Douchebag Decree: Archie Andrews, Serial Flip-Flopper

I only ever flipped through Archie comics while waiting in line to buy groceries, bored by the overwhelming whiteness of Riverdale and confused by Jughead's hat. But it always seemed weird that a series about such a squeaky-clean golly-gee group of teenagers revolved around something as potentially controversial as vague polyamory. The series is over 70 years old, and its technology has changed...

Meghan McCain's Twitt-illating Cleavage

Meghan McCain posted the cleavage shot that launched a thousand tweets last night with this twitpic of her reading an Andy Warhol biography:

The photo, which she captioned with the line, my "spontaneous" night in is my Andy Warhol biography and takeout....I'm getting old caused a major freakout among her devoted Twitter followers and their pervy friends, with cries of "boobs!"...

Sarah Haskins: Fashion Expert on the Rachel Maddow Show

By now maybe you've heard of Ralph Lauren model Filippa Hamilton's contract being terminated because she was "too fat." (And all this after she was horrendously photoshopped.)

Who better than tackle the topic than Target Women's Sarah Haskins, who was on the Rachel Maddow Show last night! If you missed it, here's the clip...(it also shows what happens when their graphic design team uses...

New Thao w/ the Get Down Stay Down Video

Lately we've (or at least I've) been a little Thao-crazy. I interviewed her for the Consumption Junction podcast (where she offers something special to Bitch podcast listeners, so check it out!), she was a fave on the latest episode of Bitch Popaganda, and (shhh) she just may play a role in the next issue of the magazine. What can we say? Thao rules! And so does her new video, so check it out...

On the Map: Do Do-Gooder Celebs Actually Do Good?

Eco-consumerism is not the answer, Miranda Kerr. Not even if you take off your clothes.

She Pop: The Red and The White--Some Thoughts On Taylor Swift and Katy Perry

Dear Lord, Taylor Swift fans! I cannot keep up with you! Witness just a sampling of the very angry comments on my Taylor Swift post of last week: 

Personally I think she is kind of silly, but I can understand why so many people like [Taylor]. Especially teen girls. She tells girls that its okay to wear "T-shirts and sneakers" instead of "High heals and short skirts"....

Tube Tied: Regarding Joan

Sorry for so much Mad Men, but as my blogging stint approaches its end, I wanted to complete my little triad on the women of Mad Men - and I'm a little worried lately about Joan.   I'm worried because the last time we saw her she was no longer wearing that hairpiece and her walk was more tentative than usual.  I'm worried because she married that frat boy douchebag which everybody says is so...

R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano: Feminist Antiheroes 'R' Good Enough

This morning, professional wrestler, Cyndi Lauper video star, and feminist antihero Captain Lou Albano passed away at the age of 76. For you youngsters out there who may not be familiar with Captain Lou (or even for those of us who are), you will absolutely not regret taking 12 minutes out of your day to watch this epic Lauper/Albano collaboration video, "Goonies 'R' Good Enough":

Sm{art}: Elle Martini leaves you wanting more..

I met her in the backyard. She was soaking up the sun, wishing it would never set. She greeted me with excitement, her energy radiating. When she spoke I could sense she was a strong woman that had worked hard for what she had. I quickly learned that she was a Portland-based writer & director...

Finally, an AMP iPhone App for the Predatory Douchenozzle Set

Let's say that you're out at a bar, and you meet an attractive girl. You want to talk to her, but you are completely devoid of all redeeming qualities and are literally incapable of striking up a conversation with anyone, let alone someone you hope to have sex with. Before now, you'd probably have to run to the bathroom and consult your Tucker Max paperback for potential date rape tactics, but...
