Last night, my roommate, my boyfriend and myself sat in our small apartment watching the 2014 Grammy Awards. Since we were liveblogging the red carpet, I watched approximately two hours of pre-show red carpet footage, so by the time the … More
Lad mags are trashy porn magazines that are frequently sold in family grocery stores, with names like Nuts and Zoo. They’re like The Economist of degrading women. More
Oh, and in case you were wondering, she started “from the bottom” and worked her way up so she could appropriate tragedies without doing it “for the money,” guys. More
Sure, the ads of Beyonce for H&M are a bit risque, but why are people attempting to censor the photos themselves? More
Remember that silly mother in Detroit who wanted The Diary Of Anne Frank banned in schools because it contains descriptions of female genitalia that might be disturbing to students, as opposed to the rest of the things in that particular book? Of course you do. Well, we have obtained the objectionable passage, which comes from the new and unedited edition of Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. More

I all of a sudden have an urge to play the Vagina Game. You know, it’s like the Penis Game, but with vaginas. More
So Madonna has gone and made a controversial music video called “Girls Gone Wild,” directed by fashion power photogs Mert & Marcus. What’s so provocative about it that you need to enter you birthdate (psh) to watch it on YouTube? …Dudes dancing. Dudes kind of rubbing on each other. To this we say: what the shit? Banning used to mean something and–back in the day when music videos were shown on television–it had tangible consequences. Now, we’re sure “family activist” groups are worried that watching this Madonna video will turn you gay (which we’ve tried; it doesn’t work!), but there’s absolutely nothing edgy or frightening or upsetting here (or even interesting!). Let’s visit some music videos that really earned the shit storm they stirred up.
(And a note on the safety of watching these at work after the jump) More

If there’s anything Jennifer’s brilliant analysis has taught us, Rihanna’s perfume Reb’l Fleur is nothing if not morally upright. Hers is a smell that says it’s okay to be a rebellious little flower, but if you give into your bad self too much, you will be trapped in a commercial full of mirrors, enemies, and confusing imagery. Hence, it comes as somewhat of a surprise that the equally virtuous country of Kuwait would accept it with anything less than totally open arms. More
You might call me the accidental pussy faggot. An independent performance curator and producer based in Brooklyn, I have presented hundreds of events over the past 7 years, most with a queer sensibility. However, I never imagined that a performance-driven party called PUSSY FAGGOT! would end up being one of my signature projects. I didn’t realize the term would resonate so strongly with so many people, but I suppose I could have guessed it would put me at odds with Facebook. More
TV has long been a place to break new ground or talk about social issues. However, network TV has long been more staid than its cable counterparts. Think about it – True Blood gets away with all kinds of sexual acrobatics … More
The Melbourne International Film Festival was supposed to screen a movie called L.A. Zombie, but, sadly, censors rejected the film. Why? Because it’s a gay porno about zombies. While that sounds pretty much like my dream movie, some people seem … More
