Tony The Tiger Loves To Swim

Florida has outdone itself yet again. Kids swimming with baby alligators is not the most dangerous thing you can do at a birthday party. That would now be swimming in a pool with a Siberian tiger cub. Keep reading »

  • Finally some details on the monster fight between Lindsay Lohan and her mother Dina that had cops responding to a 911 call at the Lohan family’s Merrick, Long Island lair. After partying together all night in NYC until 4 a.m. on a Tuesday night, as all of us do with our mothers, Lindz supposedly wanted to take a cab to her hotel in the city. But a “wasted” Dina insisted the cab fare was too much (?) and made her daughter came all the way to Long Island. During the ride, Lindsay confronted her mom about an unpaid $40K loan and then things got physical. Naturally, Lindsay called her dad, Michael Lohan, who called 911 from down in Florida. Oh, I just knew Michael Lohan would factor into this somehow. Cops descended on the house around 7:30 a.m., but no charges were filed against either Lohan and they were even snapped hugging it out earlier today. Oh, Lohans, Lohans, Lohans.

  • Oh squee of squees! Elizabeth Banks from “Wet Hot American Summer” and “30 Rock” is producing a sitcom for CBS about “the culture clash as a feminist professor rooms with Playboy Bunnies and they all struggle for their own sort of empowerment.” I’m over Playboy Bunnies as a pop cultural discussion point for feminism. But whatever! I guess I’ll have to take my feminism on mainstream TV where I can get it.  [Perez Hilton]
  • The man who raped a 73-year-old woman in Central Park last month also sexually assaulted two other women on the day of the attack before he was arrested. He had also sexually assaulted two elderly women in the past. Hmm, here’s an idea: don’t let rapists out of jail.  [NYMag.com]
  • A brief history of Mitt Romney flip-flopping about abortion, based on his recent comments that messing with abortion rights is not on his agenda. It’s also probably worth reading his “Pro-Life Pledge” on the National Review website, too.  [Jezebel, National Review] Keep reading »

No Stigma Over Abortion

I love any time activism is infused with joy. That’s why I’m loving these Australians who held a pro-choice flash mob where they all danced on the streets of Melbourne to Florence + The Machine’s “Dog Days Are Over.”  These Aussies — both women and men, old and young — woreT-shirts reading “Abortion: a fact of life” as part of Reproductive Choice Australia’s End The Stigma campaign. It’s an attention-getting stunt that’s moving without being in your face.

After the jump, you’ll also want to watch ethicist Leslie Cannold in her TEDxCanberra 2012 talk, “I Had An Abortion … Or Maybe I Didn’t.”

Slutty slut sluts should keep their legs closed if they aren’t prepared for an unwanted pregnancy resulting from sex. But the rules are a little different, obviously, if you are a conservative lawmaker. Fret not if you co-sponsored the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, the Life at Conception Act, and numerous other pieces of anti-abortion legislation. Because if it’s you who was actually having the sex, all those other rules and morals and condemnations don’t apply. Especially if you’re married and the person who got pregnant is your mistress. Then abortion is totally okay. Encouraged even!
