I track pdtbear. But not consistently. In fact, drop me a note in the box to tell me I need to look at something because I don't check the tags as much as I should. :/

That a secret fraternity is a breeding ground for rape culture is worrisome, but that it’s happening right in our nation’s capital makes that even harder to stomach. According to Erin Gloria Ryan’s research, one of the men in this email chain now works for a “prominent congressman.” Judging by how much rape culture permeates the political scene in the U.S., with influential politicians saying things like, “Rape is kinda like the weather.

Of course not all men (or fraternities) promote rape, but it’s troubling to see so many that do.

Watch: Jon Stewart flawlessly calls out the media’s sexist Clinton pregnancy coverage

Someone wondering if it’s sexist to talk about whether becoming a grandmother will affect Hillary Clinton’s presidential run is like someone pondering whether the sun rises in the morning? Or whether Beyonce woke up like this? It’s a forgone conclusion. Obviously, of course, definitely yes — I mean are you kidding me?
