We are largely a self-moderated board, but we do not have the power to fix things. It's the weekend, so he has free reign until the ModSquad comes in on Monday. And even then there's no guarantee it'll be handled; I think we have a new intern that doesn't quite know how to TCB as a lot of stuff hasn't been cleaned up.

gosh, wish I'd read that before I decided to not ignore them. live and learn : ) thanks for the help!

Well, when you consider that most US health insurance will cover a man's scrip for Viagra, but not a woman's scrip for BC . . .

We also pay more for insurance in general than men do not only because we have dangerous, confusing lady parts, but because we are more likely to go to the doctor when we're sick!

here, here!

Hello, I'm new to this, so feed back is welcome!

Like many of you Iím pretty outraged about what has been happening with Planned Parenthood and womenís issues in general in our country right now. I feel embarassed and ashamed (but by no means surprised) that my government would rather sponsor NASCAR than STD testing for low-income men and women (see post in the Stranger slog article

For those who donít know, among other horrific measures, the GOP is trying to completely defund Planned Parenthood. As someone who has worked with low income youth and families for over ten years and volunteered and donated to PP, I canít tell you what an invaluable resource this organization is.

Given that I'm also a designer in Seattle I'm responding to this, and honoring womenís history month, by creating a necklace to try to raise money for PP.

$25 of every sale will be donated directly to Planned Parenthood You can read about it in more detail below or via this link:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/69339754/remem...ry-code-pendant

I'm also offering 15% off all purchases at my shop for anyone who donates $25 or more to PP.

If any of you could help spread the word by posting on your facebook page, tweeting or forwarding , I would greatly appreciate it. My goal is to raise $2500 for Planned Parenthood by the end of March - and to create some female solidarity around this issue that's a little more interesting than a plastic bracelet.

And for full disclosure, yes, I stand to make money from this - my cut works out to about $8.56 per hour - full details are in the listing.

Thanks for reading!

Clump of cells to testify in court on behalf of Ohio's Heartbeat Bill. Wow. Just. WOW. Pretty soon those of us with actual voices will have no say at all as far as what happens to our bodies.

Why, yes, women of Virginia, this new legislation may close down your means of receiving a safe, legal abortion.

i need to figure out how to imbed the link underneath text like everyone else seems to be able to do...


"Insert Link" is the first green icon, to the right of the yellow happy face. Highlight the text you want to be the link, click that "Insert Link" icon, put the URL (from the page you're linking to) into the box, click OK.

That's exactly the campaign I was talking about, DJ-Bizmonkey. Life Always has been plastering misleading propaganda all over black communities.

Not to mention that there's also a great deal of misinformation out there in regards to Margaret Sanger & PP's founding as far as eugenics & the like are concerned. There's been a very vocal religious contingent in the black community that has been spreading a ton of untruths about PP & it's goals.


yes, like this article i just stumbled upon: http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2011/0..._ad_nausea.html

It's amazing how the religious right have used hot button issues like abortion & gay marriage & whatnot to actively get Americans to vote against their own best interests. Political sleight of hand may well be the death of us all.

As far as PP goes, lot of people do not care that PP provides much needed help to ALL women & that they provide more than abortion services. All they hear is "abortion" & the mental doors slam. Not to mention that there's also a great deal of misinformation out there in regards to Margaret Sanger & PP's founding as far as eugenics & the like are concerned. There's been a very vocal religious contingent in the black community that has been spreading a ton of untruths about PP & it's goals.

Save space for me, AP. That SD bill is insane. I'm beginning to think that I'm losing my argument that THE HANDMAID'S TALE could never happen here. Sadly, my bookclub might be right.

Did everyone see that the House voted to defund Planned Parenthood? WTH?
