First, N.C. wanted to stop folks from having babies ... now the state wants you to keep them

Posted By on Thu, Jun 30, 2011 at 10:43 AM


Talk about your bipolar government. Earlier this month, women who'd been sterilized by the state of North Carolina told their horrifying stories to a committee about how painful life is not being able to give birth because lawmakers/social workers/all around assholes thought they weren't good enough.  Now, fast forward 30 years and look at the N.C.'s GOP controlled General Assembly try to infringe on reproductive rights again.

This time, lawmakers wanted to make women who were considering abortion take extra steps before going ahead with the procedure. (The bill was recently vetoed by Bev Perdue.)

The legislation also required medical personnel to present to patients an ultrasound image of the fetus along with information about possible risks.

"This bill is a dangerous intrusion into the confidential relationship that exists between women and their doctors," the Democratic governor said in a statement.

"The bill contains provisions that are the most extreme in the nation in terms of interfering with that relationship."

Barbara Holt, president of North Carolina Right to Life, said the proposed law would not be an intrusion into the doctor-patient relationship because most women who undergo abortion usually have no relationship with the doctor who performs the procedure.

"Most women who have abortions say they have never seen the doctor prior to the abortion and never see the doctor after," Holt told Reuters. "This is about women going to facilities that deal only in abortions."

Perdue said the bill is a case of legislators imposing their ideology on a woman's private consultations with her doctor.

Make up your mind, N.C. — do you want more babies or not?

North Carolina is one of a number of states with Republican majorities seeking restrictions on abortion this year.

What's interesting and sad about the abortion debate is that it's mostly men leading the charge, telling women what they should and should not do with their bodies. The decision to have an abortion isn't something that women enter into lightly.  The myth of the woman who uses abortion as birth control is outdated and wrong.

Why doesn't the government do anything about the deadbeat fathers who produce kids, then leave the state on the hook to pay for them? Here's something the General Assembly should consider: If a man has multiple children that are receiving assistance from the state, he should be subjected to a vasectomy.

I bet that will never happen.

It came from So sure this is not approved by the NFL ...

Posted By on Fri, Jun 24, 2011 at 3:11 PM

In today's veiled prostitution ad, we have Charlotte's Panther Entertainment. The Queen City is home to the NFL's Carolina Panthers — but this stripper/escort has NOTHING to do with that. Just the names are similar.










The pictures accompanying the ad surely don't look that entertaining.


Check out the furry toilet seat cover.

Did we need a study for this? Women fake orgasms because they're tired

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 3:51 PM

Everyone knows the iconic scene from When Harry Met Sally where she's sitting at the table and she shows Harry how women pretend they're having an orgasm.

Well, somebody actually paid a scientist to study why women fake it.

The results are just what you would expect.

Women's fake screams of ecstasy in bed may have less to do with trying to protect the sensitive egos of their partners, and more to do with a gal's own personal insecurities and fear of intimacy, new research suggests.

Approximately 60 percent of women have faked an orgasm during intercourse or oral sex, according to Erin Cooper of Temple University, who has been studying these women to figure out why.

"This is something that we talk about happening in popular culture, in the movies and magazines," Cooper told LiveScience. "We know that this is pretty prevalent in our culture, but we don't know much about it from a scientific standpoint. That to me is a real catastrophe."

Here's the real catastrophe: Women suffer from breast cancer, cervical cancer, reproductive health problems — you know, real issues — that scientists could be studying more rather than wasting time and money on something that can be answered with a simple survey. As in, creating it with Survey Monkey and calling it a day.

Did someone really need to be paid to get these results?

Cooper surveyed 366 females ages 18 to 32 who had indicated they endorse faking orgasms, about their sexual habits, their reasons for faking it during a past relationship and their feelings about intimacy.

Many of these women said they faked it due to their own fear of intimacy; they also reported faking orgasm because they felt insecure about their sexual functioning, or because they want to get it over with.

I'm faking that I give a damn about this study.

Still no leaks from the alleged John Edwards sex tape ... disappointing

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 4:20 PM


John Edwards's fall from grace still isn't complete. You know why? Because the alleged contents of the sex tape still haven't been leaked.

Today, Edwards's criminal case was delayed until July.

Judge Carlton Tilley said he wants an agreement first on which documents will be released by prosecutors to defense lawyers and when that will happen before even thinking about scheduling a trial date.

"I encourage you to release everything," Tilley told prosecutors. "Let's get busy. Let's start turning stuff over."

Edwards accompanied his lawyers to the hearing, but apart from greeting reporters outside the building, he didn't speak or respond to questions about the case. One of his lawyers, James Cooney, also declined to comment.

Edwards pleaded not guilty this month to six felony charges related to money that went to hide Rielle Hunter, a videographer who followed his 2008 presidential campaign and later became his mistress and the mother of his child. Federal prosecutors say Edwards accepted contributions far above the legal limit in order to hide his affair, and helped in trying to cover up the payments by filing false campaign finance reports.

It's not clear exactly what the thousands of documents contain, and Edwards' lawyers said they couldn't proceed until they knew what prosecutors will be using.

So, what about the sex tape? Because honestly, that's what this is really about. But he won't have to answer those questions until the criminal charges are resolved. Boo.

Herpes rumor leads to shooting deaths in Durham

Posted By on Thu, Jun 16, 2011 at 4:29 PM

About 17 percent of American adults have the herpes virus, but a rumor about the STD lead to the shooting of four people in Durham.

Brinton Marcell Millsap apparently shot three women and himself Friday night because of a rumor he had been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease."He did think that was the case, but it was a lie," said Anita D. Baker, the mother of one of the slain women, Alexandria J. Baker Pierce.

Pierce, 23, a rising senior at UNC Greensboro, made an impromptu trip to Durham on Friday to tell Millsap in person that the report that she had given him a disease was not true, Baker said. She left Greensboro in her green Honda Accord about 9 p.m. and picked up her friends, Amesha Alia Page-Smith, 24, and Adrianne Celeste Stevens, 22, both of Durham.

The seeds for the tragedy were planted on June 6,  according to one of the victim's best friends.

On June 6, Page-Smith was talking on the phone to her best friend, Adriene Williams, about the previous weekend when someone kept beeping in, Williams said.

Williams, who grew up in Durham but now lives in Tennessee, talked to Page-Smith often, she said..

The previous weekend Page-Smith, Pierce and Stevens had gone to a cookout together, Williams said. Either during or after the cookout, Pierce and Millsap had sex, Williams said.

As they spoke on the phone June 6, Page-Smith said Millsap and his friend kept calling her phone saying they had heard Pierce had herpes, Williams said.

"Brinton said if he goes to the doctor and his test results come back positive, he was going to kill A.J. (Pierce),'" Williams said, recounting her telephone conversation.

"At that time me and Amesha were just joking about it," Williams said. "And I am just like, 'It is not that serious. I mean it is not HIV.'"

It's not clear if Millsap had any reason, besides the rumor, to suspect he might have herpes. A blood test takes eight to 12 weeks (after becoming infected) and lupus can cause false positive readings, said Dr. Peter Leone, an infectious disease specialist at the UNC School of Medicine.

This tragedy highlights the importance of talking seriously about STDs before having sex and being honest about it.
