    State-subsidized sex-change operations By Dan Springer Published July 09, 2015 Sex-changes for 15-year-olds without parental consent? The list of things 15-year-olds are not legally allowed to do in Oregon is long: Drive, smoke, donate blood, get a tattoo -- even go to a tanning bed. But, under a first-in-the-nation policy quietly enacted in January that many parents are only now finding out about, 15-year-olds are now allowed to get a sex-change operation. Many residents are stunned to learn they can do it without parental notification -- and the state will even pay for it through its Medicaid program, the Oregon...

    This week, San Francisco Magazine published an anthropological incursion by Diana Kapp into the lifestyles of the most privileged teens in the nation in order to ask: Why are the kids of Palo Alto killing themselves? A cluster of teen suicides at Palo Alto high schools in 2010 was followed this year by another four suicide victims from the wealthy and achievement-blessed Henry M. Gunn High School. Fifty-two of its 1,900 students were treated for suicide ideation this past school year. By Kapp’s account, the suicidal cases are only the tip of a very large iceberg of kids who,...

    Legal eagle Alan Dershowitz is not taking the accusation that he bedded a teenage sex slave lying down. The former Harvard Law School professor has filed a sworn statement in Miami federal court "to protect his reputation" against what he calls "outrageously false" and "contemptible" allegations. Dershowitz also vowed to file disciplinary complaints against the attorneys representing his accuser, who has been identified as 30-year-old Virginia Roberts. But before Dershowitz could, the lawyers — Paul Cassell and Bradley Edwards — sued him for defamation.

Kelly fired a single round from a small-caliber handgun at the vest, but just missed.

    BERLIN – Two French 15-yearolds have left France to join Islamist militants in the fight against Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Toulouse prosecutor and a father of one of the boys said on Friday. “I’ve informed the Paris anti-terrorist prosecutor because the two boys made their intention clear that they would travel to Syria via Turkey,” prosecutor Michel Valet told Reuters. Emmanuel Navon, director of the communications and political science department at Jerusalem Orthodox College, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that “the French government has been trying to hide the phenomenon [of jihadism] in France and are aware [of...

The TV host calls out Caiden Cowger, a 14-year-old with his own internet radio show. He then refers back to fellow teen Jonathan Krohn’s book “Defining Conservatism”.

    Nutritionists have discovered that a diet of pizza, sweets, and sugary drinks is taking a severe toll on the health of young women which is having implications as they get older. A study has concluded that teenage girls are shunning fruit, vegetables and oily fish, leading to almost half of teenage girls being dangerously low in key nutrients, such as iron, magnesium and selenium. Iron, found in products such as red meat and green vegetables is vital for the production of healthy red blood cells and helps to keep the brain healthy. Magnesium from shellfish helps keep bones strong while...

    A quarter of teenagers were jobless in March, representing a surprising increase from February, even as the unemployment rate for the rest of the population decreased. AP This figure may only get worse if budget-strapped states raise the minimum wage, and it could also be a sign of greater structural damage underlying our economy, analysts said. The unemployment rate for 16- to 19-year olds jumped back up to 24.5 percent in March, up from 23.9 percent the prior month, according to the latest jobs data from the Labor Department. The total unemployment rate fell to 8.8 percent from 8.9 percent....

    The woman who authorities say killed her teenage daughter and son because she was fed up with them talking back and being mouthy will not appear in court Saturday because she's being treated at a hospital for an unknown condition. Authorities say Julie Powers Schenecker was taken to Tampa General Hospital shortly after midnight Saturday to be treated for a medical condition that existed before she was taken to jail. Hillsborough Sheriff's deputies — who oversee jail inmates — said they could not reveal Schenecker's medical condition, citing health care privacy laws. An arrest affidavit said Schenecker shot her son...

As in, one should PBYP before you decide you're DTF*. In case you have neither the time nor the patience to watch, this initial exchange pretty much sums up the level of discourse:The Situation: Excuse me miss, but have you ever had a situation with the official Situation? Bristol Palin: Excuse me, Sitch? The Situation: Oh snap! B. Palin!

    It takes a lot more than witnessing the contents of an office go waterborne to shock Lady Gaga these days. Though that, apparently, was all it took for 15-year-old Stefani Germanotta to collapse into giggles. Old video featuring the girl who would be Gaga resurfaced this week much to the delight of fans and no doubt the chagrin of the pop star. The footage comes from episode 9, season 3 of The Sopranos, which first aired on April 22, 2001, and shows Gaga eating pizza (fairly shocking), speaking without affectation (very shocking), and—ready for this one?—wearing pants (there are no...

  • The Disappearing Teenage Worker

    Teenage workers are disappearing from the U.S. workforce. Something appears to have happened to drive them out of the workforce in large numbers. Phil Miller and Doc Palmer say that the recent mandated hikes in the minimum wage very likely has something to do with the teenagers getting disappeared, but no one in the media is willing to finger them as a promising culprit behind the workplace disappearances. Could they be right? To find out, we went straight to the source: the Bureau of Labor Statistics. What we did was to take the BLS' report on the Characteristics of Minimum...

    LONDON (AFP) - British teenagers are among the worst behaved in Europe, a study by a leading think-tank said Thursday, blaming government policy failures for high levels of fighting, binge drinking, drug taking and under-age sex. The centre-left Institute for Public Policy Research, favoured by former prime minister Tony Blair, said young Britons were left to their own devices through successive policy failures. The report -- "Freedom's Orphans: Raising Youth in a Changing World" -- was published as the government announced a new 184-million-pound (275-million-euro, 378-million-dollar) 10-year strategy for young people. It will be supplemented by cash from bank accounts...
