Why Can’t Jay Smooth Support Both Men’s Rights and Anita Sarkeesian?

DA Blocks Secret Meetings of DV Council: What exactly is there to gain by denying men out of the discussion on DV? And make no mistake this isn't men not trying to speak up, not these are men that have tried to speak up and are being blocked. And even if men were included why are the meetings being blocked from access in the first place?

TSA: Retired Crotch-Grabber Protests Her Crotch-Grabbing: Who gropes the gropers?

Katikati man fights for fathers’ rights: It's not right that parents are able to use children this way. Good to see that someone is fighting it.

Wife hired hitmen to kill husband: I wonder if hiring hitters to take out one's spouse figures into domestic violence stats...

The Irony of Low Self-Esteem: Clarissa is curious about how low self esteem works.

Psychic guilty: Karl Lang 'preyed' on sex victims: I'm not trying to say that no crime was committed but I'm not sure if it could be said that he had sex with them without consent.

N.C. Senate rejects plan to compensate state sterilization victims: I can't wait to see what better uses that money goes to.

Southern Baptists: Gay Rights Are Not Civil Rights: From wiki: "Civil and political rights are a class of rights that protect individuals' freedom from unwarranted infringement by governments and private organizations, and ensure one's ability to participate in the civil and political life of the state without discrimination or repression." So how exactly does that no include gay people?

Nina Paley Explains Intellectual Disobedience

Tiny Darth Vader leaves hospital after heart surgery: The Force is strong in this one.

The advantage of not throwing your blog in the trash: "And one more thing. I don’t stand by everything I’ve ever said. I don’t agree with everything that comes out of my mouth, and I’m glad I don’t. Life is so much more interesting when you can change your mind from time to time."

Ontario Court: Father’s Right to Contact with Daughter not Worthy of Protection: There is no question that stories like this contribute to an atmosphere where fathers are not present in their children's lives. But we don't hear about that. No it's "fathers aren't doing their part.", never "why are mothers keeping fathers from doing their part?". It's hypocritical to support a mother's actions to keep a child from their father without good reason but then want to point a finger of blame at the father for not being there.

Sandusky found guilty of 45 counts

A pretty funny parody of this video.
