Avengers Ass-emble!

Because the promos for The Avengers are already showing the sole female Avenger Black Widow in the typical pose of butt and boob shot all in one for male eye candy, artist Kevin Bolk decided to turn it around and have the male Avengers do the same to show how ridiculous these poses really are.  Click "Read more" to compare.

Broomfield Hill: A Historical Analysis

When a guy bets a woman that she won't come back a virgin from visiting Broomfield Hill, what other choice does she have in this bet than to not frak that guy but frak with him while he waits for her in the bedroom, likely naked?

This is the song "Broomfield Hill"/"The Broom Wager"/"Merry Green Broom"/"The West Country Wager"/"Lord John"/"The May Blooming Field".  You can find a version by my favorite band Malinky below.  And read on after the video.

Betty White's Birthday Bash

January 17th, 2012, marks a milestone, not just in Betty White's life, but in ours too.  White has graced us with her brilliance, dity-mindedness, kindness, and grace for 90 years on that very date.  I would like to know, though, will she still be saying she's 88 1/2 or proudly owning up to her 90 years now?  NBC will air her dinner-style birthday party with celebs galore soon after the event.

How Do We Change Them?

My dad just told me, "I'm glad women weren't typically in the military.  They'd be telling you what to do the entire time and make you nervous.  People would end up shot on your own side because of it."  Dear.  God.  He also said a few months ago that women would think too much on the battlefield and wouldn't be able to get the job done.  Okay, Dad, let's generalize a little bit more.  This is proof that tradition and surroundings don't make the next generation.  My beliefs are shaped by my experiences, my knowledge, and my own personality.  I swear my Dad tells em this just to get a rile out of me.  I've refuted him before, and it doesn't change anything.  Nothing changes people set in their ways.  So the question is: How do we change thoughts if they aren't open to it?  How do we open their minds?  I've provided proof of equality, I've declared my feminism, yet here we are: stagnant.  Is all this for nothing?  Is it simply to satisfy our own thoughts?  Progress is female representation in the media, politics, and work is slow-moving.  How can we get equality faster?  What can we do to step it up?
