Now On Sale: Mixed Messages! Only $500,000!

"Go Daddy gives $500K to fund women's health center." - from the Associated Press. That's one of Go Daddy's web ads above. Give it a look. The announcement continues, "The seller of website domain names, whose Super Bowl ads with scantily clad women made it a household name, is announcing that it has donated $500,000 to the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS to launch a women's health clinic in Phoenix. The Go Daddy Women's Health Center, set to open in 2011, will provide HIV/AIDS prevention for women." That's great. I'm all for philanthropy and AIDS prevention. Know what I'm not all for? Misogynistic hypocrites. Maybe instead of half a mill, the asshats at Go Daddy could support women's health, by, I don't know, using healthy images of women. Just saying.

Oh, and, uh, on a related note, I purchased the domain name "fbombcafe.com" from -- you guessed it -- Go Daddy. Now please excuse me while I eat some (vegetarian) crow with a side of hypocrisy slaw. F*ck.
