Does Christina Hendricks have a body women should aspire to? - "Her hips are probably the most hypnotic on television, and now Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Harris (nee Holloway), and is reportedly a size 14, has had her body officially endorsed by the British government. "Christina Hendricks is absolutely fabulous," says Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone, who held up Hendricks' outline as an ideal shape for women... That figure is reportedly in possession of dimensions around 36-32-36 - although some reports suggest 38-32-38 - and her breasts variously described as a C or D cup. That kind of body requires a lot of exercise and healthy eating to maintain, says Deanne Jade, a psychologist at the National Centre for Eating Disorders. "Usually in the real world, the bigger breast goes along with a bigger tummy, wider waist or protruding abdomen. "So it's unusual to have someone with these curves. Therefore to get a figure like that, you would have to work hard or be naturally well-endowed"... "There is a possibility of getting this body by exercise and being careful what you eat - some people have ideal bodies without having surgery - but it requires a big investment in time and money. It's a full-time job in itself.""

Tan yii Yann's answer to Crime: How do you feel about anti-rape clothing? - Quora - "Most women are not stupid. Most men are not rapists. However, the opposites of the two seem to find each other much too often... Frankly, ladies, it makes us all look like a spoilt bunch of brats when we don't take basic measures, yet complain. There are loads of us that argue, "this is a basic tenet of feminism". No, it is not. We are trying to get equal rights. We are not trying to get the right to do whatever we want and blame everyone else but us."

Sexual assault and drinking: Teach women the connection. - "A common denominator in these cases is alcohol, often copious amounts, enough to render the young woman incapacitated. But a misplaced fear of blaming the victim has made it somehow unacceptable to warn inexperienced young women that when they get wasted, they are putting themselves in potential peril... more than 80 percent of campus sexual assaults involve alcohol... we are failing to let women know that when they render themselves defenseless, terrible things can be done to them. Young women are getting a distorted message that their right to match men drink for drink is a feminist issue. The real feminist message should be that when you lose the ability to be responsible for yourself, you drastically increase the chances that you will attract the kinds of people who, shall we say, don’t have your best interest at heart. That’s not blaming the victim; that’s trying to prevent more victims. Experts I spoke to who wanted young women to get this information said they were aware of how loaded it has become to give warnings to women about their behavior. “I’m always feeling defensive that my main advice is: ‘Protect yourself. Don’t make yourself vulnerable to the point of losing your cognitive faculties,’ ” says Anne Coughlin, a professor at the University of Virginia School of Law, who has written on rape and teaches feminist jurisprudence. She adds that by not telling them the truth—that they are responsible for keeping their wits about them—she worries that we are “infantilizing women.” The “Campus Sexual Assault Study” of 2007, undertaken for the Department of Justice, found that the popular belief that many young rape victims have been slipped “date rape” drugs is false. “Most sexual assaults occur after voluntary consumption of alcohol by the victim and assailant,” the report states. But the researchers noted that this crucial point is not being articulated to young and naïve women: “Despite the link between substance abuse and sexual assault it appears that few sexual assault and/or risk reduction programs address the relationship between substance use and sexual assault... nothing is going to be as effective at preventing alcohol-facilitated assaults as a reduction in alcohol consumption. The 2009 campus sexual assault study, co-authored by Krebs, found campus alcohol education programs “seldom emphasize the important link” between women’s voluntary alcohol and drug use “and becoming a victim of sexual assault”... Lake says that it is unrealistic to expect colleges will ever be great at catching and punishing sexual predators; that’s simply not their core mission. Colleges are supposed to be places where young people learn to be responsible for themselves. Lake says, “The biggest change in going to college is that you have to understand safety begins with you. For better or worse, fair or not, just or not, the consequences will fall on your head.””

Ankit Sethi's answer to Culture (social science): Are female breasts overrated? - Quora - "In only 13 of those 190 cultures were breasts found to have any role in sexual attraction whatsoever. To split hairs even further, the study also revealed that in only 13 out of 190 cultures did breasts play a role in sexual activity (touching/fondling, as part of sexual intercourse). In the rest, breasts played no role at all."

Opinion: Young men, get 'yes' a text before sex - "I've been worried that I left out one important piece of advice that is a must-do today: Never have sex with a girl unless she's sent you a text that proves the sexual relationship is consensual beforehand. And it's a good idea to even follow up any sexual encounter with a tasteful text message saying how you both enjoyed being with one another -- even if you never plan on hooking up again. Crazy, I know, but I've actually been encouraging my son and his friends to use sexting -- minus the lewd photos -- to protect themselves from being wrongly accused of rape. Because just as damning text messages and Facebook posts helped convict the high-schoolers in Steubenville of rape, technology can also be used to prove innocence. How to protect yourself from false rape allegations is a constant conversation among professional athletes... though the public may scoff at stories of athletes who frequent strip clubs or solicit prostitutes, many athletes say they do this to avoid unwarranted sex assault charges."

VMAs 2013: Guess What? Miley Cyrus Ain't Even Twerking | YourTango - "The movements of many of the women in those old (and newer) videos showed twerking at a level that Miley Cyrus didn't approach with her VMA performance, in which she bent all the way over and swung her little butt from side to side. As Urban Dictionary puts it, twerking is "the rhythmic gyrating of the lower fleshy extremities in a lascivious manner with the intent to elicit sexual arousal or laughter in ones intended audience." Twerking is a combination of twisting your hips and bouncing your butt at work. Who twists their hips and bounces their butts at work? Strippers, of course."

Lady looks like a dude: Female model goes male to get more jobs - "[Elliott] Sailors, a stunning blonde who for years worked steadily as a Ford Agency model, decided to switch things up once she found the offers were drying up. She cut off her hair, ditched the makeup and made use of her strong jawline to become a "male" model. And guess what. It's worked. Sailors told the Post that in the modeling world "men don’t need to look as young as possible, so I have a lot of time"... she often walks around town dressed like a man because it's easier (no heels, no makeup). On the negative side, she has noticed that nobody holds the door for her anymore."
