Young people aren't having safe sex

Posted By on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 1:56 PM

So, you don't mind putting your life on the line for an orgasm, young lovers?

A new study says young people in the United States and Europe are not using condoms when they have sex.

Jennifer Woodside of the International Planned Parenthood Federation said: "What the results show is that too many young people either lack good knowledge about sexual health, do not feel empowered enough to ask for contraception or have not learned the skills to negotiate contraceptive use with their partners to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies or STIs (sexually transmitted infections)."

This isn't JUST scary, it is dangerous!

The number of young people having unprotected sex in the West has risen sharply over the past two years, a survey said Monday, with health professionals concerned the safe sex message is falling on deaf ears.

The study by the Parenthood Foundation showed particularly sharp increases among sexually active teenagers in the United States and in European countries such as France who were failing to use contraception with a new partner.

In the United States, the percentage rose from 38 percent in 2009 to 53 percent now, while France saw an increase from 19 percent to 40 percent.

The survey to mark World Contraception Day also discovered that Thailand is a particular cause for concern because as many of 62 percent of young Thais have had unprotected sex with a new partner.

Another case of the double standard in sex offender cases

Posted By on Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 10:37 AM

A 16-year-old girl flaunts her body in front of the 35-year-old father of her friend. She teases him with sexual innuendos, advances and tells him, "I will show you things you've never seen" and "you know you want it."

The father logs on to the Internet, looking for the age of consent, and he finds a link that says it's 16. The next time the girl makes a sexual advance on him, he boldly says, "If you want to have sex with me, you are going to have to be a woman about it." Then they have sex twice, because he figures once the deed is done, she will leave him alone.

Then people find out that the 35-year-old man had sex with the 16-year-old girl, and he finds out the age of consent is 17, not 16, as the link said.

How much time do you think he'd get in jail? Do you think there would even be a deal offered to this father, who was friends with the girl and her parents on social media?

Let me answer that for you: Hell no.

Kissing a girl on a plane can get you kicked off if you fly Southwest

Posted By on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 8:43 AM

If you're familiar with the Showtime show The L-Word, then you remember outspoken character Alice. The actress who played Alice, Leisha Hailey, found herself in a real-life episode that would make for great TV.

A lesbian actress who starred in "The L-Word" says she kissed a girl — and got escorted off of a Southwest Airlines flight for doing it.

Leisha Hailey took to Twitter on Monday to call for a boycott of the carrier after a flight attendant told them other passengers had complained after witnessing the affection.

Her first tweet said: "I have been discriminated against." She later added, "Since when is showing affection to someone you love illegal?"

Southwest Airlines Co. responded on its website that Hailey was approached "based solely on behavior and not gender." The airline's four-sentence response said passengers were characterizing the behavior as excessive.

A discussion followed on the flight, and the airline said it "escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground."

Stop me if this story sounds familiar. Here in Charlotte, a local bar, Dixie's Tavern, had a similar situation happen in January.

Tracy Thomas said she and her friend Kelly Johnson created the page after visiting Dixie's Tavern on Seventh Street in uptown Charlotte on Dec. 17 about dinnertime. She says they grew upset after about 20 minutes passed and no waiter came to their table, although waiters were serving tables nearby.

When they finally got to put in their drink order, Thomas said, another 10 minutes passed before it came so they decided to leave. She said a member of the staff asked if they were going to pay for the drinks and they said no.

They said as they walked out that the staffer said, "Good, we don't want to serve lesbians here anyway," followed by cuss words and other degrading comments.

Dixie's apologized after a Facebook page popped up calling for a boycott of the bar.

Will Southwest, the official airline of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, offer an apology in order to keep this designation?

Or, was the airline within its rights to ask the couple to stop the PDA?

Domestic violence awareness month

Posted By on Mon, Sep 26, 2011 at 9:56 AM

domestic-violence-awareness.gif

Is there a way to protect victims of domestic violence in Charlotte? Headlines scream of shootings, beatings and killings of people in intimate relationships seemingly every week.

The latest case happened over the weekend in Davidson.

Just after 2 a.m. Saturday, Davidson police responded to a report of a shooting at a home on Callaway Hills Lane. When officers arrived, they found a man and woman in the front yard, both with gunshot wounds.

Witnesses told police that Jeremy Allen Hester, 31, drove to the home of his ex-wife, Erin Marie Cobb, 28, and they began arguing inside. Moments after the pair walked outside, multiple gunshots were fired, witnesses told police.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, who are investigating the shooting, said that evidence gathered at the scene suggests Hester shot his ex-wife in the neck and then shot himself in the head. Police called the incident a "domestic violence-related shooting."

Hester is a former Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer, sort of underscoring the fact that domestic violence can affect anyone, despite the person's profession.

Hester and Cobb were still in the hospital as of Monday.

This year, in the Charlotte area, there have been five domestic violence related homicides.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the Mecklenburg County Women's Commission has planned several events in the city:
