Today's Lady News photo
  • Actor D.L. Hughley said some offensive shit on NPR about women, especially black women, in a recent interview. Regarding women, he criticized our ability to reason and said, “If a man can have a face only a mother can love, then women can have personalities only fathers can love.” Of black women in particular, he said they are “angry all the time” and ”I’ve never met an angrier group of people.” BRAIN. EXPLODES. Later on in the interview, he says he “respects” black women, which is so unapparent in the rest of what he says. [NPR via Naturally Moi] Keep reading »

  • Planned Parenthood in Texas filed a new lawsuit today regarding a federal appeals court decision to not reconsider a ruling that allows TX to exclude PP from its low-income women’s healthcare funding. TX is expressly excluding PP because the organization provides abortions, even though the majority of the care it provides come in the form of cancer screenings, birth control prescriptions, and other basic health care. Our Hitched columnist Andrea Grimes, who lives in Austin, TX, explains it all in depth here. [Reuters]
