France: https://mapswire.com/

A 46-year-old father was sentenced to six months’ suspended imprisonment for violence against his daughter but also for threatening police officers. The man, who lives in Saint-Etienne (Loire) had in September, broken the nose of his child, on the pretext that she was homosexual . “When your daughter hides for two years that she is a lesbian, it deserves a slap,” argued the forty-year-old.

(Translated)

 

Un père de famille de 46 ans a été condamné à six mois de prison avec sursis pour des violences exercées sur sa fille mais aussi pour avoir menacé des policiers. L’homme, qui réside à Saint-Etienne (Loire) avait au mois de septembre, cassé le nez de son enfant, sous prétexte qu’elle était homosexuelle. « Quand votre fille vous cache depuis deux ans qu’elle est lesbienne, ça mérite bien une claque », a argumenté le quadragénaire.

Lesbians may have higher risk for cervical cancer?

Researchers discovered that the inaccurate assumptions by doctors about the sexual history of women in same sex relationships resulted in fewer health screenings for lesbians than straight (or bisexual?) women.

The human papillomavirus is the leading cause of cervical cancer and is most commonly transmitted during heterosexual intercourse but can also be transmitted orally and through skin-to-skin contact.

Please be aware of your risk factors and get health screenings as required.
