Texas Sex and Gender News Roundup

FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY. I’m going camping this weekend. What are y’all doing?

  • UT-Austin researchers ask 700 horny college kids to imagine someone cheating on them in a hetero or a homosexual affair, draw large-scale conclusions about evolutionary psychology as a result. GUESS WHAT THEIR FINDINGS WERE? Dudes like sex and ladies like marriage!
  • It’s worth repeating that ultrasounds are already performed routinely before abortions. Gov. Perry just wants you dumb sluts to look at them.
  • Rape charges dropped against University of Lousiana-Monroe baseball players, one of which is a native Texan. They stopped when she started crying, what else do you people want?
  • A study funded by The Dallas Women’s Foundation suggests that as many as 740 under-18 girls may have been sex-trafficked last November. The number is expected to rise significantly during the Super Bowl.
  • Will this be the year that the tens of thousands of untouched rape kits in Texas finally get tested?

    The article about the ULM baseball players is unnerving enough (and full of useless information; like I give a shit that the one guy is a right-handed pitcher), but the comments people have left there just make me sad.

    What has become of our society when people start thinking that those who were raped either should’ve known better or should be sued by the people who raped them, just because a jury of morons felt there wasn’t enough evidence?

    Have we really become so jaded? Or are baseball and right-handed pitchers really that important?
