Megan Fox Is Now A Never-Nude

After having her son, Noah, Megan has rethought her past roles which (ahem - Transformers) highlighted her body instead of her acting chops. She has resigned to covering up so that when her son gets older he doesn't have to deal with the "humiliation." She said, "I'm going to be more cautious about choosing films because I'm already thinking about when he's in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he's going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before."

Dropping The Double-Standard [Sex in the News]

College students are finally making strides towards dropping the double standard towards promiscuity. Research presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association showed findings from a survey of 19,000 students from 22 colleges. According to the survey, men and women are judging both sexes more equally for their sexual behavior.

Miley Makes a Very Good Point

As much as I dislike Miley Cyrus and all her bimbo-ish ways (like when she said she's never listened to Jay-Z but he's mentioned in her hit, "Party in the U.S.A"), this girl really speaks her mind and sometimes, she's spot on. Like her recent comments on the painstakingly obvious double standard that young, female entertainers have to live up to in the entertainment industry.

The Dating Double Standard

A few weeks ago I was set up with a boy. We chatted for a bit, made some small talk. He was sarcastically funny and he was tall, and in my book, those two things will warrant a first date. (Let’s face it - Jewish boys are usually not tall, and even less so if you buzz down that J- fro.)

Saturday Read: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, by Tucker Max

I decided to take a different approach to this weekend's Saturday Read. Usually, I try to recommend my readers a great book. But this week, I'm looking to use a book to make a point. "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" is a controversial memoir by Tucker Max.

The Tucker Max Double Standard

My opinion of Tucker Max is complex. While I can't say I agree with his choice of lifestyle, I did read his book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, recommended it to others and have it listed as one of my favorite books on Facebook. To be honest, I thought it was hysterical and could see myself writing a similar book.

Q & A With The Cast of MTV’s College Life

I really can’t give MTV’s new series “College Life” enough praise. I’m not a huge fan of the whole reality thing, but since the show is shot by the students themselves it really puts a good spin on a tired genre. Every episode is chock-full of the real life drama of being an actual freshman at one of America’s largest party schools – the University of Wisconsin.

I Love You, Man: If The Tables Were Turned

I Love You, Man was funny (duh). It made me laugh till I peed a little and also reaffirmed my love for Jason Segel. Any man who can make fun of man Uggs but still pull them off gets bumped up on my list. For real. (P.S. Jason, I’m a NJG (Nice Jewish Girl); call me. My mom makes a mean matzo ball soup. True story.)
