It all started with this post at Jezebel. For those unfamiliar, Jezebel is a blog that covers everything from adorable animals (pictures posted biweekly – one for ‘hump day’ on Wednesday, another for ‘tgif’ Friday) to news wrap-ups, all generally from the questioning perspective of feminism. Irin Carmon writes, “[The Daily Show is] also a boys’ club where women’s contributions are often ignored and dismissed.” I can’t imagine why that raised heckles.
In the news today, is a video of MARILYN MONROE smoking – what appears to be – a joint. The clip is silent; a home video shot 50 years ago that shows her with friends and fantastically happy. Whether or not it actually is marijuana, MARILYN is stilly a sassy, ballsy lady and we salute the stoner spirit on display.
