Welcome, everyone. Hope you had a good weekend!
Greetings, citizens! This week we have another mix of the bad, the dangerous and the downright depressing, but as always, there’s hope.
I wish we didn’t publish as early as we did because last Sunday was a busy day for news!
It’s not too often that I have much to say on the subject of sports, but we’ve got a few stories of note this week, as well as some new hurdles to LGBT equality. Throw in some medical/science-y bits, and we’ve got ourselves a newsy roundup. Let’s get to it:
In honor of the big sporting event that took place last night in the States, I’ll devote some stories to sports, but I’ll take care of other news, too (and hopefully give some levity from some depressing news).
The Thanksgiving holiday in the US meant that This Week in Misogyny took last week off. Misogyny, however, didn’t do me a favor and kept right on rolling. It’s a world of fun below the cut! (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)
Nice Guys™ and MRAs! “Fake” geek girls and cosplayers! Lesbian cookies! There’s something for everyone this week. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

It’s an age-old argument – one that pre-dates our marriage by at least three years. An argument that is rooted in the very beginnings of our falling in love: “No, you can’t be in our league.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted from the ups and downs in the news this week. Wendy Davis is a big damn hero, but her efforts may be for nothing. SCOTUS’s decision on DOMA was a win for”¦ conservatives? My head is reeling. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
In Phoenix’s 110-plus degree summers, my husband survived high school football practices where coaches sometimes withheld water or made players run laps without stopping until they puked. When he told me about it, I was bewildered. “Why didn’t you just walk off the field?” That’s what high-school-me would have done in a similar situation. Then […]
Being from the San Francisco area, I was one of many locals horrified by Chris Culliver’s homophobic remarks last week (about how he’d never play with a gay team-mate – “We don’t got no gay people on the team. You know, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet […]
