Bic Sorry For Being A Dic In Sexist South African Ad

Fuck up like an ad agency
So here’s one way to really win the Lady Demographic: On a South African holiday celebrating women’s achievements, Bic, the maker of writing utensils, ran a Facebook post with the empowering message, “Think like a man.” Maybe they should have been even more empowering and changed the slogan to “Think like a male ad executive thinks an empowered woman might think. And show some cleavage, babe.” It’s almost as brilliant a marketing fail as that time the Goldman Sachs gave women at a tech convention a pretty makeup mirrors and nail files.

Relax, Ladies, Donald Trump Will Let Planned Parenthood Treat Your Wherevers

CALL ME MAYBE
So here’s something that might, in a different political year or for a different candidate, actually get Donald Trump in trouble with his Republican supporters: Trump said on CNN Tuesday morning that he would be OK with keeping some federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Not that any of his supporters actually give a rat’s fundament about his “policies” — because he has none, really, other than Making America Great Again, which covers everything. But if anyone on the right wanted to, they might have some fun with this snippet of an interview with Chris Cuomo, where Trump carefully lays out how he’d handle Planned Parenthood: Read more on Relax, Ladies, Donald Trump Will Let Planned Parenthood Treat Your Wherevers…

Chuck C. Johnson Has Thoughts On The Charleston Shootings. They Are Strange And Racist Thoughts.

An homage to B. Kliban's
Since Award-Winning Journalist Chuck C. Johnson got bounced off Twitter a while back, seemingly for good, the man seems to be completely losing it. This of course raises the perfectly reasonable question, “How could you tell?” As Exhibit A, let us present his 4000-plus word rant about the Charleston shootings and why Dylann Roof really shot nine black people dead. Even for Chuck C. Johnson, the new Stupidest Man on the Internet, it’s a specimen of breathtaking stupidity (and also racism). Read more on Chuck C. Johnson Has Thoughts On The Charleston Shootings.

Nobel Laureate Resigns, Just for Saying Girl Scientists Can’t Stop Getting Lady Boners In Lab

TEMPTRESS.
Science is tough, especially for scientist dudes who are just trying to do important experiments but are always getting distracted by all the lady scientists in the lab, breaking down in tears every five seconds, when they’re not falling madly in love with that scientific man brilliance. That used to be a big problem for Nobel Laureate biochemist Tim Hunt, who resigned his position as an honorary professor at University College London for saying this, about lady scientists, at the World Conference of Science Journalists: Read more on Nobel Laureate Resigns, Just for Saying Girl Scientists Can’t Stop Getting Lady Boners In Lab…

Florida Pastor Has A Penis, Like Adam, Moses, Jesus, And All Real Leaders

Male supremacy: An idea whose time may at last be here
Meet Pastor Bill Lytell of the Gospel Baptist Church in Bonita Springs, Florida. He’s got a pretty fab new insight into how God wants things to work: Men should always be the boss of ladies, and not ever the other way around, because of God’s mighty penis and the hefty testicles of Adam, Moses, and Jesus (make no mistake though, they all lived at different times, and therefore their weighty mansacks never touched, so no homo).

Crazy CA Rep. Barbara Lee: Global Warming Will Turn Womenfolk Into Common Whores

What a nut!
So you know how from time to time we have a good laugh at the logic of wingnut politicians and preachers who claim a causal link between two obviously disparate things, like “taking prayer out of the schools led to Sandy Hook” or “Gays, abortion, and the ACLU caused 9/11” — that sort of thing? Well, thank goodness, now the rightwing has an example of a completely insane causal connection being predicted by a Democrat, so we suppose we’d better shut up! You see, California Rep. Barbara Lee has this crazy idea that global warming will turn women into prostitutes! Read more on Crazy CA Rep. Barbara Lee: Global Warming Will Turn Womenfolk Into Common Whores…

Hero Science Man Matt Walsh: Feminists Hate Women, Because Slut Pills Kill

Lyra, you doofus. Bon Bon's a girl... you don't even need those, silly pony...
Matt Walsh, a dingus who writes for Glenn Beck’s Flaming Internet Hole, presents a science-based case against The Pill, which he has discovered is really, really bad for women, because SCIENCE. For one thing, he read a genuine medical study that found “women who took chemical birth control at any point in their lives show a 50 percent higher likelihood of developing a certain type of brain tumor.” That’s scary! Also it means that The Pill lets men have consequence-free sex, while women will all die of diseased brains! Read more on Hero Science Man Matt Walsh: Feminists Hate Women, Because Slut Pills Kill…

Classy Australian Obituary Calls ‘Thorn Birds’ Author Fat, Ugly, National Treasure

Hot priest sex!
So here’s a tip for obituary writers: If you’re writing a big piece on one of your country’s most famous writers, and it’s going to run under the headline “A TRUE NATIONAL TREASURE,” you just might not want to lead off your remembrance by calling said author a plain-looking fatty: Read more on Classy Australian Obituary Calls ‘Thorn Birds’ Author Fat, Ugly, National Treasure…

Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)

To The Management: Please correct this image. I would never use Courier. On second thought, never mind. You'd just replace it with Comic Sans.
Your Wonkette isn’t perfect, lord only knows, and when we err, we seek to make amends. Which brings us to this very important message from our comments queue, from “jrayhawk” (please, no Ray Jay Johnson jokes), who felt that we treated the subject of a recent story quite shabbily. Friday, we ran a story about several important developments in gender relations, including the sad tale of Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT who has pretty much had it with how feminists have criminalized every last aspect of male sexuality. Jrayhawk felt that we failed to give Aaronson an even break because we sided with the mean women instead of with their victim: Read more on Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)…

How Are The Feminists Keeping Men From Getting Laid Today?

Guess he taught that cuni a lesson.
Nothing like kicking off 2015 with a few stories about how bad men have it in today’s modern feminist-dominated world, where men are on the verge of being ruined by all these radical feminists running loose and running everything, but still not doing sex to the Men’s Rights Activists for some reason.

Women In Tech: When Will They Shut Up And Be Men?

Oh jeeze that book. Did we even?
Women in technology continued to be a big problem this week, insisting that somehow the fact that they are women was even noteworthy, AS IF. Let’s start with the genuinely horrible and end with the slightly less horrible, shall we? Read more on Women In Tech: When Will They Shut Up And Be Men?…

Ira Hansen, Your New Favorite Nevada Wingnut, Already Calls It Quits

Goodnight Sweet Dunce
Just after we proclaimed him our favorite new wingnut and looked forward to a 2015 full of brilliantly idiotic quotes and policy positions, Nevada state assemblyman Ira Hansen has announced that he will not become Speaker of the Nevada House of Representatives after all.

Incoming Nevada Speaker Ira Hansen Is Your New Favorite Wingnut

Listen: Nevada Republicans are not interested in your “bipartisanship” or your “getting along” or your “logic and facts.” As soon as they took over the state House, they chose as their new Speaker one Ira Hansen, a gentleman who, according to the Reno News & Review, “doesn’t like blacks, gays, Israel, many Republicans, and most Nevadans[.]” Mr. Hansen got a brief mention in Yr Wonkette earlier this year when he explained that the reason Republicans don’t do so well with younger voters is that the GOP needs to be more firmly conservative on traditional marriage, to catch the wave of anti-gay sentiment among young folks.

Wendy Davis Loses In Texas Despite Apparent Membership In Wu Tang Clan

It's still a great shirt
Wendy Davis attended an election-day event wearing a T-shirt based on the Wu-Tang Clan logo, but the power of the Killa Bees (plus, OK, a pretty lame campaign organization) was not enough to prevail for the newfound hero of Texas women. The next governor of Texas will be Greg Abbott, who will continue the state’s legacy of keeping women in line and not letting the wrong people vote.
