Too many people either sent this to me directly or posted it to their Facebook pages for me not to include in another edition of Spot the Myths. This once has an added helping of awesomeness because the comments are coming from a judge. Suggestive attire! Flirtatious conduct! How many do you count?
I promised my dear friend Jan Langbein that I would make mention of the upcoming multidisciplinary Conference on Crimes Against Women, March 28-30 in Dallas, TX.
