Major, major signal boost: A black police officer was shot 28 times… and is going to jail for somehow attacking other police officers while this was happening.

“According to Jezebel, there appears to be a group of fans who are displeased that black actors were cast to portray Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), Rue (Amandla Stenberg) and Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi). While Cinna’s complexion isn’t described in the novel, author Suzanne Collins does describe the latter two characters as both having dark skin.”
The War Against Obesity now starts well before toddlerhood now!!
Barely covered in the news: Rick Santorum calls the president a
“government nig-” then stutters a bit. If it makes you feel any
better, the article’s writer has a learning moment on privilege.
A woman named Ciara LaVelle of the Miami New Times wrote a very
ignorant, condescending article about going to Wrestlemania 28 and
sure enough, she’s been dogpiled with misogynist insults in the
comment section. One comment (on another forum) that made me cringe
was a female poster and self-professed feminist calling the author a
bitch and a stupid cow. *face-palm*
Planned Parenthood says “no” to a donation, because it’s from a misogynist. HOORAY FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD, and politically and economically supporting women’s rights to medical health in a safe, RESPECTFUL, feminist environment!
The Miscarriage Chronicles continue
Pink Slime going out of business.
Race and A Game of Thrones
The myth of the suffering artist

From Shakesville, a poll conducted by Jamelle Bouie exposes White
Americans’ willful ignorance/antipathy towards the systemic economic
disparities of Black Americans, AKA: LOL BOOTSTRAPS
From SF_Drama, Riley AKA Gisei_Ni_Nashi is a misogynist, rape
apologist, ableist fuck-wad. They also don’t know how highlighting and
color theory works.
I’m specifically calling your attention to number nine on the table,
where it requires a note from your doctor or your Christian Science
Practitioner to get out of jury duty– I refuse to believe Christian
Scientists are the only religion out there that prohibits its
adherents from seeing a doctor, and therefore there is no reason to
specifically allow them rather than having a broader rule about a note
from your religious practitioner if your religion prohibits you from
seeing a doctor.
Internet racism/haterade for ABG.
On the animosity towards women and reproductive justice.
An article talking about how Mitt Romney knows what women want because his wife Ann tells him. Aside from some of the claims he makes (apparently, you women who are reading this don’t really care about contraception rights), the article later makes a point about Mitt sending Ann to campaign to women for him: “It’s a fact of political life that candidates’ wives, who generally enjoy high favorables, hit the trail to tout their husbands, humanizing them in a way that no one else can. But given the mounting evidence that Romney will have to work tirelessly to woo women to his side, admitting that he doesn’t engage with a constituency that’s roughly half the U.S. population directly seems a bizarre strategy.” Or as a commenter on the forum where I heard of the article succinctly put it: “Getting women to vote for you is apparently women’s work. It’s just not worth the time of important men.”
