Surprise, surprise

So THIS just appeared across the street:

 

It’s the first VOTE YES marriage amendment sign I’ve seen anywhere, let alone in a deeply blue corner of the People’s Republic of South Minneapolis. ¬†I don’t know the neighbors, who haven’t attended a National Night Out function in the nine years I’ve lived here and therefore haven’t clue about the many LGBT people living on our street and on streets nearby.

I think I’m supposed to feel rage or contempt, but mostly, I just feel sad.

Really sad.

Sigh.

    We were actually worrying if the Vote Yes: Because Why Not Hate People For Funsies? folks were just not bothering to campaign in the Cities, because we’ve literally only seen Vote No signs. Interesting to see this one. Sorry your neighbors are evil.

    My six-year-old pronounces vote-no-don’t-limit-the-freedom-to-marry as one word. He’s recently started reading and counts the signs as we drive. It’s pretty cute.

    Ugh. To think that I thought these signs didn’t exist…

    It’s hobo code to let other “believers” know that this is a “safe” house.

    If you are not familiar, the legendary “hobo code” was a set of covert markings used to warn other hobos about danger or to clue them into good situations.
    Obviously, your neighborhood is a “danger zone” for the God-fearing folks, so now they know where they can seek shelter.

    Next up, you will see a “Tim Tingelstad MN Supreme Court” with a gavel … you will see these paired in other Districts … like Alan Quist in the First and Michele Bachmann in the Sixth … that way “voters” know who to vote for without having to research who believes the Bible is the only basis for Supreme Court rulings.

"With The Radical Housewife, Shannon Drury shares her journey as a stay-at-home mother and activist, filling in a wide gap within the feminist sphere. Drury not only takes the reader through her own feminist awakening and activist career, but also provides a bit of Feminist 101, reviewing the history of US feminism in an easily accessible way. A mixture of unflinching honesty and snarky humor, this book serves as a necessary reminder that mothers are an integral part of the feminist movement, despite not always being recognized as such." --Avital Norman Nathman, editor of The Good Mother Myth
