Planned Parenthood: Battle of the Babies

Planned Parenthood: Battle of the Babies

I also wanted to call this piece, “Why Arguing About Abortion Rights Allows Politicians to Fuck You (And Make You Keep the Baby),” but I thought that ran a little long. As evidenced by my last post, I’m very tired of abortion. I’m not tired of having them – god no – I’m just tired of hearing people argue against them. I think… Read More »

Debates Round 2: What They Should Really Be Talking About

Tonight marks the second Republican debate – this time hosted by CNN – this time still featuring idiots. It makes no difference what station these people appear on, though perhaps there will be less riotous applause from the audience when the contestants (because this is America’s greatest pageant) spew hateful rhetoric.

It doesn’t help when the humor is coming from the news. I’m talking, of course, about the coverage of the Baltimore riots and the shockingly violent and mysterious death of Freddie… Read More »

Why We Can’t Have Nice Things: Religion Edition

In honor of Easter, Pascha, Passover, Holy Week, the rising sun, the solar eclipse, the lunar cycle, menstruation, and Going Clear… I think it’s time we talk about why your religion doesn’t matter. I’m not talking about why religion as a whole does not matter. I’m talking about specifically your religion. Or, perhaps, your interpretation of your religion. And here’s why. We… Read More »
