  • I Can’t Talk To My Underage 18 Students On Facebook (I’m sooo upset…)


    I Can’t Talk To My Underage 18 Students On Facebook (I’m sooo upset…) If you’re so upset that you can’t talk to you own (under 18) kid on Facebook (who lives with you!!) that you actually feel the need to sue the state (Missouri)–I’d recommend you stop and think about two things: 1. Why would […]

  • Washington Highschool Students Asked to Sing Naked by Music Teacher


    A Tacoma, Washington, Community College music teacher said he was conducting a study, ”on how sexual arousal affects vocal ranges,” but for some reason thought it was okay to ask his 17-year-old student to participate. Kevin Gausepohl, 37, allegedly told his several students their vocal abilities would improve if they followed his suggested instructions and […]

  • Sexual Violence in Congo and My Cell Phone


     I’m looking at my cell phone right now in an entirely new light. I want to chuck it. This is how I felt last month as I listened on my IPOD to Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory. Sigh. Maybe you were already aware of this, but I certainly wasn’t. It’s dreadfully devastating how unaware […]

  • Scaptia Plinthina Beyonceae (or the fly named after Beyonce)

  • Erik Van Loon: Mass Media Artist, D.C. Lover (and the car project that promises Dutch Sandwiches)


    I met artist Erik Van Loon in bed. It’s not what you think! I was in bed though. To be clear, it was the top of a bunk bed in a Washington D.C. hostel (Capital View). Mr. Van Loon strolled into my mixed gender dormitory style room with his luggage and a smile. Erik is one of those people whose energy […]

  • Sex with the Abled and the Differently –Abled


    “You must be tired after the things we did last night.” When you think of sex you likely think of very physical actions that involve a fair amount of movement from two people. In a similar way that sexuality doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone, sexual activity doesn’t look the same to everybody either, and […]

  • When the Charlie Sheen Defense Fails, Try, Try Again PTA Mommy Theft.


    A former PTA treasurer in the Cobble Hill (aka Brooklyn) area of New York has been busted for embezzling approximately $100,000 from the school between 2006 and 2008. The upscale spa owner’s second time around motivational claim for the theft was that it was related to psychological and emotional problems steaming from her husband being […]

  • Get a Condom, Give a Condom: Share the Glove Lovin’


    This actually is a brilliant concept worthy of discussion and perhaps dare I say applauds? You buy a condom, and another condom is donated to developing country. That’s the plan according to Jim Moscou, the CEO of Sir Richard’s (a condom company). Moscou has recognized the facts that less than 17 percent of the contraceptive […]

  • You Really Thought That Celebrity Wrote That Cookbook?


    Hate to burst your bubble. “A New York Times food reporter has revealed the surprising truth behind the bestselling celebrity chef-authored recipe books…ghostwriter of nine cookbooks, Julia Moskin, claims that often the recipes are conceived by a team of assistants and sometimes the famous foodies don’t even read the final product.” umm…duh. I could have […]

  • Missing Bees Found as Zombies (as if bees weren’t frightening enough)


    Bees have been disappearing for a little while now, and it’s been a problem. [see: disappearing bee population and the case of the disappearing bees if you really had no idea they’d been going MIA since ’07] Everyone’s been all..where have all the good bees gone…? Bees are pretty important. (Um…yeah, honey is awesome!) Here’s […]

  • When She Enters Kindergarten Her MOTHER Still Won’t Be Old Enough to Drive


    If I told you that an increased number of young girls were giving birth to children, if you were an American you might blame this on the glamorization (and I use that word lightly) of teen moms circa MTV, or the over sexualized images in all forms of entertainment, but that’s not what this article […]

  • Can You Spare an Organ? (…an Organ as in Your Face?)


    The first successful organ transplant was in 1954. A kidney between twin brothers. We’ve come a long way since then in body parts going from one person to another. As of the writing of this, 116,901 people are waiting for organs in the United States. From Jan. 2012-Sept 2012 there have been 21,132 transplants performed. […]
