To folks who finally care about Trump

I think it’s absolutely bomb (unapologetically using my favorite circa 2003 adjective despite being Muslim) that so many feminists I’ve never or rarely seen say something about Islamophobia are now saying something about Islamophobia

Largest academic feminist organization in North America backs Israel boycott

“What is significant about this particular resolution is the rationale; the fact that the resolution makes it explicit that BDS is a feminist issue, that it is an expression of transnational feminist solidarity and that one cannot call themselves a feminist and address inequalities and injustices without taking a stand on what is happening in Palestine.” —Simona Sharoni, Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at SUNY Plattsburgh

Quick hit: The last presidential emcee battle

So the biggest fallout from the last presidential debate of 2012 might be the most awesome MC diss made by head of state to an opposing candidate. Followed by the best commander-in-chief mansplaining I’ve ever seen in the history of evers:

And the interenets responded with the kind of gumption and American ingenuity that I’d expect.

Perhaps Ann’s round up of responses best captures our collective reactions to the tit for tat between Romney and Obama in this last face off as we head into the final stretch of the forever presidential race.
