Something Needs To Be Done About All These Men In Texas Having Abortions, Because None Of Them Are Happy Now


See, we thought that maybe this was a fluke, and that there was nothing more that could possibly be said about the fierce derpery at work in this photo from the Texas Statehouse yesterday. But then we looked at the Twitter stream of the photographer, Seth Millstein, who's been tweeting the dickens out of the demonstrations for and against the terrible abortion-restrictions bill (which is now "SB 1," if you have a scorecard). That's when we saw that Millstein had posted two other photos of men who also regretted having had abortions.  Texas is apparently even weirder than we'd thought!

This next gentleman photobombed a guy in a suit asking the very important question, "What if Winston Churchill had been aborted?" (Oh yeah, well What if HITLER had? We are now passing laws based on taunts...)

Millstein tweeted that while he saw both men and women holding the "I regret my abortion" signs, they were being handed out by a man with an anti-abortion group, so who knows? Maybe the guy simply didn't read what was on the signs, or gave no thought to the optics? We'd love to think that a sneaky pro-choice infiltrator was grinning while giving the signs to men, but that's a bit too Alex Jones false-flaggy, really.

You guys should probably "follow" this Millstein guy if you're into the Tweetings; he's provided some pretty nice on-the-ground observations, like a brief conversation with a woman who acknowledged that her children "couldn't read the signs they were holding," or the "pro-life" lady he overheard tearfully explaining to a reporter, "We need to protect them [young women] from themselves," possibly because they will grow up to become men who regret having abortions.

The Church of Scientology had some thoughts about Our Robyn's piece, Who Wants To Watch A Creepy White Guy Rap About Scientology? We had some thoughts about their thoughts.

Thanks for writing in, Scientology! As you doubtless realized when you didn't demand we take down our story, but requested it instead, our opinions of your weird cult and that poor young man's rap skills are protected by the First Amendment. (I learned about libel law in college and grad school but also on the job: I was in newspapers so long that I was actually colleagues with Tony Ortega -- about whom you sound quite "venomous" and "biased" -- at the very same newspaper chain you can't believe he defended! Next up, please show your due diligence by talking trash about a woman you didn't know was my mom.)

Also, a lot of your former members say on the record that you kidnap people, and stalk them, and harass them, and sometimes beat them up good, and I request that if so, fucking stop it.

The rest of you click the headline, if you want your OPEN THREAD.

Monday's Trump-Putin press conference landed on the entire free world like a hot treason-shaped turd, didn't it? Congressional Republicans have been saying mean things about it on Twitter, and even Fox News has been less than 100% supportive! The White House communications department obviously knew it had a crisis on its hands, what with how it's generally considered inappropriate for the leader of the free world to get on all fours in front of the Russian president and wag his tail and slobber with anticipation while he awaits his next marching orders. WOMP WOMP, etc.

So the comms department typed up a thing for the president to read aloud today at the beginning of his meeting with members of Congress, about how he was VERY SORRY he said one word incorrectly during the Putin presser. That's right, only one word of that whole fucking shitshow was wrong. All the rest of his traitor words were exactly what he meant to say.
