I was as MIA as I get (meaning hours went by without a text or call from me, which I'm sure the xoJaners were celebrating!) due to the fact that I chased Juno from NY to Toronto this week, where I was giving a speech. So who am I to say whether the writers should have covered these topics or not?

Google Translate will no longer translate gay slurs. [Bustle]

Ohio has halted all lethal injections in 2015. [Washington Post]

Fox News' Megyn Kelly spoke up for smoking, drinking, premarital-sex-having women in charge, and it was awesome. [Jezebel]

Which of these items do you think the writers here should have covered? Which of these topics do you just want to talk about in the comments? Well, here's my weekly version of a links round-up, in case you have nothing you'd rather do right now than read them. (You can always hijack the comments here too if you have other things you want to talk to me about. I never mind.)

P.S. Thanks to the wonderful Amber for taking over my office and hosting your Open Thread yesterday!
