I digress. Here's some new information for your ladyissues brain what happened over the weekend. Pantylines!
- Even in "feminist" households, women don't do the majority of the driving when the couple's in the car. [NYT] This is clearly related to the fact that feminism causes women to be drunkards, so the men have to drive.
- Plump lips make women seem younger. [BBC] Things that don't make women seem younger: wrinkles, cellulite, breasts that don't look like rock-hard cantaloupes, did you want the number to a local plastic surgeon or can you get that yourself?
- The increase in women diplomats is called the "Hillary effect." [WaPo] Just don't call it "steps toward equality" or "finally starting to give women some interesting positions of power," because then it won't be a bizarre anomaly that we can go back on at any time if the boys get scared.
- Speaking of Hillary, watch her moving and powerful speech on the state of women's health and reproductive freedom that she gave on Friday. [C-Span] It will make you want to slap a #firstworldproblems hashtag on every single thing you do.
