Today In People Are Terrible, a reverend named Jesse Lee Peterson has claimed women “can’t handle stress,” “go nuts,” and “freak out” and therefore shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

In a speech for his organization, BOND, a conservative African-American group which claims to promote “Men, Families and Faith,” Rev. Peterson longed for “the good old days” when “men were tougher” and “in charge.”  (Are we shocked to learn this gentleman is also a frequent guest of Sean Hannity’s on Fox News?)  Why, he even calls his own grandma “crazy” — and is nostalgic for the days when men like his grandfather would “deal with it.”

You can watch Rev. Peterson’s speech, or I’ve transcribed most of his  misogyny-spewing speech after the jump (with the most WTF-iest WTF parts in bold!): Continue reading

NC gay marriage ban photo

Last night North Carolina became the 3oth state in the country to approve a constitutional amendment defining “marriage” as a union between a man and a woman. NC law has already had a law banning gay marriage for the past 16 years, but Amendment One will include the specific definition of marriage to the state constitution. According to reports from 95 percent of counties, 61 percent of the votes supported Amendment One. Meanwhile, only six states — Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Iowa — plus the District of Columbia allow gay marriage. In response to the NC ban, President Obama’s campaign released a statement saying the president was “disappointed” in the outcome and found the amendment to be “divisive and discriminatory.”

Fancy Babies Have Their Own Hot Tubs Now

Babies are so lazy. They lie back in their strollers and get pushed around everywhere. They’re given everything they want just by screaming and crying. They’ve even got people wiping their butts. Babies just got even more obnoxious: that is, the babies with their very own hot tub. A bath and shower company has launched the $2,185 BluBleu hot tub for very fancy babies. Ten air jets will pump bubbles on their tiny tuchuses and underwater LEDs will emit blue, indigo and violet lights for “chromotherapy,” aka color therapy. We’re certain these babies will land themselves in actual therapy when they outgrow this miniature hot tub in 12 months.  [The Week]
