Residents in Louisiana town confuse Hebrew welcome sign for ISIS propaganda, gender segregated public transportation, feds raid RentBoy.com and what it tells us about the gendered rhetoric of trafficking, how companies made millions off lead-poisoning settlements and poor black people, thousands rally across U.S. to protest Planned Parenthood even though Americans back federal funds for Planned Parenthood's health services, some Duke freshmen have opted not to read "Fun Home" because it violates their Christian beliefs, frat at Old Dominion University designates house "Freshman Daughter Drop Off," Texas judge sentences a man to marry his girlfriend, #LPH Book Club, and #LPH Mail about street harassment

Daily micro aggressions
So lean back and flail
