DC Metro Rape Highlights Why Women Are Always Aware of Rape:
“Earlier this week, a man was arrested in the rape of a woman on a Washington, DC metro train. That’s Washington, DC, USA, not Washington, DC, ‘Somewhere-over-there-where-women-have-it-much-worse-so-shut-up.’ He is charged with brazenly assaulting her at knifepoint, on a moving train, at 10 a.m in the morning on a weekday last month. The already beleaguered DC Metro is under fire for not having informed riders of the assault.”

New Research Shows Just How High Stakes Are As Congress Runs Down The Clock On Zika | ThinkProgress:

Velvet draped across my eyes as rain gently kisses my skin. Countless heartbeats fade from memory to fable, promises made then forgotten.
Her footsteps hidden by the wind which gently stirs my mind to other vigils, those chances which caressed my soul only to leave me longing for just one more touch.
Her presence, a pressure of anticipation. My breath staggering within my tightening chest.
Knowing she comes near, longing for her final touch.
RWNJ Franklin Graham Declares Christians Need To Start Dying To Fight Transgender Equality:
“Granted, we all know that Franklin Graham is a right-wing nutjob lugnut who will pretty much say anything in an effort to get attention and so he can make his endless appeals for money from gullible souls who think his perverted version of Christianity is what God wants them to believe.

Graham is now calling for Christians to die for the cause of fighting transgender equality in America. Yes, you read that right: This lunatic says people should be willing to lay down their lives for a cause that is doomed to fail.”
