Republicans Slam Democrats for Defense Bill Requiring Women to Register for the Draft

The language in the NDAA would amend “the Military Selective Service Act to require the registration of women for Selective Service.” The committee “voted 22-3 to advance the NDAA for Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 to the Senate floor.”

Oh FFS. Do you have the right lens to spot Fat shaming?

Brown offers pre-college summer course on 'emerging academic field' of Fat Studies

After matching with a man on a dating app, an Iowa woman exchanged texts with him before arranging to meet in person yesterday at her residence.

But when Sumaya Thomas, 18, got “cold feet,” she dialed 911 in a remarkably harebrained bid to avoid an IRL interaction, according to cops.

As detailed in a criminal complaint, Thomas, who lives in an Iowa City suburb, called police to report that her abusive ex-boyfriend had shown up outside her residence and was sending her threats via Snapchat to “hit, punch, kick, and stab her.”
