• Poll: African-Americans are much more upbeat in the Obama era. Really? 39% with a democrat in office renders this newsworthy ?

• Heidi Klum says, “Models have a sell-by date” Wow, that’s quite a grasp of the obvious. Her next gem: “Models have to be tall and thin.”

• Details Magazine is bringing What and the fuck? together in the most delightful way with the article entitled “The Lure of Dating an Ex-Lesbian”.

Ahh, the internet never falls to bring the lulz on the real.

    I lol’ed at the idea of a guy worrying about his equipment not measuring up to a dildo or not being able to “navigate the female anatomy as skillfully as a woman.” News flash: if your partner decides to dump you, there are a near-infinite number of reasons (and people) from which to choose. I don’t see this as peculiar to situations where you’re dating a partner who has previously dated people who weren’t of your gender.

    But the article gave me an idea for a limitless well of future articles I could write based on the theme “Despite Myriad Insecurities, Men Persist In Wanting to Date Women.”

    for simplicity’s sake, we’ll include bisexuals who’ve shifted from women to men


    Also, extra crispy fail in the glossing over of the “ex-gay” Christian movement, and its conflation with fluid sexuality, and the conflation of femininity with straightness.

    “She had a tattoo and she drove a motorcycle.”

    But a few aspects of their former selves never changed. “She doesn’t love to cook, that’s for sure,” says Cole. “But I do, so it works out really well.”

    . . . I have no words for the amount of fail contained in this article.

    NPR was reporting last night how shocking it was that black people are more likely to attribute the general economic disparities between races to racism than white people. Shocker. Oh, oh, and that Latinos have a different perspective than African Americans. My God, it’s a good thing I was sitting down when I heard that.
