Americans, and their guns, and their Stand Your Ground bullshit, and their belligerent resort to violence no matter what the issue is.
Carroll told Metro Sotiropoulos’s tweets were “quite shocking,” but said she believes they were sparked by the mayor’s recent comments opposing the rainbow flag at City Hall.
“It’s unleashed something that’s enabled people and it’s unfortunate that one of those people is a school trustee, given their role in building a fair and inclusive society,” she said.
Yep. Dipshit brothers are enabling other bottom-feeders. Shocking, I know.
Civic virtue and nostalgia
Remember when all u had to say to scold someone for sexist/racist/homophobic behavior was “hello, this is the 90s!” Not gonna lie, I’m a little nostalgic for that. For believing in the inevitability of progress.
I’ll say it again: stupidity is not a civic virtue.
Voting Rights Act kneecapped by United States Supreme Court. A setback for homophobia, but a wink and a pat on the ass for racist crackers.

When Texas State Senator Wendy Davis filibustered SB5, an anti-choice bill that would have closed nearly every abortion clinic in Texas, for 11 hours for Tuesday, the internet stood beside her. Well, most of the internet that is. While #StandWithWendy was trending on Twitter…
Now why don’t you hysterical feminazis stop your whining and let The Menz control your ladybits?
Honestly, I don’t know where you get this whole War on Women thing.
So far this year more Americans have been killed on U.S. soil by toddlers than terrorists
It’s true. A far too long list of gun deaths caused by ➤kids with guns
Trenton Mathis and three other children were placed in the home, which was deemed unsafe by CPS, late last year after ‘abuse and neglect’ was reported in their parents’ home which resulted in their removal from their residence, then placed with their great-grandparents. Both great-grandparents were at the home when the shooting took place, according to police.
Another story idea for the folks at Jezebel?

Or … maybe it’s more of a Gawker kind of idea …
Last night, southern Manhattan reportedly received a 13.88-foot storm surge, a record high and more than enough to flood much of the city. We’ve all seen the pictures. What’s more, according to Ben Orlove, director of the Master’s Program in Climate and Society at Columbia University, about a foot of that surge would not have been there if not for the sea-level rise already caused by climate change over the course of the 20th century.
So, yes, we knew. We knew well ahead of time that this could happen, and we knew global warming was already making it worse. We knew, but we did virtually nothing. (Well, New York did empanel a sea-level-rise task force, which put out a report — and you can see how that turned out.)
