Incels Are Getting Plastic Surgery

An Incel Ideal

An Incel Ideal

If you’re interested in the Incel movement, it’s worth reading this surprisingly thorough coverage of a surprising (to me) aspect of the Incel movement. The author also covers the virulent misogyny inherent in this movement and helps the reader gain insight into the origins of this hatred.

Christian Minister Exposes the Bad Faith of Right Wing Pseudo-Christians

A Christian minister named Dave Barnhart wrote the powerful statement below, exposing the bad faith of the US right wing pseudo-Christians.

“The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn…You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus but actually dislike people who breathe.

Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.

Five Year Old Detained at US Border and Tricked into Signing Away Her Rights

The Five-Year-Old Who Was Detained at the Border and Persuaded to Sign Away Her Rights

From the New Yorker story:

“One of the things Helen’s story really showed us is that the Trump Administration never stopped separating children from their families,” Morales Rocketto said. “In fact, they’ve doubled down, but it’s even more insidious now, because they are doing it in the cover of night.”

This is what Republicans have created, a nation that willfully destroys the lives of families with young children. The GOP stands profoundly against life.

Roxane Gay writes thoughtfully about what justice would look like for cases of sexual abuse in Louis C.K. and Men Who Think Justice Takes as Long as They Want It To.

We need to have a continuing public debate about what justice looks like for victims of sexual abuse. It does not look like whatever the offenders think it does.
