Mike's Blog Round Up
May 8, 2014

How can we respectfully talk about anal sex and the Republicans who find it gross? Or about the right-wing bigotry that is really at the core of it all? (I'll wait…) Links not necessarily work-safe.

Okay, let's get to the rest of the links:

Zandar Versus the Stupid: What science really means to Republicans.

Human Voices: When the First Amendment is only for Christians.

Echidne of the Snakes: When men go after "you women's rights ladies."

Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I: When the Ukraine passes the point of no return.

Messaging Matters: How to bite-size the issue of climate change.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
