Texas Sex and Gender News Kick-Off

It’s Monday, which is sucky. But that means it’s nearly Tuesday, which is both Feminist Coming Out Day and Lobby Day at Planned Parenthood. Here’s what else:

Also, I would just like you to read this quote from Republican senator John Cornyn commenting on Obama’s decision not to fight DOMA:

“Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn said that when unemployment is high and 40 cents of every dollar the government spends is borrowed, he’d like to see Obama “spend less time placating his liberal base and more time on cutting spending and growing the economy.””

HAS THIS MAN MET JOHN BOEHNER, HE OF THE PLACATING HIS CONSERVATIVE BASE BY NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT FOCUSING ON CUTTING SPENDING AND GROWING THE ECONOMY? I just had to get that off my chest. Something about a plank and a speck or something in someone’s eye or whatever. I don’t know. Here are some cat GIF’s.

    So glad I found your blog! (And, just in time for March 8th.)

    From your linked article regarding the sonogram bill:

    “[Gov.] Perry told protestors: “We can’t afford to give up the good fight until the day Roe v. Wade is nothing but a shameful footnote in our nation’s history books.”

    Yeah, but with our newly-elected, history-revisionist Texas Board of Education, Roe v. Wade won’t be in the Texas schools’ history books.

    (okay, that wasn’t my funny, it was my partner’s, but I’m taking the liberty of sharing it)

    Your links are awesome and I’m so grateful for them, but could you also give us the credit for that cat/laptop gif? It’s the most epically awesome gif I’ve ever seen.🙂

    Andrea, didn’t you spend the last two weeks complaining about the GOP spending cuts?
