  • Gov. Perry gets a standing ovation in Ohio for saying he supports a bill that would make abortion illegal if a fetal heartbeat exists.
  • Rick Perry’s “Al Gore Problem.”
  • The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at UT-Austin has received a $100,200 three-year Embrey grant.
  • How big Texas banking lady Beth Mooney became the first female chief of a top-20 U.S. bank.
  • Here are the gayest-growing counties in Texas.
  • Feminists at Texas State are like y’all, feminism does not suck, join the club.
  • Comments section fail: ladies, if you don’t carry a gun around your house and fire indiscriminately at anyone who shows up at your door, don’t blame anyone but yourself when you get raped in your own home.
