We can't believe stuff like this keeps happening!
It all started when Mississippi governor Phil Bryant put the blame for below average reading abilities of American students on their working mothers. He said:
"I’m gonna get in trouble if I … you want me to tell the truth? I think parents became, both parents started working, and the mom is in the workplace. It’s not a bad thing. I’m gonna get in trouble, I can just see, I can just see the emails tomorrow. But now both parents are working, they’re pursuing their careers."
Sexist, gross, and RUDE!
But then it got worse!
In an effort to start a dialogue around the governor's comments, Fox Business News anchors Stuart Varney and Charles Payne invited Kelly Cutrone on their show.

Lena Dunham, you are not alone!
The Girls creator recently took to Twitter to call out Seth MacFarlane's controversial musical number during the 85th Annual Academy Awards, a tribute to to the actresses who have gone topless on film called "We Saw Your Boobs," and now, a woman who HAS shown her tittays to the world via film has joined her in speaking out against what many would argue to be blatant sexism…and all-around poor taste!
The iconic actress recently revealed:

"I find it very interesting that a man can be a stripper, talk about it openly, go on SNL and parody it in several sketches, and nobody accuses him of leveraging his sexuality to get ahead. They applaud it. And he did make a quality film, and it obviously did really well, and it had a certain pedigree - it wasn't trashy - but I do not think a woman would be treated the same way. I'm living proof of that. A woman's sexuality is dangerous and threatening and dirty, and for Channing, it's a charming tool in his arsenal. And I love Magic Mike. I love Channing. This is in no way a diss on him."

Thanksgiving is that special time of year when we all take stock and consider the blessings in our lives.
And then we collectively go through the nightmare of getting together with our families to remind us how great every other day is!
At least, that's how our friends at Babble have it figured! They lay out some pretty good arguments for NOT doing the big family gathering:

Now here is a legendary comedic voice that we've been dying to hear react to Adam Carolla's most recent misogynistic outburst.
Roseanne Barr was one of the biggest sitcom stars EVER, so we think she would know a thing or two about womens' ability to write them.
In case you haven't heard about the controversy, the former Man Show host told sources that women are "always the least funny on the writing staff" of a sitcom. He proceeded to generalize that "the reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks."
Much like his gay jokes, we don't think these were that funny either and Mz. Barr agrees. The comedian-turned-presidential candidate took to Twitter on Tuesday to share her opinion and wrote:

We can't believe women still have to protest this kind of garbage.
While Emma Barnett was, ironically enough, doing her boyfriend's laundry, she noticed a special care instruction on the inside of his pants:

Looks like Michele is NOT ready to let this Late Night incident go!
To recap, Michele Bachmann appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, and house band The Roots played the song Lyin' As* B*tch as her intro music. (above)
Then earlier today, we heard that Jimmy apologized to Michele via Twitter…but it seems that she's still not satisfied because she wants a formal apology from NBC!
Here's what she had to say about it:
