Melissa Bachman Murders Endangered African Lion for Sport & Fun

Melissa Bachman is a huntress, slayer of defenseless animals and seems to enjoy it a little more than most. The Minnesota-based television personality and big-game hunter’s photo of herself posing with an African lion she’d killed in South Africa goes viral just as conservationists warn that the big cats could be gone from the wild in the next decade. 75 percent of the wild lion popula... »

Richard Cohen’s Throwing Up in His Mouth Over You and Your Biracial Children

Yesterday, I had an article come across my tread about Richard Cohen, a writer for the Washington Post, who declared… Today’s GOP is not racist, as Harry Belafonte alleged about the tea party, but it is deeply troubled — about the expansion of government, about immigration, about secularism, about the mainstreaming of what used to be the avant-garde. People with conventional views must repress a g... »

Good Girls & Double Standards: The Whore/ Virgin Dilemma

Dear Preston Waters, I read your piece about good girls today being as illusive as the unicorn; non-existent. I hope you are wrong. I am a unicorn who is currently raising two unicorns (as you call them). I am teaching them to have respect for themselves and do what makes them happy in life. Life is too short to live by other people’s rules; especially when the rules are not clear and ever changin... »

Happy Halloween~ No Treat for You Fatty! Throat Punch Thursday

Tonight is Halloween. Kids wait for this one day the other 364 days of the year. What would you do if tomorrow night your sweet little girl went up to a neighbor’s house trick or treating and instead of getting a treat, she got sized up by the neighbor and the neighbor handed her a letter explaining that she has surmised your child to be obese and you are a shitty parent for letting her get that w... »

What Happens When the Teacher Isn’t Paying Attention & Your Child Gets Hurt?

I don’t usually complain about my kid’s school. In fact, I mostly love their school. If you have children in a parochial school you already know this but kids who attend parochial just seem to consider consequences of actions more than the average kid. Our children’s education is based on a foundation of charity, family and faith. Kindness, compassion and respect for others is reinforced in the cl... »

Martha Stewart, bloggers

I think Martha Stewart Might Hate Bloggers but I’m No Expert

My Throat Punch Thursday this week goes to the lady with the disdain for the bloggers who work for her, Ms. Martha Stewart herself. You, my friends, are no experts and Ms. Stewart has a gripe about that. Well, I have a gripe with Ms. Martha Stewart and her condescending attitude towards bloggers and it all stems from this direct quote she gave in an interview. “Who are these bloggers? They’re not ... »

Her Name is Not FAT AMY, it’s Rebel Wilson & Her Weight’s None of Your Business

Let me start by saying that I think Rebel Wison is the tits. She is hilarious, gorgeous, brave and in your face. Brave because there is no topic she won’t take on. But still, as a woman, our bodies make us vulnerable and criticism is like kryptonite. No matter how hard you try to ignore the commentary outside of your head, the one inside is always worse. She is by far one of my favorite youn... »

Bitch Better Have My 300 Sandwiches-Throat Punch Thursday

Stephanie Smith, beautiful, seemingly intelligent, New York Post writer and author of 300sandwiches.com blog is on a mission to create 300 sandwiches for her gourmet wannabe Alexander Skarsgard lookalike boyfriend.(Shame on you Stephanie for even saying that.) Apparently, before he ever even gets his lazy ass out of bed he likes to ask her how why hasn’t she made him a sandwich? Yeah, a fuck... »

The French Ban Beauty Pageants & It’s About Time

French Government bans beauty pageants. So, looks like I might be moving to France! Don’t fret. I am raising girls and trying to raise them to value themselves on more than just what they look like and the size of their asses so a move may be inevitable. The French Senate voted early Wednesday to ban beauty pageants for children under 16 – and to impose up to two years in prison and steep fines of... »

Nina Davuluri, Miss America, Indian-American, Racism in the United States

Nina Davuluri was Crowned Miss America & if that Bothers You, You Might be a Racist!

I was going to write a post about my girls today, instead I am writing about Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, winning Miss America. Why? Because apparently racism is running rampant and it demands to be discussed so that our children know better. People are very ignorant and say awful things when hiding behind a computer. This story affects me and my daughters. We come from a culturally diverse backg... »
