There are plenty of crazies on both sides of the political aisle, but as a scientist what REALLY bugs me is total misinformation and the perpetuation of blatantly incorrect information. Again, there are plenty of examples on both sides, but the amazing thing recently is the extent to which anti-abortion legislators will resort to misinformation and lies to push their agenda rather than simply standing on their values and principles. By now most folks have heard about Todd Akin, who said:

First of all, from what I understand from doctors, [pregnancy from rape] is really rare… If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

Which is not just incorrect, it is actually the EXACT OPPOSITE of the truth. This goes along with recent comments by Ann Romney stating it is absurd that a woman should even THINK she deserves to be paid the same as a man, which goes along with repealing equal pay laws in states like Wisconsin, and even so-called ‘women as livestock’ bills where the logic is that if cattle can carry a stillborn fetus, so can women.

Now a group has put out a parody of ‘Call Me Maybe’ (yeah, I know) making a general swipe at what they see as the crazy attempts to over-regulate women by largely old white Christian men. Some of it is specific to a local legislator nicknamed ‘the Cooch’. Check it out:

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!

  1. Why a microscopic, immature, non-sentient, non-sapient zygote should have more rights than the woman in whom it is implanted is something that has always baffled me. Why the rights of that microscopic zygote should trump the rights of the rape victim is completely beyond my understanding.

    But then, I’m a lefty Santa Cruzan at heart.
