"Humor": The Ultimate Cop Out

By now, I've imagine that most folks have seen the controversial Sean Delonas cartoon from yesterday's New York Post.

Fists Up: LA Boxing Pres Challenges Chris Brown to a Duel

Anthony Geisler, President of LA Boxing, is dealing with Chris Brown's arrest on criminal threat charges in true eye-for-an-eye fashion.

Whedon Fighters

Breast Feeding: Making Grown Ups Vomit

Any regular follower of mine knows that I am the world’s biggest fan girl for Salma Hayek. She is beautiful, she’s a self-described feminist, she fights to make a place for women of color in general and Latinas specifically in the world of entertainment, AND she’s an advocate of breast feeding!

So what’s the problem here? Apparently, 1) it’s eeew, grooooss...

Social Awareness A Go-Go

Since its inception in 1995, War Child benefits children in war torn areas of the world by working with local organizations to teach skills and spread knowledge to as many people as possible in the hopes to change trends in their countries. In a “teach them to fish” fashion, War Child works in places like Uganda, Iraq and Afghanistan to bring social justice, education and basic necessities to...
