Sarah Palin Is So Proud That Bristol Palin Allegedly Punched Some Guy “Repeatedly” At A Party

Sarah Palin Is So Proud That Bristol Palin Allegedly Punched Some Guy "Repeatedly" At A Party

In Sarah Palin World — by which I mean not the state of Alaska but a state of mind — everything can be explained with a jab at the liberal media and a few references to Jesus. And after two weeks of silence regarding her family’s participation in a bloody brawl at a snowmobile party in Anchorage, Sarah Palin did not disappoint.

On Friday, the former governor of Alaska posted a message on her Facebook page praising her daughter Bristol as a “straight shooter” who defended the family during the brawl  — which is not mentioned directly, but obviously being alluded to with this post. Keep reading »

Life After Dating: We Are Family

LAD family

When you marry someone and sponsor him for immigration, you declare loud and clear for the government, your employers, and your loved ones all to hear that you have created a new family. You gain legal rights and spousal privileges. Your credit ratings affect each other. Your taxes change. You send thank you cards that you both sign. Both socially and on paper, you are a new family unit. Look at us — Kale and Jessie!

But that’s on paper. Words on paper don’t represent emotions. Couples who dated and even lived together for a long time probably already feel like they’re a family — and I would agree they are one. I don’t believe a family is “a family” only when it’s recognized by the government; I have friends with strained biological family relations who consider their real families made up of close friends a “family of choice.” The concept of family is really a mindset. So, when in a relationship or a new marriage like ours do you actually start to feel like a family?

This Woman’s Spoken Word Poem About Her Abortion Is Incredible

poem about abortion
"I Am Not Ashamed"

This is Leyla Josephine, a spoken word and performance artist based in Glasgow, Scotland, and the video above is her incredible spoken word poem about her abortion. Or rather, the guilt she does not feel for having an abortion when she was too young to be the kind of mother she wants to be. When the narrative is dominated by conservative Christians who claim all women regret their abortions, we need more women like Leyla (and Amanda, and Julia) speaking up to say that terminating an unwanted pregnancy was the best choice for everyone.

Roger Goodell On NFL’s Handling Of Ray Rice: “I Made A Mistake”

todays lady news
  • In a press conference today NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he is not considering a resignation of the league’s handling of Ray Rice’s assault on his then-fiancée, which has been pretty much a hot mess from the get-go. Rice was originally suspended by the NFL for only two games; his team, the Baltimore Raven, terminated his contract after a video was released by TMZ showing him punching his wife in the face in the elevator. In his press conference, Goodell repeatedly said he was “not satisfied” with their response and admitted, “I made a mistake.” He didn’t specifically address what that singular “mistake” was, but said he is committed to “the opportunity we have to make a difference and do the right thing.” Domestic violence and sexual violence prevention programs for all 32 teams in the league will take place within the next 30 days.

date rape 091914

Frat boys from Tau Kappa Epsilon at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee have been accused of slipping date rape drugs to young women at an off-campus party on Friday night after several female and one male student became so utterly incapacitated that police had to be called.

A UWM residence hall called the police three different times early Saturday morning after students came back to the dorm “unable to stand or walk.” All of the incapacitated students had X’s written on the back of their hands, which they said they got from the TKE party. And here’s where the part of the story gets weird. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Keep reading »
