A Message From the Chairwoman of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee

I peaked, size wise, at the age of 10, when I bought my first training bra — that, with a bit of a tug across the torso, could certainly fit my bust line today. Vacillating between the funny gray area of a size 32AA and 32A (depending on the time of the month), as an adult woman my breasts hardly heave, but rather… » 3/17/14 7:00pm 3/17/14 7:00pm

Dads Pretend to Breastfeed for Well-Intentioned But Annoying Campaign

Project Breastfeeding is a photo campaign featuring fathers pretending to breastfeed their infants. Its slogan, "If I could, I would," is meant to show male support of breastfeeding, but inadvertently comes off as another source of pressure in the "Breast is best" debate. » 3/05/14 11:40am 3/05/14 11:40am

Breastfeeding Benefits Have Been Exaggerated

Formula-feeding has been vilified in recent years, with new moms being told that if they don't breastfeed, they could be putting their child at risk for a slew of health, behavioral and developmental problems. But the findings of a new study suggest that's total bullshit. Breast might actually not be best. » 2/28/14 10:40am 2/28/14 10:40am

A Million Pink Ribbons Have Done Nothing for Black Women

Pink crap-drunk America was busy Racing For The Cure for the last 30 years, one race has been left behind in the fight against breast cancer: black women. In 2013, black women are still twice as likely to die from the disease than their white counterparts. Twice. As. Likely. That's a fucking disgrace. » 12/20/13 5:45pm 12/20/13 5:45pm

The Anonymous Woman Whose Breast Was on the New York Times Speaks

Last week, the upper torso of an anonymous woman appeared on the front page of the New York Times — and caused a bit of a stir. While the woman remains anonymous, she has written a letter responding to Times readers. » 12/02/13 5:00pm 12/02/13 5:00pm

Boobs Age Faster Than the Rest of Your Body, Because Nature Is a Dick

Back when I was in my early 20s, before I became the proud, dazzling, professional, skirt-suited woman-scholar that I am today (i.e. a hungry, unshowered, still-in-bed hangover-crone who's only managed to make it to semi-vertical today despite having had to pee for literally four hours), I used to make this joke in… » 10/22/13 10:40am 10/22/13 10:40am

'Motorboating for Breast Cancer' Campaign Promotes Douchebag Awareness

Every year, millions of American men and boys are infected with douchebaggery — a soul-fatal condition in 90% of cases. While we know frustratingly little about the causes of douchebaggery, we see its devastating effects all around: public urination, the continuing popularity of Tosh.0, and, now, this latest Useless… » 10/16/13 11:20am 10/16/13 11:20am

Consistently Braless Nicki Minaj Hates Bras: 'Bras Are The Devil'

Nicki Minaj will be on Ellen this Friday, and in this preview clip, you can watch her walk out on to the set in a jacket that does not cover much of her torso, revealing a vast display of innerboob and underboob and, well, you know, boob. » 9/26/13 1:10pm 9/26/13 1:10pm

Reddit Has Already Figured Out How to Make the New iPhone Creepy

Well, that was quick: just days after the release of the new iPhone, the gentlemen/scholars of Reddit have already figured out a way to make it weird and creepy: by using the slow motion video camera function to record and swap videos of bouncing boobs. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of boobs, just a-bouncin'. » 9/23/13 5:45pm 9/23/13 5:45pm

Out Of Control Boobs Are Keeping Female Athletes Down

Breasts: are they more trouble than they're worth? No — that's a rhetorical question so ridiculous that it shouldn't have even been asked in jest, and I apologize. But while knockers are a mammalian necessity, when it comes to athletics, they're often in the way, and they might even slow us down. What's a titslinger to … » 7/10/13 7:10pm 7/10/13 7:10pm

Facebook Won't Remove Mastectomy Photos...Unless It Feels Like It

Here's another tally for the "maybe Facebook is run by decent human beings" column: In response to a petition by breast cancer patient Scorchy Barrington, Facebook officials have clarified their position on moderating post-mastectomy photos. » 6/13/13 5:30pm 6/13/13 5:30pm
