From the Mailbag…

Shaker Graham recommends this article at the BBC: "Whether it's Heather Mills or Kerry Katona, the celebrities that ordinary people vilify seem disproportionately to be female. Why?"

Iain and Shaker SF pass on this article at CNN about a 16-year-old girl whose rape case was dropped by the state's attorney, so she took her case to YouTube, pleading for help.

Shaker Helena Handbasket forwards this Icelandic cartoon, featuring Barack Obama as a cannibalistic tribesman cooking Hillary Clinton in a pot—except that she's naked evidently regarding the pot like a hot tub for sexytime. It's…a clusterfucktastrope, basically. (And part 95 in the Sexism Watch and part 45 in the Racism / Muslim / Unpatriotic / Scary Black Dude Watch.)
