Hey Girl, I'm Sheriff Joe
Hey Girl, I’m Sheriff Joe.

The gay and lesbian community of Minnesota apologizes to recently resigned Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch for ruining the institution of marriage and causing her to commit adultery.

5 Christmas things gays have ruined.

Or may I suggest the Feministing Store if you’ve still got last minute shopping. Hoodies and shot glasses and thongs, oh my!

Posting will be slower over the next week while the Feministing crew takes some much needed vacation time (read: works on behind-the-scenes projects we never have the time for). There will still be plenty of reason to check out the blog, though. Look for the Feministing Five coming tomorrow, and all next week members of the crew will be highlighting some of our fave writing in the Feministing Year in Review.

Merry Happy!

    santorum: “President Obama is for income equality. That’s socialism. It’s worse yet, it’s Marxism,”. lol. how dare he associate marxism/socialism with obama! it’s bad enough marxism & socialism are associated with stalinism. it always bugs me when people say some people work harder & therefore deserve more & get what they deserve. it is a slap in the face to every underpaid nurse, firefighter and teacher out there. the word underpaid in front of those professions is almost redundant.

    gays ruining christmas: “festivals of sexual orgy pleasure fiascos”. wow how did i not know about this? maybe christmas won’t be so bad after all! (this was a satire of conservative views right? right?)

      Yes, Christwire is a satirical site. Sometimes, though, it resembles the source material too much though…

        Yeah, I had a Poe’s Law moment until I noticed the endorsement from Rachel Maddow!

      I agree, and Marxism/socialism should not be associated with Stalinism either.

    awe, but the feministing undies aren’t available to women above a size 12! maybe you could find a different clothing provider.

      I know, such a problem. The store’s definitely just a start.
