 Wikipedia’s Separate “American Female Novelists” Category Is Way Sexist 
,
Thanks to the diligence of an intrepid (read: bored) late-night Wikipedia user — who also happened to be a New York Times reporter — the massive info website is under fire for quietly moving the women in the “American novelists” category into a separate one, “American women novelists,” because apparently the uterus is its own genre. As the user pointed out in the Times, a whole range of female writers, the authors of iconic, amazing novels, no longer existed on the main American novelists page: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ayn Rand, Ann Beattie, Aimee Bender, Amy Bloom, Judy Blume, Alice Adams, Louisa May Alcott, Mary Higgins Clark, Harper Lee, Anne Rice, Amy Tan and Donna Tartt, among 300 others.

 Camille Paglia Wrote a Wackadoo Rant About Katy Perry and Taylor Swift 
,
Camille Paglia has claimed that she has the right to call a woman who was date raped a "stupid idiot," she gushes about Sarah Palin like she's an Ayn Rand heroine ("So she doesn't speak the King's English - big whoop! There is a powerful clarity of consciousness in her eyes"). In short, Camille Paglia is as crazy as a sack of ferrets, and she is worried about you, Middle-Class White Girl.

• • Anna Breslaw’s 600-Word Sprint: The Devil and Ann Coulter 
,
Atlas Shrugged  | First Amendment absolutists might argue that preventing someone from speaking at a college—even Ann Coulter—violates the basic tenets of anti-censorship and the principles of free speech.And yet, the impressionable nature of 18-year-olds, never to be underestimated, should not be left out of consideration. They’re at times susceptible to joining crusades led by unrelenting, harsh, anti-humanist rhetoric. Just look at how many of them like Ayn Rand.

,
Atlas Shrugged movie  |Atlas Shrugged  |The Fountainhead  |Capitalism  |Video  | If you’re anything like me, you had a love affair with Ayn Rand when you were thirteen and found her novels at the twenty-five cent booksale at the library. Everyone was so intense and awesome and had passionate, violent sex with each other! The Fountainhead’s Howard Roark was your dream man, Atlas Shrugged’s Dagny Taggart your role model.

• • Burlesque 
,
Atlas Shrugged  | Who is Steve Antin? Much like the oft-asked rhetorical question from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (“Who is John Galt?”), it is not one that will provide you with any conclusive answers to the mysteries of our world, like how a movie like Burlesque got funding. But the answer is that Steve Antin both wrote and directed this Cher-Xtina sh*tshow, and that's who he is.
