Good morning, Dolls! I've had half a cup of Earl Grey and am feeling plucky, so I thought I might try my hand at some quippy pantylines this morning. What happened in ladynews over the weekend? Read on:
- The U.S. women's hockey team beat China 12-1. [LA Times] Nevertheless, China wins overall as millions of Americans still struggle to eat their Pei Wei with chopsticks.
- Some Israeli Dude arrested for confining, raping a harem of 21 women. [NY Daily News] Media outlets soon to go into Defcon 5, the level at which they can barely contain their lurid joy at a story about a woman confined for sex.
- Women often miss signs of a heart attack. [Boston Globe] Half said family caregiving responsibilities kept them from seeing a doctor. Being single on Valentine's Day now sounds kind of awesome, in the way that being alive sounds kind of awesome.
- Emergency contraception finally being doled out at military pharmacies. [NYT] Look, just because you decided to serve your country doesn't mean it can't do its damndest to oppress you. Remember, wearing a veil is real oppression!
- After the death of a male Olympic luger, the women's luge track is now 800 ft. shorter, and ladies are pissed. [HuffPo] Men now starting at original women's starting point, 600 ft. in. We now know that women are exactly 200 ft. less awesome than men. Thanks, Olympics!
