If you never thought you’d hear the words masturbating and fetuses used together in a political statement, think again, because Texas Congressman Michael Burgess has just uttered the seemingly unthinkable phrase. We didn’t think there was much left to be surprised about when it came to right-wing assertions concerning women’s rights, especially after Romney’s binders full of women and Akin’s legitimate rape, but this week has been especially stupefying. On Wednesday we introduced you to Republican Arizona Congressman Trent Franks, who is responsible for writing up a...
LET’S TALK ABOUT PUBES!!!!! It might just be a patch of furry business between your gams, but that is some hotly debated and highly contestable terrain, ladies.

"Doomdome" takes you on ethereal ride full of danceable beats,...
