Amazing news! All the more reason to help like-minded friends who haven't already done so register, get proper ID if they need it, and VOTE!

Judges for federal district courts and appeals courts are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate as well.

Nice ... and a 5-3, not just a 4-4 upholding of a lower court's ruling.  For all of the crap that Kennedy votes for, which you would think would be a blatant violation of the first amendment, at least he's firmly behind reproductive rights.

Of course, since there's never a religious argument made in favor of an anti-choice law — at least not officially — since most (but not all) of the zealots behind the legislation aren't stupid enough to stick something like that onto it, there's no reason for Kennedy to flip.

Hopefully we can get a more consistent replacement for Kennedy, when he goes.  Sadly, Roberts and Alito are probably going to be around for a long time.  Thomas is a bit older, but I think he's in pretty good shape.

In the "you can't make this stuff up" category, PayPal holds a panel to discuss workplace gender equality, and all male panel.

Like over here? I never wore a bra until the weight made me buy one, somewhere between 30 and 40.

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 4, 2015 at 8:25pm

Heh! Also the guy nervously asking his mother on the phone, "So how do you wash a bra?"

I wouldn't mind a society where wearing a bra or not, according to a woman's own choice and comfort, is as much of a nonissue as wearing a watch or not.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 4, 2015 at 8:18pm

LOL, Grinning Cat. Hilarious.

Try this on for size. Guys discover what it's like to wear a bra for a week.

After running in a sports bra, "It's like wearing wet boxer briefs made of scuba material."

Speaking of "forced-birth" politicians deliberately eroding abortion access, sex education, and contraception access:

(Gynecologist to patient with her legs spread in stirrups) I see the problem. You have Republicans in your vagina.(my tweak of an image I've seen on the web)

Comment by Joseph P on May 11, 2015 at 10:29pm

... forced-birth movement ...

I'll have to remember that one.  I haven't used the term pro-life, when describing them, for at least 5 or 6 years, since they're not, as you said.  I pretty much always refer to them as anti-choicers.  It'll be nice to have a swap-out term, though.

This is one of the things you get from religiously inspired movements.  They deliberately misuse words to apply emotional triggers to things, rather than using words for clear, precise descriptions of the way things actually are.

You get a little bit of this from all sides, when it comes to politics, but I find it far, far more common on the conservative side of things.

I'm actually anti-abortion.  I think we should do everything we can to reduce it, short of violating a person's bodily autonomy.  Specifically, we need decent sex education and free access to contraception, which the anti-choicers are also against, strangely.

As for the high heel thing ... yeah, meh.  Notice the feet of a woman who wears high heels all the time.  Most people's toes aren't generally in a wedge shape like that, and the arches become all kinds of fucked up, such that their toes point up in the air, when they're walking barefoot, in some extreme examples of regular abuse.

I think high-heeled boots do a little less damage, since you have more side support, and lower heels aren't as bad, but after you crank people up more than an inch or so, it gets bad pretty quickly.
