I hate when this happens.

According to The Huffington Post, a 19-year-old Michigan State University student faces possible charges after being caught by police with 79 pairs of stolen underwear, each and every one of them being thongs.

One can’t help but wonder the reasons behind this fetish—a lack of exposure to thongs on the regular, perhaps? Said student told the police that it was simply a prank and does not have any kind of sex addiction.

Maybe this poor schmuck doesn’t have a sex addiction, but creeping in laundry rooms and stealing up to 15 pairs of panties at a time is definitely twisted.

By the way dude, you can have all my thongs, I’m in the market for some new underwear anyway.

Executive Web Editor extraordinaire for Jerk Magazine, Kate Holloway, inquired my thoughts via her Facebook status after the blog-o-sphere exploded concerning the newest accusations concerning Sarah Palin and feminism.

In my book, Sarah Palin does not support feminist ideals, therefore it is difficult for me to associate her with the progressive, never-ending fight for equal rights between genders. Scratch that—it’s nearly impossible for me to consider her a feminist.

Strong women exemplify components of feminism no matter what—Palin’s leadership in her otherwise lacking party is admirable, especially considering current gender roles in politics. Gender aside, I would never elect an individual to greater office who chose to step down from their position as Governor in order to write books, appear on Fox news as a contributing analyst, and signs deals with TLC for reality shows. Woman or man—that can’t be my next President. (more…)

Dear Bristol Palin,

Celebrating my 20th birthday meant a few things: one more year until I’m legal, Syracuse beat Villanova in a historical NCAA basketball match-up, and I dodged the possibility of falling victim to teenage pregnancy.

There has been a surge of teenage pregnancy in popular culture throughout the past few years, like Ellen Page’s famous breakout role in Juno, MTV’s reality show “16 and Pregnant,” and ABC Family’s hit series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” While pop culture has a strong hold on this subject matter, I’ve been aware of your baby situation due to all of your media appearances.

Of all the appearances and publicity stints, this new Candies commercial really takes the cake. (more…)

Juliet, my 5-year-old cousin, beating me in the annual Easter egg hunt.

Easter isn’t exactly my most favorite of holidays to begin with, needless to say I turn into a super drama queen when something goes slightly askew.

Birthdays are awesome because they come with presents and cake, Christmas means time spent baking cookies and listening to James Stewart’s unmistakeable accent as George Bailey, but Easter isn’t filled with the same initial excitement. Sure, chocolate bunnies and Peeps are something to look forward to, but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about.

I clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed this past Sunday morning, because while running on 4.5 hours of sleep I proceeded to have one of the worst Easters ever. Here are 6 reasons why my 2010 Easter didn’t rock: (more…)
