    French journalist from the TV show “Le Petit Journal” interviewing an Obama supporter during the presidential campaign:

    - What is LGBT?
    - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender.

    - It’s something you stand for?
    - Yeah, sexual minorities, sexual preference minorities, since Obama is for them, I’m for him.

    - You think it’s important?
    - Yes. Everyone should — no matter who they love — should be equal.

    - How old are you?
    - I’m eleven.

Amazon kindly reminding us that while men put their heads into business and politics, women sit at home baking and looking at cute animals.

Major fail. I relate to the “For Him” list way more than the “For Her” list. Business, political, and science fiction books are my besties. Oh, and I <3 comics.

I don’t know if you’ve seen this before, but I just saw it on facebook and thought it would be relevant to this blog (though we all know Hollywood only bothering to hire PoC when they need bad guys isn’t news)
To be honest, I was surprised to see this on facebook because most of the people know think I’m a ‘reverse-racist’ and too sensitive, I can only hope that this is progress.

    Anderson: On the red carpet for the Oscars last year you changed your look… kind of and it seemed to flip people out. People were writing about this, blogging about this. And Gabby at the Olympics recently, when she did really well I saw people commenting about her hair and stuff. I just thought it really odd that people notice this so much. Do you find it strange that people comment on how you appear so much?

Natina Reed (the girl on the far right) was a member of the Left Eye founded R&amp;B group, Blaque. But most remember her from Bring It On, as one of the Clover cheerleaders. 
She was killed yesterday during a hit &amp; run while walking across a street in Atlanta.
R.I.P. Natina Reed :( 

She wasn’t killed during a hit and run. She was hit by a car, but the driver stayed at the scene. Associated Press says:


The Gwinnett County Police Department said in a news release Sunday that the 32-year-old Reed was hit late Friday while in the roadway at an intersection on U.S. 29 near Lilburn.


Police say the driver called 911 for help, and someone tried to revive Reed on the scene. She was later pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center.


It’s unclear why Reed was in the road. Police say the driver wasn’t at fault and won’t be charged.

  12. It is disgusting. We are told to love sex but never masturbate or fool around. To love our bodies but we have to be hairless, thin, have boobs, and to never wear make up to cover our flaws. We can like sports and watch them but we can’t play them unless they are toned down and pretty enough to be oggled at. We can be nerds but we can’t be TOO smart or we forget our place. We are told we need a prince charming and to seek him out by constantly changing ourselves and being perfect for him. We are given the message that outside beauty is what matters the most but if we have it and get successful it was because we have a pretty face. We are told we exaggerate and should just go with it when we complain of being objects and property. We are taught that being a woman is worthy of an insult… WE have to fear walking at night. WE have to go in a group if we need to use the bathroo

    Michele Smith Became The First Female Analyst For A National Baseball Broadcast Yesterday. Here’s How Viewers Reacted.

    TBS broke unprecedented ground Sunday when they put analyst Michele Smith in the booth alongside Ernie Johnson and John Smoltz for their broadcast of the Dodgers-Braves game. It’s the first time a woman has ever served in the commentary role for a national MLB broadcast, and is one of a handful of breakthroughs in a summer that marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of Title IX.

    Smith won two Olympic gold medals as a softballer, and is a member of the Softball Hall Of Fame. She’s certainly an expert on softball, having served as one of ESPN’s chief announcers for the sport, and testing her out for an MLB broadcast was an interesting idea. (It’s also one announced with surprisingly little fanfare; we only learned of the broadcast today.) Here’s baseball blogger William Tasker’s take:

    She also knew what she was talking about. Her insights were usually spot on. The one awkwardness of the entire broadcast was the incessant pandering of the two men on the broadcast team to talk about or bring up Smith’s softball exploits. Such pandering was probably meant to make Smith as comfortable as possible, but it also gave the impression that such comments were needed to justify Smith’s existence on the broadcast. From a personal standpoint, during a broadcast, the less said about the broadcaster the better. Concentrate on what is going on in the field.
