I failed you guys. I failed you hard. Because I had such a good time drinking and schmoozing at the Village Voice SXSW party on Friday, I neglected to write the blog that Village Voice pays me to write. Moreover, I neglected to post our Friday link-loving, which means you Dolls may have missed out on some of the best of the web for the week.

I will rectify this situation presently. I give you: HD's favorite ladyblogging for the past week! And a couple days. And a few hours.

  • Ke$ha's appropriation of Native American culture continues to be ignorant, lame. [Bitch]
  • Can we please stop pretending beautiful women are ugly? [Feministing]
  • Deuces out, Christiane Amanpour. [Broadsheet]
  • More on how the abortion debate is really about racism, sexism and classism, and not at all about those wee little babies. [Pandagon]
  • If ladies Vajazzle, what do men do ... down there? [Sexist]
  • Hilarious! A remote control that lets you put your lady on mute and switch off her PMS. [Feministe]
  • The SATC2 publicity storm has begun a-brewing. [SheChive]
  • Prom's ugliest dresses for 2010. Plaid! [CollegeCandy]

Would you like to read some ladynews this morning? Morning wood we ever!

Seriously, I decided to post our aftersn00z link love post this morning instead of this afternoon just so I could make that boner pun. I am pretty cool. But cooler than me are the blogs we Dolls love, and here's what we loved on them over the past week:

  • A&F fires Muslim workers for not conforming to style guidlines. [Broadsheet]
  • The history of the wandering uterus. [Sociological Images]
  • Men's sexual health is a feminist issue. [The Sexist]
  • The iPad phone case: this time it is actually a pad. Or something. [GeekSugar]
  • France, where sexual assault is like smoking. [Bust]

Because we're totally over it. Please find here some of our favorite lady links from 'round the net to get you through this long Friday afternoon. (Notably absent: anything to do with Tiger Woods. If you're still interested in that business, the joke is on you.)

Seems everyone north of Waco, Texas got a white weekend, while us Austinites are stuck with rain and sleet and cold bursts of atmospheric hate. Really, weather gods, we couldn't even just have a tiny bit? Sigh. For the first time in a long time, Dallas has something Austin doesn't.

I digress. For the internet has lots of wonderful things, specifically, wonderful things brought to you by our favorite ladyblogs. Here's what we like this week in ladyblog land--hopefully it'll get you through the storm:

  • Men + suspenders = ladyboners [SheChive]

  • Plus-size fashion that's actually fashionable, reviewed [ShapelyProse]

  • Orthorexia, the media's new anorexia [Jezebel]

Scott Fujita, Saints linebacker and badass.
Bon weekend, guys and Dolls and doll-guys and guy-dolls! It's a little early for our afternoon link roundup, but I thought it might be nice for our lady links to have all day to relax in the balmy sun of your clicks. Here's what we loved in ladyblog land this week:

  • "Hey, Seth Macfarlane: rape jokes aren't funny" [Feministing]
  • Sheer sartorial insanity! A dress made of China! Tons 'o pics. [SheChive]
  • Valdosa State posts, then removes, heinously bad rape "prevention" tips from website [The Sexist]
  • Hazing: what's up with that? [College Candy]
  • Amanda Marcotte takes on some of the recent abstinence education news. [Pandagon]
  • Did Michelle Obama say something gauche about her daughters' weight? [Broadsheet]

Is that really you, Lil' Jon?
Probably the biggest news today is that we journalists can officially stop calling Scott Roeder the "alleged" murderer of Dr. George Tiller. It took a jury all of 37 minutes this morning to convict the batshit-misogynist, religious fundamentalist domestic terrorist (I'll say it) of walking into Dr. Tiller's church and shooting him to death. The ending isn't happy, because the entire situation is horrific. But it is something.

Here's what else happened in ladynews this week, full of linky love for HD's favorite blogs:

  • What does objectification mean in a larger--more than sexual--sense? [Pandagon]
  • The rise and fall of (our perception of) Elizabeth Edwards. [Broadsheet]
  • New stats on the link between unintended pregnancy and abusive relationships. [OBOS]
  • Gays not actually interested in being ladies' playthings, akshually. [Lemondrop]
  • American Apparel is lame, Dov Charney is a creep. Commence mockery. [Frisky]
  • What was feminist in the State of the Union? [Ms]
  • Victim blaming becomes ever worse in the case of the alleged rape of a transgender woman. [Sexist]
  • On banning small breasts in Australian pr0n. [Feministing]
  • Grammy drinking game! Careful, the Lady Gaga rules are complicated. [CollegeCandy]
  • How have these male celebs changed over time? Oh, young Leo. We miss you. [SheChive]

  • Jersey Shore casting call photos. Fooorrrrrr ssseeeerrriiiooouuuussssssssss. So good. [SheChive]

  • Fashion's backlash against feminism, a historical perspective. [Pandagon]

It is cold cold cold as balls balls balls (and we know how cold balls are, don't we Dolls?) even down here in Austin, Texas, so read up on your ladynews for the week before bundling up to head home from work.

  • Why telling people your bra color is a pretty stupid way to raise breast cancer "awareness." [TheFrisky]
  • Also asinine: the Economist's take on "new feminism," which soundly and thoroughly misrepresents absolutely everything about who feminists are and what they want. [Feministing]
  • H&M chunks good clothes that could go to the needy. [CollegeCandy]
  • Joe Rogan is a homophobic asshole. I know it's not news, but it is a good read. [The Sexist]
  • Why RockBand is awesome and people who think music is always SRS BZNZ suck generally. [Pandagon]
  • A woman in Dubai was jailed for being raped. Because she had sex. [Broadsheet]
  • 10 dudes not to date in 2010. Funny, but maybe we should avoid dating men who don't shower every year. [Lemondrop]
  • What do you do when a friend is in an abusive relationship? [YourTango]
  • Kathleen Hanna's zines and writings are being put into a "Riot Grrrl Collection" at the New York University library. So proud to be a Bobcat today. Or are we a torch? I forget. [Bitch]

I raise my glass of liquid codeine to you all and hope that you have many a holiday party planned for this weekend. Me, I have overcoming some heinous strep throat and a lot of watching the George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol, which is the clearly most superior version of said story. Here's this week's ladynews link love:

  • Don't wait for him to ask you out. [College Candy] Saying what you want is key to getting it. And if someone doesn't want to give it to you, well, time less wasted.
  • Tori Amos talks Christmas and Christianity. [Lemondrop] I've never been an Amos fan. But as I was also raised Methodist like the crooner-lady, I like this interview.
  • Pregnant women in jail forced to give birth in their cells, with no assistance. [Feministe] My thoughtful commentary: aghghgskdskjhgalgheowieilwmlsie!
  • What effect will the bi-yearly pap smear rec have on STI screening? [Feministing] What do you think will happen when ladies go to the ladydoctor less?
  • Amanda Hess' funnypants takedown of some incredibly lame Cosmo sex tips. [Sexist] No joke, they advise you to fuck a sprinkler. Like, a yard sprinkler.
  • Despite risks and complications, weight loss surgery projections are up for next year. [F-Word] Diet and exercise have apparently been spurned like one of Henry VIII's wives.
  • If you had just said "green balloons," a Missouri politician wouldn't have raped you. [Bitch] Other things that will prevent men from raping you: not being drunk, wearing a lot of unnecessary clothing, staying inside in the kitchen barefoot.
  • Fashion and coloring books, together at last! [Bust] WANT
  • Obama signs 2010 spending bill that favors an "evidence-based teenage pregnancy prevention initiative." [Ms.] Abstinence education will cry itself to sleep tonight. And I will laugh.

I just rounded up another semester of graduate school, and I am ready for a really long nap. And a drink. Can someone rig up some kind of whiskey pillow?

Here's what happened in ladyness this week:

  • So much James Franco on General Hospital, so little time for repeated, indulgent masturbation. [Jezebel]
  • After releasing issue with K-Fed on the cover, Details editor claims, with presumably straight face, that women's mags are far inferior to men's mags. Related: [MediaBistro]
  • I saw "bar falls" instead of "bar fails." Good article, but now I really want to see some drunken faceplants. [CollegeCandy]
  • Alexa Chung's actual music-related MTV show has been canceled. Will someone remind me what the "M" in that acronym stands for, again? [Hollywire]
  • Why are there so few women at the center of sex scandals? I don't know, but I plan to help remedy this situation with haste once I become prominent, famous and irresistible. [Pandagon]
  • Michelle Duggar had another, super-premature, kid via c-section after extensive complications. No, Duggars, god is not trying to tell you anything. Keep on keepin' on. [Broadsheet]
  • AWESOME SCARVES. [The Frisky]
  • Going gaga over gay Gaga. [Bitch]

In addition to my regular Friday afternoon roundup, I'm going to link to this beautiful and funny and heart-warming video Portland filmmaker T'chaka Sikelianos and the Brooklyn branch of his family made after their 4-year-old went on a hippie-dippy peace rant.

Give a Chance 4 Peace (8mins) from T'chaka Sikelianos on Vimeo.

And here are some ladythings:

  • Is being single making us fat? Well, at least one of us, apparently. [College Candy] Linked especially for the "things to melt cheese on" line.
  • Uganda's bill to execute homosexuals is likely to pass. [Feministing] Luckily, America's own Rick Warren is helping the anti-LGBT crusade there! So proud. So proud. What was it Jesus said? "Kill the fucking homos?" Something like that.
  • Kate Harding can't fight the feminist fight against the plastic surgery tax. [Broadsheet] This boat, I am in it.
  • Rape on college campuses is often covered up. [Jezebel] Other things buried in college: your thesis statement.
  • Would a clothesline make you feel special? [Sociological Images] Lines of any kind are best avoided, methinks.
  • UGH CHEETAHS. [Sexist]
  • UGH CHEETAHS II: PANDAGON BOOGALOO [Pandagon]
Happy weekend, Dolls!

It's rainy and cold here in Austin, but I'm packing up to go camping with a bunch of these guys in the name of outdoor perseverance. Hopefully this ladynews roundup will get you through the rest of your Friday afternoon:

  • Oprah's leaving Oprah. Sad to see her go? You shouldn't be. She's starting a cable channel for fuck's sake. [Daily Beast]
  • Kate Moss says that being skinny is tastier than tasty food. Forthcoming counterpoint expected from the breakfast tacos in my tummy. [Feministing]
  • Rape metaphors all the rage for Republican wingnut dudes. [Broadsheet]
  • Jezebel takes on Michelle's. Every last one of them. Even the one in the White House. [Jezebel]
  • A childless-by-choice testimony. [F-Word]
  • At least 162 transgendered persons have been killed over the past year. Today we remember them. [Feministe]
  • Cops used a taser on a 10-year-old girl in Arkansas. [Pandagon]
  • You like big butts. You cannot lie. But do those big-butted rap video women like you? [The Sexist]
  • A step-by-step guide to virginity lost. [CollegeCandy]

Started off bad this week with all that Stupak mess. But is there such a thing as a good week in ladynews, anyway? You be the judge.

  • Feministing tackles Psychology Today's "imposter syndrome." [Uh, Feministing.] Sadly, nothing to do with Inspector Gadget or James Bond.
  • Sarah Palin's new book reignites interest in Sarah Palin. [CNN] Really, anything that takes away from Levi Johnston's nudie penis is fine with me.
  • Profile of transgendered classical pianist Sara Davis Buechner. [NYT] Turns out, a sex change does not keep you from being crazy, insanely talented. Sorry, conservative panic.
  • Katie Price got pwn3d by Chelsea Handler. [Daily Fail] Is it news when someone like Katie Price says something stupid? It is to the Daily Shame Women At All Costs Mail!
  • Who gets to decide where to spend Thanksgiving when you're coupled up? [College Candy] The person with the better family of cooks, methinks.
