Lesbians of Lesbos, oh my...

Three Lesbians (residents of the Greek island, not women-loving-women) have taken to court the gay organization, Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece. The three Lesbians claim that the organization "'insults the identity' of the people of Lesbos, who are also known as Lesbians."

"My sister can't say she is a Lesbian," said Dimitris Lambrou. "Our geographical designation has been usurped by certain ladies who have no connection whatsoever with Lesbos," he said.

Lesbos, the birthplace of the anciet poet Sappho, is a widely popular destination spot among gay women.

I would be interested to see what anti-gay groups have to say about this.

Back from vacation, and I've been tagged...

By Fannie's Room, who by the way has posted an excellent article on Title IX.

Here are the rules of the tag game:

1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.

Glass's Office Gynecology, Fifth Edition

2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.

"Imaging is most useful when an intrauterine pregnancy is seen, thus making the existence of an ectopic pregnancy unlikely."

3. Post the next 3 sentences.

"Using transvaginal sonography, the most reliable predictor of an ectopic pregnancy is the failure to visualize an intrauterine pregnancy at the appropriate gestational age and/or beta-hCG level. Do not rely on seeing an ectopic pregnancy to establish the diagnosis. Findings that may suggest the presence of an extrauterine pregnancy are an endometrial thickness of greater than 10mm and uterine area greater than 20cm squared but no intrauterine pregnancy."

Hmm, good to know.

But honestly, in a book about gynecology, the possibilities for something more exciting that ectopic pregnancy diagnosis were virtually endless. Maybe next time.

I will be taking a week break from the blogosphere due to a much-needed vacation.

SO enjoy yourselves while I'm away... I'll be at the beach, or the pool, or the bar... sipping drinks and enjoying my time away from work and school.
