What Bizarre and Depraved Things Did You Subject Your Barbies To?

If you have been on the Internet in the past few weeks, it's likely been brought to your attention that Barbie, a little hunk of plastic shaped like a woman with synthetic hair on it, appeared in Sports Illustrated. Many feminists see this unholy union as a perfect reification of the problems with both crumbling… » 2/21/14 1:20pm 2/21/14 1:20pm

Sports Illustrated Celebrates 50th Anniversary With Ass-Centric Cover

Yes, we saw Barbie on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but it was just a promotional ad. Obviously SI wants real live flesh-and-boob ladies on the cover of the 50th anniversary issue. Here they are: Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen. And while traditionally, Sports Illustrated covers showcase breasts, this… » 2/14/14 10:50am 2/14/14 10:50am

BBC Apologizes For Shitty Thing It Said About Bartoli And Her Dad

Today, gentlemen, we were reminded why we lug our reputations as troglodytes well into the 21st century.

The Back Cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Tells You to…

Did you notice the ad on the back cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue? (You have a subscription to that, right?)

Arizona Safeway Deems Jessica Simpson's Pregnant Belly Too Lewd to Be…

An alert tipster spotted this homemade device at a grocery store in Tucson, Arizona. It's blocking what was apparently determined to be a scandalous Elle cover featuring the very pregnant body of Jessica Simpson. The tipster reports that it's been there for a week; so it is certainly intentional, as the charming… » 3/21/12 11:55pm 3/21/12 11:55pm

We See London, We See France, We See Kate Upton's Vulva, Practically.

The cover of this year's famed Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has leaked, and it is, well, revealing. Model Kate Upton is showing a great deal of sideboob, but more worrisome is what's happening down below. Isn't that suit—it's really more of an eyepatch, actually—so disturbingly small and low that some of her… » 2/13/12 9:00pm 2/13/12 9:00pm
