Texas Sex and Gender News Roundup

I just want to say this now, because I’m going to say a lot more about it next week, and because the debate rages on: I spent a half-hour this morning on the phone to Federally Qualified Health Centers–the ones anti-choicers keep telling me I should go to for my reproductive health care needs, because what Texas women need to be doing is taking medical advice from religious ideologues–trying to get an appointment for a pap smear. There’s one a half hour away that might be able to get me in sometime in May if I call them back at the end of the month. Planned Parenthood could get me in this afternoon.
