Kevin D. Williamson, Asshole of the Day for September 30, 2014
by TheDailyEdge (Follow @TheDailyEdge)
Imagine being so “pro-life” that you think a woman should face the death penalty for aborting a fetus. 
Imagine being so, so “pro-life” that “logically” you think the doctors and nurses who abort a fetus—even to save the of a mother—should face the death penalty, too.
Imagine having thought it through so much that, like National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson, you even have your preferred method of “pro-life” execution—hanging—already decided.
Worth noting: Williamson writes for a publication that likes to bill itself as: “America’s most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion.” Keep that in mind when you read the moronic Kevin D.Williamson-penned bullshit the National Review is now publishing.Williamson’s latest article was his attempt to respond to a Lena Dunham blog post encouraging women to vote. His piece, “Five Reasons Why You’re Too Dumb to Vote… (Reason 1: You get your politics for Lena Dunham)” prompted a quick backlash. Things started rolling downhill faster when Williamson began explaining his penis-based expertise to, among others, Charles Johnson of the blog Little Green Footballs on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Green_Footballs/timelines/516292560310923264NOTE: Tea Party Cat and I hadn’t started Asshole of the Day back in 2012 when Williamson told women to vote for Mitt Romney because his male-producing sperm was superior to Barack Obama’s, which only produces girls.And Williamson lost out to Rush Limbaugh on August 13, despite calling a 9-year-old black boy a “primate” in another National Review piece.
That means this is his first, well-deserved appearance as Asshole of the Day.Full story: Talking Points Memo

NOTE: Tea Party Cat and I hadn’t started Asshole of the Day back in 2012 when Williamson told women to vote for Mitt Romney because his male-producing sperm was superior to Barack Obama’s, which only produces girls.

And Williamson lost out to Rush Limbaugh on August 13, despite calling a 9-year-old black boy a “primate” in another National Review piece.

Earlier this year I went through a really rough time financially, and the people of tumblr came to my aid and helped me out.
I’m asking for help again, not for me, but for the shelter I work at.
The Rabbit Runaway is the only non-kill bunny shelter in our state. We take in not only unwanted bunnies, but unwanted sick bunnies. Most of them need desexing (roughly $300),some need extensive surgery before we can rehome them. We don’t get any government funding and rely on the support of kind animal lovers to keep us going.
I would love to be able to not only gain attention for this very worthy cause, but raise money too. Expensive surgeries aside, it takes a lot of money to feed and house the number of bunnies that we do.
Please donate here if you can 
To read more about the Rabbit Runaway check out our website and like the FB page
Please, if you want to get a pet rabbit or know anyone who does, please do your research before you buy one. They cost a lot of money to desex and get vaccinated. They need to live indoors, in your house our a secure shed to keep them safe from predotors. And they require a lot of time to care for – rabbit proofing your house, bonding (it can take up to a year to bond with your bunny), cleaning – and they have specific dietary requirements. They are not a pet for children, they deserve loving homes with families who integrate them into the household. Bunnies make great pets, they have huge personalities and are little bundles of love when looked after properly.
Most bunnies do not live to see the end of their first year because they are bought by people who do not think, and dumped when the novelty wears off. We deal with dumped bunnies all the time, most of which aren’t desexed. Pocket pets aren’t simple little toys you can throw away, they are living, breathing, feeling beings that deserve more than being dumped.

The porn industry focuses on their bottom line because they know that they can take advantage of women like me. They know that there’s a high turnover rate, and that they’re breaking the law when they deny women like me the cheapest workplace barrier protection in existence—a condom.

They do all this because they don’t have to pay for the health care of people like me, which is half a million dollars of HIV medication alone over my lifetime. Instead, these health care costs end up getting paid for by taxpayers—while porn producers laugh their way to the bank.

well this is some bullshit.

Orwell would be fucking ashamed that two decades after the year he set Nineteen Eighty-Four in we’re actively policing thought crime without the threat of Government coercion to make us do so.

Fucking pathetic.

I bet they would burn down libraries bc of the author’s political views

What the fuck? reverse racism is a pretty good blog too, bummer the mods are woman erasing bigots. Unfollowing immeditaely

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.

In an attempt to learn more about sexism in science, U.S Huffington Post Science asked women to share their experiences on the secret-sharing app Whisper. They were flooded with responses. Here are some of them:

Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

"They’re in a better position to judge than I am."

I think this is how most open minded people who value communication, connection, and are willing to learn from others think.

…Did… Did Russel Brand just explain how to react to being called out on something? 

Huh.

I might have misjudged him as well? since this is pretty much what I want to hear from allies.

If it’s a person’s unalienable right to invent their gender or have more than one then it’s my right to reject the gender cage as nonsense.

Don’t you dare call me “cis”. I do not identify as a woman. I am a woman. I am more than a series of stereotypes and misconceptions that a person can dress up into as they choose.

See? No matter how much you water it down for dudes, no matter HOW MUCH you grovel at their feet and swear, swear, swear that feminism is REALLY all about THEM and their FEELINGS, it’s NEVER enough.
They and their handmaidens will continuously move the goal posts until feminism means “complete female submission to males.”
Hell, we’re practically there already.
