Women Out of the Box

(7) Comments | Posted January 23, 2013 | 12:29 PM

It's been said that nobody puts Baby in a corner. Unless "Baby" is a metaphor for "women" broadly, in which case many of us are putting Baby in a corner -- and a box.

I have a tattoo, but not on my anus. Maria Louise Del Rosario has a tattoo on her anus. Two, as it turns out, though one is apparently over the other, so perhaps that only counts as one. I'm...

Dear All:

I've got a 6 year-old daughter, and I'm worried for her health and happiness, because of what you're doing, and what you won't do. A TV producer called some of you (Estee Lauder, Unilever, Conde Nast, and Hearst amongst others) to talk about The Self-Esteem Act. She got...

Why Beauty Ads Should Be Legislated

My wife and I almost beat-up a six-year-old girl yesterday.

She was a playground bully; pushing, cutting, baiting, and hating all over our kids' happy. And we get all mama bear when our kids' happiness is at stake.

And it is. Not by a six year-old playground tyrant;...
