  • Police arrested Erlyndon Joseph Lo, 27, of Plano, Texas, on Saturday for threatening deadly force against a Dallas abortion clinic. The day before, Lo had filed a court document at the Plano federal courthouse announcing his intention to go to the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas and “use deadly force to defend the innocent life of another human being.” His court filing sought a restraining order against law enforcement. His two charges are using interstate commerce to communicate a threat, and threatening force to intimidate and interfere with clients and employees of a reproductive health service. If convicted, Lo faces up to six years in prison. FBI agents said threatening and erratic behavior by Lo in recent months had already put him on their radar. [Dallas Morning News]

Today’s Lady News: Photographer Says Facebook Removed Her Breast Photos

  • Australian photographer Gemma Rose-Turnbull says a Facebook administrator removed two of her photographs from the site’s “Photos” section because they depicted exposed breasts. One photograph showed a baby being breastfed, while the other showed a topless middle-age woman. Turnbull also had “sexy” photographs, such as from a wet T-shirt contest, which were left up by administrators. “I’ve spent five years doing this project and it really has validated it for me that mainstream media says that young, sexualized breasts are okay and that breasts that fall outside those dimensions are not okay,” Turnbull said. “So we don’t want to see old breasts. We don’t want to see breasts being used to feed babies.” [ABC.net.au]

American Bra Sizes Keep Growing And Growing

It’s no secret that Americans are getting fatter each decade (obesity rates have doubled since 1980), but the news isn’t all bad. The upside to our bigger waistlines? Bigger bustlines to go with them! In fact, in the last ten years, the median bra size in the U.S. has grown from 36C to 36DD! And thanks to Oprah and her Bra Fit Interventions, more women than ever are getting sized and wearing the correct bra, which in this age of big boobs, means the full-figured bra business is booming (sales of bigger bras increased 7.4 percent from 2008 to 2009). The only problem is that supply has yet to keep up with demand. Says Susan Nethero, who runs a lingerie shop called Intimacy: “Full-figure bras have sold far faster and larger than average-size bras. Full-busted sales have grown by at least 10 percent over the past year, and 74 percent of my bra business is now with cup sizes larger than DD. I wish there were more. We are not getting enough new [full-figured] product.” That roar you just heard is the sound of curve-loving men (and women) everywhere cheering their hearts out. [via NYmag.com] Keep reading »

Must have a lean dancer body. MUST have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.” It’s great they are embracing a more “natural” look, but other than that, looks like same-old, same-old in the casting department. [Moviehole]

Australians Want To Ban Small-Breasted Women And Female Ejaculation In Porn

The Australian government apparently has some issues with a woman’s “down under.” The Classification Board for the country’s smut industry is working on banning porn that includes female ejaculation and/or small breasts. The censors are trying to block any websites that include or link to material that include these particular “offenders.” Customs officials are also being advised to confiscate any pornography that has instances of female ejaculation. So, I guess now would be an ideal time to look into becoming an Australian Customs Official since screening smut could be part of your job description? But this is not the most outrageous element of this new ban—what’s worse is the reasoning. Keep reading »
