Pervy New Dress Code
  • A woman claims she was fired from O’Hara’s, a bar near UCLA, for complaining about a new dress code for women that required wait staff to wear short, plaid school girl skirts  and place fans around the restaurant to blow their skirts up! Ew. Creepy. The woman wrote a letter to her boss registering her complaint, then quickly saw her hours reduced before being fired three days later. That fan thing is straight-up sexual harassment: indefensible in any workplace.
  • Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley vetoed a bill last week which would have provided free HPV vaccinations for young ladies. Some strains of HPV are known to cause cervical cancer in women. [Think Progress]
  • A teenaged lesbian couple were found shot in a Portland, Texas park. Mollie Oligin, 19, died from her injuries, and Mary Chapa, 18, was rushed to the hospital and is now in stable condition. Its unclear whether the young women’s sexuality factored in the attack. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Is This Awkward Or Is It Just Us?

The mistress with the mostess Rielle Hunter must be taking lessons from the Bristol Palin School Of Whining About The Media Attention She So Dearly Loves. On both “Good Morning America” and “The View” (clips above!) — you know, two little-known programs you probably haven’t heard of! — Hunter says she and John Edwards have broken up because she is “tired of hiding” and complains about “media scrutiny.” All that awful, awful media scrutiny she is receiving for What Really Happened, her tell-all book about her affair with John Edwards!

Will Mississippi Become The First State Without An Abortion Clinic?

Today's Lady News photo
  • On July 1, Mississippi’s only surviving abortion clinic may shut down after a new law goes into effect requiring doctors at the clinic to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. This will likely make it impossible for the clinic to continue operating because three out of four of the clinic’s doctors live out of state, in part to avoid harassment by local anti-abortion protestors. Siiiigh. But no worries: coat hanger abortions are no biggie.  [New York Times]

[W]hat I’ve learned [after being called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh on his show] has less to do with Mr. Limbaugh specifically and more to do with a part of our population that has this view. Because frankly, you don’t go on national radio and talk for several days about something that no one wants to hear. There’s an audience for this type of sexist vitriol. There is real hate and sexism within our society that we have to do something about.

– Here, here, Sandra Fluke! The Georgetown University law student — who was famously called a “slut” and “prostitute” on-air by Rush Limbaugh after she testified before House Democrats about the limited coverage for birth control at her school — was interviewed this week in The New York Times Magazine. Even though I found Fluke’s comments about erotica/pornography ignorant and annoying — Interviewer: “What does feminist porn look like?” Fluke: “I’ll let you know when I find any.” — she was otherwise super articulate and smart, especially when discussing the difference between free speech and slander. I hope Sandra Fluke runs for office someday and unseats some douchebag Rick Santorum acolyte. [NY Times Magazine]
