Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: It’s called commitment

I’m not sure if this is a new thing for Dr. Laura or if she’s always been big on broadcasting her disgust of fat people, but this week, again, she’s got the solution for obesity. Hint: it isn’t “love yourself as you are.” This taken from her “call of the day” page. Lynn: What do […]

Takedown: Thank you, Ann Romney

There has been a lot going around the internet these past few weeks regarding the conventions. I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to most of it, because I think that the conventions are little more than unpaid advertisements for either side and while the speeches can be inspiring, there isn’t much new. This […]

Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: Help, I am fat!

Okay, biiiig trigger warning for fat shaming, because I know you all might expect Dr. Laura to be not-an-asshole, but you’re wrong! This is one of her calls of the day, from her website.

Takedown: Democrats want to take my money

There is a theme these days in Republican hype, one that seems to be taken at face value by millions of people, and yet has no basis in reality. It is this: Democrats (specifically Obama) want to take everything that you have earned and pass it around to people who do nothing. It’s not a […]

Takedown: Press 1 for English

This week’s crapdate is a sleeper hit. I have seen the sentiment floating around for, well, probably for as long as there have been Internet memes. It’s the ol’ “I hate pressing buttons” problem.

Takedown: Deport Them All!

Full disclosure: I’m married to an immigrant. One who “did it right.” I guess that according to this week’s crapdate, he is marginalized by those who are here without documents, and I should probably be really angry. Why are they ruining it for us? (But I’m not. Weird, right?)

Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: My Brother’s Relationship Cheapens My Marriage

Just when I thought Dr. Laura wasn’t going to say anything terrible this week, she came through for me. Attagirl, Dr. Laura. Dr. Laura’s remarks are embedded in brackets within the question, and her answer is below it.

Takedown: Like this!

Oh, the Nice Guyâ„¢. You know the type. “Why do women always go for the jerks, why don’t they go for Nice Guys like meeeee?” The Nice Guy syndrome is problematic in and of itself (like people should be rewarded for their kindness with sex), but this crapdate takes it to the next level.

Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: Is it okay to decline marital sex?

Oh, boy oh boy. Oh boy. Here goes (question taken from Dr. Laura’s YouTube channel):

Takedown: Bingo Was Its Name-O

Everybody loves a good game of bingo, right? Just because somebody is racist and classist (among other things) doesn’t mean they can’t play along. At least, that’s what this crapdate poster wants you to believe.

Takedown: The five best sentences EVER

I hope you are ready for the best reading experience of your lives: this week’s Takedown promises to deliver the five best sentences you will ever read. This is technically true, if you have never read any other sentences and never intend to; otherwise, it’s your standard issue crapdate.

Takedown: Father’s Day is So Confusing

Hey there! It turns out that even if you flee the country and move to an apartment that is 10 miles from the nearest indoor toilet, crapdates keep rolling in. They never take a vacation.

Takedown: Wife Her

Ugggggh. There are few things that make me grimace like woman-on-woman hate, or something that is clearly designed to pit women against each other. I always wonder about the person who created the picture in the first place – I have a sneaking suspicion they are created by women looking for a boost to their own […]

Dr. Susan vs. Dr. Laura: Minority Studies are Ruining Kids’ Lives

Is Dr. Laura trolling me? A recent blog post, titled “U.S. Youth: Working Hard or Hardly Working?”, was what you might expect from Dr. Laura. La la la, kids are lazy, parents don’t expect enough out of their kids, society is falling apart. Same old, same old. And, truth be told, there’s nothing particularly offensive […]

Takedown: Won’t Somebody Think of the Privileged?

I’ve been getting too angry at my computer screen lately, so this week’s takedown is something that made me burst out laughing when I saw it. I mean, sure, it’s still craptastic, and there is a lot to talk about, but – well, you’ll see. It’s funny.
