Seriously, even Vogue has an annual “Shape” issue where they patronizingly allow someone as (*GASP*) huge as Beyonce or Kate Winslet on the cover in addition to their usual sub-zero model roundup… then offer drastic dieting tips… all while mysteriously claiming to promote body acceptance: And don’t miss the small print under the […]

This cartoon is of course based on a real quote from John McCain during the last debate:
‘Just again, the example of the eloquence of Sen. Obama. He’s health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, […]

mreids Icon Posted by Mikhaela Reid

September 27th, 2007

Partly inspired by the disgusting facts about the weirdly popular diet drug Alli, but partly by a personal experience. A few years ago I had a horrible case of pneumonia that left me bed-ridden and barely able to breathe for three miserable weeks. When I returned to the world of the living, sickly and weak, […]

June 29th, 2007

Forget Yankees vs. Red Sox: let’s fight over who’s more pro-gay!
Whenever New Yorkers ask me where I’m from, and I say “Massachusetts,” many say something like “Oh, so you’re a RED SOX fan” in the tone reserved for statements like “Oh, SO YOU’VE GOT A TERMINAL ILLNESS.” Thing is, I’m not an anything fan. The […]

June 29th, 2007

(Note: I wrote this yesterday, so the language says “today” throughout… apologies!)
Were I still an employee of the Wall Street Journal, I might not have shown up for work this morning, thanks to Rupert Murdoch’s insane quest to dominate the world with right-wing wingnut faux news crap.

Get out your balloons and confetti, and iron your best white robes, because the Bush Supreme Court has officially declared that racial integration and diversity DON’T MATTER AT ALL. The Bush court says that […]
