​Why Is There Poop on My Thong? An Investigation →

So everyone saw this, right? I swear I read this exact article back in 2002. Next up: “Your Uggs Smell Terrible And What To Do About It”

Offffff course.

Jezebel has always been about making middle-classed white girls feel good. Who cares if it’s at the expense of the workers who have to clean that shit up, amirite galz?

So a girl gets harassed, and knocks over some personal property of the guy that was harassing her.  She goes home, tells her dad, and he comes back to confront the dude that was harassing his daughter.

During the confrontation, he knocks the harasser to the ground and punches him in the face. 

The harasser, then pulls a knife, stabs the guy 7 times in the abdomen and neck and puts him in the hospital.

Go on Jezebel comenters, now that I’ve taken the context out of that particular story for you, and keep defending the guy that stabbed someone 7 times.  About how the dad “started it” so he got what was coming to him.  Go on now.

But answer me this one question, who brings a knife to protest an abortion clinic? 

Someone who is willing to stab someone who upsets him enough, that’s who.

Good. Lord.

OK, not condoning the father for punching someone like that. But bowiecadmium is right: why would you bring a knife to a protest?

Pointless

I don’t read or comment on Jezebel or Gawker these, but I happened to wander over today.

I felt compelled to heart some people I follow on Tumblr.

Even though I don’t read or comment on Jezebel or Gawker these days.

This has been a post.

Thylane Blondeau is 10 years old. 10 years old.

The past 20 years or so have made it clear that the fashion industry hates women and idealizes and sexualizes childishness. I guess casting actual children to pout and pose in couture was the next ‘logical’ step.

I’m disgusted at Jenna Sauers for praising editorials featuring Blondeau as “refreshing” and Jezebel for publishing the post (and no, I’m not going to link the post to give them more traffic. They’re trash.). There is nothing satirical about these pictures. The girl is styled, posed, and photographed exactly as if she were a decade older.

I’m glad Feministe criticized the Jezebel piece and offered actual feminist analysis of the story:

….Blondeau has no reason to know anything about being sexy. She has no frame of reference for sexy–she knows look at me, turn this way, point your chin down, open your mouth just a little, look bored, open your eyes, close your eyes, now arch your back, now look sleepy. And while it’s definitely a sign of too sexy too soon, it’s also a sign of… obedience.

And that’s one of the real values of younger models over their older counterparts. An 18-year-old can, with an appropriate application of diet pills and cigarettes, present the body of a twelve-year-old. But if you want a biddable girl who doesn’t know enough to speak out against things that she isn’t comfortable with, you need someone inexperienced in the ways of the industry, awed and a little bit afraid. And maybe ten years old is a bit early for that, but just a few years down the road, her fellow models are going to be wandering into the lions’ den.

[…]

We talk a lot about the choices we make in the way we outwardly present our feminism…..And we talk about modeling feminism for the girls who are coming after us to help guide them in a positive direction. As part of that, we need to make sure we’re sending a strong message about disobedience. Our girls need to know that while they do have to play a respectful part in the social contract, they also have the right to stand up for themselves when they feel the need, even if it’s against authority figures. Even if it’s against their friends. Even if it’s against us.

There’s no guarantee that they won’t still end up walking runways somewhere, if that’s their choice. But if they’re comfortable turning down that job because the clothes don’t feel right, turning down that guy (or girl) because the timing doesn’t feel right, or even just passing on that cigarette with Agyness Deyn because frayed, acid-washed denim vests just plain aren’t right, we’ll have done our job…..

YOU. ARE STILL. PETITE.

Never forget, y’all.

Here you go, squeegee!

And for those of you who weren’t commenters on Jezebel, enjoy!

I’m going to create an interpretive dance/spoken word piece about my belly.

The shame of waistband imprints! The agony of sit-ups! The horrors of the jiggly muffin top! Art is the only thing that will ease my pain!

Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.

Is that petite gal (whatever her name is) commenter going to blow a gasket? →

nunmoreblack:

btw, once I vented some frustrations in groupthink about being tall, and she responded with this long winded thing about heightism. I wanted to smack her.

DON’T YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS FOR HER TO BE THIN AND SHORT? COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING TALL JUST REMINDS HER OF HER OPPRESSED POSITION IN SOCIETY. YOU’RE THE WORST. 

Ha! Does anyone else remember that YouTube video of her doing an interpretive dance about being short? It was like a parody it was so good.

I’d be really happy if I didn’t have to see anymore dumb fucks wishing bad things on people because of “karma”. 

Besides being badly written and stupid, this comment is also creepy as fuck.

I don’t actually care. I was just looking for an excuse to use this gif

I’m not really sure why I find this comment to be so weird, but I do.

How to make an emergency maxi pad →

1. Make a faux pad out of paper towels (not the brown kind! pointy!)

2. Wrap a shitload of toilet paper around the ‘pad’

3. Wrap a shitload of TP around the pad + crotch of your underwear

4. Waddle around the rest of the day hating life.

Tight, high-waisted, white shorts are fug on everyone but ex-models

In the old days of Jezebel, the editors would have posted an article about defiantly wearing crusty cut-offs because they’re comfortable and easy to make, not advising its readership to spend hours making trendy booty shorts.

Seriously. If you’ve got a convex tummy, a big butt, short legs or any combination of those things, then tiny white shorts are not going to look good on you. I know the ones Jenna made would accentuate my food baby and make me look stumpy as hell. (Not to mention sweaty camel toe)

Bleargh.

Persephone interviews Latoya Peterson →

I love Latoya’s work and was majorly bummed when she left Jezebel (though maybe it was better for her to leave, career- and sanity-wise).
