The Morning After: I’m Not A Feminist But Edition

* NOM's hetero-happy summer bus tour will be shadowed by counter-events organized by Freedom to Marry. The marriage rights group will  respectfully disagree with NOM's "one man, one woman" message at every stop the NOM bus makes.

Last week, I wrote a guest post for ladyblog BFF Tiger Beatdown on the many break-up songs of the Magnetic Fields.

Real World D.C. Hook-Up Round-Up, Episode 3: Too Fat For Playboy Edition

Yes, "too fat for Playboy" actually constitutes a full episode's arc on this show. This week's episode of the Real World D.C. was the Very Special Body Image Edition.
