New Batwoman is lesbian crime-fighter


This is too cool.

Batwoman – real name Kathy Kane – will appear in 52, a year-long DC Comics publication that began this month.
In her latest incarnation, she is a rich socialite who has a romantic history with another 52 character, ex-police detective Renee Montoya.
52 will be published in the UK as a graphic novel by Titan Books in 2007.

I love it. And I don’t even read comics. (Though I may now.)
Random question: Why was it necessary for the above article to describe the new Batwoman as a “lipstick lesbian?�

Ohio’s anti-gay law lets another unmarried abuser off the hook

An Ohio man’s domestic violence conviction was voided last week because he wasn’t married to the woman he abused. Dallas McKinley was convicted of a fourth-degree felony after he pushed his girlfriend, hit her and threw objects at her. The ruling, as it stands, leaves prosecutors with the option of seeking a lesser charge.
This is all because the state of Ohio would rather allow domestic violence without consequences than let gay couples get married. The state’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage has made domestic violence law only applicable to married couples.
It guess it’s a good thing violence only happens in statesanctioned relationships. Riiight.

Kuwaiti women campaigning…in a rush

The New York Times had an interesting piece up yesterday on Kuwaiti women and their recently-won right to run for parliament.

Elections had been scheduled for summer 2007, the first since women were given the right to vote and run for office in 2005. But on May 21, Kuwait’s ruler, Sheik Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah, dissolved the all-male 50-member parliament because of a rowdy dispute over election laws and ordered early elections June 29.
Women who thought they had more than a year to plan their campaigns had only five weeks.
”The advantage is that we will be working and concentrating harder,” said Fatima al-Abdali, who submitted her application to run on the first day of registration last week.

Um, ...

“Organic sex” my ass

A new website denouncing contraception has cropped up, touting itself as part of the Contra-Contraception Movement. But unlike the wacky folks that are “mischaracterized� in a recent NY Times mag piece, Contra-Contraception.com claims that they are a secular group simply pushing the benefits of “organic sex.�

Many women, in an effort to live healthily, who have turned to organic and unprocessed foods. They have come to also realized that artificial contraception isn’t very healthy either, and that its numerous side effects should be avoided.

Lung cancer different in women

New studies are looking into why lung cancer affects women differently than men; it could be our dear friend estrogen.
Lung cancer will kill 72,000 women this year–more than breast, ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers combined.

[Dr. Kathy Albain] is heading a National Cancer Institute-funded study that is recruiting 720 newly diagnosed lung cancer patients to examine what hormones, genes or other molecular factors explain why lung cancer behaves differently in men and women, smokers and nonsmokers.
“We’re learning what’s going on in the lung, and whether or not this is a real thing that can be exploited for cancer treatment,” she says.
Estrogen already is a leading suspect.

One study reports that estrogen may “act as a fuel for lung ...
