What are your favorite science resources?

OhioSciOrg

Halp! I’m going to do an interview with James Zimmerman from Minnesota Atheists next week. He wants to talk science, which I’m super excited about, and he’s asked me to come prepared with some resources that I can list for adults who want to learn more about science.

If you haven’t met Jazz…

I’m very late to this party, but damn. This is Jazz. She’s incredible. Her parents and siblings are incredible. It makes me very emotional to see a transgender girl who has been so loved and supported. Her parents have fought for her right to be herself, and they’ve raised her with such an apparent sense of self-worth, …

Grand Canyon

I’m traveling this week! To California. In February. I win. I mean, it’s for work, but it’s still traveling to California in the middle of a cold, damp Minnesota winter.

The Empty Sidewalk

IMAG0033 (645x1024)

I showed up for clinic escorting last Wednesday in Minneapolis. It was me and one other escort. And that was it. No protesters. No gruesome signs. No pamphlets stuck under the windshields of patients who don’t want them. No little plastic fetuses. No shouting. No shaming. No tears. I held the door open for some …

What? That’s not racist!

Here’s the story – a male cop in St. Paul, Minnesota decided it would be funny and clever to dress up as a female Somali Target employee for a private Halloween party that he attended last year. He wore a hijab, tucked a cell phone next to his face underneath the hijab, and pinned a …
