What’s a brotest, you ask? Oh, you don’t ask, because you immediately get the idea? Let this red-Kool-Aid-swilling Reagansexual elaborate anyway:

It isn’t just teenaged girls who are slut-shamed for their sexual behavior. A pair of donkeys at a zoo in Poznan, Poland were unfairly and unjustly separated after their “amorous” “lovemaking” upset local mothers. Keep reading »
A new Lifetime show, “Girlfriend Intervention,” invites a group of black women (or, as the show calls them, “sisters”) to make over a white woman (a “basic”) and help her find her inner “strong black woman.” Yes, this is an actual show!
