Republicans take a bold stance in favor of bullying

The relatively good election results on Tuesday are mainly due to the hard work of organizing and educating of liberals supporting everything from labor to reproductive rights. But it's also true that Republicans are kicking ass in the art of burning out all your political capital by being complete and…

Reproductive rights and the power of the secret ballot

Going into the polls yesterday, there was strong reason to worry that Misssippi voters would vote to amend their constitution to declare fertilized eggs to be "persons". After all, a slight majority of voters favored the ballot initiative going in. And the people who strongly favorited it, basically white Republicans, are…

There was a panel, and now there’s a post

Ha! Finally found an outlet so that I can blog a little. I’m at the Feminism 2.0 conference, which is about bringing feminism up-to-date with the netroots world. I’ll admit that I was a little bemused—Jessica Valenti could barely get a panel on the power of blogging at the NOW…

Gay marriage: the ultimate scapegoat

I’m sort of stunned, but here it is (via Figleaf)—a conservative who makes a valid point in an otherwise silly rant based on traditional ideas about forcing people to suffer for “morality”. He’s trying to parse out why voters are pro-choice but still anti-same sex marriage even though reproductive rights…

A new reproductive rights video? Hell yeah!

RH Reality Check: Framing Reproductive Rights from RH Reality Check on Vimeo. This is a fun one, where I debunk some of the favorite terms used by right wing nuts to discredit supporters of reproductive rights, doctors who provide abortion, and general human beings with common sense. I have particular…

All those pills are different pills

Here’s the last of the four videos we’ve released in the RH Reality Check series about reproductive rights. This one is about the difference between emergency contraception, the birth control pill and the abortion pill, and why right wingers are trying to confuse you about it. RH Reality Check: Emergency…

Videos, newspapers, and pills in school!

Marc and I have started a new video series for RH Reality Check, and I’m hoping all you bloggers out there who write about these issues can bookmark it and use it as a tool. The idea is to take on some controversial areas in reproductive rights and health—especially places…

Privacy vs. autonomy

So I worked up a post in my head about the way the Bristol Palin story exposes the tension between the real feminist argument for reproductive rights, and the compromise argument, and I had my misgivings because I feared the story is getting overplayed. And Lord Saletan’s nonsense grossed me…

This is why so many liberal men shy away from writing about reproductive rights

They’re afraid of coming across like neck-breathing perverts, like Lord Saletan does here. The thing is, there’s actually a point to be made about how our culture is very pious about sex and pregnancy, and the only way to maintain that piety is for the young women of the country…

McCain’s pick: pretty clever

The pick of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate tells me that reproductive rights are a massive issue for him. I’ve been saying from the get-go that McCain has been screwed insofar as he has to appear strongly anti-woman for the base, but pro-woman for the low information swing voters.…
