STFU, Conservatives updated their status.

Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.

I'm sorry.

I keep seeing this page get new likes and I'm not entirely sure why. I don't run STFU, Conservatives (or any Tumblr blog) any more, but I still work in journalism and write about politics -- I just get paid to do it now! Cheers, readers, and thanks for all the fun. - Jess

She’s speaking so that their voices, silenced by legislators, will be heard.

We’re incredibly proud to cheer on Senator Davis and all of the women’s health advocates who have been fighting to stop this attack on women’s health. *SHARE* this if you stand with Wendy, and watch her as she stands up for all women—in Texas and across the country:

Hi @thelindywest, I writed you a thing:

Oh goodie, you guys. We get to do the "no but for real, rape jokes aren't funny and saying that doesn't threaten your freedom of speech" runaround...

We’re shoving a damp vagina in God’s face by applauding a slow, stilted path toward gender equality. Look at the natural world! Have you ever seen a girl dog bring home a bigger paycheck than a boy dog? I didn’t think so. That’s nature.

Folks, you know me. I like to see people embrace science and statistics to back up their opinions. I consider it a personal point of pride when I can get someone to change their mind by showing them the evidence. Which is why I was just delighted to see Erick Erickson use science to back up his asse...

So yesterday, stand-up-comedian-slash-fat-dad Jim Gaffigan decided to make what he thought was a mostly harmless joke about women and their nails.

Just how bad is it? Spoiler alert: It's bad.

Sorry about the lack of updates - I'm fighting Death Cold right now. Hopefully I'll be out of bed and back fighting the good fight in the next couple days!

“Gun violence is a mental health issue only to a very small extent and to a much smaller extent than most people assume,” said Paul Appelbaum, a psychiatrist and the director of the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons’ Division of Law, Ethics and Psychiatry.

“Most gun violence is just not committed by people with mental illness,” he said. “Were we somehow to stop violence by anyone with a mental illness — as unlikely as that outcome might be — we would be s...afer, but only a teeny bit safer. As much as these incidents attract everybody’s attention and concern, they are a tiny fraction of the people who get killed in this country every year.”

In other words: stop saying "guns don't kill people, crazy people kill people!" It's just. not. true.…/mental-health-gun-violence_…
