Wednesday morning Fox News feminism drinking game!

“Women want less government in their lives. They want to make their own decisions. They want freedom to choose for their children, their families. That’s what women really want.”

You are so spot on, Morgan Brittany. I can’t wait to see you next weekend outside an abortion clinic, escorting patients inside so they can obtain safe, legal abortion care. Right? Wrong. So, so wrong.

You can actually turn this video into a drinking game…

Quote of the Day: Common Core will turn “every one of your children” gay

Clearly, I’m not reading enough conservative media because somehow I missed the memo that the Common Core educational standards are actually an evil socialist plot to turn American into Nazi Germany. The latest dire prediction from the right wing comes from Florida State Rep. Charles Van Zant, who warns that the organization implementing the standards in the state has a secret agenda to turn children gay

Quote of the Day: Ashley Judd is just like Todd Akin

In the latest conservative attempt to discredit Ashley Judd before she’s even said she’s running for the Senate, the Daily Caller points to her history of “bizarre” feminist comments:

By getting in the race with this sort of baggage, Judd runs the risk of being portrayed as a Todd Akin-esque candidate – meaning voters simply decide she’s unqualified to serve as a senator, because her comments are so outrageous and extreme that people can’t bring themselves to vote for her.

LOL. Yep, recognizing that sexism exists and believing that is a problem is “outrageous” and “extreme.” Totally the same as taking the fringe position of opposing abortion in cases of rape and making offensive–and scientifically ignorant–comments suggesting that women regularly ...

Quote of the Day: Your uterus is a “graveyard for lots and lots of little babies”

Talk radio host Kevin Swanson has, um, a theory:

I’m beginning to get some evidence from certain doctors and certain scientists that have done research on women’s wombs after they’ve gone through the surgery, and they’ve compared the wombs of women who were on the birth control pill to those who were not on the birth control pill. And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots ...

Obama announces new DHS immigration policy; right wingers sh*t themselves

As you’ve probably read, President Obama made what people are calling a surprise move on Friday by announcing that the Department of Homeland Security will relax immigration policy in efforts to halt the deportation of young undocumented immigrants. Some DREAM activists say this announcement is merely a reinforcement of not-so-successful efforts announced year ago by the administration that they would halt the deportation of many DREAMers and other young undocumented youth. Friday’s announcement also came during the same week that DREAMers had begun to stage a number of actions at different Obama campaign offices across the country.

But administration officials identify the policy as an evolution of the former one made last year, indicating that the clearly defined specifics ...

That Awful Moment when the House implicitly endorses violence against women

House Republicans have stooped low in their all-out war on women by turning an issue that has never been bipartisan–that violence against women is a bad thing–into a partisan one voting 222-206 in support of a ridiculous, callous and watered down version of the Violence Against Women Act. As Vanessa noted Tuesday, it was slated to be voted on Wednesday with the hope that they wouldn’t pass the watered down version the House produced–but we should only be so hopeful.

This bill denies protection of undocumented immigrants, Native/indigenous people and LGBT victims of violence. Distinguishing these populations that are actually highly vulnerable and susceptible to violence is uniquely callous. What could motivate such thinking? Well, Amanda looked through the list ...
