How Frightened Patriarchal Men Have Tried to... →
questionall: It’s no surprise that women (at least those in the US and Europe) have it much better now than ever before. The question is what to make out of the current backward rush toward the “good old days” when, for example, a husband could never be accused of raping his wife. Are the proponents of the hundreds of bills affecting women’s health and sexuality just crackpots? Or are they...
Sign Language BAN imposed on 12 year old deaf girl
deliciouskaek: deafmuslimpunx: I love how the school threatened to suspend the girl while refusing to address the audist bullies who bullied her and other girls for using American Sign Language. Go fuck yourself, Stonybrook School. Via ABC News: School officials have threatened a hearing-impaired girl with suspension if she uses sign language to talk to her friends on the school bus, the...

Sexist Study Claims Women Are Fat Today Because We... →
A group of so-called experts think they have finally figured out the real reason behind our obesity problem: Women just don’t do enough housework anymore. Duh, why didn’t we think of that? According to a new British survey of 8,000 people, 60 years ago the average women’s waistline measured 28 inches. Today, we come in at 34 inches. That’s a full six inches more than our earlier generation. And...
ihititwithmyaxe replied to your post: We’re so sick of the ridiculous claims tour guides make to prospective families. Just wait until the summer tours. Uggggh. Ohhh, I remember them from last summer. They’re terrible. We gave the leaders a talking-to, but it’s only seemed to help a little bit.

The next time a tour comes around, we’re gonna tell them the story of that time my boss rescued a laptop that a student dropped into volcano, fixed it in the helicopter, and returned it to the student two hours later. Watch their jaws drop now, tour guides!! And you thought you had all the juicy tech desk fix-it stories. Muahahahaha.
Three years ago today George Tiller was murdered.
no-i-in-threesome: Scott Roeder, an anti-choice (using the term ‘pro-life’ here would be cruelly ironic) terrorist acting under suggestions from Operation Rescue, shot and killed Dr. Tiller in church. Dr. Tiller was a casualty in the war on reproductive rights. He was the only abortion-provider in a city of 400,000, and one of only three in the entire state of Kansas. Pregnant people came from...
Update: 11 year old trans girl lost appeal →
allyintraining: transawareness: The above article is an update. Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost. She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender. She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her. Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it,...
Badass Bride and Groom Totally Unfazed by Ruinous... →
Right before Caleb and Candra Pence’s outdoor Kansas wedding was set to begin, an ominous wall cloud formed on the horizon. During the ceremony, a tornado snaked toward the ground. But rather than interrupting their nuptials, retreating to the basement, and playing mildewed board games by candlelight for the next hour, the couple gave no fucks, and proceed as planned. This is Kansas,...
Jezebel: My Jewish Abortion →
stfuconservatives: This is a fabulous crosspost on Jezebel today. The author talks about how she was a 19-year-old freshman at Berekeley facing an unwanted pregnancy with an added dose of Nice Jewish Girl guilt. Not to mention the $250 copay for an abortion. Her doctor noticed her Star of David necklace and told her about a Jewish organization that would give her a scholarship for the money she...

Nicole Martins, an assistant professor of telecommunications in the IU College of Arts and Sciences, and Kristen Harrison,...
-I would so marry a woman!!!
But you'd call it a civil union.
Why I love my friends:
“You are very attractive, and awful in all the right ways. And anyone who can’t see that can suck a big ol’ grocery bag full of dicks.” Doesn’t help when I’m the one who can’t see that. Merp.
No worries :) I’m hasing the dumb today, too.
I have massive body hate feels right now.

Maj Gen Robert Mood, the chief United Nations observer, was “deeply disturbed by this appalling and inexcusable act,” after being shown the bodies in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, a statement said. However, he was careful not to ascribe the killings to either side in the conflict, calling on “all parties to exercise restraint and end the cycle of violence.” Opposition activists...

Because white women can get angry at people of color, neh? That’s socially acceptable, even if the man of color is the POTUS. Race is relevant to the patriarchal order. (via shwetanarayan) yes.

Thirteen Roman Catholic dioceses and some Catholic-related groups scattered lawsuits across a dozen federal courts last week claiming that President Obama was violating their religious freedom by including contraceptives in basic health care coverage for female employees. It was a dramatic stunt, full of indignation but built on air. Mr. Obama’s contraception-coverage mandate specifically...
