When you’re applying to jobs, you obviously want to distinguish yourself from the hoards vying for the same position as you. If you really, really want to separate yourself from the pack, you should go ahead and include a picture of your genitals. More
1) They are better than neon jelly bracelets.
2) They are better than almost everything else, too.
3) Especially Rick Perry. More
Don’t say “fuck Texas” and give up; support Texas’ women in the same way you would hope they would support you if your rights were the ones under attack. Don’t pretend this doesn’t exist; that’s what makes these types of bills go through almost unnoticed. It does exist, and it’s not going away unless we all collectively push against it. More
In the wake of the terrible news that SB5 passed in the Texas House of Representatives, there at least is hope that we will continue to see more people like Sarah Slamen stand up to the government and call them out. It is appalling to see Slamen be physically escorted out of the Texas Senate while giving a powerful speech about the government’s failings.
Watch her passionate speech now, and see more daily video picks from The Gloss. More
As we all (hopefully) know, Texas governor/emotionally unhinged comic book villain Rick Perry is trying to aggressively limit the reproductive rights of Texas women–criminalizing abortions after 20 weeks and effectively shuttering all but a handful of clinics in the state. Even better, Perry insists he’s doing it for us. In the name of life. Because Ricky Perry and Texas just plum love life.
Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’s victory for good over evil was predictably short-lived as professional bridge troll/Governor Rick Perry called a second special session of the Texas legislature, set to begin today at 2:00 pm. More
Unless you live in a cave or get your news from a major news network, you know about the historic events last night in Texas. In short, Texas Democrats rallied around Senator Wendy Davis, who launched an incredible ten-hour filibuster to stop the passage of SB5, a bill which would effectively shut down all but five of Texas’s abortion clinics.
So…where were the major news networks? More
This gave me goosebumps.
Watch this snippet from yesterday’s filibuster, as well as more video picks from The Gloss. More
Throughout the American right wing’s “war on women,” we have heard many horrifying statements revealing just how little certain legislators understand about science, “legitimate rape,” and a woman’s anatomy. Here’s another one for the books. More
Madonna was right: “We are living in a material world…” More
Greetings everyone! I write to you from sunny Austin, Texas, where I am currently convalescing after four days of intense party reporting. (You can read about my adventures here if you don’t mind joining The New MySpace to do so. The series is called “And Then It Got Weird,” because duh.) My week was pretty well occupied by seeing bands, consuming intoxicating substances, and breaking into hot tubs, but I still found the time to take a few style snaps of people I encountered on the street and at parties. While many people looked like they’d just stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalog, I tried to get some diversity in there, which is why you will also see a guy in a monster costume and a girl dressed like a slutty Rainbow Brite. I’m in there too, of course, because I am a narcissist. More
