VIDEO: Republican Man Explains Why Republican Men Shouldn't Talk So Much About Women

These days, it seems you can't even brush your teeth without hearing some male politician say something stupid and/or offensive about rape. So it wasn't all that surprising when Indiana's Republican Senate candidate, Richard Mourdock, said “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended to happen,” in a recent debate. What I hadn't imagined was that a politician, let alone a Republican who just ran for president, would finally tell all these other guys to sit down and shut up.

As face masks have become mandatory in many places to limit the spread of coronavirus, it's also become an increasingly politicized thing. As we know, anything that involves political polarization also involves vast amounts of misinformation and disinformation. Whose idea was the internet again?

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
