Brave Indiana lawmaker faces down Girl Scouts

How did I miss this? Back in February, Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris took a stand against the slutification of our daughters by a radical left-wing sex cult with ties to unrepentant baby-killers: He alone opposed the House’s resolution honoring the Girl Scouts on their 100th birthday, because of their “radical policies” and “liberal progressive politics” and promotion of “homosexual lifestyles.”

Prison Time for Women Who Use the Morning After Pill

There is terrible legislation being considered in Honduras which would send women to jail if they use the morning after pill. There is no exception for victims of sexual assault. The global activist group Avaaz is sounding the alarm on this terrible legislation, which is being actively debated in the Honduran Congress and may be “just days away.”

Happy Birthday Feministing!

Feministing turned 8 last week, which is a big age for a blog. Happy birthday to them! Feministing was one of the first feminist blogs I read back when I ran a tiny feminist website in some random corner of the internet, and Jessica and Vanessa where two of the first feminist bloggers I ever met. Feministing has set the bar for feminist sites since its inception, and has done incredible things for feminism in media and politics. At some point I’ll write a longer post on this, but the strength of feminism in the blogosphere has had a remarkable on “real life” politicking, and Feministing deserves a lot of the credit for that. It’s a labor of love, and Samhita and the whole team do amazing work. So hop on over there, wish them a happy birthday, and perhaps consider donating to support their work.
