Unfortunately, we are not talking about Sigourney Weaver or the plot to Alien, despite wishing we were. We are referring to comments made by Representative Justin Humphrey of Lane who authored the controversial HB 1441. In Oklahoma this morning, lawmakers discussed the bill that would require women to provide written informed consent from the father when seeking an abortion. Perversely debated on the first V-day in this Trumpian dystopia, the bill would see women’s fundamental rights to autonomy over both their bodies and lives, decimated. It is...
As may people have pointed out, Trump has seemed to nominate his cabinet based on loose facsimiles. For example, for the EPA, he nominated Scott Pruitt, who is actively trying to dismantle the agency. For Secretary of Education, he chose Betsy Devos, perhaps because she is a mother and to Donald, that is close enough to a teacher. And now he is nominating Andrew Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants, which owns chain brands Hardee's and Carls Jr., for Labor Secretary. Puzder has many counts...
In case you missed it, Donald Trump’s controversial national security advisor, Michael Flynn, resigned late Monday amid reports he had misrepresented the nature of his December conversations with the Russian ambassador.

He and his son also stoked the flames of #Pizzagate, the insane conspiracy theory positing that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta ran an underground child sex ring in the back of D.C. pizza shop...
Upper management had requested last minute report changes, due the next day. I was crunching numbers on a calculator with my back to my cube’s entrance when I felt someone’s hands descend on my shoulders and start rubbing. “Go, Dena, go!” the senior manager urged me, laughing. I froze while his hands dipped lower. Greg (not his real name) had started at the company a few months ago, and from the beginning, his attentions had been marked. He always stopped at my cube to chat when walking...
Recently, I woke up to read about a woman who had been silenced at her place of work: on the Senate floor. Day and night, since November 8th, I’ve heard women’s unmitigated howling, fine and high and sounding everywhere — but men can’t hear it. Many men I love call themselves feminists. Many men whose politics I agree with do, too. Fine. But men, I want you to stop talking for a second. I want to see you put your money where your mouths are. Because...
