I’d like to dissect how Komen for the Cure completely destroyed a brand 3 decades in the making and how they’re now a different organization with a different future (if they even have one), whether they like it or not. My goal here is to help people understand this so you don’t make the same mistakes.
I’ve written more than twenty books, but was startled by what I learned: you can raise the possibility of abortion, but it must be rejected. I hit a wall of resistance I believe is self-censorship on the part of the publishers. When a character is pregnant, whether from rape, incest, etc., so long as a baby is born, that’s acceptable. The “Juno” scenario.
It’s no secret that the United States is in the midst of a War on Women. During January 20-27, women and allies from around the country will come together to fight back — online.
The war cry of the GOP (Grand Old Puritans) is that the HPV vaccine is a license for public fornication. This is how they rally their financial base. I get that, but the press doesn’t have to take the bait. It only becomes a story if the press makes it so.
I take a closer look at the Bedsider Campaign which launched last week with PSAs, a website, and other tools to help young people (ages 18-24 specifically) use contraception and avoid unplanned pregnancy. The ads are fun but is the website too light on STI information and too hard on condoms?
Obviously, Google cannot censor search results specifically to please one random politician, but Rick Santorum feels that the automated monopoly is part of some pernicious conspiracy to embarrass him.
Camera ready. Lights on. Pink mesh top and matching thong loosely tied. I smile and sweetly greet my morning customers with bright eyes. I’m a web cam model four days a week.
Is there a link between an anti-choice group goading Facebook followers into sharing their anti-choice savior fantasies and violent anti-choice vigilante justice?
Selling a copy of Playboy or Playgirl to a minor will land a retailer in the slammer. But, the same vendor is free to sell a mega-violent video game to the same minor, equipping his virtual self with the ability to rape at will, perform decapitations, light pedestrians on fire, and more!
Maria Talks, a website with frank sexual health information for young people, suddenly has a lot of critics who think it’s too explicit. I talk with one of the websites creators to get her take on the site and the controversy.
