The epitome of American progressivism: snubbing 2.2 billion human beings, a third of the planet’s population, on their most major holiday, to remember a guy’s birthday that isn’t even a round number.

The epitome of Christian entitlement. Many of the country’s stores are closed for Easter, the news covers Easter events, Easter specials are being played on TV, many schools are going to be closed for Spring break the week after Easter. But ONE MEASLY website decides to celebrate the birthday of a man that was very important in this nation’s history instead, and some of you are butt hurt about it????

love it!

Also 86 is definitely a round number.

Senator Gillibrand Presses Military Leaders On Sexual Assault

Senator Gillibrand questions military officials on sexual assault at the Senate Armed Services Committee Hearing on sexual assault in the military.

@SenGIllibrand | Facebook | KirstenGillibrand.com 

It’s possible the veritable epidemic of sexual assaults faced within the military may finally be coming under a deserved, withering spotlight, as Gillibrand’s forceful stand on the issue earlier this week came in concert with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s order to review the power afforded to commanders to overturn convictions within the military. Hagel’s decision was spurred by the controversy of an Air Force lieutenant colonel, convicted of sexual assault, only to be reprieved.

She is my hero. Damn.

“But if she says, ‘I love you,’ and I say, ‘I know,’ it’s beautiful and it’s acceptable and it’s funny,” he pleaded. “The point is, I’m not worried about myself anymore; I’m worried about her.” Harrison Ford about the “I know” line in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

The neighborhood boys have grown taller

than their absent fathers.

 

My girl use to be one of the boys,

throat a gun tossed in to a river

fist fight for a mouth

bag of ice for a father.

 

Then her body grew soft where she did not want it soft

grew full, grew heavy, grew ripe

if the boys see then the boys will become hungry.

 

My girl avoids mirrors

binds her breasts like a secret

buries the dead in between her legs

every month bleeds like she is a wound

calls out the names of the dead like lottery numbers

and all the names sound like her own.

 

My girl picks her father from a list of fatherless rappers,

measures her thighs in her bedroom

is on a diet, forever

is a red balloon stolen from a party

deflating in a corner.

 

Her first kiss, a boy who does not like girls

unless they are face down on a mattress. 

 

My girl has a blank cd for a father,

the back seat of car for a mother.

 

Once in a basement when the music was on

and she thought no one was looking

and she could not help herself

and the body wanted to move

and the body it did move

and the body became almost sound,

she was wet from the bass in her stomach.

 

Everyone wanted to be like her,

that splinter in the oversized shirt.

  

My girl is the knife in the family portrait

the miscarriage at the sleepover

pink bubblegum expanding from a whores lips

riding the carousel with a nose bleed

glitter in a coffin

confetti in the barrel of a gun,

Is fun.

 

My girl is holy, is sacred, is pure

is clean, is loved, is whole, is beautiful

is worthy, is okay, is alone, is just fine

just the way you are girl

just the way you look babe

with that dirty mouth

and those hands, wherever they have been

and that sadness, whatever caused it

and that anger, wherever it came from

and that fear, who ever brought it

you are my girl, girl, you are me.
