1. Rapist preys on men in Houston area via YahooNews (You don't hear a lot of stories of men being raped - mostly because it's never reported.)
2. Males with a version of the menstrual cycle via New Scientist (Okay, we all knew it was true. Now maybe everyone will stop blaming every woman's cranky moment on PMS as if they couldn't have valid emotions - including anger.)
3. New Jersey Senate bans anti-gay marriage pastor via WCBS-TV (This bigot stood before the assembly on the day they passed the civil unions bill and implored God to change their minds: "We curse the spirit that would come to bring about same-sex marriage. We ask you to just look over this place today, cause them to be shaken in their very heart in uprightness." Uh, small problem. Invocations aren't supposed to be political.)
4. Gay student suing OC school district seeks up to $1.3M in damages via The Mercury News (They outed a lesbian student to her mom for kissing her girlfriend at school. But is that really worth $1.3 million? Is it that damaging for your parents to know you're gay? Of course, if the parents had gone berserk - like so many do - that would be one thing, but they seem to have accepted it and moved on, so...)
5. Gay and Straight Cars Named via Wheels 24 (What a concept. South Africans participated in "Alternative Car of the Year" where they picked the "gayest" and "straightest" 2006 model cars along with "Sexiest Rear of the Year." Don't ask.)
