Six Gay, Bi Men Sue USC Doctor for Sexual Battery, Harassment
The University of Southern California and a doctor recently employed there were hit with a lawsuit from six gay and bisexual men who accuse the physician of sexual battery, gender violence, sexual harassment, negligence, and fraud.
Dr. Dennis A. Kelly, who retired from USC two years ago, denies the claims, telling the Los Angeles Times that he always acted "professionally and without any other motive."
The plaintiffs allege Kelly targeted gay and bi male students, subjecting them to "demeaning and derogatory" terms and inquiring if they used sex toys and watched internet porn. The accusers — some of which attended USC between 2009 and 2014 — also said they were subjected to "intrusive and medically unnecessary rectal examinations."

This Is What Happens to Your Body if You Eat Almost No Carbs
In many ways, refined carbohydrates—bread, pasta, white rice—are like fossil fuels. They contain a lot of energy, they’re cheap to produce, and just when it seems as though supply can't keep up with demand, some technological innovation enables us to extract and produce more of them. And like fossil fuels, the scientific consensus is that an over reliance on refined carbohydrates is going to end badly.
Most people who are interested in cutting carbs out are doing so to lose weight. Anecdotal and scientific research suggests that it’s a pretty good strategy to take to drop some pounds. But carbs aren’t just in the types of food I mentioned above. They’re also hiding out in fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, milk, legumes, and plenty else. With that being the case, you can imagine that cutting your carb intake to virtually nothing would be very difficult indeed and—as you'll read in a moment—there’s research suggesting that it’s potentially dangerous. Here are some of the things that would happen if you ditched refined carbs, limited the “good” (or complex) carbs named above and opted to consume butter, bacon, and bourbon to your heart’s content.

Mom Fights Back After Nurse Body Shames Her 13-Year-Old Daughter: 'She Is Ignorant'
Julie Venn is teaching her daughters that “strong is beautiful, and weight means nothing” — so she was frustrated when a nurse body shamed her 13-year-old during her yearly checkup.
The personal trainer and mom of two went into the appointment excited to see how much her younger daughter, Riley, had grown in the past year.
“The coach in me has loved seeing her strength and size finally come along and the mom in me has loved watching this beautiful young girl begin to become a young woman,” Venn, 48, wrote in a Facebook post.
But when the nurse practitioner came into the room, Venn said that she immediately started questioning Riley — who plays softball and basketball — about her diet, exercise, sleep habits and school, before asking, “Tell me Riley, how can you explain all of this weight you’ve gained?”
Church sex abuse: Kentucky attorney general wants to investigate state Catholic dioceses
The Kentucky attorney general will seek the Legislature's permission to form a statewide grand jury to investigate Kentucky's Catholic dioceses in line with last month's damning report on Pennsylvania Catholic churches.
That report showed church leaders protected more than 300 "predator priests" for decades in six Pennsylvania dioceses because they were more interested in safeguarding the church and the abusers than in ministering to victims.
Deputy Attorney General J. Michael Brown said his office has been in contact with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and that his staff will "in the near future" draft legislation to put to lawmakers in Frankfort.

UK schoolgirls have been pressured by peers to have FGM, campaigner says
Some schoolgirls in the United Kingdom have been pressured by their peers into undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM), according to FGM survivor and campaigner Leyla Hussein, Britain's Press Association reported.
Hussein, who founded the Dahlia Project in 2013 to help other survivors, said that she has spoken with many young women who say they feel vulnerable to becoming a victim to a crime that is still seen by many as a cultural practice or tradition, rather than a violent sexual offense, PA said.
"Some of my clients are 19-year-old girls now who were children or were born in this (country) and they will say to you they were pressured in a playground in a school in London to go and have it done," she said.

Mario Batali Now Under Criminal Investigation by Boston Police for Allegedly Groping Woman
Mario Batali is now facing criminal investigations in two states for sexual assault.
Natali Tene, the 28-year-old woman who is suing Batali in Massachusetts for groping her in a Boston bar last year, also filed a complaint against the chef with the Boston Police Department over the alleged assault. BPD confirmed to Eater that it is investigating Tene’s claim, which she made on June 22.
Tene, whose story was detailed in an Eater investigation earlier this year, claims that Batali rubbed her breasts, grabbed her buttocks, and forcibly kissed her in a Boston bar last April when the former fan took selfies with celebrity chef; she is suing Batali for assault and battery and seeking damages for emotional distress and humiliation. After Eater reported on Batali’s pattern of sexual misconduct in December, Tene — along with a number of other women — came forward to tell their accounts of being groped by Batali.

Homosexuality and Pedophila: The False Link
It is so hard to believe that people are still trying to use the purported link between pedophilia and homosexuality. The old, tired argument that pedophilia is linked with homosexuality is wrong on many levels.
First, we need to clarify our definitions. When discussing sexual abuse and molestation of children, there’s often conflict over terminology. One frequently quoted researcher on the topic of homosexuality and child molestation, Gregory Herek, a research psychologist at the University of California, defines pedophilia as “a psychosexual disorder characterized by a preference for prepubescent children as sexual partners, which may or may not be acted upon.” He defines child sexual abuse as “actual sexual contact between an adult and someone who has not reached the legal age of consent.” Not all pedophiles actually molest children, he points out. A pedophile may be attracted to children but never actually engage in sexual contact with them. Quite often, pedophiles never develop a sexual orientation toward other adults.
Herek points out that child molestation and child sexual abuse refer to “actions,” without implying any “particular psychological makeup or motive on the part of the perpetrator.” In other words, not all incidents of child sexual abuse are perpetrated by pedophiles. Pedophilia can be viewed as a kind of sexual fetish, wherein the person requires the mental image of a child — not necessarily a flesh-and-blood child — to achieve sexual gratification.

Just five days after he reached the United States, the 15-year-old Honduran boy awoke in his Tucson, Arizona, immigrant shelter one morning in 2015 to find a youth care worker in his room, tickling his chest and stomach.
When he asked the man, who was 46, what he was doing, the man left. But he returned two more times, rubbing the teen’s penis through his clothing and then trying to reach under his boxers. “I know what you want, I can give you anything you need,” said the worker, who was later convicted of molestation.
