This is about finding out that vicious LJ troll Winterfox is the same person as Requires Hate is the same person as a very recent Campbell Award nominee.

Personally, I think the person who revealed her name was wrong to do so (because he had a position of power over her as an editor), but also that WF/RH was a vicious internet bully and am having trouble reconciling that with the pleasant SFF writer. (I read her work on the Campbell slate and was meh about it. It was well written but not my general thing.)

There’s an apology on her blog now.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

I was called a NAZI for showing a woman the entrance to a clinic. My family is Jewish and Slavic and both of my grandfathers fought for the Allies. The logic is really lacking and really painful.

BREAKING: 40,000 Voter-Registration Applications Submitted by Blacks and Hispanics Disappear in Ga.

It’s one thing to misplace your keys, your wallet, a receipt from Macy’s or your favorite pen, but Georgia’s secretary of state cannot account for approximately 40,000 voter-registration applications that, if processed, would enfranchise predominantly black and Hispanic Georgians.

According to an Al-Jazeera report, it’s a sentiment that the staffers at Third Sector Development are expressing. The nonprofit organization was on a mission to register as many black and Hispanic people in the state of Georgia as possible so that voter turnout for the upcoming midterm elections in November would be high. And they were successful at it, until they received word that about half of the applications they submitted for processing have gone missing in action.

“Over the last few months, the group submitted some 80,000 voter-registration forms to the Georgia secretary of state’s office—but as of last week, about half those new registrants, more than 40,000 Georgians, were still not listed on preliminary voter rolls. And there is no public record of those 40,000-plus applications, according to state Rep. Stacey Adams, a Democrat,” Al-Jazeera explained.

Georgia Secretary of State Brain Kemp explained that his office is not doing anything differently from how it usually processes applications. But some people aren’t buying his story, seeing as how he’s a Republican, and black and Hispanic people tend to vote for Democrats.

Georgia Republicans have been raising eyebrows for some time now with regard to early voting and voter-ID issues. One state Republican didn’t like how black and Hispanic voters had easy access to early-voting opportunities.

The “Republican whip of the state Senate complained that DeKalb County, Ga., was making it too easy for minorities to vote by allowing early voting in an area mall close to many predominantly African-American churches,” Think Progress reports.

Third Sector Development is not taking lightly the news that no one knows what became of its hard work to get people to register to vote. The group is going to court so that a judge can look into it.

“To that end, Third Sector Development announced yesterday that, after weeks of fruitless negotiations with the state, they were going to court to find out the status of the missing registrations—or, more to the point, the eligibility of more than 40,000 potential voters,” Al-Jazeera reports.

Woooow. You see how they do??

ELECTION OBSERVERS FOR THE UNITED STATES PLEASE.

This happened at my undergrad—the county courthouse “lost” over a hundred registration cards that had been collected on campus, because they didn’t like the idea of students voting in local elections. But this to orders of magnitude more frightening.

No words.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

I discovered the best anime and I totally did not expect it

At first I thought Mouretsu Pirates (also known as Bodacious Space Pirates) would be, as its name suggests, a bunch of fanservice but it’s actually one of the most incredible animes I’ve ever seen AND HERE’S WHY in a convenient list:
