Of course now that birth control has turned so many women into sluts and prostitutes that's not quite as small as it used to be.

Ok, you don't like Rush.

But how about...Brogrammers?

Tech’s latest boom has generated a new, more testosterone-fueled breed of coder. Sure, the job still requires enormous brainpower, but today’s engineers are drawn from diverse backgrounds, and many eschew the laboratory intellectualism that prevailed when semiconductors ruled Silicon Valley.

...the term has become the subject of a Facebook group joined by over 21,000 people; the name of a series of hacker get-togethers in Austin, Tex.; the punch line for online ads; and the topic of a humorous discussion on question-and-answer site Quora titled “How does a programmer become a brogrammer?” (One pointer: Drink Red Bull, beer, and “brotein” shakes.)…

Found out the other day that ultrasounds are fantastically costly. like thousands of dollars...

Who's going to pay for it, the state?

I am hoping that this crazy race to the right is as disgusting to the majority of americans as it is to me. Please let this be the point at which the people of this country decide that the loud right-wing is just too insane to be tollerated, let alone empowered.

There are going to be a lot of lawsuits clogging up the courts, while we all sue our way out of all the stupid laws being enacted right now. Can we declare the tea party idiotic beyond belief yet? Personally, I think they had some nasty stuff in the tea they were drinking.

SROTU--because Slog doesn't go after all evidence anywhere of sexism? and often focuses on things that tend to affect large numbers of people, such as statewide legislation and policies of entire school districts?

And the Arizona legislature is at it again. This time their Senate has passed a bill that allows a anti-abortion doctor to lie about a fetus' health to the mother, ostensibly to prevent her from potentially considering an abortion.

@3 - see below:

Step 1: Forced ultrasounds
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit

Totally makes sense now, right?

Free Lunch 10
This has to be some rope-a-dope strategy on the part of the Republican party. Lull the Dems into complacency by completely alienating women and Independents. And then... uh... pow?

The Republicans have gotten to this point of power because far too many Liberal progressive people don't take their Radical Religious Extremism seriously.

@ 4, given how these things are turning out for the GOP to date, I think there's plenty of reason for optimism.

Step 1: Alienate everyone

At least they aren't trying to make it small enough to fit up your ass. That would be gay.

If regular ultrasounds (not trans-vaginal) show very little of a fetus before 12 weeks; why does Planned Parenthood of Seattle require them before having a first trimester abortion? They're not currently required by Washington state. And yes, they ARE expensive.

Not affect a lot of people? It's Danica Patrick (or Danicrash as the chauvinists call here), spokesperson for Godaddy. An idol to millions of young women who hope to enter the stock car racing circuit.

Yet, Danica Suckism pervades the Internet!

See this tread on FairFax Underground...

Danica is popular for two reasons: She's pretty and she's a woman in a man's sport. If her talent was in Carl Edwards's body, you wouldn't know who he is.

Plus, she's kinda cunty when she loses.

Her bitchy temper is part of the draw for her. It's like John McEnroe; people get amused by her losing her shit.

The law of averages is clearly at play here. She's a typical 6, but in the context of NASCAR drivers, she's easily an 8 or 9.

The American Flag tramp stamp just screams "classy," though.…

When will it end?

Stop the Danicrashism!!

Next up on the Republican agenda: A truth-in-labeling law that would require all clinics providing birth control services to rename themselves Institutes for Sluttery, Prostitution, and the Pornographic Video Performance Arts.

It's a nice line, but I think the culture war issues are a means to an end, not an end in themselves. Abortion and gay rights are wedge issues used to keep the base distracted and voting against their economic interests. The real agenda is economic: smaller government, meaning more power and wealth in the hands of the oligarchy.

Witness the willingness of Republicans to flip on gay marriage in places they see that wedge starting to work against them (and the corresponding rage of the betrayed haters, which comes from the realization that they've been used and duped).

I hope someone, somewhere, will skip the outrage (justified though it is) and get straight to the point: your religious opinion does not opt you out of paying for things you don't like. If my moral stand made the tiniest bit of difference legally, I could have save a metric ass-ton of cash not paying taxes to support the Iraq War.

The name Transvaginal Ultrasound sounds like the name of an experimental electropop indie band
