I know some people were shocked when the $1 million report filed by the Christie-friendly law firm of Randy Mastro found that after interviewing scores of people and (possibly) reading reams of documents, emails, texts, etc., that this entire misunderstanding — let’s just call it a misunderstanding, OK? — was the result of an emotional, scorned woman. The truth is that nobody should have been surprised at all — that the foul odor of sexism, larded with misogyny, has followed Christie and the men with whom he has surrounded himself long before the boys even rolled into Trenton.
Even if you just started paying attention to Christie 10 weeks ago, the governor’s sexist attitudes were hiding in plain sight. At the governor’s infamous, 109-minute press conference, you could see the divergence as the one female aide linked to the scandal — Christie’s deputy chief of staff Bridget Ann Kelly — was fired on the spot, immediately branded as “stupid,” and singled out for lying. Meanwhile, Kelly’s predecessor in the job who then became Christie’s campaign manager and had been in line to run Christie ‘16, Bill Stepien, was also cut off but in much kinder terms; the governor made a point of stating “I am sad today to have to take this action.” He didn’t seem sad about poor Bridget at all — but at the time you could at least argue that 1) Kelly was the one (known) scandal figure in Christie’s direct employ and 2) her actions — emailing “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee” — were, arguably, worse.
An anti-abortion group is making public the private information of abortion providers. This is terrorism. But they feel justified in committing it because of bad information they have about the nature of reality. Indeed, if I operated under the illusions they operate under I might have good reason to behave this way too. It’s inhumane, sure, but when you believe in gods and everlasting souls, you have something at stake more important than humanity.
I agree that Bill Maher deserves to be whipped, if the Bible is true. However, since there’s no reason to think the bible is true, I’m forced to come up with a humane way of dealing with things. That’s the difference between an evangelical and a humanist: Evangelicals can think of reasons to whip people.

One of the more popular sources of renewable energy happens to be wind turbines. Operating on large wind farms, the spinning blades twirl a shaft connected to a generator that produces electricity, though the amount of energy obtained depends on a variety of factors, including: bodies of water, vegetation, and differences in terrain.
In past years, however, critics have pointed out that the noise…

Fox’s Brian Kilmeade advises women lawyers to use their “great bodies” to get ahead in court- and this isn’t the first time he has used his media platform to discuss women’s bodies and perpetuate sexism.
Here’s someone who really deserves to be yanked from the airwaves. Where’s the cancelkilmeade hashtag?
