142. Dirty and Delicious and Not Celibate

Door-slammy feminists steamed over a pro-sex Bumble campaign AND a pro-procreation graduation speaker. Did Nancy date Eddie Vedder? What happened to Diddy? Plus: vibrators, yacht rock, WE CHOOSE JIF

People are mad, version five million: A recent anti-celibacy ad on Bumble sparks outrage, a Catholic commencement speaker touting Catholic values sparks outrage, a rap mogul caught enacting violence that rap moguls are only supposed to rap about (not actually do) — well, you see the pattern.

Also discussed:

  • “I Choose JIF”

  • What is a Harrison Butker, and why did it take over the news cycle?
