What The Hellary ?!?! – Take Two

Sometimes, Girl, You Are Killing Me
by
Whenever an egregious story about Hillary Clinton breaks, some of my more conservative friends immediately ask me if I have “finally come to my senses.” Because they generally are civil and intelligent people who argue with evidence and reasoning instead of just screaming at me or forwarding nonsense, I pay more attention to their zingers.

French fashion policing just got very ugly.

Get Your Laws Off My Bathing Suit

by
The rules about women’s swimwear are always changing and can be very different from place to place. Most customs and laws have been trending towards allowing more of our bodies to be exposed while in swimwear, but still declare a few bits of lady skin to be taboo and not suitable for public. Now, several [&hellip

Congress just passed a bill that will require all American users of social media to obtain certification and be registered in a nationwide database before they can post content to any U.S. based social media platform.

Did You Know That Sexism Was Over?

Did you know that sexism was over? Me neither. Because it’s not. Like not even remotely. When we first saw the Interwebz telling us that 56% of men think sexism is over (according to a recent survey by Pew) we laughed so hard that wine came out of our noses. This had to be a [&hellip

Even When It Really Should

It Does Not Go Without Saying

CNN was on at the gym the other day and there was actually a headline saying “Saudis Should Stop Bombing Hospitals, Schools.” Because we live in a world where apparently it does not go without saying that everyone should just know that bombing a hospital or a school is really terrible.

Political turmoil and inaction are enabling the spread of deadly diseases.

Politics is Making People Sick, Literally

by
With no reported polio cases since July of 2014, Nigeria was supposed to be celebrating 2 years free of the disease. Instead, a new large-scale vaccination campaign was launched after two children were diagnosed with polio last week. This virus is genetically linked to a strain that was seen in 2011, which means it has [&hellip

Failing Ourselves and Our Communities One Injustice At a Time

We Want The Police To Fail

by
Reading through the recently-released Department of Justice report on its 14-month investigation into the practices of the Baltimore City Police Department produces many different reactions. For some, total denial of any wrongdoing on the part of the police. For others, the response is more of a shrug, sort of “what did you expect? Of c

In the near future, once President Obama has left the oval office, there will be analysis of his legacy based on how well he delivered on the promises he made during his campaigns.

My dad used to like to pretend bad things just didn’t happen.

So. Many. Things.

It’s the Olympics, What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

The Olympics are supposed to be about the global community coming together in the spirit of friendly competition to celebrate elite athletes. But of course humans are the absolute worst, so the Olympics never end up being that good or that simple. We let companies shamelessly and un-ironically use the Olympics to sell things like [&hellip
