Today’s Lady News: Judge Scolds Mom For Breastfeeding In Courtroom

Today's Lady News
  • Michigan mother Natalie Hegedus was sitting in the back of a courtroom breastfeeding her son when a bailiff spotted her and wrote a note to the presiding jude. When the judge called her up, the judge then asked her if she thought it was appropriate to do that. She told a local TV station that the judge responded “something to the effect of ‘It’s my court, it’s my decision and I do find it inappropriate.’” What a douche! Breastfeeding is exempt from public indecency laws in Michigan, as it should be. [Huffington Post]
  • A transgender woman who was suspended for using the women’s bathroom at Fort Collins High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, has transferred schools. Dionne Malikowski was born a male and now identifies and dresses as a female. The school required her to use the teachers’ bathroom to avoid controversy, but Dionne used the women’s bathroom instead because not being allowed to do so was discrimination. [The Denver Channel
  • Behold, a line of sex toys that look to the naked eye (heh heh) like lipstick, eyeshadow, and mascara. Hooray for discretion! [Fashionista]

Finally! At long last, Dominique Strauss Kahn‘s wife has finally gotten a clue (or an STD). Anne Sinclair stood by the former International Monetary Fund chief when he was accused in May of sexually assaulting a hotel maid and reached into her deep pockets to pay his lawyer fees. (All criminal charges were dismissed; a civil case is still pending.) Sinclair even stood by DSK last month when he was accused of using a high-class French prostitution ring.

But now a politician close to the French power couple said Anne has had enough and they “are thinking about (divorce or separation), that’s for sure.” The French newspaper Le Figaro even quoted “friends” of Anne who claim she thinks his reputation is getting “pathetic.”

According to Medco Health Solutions Inc., more than 25 percent of women took at least one drug to treat psychiatric conditions in 2010, most prominently for depression and anxiety. The use of drugs to treat psychiatric and behavioral disorders has risen by 22 percent since 2001, and today roughly 20 percent of all Americans hold such prescriptions. In the 20-44 age bracket, the use of ADHD antipsychotic drugs and treatments has more than tripled, and the use of anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax and Valium has risen by 30 percent. The most common users of antipsychotic drugs today are women aged 45 or older. 

The statistics go on and on, though they share a common trend: a dramatic increase in consumption in all age and sex brackets. Are we becoming crazier, are diagonses becoming more succinct, or are drugs simply becoming more accessible? Keep reading »

After a devastating breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Jackie plunged into a deep despair. “I was in a fog – a fog that wouldn’t lift,” said the 29-year old marketing manager.  There were times Jackie said she didn’t know if she was alive or dead, awake or asleep, coming or going. The acute pain pervaded every moment, every molecule.

That is until one day in August, when Jackie – like millions of rapt Americans – watched incredulously as Gabrielle Giffords climbed those Capitol Hill steps and telegraphed to the world without saying a single world what the congressional representative really represents: indomitable resolve.
