TIL in 1990, Sam Wyche who was the coach of the Cincinnati Bengals barred a female reporter from the locker room saying he didn’t want her to see his players naked. He was fined $27,000, which at the time was the largest fine ever given to an NFL coach. https://www.rawchili.com/3091256/

Deshaun Watson (shoulder contusion) is expected to play vs #Ravens. Because he hasn’t thrown all week, Stefanski/trainers will watch Watson throw in warmups before officially giving green light.

"By 1940, nearly 11 percent of Southern-born white people and more than 15 percent of Southern-born Black people had left the South. Though studded with obstacles, the migration of Black people out of the South infused Northern cities such as Chicago, Philadelphia and New York with energy and talent, helped to galvanize the civil rights movement and created solid support for the modern Democratic Party." 2/2 #USPoli #history #sociology #Ohio #Indiana #Illinois #Wisconsin #Michigan #Pennsylvania

#Ohio high school coach resigns after team's 'Nazi' playcall
Here's a first look at the National Museum of the US Air Force recent acquisition of the #Sukhoi Su-27.
An #Ohio high school football coach has resigned after he and his players repeatedly used play calls containing the word "Nazi" during a game. The opposing team hails from a suburb that's about 90% Jewish.
A reminder that no one is born a bigot. Kids are being taught this crap, often by the "responsible" adults in their lives.

In November, #Ohio now has two ballot issues to vote on that have oppressed folks for far too long. A “yes” vote on Issue 1 will bring logical reproductive rights laws to the state. A “yes” vote on Issue 2 will bring common sense marijuana legalization to Ohio.

The sharply divided court said only one element of the description is misleading and must be rewritten. The justices ruled that all other elements that were challenged, including the substitution of "unborn child" for "fetus," can remain.
Jim Fucking Jordan continues his assault on facts and truth. There are not sufficiently vile words in the English language to describe this runny shit of a man. (Gift Link.)
From ABC News: New body camera footage shows East Palestine toxic train derailment evacuation efforts
#Cincinnati #Ohio region #school servicing 3rd and 4th graders, having a Friday ice cream party, won't let students with negative #SchoolLunch meal balances buy ice cream for the event, won't let other students buy for friends.
School apologizes for wording but keeps policy in place
The school is in #LebanonOhio which sparked controversy over abortions within its boundaries, originally including criminal aiding and abetting abortions laws
This is the best that Republicans can do re: mass shootings at schools. Fucking disgusting fascist bullshit.
“But we gave them tourniquets and compression dressings!” is the worst possible response to gun violence in schools.
Well that was new, had a knock on the door and figured it was someone trying to sell over-priced cable internet with horrible upload speeds, but instead was a young presumably OSU college student, handing out "informative" pamphlets on Ohio's upcoming amendment bill.
Student: "Are you aware that with this bill women can get an abortion anytime they want"
Me: "The bill states up to viability as defined by her medical professional on a case-by-case basis"
Student: "Yeah, so up to birth"
Me: "Viability as defined by a medical professional"
Student: "Yeah, and you can bribe them"
Me: "Umm sure, ok"
Student: "So you're fine with killing babies?"
Student: "So you're fine with killing human fetus babies?"
Me: "Human fetus"
Student: "And you're fine with teenage girls getting an abortion, even without her parent's consent"
Student: "Well I'm not ok with MURDER" (and walks away)
ok, so don't get one if you feel that way. This bill isn't forcing folks to GET abortions.
Also I like the sidenote on the pamplet, "Wide open. Could include sex-change surgeries and more" in regards to "Every individual has a right to carry out one's own reproductive decisions"
Yes??? Why is ensuring access to medical treatment such a controversial subject? It's hard enough to even _AFFORD_ it in this country, why should the government tell folks what we can and can't do in terms of healthcare?
They also seem to take exception to "patient's life or health" by scribbling "not just physical health, but also emotional, financial, and more"
Again.... NO FUCKING SHIT! There's more to health than just "do you have a bloody pulse"!
Just found out that the outspokenly anti-abortion secretary of state of #Ohio Larose, colluding with the majority-Republican state Supreme Court, rewrote the citizen-lead #abortion amendment summary that will appear on the ballot in november.
This state's #government is a joke.

Diversity mural getting covered up draws criticism, controversy in Forest Hills
A mural that represents diversity and inclusion was covered up and then painted over by Forest Hills School District, resulting in some parents and students questioning the board's decisions and transparency.
The mural depicted people of different races, religions and sexual orientations coexisting.
The student-produced mural had been up for years.

Dozens of fraudulent public comments urging the state of #Ohio to allow fracking in state parks were sent in the names of people without their knowledge or permission. One was a 9-yr-old girl.
Republicans did this.

‟Ohio Supreme Court dismisses challenges to GOP-drawn map ruled unconstitutional”
Via Dave Wasserman:
This is actually a win for Democrats, as Republicans won’t get a chance to more aggressively re-gerrymander Ohio’s lines before 2024. Per Ohio’s rules, however, the lines will need to be redrawn by 2026.
#Ohio will use same unconstitutional congressional maps in 2024, as court dismisses legal challenges
They aim to ensure “that votes cast will be for those constitutionally qualified to hold office, that a #disqualified candidate does not siphon off support from…candidates of choice, & that voters are not deprived of the chance to vote for a qualified candidate in the general election,” the #lawsuit says.
Similar efforts are unfolding in other states. Last month, …#FreeSpeechForPeople wrote to… #Florida, #NewHampshire, #NewMexico, #Ohio & #Wisconsin, urging them not to include #Trump on ballots.

Do I know any folks out in #ohio who could help a friend find a therapist that works with people who are uninsured or would accept sliding scale payments? They're unable to afford services like BetterHelp, but really need professional support right now.
