  Tweet of the Day: A Handmaid’s Tale Is a Warning to Conservative Women     “I am a Christian.” Are not Lutherans, Roman Catholics, Mormons, Mennonites, Anglicans, Eastern Orthodox, and Quakers not Christians?

Space for Rent: Look but Don’t Touch

Tweet of the Day: Alisa Valdes: Anti-feminist romance not so romantic ——- Sounds simple enough, every responsible parent makes sure their children learn the difference between admiring an object and manipulating without permission.

Main-character lesbians on TV tend to fall into this category more often, as it’s often seen as “safer”, unless the show is going for “edgy”. […]
