Out of Order

In other news, Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson says climate change is real and the company supports a tax on carbon emissions. It'll be awkward when the GOP finds itself on the other side of the fossil fuel industry.

Meanwhile, the RNC is warning members not to participate in Trump's voter intimidation operation because they're still under a consent decree issued in 1982. In other words, they have 30 years of voter suppression under their belt.

Finally, 80 percent of the 11,000 Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. since last year are children according to the State Department. The GOP tells us they're all terrorists.

Now, here's the greatest thing I saw today. One of the greatest things ever.

  • “Pants with functional pockets” Now that made me snort. I know what “Nasty Woman” perfume smells like–like sweet, sweet victory.

    Love the 19th amendment in the nasty woman video. And yeah, what’s up with chicks’ pants? Is there a reason they don’t have functional pockets?

    • I love how men don’t know this about female clothing. We are not expected to use pockets because that’s a manly thing to do. We are expected to carry thing sin a purse or not at all. Plus our society expects us to want to have a perfect silhouette and that’s really hard to do with then you have a fat wallet in your back pocket making one butt cheek bigger or a keys in a front pocket making you look like you have a stiffy. So clothing manufacturers do a combination of the following: 1) make no pockets but create the illusion of a pocket with a strip of cloth and a button, 2) make pockets but sew them shut, 3) make pockets so tiny you can’t fit a breath mint in them so they’re fucking useless. This is just one of the many, and I mean MANY, infuriating and idiotic things that women have to deal with that men don’t because our culture has made an executive decision on our behalf.

        So why do manufacturers pretend to have pockets? Either have them or don’t. So strange. I’m surprised I don’t see women walking around in cargo pants with all the junk they feel like they need to carry. My daughter has a female friend who wears cargo shorts. No one seems to care.

        • I don’t know why they do it either, tbh. A woman’s age definitely affects what she is “allowed” to wear and avoid social censure so that same young lady wearing the cargo pants won’t get away with it as she gets older, believe me. I’ll never forget when I was in my 20’s having a judge tell me that I’d better wear a skirt or dress the next time he saw me in his courtroom. I did but I also wore a tie with it because I don’t like being told to do anything by anyone but I needed my job. And I know there are judges out there today saying the same thing. We have sooooo much further to go.

    “Out of Order”. Sounds like a sign they should be putting on the Trump Monster about now.
    Along with, “Unqualified” and “Unfit”. And “Putin’s Puppet”.
