Kick Ass Blogger in the Hizzouse

by matttbastard

Yeah, that’s right — Kev has declared it to be so, and, thus, it is so.

Here’s how it works:

Choose 5 bloggers that you feel are “Kick Ass Bloggers”
Let ‘em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they’ve received an award
Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to MammaDawg
Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on!

Anyway, as per the rules, here’s my list (by no means exclusive) of 5 bloggers who kick my ass:

  • Daisy – my favourite radical feminist revolutionary, Daisy is a self-described ‘old lady’ who used to party like a rock star (she still does, for all I know) and perfectly embodies the spirit of ass-kicking.
  • April Reign – the Fearless Leader of the Bread and Roses media empire, April is both a tireless ass-kicking activist and a notorious WordPress theme fetishist.
  • Purtek – eloquent, thought provoking and occasionally profane, Purtek makes Christianity cool.
  • The baby-eaters of Birth Pangs – yes, I realize the rules seem to indicate that individual bloggers are to be recognized for their booty-booting prowess. Well, rules were made to be broken, especially for tireless abortionist-enablers @ BP like fern hill, dBO and Co. who make such a powerful collective impact on so many posteriors
  • The ACR crew – and, since I’ve already bent the rules once, I would be remiss not to recognize the ass-kickers @ A Creative Revolution. Whether taking on the Canadian neocon establishment, founding and administrating the Canadian F-Word Blog Awards, or drinking their way through the best YouTube has to offer, Dr. Pale, Dr. Prole and Dr. Frank are, without qualification, kick ass bloggers.

So there you have it — 5 (ahem) bloggers who kick ass. For more ass-kicking awesomeness please feel free to check out the RSS feeds at the side and the world famous bastard.logic blogroll.

PSA: (To Paraphrase Frank Zappa) Does Humour Belong in Abortion?

by matttbastard

Judging by the relentlessly ridiculous tactics that have been utilized by the baby lobby over the years, I’d say MORE reductio ad absurdum from freedom luvvin’ fetus eaters is warranted.

Help celebrate 1 year of modest pregnancy regulation tomorrow with the Birth Pangs posse by submitting a guest post:

Want to have a go at a BP-style post? Go for it. Prefer your own style? That’s fine. We’re all about choice at BP.

Not up to a full post? No worries. We’re planning a Birth Pangs Party Page, where comments, especially nice ones about BP, can be posted.

New to blogging? Not sure what to do? We can post for you if you send us your finished draft.

My delightfully sarcastic and trivial homegrrl fern hill murders a Progressive ally unambiguously disassociates herself from Woodley’s insipid Sister Souljah moment.
