MTV aired Mean Girls and censored the word “vagina” but not “whore.” Just think about it this way: can you imagine the word “penis” being censored? Of course not. The word penis refers to the male anatomy, it is a technical term there is nothing derogatory about it. Oh, but “vagina” the neutral and technical term for . . . vagina - well that is just a dirty word that will shock the poor innocent minds of children. Yawn. I am tired of all this vagina is a dirty word because female anatomy is dirty because women are vile because Eve ate an apple because Adam was a coward or whatever . . .

The Mary Sue reports:

“I presume that MTV’s reasoning for this was to reflect the needs and wants of their demographic of those teens and young adults in the under 25 crowd… Yes, using the word “gay” as an insult is offensive and we need to be mindful of our language and the use of not just this word, but all of our words. Yet there are plenty of people, young adults and teens among them, who self-identify as homosexual, gay, or lesbian. They aren’t slurs… It was particularly interesting that in a movie whose message was about the problematic ways in which young women behave towards one another, “lesbian” and “vagina” were censored, but “whore” and “slut” were not.”

• An actress is suing Cinemax for pressuring her into doing sex scenes. According to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Anne G filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday against Time Warner, HBO, Cinemax and a production company called True Crime LLC claiming that she was bullied into performing nude scenes, sexually harassed and placed in a dangerous work environment.”

• Is Daniel Radcliffe off the wagon? Oh noes. Harry P. has been off the booze since around 2012 but was spotted hanging crunk style at a bar where he was presumably asked to leave.
