Aug 22 mitten commented on The Morning News: Feds Consider Moving Grizzly Bears into Washington; Seattle Judge Busted.
SeaWorld is a horrible place. I would love to see all of them shut down for animal cruelty. Their business model is highly amoral and cruel.

Quotes that contain facts are fact-checked. (Quotes that contain opinions do not need to be fact-checked, but often a publication will offer clarification or context to strong opinions). That's just Journalism 101. The Walrus is wrong not to clarify or correct the woman's quote.
Aug 21 mitten commented on Everything Is Transphobic (But "Gay Men Draw Vaginas" Isn't).
Is anyone else reminded of the Ellen Jamesians from World According to Garp? Fucking insanity.
Aug 19 mitten commented on What Is Your Favorite Fake Movie Band?.
There are so many classic "bands" in this thread! They should all get together and do a reunion tour.
Aug 19 mitten commented on What Is Your Favorite Fake Movie Band?.
The Sleaze Sisters! I can't believe no one else named them!!!

"Times Square" is one of those changed-my-life kind of films. Those girls fucking ruled.

I also loved "Streets of Fire" around the same time, but I can't believe how awful Ellen Aims and the Attackers are when I watch it today.

Also: the Fabulous Stains and the Soggy Bottom Boys
Aug 19 mitten commented on "Five cops go drinking and shoot at a middle class black couple—whatever.".
We've become a country that justifies killing teenagers because of alleged shoplifting and pot smoking. Only the 2nd Amendment matters. Cops killing children, teens and adults mean nothing, because our citizens are so used to state-sanctioned executions. How do we change this? End capital punishment, for a start. We can't debate the morality of trigger-happy cops while the state is torturing prisoners (some of whom we now know to be innocent) to death.

I must be the only person on the planet who is terrified of loud noises but still LOVES the Blue Angels. They're totally, totally awesome.
Jul 8 mitten commented on Patty Murray and Senate Democrats Draft Bill to Override Hobby Lobby's Anti-Birth-Control Bullshit.
This is awesome! All the sane women legislators need to join forces on this and tear the supreme court a new one.
Jul 8 mitten commented on Frustrated By KUOW?.
I was wondering what happened to KUOW over the last year or so! I used to listen all the time and it is always national or international news now, or internet-ey style news, which I hate. What a shame. I'm a subscriber, but I hardly listen to it at all anymore.
