Who could forget the Avery rule . . .
As a hard core New York Rangers fan, I’ve always loved Sean Avery. I love his shit-talking, his dirty plays, and his amazing talent on the ice. I love that he interned with a fashion magazine in the off-season after the Rangers got knocked out of the playoffs, and I love that he openly admitted his love for women’s clothing, especially handbags. He’s the kind of player you love if he’s on your team, but can’t stand if his on the other team. And now, after his public show of support for marriage equality, I love him even more! He’s a tough, dirty, skilled, athlete speaking out for what he believes in, even though he’s taking a lot of shit for it.
I may be his new number one fan (in a very not-stalker kind of way, of course). Keep doing what your doing Avery! It only takes one person to make a difference!
Here’s the video from the HRC:
Hear no evil, see no evil, speak of no vagina . . .
Once again I owe a thank you to Jersey Shore for this post. On the latest episode Snooki and Deena were trying to move a bed and couldn’t get it through the door way. Snooki compared it to Vinny’s “penis not fitting in her pin hole.” Then about 5 minutes later in the show Snooki says that the girls room “smells like vagina.” The only difference – you didn’t actually hear the word “vagina” because it was bleeped out.
The FCC has defined profanity as,
including language so grossly offensive to members of the public who actually hear it as to amount to a nuisance.
The FCC on censoring content:
The material must depict or describe, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by applicable law; An average person, applying contemporary community standards, must find that the material, as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest;
Still not sure how this justifies saying penis on late night MTV, but not vagina. Unless the majority of people are less offended by the word ‘penis’ than they are by the word ‘vagina’, which sadly, I would guess is the case.
Thought this Kotex U commercials was pretty relevant.
