Retailer H&M is making a bold statement by not making a statement at all. The clothing chain’s women’s wear home page has just been updated to include their latest “Beachwear” line, which if you click on it, includes a variety of beach clothing ranging from swimsuits to sheer knits to denim — all featuring plus-size model Jennie Runk. The remarkable thing about the line is that there is zero fanfare made about the line being “plus-size” or whatever — it’s simply “Beachwear.” How refreshing is that?!?

Occidental College in Los Angeles is facing a law suit accusing the institution of having a history of handing out less than severe punishments to students found guilty of sexual assault, including one instance in which a man who was found guilt of a sexual assault was sentenced to writing a five-page book report. A second man was required to apologize to his victim and resign from campus leadership positions. Other students found guilty were expelled but allowed to re-enroll after their victim either left the school or graduated. Keep reading for details on the suit as well as video from the press conference with Gloria Allred and a number of the victims.

Dozens of teens are proudly displaying the trend on YouTube.
Humble, Texas first grade teacher Irene Stokes is currently denying allegations that she fondled one of her students, and you won’t believe her main argument in her own defense!

Blanchard, Stokes said she “doesn’t like to even touch the black children on their hand, she shies away when they try to hug her.” In other words, “she admitted to being prejudice,” Blanchard says.
In what can only be described as dumbidextrous, 19-year-old Dandre Moore was arrested in Mobile, Alabama earlier this month after he was stopped by police “double texting” while driving through the George Wallace Tunnel. (Yes, “double texting” means he was texting with two different cell phones in both hands at the same time — apparently steering the vehicle with his knees.) Adding insult to stupidity, police found a large amount of drugs, including marijuana, Xanax, and oxycodone, in the car. Oh, and did I mention there was a three-year-old child in the back seat?
