Buffy is turning 20 this year (if you needed more reasons to feel a thousand years old, fellow long-in-the-tooth millennials). The Atlantic takes us back to The Body: the absolute saddest and most jarring episode of Buffy throughout its seven season run.

 


 

If you’re here in Austin for SXSW, you might have noticed the creepy IRL handmaids soundlessly wandering through the festival this year. Hulu’s Handmaid’s Tale series debuts on April 26th.

 


 

The nicest political news we’ve heard in what feels like years: Irish politicians love Beyoncé (especially Halo).

 


 

State Representative Jessica Farrar, D-Houston, is a treasure and Number One Coolest Legislator At the Texas Lege, is protesting Texas’s onerous, disingenuous women’s health bills. Via the Texas Tribune:

 

That’s why the the Houston Democrat on Friday filed House Bill 4260, which would fine men $100 for masturbating and create a required booklet for men with medical information related to the benefits and concerns of a man seeking a vasectomy, a Viagra prescription or a colonoscopy. The bill would also let doctors invoke their “personal, moralistic, or religious beliefs” in refusing to perform an elective vasectomy or prescribe Viagra, among other proposed requirements in the bill.

 

The booklet is called “A Man’s Right To Know” and mirrors anti-women’s health bunk science the Texas Lege pushes every session. Bless u, Rep. Farrar.

 

 


 

That’s all we’ve got, POMEs! See you back here for even more links to snack on next week.
