South Dakota Bill Would Require “Crisis Pregnancy Center” Counseling Before An Abortion

South Dakota, will you stop f**king with us? Enough already! South Dakota’s House of Representatives has approved a bill requiring a woman seeking an abortion to be “counseled” first at a so-called “crisis pregnancy center.”

Proponents of the bill say they are trying to assess whether women are being forced to end a pregnancy, as a doctor would have to sign off that the abortion is “voluntary, uncoerced, and informed.” The bill, which refers to the woman as a “pregnant mother” (agenda, anyone?), requires the woman to have pre-abortion counseling and be informed what kind of help is available to them if they continue the pregnancy. The bill also requires the woman to wait 72 hours after first meeting with the doctor who’ll perform the abortion. That time period is what anti-abortion activists claim is giving women time to think, but in reality it makes scheduling the procedure more difficult for working women or women with children, as they have to go to not one appointment, but two. And considering the vast majority of counties in America do not have an abortion clinic, terminating a pregnancy can involve driving long distances in some parts of the country. Keep reading »

What’s Up, Pussycat?

Yesterday a scampish rogue IMed me with a link and the message, “To the only person who loves p**sy and fashion as much as I do.” Oh, dear, I thought, mostly because I don’t like p**sy. But I clicked to link and much to my surprise I’m kinda in love with Elisabeth Moch’s funky Gibson-Girl-slash-I-Can-Haz-Cheezburger cat people. Some people have too much time on their hands … and I like it. [Elisabeth Moch] Keep reading »

Give Me Back My Girl Scout Cookies … Or Else!

A 31-year-old Florida woman loves her Girl Scout cookies so much that she’s willing to fight for them. Hersha Howard was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The cause of the dispute? A box of Thin Mints. Hersha stormed into her roommate’s bedroom in the middle of the night when she discovered her box of Thin Mints had gone missing. The roommate ‘fessed up to the Thin Mint theft and offered to give the pissed cookie monster $10 for the stolen snack, but Hersha wasn’t having it. She attacked the woman with a pair of scissors until the police showed up and arrested her. I, too, get violently upset when someone steals my cookies, but Thin Mints? Come on! I can only imagine pulling a pair of scissors on someone if they ate my Somoas. [Naples News] Keep reading »

Who Is The Biggest Oddball You’ve Dated?

The other night, a friend invited me to an event where her new crush would be reading an excerpt from his book. He was a mustachioed beat poet with a three-piece-suit and a red crocodile pocket protector. No judgement on my end. I have dated some oddballs in my time. I may be queen of the oddballs. I found my mind wandering as he read his 12-page poem, trying to decide how The Poet stacked up against the theater tech guy I dated in high school. When I told Techie I just wanted to be friends, he chased me around his house pretending to be a vampire while threatening to overdose on acid. Oh … memories. After the jump, Frisky staffers and contributors share some of the wackiest dudes they’ve had the pleasure to know. Please share your oddball catalogue in the comments. Keep reading »

Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Working On A Wife-Swapping Movie

My, how far Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have come together in the past 13 years. They’ve gone from being 20-something bachelors doodling math equations on mirrors to both being stand-up citizens with wives and multiple children. So I kind of love that their next movie together is about … two friends who swap wives. “The Trade”—which Ben is writing with his younger brother Casey, and in which he will presumably star alongside Matt—tells the real-life story of two Yankees pitchers in the 1970s, Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson, who decided to trade wives. Mrs. Peterson moved in with Kekich while Mrs. Kekich went to sharing a bed with Peterson. When word got out about the situation, a scandal erupted. Keep reading »
