    It’s shocking, that even in the 21st Century, women can be paid less than men for the same job, but that’s just what was happening at the private Lake Ridge Academy in Cleveland, Ohio.

After complaining, he promptly fired. “[Mr. Whiteman] had nothing to gain and everything to lose by standing up for female teachers that were afraid to do it themselves,” Gregory Gordillo, his attorney, told Metro. Yet, after a dozen years of dedicated service, he was kicked to the curb for smack talking the sexist system. But this week, two years after his termination, justice was finally served!

Sex is dirty in a good way, if you’re doing it right, but sometimes it can be dirty in a bad way. UTIs are caused by bacteria gettin’ all up in your nether-regions and some ladies are particularly prone to them. But the good news is, it can go away almost as quickly as you came! So here’s the 411 on the common crotch conundrum… Keep reading »
