Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

Dump DOMA

Dump DOMA


In 2008, PFAW started a campaign to repeal the discriminatory so-called "Defense of Marriage Act." Yesterday, that campaign got a major boost. 

President Obama yesterday ordered the Department of Justice to stop defending DOMA in court on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. And following the announcement, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said that she would introduce legislation to repeal the law. This is nothing short of huge. 

Join our campaign to Dump DOMA by telling leaders in Washington to REPEAL this discriminatory law. 

President Obama opposes DOMA and has long acknowledged its discriminatory nature, but the explicit acknowledgement that it is unconstitutional and the decision not to defend the law signals a new era for the federal government's legal treatment of same-sex couples and the LGBT community as a whole. 

Please sign the petition and then help spread the word. 

-- Michael Keegan, President
