Donald Trump: Classy as ever. Thought the set-her-up-to-fail scenario for "Anchorwoman" was good? In this Fox reality-TV show, the Donald will be turning "rude and crude" girls into "modern-day princesses." What is this surely riveting program called? "Tramps," but of course.

My god, what's happening to Mexico City? First they legalized gay marriage, then abortion and now possibly prostitution? The Democratic Revolution Party is hoping so, at least -- this week legislator Juan Bustos submitted a bill calling for prostitution to be legalized, in part to protect sex workers.


Are women randier today than they were 40 years ago? Maybe, or they're just being more honest, says a study from the Université de Montréal. The study looked at men's and women's reports of their sexual dreams and was presented at the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies. Another interesting find: Men and women reported a roughly equivalent number of sex dreams.

The New York Times article on "man boobs" has everyone talking. We can only hope it's because they think it's awfully sad that some adolescent boys with the condition, known as gynecomastia, feel it necessary to go under the knife to avoid mocking -- even though most eventually outgrow the condition.

Liberal congressmen and their loose daughters. Every so often it's good to read an unhinged rant from a conservative blogger, just to maintain perspective. Debbie Schlussel comments on a new study which found that the more daughters a congressman has, the more likely it is that he votes to support reproductive rights: "The conclusion they want you to get from this is that pro-life Congressmen are insensitive to women and don't have contact with any. But I'd draw a different conclusion: Congressmen who are liberal are more likely to have slutty daughters."


Babies born in China to be given surname combo? A decision by Chinese authorities to consider allowing parents to combine their surnames, creating a whole new last name for their children, isn't based on some hippie-dippy notion of marital equality. (Hi, Mom and Dad!) It's much more straightforward: China has too many people and too few surnames. Eighty-five percent of China's 1.3 billion citizens share just 100 last names. The reader who sent us a link to this story offered "Practicality beats feminism to the punch?"
