This Week in Misogyny

Oh, dearies, it was another week of fuckery in the world. Between Rolling Stone throwing a source under the bus when inconsistencies rose in her story (cue gloating from the “false accusations!!1!” crowd), a misguided storyline on The Newsroom, and the usual assortment of random awfulness, it’s hard to see the good news. Of which there’s a little bit, partially in the form of Legos. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny

This Week in Misogyny is One Big Pile of Shit

Buckle up, everyone, it’s about to get rough up in here. Hobby Lobby went before the Supreme Court this week, so that could really suck if the court sides with them.

Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: Divorced Women are Damaged Goods, Right?

Here we go again. This time, Dr. Laura answers the question that has been burning in all of our minds: how damaged are the damaged goods that are the result of a divorce? Answer: Damaged.

The question: I lost my wife to breast cancer three years ago, and I’m ready to find a new love in my life. It seems that a woman who has been divorced may not know, or care to know, how to make a man happy, and perhaps only dating widows gives me a better chance at being happy. What do you think?

Takedown: Broken Marriages are Meant to be Fixed

Ooh, this week’s takedown is a perfect combination of bullshit nostalgia and judgmental shaming, wrapped in a saccharine sweet packaging. The kind of awful that you feel bad pointing out that it is awful, because shucks, the crapdate poster just wants everybody to love everybody else.
