Nothing 'emasculates' a man like marrying a woman!
Michelle Malkin, defender of Japanese internment camps and anti-Semitic "Groypers," has come to rescue Prince Harry from being turned into a woman by virtue of being married to one.
In a tweet yesterday, Malkin used pictures to illustrate how before marrying Meghan Markle, Prince Harry was a manly man who wore nothing but camouflage all of the time always, on every occasion.
Ninety-nine percent of participants say that abortion was the right choice for them.
For years, forced birth enthusiasts have been pushing for waiting periods and required "counseling" based on the belief that abortion is something one does on a whim and will severely regret later. In fact, this is often part of the forced "counseling." Eight states require doctors to tell patients that having an abortion could cause serious damage to their mental health down the road. Many states now require a patient to undergo an invasive ultrasound in order to obtain an abortion — based on the premise that doing so could change their mind and prevent them from making a mistake they would regret later.
Yet, as a person capable of getting pregnant, I have always known exactly what I would do if I were to get knocked up. How could I not? Everyone I've ever known who can get pregnant also knows exactly what they would do — especially since most of them have had at least one pregnancy scare in their lives. Immaculately conceived virgins aside, pregnancy usually doesn't just come out of nowhere.
Also, as a person capable of getting pregnant, I could easily imagine that being forced to have a child against my will would be a hell of a lot more mentally traumatizing than having an abortion. I certainly have known enough people who have had abortions and felt that way themselves.
A groundbreaking study published yesterday revealed that, three years after an abortion, 99% of those who had abortions still maintain they made the right decision for them. Moreover, after five years, the feeling they most associated with their abortion was relief.
Stefan Molyneux needs money!
One of the big downsides to becoming internet famous for being the biggest asshole in the world is that it tends to make it so you can't get any other job. After all! Imagine going to work one day and going to a meeting and seeing the guy who claimed on Twitter that women who wear lipstick to work meetings are basically wearing giant boners on their face?
That would be about as awkward as actually walking into a business meeting with a dildo strapped to your face!
Scrub up, we're going in.
The Harvey Weinstein rape trial started this week in a Manhattan court room where he is being charged with two counts of rape, two counts of predatory sexual assault, and one count of criminal sex act. While opening statements won't start until January 22, this week brought us the beginning of jury selection, along with a whole bunch of drama surrounding it.
Because I've already planned on going to Lush this evening and buying some products with which to take a very long and hot bath, here is a round-up of everything that's gone on this week with all of that!
Finally a church does the right thing in a sex abuse case, and this is what happens?
For several decades now, churches have been criticized for protecting rapists and child molesters. Obviously the Catholic Church, yes, but other denominations have had their share of scandals as well. Like the Mormon Church, which has been criticized for having done absolutely nothing about reported sexual abuse and for treating victims like "sinners." We don't hear a whole lot of stories about churches of any flavor doing the right thing when it comes to rape and child sexual abuse in general.
But we've got one now!
When 47-year-old Timothy Samuel Johnson of Turner, Oregon, confessed to church leaders at the Church of Latter-Day Saints that he had been regularly sexually abusing a girl under the age of 16 — rather than acting like he'd just taken the Lord's name in vain or had an impure thought and assigning him whatever the Mormon version of a few Hail Marys and Our Fathers is, they actually reported him to the police.
Coincidentally this was also what they were supposed to do, legally, as Oregon is one of the 28 states in which clergy are mandated to report child sexual abuse.
Missouri has the third highest murder rate in the country.
"Hello? 911? I would like to report someone exercising their constitutional right to abortion? Yes, she's walking into the very last abortion clinic in the state right now. Yes, I suppose she could be going in for an STI screening or birth control or an ob-gyn appointment, but it could be an abortion, so I'd like you to check up on that and arrest her if need be!"
Abortion, for the time being, is still legal everywhere in the United States of America. But in states like Missouri, they're partying like Roe v. Wade has already been overturned. They're passing laws banning abortion after eight weeks, forcing patients to get medically unnecessary and invasive pelvic exams before having an abortion, and trying to shut down the state's last remaining abortion clinic by tracking the menstrual cycles of patients there.
And when the state legislature begins its 2020 session, they will have a fun new "fetal personhood" bill waiting for them.
Biggest Piece Of Sh*t On Earth Harvey Weinstein Charged With Two More Sexual Assaults In Los Angeles
If convicted, he faces up to 28 years in prison.
It's becoming more and more apparent (we hope) that one way or another Harvey Weinstein will be going to prison for sexual assault. He's facing trial this week in a Manhattan court, and just yesterday was charged with two separate instances of rape and sexual assault in Los Angeles.
On Monday, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced that Weinstein was being charged with raping one woman and sexually assaulting another there, over a two day period in 2013. Weinstein is being charged with "one felony count each of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint."
If convicted, Weinstein could serve up to 28 years in prison.
And that pisses off all the right people.
Last night, during the Golden Globes, host Ricky Gervais implored those accepting awards to not get up and give political speeches, insinuating that, because they were actors, they were too stupid to have opinions about anything.
"So if you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a political platform to make a political speech. You're in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and fuck off. OK?"
(Funny how he doesn't feel that way when he, himself, is expounding on his thoughts on trans people having rights and being treated with respect. Wait no, what is the opposite of that?)
It should come as no surprise that many of those accepting their awards did not give a flying fuck about what Ricky Gervais found personally annoying or whether or not he thought they were smart enough to have opinions, and said what they were going to say anyway. And good for them.
Most poignantly, when actress Michelle Williams came up to accept her award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie — for her performance as Gwen Verdon in FX's Fosse/Verdon — she gave a startlingly personal speech explaining that she would not be there right now accepting that award if she had not been able to have an abortion.

We think it went well!
Julian Castro dropped out of the presidential race last week. That's a bummer. However, he just endorsed Elizabeth Warren this morning, which is awesome! Castro declares Planmaster Liz "the most-qualified, best-equipped candidate to win the nomination." Let's grab some tissue and watch his endorsement video together. It starts with a moving shout-out to the strong women in Castro's life.
CASTRO: There's one candidate I see who's unafraid to fight like hell that America's promise will be there for everyone, who'll make sure that no matter where you live in America or where your family came from in the world, you have a path for opportunity, too. That's why I'm proud to endorse Elizabeth Warren for president.
Trial starts tomorrow. Oh boy.
Tomorrow will begin the criminal trial of Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood movie mogul accused by at least 80 women of sexual assault or harassment.
As you might imagine, the woman who will be leading his team of lawyers is a real piece of work. Donna Rotunno claims that not only are the victims in this particular trial lying, but so is literally every other woman who has accused Weinstein of anything other than cheating on his wife. Apparently, unbeknownst to them, everything was all very consensual. After all, he paid out $25 million to his victims who were unable to bring criminal charges against him in civil court, and is that something a guilty man would do?
These are the three victims bringing criminal charges against Weinstein: a woman who is staying anonymous and claims Weinstein raped her in 2013, Mimi Haleyi, a former personal assistant who claims Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006, and Annabella Sciorra, who played Gloria Trillo on "The Sopranos." Sciorra claims that Weinstein violently raped her in 1993 while the two were working together on the film "The Night We Never Met."
In an appearance on CNN yesterday, Rotunno stated that she doesn't think the testimony of Weinstein's accusers, nor the prior bad acts witnesses, will present a compelling case to the jury.
Does he have no one who loves him enough tell him to stop talking?
Terry Gilliam, as a person, is not entirely unlike his most notorious box office flop, "The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen." You want to like it, it has good people in it, you like the overall premise, but as soon as it starts, you just want it to stop, because it's bad and embarrassing and honestly pretty boring. Also it's about a guy who makes up a bunch of bullshit in hopes of getting people to pity him.
In an interview published today at The Independent about his new film, "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," Gilliam sounded not entirely unlike every garbage man we have ever profiled here:
By his own admission, Terry Gilliam is offensive. But it's not his fault, it's yours. "People work so hard to be offended now," he says with a grin. "I don't know why I'm doing it. It's not fun anymore." He seems to be enjoying himself today, though. The more incendiary his opinion – that the #MeToo movement is a witch hunt; that white men are the real victims; that actually, it's women who hold all the power – the bigger that smile.
I mean, it's not even original. At the very least, you would think Terry Gilliam would be able to find a creative and unique way of sounding like a racist, sexist bag of dicks, but no. I'm not "offended," I'm just bored. I can't tell you how many times I've read a missive from an angry white dude complaining about how no one will let him be "offensive" or complaining about the #MeToo movement, or wanting to know when White Men's History Month is, or going on about how actually, it's white men who are oppressed. It's so, so boring. It's tiresome.
Fetch the smelling salts.
Back in the year of our lord 2009, a young lady named Carrie Prejean wanted to be Miss USA. During the pageant, the then-Miss California USA was asked by Perez Hilton whether or not same-sex marriage should be legal in all 50 states. She answered:
Well, I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And, you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that, I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense to anybody out there. But that's how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman.
As you may recall, of course, most Americans in 2009 were not, in fact, living "in a land where [they could] choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage." They didn't have that choice, on account of it being illegal in most states.
Prejean did not win Miss USA and, according to her and the conservative pundits at the time, this was because her "traditional beliefs" were held against her. Instead, she was the first-runner-up, a title she lost after partially nude photographs of her surfaced, along with the revelation of the existence of a sex tape. Ms. Prejean has maintained that she actually also lost that title on account of backlash against her traditional values.
One of the conservative pundits defending Prejean was Courtney Friel, a personal friend of the beauty queen as well as an occasional fill-in-host on Fox & Friends.
GOP Lawmakers' New Year's Resolution: Ban Abortion Today, Ban Abortion Tomorrow, Ban Abortion Forever
Couldn't they just sign up for a yoga class?
It's the New Year, which means for at least a week people will be talking about all the things they want to do in the New Year. Maybe they want to Marie Kondo their apartments, maybe they want to take up skydiving, maybe they want to be healthier or drink less or smoke less or do some other kind of personal self-improvement type thing.
Eighty percent of Republicans in Congress and the Senate, however, along with two asshole Democrats -- Dan Lipinski (IL) and Collin Peterson (MN) -- have resolved to take away everyone else's reproductive rights.
More than 200 of them, including 39 Senators, have signed an amicus curie (friend of the court) brief asking the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to ban abortion. Or, rather, ban safe abortions for poor people, as abortions will always happen one way or another and the rich will always be able to fly out to where abortions are legal and have one safely there. They also wish to overturn Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the case that upheld the constitutional right to abortion and found that a state cannot create an "undue burden" on a "large fraction" of those seeking an abortion.
The Internet's Most Repulsive Men Are Throwing A 'Make Women Great Again' Convention And Oh My God It's So SAD
This is literally the most pathetic thing that has ever happened.
Coming this May, to a convention center of some kind in Orlando, Florida, the most repulsive and least self-aware men on the entire internet will come together to finally teach women a lesson.
A lesson in how to be the women of their dreams.
Yes! For the low, low price of $1,999 a ticket ($999 a ticket and a plus one if you act now!), you can learn all of the secrets to reeling in the kind of man who sits on YouTube all day whining about how women aren't all barefoot and pregnant anymore. Men like Stefan Molyneux, Mike Cernovich, and organizer Anthony Dream Johnson (who claims he is the 1st President of the Manosphere), along with a bunch of other creepy dudes you've never even heard of and definitely have no interest in speaking to for more than five minutes, never mind marrying.
The conference is called The 22 Convention (We do not know why!) and features the tagline "Make Women Great Again." According to the website, it is "destined to be the mansplaining event of the century."
Great news for forced birthers with no idea how insurance works!
Starting in June, thanks to a new and incredibly stupid rule from the Trump administration, those who get their health care plans through the ACA will be getting two bills each month. One bill for their regular insurance, and another, separate bill just for "abortion coverage." This "abortion coverage" bill will amount to no less than $1 per enrollee and is mostly symbolic as insurance companies do not set aside a specific amount of money to be used on certain procedures.
Here is the rule itself, explained in an inordinately confusing way, from the Health and Human Services website:
CMS is finalizing that, beginning with an issuer's first billing cycle that starts on or after the date that is 6 months after publication of the final rule, QHP [Qualified Health Plan] issuers be required to: (1) send an entirely separate monthly bill to the policy holder for only the portion of premium attributable to coverage of certain abortion services, and (2) instruct the policy holder to pay the portion of their premium attributable to coverage of certain abortion services in a separate transaction from any payment the policy holder makes for the portion of their premium not attributable to such abortion coverage. QHP issuers sending paper bills will be permitted to send the separate paper bill in the same mailing as the separate bill for the rest of the enrollee's premium. QHP issuers sending bills electronically will be required to send the separate bill in a separate email or electronic communication. We are also finalizing that QHP issuers must instruct the policy holder to pay the separate bill in a separate transaction. However, if the policy holder fails to pay the separate bill in a separate transaction as instructed by the issuer, the issuer may not terminate the policy holder's coverage on this basis, provided the amount due is otherwise paid.
This whole thing -- they claim -- is meant to make the ACA compliant with the Hyde Amendment, a garbage law preventing federal funds from going towards abortion. Since some people get subsidies, no one can truly know whether the money covering their abortions comes from the money that they have personally paid towards their coverage or from the subsidies. This way, people who don't understand how insurance works can pretend that all of the money covering abortion comes directly from that $1 bill policy holders will get to pay -- separately -- every month.
In reality, it is meant to piss people off that they're having to pay for abortions if they don't need or believe in them -- and they have to do so inconveniently.
While we spend a lot of time here on talking about horrifying anti-feminist men, which is easy on account of how there are so many of them, there are also a whole bunch of horrifying anti-feminist women out there who, frankly, are actually weirder than the anti-feminist men. Logically, it makes sense to me why men would go around thinking "Boy, it sure was great when women waited on us hand and foot and couldn't vote or anything!" — but it's hard to see what a woman would get out of it. You know, aside from getting to do the whole crappy "Pick me! I'm not like other girls!" schtick, which I have never had to do on account of how I am actually awesome.
So I thought we'd visit the Red Pill Women over on Reddit and see what they were up to during the holidays. And yes, it was fucking weird.
