Make no mistake, hostile school environments encompass much more than peer-on-peer bullying: dress codes, unenumerated policies, lack of access to LGBT resources, and zero tolerance policies, for example, all feed the school-to-prison pipeline.

Alas, our next generation of conservative leaders are not chanting, “Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!” They are, instead, chanting, “F**k O-bama! F**k O-bama!”
And I hang my head.
So, now, children at the hotel, parents, staff, tourists - both foreign and domestic - and every other conceivable variety of guest who happens to be staying at the Gaylord National hotel during CPAC 2014 has a skewed, and likely irreversible, first impression of America’s conservative movement.
Or is it skewed?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m certain that the vast majority of CPAC attendees, both young and old, are as appalled and embarrassed by these drunken yuck monkeys as am I.
But I think the very fact that these blazer-clad, Cro-Magnon morons could even imagine, for a moment, that it’s somehow cool to publicly chant “F**k Obama!” - or “F**k” anything for that matter - speaks to a much larger problem, not just within the conservative movement, but, more importantly, within our entire culture.
“So a friend of mine recently told me I had no idea how hard it was being a girl, because when she wears leggings, everybody stares at her butt, so today, I’m going to find out exactly how hard it is,” says Erakat in the video above.
The YouTube video, which currently has over 6 million views, is making an important statement about women dealing with unwanted stares and attention on a daily basis — even when just going to a yoga class.
I can’t help it, I have to do the “wingnut” voice!
I knew it. Our Marxist Muslim President will destroy us all! He is an enemy of America, and is siding with the Muslim brotherhood and Al Qaeda, even through we have no real evidence to suggest that he is!
Because the Conservative Political Action Conference is not radical enough, far, far-right extremists who have not been allowed to participate there held their own event this week -the National Security Action Summit.
One of the panelist was Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (retired), the executive vice president of the ultra-conservative hate group Family Research Council.
The Bleach Blonde From Hell reminds us once again how ugly and bigoted her world is. CPAC is where Democracy Goes To Die. Ann Fugly states her case. Don’t step in it.
“I think [women] should be armed but should not vote…women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend it…it´s always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care.” - AC 2001
How Hobby Lobby Supporters Talk About ‘Religious Liberty’: 5 Outrageous Quotes That Show It’s All About Sex
Hobby Lobby executives and other conservative opponents of the contraception mandate of the Affordable Care Act have argued that the legal challenge before the Supreme Court right now is about “religious liberty” — not controlling women’s access to healthcare or their personal lives.
That veneer falls away pretty quickly when you read the court briefs filed in support of Hobby Lobby, which are almost uniformly about controlling women’s sexuality and the apparent horrors of decoupling sex from reproduction.

Relying entirely on the 2011 IOM Report, the Government asserts that by increasing access to contraceptives, the Mandate will promote public health by decreasing unintended pregnancies. At the risk of stating the obvious, getting pregnant is not like catching a contagious disease.
If the Government intends to broaden the definition of ‘women’s health and well-being,’ and thus the goal of the Mandate, to include non-health related concepts such as emotional well-being and economic prosperity, then it should likewise have considered the documented negative effects the widespread availability of contraceptives has on women’s ability to enter into and maintain desired marital relationships. This in turn leads to decreased emotional wellbeing and economic stability (out-of-wedlock childbearing being a chief predictor of female poverty), as well as deleterious physical health consequences arising from, inter alia, sexually transmitted infections and domestic violence.
Manchester United have risked further accusations of acting in a heavy-handed manner towards their fans after it emerged that one supporter’s Twitter account was suspended because it featured the official club crest.
Even though the function of the @ManUtd_Players account is to list everyone who has represented United and Newton Heath, and only has 138 followers, it is understood that club’s brand protection department weighed in to insist that the logo was taken down because it breached copyright laws.
The supporter, Jack Holt, had his account suspended on Monday after Twitter wrote to him saying it had ‘received multiple, compliant DMCA takedown notices for content posted to your account’.
At first, Project ROSE may seem similar to the many diversion programs in the United States, in which judges sentence offenders to education, rehab, or community service rather than giving them a criminal record. What makes ROSE different is that it doesn’t work with the convicted. Rather, its raids funnel hundreds of people into the criminal justice system. Denied access to lawyers, many of these people are coerced into ROSE’s program without being convicted of any crime. Project ROSE may not seem constitutional, but to Roe-Sepowitz, “rescue” is more important than rights.
In November 2013, Roe-Sepowitz told Al Jazeera: “Once you’ve prostituted you can never not have prostituted… Having that many body parts in your body parts, having that many body fluids near you and doing things that are freaky and weird really messes up your ideas of what a relationship looks like, and intimacy.”
“As a social worker, you’re supposed to see your clients as human beings,” Monica told me. “But her way of thinking is that once you’re a sex worker, you can never not be a sex worker.”
