Today's Lady News photo
  • In response to a Change.org petition, Seventeen magazine has said it will no longer alter the body size or face shape of the models posing in its magazine. The petition was created by Julia Bluhm of Waterville, Maine, and garnered over 84,000 signatures which were hand-delivered to the executive editor of Seventeen. [Change.org/Seventeen]
  • North Carolina’s Republican-controlled state legislature has overrode a veto by Governor Bev Perdue, effectively defunding the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics. State funding is not used for abortion services, so the defunding will only be hurting those who go to Planned Parenthood clinics for other services, like Pap smears and cancer screenings.  [Huffington Post]
  • The FDA has approved the first quick, over-the-counter HIV test. OraQuick uses a mouth swap and can tell your HIV status in less than 40 minutes. [AP] Keep reading »

Please tell me this is a joke. This is a joke, right?

The office of a Republican politician in Brooklyn, New York, will be offering a class for women in his district about “Posture, Deportment, and Feminine Presence.” Ostensibly this is a career development event about etiquette, but the packaging is really, really WTF. Keep reading »

“Call me in one hour and tell me your boyfriend dumped you,” I told my girl friend as we stood outside the movie theater where we had just seen “Magic Mike.” “If the party’s weird and I want to leave, I’ll say ‘Oh my God, are you okay? I’ll come meet you!’ Got it?”

“Sure thing,” my friend promised.

“I’m texting you the address I’m going to right now,” I told her, tapping on my iPhone. “Just in case these people turn out to be rapist-murderers.”

“I’m sure they’ll be fine,” she soothed me. We hugged goodbye and parted at a street corner. “Have fun!” is what she called as I walked away.

Have fun at your spanking party is what she meant. Keep reading »
