California has become the first state to require students on college campuses to receive active consent before all sexual activity.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed into law a bill that will impose this new standard for consent at all colleges that receive state funding, including all public universities and many private institutions where students receive state grants.

Consent can be conveyed by a verbal “yes,” or signaled in a nonverbal way, but lack of resistance or objection cannot constitute consent. …

The new law will also offer other protections: universities will be required to offer on-campus victims’ advocates; victims who come forward to report a sexual assault may not be punished for under-age drinking; and all institutions will be required to teach incoming freshmen about sexual assault and consent during orientation.

The greatest product ad of all time? Quite possibly.

(from the glorious minds of Tim & Eric)

joyeuse-noelle:

trans-parenting:

This ad apparently appeared in the Star Tribune, Minnesota’s largest state newspaper, yesterday.  Sponsored by a conservative Catholic group it urges parents to oppose a policy change (that is expected to pass) that would allow for trans high school athletes to participate in sports with proper accommodations in place.

These fear-mongering tactics are without evidence, misleading, and as tiresome as they are offensive.  It is always drumming up fear over “men” in private spaces with girls (I have yet to see a single statement like this addressing transmen in male spaces) and always with some implication (subtle or not) that trans people are deceptive, threatening, and quite possibly sexual predators.

The proposed policy is simple, and has plenty of barriers in place that would prevent abuse (not to mention the other existent rules & laws in place that would cover any potential concerning behavior).  Requiring a confirming letter from both a parent/guardian and medical professional is more than enough “proof” of gender, and the accommodations provided are common sense and in line with similar high school policies from California as well as many colleges & universities.

But, as much as I am confident that this will pass, you can bet I will be sending off a couple emails to share with these individuals just how important this stuff is.

And to the Minnesota Child Protection League shame on you.

At some point we have to start acknowledging that these are hate groups, right?

Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]

This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year.

it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.

Thankfully, the NFL owned up to the fact that the penalty was wrong.

“Players are not allowed to go to the ground to celebrate, but NFL spokesman Michael Signora told USA Today’s Tom Pelissero that religious expression is not included in that rule.”
 So, yeah. The refs made an understandable misinterpretation of the rule, and the NFL has owned up to the fact.
