Do You Hate Atheists, Too? Join an Atheist Student Group!

I go through a little process when I write blog posts. Usually, I start by finding some ridiculous bullshit that someone’s spouting, then I decide whether or not it’s even worth my time. If it is, then I have to find a way to 1) make fun of the idiot without sounding unprofessional, 2) denounce […]

Who Says Teabaggers Aren’t Racist? Here’s One!

Zack Ford, you are a Marxist piece of shit! You really can go “F” yourself! BTW, there is a growing concensus that “The only good Marxist, is a dead one!”  Got to say, I can’t find much of a problem with that saying! You need to keep playing with the unarmed minds of our young […]

Negrophilia: An Invitation To Racism

WorldNetDaily repeatedly sends out a lot of promotional crap for a lot of crap. “Crap” is perhaps a juvenile descriptor, and yet it rings appropriate. It’s just junk geared to reinforce the narrow narrow beliefs of WND readers. (You may recall my humorous analysis of the iLumina Bible Software from last week.) Today’s offer takes […]

After several mono-topical episodes, we dramatically over-compensate by limiting discussion on any topic to three minutes. We have a big pile of topics in a hat. Some were submitted by listeners, but we each contributed some of […]

So You Want To Be a Teabagger: Hiding Prejudice Behind Capitalism

Let’s imagine starting a new society, a whole new humanity. We’re playing SimEarth or Civilization here or something; just imagine it with me. We start it knowing everything we know now. We know there’s nothing to substantiate prejudice based on sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Those identities all present naturally and in […]

Those Questions You Really Shouldn’t Ask of LGBT People

Humans are curious creatures and privilege is a tricky thing. As we study and learn the experience of different people, we realize that the experience of oppression can manifest itself in the tiniest of ways, without our even realizing. A well known example of such microaggressions is the experience of black people in regards to […]

Brilliance in Advertising – The “So Obnoxious” Kotex Tampon Commercial (Plus “Vogue”)

Like pretty much everybody who dares think of themselves as a friend of mine, I tuned in last night for the return of Glee! And, as expected, it was FABULOUS. If you haven’t watch it yet, who are you? Seriously. But one of the highlights of the 9:28-10:28 hour came not from Glee itself, but […]

Like Son, Like Father: Defend My Dad’s Letter to the Editor!

Hey everybody! I need your help. I’m really proud of my father, because he decided he could not tolerate the racist tea-bagger drivel that has polluted Harrisburg’s The Patriot-News opinion pages for the past couple weeks. He decided to submit his own letter to set things straight. I advised him a little on the letter, […]
