ženský kondóm, ktorý má chrániť pred tehotenstvom, HIV, prípadne inými chorobami, a potom sa rozpustiť

The condoms can be woven out of medicines that prevent HIV infections, providing protection against disease while also stopping sperm in their tracks. The electrospun condoms can be designed to dissolve within minutes, or over a period of several days. Women can discreetly put them on before a sexual encounter — either directly, or on a diaphragm or ring — and protect against pregnancy, HIV, and potentially other sexually transmitted diseases as well.

The Geena Davis Institute’s last study, led by USC’s Smith, examined the 11,927 speaking characters in 129 family films, 275 primetime programs and 36 children’s TV shows and still found that huge disparities. For example, only 28 percent of the speaking characters in family films studied were female, and 18 percent of women were shown wearing sexy attire in children’s shows.

A ešte k tomu strieľaniu na škole v Sandy Hook:

vlastníctvo strelných zbraní podľa krajín – USA ich má 89 na 100 obyvateľov (pre porovnanie, Slovensko 8.3)… a Republikáni majú skvelý nápad, ako zabrániť ďalším masovým strieľačkám na školách – ozbrojiť učiteľov  (a ja sa pýtam, koho ešte? nemocničný personál? zamestnancov obchodných centier?… toto je dobrý článok na danú tému)

o susedovi, ktorý sa postaral o 6 detí, čo zo školy ušli – najhorší bol koniec

A couple of hours after the last child left, a knock came on his door. It was a frantic mother who had heard that some children had taken refuge there. She was looking for her little boy.
“Her face looked frozen in terror,” Rosen said, breaking down in tears.
She thought maybe a miracle from God would have the child at my house,” he said. Later, “I looked at the casualty list … and his name was on it.”

portréty vlastníkov zbraní aj s výrokmi, prečo ich majú – napríklad táto rodina… nechápem… pri tom ma napadla otázka, ktorú sme v Amerike nikdy neriešili (ale zase je pravda, že sme nemali až toľko známych Američanov s malými deťmi) – ale je normálne spýtať sa pri návšteve s malými deťmi, či a kde majú odložené zbrane (viď štatistiku vyššie)?

recenzia na film o tom, ako bol vynájdený vibrátor

Hysteria is quite enjoyable. I found it funny (generally), charming (usually), intelligent (mostly), and entertaining (often). But I wanted so much more than to just like it. I wanted to love it. I wanted to be shouting about it from the rooftops. I wanted to be stopping strangers on the street, grabbing them by the lapels, and pleading with them to run out and see it right this minute. It was a movie about the invention of the vibrator, for fuck’s sake. I didn’t want to leave the theater thinking, “Yeah, that was pretty good — but it could have been so much better.”

And far too much of what was wanting from the film had to do with its treatment of the central topic — female orgasm.

Among 35 major national publications, including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, men had 81 percent of the quotes in stories about abortion, the research group said Thursday, while women had 12 percent and organizations had 7 percent.

In stories about birth control, men scored 75 percent of the quotes, with women getting 19 percent and organizations getting 6 percent. Stories about Planned Parenthood had a similar ratio, with men getting 67 percent, women getting 26 percent, and organizations getting 7 percent.

Women fared a bit better in stories about women’s rights, getting 31 percent of the quotes compared with 52 percent for men and 17 percent for organizations.

Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York authorized payments of as much as $20,000 to sexually abusive priests as an incentive for them to agree to dismissal from the priesthood when he was the archbishop of Milwaukee.

A spokesman for the archdiocese confirmed on Wednesday that payments of as much as $20,000 were made to “a handful” of accused priests “as a motivation” not to contest being defrocked. The process, known as “laicization,” is a formal church juridical procedure that requires Vatican approval, and can take far longer if the priest objects.

A victims advocacy group, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, sent a letter of protest to the current archbishop of Milwaukee on Wednesday asking, “In what other occupation, especially one working with families and operating schools and youth programs, is an employee given a cash bonus for raping and sexually assaulting children?”

A keď už o katolíkoch, tak ešte jeden článok. 9-ročné dievča v Brazílii. Od šiestich rokov ju sexuálne zneužíval nevlastný otec. Keď sa sťažovala na veľké bolesti brucha, zobrali ju do nemocnice. Tam sa zistilo, že je v štvrtom mesiaci tehotenstva a čaká dvojčatá. Jej matka súhlasila s okamžitým ukončením tehotenstva. Za to ju, aj doktorov, ktorí zákrok vykonali, exkomunikovali z katolíckej cirkvi. Nevlastného otca nie, lebo zjavne jeho prečin nebol taký vážny. Za najironickejší považujem ten výrok – život musí byť vždy chránený. Čo život toho 9-ročného dievčaťa? Ten by vôbec nebol ohrozený, keby mala donosiť a porodiť dvojčatá, všakže?

Declaring that “life must always be protected”, a senior Vatican cleric has defended the Catholic Church’s decision to excommunicate the mother and doctors of a nine-year-old rape victim who had a life-saving abortion in Brazil.
