– Damnit Group Health. This is not acceptable. I don’t care that it’s still going to be available ‘without increased cost,’ when a group that has come out saying it supports reproductive health, it should SUPPORT REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH, not back down. Embarrassing. Group Health to omit abortion coverage on plans sold on state exchange

– It’s despicable how we treat those who don’t earn money by sitting in a cubicle: Largest Strike So Far By Fast-Food Workers Set For Thursday (h/t @scaTX)

– Newsroom had a small story line on this earlier this season. It’s horrifying. People can be such assholes: The Crusading Sisterhood of Revenge-Porn Victims (h/t @JessicaValenti)

– Well this is actually awesome: Treasury Dept.: Married Same-Sex Couples Will Be Respected for Federal Tax Purposes (via @freedomtomarry)
