Thursday, March 15, 2012

0 Comments

This week’s Doonesbury comic¬†(in five installments over the course of the week) is taking a harsh, satirical look at how Republican legislation all across America (specifically in Texas) is undermining women’s reproductive rights — and many papers are either refusing to run it at all or else moving it to their editorial pages.

Thursday, October 13, 2011

0 Comments

A few weeks back we found ourselves at a county fair witnessing the live birth of a calf (as one does).

This week, Regretsy had a whole slew of vagina-focused merch highlighted, including (but not limited to) vulva jackets and vajewelry. But there’s a lot of crap out there that takes time to get on the fail blog of Etsy — right now, we’re waiting for a snarky entry on this Victorian erotica embroidery (three words [...]
