It’s been over a month, but, at last, “This Week Belongs To...” is back! I’m still a bit jet-lagged, and am still catching up on all the Katie Holmes, Paris Jackson, Real L Word CRAZY, pop culture goodness.
That said, let’s get to it!
The Olympics’ Opening Ceremony doesn’t take place until this Friday, but the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team begins its quest for Olympic gold today against France. Clearly, this week belongs to this fantastic team of lezzies ladies—kick off is at noon EST and you can watch the ladies run the field on the NBC Sports Network and the NBC Olympic Soccer Channel (you have those channels, right?).
(Abby Wambach, giving good head since 1980.)
Some of my favorite things and people have come out of Korea—this week belongs to whatever the hell this product is that's being peddled by Korean people craving seksi times while it's "sunny all da time":
(Made for Kim Jong-Un's "excellent horse-like lady"?)
This week also belongs to Hugo Schwyzer. Who? Hugo Schwyzer, you know, that straight white man who penned the most erudite piece about how white male privilege factored into the location and the scale of James Holmes' CRAZY-train shooting spree in Aurora last week. "Why Most Mass Murderers Are Privileged White Men" is a must read—here's an excerpt:
"Perhaps the greatest asset that unearned privilege conveys is the sense that public spaces “belong” to you. If you are—like James Holmes last week, or Charles Whitman, who killed 16 people on the University of Texas, Austin campus in 1966—an American-born, college-educated white man from a prosperous family, you don’t have a sense that any place worth being is off-limits to the likes of you. White men from upper middle-class backgrounds expect to be both welcomed and heard wherever they go. When that sense of entitlement gets frustrated, as it can for a host of complex psychological reasons, it is those same hyper-privileged men who are the most likely to react with violent, rage-filled indignation. For white male murderers from “nice” families, the fact that they chose public spaces like schools, university campuses, or movie theaters as their targets suggests that they saw these places as legitimately theirs."
And, finally, this week belongs to The Muppets, who officially cut ties with Chick-fil-A:
