In the true spirit of the season, the Orinda, California School Board has gone after the most egregious criminal in their school.

The standards she’d been using to find a good husband were, as her friend Jenny put it, “appallingly low.”

Why, hello there, I’m a Latina vagina and I have a message for heterosexual guys. Now I know what you’re going to ask me: “How well-groomed am I?”
No seas cochino! That’s none of your business, that’s personal. But I am here to, uh, talk business because I’m tired of all of these assumptions people make about me! [Mas…]
