Arturo Avina's kindergartners at LAUSD's Olympic Primary Center performed Madonna's "Vogue" for their culmination, to much online acclaim. According to YouTube commenter Ezra Suh:

The boys and girls started the school year as shy English learners and have bloomed into confident kindergarten graduates who exude stage presence as they sang and performed their unique choreography to "Vogue". Mr. Avina is a gifted teacher who has helped each and every student succeed academically as well as develop a love for the arts.

Mr. Avina explained what motivated him: "My kids were little superstars this past year, and what better song to celebrate it with than 'Vogue'?"

As any working mom can attest, academic and State Department consultant Anne-Marie Slaughter is certainly on to something when she makes the case that feminists sold women a load of BS when it comes to having it all.

From the July/August issue of The Atlantic:

It's time to stop fooling ourselves, says a woman who left a position of power: the women who have managed to be both mothers and top professionals are superhuman, rich, or self-employed. If we truly believe in equal opportunity for all women, here's what has to change.

The title track from Beirut's 2011 album The Rip Tide finally gets the video it deserves, from director Houmam Abdallah.

Zach Condon elaborates:

I always felt that "The Rip Tide" wasn't fully able to project its own ambitions in song form.. no matter how it was performed or recorded, it felt contained by sound alone… I wanted more, as I often do with my music, and this is not a bad thing. Growing to accept a song's limits is part of the process of creating and loving them. Which was why I was so excited to see what Houmam had dug into when he picked "The Rip Tide" out of all others for a video. The concept fit, and the product brought the song somewhere that I had only been able to describe to myself, now available for others to see and feel it much more as I had in the process of writing it.

bad word lisa brown say what now fallout vagina - 6359553024

It's been a week since since the Michigan Legislature declared war on the word "vagina," and the two sides are nowhere near a ceasefire.

In case you missed it -- State Rep. Lisa Brown accidentally created her own Vagina Monologue when she dared speak the offensive word during a debate on anti-abortion legislation in the statehouse:

Finally Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but "no" means "no."

Banned the next day from further debate, Brown's supporters promptly took up her cause, defending her decision -- and right -- to use the word "vagina."

Hundreds rallied this week at the Michigan Capitol as lawmakers staged a mini-performance of The Vagina Monologues, and women especially are defending Brown in a show of solidarity. And of course, there's a Michigan Vagina T-shirt for sale to commemorate the controversy.

Brown penned an op-ed this week that lambastes the decision to censor the v-word:

In the aftermath of this, Rep. Jim Stamas, whose job it was to issue the edict against me, said he "honestly had no idea it would become such an issue." I find it amazing that a fellow legislator wouldn't understand why it's outrageous not to just silence me, but my 90,000 constituents.

Still, the question remains: What on earth should Brown have said instead?
