Top Five

Jimmy Carter and the Southern Baptists

Contributing Editor Mata's commentary on Jimmy Carter’s severing all ties to the Southern Baptist church to protest its treatment of women gave context to a move many saw as shocking. She wrote:

I am so glad he wrote it, but sad that it feels so surprising. And sad that there are not more echoes. And sad that it took so long. And sad that we feel we have to say thank you, because so few religious male leaders have taken this position. And sad that all of our GLBT brothers and sisters can't enjoy the same mention.

Marriott Makes a Mistake With a Woman's Rape

Contributing Editor Nordette expressed shock and outrage after hearing about Marriott accusing a woman raped in front of her toddler in their parking garage for not using her senses and facilities properly, writing:

What I'm saying is that the Marriott has slapped all women in the face with its reprehensible rhetoric in hopes of saving itself from paying damages. Did its attorneys think this story would not reach us?
