sexism

Alert HNTP tipster Niki P. has reminded us July is not the dead zone of professional sports we claimed it was yesterday. Women play sports too, and seeing as it’s the 15th anniversary of Brandi Chastain scandalizing America by revealing her sports bra, we think it is appropriate to devote this session of Man Time […]

Jon Stewart gets at the very important issue of sexism in politics with “breaking news from the inside of another human being” — that is, Chelsea Clinton’s Politically Meaningful Baby, the grandchild that could make all the difference for Hillary Clinton’s possible campaign, or be completely meaningless — except to Darrell Issa, who “has already […]

Exclusive Drudge Sirens Must Credit Wonkette: So here is Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions mansplaining the President’s budget to the President’s Budget Director, OMB chief Sylvia Matthews Burwell. He is very very unhappy that the budget request includes an additional $56 billion over the compromise agreement passed back in December. Despite Sessions’s indignant tone, it’s not […]

Once more to the pending comments queue, dear Wonkers, and let’s just see what has piled up for you. We have this, from terribly upset person “Sundaymorningg,” in reply to that article we did when Michelle Malkin noticed that Michelle Obama wore a designer dress to the State Dinner for French President Francois Hollande. Sundaymorningg […]

Somehow, it’s hard to focus on sportsball’s magnificent athleticism when it seems like there are always stories about athletes doing murder — ALLEGEDLY — and raping women across America — ALLEGEDLY — and domestic violencing the ladies and all manner of breakin’ the law. All of that somehow gets a pass because SPORTSBALL, while Richard […]

Time for another plunge into the ol’ comments queue, and the good news is that we just got a new shipment of industrial-strength rubber gloves! Our first missive comes from wannabe art director “rogerinorlando,” whose name and location we will not release. Rogerinorlando was not pleased by DDM’s choice of graphics for a recent story […]

Leering homunculus Patrick Howley saw a link to a social science abstract somewhere (no, Mr. Howley, do not try to convince us that’s from your casual reading) about this study that seems to confirm that, yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as an “objectifying gaze” — and decided, based on absolutely nothing in the […]

And it’s another day in the Sarah Palin Got A Book Out Y’all tour of network teevee. What can we learn from her dulcet tones and gentle murmurs today? First, would it shock you to learn that Sarah Palin said a Thing, and it was True, and Correct? No, we mean it. Might wanna take […]

HuffPo reports that these buttons were for sale at a “VIP reception area” at a California Republican Party convention this weekend. The San Francisco Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci tweeted the photo and noted that the display had been removed at a later point. Keep working on that outreach to women, Republicans! And remember to dust off […]

Yet another brave GOP congressman who voted to stop paying all the nonessential “little people” — Congress is, of course, “essential” — went on the teevee to splain himself, and boy, did he ever! Blah blah blah, said he, it would send the wrong message to not grift up every last taxpayer dollar while fighting […]

You know how men are the real victims of domestic violence and rape and sexism and discrimination and everything else? Hey, stop laughing, it’s true! It says so on some websites created by men for men. It is a FACT that since creation, women have ruled everything and forced the weaker sex — men, obviously […]

Bitches, man. Always thinking of themselves, always putting their own ambitions first. Don’t you just hate that? Don’t you just despise the way women are always ruthlessly promoting their own careers, never thinking of others, never giving of themselves, never – Oh fuck it, we can’t even finish that fake sentence. Let’s just get to […]

Hey ladies! Are you looking to go to college, Lean In, and really get ahead in this world? Perhaps you are from a predominantly Muslim country and you are trying to break glass ceilings over there so we don’t have to break glass ceilings over here, something something mixed metaphors. Well, if you are one […]

Perhaps you’re aware of the Most Depressing Thing on the Internet, Slate’s running tally of every US gun death since Newtown, which at the time of this writing stood at 4,850 including the six who were killed in Santa Monica in Friday’s ordinary run-of-the mill mass murder spree by a kevlar-clad neo-berserker lunatic. Eleven people […]

Bend over, put your head between your knees, and kiss your ass goodbye, because Gretch, Dooce, and the Rapey One are sticking up for Hussein the Tyrant. There goes the universe! Kabooom!
