'Law and Justice Aren't the Same': Interview With a UVA Rape Survivor

In the history of UVA, only 14 students have ever been found guilty of sexual misconduct. One of these cases was adjudicated in September 2006, while I was attending the school as an undergrad, and—though I didn't know it at the time—in class with the woman (who we'll call Kelly in this interview) who'd spent 10… » 11/24/14 1:50pm Monday 1:50pm

Jason Patric's Custody Battle Makes Him Look Like an Abusive Psycho

Speed 2 star Jason Patric seems like a cross between a basket case and violent bully whose acrimonious—bordering on ludicrous (he's suing for custody of a child for whom he was a sperm donor)—paternity suit has him allegedly teaching phrases to the child like, "Mommy has a stinky vagina." » 7/16/14 4:45pm 7/16/14 4:45pm

WTF: Rolling Stone Cover Casts 30 Rock Men as Superheroes, Tina Fey as…

What the fuck is this garbage? 30 Rock is ending after seven seasons of genius and this is how Rolling Stone celebrates? Tina Fey is the star, the creator, the executive producer, the person behind the casting of Tracy Morgan and Jack McBrayer, and, according to IMDB, she has a writing credit on 135 episodes.

Men Who Rock: Finally, Men Are More than Just a Pretty Face in the…

Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger* created a fucking great piece of feminist satire this week. For their "Men Who Rock!" issue (compiled by Emily Nokes and Bree McKenna of DIY-feminist-pop-punk-rock-whatever band TacocaT), they parodied Rolling Stone's annual lady-rock issue with nudie cheesecake photos and… » 10/03/12 6:15pm 10/03/12 6:15pm

Karmin — a Group That Is 50% Male and Does Not Rock — Wins Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone partnered with Garnier Fructis to create a "Women Who Rock flip cover contest." This means that the back cover of the magazine — which is usually an ad — will still be an ad of sorts, promoting hair products, but it will look like a cover. The contest featured a fairly diverse bunch of artists — Rye Rye,… » 9/25/12 12:25pm 9/25/12 12:25pm
