Louisiana Governor Signs More Abortion Restrictions Into Law

Today's Lady News photo
  • Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has signed into law an increased “waiting period” between the time a pregnant woman views a mandatory ultrasound and when she can have her abortion. The law also says the woman will be offered an opportunity to hear a fetal heartbeat. Such “waiting period” abortion laws are considered by pro-choice activists to be an anti-abortion ploy to make obtaining an abortion more difficult for a women, because it requires more doctor appointments and more time away from work/life. [NOLA.com]

Nerd Girl Porn: Hot Carpenters Of Film & TV

It’s not hard to understand why screenwriters love to make the male lead some kind of carpenter or woodworker: its a vaguely “manly” sounding job yet free-spirited and there’s ample opportunity to take their shirts off. I realized this the other night when I saw “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and fell head over heels in lust with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Catherine Keener’s super-sensitive love interest yet is also a manly-man carpenter. He’s a poor man’s Javier Bardem, but I won’t have to shank Penelope Cruz to get him in bed. Mmm-mmm. You can hammer my nail anytime, Jeffrey. Screw my bolts. Level my 2-x-4. Drill, baby, drill!

Enough with the double entendres. After the jump, eight more hot carpenters of film and television. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with how well they work with their wood. (Sorry.)

Hitman Absolution
Watch Video

Much like the hair and costume folks for Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the marketing folks for video games know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to getting attention for their product. And as we’ve seen all-too-often with video games, the go-to advertising strategy is sex, sex, more sex, followed by a healthy dollop of sexualized violence against women.

The lastest game raising hackles is “Hitman: Absolution” — specifically, its new trailer, “Attack of The Saints,” which features “sexy dominatrix nuns” getting punched, kicked and shot at by the game’s hitman hero, Agent 47.  Keep reading »

Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall’s for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more glamorously: Girls are supposedly waxing their legs, armpits and bikini lines, getting keratin treatments, and even pre-summer camp facials.  Keep reading »
