Presented without comment.

I have zero difficulty believing that Bristol Palin is raising her kid to be a homophobic asshole, but her “correction” interests me more. It’s some kind of progress that a child saying “fuck it” is seen as less image-negative than saying “faggot,” right? Right?

Congressional Republicans are still assholes, film at 11.

Police have no suspects in obvious hate-crime against a Nebraska woman.

Safer-sex progress slows has slowed or even reversed among American high school students. Thanks a lot, abstinence-only education!

    Regarding Chick-Fil-A recalling the Muppets toys, now they’ve taken to Facebook in the form of one “Abby Farle” to attempt to damage control and claim that they did this days before the Muppets backed out of a partnership.

    Only the FB profile was only created 8 hours ago and the photo of the person is from a stock photo agency. Clearly it’s a sham account set up by CFA to damage control.

    Keep digging, CFA!!

    From the Queerty article:
    “Hmm, maybe if those kids weren’t chowing down on Chick-Fil-A sandwiches so often, their fingers wouldn’t be so chubby and get caught in the puppets. Just sayin’.”

    The writer just couldn’t help fat shaming little children. ‘Out of Spite’ indeed. Fuck you, Dan Avery.

      Agreed!! (Admittedly, I didn’t read the article linked here because I’d already read about the whole thing elsewhere.)
