What We Missed

Anna Holmes on female anger.

New Hampshire Republicans proposed a bill that would require police officers to actually witness domestic violence in action before they could make an arrest.

Seriously, can we stop with the slavery games and slavery math problems?

Cory Booker responds to Chris Christie’s suggestion that civil rights should have been decided through voting.

    Great article from Anna Holmes, what she discussed was also some of the reasons growing up I never showed my anger, I didn’t want to be “ridiculed” and not taken seriously. This is very sad.
    Although the part “left her for younger blonder model.” I kind of couldn’t resist to say yeah, Callista Gingrich has blonde hair, so what? She could have just said he left her for a younger model without adding hair color to it. Unfortunately lot’s of guys leave their long time wives for younger women, regardless of what hair color they have. (Sorry, I have blonde hair and it makes me comment on things like that)

    LOVE the video of Cory Booker. He so eloquently and thoughfully tells it like it is. Very powerful

    If I’m reading the proposed New Hampshire bill correctly it may also prevent police officers from even entering someone’s home to witness domestic violence in the first place. That’s so evil it’s almost beyond words.

    (Also, it looks like /r/MensRights is not terribly pleased with that bill either – it harms male victims in the same way and doesn’t change the parts that cause them always to be treated as the abusive one. Absolutely the only beneficiaries here are the abusers.)

    I never knew the republicans in my home state were such disgusting human beings.

    How hot is it? Megan Fox is only no. 6.
    But that’s what happens when you’ve got the world’s biggest database of gorgeous women, currently 12,740 ladies strong, and you run the numbers on the most popular Chickipedia chicks of 2010. (Painstaking research, we assure you.) You voted with your clicks—a whopping 10,954,369 times, thanks! Now’s your chance to check out lovely pics and spicy quotes, click on names to see profiles, and try to guess the five babes who beat out Miss Fox. Couple hints: only one was born in the US of A, and we just interviewed another, who skyrocketed to No. 2 after not even being on the list last year.

    Alright, we’ll shut up now. Enjoy The Chickipedia Hot 100.

      “You voted with your clicks” looks so much like “You voted with your dicks.” It is almost brilliant.

    The most worrying part of the New Hampshire bill is some of the responses I read in the comment section on that page (*Ahem*Aoirthoir An Broc Masculinist*Ahem*) It sort of leaves me with the impression that we really can’t change people’s opinions or what they think, no matter how effectively we communicate, what we say, how valid our points are or how invalid their points are. It’s like trying to correct someone who is absolutely convinced that 2+2=7.

    That New Hampshire bill is insane. The only reason I can think of for proposing such a bill is they are going a little overboard in protecting innocent people from being falsely accused of abuse. That law does say someone is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. At least the people arrested will for sure be guilty because that means an officer actually saw the beating.
