Ok, gonna post this before we get on the road. I get asked a lot to explain net neutrality, and this is one of the best explanations I’ve heard: Watch the vid, then click here and make noise. If you want a glimpse at who is responsible for this? Look at your local internet/cable provider: [Read more...]
Totally settled on a wedding ring. :) Couldn’t keep this clip from playing in my head: Here’s the actual ring, all Doctor Who to match the wedding. We spent yesterday shopping for decorations (and will do the same for part of today). We’re also trying to find my oddly-shaped body a suit that looks like [Read More...]
Had to post this before hitting the road. Consider it a kind of morning happiness. In Colorado, at least, they’re not giving people exemptions to discrimination laws because Jesus makes them moral enough. Jack Philips is a baker who refused to serve a gay couple getting married (in Massachusetts, the reception was in CO). They [Read More...]
Ok, Michaelyn and I are driving 2.5 hours to the big city today on the hunt for wedding rings (squeee!). We’ll visit my brother and watch the LCS today before heading out to stores. But stores suck and they’re so unoriginal. Here’s where you come in. We’re having a Doctor Who themed wedding. We don’t [Read More...]
The National Organization For Marriage (which is a strangely named organization since it seeks to prevent marriages) were naughty boys in Maine when they were trying to get a gay marriage ban on the ballot. And now they will pay the hefty price for it: NOM contributed more than $2 million to the $3 million [Read More...]
There’s quite a bit of research showing that people are more likely to trust a Christian in the United States. Many odious people, many of them Christian, have figured out they can capitalize on this: The president of a South Carolina Bible college was charged last week with essentially treating foreign students as slaves by [Read More...]
Did I say that mental illness was responsible for Elliot Rodger’s rampage? I’m sorry. What I should’ve said was that atheism and its activists are responsible, at least according to a piece published today on the Charisma website, Tom Snyder and Ted Baehr of Movieguide: Where did this young murderer get his narcissistic views about [Read More...]
The Texas GOP has decided to exclude the Log Cabin Republicans from its convention, because apparently what they need once the presidential election rolls around is a clear example of how the party is still hardcore anti-gay: Two Republican gay rights groups said on Thursday they had been denied booths at the party’s upcoming Texas [Read More...]
There is a debate going on as to whether or not Elliot Rodger, the man who recently went on a killing spree in California, was mentally ill or if he was sane and driven by sexism. Because mental illness is important to me, I feel the need to weigh in. Jaclyn Glenn put out a [Read More...]

Oh Utah… What really kills me is this statement: “We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we`re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,” said Terry E. Shoemaker, who is the [Read More...]
Teacher and administrator at public school shame student for not standing/reciting the pledge of allegiance.
It’s a pity when ideological bullies get placed into a position of power over children. The Southside High School sophomore, who took issue with the pledge’s “under God” clause, sought legal assistance from the secular advocacy group after her high school teacher reportedly threatened her with disciplinary action if she did not rise for the [Read More...]
Detroit: as education and access to contraception dwindle, abortion rate goes up. Who’d have thunk it?
What if I told you…that if you take away education and access to contraception that the abortion rate goes through the fucking roof? Nearly one-third of all pregnancies in the city of Detroit end in abortion, a statistic public health officials blame on rising poverty and dwindling access to affordable contraception. Of an estimated 18,360 [Read More...]
