‘Science’ Center Teaches Boys Rocketry, Girls Makeup. Internet Certain To Be Pleased. (Updated)

UPDATE: Carnegie Science Center has responded; see end of post. You know what kids love? Kids love science! Science is exciting, and it builds critical thinking skills, and it’s actually more than just a little bit fun if you have an engaging teacher and cool things to do! And if you’re a girl in Pittsburgh, you can actually get your Girl Scouts science badge at the one solitary science workshop that the Carnegie Science Center offers, which is available on just one day, which… hey, what’s the freaking deal here, Carnegie Science Center? Looks like you have loads of science workshops for Boy Scouts at different levels of scouting, and one lousy workshop for girls? Read more on ‘Science’ Center Teaches Boys Rocketry, Girls Makeup.

Veterans Tell Nutsack Eric Bolling What He Can Do With ‘Boobs On The Ground’ Joke

On the sand, at least. Sand is ground, right?
Remember way back at the beginning of the Brand New War, last week, when Greg Gutfield and Eric Bolling had a great big larff over the fact that a lady flew a fighter jet for the United Arab Emirates? Gutfield said that after the lady fighter pilot dropped her bombs, she couldn’t park her plane (Women!), and Bolling asked, “Would that be considered boobs on the ground?” Read more on Veterans Tell Nutsack Eric Bolling What He Can Do With ‘Boobs On The Ground’ Joke…

Hey Little Missy, There’s Nothing Wrong With Mass. Republican’s Outreach To The Gals

They sure love us
Charlie Baker is already in a pretty difficult race, what with being a Republican trying to become governor of Massachusetts. But popular Gov. Deval Patrick isn’t running this year, and the Democratic candidate is A.G. Martha “Campaign? Why?” Coakley, who didn’t exactly ignite passions in her 2010 bid for the Senate. Charlie Baker really would like to do well with women, who are a rather important demographic; problem is, Coakley holds a 20-point lead among the fairer sex. So last week, at a “Women for Charlie” event, when Baker was asked if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should be fired for his bungling of the league’s multiple domestic abuse scandals, he bobbled the answer: Read more on Hey Little Missy, There’s Nothing Wrong With Mass.

Joe Scarborough And His Intern Give Old Dead (And Maybe Rapey) Sen. Inouye A Pass

They just know some things
Yesterday, we had a sad because The New York Times reported that the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye was the unnamed senator who grabbed Kirsten Gillibrand’s stomach and warned her not to lose any more weight, because “I like my girls chubby.” But today, we’re much less worried that the deceased senator from Hawaii and WW II hero was the responsible party. Not because any new information has surfaced, but simply because Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have decided they just don’t believe it, since Daniel Inouye obviously wouldn’t have done that. Thrill as the two MSNBC morning show hosts sift through the evidence: Read more on Joe Scarborough And His Intern Give Old Dead (And Maybe Rapey) Sen. Inouye A Pass…

Why Is Gabby Giffords So Shrill And Emotional About Guns?

Honestly, there has to be some logical explanation of why she's so touchy
We aren’t quite sure we’ve finished throwing up yet in reaction to this Politico piece about that mean bitch Gabby Giffords, who has made some very cruel, unfair ads about the issue of gun control for some reason: Read more on Why Is Gabby Giffords So Shrill And Emotional About Guns?…

John Oliver Goes Deep Inside Miss America (Video)

John Oliver meets Butt Glue
In yet another terrific piece of longform investigative comedy, John Oliver and Last Week Tonight take on the Miss America Pageant, which likes to promote itself as “the World’s Largest Provider of Scholarships for Women.” Obviously, there are two questions here: 1) Is it still 1959? and 2) Really? Miss America provides $45 million of scholarships a year? There’s also the follow-up question of why anyone seeking an academic scholarship needs to know how to keep her swimsuit snug with butt glue.

Was War Hero Daniel Inouye Also That Secret Sexist Senator? NYT Says Yes!

Look, we know you were always looking for a lei...
The New York Times is pretty sure it’s outed the unidentified senior senator who grabbed Kristen Gillibrand’s waist after she’d lost some weight and chuckled, “Don’t lose too much weight now. I like my girls chubby!” According to “people with knowledge of the incident,” it was the late Daniel K. Inouye, who was a kickass war hero, civil-rights supporter and generally badass liberal in the Senate. And also, apparently, a bit on the harassy side. And no, we’re not going to make a “he was a man of his era” excuse for him, because by the time Gillibrand was elected to the Senate in 2008, Inouye certainly had seen the sexual harassment training film once or twice. Gillibrand’s office wouldn’t comment on whether the senator in the book was Inouye, but we’re going to assume — risky, we know — that the Times got it right.

Jon Stewart Astonished Old Senators Who Look Like Balls Could Be Sexists (Video)

He seems pleased with that graphic
Jon Stewart has found the real scandal in the story of the sexist comments aimed at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand by unnamed male colleagues in the Senate. One warned her “Don’t get too porky,” while another grabbed her stomach and said “Don’t lose too much weight now, I like my girls chubby.” With no consensus on No Fat Chicks v. Chubby Chasers, Stewart says, Congress is pathetic: “Even when it comes to shitty sexism, the Senate is gridlocked. They can’t get anything done.” Read more on Jon Stewart Astonished Old Senators Who Look Like Balls Could Be Sexists (Video)…

Phyllis Schlafly Says Just Get Married, Ladies, And End Rape And Violence Forever

Logically consistent since 1964
Veteran riot provocateur Phyllis Schlafly has a simple solution to two problems at once: If women are so all-fired worried about sexual assault and domestic violence, then they darn well better hurry up and get married instead of pursuing a career, since both rape and domestic abuse are caused by women having jerbs. Now, sure, even married men are still animals, but far less so, since a woman’s touch calms them down a whole lot. Schlafly cleared all this up during her weekly radio program last Thursday: Read more on Phyllis Schlafly Says Just Get Married, Ladies, And End Rape And Violence Forever…

John Oliver Has Weird Idea That ‘Equal Pay’ Should Mean Men And Women Get Paid The Same (Video)

Not to be confused with Gibson's follow-up, 'Why Are Jews?'
That wacky immigrant John Oliver went on vacation, but he also left behind some videos! On Monday, Last Week Tonight posted this look at gender inequality in the workplace, and in just seven minutes, takes down a lot of the dumb excuses made for it. To the claim that the pay gap between men and women isn’t really 77 cents on the dollar, Oliver offers this simple and effective analogy: “If someone takes a dump on my desk, the size of the dump is not the issue.” Read more on John Oliver Has Weird Idea That ‘Equal Pay’ Should Mean Men And Women Get Paid The Same (Video)…

France To Abort Everyone For Free Now, Pretty Much

Something seems a little off here...
France is enacting a new abortion law that seems aimed at reinforcing every possible rightwing American stereotype of that country, except perhaps for surrendering in a war: It amends the country’s current law, which allows abortion only if a pregnant women can prove “distress.” The new law also bans any attempt to restrict women from getting information about abortion services. The National Assembly voted in January to change the law, despite the country’s Roman Catholic majority. The Minister for Women’s Rights, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, said during debate that “abortion is a right in itself and not something that is allowed subject to conditions.” Read more on France To Abort Everyone For Free Now, Pretty Much…

Republicans Will Win All The Lady Votes With Exciting New Strategy: ‘Women Be Shopping’

We bet you're just as embarrassed at being reminded of this as we are for remembering it in the first place
OK, ladies, you’d better be ready, because here comes the 743rd Republican effort to convince you that there’s no “war on women” — instead, there’s a War For Women, and the GOP is totes going to win it because it knows what women REALLY care about. And what women really care about is not all that dull boring ‘bortion and contraceptives stuff, but rather the simple realities of everyday life, which does not revolve around your vagina, for godssakes. Which is why, before giving up on everything except maybe trying to pass an immigration bill that the Senate won’t even look at, House Republicans introduced a package of bills Wednesday to make life better for women. Cathy McMorris Rodgers took some time away from lying about Obamacare to explain why ladies are going to finally see that Republicans are their besties forever: Read more on Republicans Will Win All The Lady Votes With Exciting New Strategy: ‘Women Be Shopping’…

Geraldo Rivera Can Suck My 41-Year-Old Dick

Let’s watch Geraldo Rivera open his big, lechy, fleshy mouth, and say some words with it. Some words that may inspire us to a nice soothing morning SHIT-FLIPPING. Did you watch? Of course you didn’t, you are not stupid. Well, the gist of it was a “cute” news hook about some study of Millennials — MILLENNIALLLLLLLLSSSSS!!!1! — and how they all would totes like some “beta” marriages, where they can dip their adorable little pinky toes in the water of commitment and then run back crying to their mommies for a juice box and a diaper change. (Just kidding THIS TIME, Millennials. The only problem we really have with a two-year marriage trial is the stupid Silicon Valley name “beta marriage.” YOU ARE NOT A NEW IPHONE. YOU ARE A PERSON.)

Richard Nixon Didn’t Think Girls Should Cuss Like Common Jews, Rachel Maddow Is On It (Video)

It is no secret that we are totally gay for Rachel Maddow, who thinks that Yr. Wonkette is “profane and wonderful.” And Thursday she was in Full Nerdgirl mode, geeking out over newly-discovered audiotapes from Richard Nixon’s infamous Oval Office recording trove. But in these 1971 recordings, Nixon’s not plotting to cover up Watergate or fulminating about his enemies. Instead, these tapes captured the President having a philosophical chat with Henry Kissinger and H.R. Haldeman about “the gay thing” Nixon insists he’s very tolerant, understands that “They’re born that way,” and then goes on to explain, Read more on Richard Nixon Didn’t Think Girls Should Cuss Like Common Jews, Rachel Maddow Is On It (Video)…

Washington Times: Hillary Clinton Worships Baal Or Zuul Or The Mighty Favog, Probably

This is encouraging! For all of us who wondered how we’ll ever get along come 2017, when a new president means we’ll be starved of “Obama is a muslin” stories, Washington Times columnist Robert Knight is auditioning a new possibility: Maybe Hillary Clinton worships Baal, a generic name for any one of several local deities that the Old Testament had no use for. (Thanks, Wikipedia!) You know, because ‘bortion. Or birth control that people are sure is ‘bortion even if it isn’t.

PepsiCo’s Lady President Has A Mom, And She Is A Dick

PepsiCo’s president is some dumb lady, Indra Nooyi we guess, and she was pretty excited when she got some dumb important job, instead of knowing where her real priorities should lie. (“Family.” “It’s all about family.” Which is in no way a sentiment that brings out the worst vice-cloaked-as-virtue Americans are prone to, the xenophobic us-against-them, or the suspicion of auslaender, or other terrible American traits, no sirree, it does not, and certainly when we see a profile from a man on one dating site or other proclaim that he spends all his time with his family, who are all that matters, we do not run screaming into traffic, not at all.) So, Indra Nooyi, what did your mom think of your job? As we say to our own mother when we want her to know we value our talks, and also we want the long version, “Tell us the long version please!” Read more on PepsiCo’s Lady President Has A Mom, And She Is A Dick…
 

Rick Santorum’s Hobby Lobby Documentary: America’s Gonna Ban Christianity And Go Nazi (Video)

So now that the Hobby Lobby case has established once and for all the sacred right of employers to crack down on rowdy ladyparts, Rick Santorum’s Echolight Studios wants you all to know that they just happen to have a movie in the works that includes a discussion of Hobby Lobby — what excellent timing! One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty is all about how Christianity is under siege and America’s just on the verge of going completely Nazi. And one of the main examples is the Hobby Lobby case, in which brave Christian business owners were brutally oppressed by a government mandate to cover the very birth control that they had already covered until 2012. Now, the whole “religious freedom is endangered” claim doesn’t seem like it’s supported by the fact that Hobby Lobby won the right to tell women to get bent, so we’ll be curious how the movie fits that in. But according to the trailer, the government is coming to cut down all the crosses and wish them into the cornfield.

Hilarious O’Reilly Pal Jesse Watters Gets Dainty Fashionable Boot Up Ass At N.O.W. Convention

Insufferable smugbunny Jesse Watters, who does innovative comedy clips involving record-scratch sound effects for The O’Reilly Factor, scored some major ha-has at the 2014 National Organization for Women (NOW) conference in Albuquerque before he was booted by security for not having a press pass. Get this: he offended one lady by calling her a “gal!” Watters also scored major points against the silly little “feminist” movement by starting the segment with Helen Reddy’s embarrassingly-dated 70’s anthem “I Am Woman,” because come on, do women even NEED an organization anymore? And then he made some hilarious jokes about so-called “War on Women,” asking if any of the ladies at the convention had been wounded, or if he’d be issued a weapon if he signed up, and even asking NOW president Patricia Ireland to feel his manly bicep muscle to see if he’s tough enough to fight. Get it? That there is some high-concept comedy riffing. Why don’t feminists just lighten up and stop being such man-hating sourpusses, huh?
