What The Hell Is An “Unbortion”?

Today in Anti-Abortion Activists Making Up Medical Terms That Don’t Actually Exist And Aren’t Used By Doctors News: the “unbortion.” (For past reference see: partial-birth abortion.”) What’s an “unbortion,” you ask? An “unbortion” is what Resurrection Medical Center, a Roman Catholic hospital in Chicago, calls it when anti-abortion activists persuade a woman who is partway through terminating a pregnancy to halt the procedure and carry the pregnancy to term. According to Time magazine — which published the only article on “unbortions” that I’ve ever seen — four women were persuaded to halt their abortions, but doctors only went along with it in three of the cases.

Oh, and did I mention that “unbortion” is a complete anti-abortion activist fabrication and isn’t an actual medical term used by doctors? Keep reading »

The Public Battle Over Mick Jagger’s Penis Size Rages On

When Keith Richards’ book, Life, came out last year, everyone zeroed in on two short sentences: “Marianne Faithfull had no fun with [Mick Jagger's] tiny todger. I know he’s got an enormous pair of balls—but it doesn’t quite fill the gap.” Mick was apparently very mad about the slight. Ever since, the women he’s slept with have been stepping forward to refute the statement. Jerry Hall, Mick’s ex-wife, was of course one of the loudest voices. “Mick is very well endowed. I should know—I was with him for 23 years,” she said. “Keith is just jealous.”

Now, finally, Marianne Faithfull has something to say on the issue. Keep reading »

Were You A Unicorn, Horse, Or Dolphin Girl?

Bless you, Lisa Frank, for helping me build my unicorn sticker collection and making sure my school supplies were covered with the mythical, rainbow-colored creatures. I know I was not alone in my girlhood unicorn fantasy. Most young girls indulge in some kind of animal enthusiasm. But some experts think there’s a deeper reason for this. Engaging in an obsession, with unicorns, horses, or dolphins specifically, may help young girls become strong women. Why? They help us claim our power. “They’re all active, they’re all sources of power and motion and transformation … these are all borderland creatures; gateway animals to other worlds. They help us imagine wonderful other ways of being in the world. They let us be cowgirls and oceanographers and mermaids and princesses,” says scientist Laurel Braitman. Find out what important qualities each animal represents after the jump. Keep reading »
