“Diana, huntress of bus drivers”

Street justice from vengeful ‘Diana’ in Ciudad Juarez - The Washington Post
Prosecutors say a middle-aged woman with blond hair or a blond wig boarded a bus along a major city thoroughfare, pulled out a gun and, without saying a word, shot the driver in the head three times. She killed her second victim the following morning at 8:20 along the same bus route. This time, she boarded with other passengers, rode for several blocks, then approached the driver from behind and raised her gun as the bus came to a stop. “You guys think you’re so bad, don’t you?” witnesses heard her say. Then, bang. The driver slumped in his seat. The woman fled. “We thought the first one was a crime of passion,” said Arturo Sandoval, spokesman for the Chihuahua state attorney general. “But after the second one, it began to look like a case of revenge.” A day after the second killing, local reporters received a communique signed by “Diana, huntress of bus drivers,” a name adopted from the Roman goddess whose statue towers over traffic in downtown Mexico City, her nude figure armed with bow and arrow. The message said the killings were meant to avenge sexual assaults by bus drivers on women who toil long hours at the city’s assembly plants, or maquiladoras. . . .

Women are buying used positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist

You’re Having A Baby! Or At Least, The Woman Who Sold Her Pregnancy Test On Craigslist Is – Consumerist
Need to play a hilarious (read: Maybe not actually funny) joke on your significant other? Want to freak out that guy who dumped you via Twitter? Or maybe you’re trying to find a cash-friendly way to recycle your positive pregnancy test. There’s apparently a flourishing online market for those little sticks saying you’re about to become a parent, which is either chuckle-worthy or really troubling. Moms who have already received their good news and have no more use for their pregnancy kits are shilling positive tests on Craigslist and are finding plenty of buyers willing to hand over $20-$40 for the honor of faux pregnancy, reports the New York Daily News. To wit! One woman from Manhattan writes: “I’m pregnant and will sell you my positive pregnancy test for $20. I don’t care what you need them for.” Would it matter if she did care? Probably not, because once you’ve got your hands on that baby — er, pregnancy test, that is — anyone could do anything with it. For example — maybe your boyfriend got the receptionist pregnant. “We had been trying for another (baby). He texted and said he isn’t sure who he wants to be with and I think I handled it well for what a cheating lying dog he is,” wrote one woman. “I would like the last laugh out of this. I will give some girl $40.” There are some less scandalous uses than revenge/terrifying your loved ones/bringing false hope: One L.A. woman said she wanted to the test to make a video on teen pregnancy for her local boys and girls club.

Woman scolds girls for taking sexy selfies, posts nearly nude pictures of her sons

Showing off your body is only wrong if you're female. Because only females are sinful, amirite? This woman is super obnoxious. FYI (if you’re a teenage girl) | Given Breath
I think the boys notice other things. For one, it appears that you are not wearing a bra. I get it – you’re in your room, so you’re heading to bed, right? But then I can’t help but notice the red carpet pose, the extra-arched back, and the sultry pout. What’s up? None of these positions is one I naturally assume before sleep, this I know. So, here’s the bit that I think is important for you to realize. If you are friends with a Hall boy on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, then you are friends with the whole Hall family. Please know that we genuinely like staying connected with you this way! We enjoy seeing things through your unique and colorful lens – you are funny, insightful, and often very, wise. Which is what makes your latest self-portrait so extremely unfortunate. That post doesn’t reflect who you are at all! We think you are lovely and interesting, and usually very smart. But, we had to cringe and wonder what you were trying to do? Who are you trying to reach? What are you trying to say? And now – big bummer – we have to block your posts. Because, the reason we have these (sometimes awkward) family conversations around the table is that we care about our sons, just as we know your parents care about you. . . .
