In another installment of our favorite sad series, Yes Virginia, it is all men. Men at the ARS Electronica Festival gang raped an AI sex doll into being so broke it couldn’t ride business class back to Barcelona but had to suffer the humiliation of being sent freight. It ain’t like the AI programmers coulda anticipated this situation and installed an more appropriate response than the moaning it does in response to having its breasts or hips touched.
A guy goes out of his way to take an upskirt photo of a celeb, and it is a wardrobe malfunction and we don’t learn his name! He’s committed sexual assault with his fucking camera, he keeps his anonymity and his job and his future. Rape Culture right there.
Recently, Stanford psychologist, Robert Sutton, published “The Asshole Survival Guide,” his recommendations on how to deal with the assholes in your life based on his study of assholes. He was interviewed over at Vox. Such fun!
Here’s how to help the people of Puerto Rico directly. Puerto Rico is part of the US. The people living there are Americans. Americans are hurting. Donate now. Donate more directly to the people in Puerto Rico.
Katy Commits the Ultimate Sin, Stands up to the Ol’ Pussy Grabber, Chapters 1 – 3 of “Unbelievable” Reviewed
I’m reviewing Katy Tur’s “Unbelievable” in three parts! It’s that good! Fantastic treatment of the campaign, covering a campaign, being a reporter, and being a human being caught up in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s gaslighting narcissistic abuse meat grinder. Katy comes out on the other side stronger and better for it… and you will, too.
Don’t get fatigued! Continue calling Senators about healthcare and continue donating relieve and recover from all the natural disasters we’ve had this summer and fall. Vox tells us how… again!
Perhaps trolling on social media has not only become the national past time, but also the new opiate of the masses.
The prospect of our last chance at halting climate change, of being at the center of the world stage, of being the most powerful nation in the history of world being wasted by having the Ol’ Pussy Grabber at the helm is depressing and troubling.
Clinton’s book is about sexism and intimidating women. Tur’s book is about sexual assault. How many women have experienced sexual aggression? How many men have committed sexual aggression?
White privilege means that white needs, wants, and sensitivities are all assumed. Non-whites know how to act white. White people only know how to act white. White people need to end racism. We can make a down payment on that by relinquishing any and all claims to the n-word.
The only thing faster than twitter is stupid, and when the two get together, you often end up with the dangers of stupid. More mea culpa on the dangers of stupid sarcastic sexism.
Twitter is fast. It is measured in seconds, the speed of the internet link. I stumbled through being misunderstood and told about it on the twitter today and I’ve had some thoughts. Spoiler: liberals are nicer than you think.
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is ending DACA… sort of. Everything about his announcement from handing it off to Jeff Sessions, to delaying it for six months, to threatening to revisit it if Congress can “legalize” it smacks of needless cruelty and actual institutional and structural violence.
Our democracy is a binary winner take all choice. You helped a candidate win by voting for her or a candidate who didn’t have a chance or you voted for the loser. You own your vote. You own her policies, laws, and governing style. #YouAreYourVote
If he’s talking, he’s lying. If he’s not talking, he’s about to lie. The truth ain’t in him.

A woman puts her sexuality on full display, for the entire world to see and touch . Swiss performance artist Milo Moiré hailing from Europe has done just that to fight against sexual violence and rape. What do you think about this artist’s performance…
We can’t seem to erase white supremacy from white culture! Find out how we made white supremacists. Share your ideas about getting rid of this scourge.
Starting with four Southern states voting for Goldwater in 1964, the GOP has relied on the Southern Strategy of dividing the US along racial lines. #VotingCounts
Since 1964, the GOP has been about one thing and one thing only: white supremacy. It is as true as the Civil War was fought over slavery. People will argue with you, but that’s all they got. Nixon’s Southern Strategy has been used by every GOP candidate since. Reagan kicked off his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi for god’s sake. Recharge those righteous indignation batteries to continue the #Resistance!
