This week on The Hash, Molly and Dane begin by discussing tests for female representation in media. The tests were designed to apply to movies, but Molly and Dane analyze how they apply to books as well. Then, the two hone in on plastic surgery for men in response to an AskMen piece. The show wraps with a celebration of Lauren Conrad’s move to ban words like “skinny” from her website.
