  • A New Poll Shows What Really Interests ‘Pro-Lifers’: Controlling Women, by Jill Filipovic at the Guardian: “A Supermajority/PerryUndem survey released this week divides respondents by their position on […]

    • The “You may like” sponsored ads that show up are irksome to a skeptic.

    • It’s good to have some quantifiable data on the forced-birthers. There are truly terrifying areas of the country these days with the hate being out in the open. I hope that the elections over the next year continue with the shifts we sat in ’18.

    • “Pro-liferers are sexists in denial.” There’s a lot of that going around. A lot of republicans are also racists in denial, and fossil-fuel promoters are climate-changers in denial and health care privatizers are death-mongers in denial and Boltonites are war mongers in denial… Funny how they are often the same people. I wonder how much of the “denial” is real and how much is just public face-saving? I think they know perfectly well they are sexists and racists and people who want to exploit desperately sick people (I’m looking at you, promoters of chronic Lyme disease and a million other forms of quackery as well as the people who want to deny health care as a right) and people who want to murder all those foreigners they don’t like (except when they can economically exploit them.

      The good news from diving into the polls (follow the link in the link) is most people, not just democratic and minority women, seem to be on the right side of most of these issues. Get out and vote and don’t let them stop you! Organize!

      Also, when looking through the poll results, see where you fit in and think about whether you could be doing better.

      Also, watch the vlog about why the Amazon is burning. Phil Plait linked to the same video earlier today and it’s really enlightening.

      I need me some animals acting silly now.
