> <p> <i>This post originally appeared on The Frisky.

  • What It Means To Be A Gentleman

    I came late to appreciating chivalry. For most of my life, chivalry made me uncomfortable. I've always identified as a feminist and Third Wave feminism generally is pretty frosty towards traditional gender roles. But more so than being a feminist, I felt the same way a lot of modern women (who may o

  • Tatyana Ali’s Show “Love That Girl” Fat-Shames A Big Girl … Who Happens To Be My Friend, Erica Watson

    "Making fun of the fat girl" is the oldest and most cliché gag in TV history. And when Tatyana Ali's show "Love That Girl" made fun of a fat girl in a recent episode, they were downright cruel. Instead of using a stock image or say, not mocking a plus-sized woman's body at all, the show used an ima

  • 5 Ways To Drink Bourbon

    <p> My first bourbon experience was at a dark bar in New Orleans, where I ordered "bourbon, on the rocks" because I thought it would make me sound cool. I took one sip and started retching, so the bartender put a sympathetic shot of cola in my glass. "Try it like this," he said, and I did, and started coughing and retching again. "Maybe a little more…" he said, and we continued on like this until finally he just gave me a Coke on the rocks. My dreams of being cool died that day, but now that I'm older and wiser I'd like to try this whole bourbon thing again. </p> <p> I asked my friends Patrick and Rachel, who run <a rel="nofollow" href="http://therewillbebourbon.net/" target="_blank">ThereWillBeBourbon.net</a>, to compile a list of ways to enjoy this classic spirit. Whether you're a seasoned sipper or a bourbon newbie like me, there's sure to be a suggestion for you (the bourbon chocolate chip cookies sound like just my style). Read on for imbibing inspiration (recipes included!)… </p> <p> <i>This post originally appeared on The Frisky.
