Today’s Lady News: Pat Robertson Says Women Have Abortions To Be More Like Lesbians

  • Pat Robertson said liberal women like to “abort their babies” so they can be on “a level playing field” with “lesbians.” That’s an actual quote from his show, “The 700 Club,” people. Does that even make sense? What kind of playing field are we talking about here? Is softball on a field? Also, in Pat Robertson’s sperm bank-less universe lesbians cannot have children. Sigh. Old White Men Who Don’t Get It are the gift that keeps on giving. [Gawker]
  • A Louisiana state rep has proposed a bill that would criminalize all abortions in the state as “feticide” or murder, including abortions in the case of rape, incest or to save the health or life of the mother. This is grim, people. [Mother Jones]
  • Katie Couric officially announced today that she will leave her anchor chair at “CBS Evening News.” Couric was the first-ever woman to anchor a nightly news broadcast solo. [MSNBC]

Rachel Maddow Says Gay News Anchors Have A Responsibility To Come Out

Rachel Maddow is awesome. One of the many reasons I think this is because she is openly gay and often gives shout-outs to her partner, Susan Mikula. In an interview with The Guardian that ran yesterday, Rachel talked a little bit about being one of the few out gay news anchors. She said, “I’m sure other people in the business have considered reasons why they’re doing what they’re doing, but I do think that if you’re gay you have a responsibility to come out.” Which has many folks thinking that she was pointing fingers at the anchor whose sexuality is often the subject of speculation—Anderson Cooper.

Last night, Rachel took to her blog to clear things up. Keep reading »

It may be small in stature, but this baby duck is completely terrorizing that innocent puppy! I know because his bark sounds exactly like Lucca’s when I practice playing Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold” on my ukulele. Keep reading »

Teen Sex Ed Web Site Needs To Stop! Why? Because It Talks To Teens About Sex

Stop the presses, people! Teenagers are on the Internet … reading about sex … and how to do it safely. SCANDAL, right? It is in Massachusetts. MariaTalks.com is a race-, gender- and sexual-orientation-inclusive sex ed website for teens created by the not-for-profit AIDS Action Committee with a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The site provides fact-based information about emergency contraception, birth control, STDs and sexual coercion. In short, it covers all the ground you’d hope a 16- or 17-year-old (or 14- or 15-year-old) would read before getting sexually active. But, oh yes, some politicians have a problem with the website.

Bank Robbers Caught After Bragging On Facebook

When two robbers held up the two tellers working at a small bank in Houston in late March, wearing masks from the dollar store and brandishing toy guns, it looked pretty normal — for a robbery — on the security cameras. The robbers made off with $62K in loot in total. Two days later, one of the tellers—Estefany Martinez—posted on her Facebook page “IM RICH BITCH.” Shortly after, her boyfriend Ricky Gonzalez changed his status to, “WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDEREDS.” That lead police to believe the two might have teamed up for the heist. Authorities have now charged Estefany and her teller friend Anna Margarita Rivera with orchestrating a plot to have Estefany’s boyfriend and Anna’s brother faux rob them up, then split the cash four ways.
