MIKE RIGGS on feminist awakening through TSA frisking: "I have been doing some soul-searching re my anxiety about having my dick measured by a TSA x-ray machine. And I realized, women go through this everyday. Maybe not the x-ray part, but men are always undressing ladies with their eyes. NOW I HAVE TO GO THROUGH A FEW TIMES A YEAR WHAT WOMEN GO THROUGH EVERYDAY, and suddenly, I am feeling much more feminist and so, so, so angry."

GROPING! It happens to straight dudes too, now, so everybody pay attention. BELOW: Eat a vulva cake for $250; why Barack Obama must divorce Michelle immediately; GW frats investigated for hazing violations:

GENDER NON-CONFORMING INDIVIDUALS sought to participate in the DC Trans Coalition's Needs Assessment project.

THE SCENE from yesterday's DADT protest at the grave of discharged serviceman Sgt. Leonard Matlovich. The tombstone inscription reads: "When I was in the military, they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one."

VEGAN VULVA CAKE: Now available exclusively to munchers in the D.C. area for only $250 a piece. Here's how it happened: "I started learning to make cakes when my younger brother asked me to make his wedding cake. It then occurred to my older brother that I might be able to make a vulva cake for my little brother's bachelor party. I agreed having no idea how I would do it. This is what I came up with. The reactions were overwhelming and absolutely everyone who saw it said I must sell them. . . . I first bake a vegan cake, then carve the cake into a vulva shape, frost and finally cover with fondant and sculpt to look like a vulva."

IN THE WAKE of the stupidest thing ever published, last week edition, Dave Weigel imagines more contrarian Washington Post op-ed ideas. My favorite: "To win re-election, Barack Obama must divorce his wife and find a new spouse more likely to win over the voters Democrats have started to lose. These include white voters, people over 60, and people who like Cindy McCain."

GW FRATS UNDER INVESTIGATION: No one knows exactly why. Campus fraternities Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Delta Gamma, and Kappa Kappa Gamma are all under investigation by the university for "allegations of hazing."

BRIEFLY: Senior boys date freshman girls; woman pretends to be dead mom; Cindy McCain always folds.
