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…

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…

All Scientists Are White Men, So Those Black And Latina Ladies Must Be Janitors

TEMPTRESS.
You know what you almost never see in a survey? A 100 percent agreement rate. It just doesn’t happen, unless the sample size is like six ten-year-old boys and the question is “do you find fake fart noises amusing?” And even then you might get one outlier who insists that burps are way funnier. So this is probably significant: Read more on All Scientists Are White Men, So Those Black And Latina Ladies Must Be Janitors…

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…

Phyllis Schlafly Finds Way To Finally Give Men A Fair Shake

When Mother was a girl, men didn't need saving.
The last time yer Wonket visited noted feminist icon and gay-son-having mother of the year Phyllis Schlafly, her noxious Eagle Forum organization was arguing it IS TOO okay for companies to deny paychecks to women who have the utter gall to be both pregnant and employed. Before that, she was explaining that women could avoid a whole lot of that rape and violence stuff if they’d just go ahead and get married, because as Phyllis has explained time and time again (why do you not listen?), it’s not rape if you’ve said “I do” at least once in your life. Then of course, there was that whole incident in the olden times when she pretty much started a riot. Read more on Phyllis Schlafly Finds Way To Finally Give Men A Fair Shake…

Church’s Worst Cardinal Weeps Fat Tears For Men Murdered By Feminism

There’s this Catholic Cardinal — Raymond Cardinal Burke — and he is the worst! New Pope demoted him already, because Burke is a super-dick, but New Pope forgot to tell him to STFU and go die in a fire. How is Burke delighting us with his words today? Well, he interviews with “The New Emangelization” (not kidding) about how “radical feminists” murdered the Catholic Church. Because of course he fucking did. For his next trick, he will probably cover up some child molestations and excommunicate the entire Democratic Party. Oh wait, he already did.

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.

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.

Rachel Maddow Does Science To Rightwing Myths About IUDs (Video)

O'Douls? Possibly the cruellest cut of the whole bit.
Rachel Maddow took a trip to the Man Cave (or the green screen version of one) Wednesday night to debunk a deeply held article of faith about one form of birth control that could be outlawed if Colorado passes its third try at a “personhood amendment.” Abortion opponents also want to ban a whole bunch of contraceptives, and they say that intrauterine devices(IUDs) have to go because they’re abortifacients. They aren’t, but the notion is also near and dear to the heart of Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez. So why the trip to the mancave? Turns out, guys, the IUD is just hell on sperms, as a doctor lady from the University of Colorado Hospital explains in this video. So no, a lady with an IUD in her innards is not a walking abortionplex. Read more on Rachel Maddow Does Science To Rightwing Myths About IUDs (Video)…

We Found You That Double Supersecret Video Of John Kasich Being An Asshat

I can't hear you, I can't hear you, la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Yesterday we brought you the odd story of the Disappearing John Kasich Video, in which we learned that the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s corporate overlords, Northeast Ohio Media Group, (call ’em “NEOMG,” because “Ni! OMG!” is fun to say) had removed a video of its editorial board meeting with Ohio gubernatorial candidates for an endorsement interview.
