Stupid Sex Tricks: Wear it, (over)share it

When I first saw the headline for this Glamour piece, I have to admit, my mind jumped to all kinds of dystopian conclusions: Love-gloves with a built-in nanochip that automatically activates when the rubber gets used, and spills all the dirty deets of your deed to a breathlessly waiting Internet?

Stupid Sex(ist) Tricks: Why I will never be a vegan

Aside from the serious health concerns they blithely neglect to mention in their quest to turn the whole world vegan, PETA also engages in false, deceptive and highly offensive advertising that’s downright abusive to women: There is so much wrong with this ad.

Stupid Sex Tricks: When sex doesn’t sell beer

Okay…I have to admit, I thought this was very clever at first. A sexy beer ad that objectifies…MEN, for a change? Now, tell me what exactly is wrong with this picture. Can you see it? Look closely…between the “legs”. (If you said “brewer’s droop”, you win the Internets.)
