    Dude, there’s already a Facebook page begging for Bob Costas to be banned from the NFL. It is the funniest thing I’ve seen all week.

  • Brittany commented on the blog post What we missed   1 year, 11 months ago · View

    I’m not even sure I really get the joke “Oh, they’re not going to name their baby Shaniqua because they’re white!” Quite honestly, I haven’t heard of ANYONE named Shaniqua. Also, pretty sure they won’t be naming their baby “Madison” or “Ashley” either. Just saying. Oh, and to those crazy Republicans who want to secede: [...]

    I agree, there is a problem with young girls posting suggestive images of themselves onto the Internet, where people like their future employer or people reviewing their college application will see, but you don’t need to be cruel to get that point across by saying “Go die.” Like how about reporting the girls’ pictures for [...]

  • Brittany wrote a new blog post: “Equal opportunity is a reality”   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    Thumbnail That is wrong on so many levels I can’t even begin to start. I mean…you know, I hate being THAT person, but I’ve noticed all the people who say we’re all equal are WHITE MEN, occasionally white women. Kind of weird, huh? I see this quite often, people denying sexism and racism, because “we have [...]

    On your Ann Romney article:

    MTE. It said exactly what I’ve been thinking, just better put.

  • Can this be an anthem? Because I really feel like going to the Virginia capitol, and bursting out with “I’ve never met you! And this is shady. It’s my vagina! So hands off crazy!”

  • Brittany commented on the blog post A thank you note for Todd Akin   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    Dear male Republican politicians: I don’t pretend to know more about your penis than you, don’t pretend you know more about my vagina than I do. Trust me, I WISH I could shut down my fallopian tubes when I’ve been raped. Or hell, until I’m 27. If you can’t say it OR understand it, DON’T [...]

  • Brittany commented on the blog post “Enough singing,get your clothes off”   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I also find it ironic that when a female singer covers up, they are boring and need to show us some skin. I remember one time hearing someone remark that Hayley Williams from Paramore was “dancing like a slut” in a video (“Misery Business”) when to me, she seemed to be prancing around like all [...]

  • Brittany commented on the blog post The Revenge of the Cuckold   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I was just going to write this! Now I don’t have to and can go back to my usual internet routine of pirating episodes of Duck Tales! But really, thank you for this. I by no means am a fan of Kristen Stewart. I think her acting is atrocious, and her personality that she projects [...]

  • Brittany commented on the blog post Why Paul Ryan is bad news for women (and everyone else)   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    Yeesh. Against abortion even if it saves the mother’s life? Co-sponsor of a bill that bans fertility treatments and birth control? Against a bill that promises equal pay? When my mom overheard someone say “It’s like Romney paid right into our hands, picking someone so terrible” random person was DEAD right.

  • My favorite part was “a petition from three high school feminists”

    Yes, Virginia, you CAN make a difference.

  • Brittany commented on the blog post Anti-gay bigot gets honorable mention in Darwin awards   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I feel so bad for the Cheerios. What did the Cheerios ever do? They were just made honey and nuts. And why be mean to the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee?

    The things homophobes do in the name of hate.

  • Brittany commented on the blog post Trying to start a feminist club   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I agree. That’s very worrying. But they’re anonymous, both the caller and the person on the line. That makes it difficult. As for the club? I would confide about this to your feminist teacher. See if the teacher can help you repeat the demand. Look into school policies, and stick it right to the guy. [...]

  • Brittany wrote a new blog post: If there were a dislike button…   2 years, 3 months ago · View

    Thumbnail I found this on my Facebook, but unfortunately I cannot comment on it, so instead, I shall leave the comment I would have made here. Is that all right with you guys? An eagle is an animal. An animal has no ability to consent over its own body,because animals do not have that ability. PLUS, [...]

  • I would think CNN would understand how “publicity” works.

    I know it’s bad, but I have to laugh at this. The Ku Klux Klan is saying “We’re not racists! We just like white people, and have issues with non-white people!” and a news outlet is seriously going “Yeah, okay.”

  • In the Raw Story, he said “Women can’t love.” Oh ho ho, what do you call parenting? Hm? For many centuries, women were the primary caregiver (notice “care”, in there?) and, in fact, the Bible itself talks much about a woman’s love and how great it is. Not only are you an asshole, you’re a [...]

  • So, my one mission in life is to have an abortion? I’m sorry, I have higher hopes for myself than relating my entire life to one most likely small event in my life. I mean, let’s look in terms of television. If I got an abortion, it would be an episode, not the entire premise. [...]

  • Brittany commented on the blog post Tennesse doesn’t even want kids to hold hands until marriage   2 years, 6 months ago · View

    Guys, Kif Kroker got pregnant from hand holding! It’s not funny!

    But yes, holding hands and kissing are gateways to sex. So is smiling, saying “I like you”, flirting and looking at each other.

  • The logic astounds me. “They’re killing babies in there,” so you decide to bomb the place, killing adults?

  • Brittany commented on the blog post Update: Miss Universe to allow trans woman back into pageant   2 years, 7 months ago · View

    “Miss Universe rules stipulate that contestants must be a ‘naturally born female’”

    Except she was born a female. A female in a man’s body. At least, that’s what I understand trans gender to be.
