Feed Frenzy: “OITNB’s” Boo Shuts Down a Subway Preacher + More

The week’s need-to-know links that have been all up in your feeds.

Colorado elected a Republican exorcist who believes gay people "don't really want the T-shirts ... they want your soul." Actually, gays do want the T-shirts.


West Virginia elected Saira Blair, an NRA-endorsed, anti-choice 18-year-old conservative. Would you entrust a teenager to legislate? Didn't think so. 


A notorious global-warming denier is now leading the Environment and Public Works committee. And now we can honestly say, this is the end of times.  


Linda Chavers tells a strong, heartbreaking tale of living with MS. Her no-holds-barred account cuts right to the core.


This is what it's like to be a young black woman working at Google, where only 2 percent of employees are black. Because the tech world is such an "honest meritocracy."


Multimillionaire pharmaceutical exec Gigi Jordan was found guilty of the manslaughter of her 8-year-old son. A tragedy no prescription could alleviate.


Michigan bans abortion coverage unless a woman's life is in danger. Which effectively puts women's lives in danger.


Howard Stern's sidekick tweeted a slave rape fantasy about ESPN’s First Take host Cari Champion. Because, um, we live in a post-racial, post-feminist society.  


Rose McGowan calls for more male gay feminists. And then was pressured to apologize (which she did). 


Lea Delaria goes off on a homophobic subway preacher, while wearing a 'Bad Jew' T-shirt. Boo knows Scripture.
