If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president.

Ann Coulter (via goodreasonnews)

Why doesn’t she start by not voting herself? This is the kind of thinking that baffles me. How can some women be so anti-women?

(via rosyeyes)

As much of a bitch as she is, I think she’s at least partially right about this, in that women overwhelming vote left, as do minorities, people under 35, parents with young children, and working class Americans. The only way the right-wing wins anything is by encouraging apathy and intimidation. Coulter’s right. If women don’t vote, if too few women vote, we end up with corporatist bastards running the country. In 2000 less than 55% of women voted and we got George Bush. In 2008, Over 65% of women voted and we got Barack Obama.

Focus on the Family Didn't Receive Enough Donations to Cover Its Budget For the 2nd Year in a Row →

manicchill:

I guess the hate business ain’t what it used to be.

The Colorado Springs, Colo.-based, group, which James Dobson founded in 1977, is projected to end the 2011 fiscal year, on Sept. 30, with a $105 million budget; however, Focus only brought in $90 million to $95 million in donations this year. The organization is responding to the funding reduction with a 7-percent staff reduction.

“God has never promised us a certain budget number,” said Gary Schneeberger, vice president of communications for Focus on the Family (FoF), in a statement. “He’s only called us to spend the money He provides responsibly and to help as many families as possible. That’s what we’ll continue to do.”

In the last 10 years, FoF’s staff has been reduced by more than half. In 2002, FoF had about 1,400 employees; once the layoffs go through, it will have about 650 people on staff.

Converts to Islam say their choice wasn't made lightly →

nothingbutchris:

A Houston Chronicle article concerning the conversions of two women to Islam in a politically charged climate. A brief sample of some of the comments the article received:

“”Converting” to Islam after 9/11 would kind of be like surrendering to our attackers, wouldn’t it? Kind of disgraceful in my opinion. If their parents had died from choking on a bowl of pasta, would they have become Pastafarians?”

“Well, I meant to say all Muslims are NOT radical, but all terrorists have been Muslim.
And I still don’t see these Muslim Americans, or any other of them - fighting and standing up against the radicals”

“When I see a musslim in a store I watch them because I don’t trust any of them. Why would a women want to be a muzzy is beyond me. I will not trade in any store that they work in.”

hahahaha, the part i bolded is so stupid I’m convinced it’s a really great joke.

There are so many reasons why this is wrong. First: even if we were talking sexes and not genders (biological/physical) there would still be more than two. Sometimes people have male sex characteristics but two x chromosomes. Sometimes it goes the opposite way. Some people have 2 x chromosomes and one y.  Some male fetuses are exposed to lots of female hormones giving them the appearance of being female. I could go on forever. My point is that it isn’t that simple. Second:   Gender is socially constructed and the two are not mutually exclusive. I can be female (sex) but male (gender). My gender could simply be undefined.   Not only is this hatemongering, it is complete ignorance about how society influences gender and how we define male and female. There are more than two genders and there are more than two sexes. (Even some doctors have misclassified children after doing every possible test.)  Yes for the majority of people it’s not complicated but for some it is.  Let people tell you where they fit in the grand scheme of things.

I’m not entirely sure why this matters to some people. Some people don’t view gender the same way you always thought it was, but it impacts your life only in the once out of every couple of hundred people you meet. Big whoop. Why would anyone make a big deal out of it? One thing I know is that this kind of reactionary anger toward something you don’t understand is a typically conservative style of thinking. Defensive, closed-minded, unmotivated fury. It reeks of immaturity and that’s the true calling card of the conservative way of life.

Well, God is how we got here. God may have done it in the blink of the eye or he may have done it over this long period of time, I don’t know. But I know how it got started.

Joe Walsh, Republican/Deadbeat dad, tries to tell President Obama to “quit lying.” His ‘wife’ has a similar message for him.
