    Miley’s Wrecking Ball

    Picture if you will, my face.  At first it is cautiously optimistic.  My eyes focused intently on the tearful opening of Miley Cyrus’ ballad…Then my brows begin to furrow as she licks a hammer and straddles a giant ball swinging from the ceiling.  All hope is lost as she arches her back completely naked whilst mid swing.

    Why We Should Be Praising Miley Cyrus

    There is no other signifier to the entrance of womanhood than sexuality.  Men have adventure stories where they prove their manliness by climbing mountains and going on deep journeys of self-discovery, and women have their stories of finding a boy and losing their virginity.

    Why I Like ‘Blurred Lines’

    Admittedly that phrase, 'I know you want it', does not exactly give us the idea that there is mutual consent in any of the sexual activity hinted at in the song. But I would liken it to sexual foreplay between consenting adults and leave it at that. It's sexy and suggestive.

    What Can We Learn From Paula Deen?

    While companies — scared to upset anyone — back away, products from Deen’s vast array of collections are selling like pancakes smothered in Deen’s favorite condiment — butter. Deen’s revelation that she, at a time in her life, used a racial slur should come as no surprise to anyone.

    New Obsession! Princesses: Long Island

    And then, I heard something in the middle of the night, a cry coming from somewhere north of me…It was a cry for attention, laced with profanities…And it had a strong Long Island accent.
    Yes my friends.  Bravo has delivered once again.

    Rom-Coms, the Male Gaze & Summer Sex

    So what does it mean that there are no romcoms? Is Hollywood ignoring women’s buying power—despite being the largest movie going audience these days—in an effort to draw out the money of the male population instead?

    Amanda Bynes, Mental Illness, & Ruthless Media

    The media seems to take pleasure in perpetuating the cycle, which is troubling.  Instead of pulling away from a person who is clearly unwell, their breakdown only makes them more desirable, more photo worthy.

    Celebrity Scandals and Why We Need Them

    We have, like it or not, become a society of voyeurs. We love it all and the grittier, dirtier and more scandalous the better. Like  a kid in school who sees another student get in trouble, it somehow feeds the curious beast within us.

    Do We All Have To Be Katniss?

    It appears that, at least when discussing female characters in movies, we are going by the superficial, masculine version of the idea of strength; meaning that strength comes from physical power, aggression, and assertiveness.  Thus a woman who can fight equals “strong” whereas a woman who can’t equals “weak.”
