According to a new poll from Pew, 56 percent of men think sexism is a thing of the past. “Finally,” the women of America told Jezebel during a conference call I made up. “We’re so grateful,” they added, “sexism was such a bummer.” The women were clearly overcome with such relief that they were unable to continue…
The competition is heating up in the Sexism Olympics. Last week the Chicago Tribune put forth a hearty effort in its reporting of Corey Cogdell-Unrein’s bronze medal in trap shooting. But, not to be outdone, the BBC has offered up its own diminishment of female glory. Chinese diver He Zi just won a silver medal, but…
Who would have guessed that an industry like advertising would have a problem with sexism? Now that’s sarcasm, Donald Trump.

Similar to the public’s reaction to the story, in a new interview, Margot Robbie describes her interview with writer Rich Cohen for Vanity Fair as “really odd.”
People attending the Republican National Convention are, by and large, as you would expect, not big fans of Hillary Clinton. That’s made clear from the convention stage, where she’s called a criminal and a liar and a disciple of Satan. On the street, trucks and t-shirts bearing the slogan “Hillary For Prison 2016" are…
In a recent profile, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee told Rolling Stone that she, unlike many Daily Show viewers, had never expected to take over Jon Stewart’s role—and that her acceptance of TBS’s Full Frontal offer came in part out of her own assumption that she would be passed over. “It didn’t seem like a reality to…

While the actors in Ghostbusters are harassed online, Sony’s Tom Rothman is watching the angry buzz about the franchise reboot build him a big pile of money.
Some of the leading ladies of the Ghostbuster’s reboot have commented on the internet backlash against their casting in the franchise—a backlash that feels like it’s been going on for maybe a hundred years now, and predates the original film in my mind.
Last week, L.A. Weekly published a profile by Art Tavana about pop musician Sky Ferreira, which largely focused on Tavana’s extremely edgy horniness. (Julianne explains it here.)
