City Votes To Expand Saggy Pants Ban To Ladies
Huffington Post - over 3 years
OPA-LOCKA, Fl -- A controversial 2007 city ordinance that drew praise from conservative host Dr. Laura Schlessinger and criticism from the ACLU may now be expanded to women. Opa-Locka banned saggy pants and exposed underwear in city buildings six years ago and in 2010, expanded the ban to include any public place. Signs dot the small 4.2-square-mile city warning that low-slung pants violate the city's law. Those with their boxers exposed now face a $250 fine or up to 10 hours of community service. While the ordinance does not explicitly target males only, an Opa-Locka city commissioner is making sure women are held to the same standard. “I heard a little boy say, ‘Mommy, pull your pants up, that man is looking at you,’ ” Dorothy Johnson, who sponsored the new measure and who is also known as "Lady Justice" in the community, told the Miami Herald. “Your son is telling you this, and she didn’t see anything wrong with it.” City commissioners recently voted to tentatively exp ...

Michelangelo Signorile: Boycott the Olympics? Russian Vodka? NBC? Maybe. Here Are Five Other Ripe Targets
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Russia's horrific anti-gay crackdown is finally getting attention. That's the great thing about the boycotts that have been launched in recent days. Moscow journalist Masha Gessen, a lesbian and a mother, told me in an interview about reports that Vladimir Putin may push for a law in the fall to remove adoptive and biological children from the homes of gay parents (having passed the ban on homosexual "propaganda" earlier this year), an absolutely barbaric reality if it comes to pass. There's been little discussion of this or of other Russian anti-gay brutality in the American media. So, boycotts are a way to get attention in an American media that values corporate and other interests over gay lives overseas. Some have called for the U.S. to boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Whatever you think of the idea -- and there's certainly well-reasoned opposition -- it's put the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on the defensive and has NBC fielding criticism b ...

Shacking up
World Community - Christian View - almost 5 years
The web is buzzing about an opinion article published by The New York Times last Saturday. “The Downside to Cohabitating Before Marriage” has been one of the most emailed and among the most viewed articles on the Times’ website this week, although it contains nothing new or groundbreaking. It merely confirms what most know or suspect: Living together before marriage increases the risk of divorce. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist and author, writes about a client she calls “Jennifer.” The client and her live-in boyfriend eventually married, but when Jennifer was in therapy with Jay, divorce was on her mind. During cohabitation—a euphemism for “shacking up”—Jennifer said she felt like she was on a “multiyear, never-ending audition to be his wife.” They’d bought furniture together and had the same friends. In their 20s when they moved in together, they married in their 30s seemingly by default. How romantic. Jay notes that women and men tend to see shacking up differently. You don’t s ...

  • 2011

    I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what is on my mind. In 2011, she began broadcasting on satellite radio with Sirius XM.
    More Details Hide Details Her program is also available as a podcast at iTunes and from her own website. Advice books: Religious books: Children's books In January 1992, Schlessinger played herself in the Quantum Leap season four episode "Roberto!".
    On January 3, 2011, Schlessinger's show moved exclusively to Sirius XM Radio.
    More Details Hide Details
    Her show moved to Sirius XM Radio's Sirius XM Stars on January 3, 2011.
    More Details Hide Details Schlessinger announced a "multi-year" deal to be on satellite radio. Schlessinger was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Brooklyn and on Long Island. Her parents were Monroe "Monty" Schlessinger, a civil engineer, and Yolanda (Ceccovini) Schlessinger, an Italian Catholic war bride. Schlessinger has said her father was charming and her mother beautiful as a young woman. She has a sister, Cindy, who is 11 years her junior. Schlessinger has described her childhood environment as unloving and unpleasant, and her family as dysfunctional. She has ascribed some of the difficulty to extended family rejection of her parents' mixed faith Jewish-Catholic marriage. Schlessinger said her father was "petty, insensitive, mean, thoughtless, demeaning and downright unloving". She described her mother as a person with "pathological pride", who "was never grateful", who "would always find something to criticize," and who "constantly expressed disdain for men, sex and love". She credited her father with giving her the drive to succeed.
  • 2010
    Age 63
    On August 10, 2010, Nita Hanson, a black woman married to a white man, called Schlessinger's show to ask for advice on how to deal with a husband who did not care when she was the subject of racist comments by acquaintances.
    More Details Hide Details Schlessinger first replied that "some people are hypersensitive" and asked for some examples from the caller. Hanson informed Schlessinger that her acquaintances had stated, "How you black people do this? You black people like doing that." Schlessinger responded that her examples were not racist and that "a lot of blacks only voted for Obama simply because he was half black. Didn't matter what he was going to do in office; it was a black thing. You gotta' know that. That's not a surprise." Schlessinger continued by telling the caller that she had a "chip on her shoulder," was "sensitive," and also, "Don't NAACP me," and, "a lot of what I hear from black think… it's really distressing and disturbing." When the caller noted that she was referred to as the "n-word" by the individuals in question, Schlessinger complained that blacks are fine with cordially using the slur among themselves, but that it was wrong when whites used it to slur them. In doing so, she uttered "nigger" eleven times, albeit not directed at the caller. She discussed the word and its use by blacks and in black media. Her profuse use of the slur was mimicking the frequency of the word's use among black stand-up comics. When Hanson asked, "Is it ever OK to say that word?" Schlessinger responded, "It depends how it’s said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it’s OK."
  • 2008
    Age 61
    In 2008, Talkers Magazine presented her with an award for outstanding community service by a radio talk show host.
    More Details Hide Details Schlessinger was non-religious until she and her son began practicing Conservative Judaism in 1996. In 1998, Schlessinger, Bishop, and their son converted to Orthodox Judaism, and began instruction under Rabbi Reuven P. Bulka of Ottawa, Canada. During this time, Schlessinger sometimes used Jewish law and examples to advise her callers about their moral dilemmas. She occasionally clarified ethical and moral issues with her local Orthodox Rabbi Moshe D. Bryski, before mentioning them on the air. She was embraced by many in the politically conservative segment of Orthodox Judaism for bringing more awareness of Orthodoxy to her radio show. Some of her expressed views were explicitly religious and are referenced her 1999 book The Ten Commandments: The Significance of God's Laws in Everyday Life. Although her other books have stressed the importance of morality, they are more secular in nature.
  • 2007
    Age 60
    In 2007, Schlessinger was given an Exceptional Public Service award by the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense.

    In 2007, Schlessinger began fundraising for Operation Family Fund, an organization which aids the families of fallen or seriously injured veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    She suspended the column in mid 2007, resumed writing it later, then discontinued it in December 2008.
    More Details Hide Details She currently writes columns on her blog, on a variety of topics. Schlessinger has written thirteen books for adults and four for children. Several follow the mold of her successful Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, with similarly named books giving advice for men, couples, and parents, while others are more moral in orientation. For several years, Schlessinger published a monthly magazine, Dr. Laura Perspective. She was the editor, her husband a contributing photographer, and her son the creative consultant. The magazine has since gone out of publication. Schlessinger has a website which contains hints for stay-at-home parents, her blog, a reading list, and streaming audio of her shows (by subscription only). When it was started, 310,000 people tried to access it simultaneously and it crashed. Certain aspects of feminism are often discussed on her website; she was a self-proclaimed feminist in the 1970s, but is now opposed to feminism.

    How sad.” In 2006, Schlessinger wrote that she had been attacked in a "vulgar, inhumane manner by media types" because of the circumstances surrounding her mother's death, and that false allegations had been made that she was unfit to dispense advice based on family values.
    More Details Hide Details She said that she had not mourned the deaths of either of her parents because she had no emotional bond to them. In 1998, Schlessinger was in a Costa Mesa surf shop with her son when she began perusing the skateboarding magazine, Big Brother. On her radio program, Schlessinger declared the magazine to be "stealth pornography." When the owner of the store publicly denied that she found pornography in his store, Schlessinger sued him for lying, claiming that his denial had hurt her reputation. When the case went to court, the judge dismissed her suit, but the shop owner's $4 million defamation countersuit lodged for hurting the reputation of his store was allowed to stand. The suit has since been settled, but the terms of the settlement have not been revealed. In 1998, Schlessinger's early radio mentor, Bill Ballance, sold nude photos of Schlessinger to a company specializing in Internet porn. The photos were taken in the mid-1970s while Schlessinger was involved in a brief affair with the then-married Ballance. Schlessinger sued after the photos were posted on the Internet, claiming invasion of privacy and copyright violation. The court ruled that Schlessinger did not own the rights to the photos. She did not appeal the ruling. She told her radio audience that she was embarrassed, but that the photos were taken when she was going through a divorce and had "no moral authority."
    In 2006, Schlessinger joined the Santa Barbara News-Press, writing bi-weekly columns dealing with Santa Barbara news, as well as general news and cultural issues discussed on her radio show.

    In 2005 and 2008, she was nominated for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, but was not selected.
    More Details Hide Details Schlessinger received a National Heritage award from the National Council of Young Israel in March 2001. She also received the National Religious Broadcasters Chairman's Award, and has lectured on the national conservative circuit. She was the commencement speaker at Hillsdale College in June 2002, and was awarded an honorary degree as a doctor of tradition and culture.

  • 2000
    Age 53
    In 2000, in the episode "The Midterms" on The West Wing, the fictional "Dr. Jenna Jacobs" is scolded by President Bartlet, who criticizes her views on homosexuality, and points out she is not a doctor in any field related to morality, ethics, medicine or theology.
    More Details Hide Details He quotes from the Bible to point out the inconsistency of condemning certain sins but not others. Show creator Aaron Sorkin admitted to modeling Bartlet's diatribe on an anonymous "Letter to Dr. Laura," which was a popular viral email at the time. In 2001, she was portrayed on the claymation show Celebrity Deathmatch on the episode, A Night of Vomit. She was in a fight with Ellen DeGeneres; she lost. Schlessinger is featured as an antagonist in the animated series Queer Duck.
    For several years, Schlessinger wrote a weekly column syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate that was carried in many newspapers, and in Jewish World Review. She discontinued the column in July 2000, citing lack of time due to her upcoming television show.
    More Details Hide Details
    By November 2000, advertisers that had committed to Schlessinger's show had pulled their support due to plummeting ratings.
    More Details Hide Details CBS was displeased enough with the ratings that it began looking to either drop the series or move it to late night slots on its stations within two months of its premiere. Other stations outside of CBS did the same thing, while others moved it to weaker sister stations. Dr. Laura aired its last first-run episode on March 30, 2001, on the stations that continued to air it, with reruns continuing until September 2001. In 2004, Schlessinger said that although there is more money and celebrity in television, it is not as meaningful or intimate as radio, and for her television was a "terrible experience".
    Leading up to the September 11, 2000, premiere of Dr. Laura, Schlessinger created a significant amount of controversy.
    More Details Hide Details In the months before the premiere of her TV show, Schlessinger called homosexuality a "biological error", said that homosexuality was acceptable as long as it was not public, and said that homosexuals should not attempt to adopt children. She regularly compared gay parenting to pedophilia by reiterating her view that "a huge portion of the male homosexual populace is predatory on young boys." Schlessinger was frequently criticized in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual (LGBT) media for these views. Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), an LGBT media watchdog group, began monitoring Schlessinger's on-air comments about LGBT people, posting transcripts of relevant shows on its website. In March 2000, a group of gay activists launched StopDrLaura.com, an online campaign with the purpose of convincing Paramount to cancel Dr. Laura prior to its premiere. The group protested at Paramount studios, stating her views were offensively bigoted. StopDrLaura.com organized protests in 34 cities in the U.S. and Canada, and picked up on an advertiser boycott of the radio and the TV shows started by another grass-roots organization which called itself "Silence Of The Slams" operating its boycott through AOL Hometown.
  • 1999
    Age 52
    In 1999, Schlessinger was parodied as Dr. Nora on the sitcom Frasier.
    More Details Hide Details The character was portrayed as having dogmatic and fundamentalist social views that promoted social conservatism. The character was also shown to have a degree that belies her therapeutic advice and was estranged from her mother.
    In 1999, Schlessinger signed a deal with Paramount Domestic Television to produce a syndicated talk show titled Dr. Laura, which was carried in major markets by CBS's owned and operated stations and in 96% of the nation's markets overall for fall 2000.
    More Details Hide Details This was considered somewhat of a coup for Paramount as they felt that a popular personality such as Schlessinger was could be a spark they needed to sell themselves as a daytime syndication powerhouse rivaling King World and Warner Bros. Television, which distributed the popular The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Rosie O'Donnell Show. Paramount's own daytime syndicated offerings, in the meantime, had not done as well; in the 1999–2000 season alone, two comparable series to the aforementioned shows (Leeza, which was more topical in the vein of Oprah, and The Howie Mandel Show, a variety series much like Rosie) that Paramount had syndicated were cancelled.
  • FORTIES
  • 1994
    Age 47
    Schlessinger began broadcasting a daily show on KFI which was nationally syndicated in 1994 by Synergy, a company owned by Schlessinger and her husband.
    More Details Hide Details In 1997, Synergy sold its rights to the show to Jacor Communications, Inc., for $71.5 million. Later, Jacor merged with Clear Channel Communications and a company co-owned by Schlessinger, Take On The Day, LLC, acquired the production rights. The show became a joint effort between Take On The Day, which produced it, Talk Radio Network, which syndicated and marketed it to radio stations, and Premiere Radio Networks, (a subsidiary of Clear Channel), which provided satellite facilities and handled advertising sales. As of September 2009, Schlessinger broadcast from her home in Santa Barbara, California with KFWB as her flagship station. Podcasts and live streams of the show have been available on her website for a monthly fee, and the show was also on XM Satellite Radio. At its peak, The Dr. Laura Program was the second-highest-rated radio show after The Rush Limbaugh Show, and was heard on more than 450 radio stations. Writing in 1998, Leslie Bennett described the popularity of the show:
  • THIRTIES
  • 1985
    Age 38
    Bishop and Schlessinger married in 1985.
    More Details Hide Details Herman says that Schlessinger told her she was pregnant at the time, which Herman recalls as "particularly joyful because of the happy news." Schlessinger's only child, a son named Deryk, was born in November 1985. Dr. Laura's husband, Lewis G. Bishop, died November 2, 2015, after being ill for 1.5 years. Schlessinger was estranged from her sister for years, and many thought she was an only child. She had not spoken to her mother for 18 to 20 years before her mother's death in 2002 from heart disease. Her mother's remains were found in her Beverly Hills condo approximately two months after she died, and lay unclaimed for some time in the Los Angeles morgue before Schlessinger had them picked up for burial. Concerning the day that she heard about her mother’s death, she said: “Apparently she had no friends and none of her neighbors were close, so nobody even noticed!
  • 1979
    Age 32
    According to her personal friend, Shelly Herman, "Laura lived with Lew for about nine years before she was married to him." "His divorce was final in 1979.
    More Details Hide Details
    By 1979 she was on the air Sunday evenings from 9:00 to midnight on KWIZ in Santa Ana, California.
    More Details Hide Details That year, the Los Angeles Times described her show as dealing with all types of emotional problems, "though sex therapy is the show's major focus". In the late 1980s, Schlessinger was filling in for Barbara De Angelis' noon-time relationship-oriented talk show in Los Angeles on KFI, while working weekends at KGIL in San Fernando. Her big break came when Sally Jessy Raphael began working at ABC Radio, and Maurice Tunick, former Vice-President of Talk Programming for the ABC Radio Networks, needed a regular sub for Raphael's evening personal advice show. Tunick chose Schlessinger to fill in for Raphael.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1975
    Age 28
    In 1975, while working in the labs at USC, she met Lewis G. Bishop, a professor of neurophysiology who was married and the father of three children.
    More Details Hide Details Bishop separated from his wife and began living with Schlessinger the same year. Speaking as one who went through and has personal experience with the social problems associated with such lifestyle choices, Schlessinger has vociferously proclaimed her disapproval of unwed couples "shacking up" and having children out of wedlock, helping others to not make the bad choices in the first place.
    Schlessinger's first appearance on radio was in 1975 when she called in to a KABC show hosted by Bill Ballance.
    More Details Hide Details Impressed by her quick wit and sense of humor, Ballance began featuring her in a weekly segment. Schlessinger's stint on Ballance's show led to her own shows on a series of small radio stations.
  • 1974
    Age 27
    Schlessinger attended Westbury High School and Jericho High School where she showed an interest in science. She received a bachelor's degree from Stony Brook University. Moving to Columbia University for graduate studies, she earned a master's and Ph.D. in physiology in 1974.
    More Details Hide Details Her doctoral thesis was on insulin's effects on laboratory rats. After she began dispensing personal advice on the radio, she obtained training and certification in marriage and family counseling from the University of Southern California, and a therapist's license from the State of California. In addition, she opened up a part-time practice as a marriage and family counselor.
  • 1972
    Age 25

Their divorce was finalized in 1977.
