The Broadsheet gives their top 5 sexist iPhone apps!

December 21, 2009 1 comment

The Broadsheet has graciously taken a gander at all the sexist iPhone apps and have got it down to the top 5! Here’s the list:

PMSTracker:

It “allows you to quickly track the approximate time each woman in your life has PMS” using a color-coded method that functions much like the U.S. government’s terror alert system.

Shake That Booty:

This app allows you to manipulate an image of a woman’s butt — or, as the official app description calls it, “BOOTY!” — by physically shaking your phone.

Pole Dancing

“Get these hot girls to spin around a stripper pole by shaking your iPhone/iPod touch from side to side! Even better, clap, yell, make some noise and they will spin around at your command.”

Michelle:

She’s your brand “new virtual girlfriend” and “can be who you want her to be.” You can take Michelle “to the beach or pool and choose which bikini or bathing suit she should wear.”

iControl Her:

iControl Her is an actual remote that appears on the iPhone screen, with such clever buttons as “Stop Whining,” “Clean” and “Give Me Beer.”

Do you agree with these? Are there even more sexist iPhone apps?

Douchebag quote of the day!

December 17, 2009 1 comment

This is taken from an article about the new possibility of the male birth control pill.

β€œIt is time for men to have some control. I think it would empower men and deter some women out there from their nefarious plans,” says Brown. β€œSome women are out there to use men to get pregnant. This could deter women from doing this. An athlete or a singer is someone who could be a target and they could put a stop to that.”

Wow. Thanks for that Quentin Brown.

CBS blurs out Adam Lambert’s same-sex kiss

November 25, 2009 Leave a comment

Really, CBS? I can’t believe that I was glad you decided to put Lambert on The Early Show when GMA canceled his spot!

The ironic thing is, CBS aired the Britney/Madonna kiss with no censorship at all (and in fact, I never saw any censorship from that kiss ever). But Lambert’s same-sex kiss needs to be censored? Is it the fact that you know he’s actually gay? Is that the problem? Or do more people have an issue with two men kissing, as opposed to two women? Probably both things rings true – although no one will admit it.

After Elton has the whole story here.

Breaking News: The Catholic Church cares more about their homophobia than actual PEOPLE

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Oh wait, that’s not breaking new. Everyone already knew that! Sorry!

So, the Catholic Church has decided to partake in disgustingly hateful, ridiculous, discriminatory actions in D.C. My literal reaction was “Are you fucking kidding me?”

So, here’s the rundown.

1. The Catholic Church is threatening to shut down all of their social services in D.C., which serves about 68,000 if D.C. doesn’t change the proposed same-sex marriage bill.
2. The Catholic Church would not have to perform same-sex marriages, or even let couples have use of their buildings, but they would have to stop discriminating against gays and lesbians.
3. The Catholic Church says that they have issues with being “secular”, but really, they actually don’t have to be.
4. The issue is ultimately that the Catholic Church uses public money for their social services; therefore, they should not be able to discriminate with public money!

I mean, they are pretty much making sure that everyone knows the kind of power they have and how exactly they are willing to use it. They don’t want to use their power for good, they want to use it to make sure that homophobia remains pervasive, while forgetting about people in need. They don’t actually care about providing services for people. What the hell? As a born-and-bred pastor’s kid, growing up in a Baptist church, this sickens me. This also reminds me why I hate being in the same category as these “Christians”.

Have they not even thought about the consequences of these actions? Also, have they not even thought about what this is doing to how people view the Catholic Church? It’s no wonder that more and more young people are skipping out of any religious affiliation. It’s because of this hateful shit that’s going on!

Luckily, the D.C. City Council isn’t concerned too much about this threat. One even calls it “somewhat childish”. Another description I like is from Peter Rosenstein, from Campaign for All D.C. Families, is that the Catholic Church is trying to “blackmail the city.”

This issue doesn’t just bring up the issue of heterosexism, but it brings up power structures, economical issues, political issues and the very tangible employment of people who actually run these services. This is all of course for another post, but something to keep on your mind. Ultimately, we are reminded once again how hateful a powerful group (or at least a few high up individuals) can be. We can’t just sit back and let this stuff happen. If you’re from D.C., or just want to make your voice heard in this matter, contact the City Council and show your support for the same-sex marriage bill!

“Coffee, tea … or me?”

This was found in an article in the Toronto Star, about feminism, as well as a little history lesson. Apparently, if women at all wanted to travel “back then”, they had to become “stewardesses”, and that’s what they would have to say.

Wow. Just, wow.

Of course! Being kind is all it takes men!

December 28, 2007 Leave a comment

New craptastic book alert! Victoria Zdrok, a Penthouse columnist, is the author of a new book called Dr. Z on Scoring: How to Pick Up, Seduce and Hook Up with Hot Women.

The Economic Times (for some weird reason) has a little article about it. In it, it explains that being kind is really the only important things and that pretty much any women, whether she’s attracted to you or not, will give into your great man-kindness and at least get in bed with you!

“And kindness is one of the qualities women most look for in a male. Be sure to have a good sob story handy about the times you were ‘down on your luck’ and now want to ‘pay back’ the community. Next thing you know, you’ll be enjoying soup in her kitchen,” Zdrock added.

Um. Ok. Is this really how all women work? I doubt it is. And if men were smart at all, maybe they wouldn’t listen to someone who works for Penthouse. I mean, seriously! Oh, and of course, the book mentions “women’s lib.” So good.

“Contrary to your instinctual aversion to women’s lib, National Organization for Women meetings are the perfect breeding ground for available horny women,” she wrote.

“Liberated women are much more likely to cast away outdated notions of courtship and chivalry . . . and you just might get laid on the first date,” she added.

Warning to all liberated females at the National Organization for Women meetings/conventions/whatever. Be weary of any man that comes and is kind, tells a sob story and clearing looking for some ass. Since you know, we’re liberated and all, so we’ll just sleep with absolutely anyone we can get our hands on.

I think I’m an “Over-analysing, funny, man-hater!”

October 30, 2007 Leave a comment

This “news” comes all the way from Sydney. Supposedly, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, women are getting “scary” because they are so concerned with men vanishing into thin air that they need to “nab a man”. But not all men have taken to this “newfound aggressiveness that women have taken on”. The article then goes on to describe five types of “scary women”. And for sake of hilarity, trying to half-ignore the misogyny going on here, part of the descriptions are as follows:

The One Who Asks Men Out

Most men say they love it when they get asked out by a woman, but try getting asked out every single week and it’s enough to make their skin crawl. “I like to do the chasing,” is the common cry of the gents.

How am I not surprised that the men like doing the chasing?

The Over-Analyser

Ever noticed that some women over-analyse every single thing that men do? “Why didn’t he call?” “What did he really meant by that text message?” “Does that phone call from his ex while we were at dinner together really means he’s still sleeping with her?” Argh! No wonder the poor gents are fed up.

The Drama Queen

Instead of falling at her feet (she is absolutely gorgeous), it seems they prefer a more low-maintenance kind of gal, and want nothing to do with her crazy world. After all, they know dating a drama queen isn’t easy. It’s their way or the high-way.

The Funny Woman

Then there’s the gal who can make a crowd of punters laugh. According to an article in the Independent on Sunday in the UK, research reported in the scientific journal Evolution and Human Behaviour, recently revealed that funny women are a turn-off for men.

Seriously? Women can’t be funny now? Men always have to have the sense of humour? Give me a break and suck it up guys!

Finally…my favourite one!

The Man-hater

She abhors blokes, tries to catch them out when they are genuinely being friendly, and prefers to bitch about men with her feminist group than prowl the town in search of one. And the reason men don’t like her? She dates just like a man …

I really have no words. That was just…wow. I love how this article can seemingly generalize the whole population of women into five types of “scary women”. I guess we’re all in there somewhere!
