Texas Sex and Gender News Roundup

Now-former University of Texas professor Sarah Weddington.

Happy Official Barack Obama Birth Certificate Day. No doubt we can now move on to matters of pressing national concern, like addressing the floundering economy. No? Not really? Still harping on Planned Parenthood? Okay then.

    The question of publishing same-sex marriage announcements came up at a newspaper I worked at. The editors decided that if it was legal wherever the couple got married, the announcement would run. If it wasn’t legal, it wouldn’t. And this was at a small paper in Kentucky, so it’s odd to hear the Dallas Morning News won’t adopt a similar policy.

    Yuuuck. I went and read the comments. That was like asking one not to push the red button.

    And Sarah Weddington. Wow, I cannot believe that they laid her off. And cut the WGS department, which was only just now coming into its own, having a bachelor’s program, by around 25%…. fail UT.
