Genetic Sexual Attraction: True Love Or Incest?

Women Misled About Abortion

San Fransisco smacked CPCs for misleading women about abortion. Read More »

The “Woman’s Right to Know Act” sounds so innocuous, doesn’t it? Of course women have a right to know! Alas, when it comes to restricting abortion access, it’s never innocuous.

The “Woman’s Right to Know Act,” passed by a Florida House subcommittee on Tuesday, would require women to view an ultrasound of her fetus before an abortion, or sign paperwork saying she had been offered the ultrasound but refused to see it. Rape and incest victims would have to provide proof that a crime had been committed against them if they wanted to opt out. Because, you know, making some poor teen girl prove she was impregnanted by her father is so compassionate and all. Keep reading »

Texas Politicians Want Rape Victims To Hear Description Of Fetus, Get Ultrasound Before Abortion

Texas, you are rivaling South Dakota in anti-abortion suckitude: the state’s House of Representatives approved anti-abortion legislation that many would call downright cruel. A woman who is a victim of rape or incest, or one whose much-desired fetus has dangerous fetal abnormalities, would be required to get an ultrasound and listen to a description of the fetus and then wait 24 hours before an abortion. But don’t worry, ladies. These kind politicians agreed that you can look away or put on headphones during this rigamarole so you don’t have to hear a fetal heartbeat. A doctor who doesn’t perform a sonogram before giving a woman an abortion could lose his or her license.

Disgusting. Keep reading »

What To Do If You’ve Been Sexually Assaulted

We’ve written a lot about sexual assault on The Frisky this week, from the death threats faced by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s alleged victims and the weatherwoman who filed a false report, to the “Congratulations, you’ve been bad touched!” greeting card on Etsy.com and blogger Andrea Grimes’ incredibly thought-provoking essay, “Who Will Rape Me?” Heavy stuff in the days before Christmas, to be sure.

Yesterday, commenter _JSW_ made a great suggestion that The Frisky get all service journalism-y and provide information on what to do if you’ve been sexually assaulted. I’m more than happy to oblige in the hopes that we can skew our coverage towards more positivity.

I hope our readers and their loved ones will never need this (very basic) information. But given the statistics about rape, attempted rape, sexual assault and incest, it never hurts to be informed. Keep reading »

Woman Goes To Jail For Sleeping With The Teenage Son She Gave Up At Birth

Detroit’s Aimee L. Sword has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in prison for having sex with her 14-year-old son, who she gave up for adoption when he was an infant. The 36-year-old Sword was married with five other kids when she tracked down her teenage son on Facebook. And, uh, started meeting him in hotel rooms for trysts. The boy eventually brought it up to a counselor, who told the police. The prosecutor said he was “concerned for this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future.” Meanwhile Sword’s attorney told the press, “When she saw this boy, it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Aimee’s searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it. She’s going to get some counseling.” Keep reading »

This Indiana Grandmother Is Having A Baby — With Her Grandson

Look, I’m a romantic. I believe in true love as much as the next gal. But I draw the line at incest, save the sexy kind written up in my fave V.C. Andrews’ beach reads. Which is why my brain just about exploded when I read this headline: “I’m in love with my grandson and we’re having a baby.” Oh no they are not. But they are, if this story is to be believed! According to Australia’s New Idea magazine, 72-year-old Pearl Carter had a daughter, Lynette, who she gave for adoption when she was 18. Years later, Lynette had a son, Phil Bailey, now 25. After Lynette died of brain cancer, Phil decided to track down his grandmother and, um, love blossomed. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Oklahoma Pols Override Governor’s Vetoes On Scary Abortion Bills

  • The Oklahoma Legislature voted today to override two vetoes on bills restricting abortion, which Governor Brad Henry had vetoed last week. One bill requires a doctor to show a woman who wants an abortion an ultrasound and describe the development of the fetus, with no exception for rape and incest victims. The second bill protects doctors from malpractice lawsuits if they do not tell the parents that the fetus has birth defects. Gov. Henry said the first bill was an intrusion into a woman’s privacy and called the second bill immoral. Two other abortion-related bills are still working their way through OK’s legislature.

  • Did you know there are “chick cars” and “dude cars”? Automotive industry experts say accelerator and break pedals are now being made with womens’ high heels in mind and the 2010 Chevy Equinox comes with a spacious center console for a purse (although if you’re a dude, the salesman might tell you it’s for “a laptop”). A General Motors spokesman also said a back-up camera display in the rear-view mirror will be helpful for people who have trouble parallel parking, which we’re supposed to infer means women. Annoying. [Wheels.ca]

Evil Guy Rapes 5 Of His Daughters, Impregnates 3 Of Them

This New Jersey man will certainly get the Worst Father of the Century award and, hopefully, will spend the rest of his life in jail. After having apocalyptic visions, he raped five of his daughters … and impregnated three. Their babies were born at home and did not get birth certificates. When some of them died, they were buried without authorities ever knowing they existed. The father’s reign of terror lasted for more than a decade and, during that time, the girls also had to endure beatings with wooden boards and steel-toed boots and were often deprived of food.

Mackenzie Phillips Changes Her Tune About Her Relationship With Her Papa

Mackenzie Phillips recently revealed that she had an incestuous relationship with her father, Mamas & The Papas singer John Phillips. But now she’s changing her tune about the relationship. In her memoir, Phillips called the relationship with her father “consensual.” But yesterday on “The Joy Behar Show,” she decided to “reframe” the situation saying, “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a consensual relationship at this time.” Keep reading »

Is “Consensual” Incest OK?

We were pretty shocked when Mackenzie Phillips published a book revealing that she had a decade-long sexual relationship with her father, John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas. But we were even more surprised when she defended it, saying she was raped initially but, later on, the acts were “consensual.” This whole thing sparked a huge debate about Genetic Sexual Attraction, or GSA. Genetic Sexual Attraction is an emotional and physical attraction between family members. The feelings often start after the two have been separated for a long time and, upon reuniting, find there is something, er, more between them. Most think it’s totes wrong but there is a vocal minority that says GSA is just misunderstood. I’ll present both sides, then you can tell us what you think! Keep reading »
