Motherfucking Indiana

Seriously, we’re just on a roll, aren’t we? First no gay marriage, then ridiculous abortion restrictions…and now one of our Representatives, Mike Pence, is out to remove all government funding for Planned Parenthood. And it passed in the House. I know this happened a couple of days ago, but I’ve been in conference la la …

Hello, California!

After quite the initial adventure getting to the airport (fuck you, Seattle public transportation), I am now safely in Thousand Oaks, California. No, this isn’t just some random vacation funded by my ample graduate student budget – though it will be a lot of fun. I’m here for the Secular Student Alliance’s Southern California regional …

Goddamnit Indiana

This is not a good week for my old state. First, we’re even closer to having an amendment to the Indiana constitution banning gay marriage. Because you know, a law isn’t good enough when you’re homophobic. Now? New abortion restrictions have just won committee approval. HB1210, authored by Rep. Eric Turner, R-Marion, was originally drafted …

Starting weight: 186.4 lbsLast week’s weight: 174.8 lbsCurrent weight: 173.8 lbsWeight loss this week: 1 lb Total weight lost: 12.6 lbs! Wooooo!

Clarifying the Pears

Jen’s Note: I posted Sharon and Lyz’s original article not only because I personally trust them as individuals, but because they are professional atheist organizers with tons of experience in dealing with groups and inclusivity. After watching the video from the panel and hearing the audio of Sean’s talk, I find no evidence that they …

Even subconsciously skeptic

Last night I had a dream that I was hanging out with a group of friends, when God suddenly appeared to me in the form of a five story tall marble statue of an old bearded man, adorned with gold and jewels and bathed in warm light. “Is this enough proof for you, Jen?” he …

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s a photo of me and my date:We met at the Seattle Atheists’ Darwin Day celebration! Once I laid eyes on him, I knew I had to make him mine. Thankfully he only cost a dollar. Don’t judge. Anyway, the event was really fun. About 150 people showed up to partake in the cake, games, …

“What exactly is Christian about being gay?”

The Creation Museum recently hosted a “Date Night” for FamilyLife’s conference in Cincinnati, OH. While usually I’d consider animatronic dinosaurs the true pinnacle of romance, the whole Biblical literalism thing sort of ruins the mood for me. But one journalist decided to check it out with friends, and posted about his experience on reddit: I …
