Horrible Person Drowns Puppy In Airport Toilet So She Can Board A Flight

Puppy

When Cynthia Anderson of Edgewater, Florida tried to board a plane at a Nebraska airport last week with three uncaged puppies and two older dogs, she was denied boarding. Not only were the two-week-old puppies too young to fly (dogs must be eight weeks old), they were not properly kenneled. The following day, the 56-year-old attempted to board again, this time with just the two older dogs and one puppy she’d tried to hide in a carry-on bag. Anderson’s parents were in Nebraska and had taken in the other two puppies — it’s unclear why the parents weren’t given all three, which could have saved the carry-on puppy from his or her awful fate. When Anderson was denied boarding yet again (presumably because the hidden dog was discovered), she was seen entering an airport bathroom where she proceeded to drown the tiny Doberman. Yes, you read that correctly, she DROWNED HER TWO-WEEK-OLD PUPPY! Keep reading »

This Month In Boobs: An Extremely Resourceful Woman Used Her Breast Milk To Rob A Pharmacy

A woman in Germany robbed a pharmacy by squirting breast milk into the cashier’s eye, taking cash from the till, and running off.

Again: A woman in Germany robbed a pharmacy by squirting breast milk into the cashier’s eye, taking cash from the till, and running off.

This is obviously the best boob-related news item in recent history, beating out even Tri-Boob. There’s so much to love about it — I mean, just picture in your head being at Walgreens. You’re waiting in line to pick up your prescription. The woman ahead of you is ostensibly buying a breast pump. You happen to glance up from your phone just as the woman takes her boob out of her shirt, aims it at the cashier, and squeezes breast milk into his or her face. Boob still out, she grabs $100 (it was Euros, obviously, but work with me here) from the cash register, then bolts, resettling her boob into her shirt as she runs out the door. She leaves the breast pump on the counter. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: It’s Not Offensive To Suggest That People Help Protect Themselves From Crime

The University of Wisconsin Madison Police Department posted an article this week about safety tips on campus and, of course, people are manufacturing reasons to get mad about it.

I really do mean manufacturing. These are really simple and effective safety tips that are not aimed specifically at women or the issue of campus rape. The only offensive thing about the article was the original title, “Shedding the Victim Persona: Staying Safe On Campus.” Once it was brought to the UWPD’s attention that “victim persona” unduly puts blame on victims for the crimes committed against them, they changed the title (albeit not the URL) to “Tools You Can Use: Staying Safe On Campus.” Voilà. They did their part to correct bad language. When contacted about the article, they stood by it as useful information for everyone. Keep reading »

A woman in Flint, Michigan demonstrated that having a baby in the womb makes you superhuman: After getting her purse snatched in a Kroger parking lot, the woman, who was nine months pregnant, ran down the thief, who proceeded to push her over (BASTARD!).  I say was pregnant because later that day she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. All in a day’s work, amirite, ladies? Two of her family members stopped the purse-snatcher and held him until police arrived. Craziness — but hey, silver lining is that that baby was born into a boss, loyal family. [Huffington Post] [Image: City of Flint Police Department]

The Soapbox: We Need To Talk About Criminalizing Pregnancy

SB criminalizing pregnancy

A new Tennessee law makes it legal to charge a woman with child abuse and assault if she takes illegal narcotic substances while pregnant. The first woman who was arrested under this new law was a 26-year old woman whose baby girl tested positive for methamphetamines after being born. The woman was reportedly arrested on her way out of the hospital. Although she was later directed to a rehab, this new law may set a terrifying precedent to all pregnant women.

Laws like this are disguised at protecting babies, but in fact just feed the prison pipeline and deter pregnant women from seeking healthcare.  If we really want to uplift the status of women, then community resources and further education better serve this, rather than the cycle of incarceration for one nonviolent act after another.

To protect and serve, huh? Oklahoma City police arrested fellow cop Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, yesterday for rape and sexual battery against seven Black women.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty said that an investigation by the sex crimes unit found Holtzclaw assaulted the women while on-duty between February and June of this year, according to KOCO news. A three-year veteran of the force, Holtzclaw stopped women while they were walking in their neighborhoods or during traffic stops; he then searched and threatened them. He forced some of the women to perform oral sex on him, while others were forced to fondle themselves or expose themselves. One victim was raped.

“We kind of anticipate there may be more victims out there because this goes back to February,” said Oklahoma City District Attorney David Prater, as quoted by Michigan Live. Authorities are urging any other potential victims of Holtzclaw to come forward. Keep reading »
