McAvoy Talks Pubic Hair, A Scientist Talks Duck Genitalia, and No, Bieber Shouldn't Have a Pet Monkey
Happy hump day, y’all. Let’s do this.
Things I never thought I’d say: Bill O’Reilly keeps debating marriage equality, and it isn’t crazy. In fact, he’s schooling conservatives over on Fox, including Laura Ingraham: “Don’t you understand the difference between private beliefs and public policy?” Lovely. (Media Matters)
James McAvoy didn’t mind looking at Rosario Dawson in all her glory for their new film, Trance, and he doesn’t mind discussing, uh, grooming tips when it comes to guys and gals. (Vulture)
Fassbender’s birthday was yesterday, but do you really need a reason to look at Fassy gifs? I didn’t think so. (Uproxx)
This past awards season felt empty without Angelina Jolie, her leg and Brad Pitt cruising the red carpets. But she’s been busy doing work that’s actually important: The expansion of her “Style of Jolie” jewelry line is helping fund a girls-only primary school she has opened in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Here’s another fundraiser: DC Entertainment’s “We Can Be Heroes” campaign, which raises money for humanitarian aid organizations dealing with the hunger crisis faced in the Horn of Africa. “It. Is.

Continuing with superheroes, reader Nicholas Hyde has some very cool pop-culture art on Etsy, including some awesome Classical Greek Superhero prints. (Harshness)
Would you rather see Thor as animal form? OK! Here’s Hedgehog Thor. (Thanks, Jenn!)
Switching gears, if this nice lady wants to study duck genitalia, then you should let her study duck genitalia. And let her have money for it. Otherwise she’s going to keep talking about it. Science! (Slate)
And if these people want to whisper at each other, then just … wow. This is a real thing, huh? (BoingBoing)
Tumblr’s wonders never cease. My new favorite presents “serendipitous poetry of The New York Times” thanks to an algorithm scanning articles. (Times Haiku)
In the same vein, Zen DP sent us what apparently has been declared “the anthem of Tumblr bloggers”: “Do You Hear the Fandoms Sing?” That is so nerdy it’s adorable. Nerdable. (Waiting4Codot)
This is fun: Watch Ivy Winters, a contestant on “Ru Paul’s Drag Race,” transform (via Buzzfeed):
And finally, here’s a remix of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” with 3rd Eye Girl to get you through today (via Stereogum):
