Meghan McCain’s hairstylist never asked for the job, says “I’m

After months of one terrible hair style after another, Meghan McCain‘s hairstylist is finally breaking her silence.

Many have accused former-model-turned-hair-and-makeup-artist Carmen Currie of secretly hating McCain and taking her aggression out on The View co-host’s hair and makeup.

In a new interview with The Cut, Currie is denying the accusations.

“I’m not slapping something on her and being like, ‘Take THAT!” she swears.

But while she isn’t admitting to intentionally making her client look ridiculous, she’s also not taking responsibility for her appearance.

“I’m not telling her what to do all the time,” Currie says. “It’s not like that at all.”

Currie explains, “I want her to feel comfortable, I want her to feel confident with what I’m doing, and I want her to like it overall, and she does. I think it shows, and that’s part of what people are picking up on.”

At the end of the day, Currie says, she’s just doing her job, which, BTW, she didn’t actively seek out.

The View is under the Disney umbrella, and I was already with ABC News,” she explains. “I think that’s the thing people don’t know: She didn’t seek me out the way you would do as an individual. We work for the same company, and the company hired me to work with Meghan.”

Currie also says that she has almost no time to prepare before McCain waltzes in to be made up each morning.

“My looks revolve around what she’s wearing, which I don’t know every day,” she explains. “She might just have a black sweater on, or she might have something a little more fun, and that dictates the direction.”

Usually, she’s left to her own devices to figure out how to make McCain look presentable for TV cameras, although occasionally the co-host weighs in.

“Sometimes she’s inspired by a look that she saw, and she’s like, ‘Can we re-create this? Or something like this?,’ and I’m always down. She gets her inspiration from the [Real] Housewives, but also magazines, fashion trends, and colors.”

Last month, McCain gave a shout out to Currie on Twitter, writing: “Thank you @carmen_currie⁩ for your amazing work and vision! And for bringing me back to life after having a baby! It’s a privilege to work with you.”

The feeling does not appear to be mutual.

Just got my first pair of TomboyX underwear and here’s my review of them that no one asked for :) : butchlesbians

Just got my first pair of TomboyX underwear and here’s

Okay so for starters here’s what I got

I’m 5’6 and 125 pounds and got the size small.

When they first arrived I was worried they would be too big because I’m so used to buying boys boxers which visually look much smaller than these. These looked bigger than what I’m used to BUT when I tried them on they were a perfect fit. I probably could have fit into an XS because of the stretchy material these are made out of but the small is pretty damn close to a perfect fit. They are tight around my body but not in an uncomfortable way, it’s almost like you can’t even feel them there. The material is also very breathable.

Because I’m so skinny, men’s boxers don’t really fit me so I usually would buy boys XL. The difference in fit between boys boxers vs these that are actually made for adult bodies is amazing. It’s crazy that for the first time I am wearing underwear that is actually designed for bodies like mine.

Another thing to note is not having that extra fabric pocket in the groin area that you find with men’s underwear while at the same time maintaining a masculine feel with TomboyX is nice.

Something else I noticed in the difference between these vs men’s/boys underwear is the extra layer of fabric in the crotch area (similar to how regular women’s underwear has the extra fabric there for leaks during period/while ovulating etc) TomboyX has that extra layer of fabric, I know that with boys underwear there would be times where I would leak through them while ovulating so it’s also great that I won’t be having that problem with TomboyX.

The overall quality and design of the underwear is also great! The specific pair that I got has a very soft spandex/cotton feel, I’m not exactly sure what type of material they actually used thats just what they feel like to me lol

I will mention however that I feel that the price point is pretty expensive. Do I feel like these underwear are above average? Yes! But do I also feel that they’re kind of pricey? Yes. Ideally I’d love for every single pair of underwear I own to be made for bodies like mine, so specifically from brands like TomboyX. But if I’m going to get 10 pairs of underwear to replace my old underwear I’d be spending over $300 and that’s a lot of money for just underwear. I don’t blame TomboyX for their prices though, I feel that once the market catches up and more brands like TomboyX appear that all prices for this specialty type of underwear will eventually go down.

Another possible con to these underwear is that I wish the waistband was just a little bit thicker. I’m a thick waistband type of gal, like you know when your shirt rises up and you get a lil peek of the waistband, I like that. BUT this is all just personal preference and it’s not like the waistband is tiny or anything, just a pretty standard size.

Overall I’m very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking for underwear made with masculine women in mind 🙂

Remember last week when I told you that I was craving chocolate cupcakes and I couldn’t tell you why because it was a secret? WELL! That was because we (the senior staff of this humble website) had ordered a dozen chocolate cupcakes as a surprise for Kamala, whose first book came out yesterday!! Did you get a copy yet?? I hear it is very gay and lots of fun!

We are in such a barren desert for queer television that I actually physically gasped when I heard this news! We’re getting two Euphoria episodes in the “bridge” season — including one about my second favorite holigay, Christmas! Sadly, it doesn’t sound like it will be a happy holigay for Rue.

“I meet Tourmaline on a sticky July afternoon in Brooklyn by the edge of the algae-saturated pond adjacent to the boathouse in Prospect Park. The heat appears to shimmer and break above the asphalt on the path nearby. A pair of dragonflies hover above a lily pad next to me. I wonder if they’re fucking. Dabbing the condensation from my iced coffee onto my brow, I fiddle with my phone as I wait. When she arrives, Tourmaline is a seapunk dream. Her hair is dyed an aquatic blue and there is a streak of teal eyeshadow across her eyelids. A tattoo of Johnson peeks out from beneath her blouse. Her look transports me back to the Tumblr aesthetics of 2012, when Tourmaline’s blog first became popular. ” — Muna Mire on Tourmaline: Tourmaline Summons the Queer Past (Seriously, this is just some damn beautiful queer writing)

GO FUND ME! Golponama: Bangladesh’s 1st Queer Story Collective. This comes our way from Himani, who had this to say: Being a queer South Asian often feels like being invisible because it is a community that lives behind many, many doors. As Faisal Ahmed Misha writes in the GoFundMe campaign: “These stories also speak about the lived realities of queer people that cannot be expressed through non-fiction.” I can’t wait to read the words of these Bangladeshi queer writers!

“What does a Republican “moderate” mean these days, though? Under Kasich, half of Ohio’s abortion clinics closed. In his 2015 budget, Kasich proposed cutting Medicaid coverage for low-income pregnant women.”

I’ve been screaming about this ever since former Ohio Governor John Kasich was an invited speaker during the Democratic National Convention (and today it was announced that his name is being floated among other “moderates” in the GOP for Biden’s potential cabinet) — the enemy of our enemy is NOT our friend.
