Today in Call Me A Waaaah-mbulance News: Texas theater professor Linda Ozmun is suing her employer for citing her in an annual review for refusing to attend a gay-themed show performed by students back in 2010. Ozmun claims she refused to attend for religious reasons, but Lamar University wrote on her annual review in 2011 that not going to the students’ performance was “unacceptable.” Lamar also brought a performer to campus to perform a show and workshop dealing with subjects around homosexuality and Ozmun asked to be recused from attending; the school threatened her with disciplinary action if she did not go.   Keep reading »

– O.G. feminist hater Phyllis Schlafly, to a group of cadets she’s instructing at the Citadel. She’s teaching a new course there titled “Conservative Intellectual Tradition in America” and wanted to warn the cadets that evil feminist impulses might be lurking beneath their demure feminine girlfriends.

In yet another blow to their species (and their dignity), two pandas at the Edinburgh Zoo  refused to “do sex” this week and gift the world with a baby panda. Female panda bears only ovulate once a year, so the pressure was on for Sweetie and Sunshine, who had a 36 hour window to get it in. Zookeepers respectfully turned off the zoo’s public “pandacam” to give the bears some privacy and opened the zoo’s “love tunnel” between their separate enclosures to encourage romance. Things seemed promising when that filthy little minx Sweetie “called out incessantly” to her lover, as us ladies are wont to do, and pressed her nose and paws up against a grate. (There’s video here and it’s safe for work, but rather indignifying.) Keep reading »

  • Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old Iraqi-American, was murdered last month in an attack that police, and the country at large, thought was an anti-Muslim hate crime. But new documents obtained suggest family violence  — of some sort — in the California woman’s death. Alawadi was supposedly planning to divorce her husband and move out of state when she was killed. Her 17-year-old daughter was also “distraught” over a forced, arranged marriage to a cousin. Police haven’t implicated anyone in particular in the murder, but are supposedly less certain the death was a simple hate crime. [UTS San Diego]
