Page Price and Carolyn Compton are a pair of moms living in Texas. They have been together for three years and are raising two children that Compton had with her ex-husband. But the couple may be forced by a court to move apart due to a “morality clause” in Compton’s custody agreement with her ex that said no sexytimes overnight guests could sleep at the home — and the longtime, cohabitating couple are not legally allowed to marry by Texas law.

Three Chicago teenagers are facing sexual assault charges after they allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint and posted a video of that attack on Facebook.
In December, two 16-year-old boys and one 15-year-old boy brought the girl to one of their homes and allegedly took turns assaulting her, including sodomizing her. One of the young men had a gun in his pocket during some of the assaults and another held the gun during the rape. All of the rapes were caught on film and all three boys are visible in the videos, flashing gang signs. Keep reading »
An 18-year-old Florida high school senior has been expelled from school and is facing charges of “lewd and lascivious battery” for her consensual same-sex relationship with a 15-year-old from her basketball team.
Kaitlyn Hunt, formerly a cheerleader, choir singer and basketball player at Sabastian River High School, met the unnamed teen at school when Hunt was 17. They began dating after Kaitlyn turned 18, which, according to Hunt’s mother, Kelly Hunt Smith, prompted the girl’s parents to call police about the age discrepancy in their relationship. But it isn’t statutory rape the parents are worried about — it is homosexuality. Smith wrote on a Facebook page that the girls’ parents believe Kaitlyn Hunt “turned” their child gay, yet “Kaitlyn’s girlfriend denies that Kaitlyn ever pressured her and is adamant that their relationship is entirely consensual, but her parents are out to destroy Kaitlyn’s life.” Keep reading »
Ms. magazine is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, feminist magazines in America. The mag has occasionally featured celebrities on the cover; Wonder Woman was its very first cover girl, while other cover stars include Meryl Streep, Cher, Cecily Tyson, Ani DiFranco and Pam Grier.
But the mag’s latest cover girl, Beyoncé, is causing controversy for all kinds of reasons. Keep reading »
This weekend, Internet right-wing radio host Pete Santilli said he wants to shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina and watch her die. Oh, and he called her a “C U Next Today,” although that’s the least of it, really.
Here are Santilli’s batshit crazy comments about how the former Secretary of State is allegedly involved in drug trafficking in Arkansas (?) and the death of U.S. troops (emphasis mine):
Miss Hillary Clinton needs to be convicted, she needs to be tried, convicted and shot in the vagina. I wanna pull the trigger. That ‘C U Next Tuesday’ has killed human beings that are in our ranks of our service. I want to shoot her right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away. I want her to feel the pain and I want to look her in the eyes and I want to say, on behalf of all Americans that you’ve killed, on behalf of the Navy SEALS, the families of Navy SEAL Team Six who were involved in the fake hunt down of this Obama, Obama bin Laden thing. That whole fake scenario, because these Navy SEALS know the truth, they killed them all. On behalf of all of those people, I’m supporting our troops by saying we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina. Keep reading »
Last week, I wrote about how bummed I was that the heroine of Disney’s “Brave” is undergoing a makeover before she becomes an official Disney Princess. Her unruly hair is tamed, her figure is slimmed and the Scottish Princess is a much sexier version of the character millions grew to love.
I was only one voice in the outrage over this sex-ing up. Writer and co-director of “Brave,” Brenda Chapman, who was the first woman to win an Academy Award for this animated feature film, wrote the Marin Independent Journal in an email:
“Merida was created to break that mold — to give young girls a better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model, something of substance, not just a pretty face that waits around for romance … They have been handed an opportunity on a silver platter to give their consumers something of more substance and quality — THAT WILL STILL SELL — and they have a total disregard for it in the name of their narrow minded view of what will make money.”
Change.org brought the issue to my attention and garnered the signatures of at least 200,000 people. When looking at Merida’s swank new Disney Princess page, which uses the original Disney-Pixar animated character, it looked as if the outraged public had won.
Alas! Not quite true … Keep reading »
A school district in Michigan has banned two pregnant teen girls from showing their bellies in the high school yearbook, claiming it goes against the school district’s abstinence-only sex ed policy. “It’s our feeling … that (the photos) could very well be a contrary message to (the state policy),” White Could Public Schools Superintendent Barry Seabrook said. “We’re not saying they can’t have their photos in the yearbook.” But they do have to reshoot waist-up photos in the yearbook if they want to be included.

A 28-year-old man gave the abortion pill to his six-weeks-pregnant girlfriend without her knowledge, causing her to have an abortion. John Andrew Welden has been charged with first degree murder and product tampering.
His girlfriend, Remee Lee, became pregnancy in February and was “elated” about it, according to the AP. But Welden didn’t want her to have a baby, so he gave her Cytotec — a pill taken in conjunction with mifepristone as part of the abortion pill (also called a medical abortion) — leading her to believe she was taking the antibiotic Amoxicillan. The girlfriend had visited Welden’s father, an OB/GYN, and Welden lied to her and said that his dad had warned him that she had an infection. Then he forged his dad’s signature on a prescription for Cytotec (AKA Misoprostal) and gave it to Lee with a label reading “Amoxicillan.” Trusting her boyfriend was telling her the truth, Lee eventually got abdominal cramps and began bleeding and went to the hospital, only to be told she had been given the abortion pill without her knowledge.
