Girl with a one-track mind got rather a lot of media attention, recently - essentially, for having lots of sex and blogging anonymously about it. And then for being 'outed', horribly and intrusively, by someone who thought it might make a story. That, in itself, is unspeakable.
But then, she reveals one of the emails that Nicholas Hellen, the Acting News Editor of the Sunday Times (hopefully not for much longer) sent her. How low can you go? Threats. Intimidation. Bullying, in short. 'Abby' is clearly a strong woman with plenty of support and I'm sure this little post will matter not one jot to her, but I saw the bandwagon and decided to crawl onto it anyway. I wish her all the very best.
I've got a whole lot more rage at the international press for their coverage of the Ashley X case this week - but I've pretty much said my piece over at Ouch so instead of repeating myself comprehensively I'll just point you there instead. Cutting out a little girl's uterus, and ovaries, and breasts "in case they cause her discomfort later on" is, at the very least, ridiculous. And obscene. And a whole load more words besides.
Lastly and on a sadder note, one of my littlest blog-friends died this week. Lance was six-and-three-quarters and had Menke's Syndrome. He was a lovely little chap and his parents and baby sister clearly absolutely adored him, and my thoughts are with them now.
Edited later, to add:
fairsCaPe, an ace poet and mum-blogger to a son with several profound impairments, has cancer and is quite poorly at the moment. She has my strength and good wishes and if anyone's got any spare they might like to lend her theirs, too.
