New Restroom Policy for Denny’s in Maine LEWISTON — The corporate owner of Denny’s restaurants in Maine has reversed its restroom policy in an agreement with a transgender customer, and now permits all customers to use restrooms consistent with their gender identities. The change, according to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders attorney Janson Wu, “is common sense.” The agreement, reached in March and announced on Monday, is the result of a lawsuit brought by Brianna Freeman against the chain’s Auburn restaurant after Freeman was denied access to the women’s restroom there.

While the state of Utah is now considering whether to bring charges against them, the family has moved to Nevada, and is bringing their case to a federal court.

Apple Stops Distributing Pedophile Mascot The iPhone app Dancing Cuddle Bear is no more. Apple had approved the free game, consisting of a very
(very!) kid friendly plush bear dancing to 11 hip hop tracks. But now it’s gone. Why daddy? Why? It turns out the creature in question is the infamous Pedobear, an internet meme so ancient it dates past 4chan all the way back to its Japanese predecessor 2channel, before it evolved into an icon used as a symbol and tongue in cheek warning about internet pedophiles, especially on 4chan’s /b/. After some coverage of the “creepy” app on The Smoking Gun, Apple has apparently pulled Dancing Cuddle Bear from the app store, making it once again safe for concerned parents and people who don’t like to see women’s filthy hot bare ankles.
Be warned. Your cabinet full of antibiotics that you take as vitamins to clear you up from your weekends of sodomy may have met their match, Super Gonorrhea! It’s time to use your big head. I’m not asking you to stop sticking your pee-wee through perfectly crafted glory holes and stop going to truck stops on your lunch break, but you may have to pay some heavy consequences. Reading is hard, I know, but please take the time and educate yourself to this alarming news, all sex jokes aside. AB
(Reuters) – Scientists have found a “superbug” strain of gonorrhea in Japan that is resistant to all recommended antibiotics and say it could transform a once easily treatable infection into a global public health threat.
The new strain of the sexually transmitted disease — called H041 — cannot be killed by any currently recommended treatments for gonorrhea, leaving doctors with no other option than to try medicines so far untested against the disease.
Magnus Unemo of the Swedish Reference Laboratory for Pathogenic Neisseria, who discovered the strain with colleagues from Japan in samples from Kyoto, described it as both “alarming” and “predictable.”

They’re pushing the Brooks Select for “high mileage” cyclists. I have to admit my eight year old B17 Special is a bit soft even after a lacing, so it would seem that the new Brooks Select line, made from organic raised “natural paced” cow leather would do the trick. Brooks says their Select line is more durable and stiff due to the nature of the leather. That means longer break-in time, but even more years of use. Hand stamped copper rivets are found on all Select saddles. The complete line is avaiable in the new leather from the Sparrow, B17, to the spring varieties. (Selectism)
