    Is that BBC article lumping childless and childfree people together? Whatever. If I died tomorrow I would have gone living my life by the terms I wanted and chose, which is more to me than being 100 and living by what the predominant culture expects me to do.

    Anyway, let me get pissed at Santorum now, we’re already pissed about that whole thing over here.

    23 years ago, on Dec. 6, 1989, a man killed 14 women at l’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. He explicitly stated his hatred for feminists, and specifically targeted women. Since then, people across Canada have gathered to remember their names, and to mourn the loss of hundreds of women to violence. The vigils also include calls for a national inquiry into the disappearance and murder of hundreds of aboriginal women.

    The #Dec6 tag on Twitter was used for posts covering yesterday’s memorials.
