I don't like starting the week off with bad news but I could not let either of these items go unmentioned.First, a sorority in Indiana kicks out all of their members who aren't thin, white and pretty enough. Frankly, I didn't know there were sororities anywhere that didn't already abide by these ridiculous rules but I'm sad to discover that one of the few holdouts has crumbled. It was especially unnerving to read that they kept the girls who were the most popular with the frat boys. How sad that the sorority cannot exist independently of how popular it is with a bunch of beer swilling morons. (I'm sure there are some frat boys who are perfectly nice guys. Come forward, damnit!) The only good thing I can say about this is thank god there's been at least some sort of outcry. And, six of 12 girls judged pretty enough to stay quit in protest. The other six were probably the ones making all of the decisions.LinkNext, South Dakota. Not that I expect great things from this state after they tried (and failed) to ban abortion two years in a row. But abortion bans are almost expected, the other legislative piece of news to come out of SD this week was not. Legislators rejected a bill that would mandate telling rape victims about emergency contraception in emergency departments. Not dispense it to them, just tell them about it. Almost everyone in the country agrees that women should not have to carry to term pregnancies conceived under coerced or forced conditions. Eighty percent of the country believes this (what the hell are the other twenty percent thinking?) so why not tell women about a drug that could keep them from ever having to get pregnant in the first place? Let's hope that there are some fantastic ER docs out there who know what they are doing. Maybe the news of this will help people learn more and start talking about EC as much as they can.Link (via Feministing)
