Men hold the copyright to babies because their sperm creates life and women’s eggs are just sort of the baby house, confused anti-abortion MRA explains

Eggs: Just containers for sperm babies, basically

By David Futrelle

Sexual reproduction can be confusing. Luckily, there are always some very smart men around to explain it to any ladies who might need a refresher course. Like this dude, whose contribution to the abortion debate got the attention of @TakedownMRAs on Twitter.

#ResistTrump locally, with Flippable, Town Hall Project, Planned Parenthood

Don’t you know I’m LOCAL?

Most of the political activism that makes up The Resistance takes place on the local level. While perhaps a million people made it to the Women’s March in Washington, most of those who marched that day did so in their own cities.

#ResistTrump by looking at all the tasty resistance out there, mmmm good!

Still life with yelling Trump

If you’re feeling a bit discouraged by the confirmations of DeVos and Sessions, don’t be, because the massive wave of resistance to Trump that you and I are part of has accomplished several things that will ultimately be crucial to bringing Trump down.

It’s a fitting end, I suppose, to this most terrible of years. Popular vote-loser Donald Trump woke up bright and early this morning, and decided to send off 2016 with a petulant, gloating tweet:

NYT: Planned Parenthood shooter “a gentle loner who occasionally unleashed violent acts”

Not such a gentle man
Not such a gentle man

Here’s a question that would seem to have a simple, obvious answer: When is it ok to describe an alleged multiple murderer with a history of violence as a “gentle” man?

The correct answer is of course “never,” but the New York Times managed to get this question wrong in a profile of alleged Planned Parenthood killer Robert Lewis Dear over the weekend.

Ted Cruz takes up the bizarre claim that the Planned Parenthood shooter is “a transgendered leftist activist.”

Nothing to see here, move along
Nothing to see here, move along

The right-wing distraction machine has shifted into high gear. Now Republican presidential wannabe Ted Cruz is seizing on the bizarre notion, advanced by fringy right-wing ideologues, that the alleged Planned Parenthood shooter, Robert Lewis Dear, is a trans woman.

And he’s doing so as a way to distract from the increasing evidence that Dear’s terrorist assault on a Planned Parenthood clinic might just possibly have something to do with abortion.

So far we only know bits and pieces about the strange and isolated life of Robert Lewis Dear, the alleged shooter who murdered three people and injured many others after holing up in a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic yesterday afternoon.

We know that he had numerous run-ins with the law and with his neighbors, that he was accused in the past of domestic violence, that he lived in a small shack in the woods.
