Happy Friday, unicorns! Let’s see you into the weekend with some science, entertainment news, and more.

I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and […]

This week, more often than not, I was incredibly angry with what is going on in the world. Denmark wants to put border controls back up ““ oh, and they also want to cherry-pick immigrants and an opposition leader and his wife were sentenced by court in Belarus.

Welcome to the Persephone ESC Countdown! We’re off to Cyprus and Denmark today.
It’s been a busy week in Europe. Germany and Italy are fighting about refugees, a Danish court lifts patient confidentiality, free press is still no reality in Belarus and more.
