You Throw Like A Girl: The Language Of Misogyny (VIDEO)

My husband and I went for a walk Tuesday afternoon. The temperature was in the high 40’s, and he brought along a pair of earmuffs. I mentioned this as we were leaving the house, and he said “If I don’t, my bad ear will start to hurt, and I’ll whine like a little girl.” Now, […]

New Hampshire Republican Goes Off On Disgusting Misogynistic Rant About Democrat’s Looks

A Republican state lawmaker in New Hampshire, Rep. Steve Vaillancourt, recently wrote an article where he made several disgusting remarks about the appearance of Democratic United States Rep. Ann McLane Kuster. “Let’s be honest,” Vaillancourt wrote. “Does anyone not believe that Congressman Annie Kuster is as ugly as sin? And I hope I haven’t offended sin.” […]

Oklahoma’s New Divorce Law Is Wrong, And Dangerous

Oklahoma is a key state of interest for me for though I have several awesome progressive friends in the state and though my own family has roots there, yet it’s proudly one of the most conservative states in the union. Hobby Lobby and James Linkford help to highlight the point that it’s also one of the most dangerous to […]

Todd Kincannon, #YesAllWomen, and the UCSB killings

Todd Kincannon, a man I enjoy ignoring, unfortunately oozed his way back onto my radar the morning of Memorial Day. Madison Kimrey posted a screenshot of Todd Kincannon’s Twitter feed, which contained a comment he wrote about the shooting victims in California: No idea how my son will die, but I know it won’t be […]

Three Reasons to Take the White Man March Kinda Seriously

So the White Man March was both a bust in itself and a boon for Twitter humor. How many White Power People showed up across the nation with their “genocide” banners? 50? “Multicultural diversity is genocide” – that’s their rally cry? Genocide of what? Genocide of barbershop quartets? Genocide of turkey stuffing? Sorry, I’ll take […]

Maybe Fox News’ Todd Starnes Has a Creepy Thing for Michelle Obama

Todd Starnes is a radio host for Fox News Radio, a frequent guest for Fox News shows, and a columnist for – you’ll never guess – FoxNews.Com. He’s also a prolific Twitter user and Facebook updater. Like his colleagues, he’s an unapologetic liar, an open misogynist and a barely hidden racist. Oh, and while some […]

New Year’s Resolution: To Find Better Insults

It never fails. When the progressive press features an image or story of yet another Sarah Palin, Duck Dynasty, Tea Party, Michelle Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, the insults flail. The fact that they’re being insulted isn’t the problem, though. It’s how they’re insulted – using terms consisting of  words like ‘stupid,’ ‘crazy,’ ‘schizo,’  ‘insane,’ […]

Does John Stossel Not Like Babies?

When I was a kid, I used to always watch whatever it was my grandma was watching, though usually detached. I didn’t have a heart for the sexy mustachioed “Magnum PI,” but I did kind of watch “The Equalizer.” And then there was “20/20.” These old people talked about everything with such pathos and authority […]

Despite What Rick Warren and Others May Think, Abortion Isn’t Satanism

No, this isn’t satire – although it’s triggered by a sarcastic response to anti-abortion protesters. It’s one of those things that make you go, is there any way to effectively satirize some groups of people? It seems like we can’t go any deeper into absurdity than they already are at. So there was this tweet […]
