Reynolds v. United States

Here is the Wikipedia article for the Supreme Court case I talked about with regard to Mormonism and plural marriage in Gayish: 016 Mormon (w/ Derek Flora).

Gosh, does any of it sound familiar? It’s from 1878. Religion does not permit a citizen to “become a law unto himself”. (From

“The court considered that if polygamy was allowed, someone might eventually argue that human sacrifice was a necessary part of their religion, and ‘to permit this would be to make the professed doctrines of religious belief superior to the law of the land, and in effect to permit every citizen to become a law unto himself.’ The Court believed the First Amendment forbade Congress from legislating against opinion, but allowed it to legislate against action”

How To Make A Giant Ogre Dick

Step 1 – Find some skin toned color knee high socks in a stretchy fabric.  I suggest the ones that aren’t super pale, and aren’t super black.

Step 2 – Get some stuffing!

NOTE: In the podcast I call this “quilter’s batting” THIS IS INCORRECT. You want the stuff that is loose and not in a roll. It is often called stuffing or fill.

Step 3 – Fill the sock to your desired girth, and tie at the top. I used a clear plastic hair tie.

Start slappin’ your friends!

Kyle Isn’t Sexist!

Good news! I’m not sexist. At least, not this time.

There have been studies that show that men are scientifically better at directions than men. But I was a little simplistic in my explanation. According to an article in Science Daily: “‘In simple terms, women are faster at finding things in the house, and men are faster at finding the house,’ Pintzka says.”

Also, the theory that there’s iron in men’s noses that helps them with directions doesn’t seem to be true at all, based on this article. But hey, I’m still not sexist.

New York Times Safe Space Article

Check out the NYT opinion piece that I got some of my information from for the Safe Space episode.

“But the notion that ticklish conversations must be scrubbed clean of controversy has a way of leaking out and spreading. Once you designate some spaces as safe, you imply that the rest are unsafe. It follows that they should be made safer.”
