Bristol Palin explains how you should feel about freedom of speech about having not-vagina sex

While we were absolutely not at all very interested in what Mark Steyn (noted reviewer of No, No, Nannette) had to say about modes of masculinity when comparing a rugged backwater hillbilly duck destroyer with a fey cocoa-latte-sipping metrosexual homosexual mansexual-childsexual, we found ourselves oddly, deeply, passionately drawn to the…

Most blog posts ever on a TV show the blogger has never watched

As someone who thinks pop culture actually matters, even I have to say that the winner on “Dancing With The Stars” has no larger importance, and like Atrios, I wouldn’t be “pissed” if Bristol Palin won. My main emotions would be that mix of amusement, contempt, and pity I feel…

The ongoing, albeit amusing, battle to save Bristol

Yesterday, at XX Factor, I blogged about what may be a new low for culture warriors: making it their mission to stick it to the liberals by keeping Bristol Palin on “Dancing With The Stars”. My point was that this proves how much it’s just culture war for them. Bristol…

The entitled wingnut and his silencing tactics

Hard as it may be to believe, but the wingnut sense of entitlement reached new levels this week. No, it’s not when Dr. Tiller’s assassin Scott Roeder called the AP from jail and complained about getting treated like he was in jail for murdering someone, which is just an extension…

Really? Get married at 20? Really?

Some days you get out of bed and one of the first things you read is a piece pressuring young women—and explicitly just women—to get married young, and you want to go right back to bed. Is this 2009? Is Mark Regnerus aware that women aren’t legally considered chattel any…

Two kinds of virginity

I’m pretty happy with my entry into the TPMCafe Book Club about The Purity Myth. It’s about how the Bristol Palin situation exposed the tension between the traditional conservatives (where chastity is more about appearances than actions) and evangelicals (the opposite). Of course, most conservatives fall somewhere in between these…

Bristol Palin, and feeding the base while starving the middle

Reading Rebecca Traister’s article about the soon-to-be infamous Bristol Palin interview, I couldn’t help but think the whole thing might be further evidence that Sarah Palin in the wave of the future for the Republicans, and thank the Disco Ball for it. The injection of the person of the pregnant…

Some headlines speak for themselves

Like this one, for example. Bristol Palin Faults Abstinence Teaching I may get a t-shirt. Whatever else may be true about the way this whole thing played out, Ms. Palin the Younger has potentially done young people in this country a great service with just this one statement. Spokespeople come…

From the hard right, “Don’t get pregnant” means “Get pregnant ASAP”

Jodi Jacobson has an article up about the Bristol Palin birth and how teenage birth is the natural result of right wing values. Most amusing part? Bristol Palin said she “obviously discourages” teen pregnancy and knows that plans she previously made for herself will now forever be changed. Teenagers need…

Q of the day – what’s off limits?

“Children are off limits.” I agree that the Obama campaign needs to steer away from any discussion of a minor child of a candidate. That’s not, however, the same as discussing the hypocrisy of a ticket that promotes abstinence-only education and favors SCOTUS justices that would revisit a woman’s right…
