Ladies, Would You Like a Dose of Sexism With Your Sexual Dysfunction?

A gold justice scale with the two different gender symbols on either side balancing each other out

You’ve seen the commercials, the series of solitary, take-charge women challenging the camera with a bold stare. I thought it was a laxative commercial. No, it’s a new Rx for the ladies, relieves problems that arise in the bedroom. These no-nonsense women conquered the problem with a new vaginal cream. Bummer for them, as there’s not a man in sight. Where are the men, you ask? They’re in the ED commercials unearthing dinosaur bones, sailing, parachuting, and hiking, accompanied by adoring women beaming with afterglow.

Congratulations Goodreads Winners!

A Frozen Section

“Did you study the video I forwarded to you? It’s all in the wrist,” my friend the oncologist joked, as I angled the biopsy needle into my traitorous breast.

“I know how to do a biopsy!”

“I remember you sucked at biopsies in med school. You should have had a mammogram before you left for Antarctica.”

“You know, it was on my list of things to do before I left; pack warm clothes and get a mammogram,” I fired back.

“All in the wrist,” I repeated as the needle hit the gritty mass taking away all doubt. It was cancer.

My flash frozen fiction inspiration comes from my friend Doug’s photo prompt and from Jerri Nielsen, MD who bravely biopsied and diagnosed…

The Oscars 2015: ScarJo’s Necklance, Gaga’s Gloves and Bradley the Vampire

Love it!

fashion, food and flirts

Last night was the night we had all been waiting for: The Oscars!

It was a splendid show, not only because Neil Patrick Harris showed up in his underwear (yassss)

neal

or Eddie Redmayne won (he won!),

eddie

but especially because the marvelous Patricia Arquette had the guts to stand up and demand equal pay for women in the industry. Her speech gave me goosebumps and looking at how Meryl and J.LO reacted, I’m guessing it gave them goosebumps too…

meryl

Anyway, what a wonderful night it was indeed!

So back to the dresses, because there is plenty to be said about last night’s parade. First of all, I often do NOT agree with the general opinion of all the other fashion bloggers. Why does everyone hate ScarJo’s necklace? Seriously, I luuuuuuv it. Why did they despise Gwyneth’s giant shoulder flower so much? I thought it looked amazing! And…

Publishing Is Rotten To The Core

It’s always all about the $$

There is something seriously askew with the supposed values of the publishing business.

The most egregious behavior continually gets overlooked, ignored, and swept under the carpet, in favor of pursuing pet targets.

As always, I’m conscious of whose agenda this serves and why writers allow themselves to be used as pawns in this game.

Exhibit A: Harlequin

Amazon is regularly slated for the way it manages its tax affairs. I have written extensively about this before, but, in short, Amazon is using extremely common methods for minimizing its tax bills that are used by every major tech company (and many other multinational corporations too).

You can argue these loopholes should be closed (and I would agree), but these actions are legal. And I wouldn’t be surprised if the major publishers, and the global media conglomerates which own them…
