Oh Hey, Texas: New Planned Parenthood Clinic To Open In Dallas

todays lady news
  • Planned Parenthood is opening a new abortion clinic in Dallas, Texas, that meets the state’s new laws requiring clinics to have the same standards of a “ambulatory surgical center.” It’s not exactly a secret that the TX legislature passed those requirements in order to shut down women’s health clinics and restrict abortion access. I wonder how these so-called “pro-lifers” feel now. [Dallas News]
  • A young man in rural India was accused of attempting to rape a married woman, so the woman’s husband was advised by the local village council to sexually assault the accused rapist’s 14-year-old sister in retaliation. By the local cultural norms, ruining her “purity” would get revenge on her older brother. The village leader and the rape victim’s brother are both now in jail. [CNN] Keep reading »

#JusticeForJada: 16-Year-Old Texas Girl’s Alleged Rape Goes Viral With #JadaPose

Justice For Jada

A 16-year-old girl in Houston, Texas named Jada has had her alleged rape photographed, posted on social media, and then mocked across the Internet with the tasteless hashtag #jadapose.

Jada — who has given KHOU 11 News in Texas permission to identify her first name and broadcast her face — attended a party last month at the home of a friend-of-a-friend. Jada said the teen boy hosting the party gave her a glass of punch, which she drank before passing out. She believes she was drugged.

Until she started receiving texts asking her if she was OK and seeing tweets, photos and Vines of her alleged rape posted online, Jada told KHOU that she had no idea what happened to her while she was passed out. And those images, might I remind you, could perhaps get the people sharing them busted for distributing child pornography. (KHOU blurs out the images in their broadcast posted above.) ”I had no control to say ‘no,’” Jada told the news station about what happened to her. “I didn’t tell anyone to take my clothes off and do what they did to me.”  Keep reading »

“Cold Beer And Titties”: Sexism At A Texas Boys Civics Conference

texas flag

I guess the good ol’ boys of Texas get started early.

The progressive Texas politics blog Burnt Orange Report reported on Friday that nearly 1,000 high school-aged boys gathered in early June for the annual, nonpartisan Boys State conference, where they learn firsthand about politics. The students are split into two fake parties, the Federalist Party and the Nationalist Party, and are meant to learn basic civics lessons such as how to run for office and pass legislation. Another conference for young women in Texas, called Girls State, is held separately. Sounds as wholesome and American as apple pie, yes? Keep reading »

The Texas Republican Convention recently endorsed in its platform so-called “gay reparative therapy,” widely considered to be junk science by the medical community. While speaking in San Francisco last night, Texas Governor Rick Perry, a Republican, is doubling down on statements that being gay is a “lifestyle choice” and compared being actively gay to being an alcoholic.

It’s not the most batshit crazy comparison to make, actually, but it is predicated on the batshit crazy belief that homosexuality is something a person should just, like, suppress Keep reading »

“Abortion Barbie” Posters Greet Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis In Los Angeles

"Abortion Barbie" Posters Greet Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis In Los Angeles

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis flew to Los Angeles this week for a campaign fundraiser and was welcomed with warm temperatures, the promise of In-N-Out and, oh yeah, these “Abortion Barbie” posters. Created by the “conservative street artist” Sabo and paid for by Midland, Texas, woman Kathryn Stuard, the posters feature a pregnant Barbie’s body with Davis’s head, the fetus’s body visible (yeah, I said fetus, not baby) in the doll’s stomach. “Abortion Barbie” comes with her own accessories, namely a pair of scissors for, uh, the aborting, I guess. ”It hits people with the truth,” said Stuard, 53, apparently not realizing that abortions are not and have never been performed with scissors. “The artist is very edgy … I do support (Greg) Abbott [Davis's opponent] but the campaign had nothing to do with these (posters).” Keep reading »

RIP Society: Texas Teacher Gave 15-Year-Old Student A Lap Dance For His Birthday

Birthday celebrations sure have changed since I was a kid: a middle school teacher in Texas has been arrested for performing a lap dance for her 15-year-old student on his birthday.

Felicia Smith, 42, allegedly gave a four-minute, full-contact lap dance in February to the unnamed boy in front of other students in the classroom. The boy told police that he sat in a chair next to her desk while music played, she “moved back and forth on his crotch and then touched him all over his body” and he spanked her butt several times. She also reportedly sank down to her knees and put her head between his legs. At the end, Smith allegedly told the boy, “I love you, baby. Happy birthday.” First Coast News reports that video exists of the whole incident. Keep reading »
