1. The fundamental beliefs underlying Stop Patriarchy belittle and disenfranchise all who have not “come around” to their revolutionary communist agenda. They use broad brush progressive language to lure in the inattentive, while doing active harm in the communities they purport to help.
    Read this whole letter, right now. Fuck Stop Patriarchy.
  2. I’ve kept my mouth at least partially shut on Stop Patriarchy for quite some time, mostly due to my not wanting to confuse my opposition to their tactics, tone-deafness and co-opting style with an opposition to their position on abortion availability. I am, absolutely, without exception, all in favor of abortion on demand. State funded, in fact. However. Fuck Stop Patriarchy.
    Thank you, Katie Klabusich, for putting into words and rationale what I have only been able to put into unhinged, unsuppressed vitriol.
  3. This is an example of my concern with the new gun law that people will take the law into their own hands which we will not tolerate.

  4. Irin Carmon is probably one of my favorite journalists at the moment, possibly forever.

    (If you’ve noticed a paucity in content here, consider that it might be because I’ve been sending out press releases, fielding calls from reporters, shouting at white men in the subway for minor infractions, and/or plotting grand-scale revenge.)

  5. “The Wilks brothers worry that America’s declining morals will especially hurt the younger generation, so they’re using the riches that the Lord has blessed them with to back specific goals.” One of those goals may be David Lane’s insistence that politicians make the Bible a primary textbook in public schools.
  6. Tip for dudes who get all het up over some bullshit that turns out to be transparently obvious trolling: If you see something on social media that so perfectly illustrates and confirms everything you suspect about feminists/POC/LGBT/whoever you happen to have a grudge against, STOP A MOMENT AND CONSIDER that it might just be TOO perfect.

    I mean, has Alex Jones taught you NOTHING?

  7. Much as the phrase “eat shit and die” keeps running through my mind as a response to the WaPo story, I wonder: How much excrement can one consume before expiring? I invite the authors of the original article, and Adam “My Bad” Kushner, to experiment with that.

  8. The only situation in which a woman or her family’s wishes could override a doctor’s government-sanctioned order to initiate “life-sustaining procedures” would be if she had a will that specified “do not resuscitate” while pregnant. The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Austin Badon, D-New Orleans, directs doctors to make the call, erring on the side of protecting the fetus, in the event that there’s any legal ambiguity. Badon defined ambiguity in that situation as a DNR order that fails to specify “while pregnant.”

  10. Though on any given day, fewer than 1,800 registered members log on to Stormfront, and less than half of the site’s visitors even reside in the United States, a two-year study by the Intelligence Report shows that registered Stormfront users have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most lethal hate crimes and mass killings since the site was put up in 1995. In the past five years alone, Stormfront members have murdered close to 100 people. The Report’s research shows that Stormfront’s bias-related murder rate began to accelerate rapidly in early 2009, after Barack Obama became the nation’s first black president.
    Elliott Rodger was a “wound collector,” too.
