"This is "mommy blogging" at its worst. It is someone who is trying to deny the rights and free speech of others because she thinks her kid is in danger... And don't give me that, "But I'm so liberal," bullshit because, when it comes down to it, when it comes down to the thing you care about the most - your kid - your political beliefs go right away and you're just another privileged heterosexist asshole. You are part of the problem. If you're too weak to stand up for what you believe in, and instill those beliefs in your child, then maybe you should be the one reading about parenting instead of writing about it."

-- Gawker writer Brian Moylan in a takedown of a mommy blogger complaining that her young son would have to see a billboard for a hookup iPhone app. Moylan's rant made me good tickle inside. It's a thing of beauty.
