I hope these women win their lawsuit!

IMHO, this is sexual abuse.

President Obama has called Valencia College a ‘national model for women.’ But now the school has been hit with a federal lawsuit brought by two students that has put this Orlando, Florida, college under the microscope. In a lawsuit against Valencia College, two female students are alleging that invasive, humiliating and sometimes painful genital examinations were made mandatory in a sonography class. UPI writes:

“Valencia positioned these transvaginal probes as voluntary, but its actual policy and practice was that they were not,” according to the lawsuit, which also said college staff told students “they could find another school if they did not wish to be probed” after students complained.

The lawsuit provided a diagram of the procedure: Transvaginal probe

The suit alleges that threats were made of “academic penalties” and future employment opportunity “blacklisting” over lack of “volunteering.” This is in addition to inappropriate comments made by college staff during the probing, according to My Fox Tampa Bay. NBC-2 details the comments:

“Defendant Ball’s comments can only be described as bizarre during some of these forced probing sessions,” the lawsuit states.

“She allegedly approached one student … during a probing session and stated (she) was ‘sexy’ and should be an ‘escort girl’ (prostitute).”

My Fox Tampa Bay notes that “anatomically correct simulators” were available for the class to use, as well as access to real patients at hospitals during clinical practice.

God’s love is bigger!

Local businesses paid for the cleaning supplies. Others provided food for the volunteers. The female soldier is setting aside cash gifts for a reward to capture the vandal and donations to a charity that helps women veterans @ https://www.facebook.com/GraceAfterFire.

EVEN THE SMALL THINGS ARE PRECIOUS

We met my uncles and two of my cousins for our regular Thursday morning breakfast get-together. It’s one thing I can look forward to every week that brings me great joy. As we were leaving this morning, my cousin said she had granny’s old jewelry box with her, and did I want it back? I said ‘sure’ and so she got it out of her car and gave it to me. I remember it sitting on granny’s bedroom dresser for years. There was some jewelry left in it. Nothing of real value, but there was a rhinestone pin in the shape of a diamond she used to wear when she got dressed up to go out with Grampa. It brought back a flood of memories that had been dormant for many decades. She wore it to our church’s Christmas services and even wore it the day we buried the love of her life in 1972. After I fix a couple drawer pulls I plan to give it to my daughter to hand down to my granddaughter. I’m on the fence whether to keep the pin or give it to her, hoping she might cherish it as much as I do. It has absolutely no value money-wise, but it is priceless to me.
