Meet Your Fairy Black Mothers in This Girlfriend Intervention Parody

Lifetime's Girlfriend Intervention is an embarrassment on a number of levels. The entire premise is based on a tired stereotype of the sassy, quick-talking black girl whose only purpose is to serve up some soul and down-home advice to her white girlfriends. » 9/24/14 2:45pm 9/24/14 2:45pm

Girlfriend Intervention Looks Cringeworthy

Oh Lifetime, why must you do this? Your lane is made-for-TV movies produced a decade too soon and six months too quickly that are perfect for live tweeting and you do it well. Stick to that, because when you try too hard we end up with programs like Girlfriend Intervention which premieres tonight. » 8/27/14 7:10pm 8/27/14 7:10pm

Why Women Are So Hot for Highlanders Right Now

There is a lot to discuss re: the upcoming Outlander adaptation, and there is a very good chance that soon you will not be able to get me to shut up about it. First things first, though: Why do so many women love Scottish highlanders so goddamn much? » 8/01/14 4:20pm 8/01/14 4:20pm

Let's Debunk Stereotypes About Women and Make Up Some New Ones!

As a woman, if there's one thing I know about women, it's STEREOTYPES. I swear, sometimes it feels like you can't even masturbate yourself to fake-orgasm with a stiletto without tripping over a chocolate laundry hamper of brand new lady-myths!!! » 4/03/14 2:40pm 4/03/14 2:40pm

There Are Some Wack Stereotypes About Lesbians Floating Around

Man, watching this new short for Girl on Girl's Indiegogo Campaign brought me down. Even if this isn't what people are saying they personally believe, it's sad that this is how we think of lesbians culturally. The video was made to promote awareness of Girl on Girl, a film following the lives of lesbians who, even… » 11/25/13 10:00am 11/25/13 10:00am

In Disney's Planes, the Guys Soar While the Girls Get Left in the Dust

I’ve blogged twice about the sexist preview for “Planes,” and after seeing the movie today, I’m afraid I’ve got to blog about this awful scene once more. The sexist scene actually opens the movie. It sets the tone for the whole film, which is the opposite of what I thought the scene was going to do. When I saw the… » 8/15/13 3:00pm 8/15/13 3:00pm

Watch This Super Cool Music Video About How Dudes Love Asian Girls

If you're the kind of person who misses the days of Incubus and Linkin Park but wishes they had been just a little more offensive, here is a new track from your new favorite band Day Above Ground. It's called "Asian Girlz" and it's devoted to praising the aforementioned Asian women whose "sticky rice" the band loves.… » 7/31/13 12:10pm 7/31/13 12:10pm

Stereotypes of Men and Women Solve Stereotypical Problems Differently

Thank goodness for gender stereotypes. Without them, what would shitty stand up comics use as premises for bits? What would evolutionary psychologists study? They'd have to go back to college and get art history degrees, and the comics would be stuck with taking shots about Nickelback, which is the new airline food… » 7/02/13 7:45pm 7/02/13 7:45pm

GOP Congressman: Fight Gayism With Reinforced Gender Stereotypes

Representative Phil Gingrey (R-GA), our resident OB/GYN Congressman and Todd Akin-sympathizer, is like the gift that keeps on giving us an active gag reflex. On the House floor last Monday, Gingrey successfully killed two progressive morals with one giant homophobic, sexist shit. » 6/19/13 7:55pm 6/19/13 7:55pm

Samsung Introduces You to the Perfect Husband/Domestic Servant

An ad for Samsung’s wide world of evolved televisions featuring a dimwitted couch-bound husband transformed into a domestic servant marionette has drawn cries (mostly from MRAs on Reddit, but also now from Fox News) of sexism. Probably a fair critique, although Adweek’s David Gianatasio doesn’t think the outrage is … » 5/22/13 11:55pm 5/22/13 11:55pm

Lucy Liu: 'People See Sandra Bullock In a Romantic Comedy, But Not Me'

Lucy Liu has been acting for 22 years, and at 44-years-old, the actress has played everything from "Asian girl who beats everyone up" to "Asian girl with no emotion". That's a direct quote from Liu, by the way. » 5/14/13 2:00pm 5/14/13 2:00pm

‘Grandma Got STEM’ Challenges the Stereotype of Technologically Hapless…

Denigrating grandmothers for their supposed lack of technological prowess is bullshit because a) big fucking deal you can use a computer — your grandmother was probably old enough during the moon landing to roll her eyes when Neil Armstrong read his cheesy "one small step" line, and b) grandmothers are really crafty,… » 3/24/13 2:30pm 3/24/13 2:30pm

Refreshing Tide Commercial Manages Not to Rely on Goon-Dad Caricature…

Ah, the American father — that beer-guzzling, football-watching, hamburger-grilling lump of a human who so often prostrates himself on the family couch before his stupefied children like a sedated gorilla has been soundly mocked as a hapless oaf since, well, General Yepanchin in The Idiot. Then, of course, there's … » 3/15/13 4:20pm 3/15/13 4:20pm

Samsung Introduces Brand New Space Phone with Lots of Old Sexist Jokes

The better to introduce its new Galaxy S IV space phone to the public, Samsung hired a troupe of actors to perform several cheesy, poorly-written burlesques about the phone's appeal across the sundry demographics that comprise the American space phone purchasing contingent. This went on for about an hour, according to… » 3/15/13 11:00am 3/15/13 11:00am

Science to Women: Try Literature Instead

Could these AP exam prep books from the Princeton Review be any more obvious? English and history are for ladies, and math and science are for boys. Since many text books now overcompensate with science covers that feature ladies (please see: every stock photo of a girl looking into a microscope ever — honestly, it… » 3/11/13 9:30am 3/11/13 9:30am

Watch the New Diet Coke Hunk Get a Soda-Jizz Facial

While regular sugar-filled Coke is focusing on "happy calories" and joy, Diet Coke reminds you that bubbles are sexy, men are sexy and sex is sexy. Also getting sprayed in the face is sexy. Back in 1994, Diet Coke debuted the "Diet Coke Hunk," a well-built construction worker who took off his shirt and guzzled a DC… » 1/28/13 4:40pm 1/28/13 4:40pm

New Gender Normative Target Ads Feature Ejaculating Cake Mix and Oatmeal

Target's new series of domestic labor ads all go something like this: a glowering model runwalks on screen wearing high-waisted (white) shorts, a white t-shirt, and white high heels, because it is obviously the future and everyone has adopted the standard THX 1138 monochromatic wardrobe in order to dress more… » 1/19/13 2:00pm 1/19/13 2:00pm
