    America’s pastime: shooting people.

    Very cool info about the Appalachian Mountains JJ! I think the Smokies and Shenandoah Valley are two of the most beautiful parts of the country.

      It’s not a “convergence” with the zomg-pedophiles-right-wing. It’s them jumping on a demonstration they think has something to do with them.

      The actual convergence, the one that doesn’t get mentioned, is with feminism and women’s rights.

      Every other group gets to define itself. Cherokee, blacks, you name it. The group gets to say who’s in it. Except women, for some reason. Why is that?

      If a group of women was fine with sharing naked spaces with others, then there’s no problem. If some women, as in this case, say it’s not fine, that should be the end of the issue. (Plus, what kind of person insists on inflicting themselves on people who don’t want them?)

      To me this all reeks of women not being allowed to say no.

        Rapist dudes…that’s who. And putting on a dress doesn’t make them once bit less rape-y or male.

          Yeah. Definitely #NotAllTrans. But the ones who start out rapey sure don’t seem to get cured of it by identifying as women. They need to do more identifying with women.

    Republican Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene hoped the third time might be the charm for finding a California venue to host their “America First” rally on Saturday night. But instead of speaking to a packed arena, the pair were left with the sidewalk outside the Riverside City Hall.

    Greene used the “Peaceful Protest Against Communism” to hawk vaccine hesitancy. She urged the crowd, “Don’t let them force your kids to wear masks at school. Don’t let your kids be forced to take a vaccine that’s not FDA approved.” Meanwhile, coronavirus cases in California are surging as the more contagious Delta variant rips through the unvaccinated population.

    Look! Nobody wanted the Treason Twins!

    To “anyone who has every menstruated and is now in perimenopause.” Gee, there used to be a specific name for these people, but I guess that’s been banned now.
