The important question of our time has been answered!

What is the average size of a human penis?

The enduring question now has a scientific answer: 13.12 centimetres (5.16 inches) in length when erect, and 11.66cm (4.6 inches) around, according to an analysis of more than 15,000 penises around the world.

In a flaccid state, it found, the penis of the average man is 9.16cm (3.6 inches) in length and has a girth of 9.31cm (3.7 inches).

I shall sleep easier tonight, knowing that knowledge has been acquired.

Schadenfreude time!

You may have heard that a pair of no-talent MRA hacks named Jordan Owen and Davis Aurini were making a bad “movie” called The Sarkeesian Effect. The excerpts seen so far have been uniformly atrocious: bad lighting, bad sound, droning interviews, all somehow supposed to make Anita Sarkeesian look bad.

Well, it’s a pair no longer. Owen fired Aurini. Aurini is threatening to accuse Owen of absconding with all the money they raised. It’s hilarious!

Irresponsible, racist idiocy

What’s worse than a gamergater? A gamergater giving medical advice.

Mike Cernovich is spreading misinformation now, in a post about avoiding STDs.

Then he shows an incomplete chart of the frequency of HIV infections, and announces If you’re a straight man, you will not get HIV.

Next, they ought to ban everyone who has eaten shellfish or wears mixed fabrics

Poor Erskine College. They recently had a successful volleyball season, then two of their players came out as gay — which shouldn’t be a problem, except that Erskine is in South Carolina, right there in the front flap of the Bible Tightie-Whities, and trustees and administrators and community supporters freaked out. What to do? Easy. They turned to the Bible and issued a statement.

Silencing women’s voices

Some people like to refer to “misogyny” with those scare quotes; it doesn’t really exist, they imply, and it’s certainly not worth fighting against. Others go so far as to deny sexism against women at all — oh, it’s really the men who are discriminated against. But you don’t hear stories about men being harassed off the internet, as commonly occurs to women. There are people who work really hard at making the internet a hostile place for anyone who supports feminism.

These are the people who want to control your reproductive tract, ladies

I guess you don’t need a medical degree to run for office, and heck, you don’t even need grade school anatomy.

An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.

The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.
