But there’s a lot of bad news too, including Ray Rice’s two-fucking-game suspension, assaults at SDCC, and slut-shaming Nicki Minaj and the Bachelorette. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply. Read More This Week in Misogyny is Staging a Topless Protest

Rick Santorum May Be Our Friend

I am, by birth, a political junkie and, I suspect that once the dust clears and the Republicans have settled on their candidate I will begin to pay closer attention to what the candidates are saying. That said, it is not possible to ignore some of the more glaringly obvious nitwiticisms that have been spoken during this nominating season.  Read More Rick Santorum May Be Our Friend

But Rick Cooks and Rick Cleans: Rick Santorum’s Real Stance on Women

And here we go again with another post showing the wonderful regard that Rick Santorum supposedly has for women and for their place in society! Trigger warning for inflammatory, insulting statements on Santorum’s part that would cause one not only to cringe, but to foam at the mouth with anger and turn into a raging She-Hulk. Yes, it’s that bad, Persephoneers. Read More But Rick Cooks and Rick Cleans: Rick Santorum’s Real Stance on Women

This Weekend OT is Going to be Super!

It is the weekend before Super Tuesday, and you know what that means! Lots of news articles about how women can’t be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies, candidates proclaiming that we should all be living according to the Christian God’s Planâ„¢, and really, really, really rich people explaining that they really, really, really get what it means to be struggling to make ends meet.

News Appetizers: Because Journalism Tastes Better With Sass

Kittens, it’s Wednesday. That means we have survived another few days, which is a damn miracle if you gauge it by the news. So suck down those mixed drinks and put on a brave face: we are diving into the mid-week news, where sexism is officially dead, we’re post-racial, and like that nice little fish in the movie says, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” Read More News Appetizers: Because Journalism Tastes Better With Sass

The GOP Primaries: Welcome to The Wacky Races

As we all know, election season is now upon us. Like Christmas, it begins earlier each year, much to the dismay of those shopping for cereal and end up finding stockings, exclaiming, “For fuck’s sake, it’s July!” Yes, the beginning of the GOP primary debates.
