As all the hubub over the HPV vaccination has demonstrated, the Christian right has a big time Lolita obsession.  I wasn't thinking about that per se when I pitched this piece about the right wing shit storm over the Girl Scouts of the USA, but I'd say that the article has perfect timing in that regard.  After all, the Girl Scouts hysteria comes from the same place as the hysteria over the vaccination: lurid right wing imaginations applied to young girls and sex.  It's all very icky, but I think an important factor in understanding the Christian right worldview.  So check out my article "The Girl Scouts Allegedly Radical Feminist Lesbain Agenda". Spoiler alert: Girl Scouts do not  have a radical lesbian feminist agenda, but they are pretty pro-girl, so I can see why you'd make that mistake. 

Also, it's time for a Panda Party! Can I get a woo woo?  Just pop in, check out the theme, and start playing tunes (or listen to others play tunes, which is what about 2/3 of people prefer to do).  Pandas.  They party.  At the Panda Party
