Amanda Marcotte says she lowballed the cost of birth control

http://twitter.com/#!/SalmonCzar/status/485492312449900544 Just yesterday, our favorite feminist Amanda Marcotte tweeted that, without insurance, birth control between now and menopause would cost her $22,000. That certainly seems like a lot of money, but today, in response to critics, Marcotte is saying she actually lowballed that figure. One hundred dollars a month without insurance is low? As we keep pointing out, most major pharmacies in the U.S. charge around $9 per month for birth control pills, which comes to $108 a year. Plus, low-income people can obtain subsidized (often free) birth control […]

‘Such hate for a #NOH8-r’: Dan Savage sneers at Duggar daughter’s virginity

http://twitter.com/#!/ThePantau/status/456915629409570816 Jill Duggar, one of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 children, is engaged to be married. But Dan Savage isn’t wishing them well. No, the guy behind the “It Gets Better” campaign is much too busy obsessing over their virginity: http://twitter.com/#!/fakedansavage/status/456908657301528576 Jill and her fiancé have chosen to wait until their wedding night to consummate their relationship. In Savage’s world, that’s not just uncool — it’s downright shameful and worthy of derision. Other “anti-bullies” joined Savage in his creepy viciousness: http://twitter.com/#!/00_Gram/status/456909146978533376 http://twitter.com/#!/Fly_Pete/status/456921839051493376 http://twitter.com/#!/JohnBrase/status/456914789709533184 Charming.

http://twitter.com/#!/evilhag/status/481114930637062144 Recently, Katy Perry offered to write a theme song for Hillary Clinton’s still hypothetical 2016 campaign. Following that, “Parks and Recreation” actress and comedian Aubrey Plaza offered her services for the Hillary 2016 cause.

http://twitter.com/#!/mdrache/status/406452794917277696 Hey, even Occu-twits need credit cards to buy new tech gear from Big Business so they can tweet the revolution. Or something. Here’s one of the icky capitalist ads that popped up in our #WalmartStrikers feed today. https://twitter.com/SamsungMobileUS/status/406422315296391168 This promoted tweet seems especially appropriate: http://twitter.com/#!/Beggin/status/406388320110141440 Beggin’ Strips?

We’ll give you one guess who Iran’s president blamed for existence of ISIS

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/514868120578977794 Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is in New York for meetings at the United Nations. Rouhani addressed the bombings of ISIS and said that the existence of the terrorist group was the result of … well, you might have guessed it by now: #Terrorism is a global problem, but military action is not the answer. @NewAmerica #RouhaniLive #UNGA — Hassan Rouhani (@HassanRouhani) September 24, 2014 #ISIS born out of destruction of #Iraq & #Afghanistan–did not exist prior to 2003 & would likely not have come about in […]

‘HILLARIOUS’: Mrs. Clinton has jokes for ‘The View’

http://twitter.com/#!/theviewtv/status/467320529699864576 Hillary, stop! Our sides! She’s a crooked Arkansas lawyer who rode her husband’s coattails to political power as a carpetbagging senator from New York then was exiled from the country appointed Secretary of State by Barack Obama. Plus, she’s got JOKES! Maybe she could use “running around the park with the dogs” as her answer when someone asks her where she was while Americans were dying in Benghazi. http://twitter.com/#!/scottmeslow/status/467340890592522240 http://twitter.com/#!/germainperez/status/467336485088546816 Of course it did.
