X(Squared) Episode 2: Why Does the Media Hate Women’s Bodies?

Posted by Natalie on Tue, 21.06.11 at 03:54PM in Celeb relationships In the News Love Self Awareness Sexuality/Health X(Squared)

Twoday's topic on X(Squared): We discuss the unrealistic standard of beauty laid out for us by the media. From having to fit into a size zero, to being called “plus size” for having hips, and disappearing armpits (it’ll make sense in the vlog) we are constantly bombarded with images of women that are just not real. No, literally. There isn’t one image we see that hasn’t been retouched, photoshopped, stretched, pulled and redesigned. So, why do we take these images in as our reality? It’s a recipe that sets us up to fail (and we aren’t going to take it, anymore!)

Hate speech doesn’t get you far in Hollywood...

I’m sure most of you are aware of Tracy Morgan’s recent sexist and homophobic rant that he went on earlier last week while “entertaining” people at a comedy club. Well, his stand-up “comedy” was filled with women-bashing (which, by the way, has been overlooked by the media) and gay-bashing.

Here is a taste of what he said at his show:

Posted by Natalie on Fri, 03.06.11 at 07:38AM in Celeb relationships In the News Self Awareness

Is violence ever justifiable?

Rihanna’s new video ‘Man Down’ is getting a lot of negative attention. The video shows Rihanna shooting the man who sexually assaults her. It is violent, yes, but should it be censored?

What We Can Learn from the Schwarzenegger/Shriver Drama

Because you can find the silver lining...

The New Trend: Push Presents

Posted by Natalie on Mon, 25.04.11 at 10:00AM in Celeb relationships In the News Odd Relationships Sexuality/Health

A guilty pleasure? Or bad for women?

I just read a piece on TheFrisky website (one of my favorites sites) about how the new phenomenon known as the “Push Present” is making women all around the country wonder why their hubbies didn’t give them diamonds after baby. The idea of a “push present” is that the new mommy receives some sort of elaborate gift after “pushing out” her new bundle of joy. The author of the piece worried about the repercussions of such a gift, wondering why the baby wasn’t gift enough.

And, didn’t Sean Penn, 50,  just go through a nasty (and seemingly never-ending) break-up with Robin Wright Penn? And, now, Scarlett and Sean are together? Is this the weirdest Hollywood coupling to happen in a while or do these two crazy kids seem like a good match? Me thinks not.
