Persons of Interest

Something is rotten in Kansas, and its name is Senator Brownback. Brownback is vying for governor of the state and according to RH Reality Check, might just get his way. A scary prospect for reproductive rights all around, given Brownback’s extremely (some might say, crazy) hard lined edge against abortion and reproductive choice.

Congratulations are in order for Amanda Simpson whom has become the first transgendered person to be presidentially appointed. Simpson is now Senior Technical Adviser to the Commerce Department. Wonderful news, but the comments on that article will ruin your day; every childish sophomoric epithet you can think of is hurled at Simpson.

It is unfortunate to report that feminist philosopher and theologian Mary Daly has passed away at the age of 81. Daly had an extreme way of viewing the feminist movement (very anti male, even anti-trans), but was no less influential to it.
