Today’s Lady News: Male Reporters Dominate Campaign Trail Coverage

  • Reporters on the campaign trail are skewing heavily male, according to an examination by the Columbia Journalism Review. According to NYU journalism professor Meryl Gordon, politics reporters at newspapers, glossy magazines and blogs are mostly men, and when there are women, there is usually only one or two. This, of course, is echoed in coverage on the campaign trail. [Columbia Journalism Review]
  • Props to Jessica Ahlquist, 16, of Rhode Island, who successfully won a legal battle over a religious prayer banner which was hung in the Cranston High School West auditorium. Jessica contacted the Rhode Island chapter of the ACLU last year, which brought the case to a federal judge. Yesterday, the judge ruled that the prayer banner in a public school was indeed in violation and must immediately be removed. [Boston.com]

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, is either the world’s worst liar or the world’s biggest egotist.

He’s the world’s worst liar if he thinks anyone will believe he didn’t know his ladyfriends at French sex parties (aka orgies) were not being paid for their, um, services. And he’s the world’s biggest egotist if he was genuinely unaware that these women were prostitutes (say, if the women had been hired by an employee) and thought they were all just fielding cumshots as they lay in awe of his awesome sexual prowess.

Today in Bitch, Please news: a bigoted group in Texas is calling for a boycott of scrumptious Girl Scout cookies after a Denver, Colorado, troop has allowed a seven-year-0ld boy who identifies as a girl to join them. The diarrhea-icing on this crap-cake is that a 14-year-old Girl Scout in California has also uploaded a video to YouTube railing against Girl Scouts USA for their treachery. “Girl Scouts describes itself as an all-girl experience,” says the girl, identified only as Taylor, who is in a group called Honest Girl Scouts. “With that label, families trust that the girls will be in an environment that is not only nurturing and sensitive to girls’ needs, but also safe for girls.” Translation: a seven-year-old transgender child is a threat. Oh, you know those dangerous queers! Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Egyptian Woman Fights “Virginity Testing” — Er, Rape — By Police

  • While protesting at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Samira Ibrahim was grabbed by Egyptian soldiers, stripped, electrically prodded, and sexually assaulted, which they told her was a “virginity test.” She is just one of many women who have been sexually assaulted after being detained by soldiers. Samira, age 25, and her father have filed a court case against the government, which has led to a ban against so-called “virginity tests.” On Sunday, a court will hear evidence against a soldier who ordered the sexual assaults.  [New York Times, The National AE]
  • New Hampshire’s state House of Representatives has approved a “fetal homicide” bill allowing criminal charges against a person who causes the violent death of a fetus. Advocates for legal abortion say such bills are a sneaky way to conceptualize a fetus as a “person” who can be “murdered,” thus undermining abortion rights. But supporters of such bills say it allows the perpetrator to be doubly punished for hurting or killing a pregnant woman. [Union Leader]

When I heard yesterday that New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie made a blowjob joke while campaigning for Mitt Romney, I thought it just sounded, at worst, crude. (And embarrassing for Romney’s squeaky-clean Mormon image, although that’s another story.)  Christie was rallying for Romney at a campaign stop in Exeter, New Hampshire, when some women started chanting about jobs going down. After a few distracting chants, Christie says, “You know, something may go down tonight but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.”  Keep reading »

“Mrs. YoMama” actually won’t be catching on as a new nickname for Michelle Obama, a Kansas politician has found after an awkward email forwarding incident. KS House Speaker Mike O’Neal forwarded an email to fellow Republicans which said, “I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense or, course,” and depicted the First Lady next to the Grinch. Comparisons to a Dr. Seuss character? Oh, burn! You Kansans play rough! The pol has apologized for the vaguely racist forward, saying he didn’t actually read the body of the email he forwarded and just thought the picture of the Grinch and the First Lady was incisive social commentary he simply had to share with the world. (No, he didn’t really say that last part.) In any case, between this and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (W-WI), who was overheard in a D.C. airport saying Michelle Obama had a “large posterior,” I am sure she is having a very lovely Christmas vacation indeed. [Kansas.com]
