Oh the fuckery. Why doesn’t the GOP just come out and say “Girls you are too stupid and emotional to make informed decisions so we will tell you what you can and can’t do with your bodies.” They do know that, as crazy as it may sound, women are allowed to vote. Do they think women are so stupid that they will vote for a party who has been working overtime to strip them...

monagray: by Michael Skolnik, the Global Grind. “…..But, the part that doesn’t sit well with me is that all of the messengers of this message are all black too. I mean, it was only two weeks ago when almost every white person I knew was tweeting about stopping a brutal African warlord from killing more innocent children. And they even took thirty minutes out of their busy schedules to watch...

In another battle story from the war on women: this legislator thinks some women may not know the difference between rape and consensual martial sex. He believes before being allowed to have an abortion the doctor should send the patient home to really think about weather or not they were raped or just had sex. This week, Idaho’s state legislature joined the ranks of state lawmaking...

Heart braking & mind boggling. If you want to kill someone and get away with it, do it during half time of the NBA All-Star game. Appoint yourself captain of the neighborhood watch.

Very interesting article on the role single women may play in the Democratic party. There’s a new voting bloc on the rise and, unfortunately for Republicans, it’s not the aging, disaffected, white male small business owner who hauled himself up by his bootstraps to teach himself accounting and microeconomics because he’d be damned if he’d sit through a single lecture at...

It’s been a roller coaster ride of a year for women and their ladyparts, thanks in large part to people who know nothing about birth control trying to discuss the nuances of birth control.

Good article on the concept of sex addiction. The idea of someone being addicted to sex in the same way someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol never sat right with me. -Rachel

Did you know that the US still bans gay and bisexual men (or, as the gov’t likes to say, men who have sex with men) from donating blood. There is no legitimate reason for this policy to remain in place and Emily Horowitz & Josh Parrish are trying to get the federal government to recognize this fact. You can read the article they wrote for the Huffington Post by clicking on the link. ...

Wisconsin, that land of beer, cheese, and Aaron Rodgers jerseys, has had a tough couple of years, government-wise. First, they elected a bunch of, from what I can tell, taxidermied badgers holding guns to state legislature. More fuckery in Wisconsin. Due to the fact that the majority of single parents are women this legislation is yet another attack on women. -Rachel
