    20,000 lesbians in the desert: welcome to the Dinah, a world without men For five days in Palm Springs, Arwa Mahdawi entered an alternate reality where gay women celebrate each other with pool parties, dancing and debauchery Every year at the end of March, 20,000 lesbians from around the world fly into the Californian desert for five days of debauchery, and I’m one of them. It’s my second time at the Dinah, also known as the largest girl festival in the world. I’m staying at the Hilton in Palm Springs, which is hosting the famous Dinah pool parties, and the...

    Cairo ( – Egyptian authorities moved quickly to shut down a social media-driven “free hugs” day planned in a Red Sea resort town on Thursday, promising to arrest anyone involved. The anonymous initiators of the idea called for an Egyptian version of “Free Hugs” campaigns popular in various parts of the world. “We’d like to be like the outside world, having freedom to do what we want without interference from others,” they said in an online posting. But some residents of Hurghada, a resort town of 260,000 about 280 miles south-east of Cairo, opposed the idea, saying it went against...

    Defense lawyers for 26 men arrested in a televised raid by police looking for gays at an Egyptian bathhouse criticized the prosecution’s case Sunday, saying it is based on a faulty investigation and only one police officer’s testimony. The raid was part of an ongoing crackdown on gays in Egypt, described by activists as the worst in more than a decade. While consensual gay and lesbian relationships are not specifically outlawed in Egypt, there is a societal taboo against same-sex couples. A private TV station’s crew filmed the men’s arrest, saying it tipped off police to a bathhouse “hosting men...

    Santa Claus came early to San Francisco this year, but he forgot his long pants. As did quite a few of the hundreds of other Santas, and several of their helpers, who gathered by the Christmas tree in Union Square on Saturday. The Santas were kicking off the start of this year's SantaCon, a worldwide event that features a daylong bar crawl that sends many of its participants to the naughty list. The jingling bells, holiday-colored sequins, mistletoe and fake, cottony beards met in Union Square before heading off to the bars in various other neighborhoods throughout the city. Many...

    Barack Obama is offering us a Latin-American future. Unless things change, the man (or woman) elected in 2012 will be the last American president to preside over the world’s leading economy. If things get really bad, he will find himself presiding over the early stages of American collapse. Not “decline” but “collapse.” “Decline” is what happens when you’re Britain in the 1940s, and you cede global dominance to a major ally that shares your language, legal system, cultural inheritance, and broad geopolitical objectives. That deal isn’t on offer this time round. ... In the real world, debt ceilings are determined...

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against these people, just not very accepting of their behind closed doors lifestyle. As a straight white, conservative, Christian male I feel I would be horribly out of place cheering on people with pierced nipples in tights with visible outlines of "packages."

Star Wars, obviously an American icon and children's favorite, was interrupted every 8 minutes or so, to sell female self pleasure devices, i.e., vibrators. When they were not selling vibrators, they were selling some kind of lubricated condom guaranteeing his and her fantastic pleasure. Now keep in mind this is in the morning, before noon, on Christmas morning during Star Wars. Who is more...

His writing is interesting, entertaining, action-packed, and even thought provoking. The problem is that his stories are laced with very graphic sex and sexual themes. Call me a prude, but I don’t want to pollute my mind with that stuff. There is a time and place for sexuality; in a book for cheap entertainment is not the time or place. Ringo has right-leaning politics, which is nice change in a best-selling author...

    New finds from an archaeological site near Mexico City support certain written and pictorial evidence concerning Aztec human sacrifice that historians previously doubted because the accounts seemed too exaggerated to be true. The discovery adds to the growing collection of evidence supporting human sacrifice and cannibalism among the founders of the Mexican empire. It also suggests that researchers might now be able to verify some 16th century Spanish accounts on the subject. The Spanish and the Aztecs documented at least four observations of cannibalism in the 16th and 17th centuries. Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés (1485-1547), whose men conquered the Aztecs...

    A hundred Hindu fundamentalists have attacked and vandalized cinemas in several Indian towns, tearing down posters of the recently released film Girlfriend. The film deals with lesbianism and related themes. The fundamentalists see this as an affront to Indian culture. The most censorious critics, however, have been India’s gay and lesbian activists. They say the film is a 'homophobic, hetero-patriarchal' portrayal of lesbianism in India. They charge director Karan Razdan of creating a "conscious, articulated homophobia" for mass consumption. Girlfriend is a candyfloss drama about two close women friends who sleep in the same bed and share—explicitly, on screen—a...

I'm assuming, of course, that consistant conservatives (please shut-up libertarians, this question is not for you, OK?) will fight it, hopefully with a constitutional ammendment. There is however, a lot of doubt that such an ammendment will ever pass, and even if it does, it will take several years. Surely other states...

A call to Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's office was not immediately returned. West, elected on the Green Party ticket last year in this village 75 miles north of New York City, joined...

CU Boulder is saturated with diversity chatter; it has its full complement of diversiphile administrators; and the campus culture has elevated the ideal of "diversity" into a principle that trumps everything else: intellectual freedom, fairness in distribution of financial aid, and a cogent curriculum. In other words, Boulder was a good place to bring my message that "diversity" is really a doctrine that divides and stultifies. But the timing wasn't great: The football scandal that was about to engulf CU Boulder had just broken. The...

Two judges already are considering challenges from conservative groups seeking to halt the marriage spree that began last Thursday. The city's lawsuit asks that those cases be consolidated into one case. The city is asking Superior Court Judge James Warren to declare unconstitutional two sections of the California Family...

"I have watched carefully what's happening in San Francisco, where licenses were being issued, even though the law states otherwise," Bush said.

    Legalization of same-sex marriage would be a seismic event across this culture. Nothing would ever be the same. Every young child asks his parents, "Can boys [or girls] get married to each other"? If the answer changes from "no" to "yes," homosexuality would have then achieved equal status with heterosexual conduct and marriage. This equivalence would be taught in schools, observed in the workplace and eventually imposed even on churches. If the answer becomes "yes" there will doubtless be a dramatic increase in the incidence of homosexuality. Sexual arousal is a mystical thing, subject to conditioning. How else can one...

And as if adding an exclamation point, he also announced weekend hours for today, Sunday and the Monday holiday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., no appointment necessary....
