  1. masculism header

    When Duke University Feminists sought to correct some popular misconceptions with the “who needs feminism” campaign, Men’s Rights Activists tried to co-opt the campaign with “I Need Masculism because…” which feminists easily turned back against them.

  2. "Yeah, yeah that Gaza thing but what's this about no more Ding Dongs?" - Americans
    @DannyZuker

    - Hey, Boss. Are we gonna do anything else on the Twinkie beat? The Internet is blowing up with people talking about Hostess going under.

    So I’ve noticed, Geoffrey. People are having so much fun talking about how much they’re going to miss Twinkies that they seem to be completely unaware that they’re rehashing the same jokes from when the company nearly crumbled last summer, or like it did back in 2009. In fact, their love of saying “OMG HOW AM I GONNA EAT TWINKIES OMG ZOMBIELAND ZOMG TWINKIES” is drowning out any legitimate concerns for the thousands of employees who’ve lost their jobs because the company’s top executives gave themselves such fat pay raises. The loss of the Twinkie isn’t the real tragedy here. Fuck. Little Debbie still makes Cloud Cakes which are the same damn thing. The tragedy is that Hostess is blaming their employees for their own greediness and throwing them under the bus.

    - That would make a great visual! The Hostess CEO throwing the line-workers under a big Twinkie-shaped bus.

    But the Twinkie can’t be the bus in this metaphor. The Twinkies have been thrown under the bus along with the employees.

    - So how about that whole Israel/Palestine conflict? Have any ideas on how to cover that?

    *sigh* So, you were thinking something like this?

    - Well, it’s not your best work, but if it means we don’t have to weigh in on Gaza, then I guess it’ll do.

  3. racism video

    When people say racist things online, is it okay for bloggers to publicly ridicule them for it? What about when they’re minors? And how can you ever be sure they even are who they say they are in the first place?

  4. Donald Trump, Victoria Jackson, and pretty much all the racists and homophobes are REALLY MAD about the election.

    We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!

    The Twitter accounts of Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Meat Loaf and other typically outspoken loudmouths have been very quiet.

  7. I realize that plenty of you are fully capable of browsing through Tweets on your own. But some of you aren’t. So this is for you. The latter group.

    There’s a hashtag currently trending called┬ #ThingsRomneyShouldSaytotheNAACP┬áthat’s filled with a mix of ernest support, genuine racism, ironic racism, sarcasm, and everything in between.

    #ThingsRomneyShouldSaytotheNAACP Job creation through pro-growth policies will greatly benefit the black communities unemployment numbers.

  8. For the most part, I hate finding out anything about the people who make the music I like. Music, like all art, is subjective – I’d much rather appreciate a song for the reasons I appreciate it and forego all the disappointing BS in the lives of the musicians themselves.

    But I like Blockhead. And I actually like his Tweets. So here are some of the things he’s Tweeted recently that made me go, “Hey, I’m gonna put that up on my blog.”

  9. EPICABRONY

    Every now and then a Twitter account comes along that’s so bad you can’t tell if it’s a joke or a legitimate freakshow. EpicABrony is just such an account.

    He’s an atheist, which on it’s own isn’t a bad thing. Unless you’re an obnoxious Reddit atheist, in which case it’s as bad as an Evangelical. He’s a Brony, which, again, isn’t a bad thing on it’s own. Unless you’re a certain kind of obnoxious Brony, which he is.

    But the icing on the cake is that he describes himself as a “Highly Active MRA.” For the uninitiated, MRA stands for Men’s Rights Advocates. Because it’s like, really hard being a man for some guys.

    The cherries on top of the icing on top of this cake is his fedora, because of course it is.

    EpicABrony is either a pitch perfect parody of a certain kind of annoying Redditor or he’s the genuine article. In a game of You Rage You Lose, he’s a super effective troll, which is what makes me think it’s all for the sake of parody. But he plays it so well it’s hard to call. Either way, EpicABrony is not the poster child Reddit asked for, but he’s the poster child Reddit deserves.
