John Arthur was diagnosed with terminal Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and is currently in hospice care. He’s been in a loving 20-year relationship with his boyfriend Jim Obergefell, and just weeks ago, he and Arthur flew to Maryland to be legally wed on the tarmac. Arthur is now so sick that he can’t even get up from his hospital bed.

The couple has now returned to Ohio, where they are trying to make the most of their last days together, and have one final wish. Arthur would like Obergefell to be acknowledged on his death certificate as his “surviving spouse.” Why is this so important, besides the obvious unadultered fact that two married people should be acknowledged in the eyes of the law? Because Arthur would like to ensure that Obergefell can someday be buried in his family plot next to him.  Thanks to a specific family directive, without this express acknowledgement, a cemetery will not honor the request.

After finding flirtatious texts that her boyfriend sent to another woman, Shena Moore took the all too familiar route of blaming the other woman and not her boyfriend for the transgression. Although this reaction is typical, Shena’s revenge plan, thankfully, is not. In something described by the victim Brittany Rager as “like being in a ‘Saw’ movie,” the alleged attack involved Shena; her father, Gerald Moore; her boyfriend, John Gulley (yeah, the one who sent the texts in the first place); and a pair of gardening shears.

The kicker? The two women have been friends since childhood and are so close that Brittany Rager referred to Shena’s father as “dad,” too. Keep reading »

  • A finance committee in Ohio’s House of Representatives voted on a budget amendment to restrict sex educators from mentioning “gateway” sexual behavior — i.e., anything “non-abstinence” like fingering and groping. Y’all know that abstinence-only sex ed doesn’t actually work, right? [Innovation Ohio, My Fox 28 Columbus]

Wake up and smell the vagina, University of Cincinnatti. On Thursday, two student groups displayed “Re-envisioning The Female Body,” a temporary art show of 12 billboard-sized photographs of vulvas, on the campus commons. A student photographer photographed the images [NSFW], which are displayed on campus alongside quotes about sexuality, health, and reproductive choice. The show followed a panel discussion on campus from a local Planned Parenthood.

Not surprisingly, the campus Students For Life group — known for posting explicit, bloody photographs on campus which purport to be of aborted fetuses — are steamed. Keep reading »

Two weeks ago, The New York Times ran an enormous article about a rape case in Steubenville, Ohio, where members of the football team participated in the rape of a drunk girl in August. Images and videos captured the night, when a 15-year-old drunk girl was carried to multiple parties, raped and peed upon. Two 16-year-old boys were arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. Many other students — including Steubenville football players — were said to have participated and are supposedly being coddled by police and their community. You can read the full, difficult, sordid story from the Times here.

Now, Internet vigilante groups — hactivists — have taken over the football team’s website and are threatening to make many of those involved pay by releasing private info online. Keep reading »
