This time last year, we had some fun at the expense of 10 conservatives cruising Craigslist for discreet gay sex at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual Republican Woodstock held in Washington DC. Either the discreet M4M subset wised up after the post went viral or they’ve moved to location-based apps like Grindr or Scruff, but there isn’t any Craigslist action going on at CPAC 2013…
Powerful conservative Jim DeMint is resigning from the Senate. He’s headed to the equally conservative Heritage Foundation. What happens next?
There’s about to be a political circus in South Carolina, the state that entered “hiking the Appalachian trail” into the lexicon, the state proudly represented by a Good Ol’ Boy wannabe who yelled “You lie!‘ at President Obama in a joint session of Congress because he was opposed to expanding health-care coverage for more Americans, the state in which the Senate President posed at a party in Rebel garb with a pair of African-American slaves, and the state where horse-bonking seems to be the sport of choice.
Parents, rest assured: Your daughters can be safely vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV) — the leading cause of cervical cancer — without being turned into irresponsible sexpots. Imagine that!
In 2011, a paper in the journal Sexually Transmitted Infection found that 16 percent of parents in areas of North Carolina felt that teenage girls who were vaccinated might be more likely to have sex, or that the vaccination could even give them a “license to have sex.”
The jury is still out on whether getting vaccinated against tetanus gives you a license to step on a rusty nail.
Look, people: In the vast majority of cases, your daughters are going to start having sex. Some sooner, some later. Some much later. Some much, much later. But eventually, they’ll get around to it. And what if the first person they have sex with is a carrier? That would be dumb and tragic and avoidable.
And guess what, dudes: Men are also carriers of HPV. In addition to anal cancers and genital warts, the virus can also give you penis cancer. Let me repeat that: penis cancer. Penis. Cancer. If you’re not a carrier already (get tested!) it’s not too late to get vaccinated, and let your lady-lovers know that their cervixes are safe with you.
Don’t forget to swing by the sex DMV and get registered for your sex license while you’re at it.
Ohio Governor John Kasich: Republican wives “are at home, doing the laundry.”
His brilliant remarks about his view of where women should be in the world may have gotten more attention had the man he was stumping for not jumped the gun and played politics with the U.S. Embassy protests in Egypt and the deadly attack in Libya.
As it stands, Kasich’s remarks in Owensville, Ohio, while playing 1950s Surrogate for Mitt Romney flew largely under the radar.
Plunderbund points out, “Kasich pays his male staffers 56% more than his female staffers and, more recently, only one of the nine members appointed by Kasich to the board of JobsOhio — the private corporation responsible for awarding incentives to Ohio businesses — is a women.”
Unknowingly hilarious ad by the conservative Campaign for American Values PAC.
Fresh out of school, living at home and struggling to find work in your white-collar field? Hahaa, suckaaas, you can’t! But don’t blame the job market — blame the illegal immigrants who are rafting straight to Wall Street and taking the junior consultant jobs you’re entitled to because you’re white. Get off my lawn, Elian! Am I right?
The conservatives really know how to speak to us 20-somethings. What has Obama done for us, huh? (You know, besides bringing jobs back to 3.3 million citizens. And health insurance if you’re under 27.) Shit is NOT cash, bro. Just listen to this rap. Arpaio/Eastwood/Chair 2016!
Two Republican National Convention–goers were removed from the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Tuesday night after they threw nuts at a black CNN camera operator and said, “This is how we feed animals.”
Two people failing to live up to the decency standards of a civilized society does not a racist party make, but RNC officials will surely be groaning as this story circulates around the web.
Thanks to the ACA’s birth control mandate, August 1 will live forever in infamy. Much like December 7 and September 11, according to Rep. Mike Kelly.
Termites, snails & elephants, oh my! Cancer, cigarettes and ice cream, oh my! Here’s a list of bizarre conservative comparisons for homosexuality.
