    Women have been warned in a Planned Parenthood Action Fund email [1] that Alaska Republican Dan Sullivan, who is running for the U.S. Senate, and three other GOPs could “affect their sex lives.”The warning came from Lena Dunham, the creator and start of the HBO series Girls. In the email Dunham urged women to remember Thom Tillis, who’s challenging Sen. Kay Hagan (D) in North Carolina, “stuck a bunch of abortion restrictions into a bill that was supposed to be about motorcycle safety.”She also wrote that Joni Ernst, a Republican from Iowa running for the Senate who made hog...

    IUDs and hormonal implants cost more, usually hundreds of dollars, because inserting them involves a medical procedure typically done in doctors' offices. But they're less expensive in the long run than over-the-counter condoms or prescription birth control pills, said Dr. Mary Ott, an adolescent medicine specialist and associate pediatrics professor at Indiana University. She is the policy statement's lead author,Teens have to remember to use pills and condoms consistently. By contrast, IUDs typically work for three to 10 years after insertion, while implants typically last three years. The new guidance was published Monday in Pediatrics. It echoes 2012 recommendations from...

    A student at Duke University started doing porn to pay for her tuition. She became a media sensation and liberals everywhere loved telling her story. She would do interviews and say things like porn is empowering and freeing. She is in a documentary coming up and now that she has been in the industry for a little bit her view of porn has dramatically shifted. The sex industry has a way of making you very cynical and very bitter, a tired-looking Weeks tells an off-camera interviewer, In a way Ive started to become kind of a bit bitter and a...

    May 28, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The cover of TIME magazine released on May 15, depicting a university pennant with the lone word Rape on it, marks a new height in public awareness (and debate) of what has come to be known as the rape culture a prevalence of male domination, incursion, and violation against the sexual dignity and bodily sovereignty of females through physical actions, verbal harassment, mass entertainment content, structural norms in the workplace, and social behavior. First coined in the 1970s, rape culture has only entered the popular progressive vocabulary in recent years, starting in feminist blogs....

    College tuition has gone up 60 percent in the last decade, but some enterprising coeds are finding financial aid in a creative way by landing a sugar daddy to the pay the bills. And students at Texas State University in San Marcos are right up there with the best of them. Dating (and we use that term loosely) site SeekingArrangement.com recently examined the fastest growing sugar baby schools in the country, and Texas State came in at No. 10. The average Texas student graduates with more than $24,000 in student debt, so the average $3,000 per month that a...

    Some defenders of Miley Cyrus' VMA performance don't understand what all the outrage is about. Justin Timberlake tweeted, "She's young. Take it easy on her." Lena Dunham worried about "slut shaming." Russell Simmons wrote "Just saw @MileyCyrus. What did I miss. She was having fun. #twerkmileytwerk." And Adam Lambert tweeted " ... Listen if it wasn't ur cup of tea -- all good but why is everyone spazzing? Hey -- she's doin something right. We all talkin." Cyrus seemed to endorse Lambert's any-attention-is-good-attention rationale. She boasted on Twitter that "Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That's more...

    Look world: Americas First Lady can out-pole-dance YOUR First Lady! In what has to be the most mind-blowing picture of what NOT to do as First Lady, we have Michelle Obama entertaining the audience. You expect some ghetto chick to do something so crass, but not the First Lady. I know the naysayers will say, Kevin, she is only being herself she should be allowed to have fun! I pay no attention to these America-hating communists, but many people do, particularly young girls. If Michelle Obama can be so crass, well dont wonder why you see young girls shaking...

    The Moderate Separatist ^ | July 18, 2012 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan
    The failure of Canadian feminist groups to condemn an Ontario Islamic Cleric for his shockingly sexist comments has drawn much criticism, and rightfully so. As pointed out by many, the same strong independent women who a few years ago organized what turned into the international protests called Slut Walk in reaction to the ill-spoken words of an Ontario police officer have chosen to ignore the latest verbal assault. Of course, this is pure hypocrisy.

    Hey ya'll come to Lansing, there'll be plenty of vaginas.This whole controversy disgusts me, but hey, it's part of the reason why I'm not a Democrat. The false narrative that the media is running with on the vagina controversy in Lansing is basically what the Democrats say it's about. According to female Democrats, women are being censored on the House floor for daring to say the word vagina. So, in order to really really get those evil male Republicans to pay, the women plan to talk about taking mirrors to view the female genitalia, how the hair feels, orgasms, and...

    John Edwards apparently didn't think too highly of his mistress. According to testimony Tuesday from Edwards' former top confidante, the ex-senator didn't give himself great odds when he doubted that he was the father of Rielle Hunter's unborn child. "He said that she was a crazy slut, and it was a one-in-three chance that it was his child," Young testified. Whether or not those were the odds, Edwards made a bad bet. After denying for months that he was the father, even after he copped to the affair, Edwards has acknowledged paternity for their daughter who is now 4 years...

    SlutWalk marched through D.C. on Saturday as one of many recent marches organized by women to raise awareness and reduce the blame put by society on victims of sexual abuse. Women and men gathered at Lafayette Square and processed down 15th Street to the Washington Monument. Some marchers woreonly in a bra, several painted Slut across their chests, others carried signs declaring My Dress is Not a Yes and Even Sluts Have a Right to Say No.
  • Benjamin Boles on walking with the sluts (Liberal Double Standards)

    I did a lot of waffling about whether to comment on Sundays SlutWalk march (April 3, 1:30 pm, at Queens Park), but not because I have any doubts about the worthiness of the cause. The provocatively named rally, initially organized after a Toronto police officer told a York University campus safety seminar that women could avoid sexual assault by not dressing like sluts, has since gathered steam in reaction to a steady stream of victim-blaming and slut-shaming by judges, other police officers and various media outlets. SlutWalk aims to reclaim the term and rob it of its pejorative connotations, but...

    South African Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba tweeted at another government official, "Let's talk about the slut walk. Now, I wanna attend as an observer. Might get lucky." A spokesman claimed he didn't understand that SlutWalk was about sexual assault awareness. An estimated 2,000 women attended the Cape Town SlutWalk Saturday, in a country that has the highest rape rate in the world.

    There will be a SlutWalk in Johnson City this evening to raise awareness of sexual assault. SlutWalks began in Toronto earlier this year to protest the notion that some rapes occur because the rapist thought the victim dressed like a slut, or provocatively snip Treece said it was important to participate in an event like SlutWalk because no one who has been sexually assaulted should ever feel any blame. I just feel like they should know its not their fault, no matter what they were doing, Treece said. No matter what you wear, it shouldnt be the victims fault.

    It was an intriguing emailed invitation: Mom, do you want to go with me to SlutWalk? Hmm. Well, over the years I have accompanied my daughter to playgrounds, petting zoos, hiking trails and nail salons. But for someone who spent years trying to keep two daughters in the equivalents of pinafores, SlutWalk sounded like a questionable mother/daughter outing. However, my older daughter, 22, had sent a link to the explanation. The SlutWalk, held Saturday in the Loop, was a response to a Toronto police constable's remark that women would be safer from sexual attack if they avoided dressing like sluts.

    Thousands of women are to take to the streets of London in revealing outfits next month as the global SlutWalk phenomenon reaches Britain. A Canadian policeman who told women to stop dressing like 'sluts' to avoid being raped sparked the worldwide protest movement that could see more than 5,000 women march through the capital. Thousands of members of SlutWalk have already marched in cities across the U.S and Canada to display anger at Pc Michael Sanguinetti's comments, made in a health and safety talk to students at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.
