What if Equality Is the Biggest Bonerkiller of All?

What if you found out that too much respect was hurting your orgasms? Being regarded as an equal in a marriage is great and everything, but would you give it all up if only it meant your partner still wanted to bang you? Or that you still wanted to bang him/her?

Women Are Doing the Man Things But Men Won't Do the Lady Things

Women are doing all the "man things" they can these days. Wars. Heavy lifting. Dangerous jobs. Cigars. Heart attacks. And men are doing more "lady things" than ever before, like expressing identifiable emotion and caring about children. They are really picking up the slack and the slacks. Get it? From off the floor?

The Church of England May Allow Female Bishops...in Two Years

In the great race towards the 21st century, the Church of England’s time machine may be several decades ahead of the time machines of the other big Christian institutions (I imagine them to be racing Mario Kart style, but of course everyone’s free to make use of their own whimsy).

Animator Scott Benson Eviscerates MRA Arguments with Clever Cartoon

An intrepid tipster, as intrepid tipsters are liable to do, has sent us a pretty cool link to a cartoon created by animator Scott Benson. It’s called “But I’m a Nice Guy,” and sums up the fallacy lurking behind MRA screeds about rampant misandry and feminist conspiracies with a simple ice cream analogy that even the… » 4/28/13 10:35pm 4/28/13 10:35pm

Saudi Prince: Women Should Drive Because of the Economy, Stupid

Women can drive. I mean, of course women can drive. Anyone with the required faculties can drive, and the only possible reason a government can have for divesting women of the basic human right Henry Ford gave people to own a Model T and idle away hours of their lives in rush hour traffic is to limit their means of… » 4/16/13 9:30am 4/16/13 9:30am

Sane Republicans Exist, and They Need to Make Their Party See the…

Some Republicans are having a change of heart about same-sex marriage — not tons, and not even a remarkable amount, but a few are.

Meghan McCain Doesn't Realize Being a Republican Is a Choice Even If…

Speaking at a Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry event on Monday, Meghan McCain said it's a "bitch" being a Republican who supports marriage equality. Umm...yeah. No doy.
