Have you seen the latest GEICO commercial? The one in which Maxwell the pig is on a date when the car breaks down? The girl he’s with, apparently, wants to make out. A group called One Million Moms has posted a complaint about the commercial. Their website says:
Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with its inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico’s new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Parents find this type of advertising repulsive and unnecessary.

In recent years, the UK has seen a dramatic increase in sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The Health Protection Agency (HPA) states that gonorrhoea infections have increased by almost 25% between 2010 - 2011, with syphilis and herpes increasing by 10% and 4.6% respectively. However, many cases of STIs remain undiagnosed and untreated, and can have a devastating effect on general health and fertility.
Adventures in Being a Single Gay Parent-
There are only two things I ever wanted to be in this life, a husband and a father. Now, imagine watching men run for the next county, when you tell them. To shorten a very long story, I decided to become a father as becoming a husband was proving much more difficult. I was beginning to think I had a better chance at pregnancy. So after a period of interviews and navigation through the complex legal and emotional process I got a call on the day before Thanksgiving 2004, telling me that there was a little boy who was two years old.

When we began our potty-training journey a few weeks back, my son and I started with the adult-sized toilet. For those of you who are about to begin this journey...don't start with this toilet. We had some success, however, despite his screams as I placed his bottom on the cold, white seat. My mom suggested that I purchase a kiddy toilet, intimating that he might be afraid of the larger one. I stepped back, looked at the giant and realized that our super flusher toilet is rather ominous. It's tall, contains water that briefly disappears and sometimes smells. Hmmm. Okay.
