Newsweek Gets Blasted for Inflatable Penis Cover

For its November 17 issue, Newsweek has published a cover story that focuses on the #MeToo movement.

Focusing on the fact that women now feel empowered to speak out against famous men who have acted inappropriately over the years (from Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey to Louis C.K.), the publication asks:

#MeToo is taking down powerful men in all fields. Is Donald Trump next?

But it does so alongside the photo of a pin popping a penis balloon, prompting many Internet users to ask: WTH?!?

Why must the implication here by that women are actively hurting men by simply calling them out for sexual harassment or assault?

Women don't have some problem with penises. They have a problem with guys who act like dicks, basically.

Scroll down for a look at what people are saying about this controversy:

1. The Controversial Cover

The controversial cover
It’s not hard to see why folks have an issue with this image, right?

2. So, the Problem is That Men Have Dicks?

So the problem is that men have dicks
And women should fix that problem by injuring said dicks? Is that the message here?

3. These Women Were Assaulted

These women were assaulted
They just want justice. Not revenge.

4. Tone Deaf… to the Max

Tone deaf to the max
This cover is just missing the entire point.

5. All the Nope

All the nope
This isn’t our favorite saying, but we agree with the sentiment.

6. BOOM!

This one says it all.

Taylor Swift Album Cover, Release Date: Revealed!!!

The mystery is over.

The excitement can officially begin!

Days after unveiling a couple of creepy snake-themed videos on her Instagram page, fueling speculation that she’s set to make a musical comeback, Taylor Swift has made it officially:

That is most definitely her plan!

The superstar went ahead and set the Internet on fire this afternoon by announcing:

  1. The name of her upcoming studio album.
  2. The release date.
  3. The cover art.

You can check out the third item listed above, while we can now confirm that the record will be titled “Reputation” and it will be available to purchase on November 10.

We think we speak for all readers when we say the following in response:


Based on previous reports, Swift may very well release the first track off this album on Thursday night.

Moreover, she may release the video for its at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, which will be hosted by arch enemy Katy Perry.

As you can see at the outset of this post, the cover for “Reputation” features a black and white photo of the artist dressed casually in a loose-fitting shirt, sporting wet hair and standing amid a backdrop of fake newspaper headlines and articles.

They all containing repeats of two words, “Taylor Swift.”

Might this be her way of responding to basically a year’s worth of negative stories?

Swift’s reputation (there’s that word!) took a mighty big hit last summer after Kim Kardashian basically exposed her as a liar.

Frequently EVERYwhere on social media and at awards shows, Taylor has been incredibly quiet ever since.

Her last single, the Zayn Malik collaboration “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” appeared on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack and was released in December.

Expect all this to change over the last quarter of 2017, however.

Expect Taylor Swift to once again rule the music and gossip universe.

Also, expect this album to once again be of the pop song variety, with one insider telling Us Weekly:

“The [new] single is very different. It goes from very soft, to hard, to soft again. Taylor is overhauling her image.”

Moreover: “The video is definitely eye-catching.”

Another source close to the situation tells E! News that there’s a reason Swift hasn’t been making much news of late or splashing photos of her and her new boyfriend around the Web:

She’s been very busy.

“Taylor has been writing and recording her new album in Nashville for the last several months,” this source told E! News in May.

“She has been working on it around the clock and will be making an announcement soon. She is really excited about her new music and can’t wait to share it with her fans…

“She has been entirely focused on that and not much else. She has been 100 percent dedicated to making music the last few months and that’s it.”

Similarly, we are 100 percent psyched to hear it!


Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik SLAMMED for Offensive Vogue Cover!

Doing a photo shoot for Vogue is a very, very big deal, and landing the cover is even bigger.

But we imagine that landing a cover that ends up getting bashed for being offensive and ridiculous isn’t quite as much fun.

Still, that’s the situation Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have found themselves in presently.

See, Vogue decided to do a feature about gender fluidity, and so they got typically adorable couple Gigi and Zayn to pose for the accompanying photo shoot.

This is the first issue: why not get models who are actually gender fluid instead of one of Taylor Swift’s squad members and the guy who used to be in One Direction?

In the shoot, Gigi wore all kinds of suits, and Zayn wore some clothing items with a floral print, and some with lots of embellishments.

In the interview, she said that she wore his clothes all the time, and he added that he wore hers sometimes, too.

“I like that shirt,” Zayn said about one particular piece in Gigi’s closet. “And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”

“Totally,” Gigi agreed. “It’s not about gender. It’s about, like, shapes. And what feels good on you that day. And anyway, it’s fun to experiment.”

She also said “If Zayn’s wearing a tight shirt and tight jeans and a big, drapey coat, I mean– I’d wear that, too. It’s just about, Do the clothes feel right on you?”

“With social media, the world’s gotten very small,” Zayn explained, “and it can seem like everyone’s doing the same thing.”

“Gender, whatever — you want to make your own statement. You know? You want to feel distinct.”

And all that is fine. You can wear whatever clothes you want, sure. Do what makes you happy.

But the issue is that being gender fluid isn’t exactly about being a woman and wearing a suit, or being a man who feels cool wearing floral prints.

And Twitter has been doing an A+ job of calling Vogue out for this mess.

“Zayn and Gigi are profiled in this piece on gender fluidity because… they borrow each other’s clothes sometimes?” one person wondered.

Another wrote “My bf and I share t-shirts, that doesn’t mean we are gender fluid. Jeez louise Vogue, all ya had to do was Google the definition.”

As one reasonable Twitter user pointed out, “I believe Vogue should have called it ‘Androgynous’ and not gender fluid. Seems like just an excuse to put them on the cover.”

Violet Chachki, incredible drag queen and winner of season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race, even got into the debate.

“There’s an entire marginalized community that actually deals with the problems and joys of being visibly queer day to day,” she wrote in a post on Snapchat.

“Ya know people that wear gendered clothing different than the gender they were assigned at birth, not only because it’s cute and fun but as a means of survival.”

Vogue received so much backlash for the issue that they’ve already made a public apology.

“They story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture,” their statement read.

“We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit — we missed the mark. We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”

As of now, neither Gigi or Zayn have commented on the controversy.
