+ Prince Harry Dances With Disabled Kids to Katy Perry
+ Watch Prince Harry Dance to Katy Perry
While on his trip to Chile, Prince Harry spent time at Fundacion Amigos de Jesus, a place that helps children with disabilities. And while he was there, he not only danced with the kids, but he danced to Katy Perry’s “Firework.” And got it on film and shared it with the world. Most. Awesome. Prince. Ever.
+ Corporations Are People But Women Aren’t?
In response to the Supreme Court siding with Hobby Lobby over a woman’s right to birth control as part of her healthcare, “Daily Show” co-creator and activist Lizz Winstead wrote, “In 2010, the Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations are people. Today, the court just upped the ante: it ruled that Hobby Lobby, a family-owned craft store, is not only a person but also a person with religious beliefs. While they were at it, the court also decided this newly created religious-corporate-monster-person has the constitutional right to practice medicine – specifically, obstetrics and gynecology – without a license. And the best part is that the rights of this fake religious-corporate-monster-person-doctor supersede the privacy and medical needs of that old definition of a person. You know, a human being.”
+ Beyoncé Runs the (Celebrity) World
Beyoncé sings about how girls run the world, and you know what? Forbes agrees. Actually, Forbes agrees that this particular girl runs the entertainment world. The magazine has released its Celebrity 100 List, and it put Ms. Knowles at number one. Bow down.
+ POTUS Talks Immigration Reform
President Obama said that he’s going to take executive action on immigration reform. This happened because House Speaker John Boehner is refusing to let there be a vote on immigration reform. “If House Republicans are really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, the best solution to that is to passing bills,” POTUS said. “Pass a bill. Solve a problem. Don’t just say no on something that everybody agrees needs to be done.”
+ Gay Conversion Therapy in the Courts
Lady Gaga would say, “You’re born this way,” but there are still some people who believe that “therapy” can change a person’s sexual orientation. This has been discredited, and the state of California forbids gay conversion therapy being done on minors. Some therapists tried to take this to the Supreme Court, but SCOTUS turned the case down.
+ Why Don’t More Women Have IUDs?
IUDs are one of the most effective forms of birth control out there, but not many American women use them. Time asked why this was, and then Jezebel picked up the story. “Why aren’t IUDs more popular?” Jezebel asks. “There’s no worrying about broken condoms or forgotten pills, they last for years and they’re pretty much the definition of ‘set it and forget it.’ Can reproductive health advocates finally convince American women and doctors to consider them?”
+ “Broad City” Is Feminist City
Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson of “Broad City” are loud and proud feminists. Abbi said, “I would totally say I’m a feminist. I don’t find it to be negative at all.” Ilana added, “I feel like a feminist is gender equality. You know, we’re feminists… the people who work on the show [Broad City] are feminists.”
