Wait, if sex and gender are fluid, that suggests they're not compressible. I prefer to think of them as a gas.

The parents dismissed their suit in February 2014 after the district changed its policies. But Black, in a ruling issued April 28, ordered the district to pay attorneys’ fees to the parents’ lawyers, saying the suit had been the catalyst that led Clovis to bring its ninth-grade courses into compliance with the law.

“Access to medically and socially appropriate sexual education is an important public right,” Black said.

Anti-news: Sex Workers Say A&E Show Lied To Them About Providing Resources And Protecting Their Privacy.

“This show, these people, it’s a disaster in my life,” said Kamylla, who spent weeks waiting for the promised assistance, quickly running out of money to support herself, her husband, and her children. They gave her a $200 fee and then did not follow through on promises of medical, dental, housing, and employment assistance, she told BuzzFeed News. “I kept on calling them, and nothing happened.”

Yep: "Anti-trafficking" organization exploited women and then abandoned them. This is a pattern. And now that they've outed her, she can't do sex work any more because she'll be immediately busted. And was.

Entry: 2015-04-29 10:03:22.262586-07 Baltimore Protests by Dan Lyke comments 4

This morning's Baltimore protests round-up: RT Ultra @Loot_Back:

"why do people burn their own payday loan centers, pawn shops, liquor stores, and cop cars?"

Conor Friedersdorf in The Atlantic: The Brutality of Police Culture in Baltimore notes:

I could go on, but I've long since started to skim past stories like "Baltimore police officer pimps out his own wife" and thinking, meh, I've seen worse from cops there. The cop who shot himself and lied about it to get worker's comp benefits? Meh, at least he didn't shoot someone else and then lie about what happened. ...

and expands on Baltimore Sun: Undue Force, looking at how Baltimore police officers have... well...

Orioles COO John Angelos offers eye-opening perspective on Baltimore protests transcribes a tweet conversation:

That said, my greater source of personal concern, outrage and sympathy beyond this particular case is focused neither upon one night’s property damage nor upon the acts, but is focused rather upon the past four-decade period during which an American political elite have shipped middle class and working class jobs away from Baltimore and cities and towns around the U.S. to third-world dictatorships like China and others, plunged tens of millions of good, hard-working Americans into economic devastation, and then followed that action around the nation by diminishing every American’s civil rights protections in order to control an unfairly impoverished population living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.

Goddamn if that doesn't make me sympathetic to the beneficiary of a sportsball dynasty.

Finally, some musings on what abuse at a personal level looks like: yesivebeenthere2: Baltimore:

My mother beat the shit out of me from 3 to 13. CRUNCH! There’s no suitable onomatopoeia for the sound of an adult’s hand belting a child across the face. There’s no word that describes what it’s like to feel your cartilage ring. ...

Seriously. Go. Read. It.

Entry: 2015-04-21 07:12:06.663229-07 discussing all pregnancy options by Dan Lyke comments 0

California Bill Would Require Crisis Pregnancy Centers to Discuss Abortion Options.

AB 775—the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency (FACT) Act—is being backed by the groups Black Women for Wellness and NARAL Pro-Choice California, which in March published a report on the deceptive misinformation given by the state’s 167 CPCs to pregnant people seeking services.

I'm sure this is a symbolic measure that's not actually expected to pass, or to withstand judicial scrutiny, but I like the sentiment.

Entry: 2015-04-17 07:05:37.437099-07 Sally Mann on Sally Mann by Dan Lyke comments 0

NY Times: The cost of Sally Mann's Exposure. Sally Mann, known for her black and white photography which includes pictures of her children, naked, muses on art, the fallout from the publication of those pictures, and how perception and culture impact the artist's work. Worth reading the whole thing.

Once the work was out in the world, I was puzzled as to why that sensuous beauty should be signposted as controversial, while magazine pages were filled with prurient images of young girls, all aimed at selling commercial products. Lanning understood and noted the difference between the images of my children’s bodies and those of the pornographers or the profane consumer culture. That day in Quantico, he reassured me on some points but cautioned me on others: No, law enforcement wasn’t likely to come after me, he said, but I was in for a rough time nevertheless.

Her book, Galileo's Middle Finger: Heretics, Activists, and the Search for Justice in Science, looks pretty good, and her Twitter stream says she's got an essay about the experience coming soon to The Stranger, will link when that happens.

Want to help prevent online bullying? Comment on Facebook

As TED’s social media editor, I have seen a lot of nasty comments. I’ve seen grown men and women deride a 14-year-old girl for her choice of dress. I’ve seen them say they’re revolted by a beautiful transgender woman. On every talk about race, I’ve seen a slew of racist comments. But none have ever been as bad as the comments we got when we published Monica Lewinsky’s TED Talk, The Price of Shame. At least at first.

It is a sign of how upside-down modern politics has become that one assumes that a politician who defends freedom of speech and women's rights in the Arab world must be some kind of muscular liberal, or neocon, or perhaps a supporter of one of Scandinavia's new populist right-wing parties whose commitment to human rights is merely a cover for anti-Muslim hatred. ...

Christianity Today: Contraception Saves Lives, a profile of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.

I get the impression from reading this that the author is against free access to abortion, or at least assumes that her readership is, and given that anti-abortion activists generally let their anti Griswold v. Connecticut[Wiki] flag fly it's interesting to see a "no, really, birth control saves lives" celebration from that front.
