Now, there's no denying that Joe Manganiello is, as Jack Donaghy would say, "keeping it tight." No matter your type, he's an attractive guy with something to offer in the bod department. However, judging by the boners (and ladyboners) the media publicly have for this guy, we may have crossed the border from "He's Hotville" into "Objectificationland." It's like we're taking all of that collective 50 Shades of Grey sexual frustration out on him!
My character's name is "Big Dick" Richie, but you can call me Dick.
Those of you who spend a fair amount of time on the internet (and I include myself in this group) have hopefully had the good fortune to visit the wonderful world of I Can Has Cheezburger, the ultimate source for LOLz on the world wide webs. (If you haven't been there yet, you should really check it out.)
Anyway, we here at Bitch lovez ourselvez some LOLz, and we thought it would be fun to start a weekly blog feature highlighting LOLz that have a touch of feminist politics to them (and the usual adorable hilarity, of course). We made these ones, but what we really want is for YOU (that's right, we're talking to you) to send us your own feminist LOLz so that we can feature them on the blog each week. Just go to the LOL builder and send your creations to us via the blog tips page. We know you've got some adorable animal pics floating around that are just begging for a feminist caption! Some examples:
Awww, who could resist passing gay marriage legislation after seeing this photo?
And this puppy is just stating what we've all been thinking, isn't she?
Do you think that the person who came up with the "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" slogan ever consulted the fish about it?
Have a great weekend, and send us your LOLz so we can post them here next week!
Like a feminist moth to a vapid, materialistic flame, I am drawn to Gossip Girl. I know it's kind of ridiculous, but sometimes I like that in a television show. Besides, I think they push the envelope in a positive way from time to time when it comes to sexuality and gender politics. (Right? RIGHT?!?) However, even the Gossip Girl fan in me did a double take when I saw this Rolling Stone cover:
Whoa! I know Gossip Girl has built an audience based on taboo sexiness, but this two-girls-one-cone shot (done in a decidedly Dov Charney porno style) is a bit much. Is it just me, or have Misses B and S (with the direction of Rolling Stone, of course) gone a bit far in the name of teen sex appeal? Is this a feminist display of women's sexuality, or young girls being exploited as objects of a creepy male gaze?
Read on for a discussion of this cover and subsequent photo shoot, and to add your thoughts!
