Weekly Mashup Stage 68

In an effort to build up the Ethecofem community into a place where any walk of life will feel welcome to come and discuss things we are looking for another regular contributor, preferably of the female persuasion to balance things out a bit, but anyone interested is welcome. We like a variety of viewpoints, experiences, and perspectives. And as always April is on the eternal lookout for guest bloggers as well. If you're interested drop a line at ethecofem[at]gmail[dot]com.

Also feel free to treat this as an Open Thread.

Sperm bank turns down redheads: That's pretty messed up. I recall reading somewhere a few years ago that if current trends continue the natural red head would be extinct in about 300 years. Might be time to readjust that.

There are two things wrong with this pic.

Frenchman ordered to pay wife damages for lack of sex: Damn. So a woman divorced her husband over a lack of sex and then after getting the divorce goes back and successfully sues him for a rather large sum of money? That's just fucked up. Don't get me wrong I have no problem with her leaving is the sex life wasn't to her liking but to go after financial compensation for it? I think its safe to say that if the genders were swapped this shit would have been all over the place.

Dublin Woman Accused Of Raping Baby Pleads Not Guilty: "A Dublin woman is given a $1 million bond after she pleads not guilty to charges accusing her of raping a 10-month-old male."

PCMH Name Change On Hold Because Of Trademark Troubles: At first I was going to ask what idiot would mistake Pennsylvania for North Carolina. Oh yeah...

Sweet Sixteen: An interesting short story on choice, necessity, and desire. This is a must read and its really short so won't take up much time.

State Won’t Pay For Transgendered Prisoner To Have Sex Change: Personally I don't think the state should be responsible for paying for a transgender person's sex change procedure. HOWEVER I do think that the state should be responsible for the safety of transgender people that are pre-op, post-op, or otherwise. Just because a conviction means you lose some of your rights that doesn't mean you deserve to be attacked in prison (which goes for all prisoners for that matter).

Hit that shit!

Calif. woman pleads not guilty in penis slicing: If there was ever a person that deserved a cruel (but not fatal) fate...

Review of Sapphire 'The Kid" Part One: I'm Nine: The first of a four part series of posts reviewing "The Kid" by Sapphire. "The Kid" is a follow up novel that takes place about ten years after the events of the hit novel "Push" (which was adapted to film under the name "Precious").

Wallace Kuralt's era of sterilization: A look into the work of the brains behind one of the largest eugenics operations in North Carolina history. And a stark contrast to the praise and worship he received in his day.

I give up - which two things are wrong with the picture? I guess one thing is the amount of head, but the other? The fact tht you aren't somewhere on the picture, having a good time, too?

First there's the beer. One of the worst pourings I've ever seen. Second is that smile on her face. That look on her face almost makes me feel uncomfortable.
