  • A Brief Guide To The NSFW History Of Penis Art

    A Brief Guide To The NSFW History Of Penis Art Back in March, while everyone was celebrating the triumphs of the ladydom, we gave you an overview of the art world's apparent obsession with vaginas in the name of art, culture, feminism, etc, etc.Since we're equal opportunists, we'd like to present you another brief explanation of artists' fascination with our naughty bits. This time, we're going to talk about peen! Why's that? Hasn't the male sex organ received enough attention? Because the patriarchy? Because male privilege? Because it's hilarious to draw all over your friend's anthropology notes in college?Perhaps. But we're going to do it anyway, because art, culture, feminism, etc, etc. To understand this wholly academic topic, we've got to go back in history and wrap our heads around[…]

  • Jenny McCarthy Regrets Hillary Clinton Gay Joke

    Jenny McCarthy is having second thoughts about a recent joke she made regarding Hillary Clinton's sexuality. Last week on "The View," McCarthy and her co-hosts were discussing Ronald Kessler's new book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents, which claims Bill Clinton has a mistress nicknamed "The Energizer." McCarthy then suggested Hillary Clinton might be a lesbian, saying Bill and Hillary could have some sort of marital "arrangement.""Well, maybe he has his girlfriends and she has her girlfriends, you never know," McCarthy added, smiling. "Maybe they have an arrangement."On Friday, however, she backtracked in a blog post titled "Anti-Gossip Girl" for the Chicago Sun-Times' Splash Chicago. She claimed she uses jokes while on "The[…]

  • California: Tax and minimum wage increases leads to rising economy

    California: Tax and minimum wage increases leads to rising economy What happens when a state implements modest tax increases, raises minimum wage and embraces Obamacare?Conservatives won't be happy to learn the truth.Paul Krugman for the New York Times:If tax increases are causing a major flight of jobs from California, you can’t see it in the job numbers. Employment is up 3.6 percent in the past 18 months, compared with a national average of 2.8 percent; at this point, California’s share of national employment, which was hit hard by the bursting of the state’s enormous housing bubble, is back to pre-recession levels.On health care, some people — basically healthy young men who were getting inexpensive insurance on the individual market and were too affluent to receive subsidies — did face premium[…]

  • Judge Strikes Down DC's Handgun Ban

    A federal judge has ruled that Washington DC's ban on openly carrying firearms in unconstitutional. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin is the latest in a protracted fight over gun laws here. In 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision striking down the city's 32-year-old ban on handguns. Since then, the city has rewritten its laws, lawsuits have been filed and even Congress has waded into the fight. In a decision made public Saturday, Judge Scullin concluded that the Second Amendment gives people the right to carry a gun outside the home for self-defense. He cited two U.S. Supreme Court cases as important to his ruling—the 2008 opinion striking down the District of Columbia's ban[…]

  • Jenny Lewis Doesn't Want To Be An 'Old Little Girl'

    Jenny Lewis Doesn't Want To Be An 'Old Little Girl' Jenny Lewis lives in California but her home is somewhere deep in the cosmos. Thirty-eight years old, with a lifetime of memories already in her past, Lewis now operates with the universe in mind. A few different careers and battles with insomnia and grief have taken her a long way away from the being the child actress who traded mix tapes with Corey Haim. For a while, she was best known for roles in "Troop Beverly Hills" and "Golden Girls." Then she became an indie music darling as the frontwoman for Rilo Kiley and singer with The Postal Service. As a solo artist, her first two albums were anthems to millennials who were just a little too young (and cool)[…]

  • FLORIDA: Majority Of GOP Orange County Commissioners Back Marriage Equality

    Via the Orlando Sentinel: A majority of Orange County commissioners have voiced support for gay marriage after activists questioned the Republican-dominated board about its stance last week before Florida's courts settle the issue. Three of the pro-gay-marriage commissioners are Republicans: Jennifer Thompson, Scott Boyd and Pete Clarke. Democrat Tiffany Moore Russell also strongly endorsed same-sex marriage rights. "I truly believe everybody has a God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," Clarke said. "We're there to do right by our citizens." When asked for her stance on the issue, County Mayor Teresa Jacobs issued a statement. Jacobs said she had read the Miami lawsuit challenging Florida's gay-marriage ban and "believe[s] that a very strong case was made." However,[…]

  • One Million Moms Vs Guinness Beer

    Just in via email: Joe, Guinness & Co. is currently airing a commercial for its beer with a popular gospel hymn as background music. The song "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" is played during the entire ad and even though there are no lyrics it is unmistakably the beloved hymn Christians know and love. The cherished "Everlasting Arms" hymn has no place in a beer commercial. Christian music should not be associated with an advertisement promoting drinking. The choice of including this hymn in the ad disrespects the Christian faith. Take Action: Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Guinness & Co. to change the background music in their "Empty Chair" commercial. Ask that they no longer use a hymn[…]

  • TRAILER: Mad Max: Fury Road

    IO9 raves: Now you can see first Mad Max: Fury Road trailer, unveiled yesterday at Comic-Con, with your own eyes. It's full of gorgeous deserts, blooming smoke bombs the color of bruises, and a giant dust storm that looms over the landscape like a terrestrial tsunami. Dystopia has never looked so desolate and fascinating. This is the kind of trailer that emphasizes mood and setting over plot, but that's important — Max Max has become its own subversive style in the years since the first movie came out in the late twentieth century. We hear Max's voiceover briefly, we know he's mad, and we see that some desert punk gangs have taken him prisoner and made Tom Hardy wear his[…]

  • New York Times: Legalize Marijuana

    From the editorial board of the New York Times: It took 13 years for the United States to come to its senses and end Prohibition, 13 years in which people kept drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens became criminals and crime syndicates arose and flourished. It has been more than 40 years since Congress passed the current ban on marijuana, inflicting great harm on society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol. The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana. We reached that conclusion after a great deal of discussion among the members of The Times’s Editorial Board, inspired by a rapidly growing movement among the states to reform marijuana laws. There are no perfect answers to people’s[…]
