“Not Our Demographic”: American Apparel denies my existence
I am in my early 20’s. I will wear stupid pants. So will just about everyone else who is my age. Stupid pants are an important part of human development. By not catering to the enormous market of plus-sized/fat/whatever young people, American Apparel, the INDUSTRY LEADER in stupid pants (not to mention stupid shirts, stupid shorts and stupid nipple-baring leotard things) is missing out on a lot of money.


Here’s How Arizona May Target Children of Undocumented Immigrants
In an interview with Time magazine, Arizona state senator Russell Pearce confirmed his next legislative target: children. He and other Republicans plan to introduce legislation this fall to deny birth certificates to the children of undocumented immigrants. Pearce authored Arizona’s anti-immigrant law SB 1070, which requires police officers to demand proof of citizenship of anyone they stop at a traffic light. About his new proposal, Pearce has acknowledged that there’s a constitutional amendment which states a person born in the United States is a citizen, but he insisted that he and other Republicans will work around the constitutional issue. "We will write it right,” he told Time of the new bill.


Quit Making Your Husband Cheat on You
My friend Captain Crab alerted me to this lovely little segment from The 700 Club, a talk radio show hosted by Pat Robertson...So, ladies, worried your husband might cheat? Maybe you should take a hard look at yourself. Have you let yourself go? Do you nag? That’s not the right tactic. You need to fix yourself up and take him out on the town for some fun. Because, as Robertson says here, he’s just getting some validation that he’s attractive and interesting, and “he’s not gonna cheat on you”…unless you “drive him away.” It’s just harmless “playing” on his part, but you have the potential to actually turn it into something else.
