Ingenious misogynists somehow manage to blame the Paris attacks on women

we hunted the mammoth

The Paris attacks: Once again women are to blame, allegedly The Paris attacks: Once again women are to blame, allegedly

Given how many in the Manosphere are proud racists if not literal Nazis, it’s not exactly a shock to see the outbursts of anti-Muslim bigotry that have erupted in this Darkly “Enlightened” corner of the internet in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Skinhead fantasy author and self-professed alpha male Vox Day is calling for “mass deportations” and heralding what he hopes will be the start of “Reconquista 2.0,” a violent backlash against the immigrant “invaders” of Europe.

Subway Announces That a Bullet Is Their Treatment Of Choice For Sick Animals…

Feed Yard Foodie

Tuesday, Subway restaurants made the announcement that beginning in March 2016 it will serve chicken raised without antibiotics. Further, the company will source turkey, pork and beef in the same manner within a 10 year period. A spokesman for Subway stated that company’s goal is “eliminating antibiotics from all of its meat supplies within 10 years”.

There are two different things going on in the above statement that are being blended into a mass of dramatic confusion. I want to take a moment to clarify so that everyone can be educated food purchasers.

  1. Eliminating antibiotics from meat has already been accomplished. THERE ARE NO ANTIBIOTICS IN THE MEAT THAT YOU EAT! It is illegal in the United States to market food animals that carry antibiotic residues. This is a non-negotiable fact of food production. The meat that you purchase from Subway today is free of antibiotics. That is the law…

Accelerating the Mobile Web

WordPress.com VIP

Today we’re announcing support for Accelerated Mobile Pages for WordPress, a new open source initiative spearheaded by Google to dramatically improve performance of the mobile web.

“Speed has always been a cornerstone of Google Search and we’re thrilled to be working alongside others in the tech industry and publishers around the world to bring the Accelerated Mobile Pages Project to life.”
—Dave Besbris, VP Engineering, Google Search

The mission of the WordPress project is to democratize publishing, and with 24.6% of sites running the software—making WordPress the most popular CMS on the web—we feel we’re making good progress.

That success has been built on our openness, our flexibility, and our commitment to delivering the best possible user experience—both for publishers, and their readers.

To that end, we are developing a plugin to support the AMP specification, enabling publishers to produce AMP-formatted content from WordPress without lifting a finger (other than clicking “publish”, naturally). The plugin is still in early stages…

My Body Is Not A Democracy

My Body Is Not A Democracy

My body is not a democracy. My body is an empire and I am its dictator. You do not get a vote. There will be no coup d’etat. Rebel forces will not overthrow me. I am in charge of it forever.

You are welcome to have your opinions. And you are welcome to keep them for yourself. Please do not leave them at the gates of my empire. They will only be thrown in the incinerator, as all of my storage facilities are full.

For the last year, it has felt like there has been an attack on my body, from both the outside and the inside. When I hear the stories of young girls being raped and then bullied by other GIRLS for speaking out, I begin to think I have stepped into some strange world where Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Walker and Ani DiFranco never existed.

When I hear…
