I’m going to try making these on a monthly basis. So here’s the September highlights from my RSS feeds and Twitter.

I don’t have much to say about the discovery of the Higgs that has not already been said, other than this: It is also quite fun to observer ignorant and clueless people post comments like these: Thanks to @leftytgirl for the last image.

The Disney movie Tangled that I reviewed a while back is apparently not well liked by the Christian fundies. (What do they like?) A few days ago the blog Love, Joy, Feminism posted a list of four blogposts; two from that crowd, and two replies. Since it was just a short list of links, I’ll repost […]

All communities have their problems and their conflicts. Sometimes belonging to several communities that don’t always overlap can be a bit of a problem. Natalie Reed experienced this recently when she wanted to write a post titled “God Does Not Love Trans People” addressing the sentiment that god loves everyone and thus religious people who […]
