Bisexual Species: Unorthodox Sex in the Animal Kingdom: Scientific American

Bisexual Species: Unorthodox Sex in the Animal Kingdom: Scientific American: "“The more homosexuality, the more peaceful the species”"

I could have told you that.


Ed Brayton knows what Patriotism SHOULD be.

And I couldn't agree more.
Dispatches from the Culture Wars: Patriotism, Conservative and Liberal: "My allegiance is not to a nation and much less to a flag, but to a set of principles. When my country supports those principles, I support my country; when it fails to do so, I do not support it. America can only be great if America is good, if our actions are in line with the ideals we so loudly proclaim. It is a cliche, but it remains true that actions speak far louder than words."


President Barack Obama acknowledges our existence.

It's a tiny mention, but a huge step.

Text of President Barack Obama's inaugural address - Yahoo! News: "We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and non-believers."

Nod to Ezra Klein.


A Spirited Misunderstanding | Center for Inquiry

Tom Flynn at Free Thinking writes about that problematic word that I despise, spirtual.

"(T)hese seasoned nurse managers were talking about patients whom the nurses believed they must not touch, or comfort, or support in any human way – out of respect for the worldviews of patients who disdain ordinary human contact because they’re not spiritual."

Fuck your God!

In Defense of Dignity - Features - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper: "The proper response to religious opposition to choice or love or death can be reduced to a series of bumper stickers: Don't approve of abortion? Don't have one. Don't approve of gay marriage? Don't have one. Don't approve of physician-assisted suicide? For Christ's sake, don't have one. But don't tell me I can't have one—each one—because it offends your God.

Fuck your God."

Nod to PZ Myers.


Pharyngula: In which my disgust with the Democratic Party grows

Once again, the wonderful and irrepressible PZ Myers: "...prayer...(is) the equivalent of masturbation, only it provides an even lesser sense of accomplishment."


I've fallen deeply in love with Amanda Marcotte.

After reading this quote. Figuratively that is; I'm not switching sides or anything.
pandagon.net: "Touchy religious nuts can completely fuck off."
