Miss Piggy Is TIME Magazine's Latest Feminist Icon?

Miss Piggy has been making headlines after publishing her very own editorial piece for TIME Magazine about her feminist beliefs. This article came hot on the heels of the announcement that the muppet will be honored with a Sackler Center First Award from the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum later this week. Yes. Miss Piggy. And no, this is not a prank. A lot of you might be wondering: How could a celebrity pig be a feminist icon? (But don't worry. Miss Piggy addresses such criticism early on in her piece.) "Yes, it is true that I am a Porcine American. How can a … ahem, pig … be a feminist? After all, the p word has long been associated with the very antithesis of feminists 'male chauvinist.' This, alas, is a vestige of latent 'species-ism.' Sure, there are male chauvinist pigs, but there are also male chauvinist humans and, on very rare occasions and at their own peril, male chauvinist amphibians. Let us not besmirch an entire species because of the sins of a few." Well said, Piggy. Piggy then goes on to discuss the future of feminism, something she believes must be 'proud, positive, powerful, perseverant, and, wherever possible, alliterative' and should 'believe in itself, share its triumphs, overcome its setbacks and inspire future generations.'

5 Gifts I Would Bring To Angelina Jolie's 40th Birthday Party: A Birthday Card

Dear Angie, Well first, happy birthday. I can't believe that you're 40 years old. It seems like it was just yesterday when you were starring in that made-for-TV movie about Gia Carangi. You know, the one where you had that weird spiky haircut that had you looking like what would happen if Gobo from Fraggle Rock had rabies. You remember, don't you? From 'Girl: Interrupted' to UN Ambassador, you've come a long way. And, with six kids, a sexy A-List husband, and an incredible amount of humanitarian and screen work behind you, you have so much to be proud of. I'd imagine right now you're preparing to have the hugest birthday party somewhere in the Hollywood Hills involving Brad Pitt, champagne, caviar, and your borderline creepy brother, James. (Everyone remembers James, right?) And while I would have love to come, I (somehow) didn't get invited, so I decided to make a special birthday card showing you the five things I would have gotten you if I had been. (It's your loss really. I'm a professional at stuff like this.) 1) A Red Velvet Cake Of You In Maleficient Maybe other people might think it's a little bit disturbing to be eating your face, but I know you. You love creepy things. I mean, you were the young bride who walked down the aisle with a vile of Billy Bob Thorton's blood hanging from your neck. You totally eat creepy up.
