Quote of the Day: “Being who you are can take practice”

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Brittney Griner fan. And she continues to impress with this lovely piece in Cosmo — an excerpt from her new memoir — about her “big, long process” of coming out and growing into her own identity.

Quote of the Day: Bill O’Reilly said something hateful and transphobic because it’s a day ending in Y

Bill O’Reilly is a bigot. Bill O’Reilly is an overall unpleasant human being. Bill O’Reilly still has a television show. Bill O’Reilly still gets ridiculously high ratings. Bill O’Reilly still gets those ratings despite, or perhaps because of, the fact he says really absurd, hateful things, such as this:

“Do you see what I’m saying about Colmes? He’s down with the transgender going into the opposite locker room, but he won’t take the kid to Hooters?”

This came during a segment on his Fox News show where Bill O’Reilly bravely defended an Oregon football coach who took his middle school team to Hooters. I know, I know, hold your applause. In the course of this defense, he compared taking 12 year-olds ...

As Congress debates imposing a 20 week ban on abortion, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) urges banning the procedure at 15 or 16 weeks. Why, you ask? Because, simply put, fetuses like to jerk off. And how could we deny them of that god-given right? Burgess, who was also an OB/GYN said:

“Watch a sonogram of a 15-week baby, and they have movements that are purposeful… They stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?”

There is so much to unpack here. First of all, I’m kind of impressed a Republican from Texas would publicly approve of masturbation. ...

Quote of the Day: Man-brain edition

Maine House Minority Leader Ken Fredette explained that he doesn’t support Obamacare’s federal funding for Medicaid expansion because of his “man’s brain.” Via ThinkProgress:

As I listen to the debate today and earlier debate on this bill, I can’t help but think of a title of a book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. And it’s a book about the fact that men sort of think one way in their own brain, in their own world. And women think another way in their own brain and in their own world. And it really talks about the way that men and women can do a better job at communicating. Because if you listen to the debate today, in my mind — ...
