Gay Softball League Rocked By Heterosexual Cheating Scandal
The five ballplayers summoned before a protest committee at the Gay Softball World Series stood accused of cheating. Their alleged offense: heterosexuality.
Inside a small room, surrounded by committee members and other softball officials, the players said they were interrogated about their sexual orientation. Confusion reigned. According to court records, one player declined to say whether he was gay or straight but acknowledged being married to a woman. Another answered yes to both gay and heterosexual definitions. A third asked if bisexual was acceptable and was told, “This is the Gay World Series, not the Bisexual World Series.”
Ultimately, the committee ruled that three of the five were “nongay” and stripped the team of its second-place finish.
British soldier in Afghanistan gives birth at base attacked by Taliban, despite allegedly being unaware she was even pregnant.
The woman, a gunner in the Royal Artillery, had complained of stomach pains before medics informed her she was in labour.
She gave birth to a son five weeks premature in Camp Bastion on Tuesday.
Mother and baby are both said to be in a stable condition, with a specialist paediatric team from the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, preparing to travel to Afghanistan to assist them on the flight home.
The Ministry of Defence last night confirmed it was against military policy for servicewomen to be deployed on operations while pregnant and said they had been unaware the servicewoman was expecting.
It is the first time a soldier from the UK has given birth while in Afghanistan.

For anyone who has lived with a women who has gone through pregnancy, I would think it is hard to believe. Of course, like others we have heard of it before. How can the physical changes NOT tell a woman (and those around) that something is different? I am not just talking about a bulging belly and weight gain.
This happened to a friend of a friend of mine in the 1980's in Santa Monica. The mother was an anorexic-looking cocaine addict who did not know she was pregnant until she went into labor. Nobody around her, including her husband, knew or even guessed she was pregnant. The baby was born addicted to coke and taken away from the mother who was promptly deported. A couple of years ago I heard that the child had just graduated from Oxford.
A friend of mine just found himself a father at 22. His girlfriend had no idea she was pregnant until she went to the doctor with stomach pains only to find out she was 8 and a half months pregnant. Had a baby boy 2 weeks later.
The University of Tennessee says it has suspended a fraternity chapter indefinitely and may refocus its alcohol education programs after police said a student was hospitalized following a weekend incident involving alcohol enemas.
Twelve Tennessee students were cited with underage drinking and one with disorderly conduct following the incident early Saturday at a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity chapter house, according to a university spokeswoman.
"Shock would not be an (overstatement)," Tim Rogers, vice chancellor of student life, told reporters Wednesday. "I myself had never heard of what has been alleged."
Knoxville police say they began investigating after a student was taken to the UT Medical Center in critical condition early Saturday with a blood alcohol level of 0.40 -- five times the legal cutoff for driving.
"Upon extensive questioning, it is believed that members of the fraternity were using rubber tubing inserted into their rectums as a conduit for alcohol as the abundance of capillaries and blood vessels present greatly heightens the level and speed of the alcohol entering the bloodstream as it bypasses the filtering by the liver," Knoxville Police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Monday in a statement.
I don't know . . . I bet it was a woman who came up with their great bumper sticker: "Save the ta-tas" Raising awareness (and money) for this cause can be more than just wearing pink. Imagination (and a good sense of humor) can't be a bad thing. I don't know that anything in that video was offensive (but then again, I am not one. My wife, however, did not disapprove of it (bumper sticker)).
