Today’s Lady News: You Can’t Ban Gay Teens From Dating, Utah

Today's Lady News
  • The American Civil Liberties Union sent a little FYI to school superintendents across Utah, warning them that “banning” students from dating other students of the same sex is unconstitutional. As in, they can’t do it. The ACLU was prompted to send the reminder when a female student was reportedly asked to leave a school dance because her date was also a girl. [Advocate]

Savvy Squirrel Prepares For Winter

Where do you store your nuts for the winter? This savvy British squirrel stashed hundreds of acorns in the exhaust pipe of a car. When the vehicle failed to start, the driver assumed there was a mechanical problem and called AA, a roadside rescue service. AA employee Andy Smith came to the scene, and was baffled when he could find no obvious issue with the car. Then, while the engine was being revved, Andy saw an air pipe collapse. Upon removing the air intake, countless acorns came pouring out. They removed the remainder of the acorn and the car was restored to working order – but, as Andy Smith said, “I just hope the wee thing has plenty of other stashes buried away for the winter,” or else he’s out of luck. He gets an “A” for intelligence. [Newslite]

Yesterday we learned, courtesy of a New York Post columnist, that Herman Cain‘s sexual harassment accuser Sharon Bialek is too pretty to be credible as a victim because she must have been “asking for it.” I mean, she was wearing lipstick at her press conference, the hussy!

Today we learn, courtesy of a web site called Herman Cain PAC , that another sexual harassment accuser, newly identified on Tuesday as government official Karen Kraushaar, is too ugly to be a victim. She’s an “ugly bitch,” in fact, and a photograph of the competitive equestrian posing with a horse required the caption, “Just to be clear, Karen Kraushaar is the one on the left.”  Keep reading »

That’s a relief.

Mississippi voters failed to pass an anti-abortion “fetal personhood” amendment, which would have defined the beginning of life at conception and therefore criminalized all abortions — including those resulting from rape or incest. Initiative 26, as the ballot measure was known as, also would have criminalized IVF treatments and some forms of birth control because they both involve fertilized eggs. If it had passed, MS would have had the strictest restrictions against abortion in the country. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: NY Post Columnist Suggests Cain Accuser Is Too Pretty To Be Credible

Today's Lady News
  • New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser tore into Sharon Bialek, the first woman to come forward with a face/name while accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment. Why, the attractive blonde is so pretty that she must have been asking for it and/or making it up for more attention!  [The Stir
  • In honor of Election Day, Complex magazine published a list of “The 50 Hottest Women In Politics,” with descriptors like “slutty” and “big-boobed.” Klassy. [Name It Change It]
  • Mississippi is voting on a “fetal personhood” amendment today, which would criminalize all abortions by declaring a fertilized egg as a “person.” Yesterday, while speaking to a crowd, a woman named Cristen Hemmis who was kidnapped, raped and shot twice asked Lt. Governor Phil Bryant, who supports the amendment, to have “sympathy” for women like her. Phil Bryant’s reply? He told her the personhood amendment was a “battle of good and evil of Biblical proporitions” and that if abortion remains legal, “Satan wins.” Yes, he said this to a woman who was KIDNAPPED, RAPED, and SHOT. I give up. [Think Progress, NEMS360.com] Keep reading »
