    “This woman rocks.”

    Erm… no this woman sent an unsolicited dick pic to someone. She’s just as much of a jackass as the guy if not more so for her blatant hypocrisy.

    Kaitlyn Hunt was expelled from school and being charged with a felony because she allegedly sexually assaulted a minor. She allegedly sexually assaulted a young girl who wasn’t even old enough to consent. You can argue that she didn’t commit the crime she is accused of. Or you could argue we need to be more [...]

    The Jezebel article…
    http://jezebel.com/294383/have-you-ever-beat-up-a-boyfriend-cause-uh-we-have

    I’m so glad the fine “feminists” (spoiler: they aren’t actually feminists) at Jezebel are standing up for the rights of men when they aren’t beating their boyfriends. I mean, I kind of like the message, but could the messenger be someone a little less evil?

    The only claim I see that is mistaken is the 40% claim. That one doesn’t hold water. It comes from combining the lifetime perp stats with the 12-month stats. Something that you can’t do. What are the other mistakes?

    “We want to make it known that any violent act toward a woman will not be tolerated by the men in the city…We will reinforce that hitting women is not acceptable, and we will learn how to intervene when we see it taking place.” Fuck you Mr. Mayor. Fuck you for telling me that defending [...]

  • Lamech commented on the blog post It doesn’t get more personal than the Violence Against Women Act   1 year, 7 months ago · View

    ” a) explaining why VAWA is obviously constitutional or, even better, b) explaining why constitutionality is clearly a smokescreen for the real motives of those opposing it (as far as I can tell, some mix of misogyny and senseless never-let-Obama-pass-any-legislation contrarianism).” While I am not overly sure about if the VAWA will violate defendant rights [...]

    “In any case, it would still require the would-be victim to maintain constant, never ending vigilance — she’d need to be prepared, in the event of ANYTHING, to push that button. It still puts the onus on the would-be victim, rather than on the would-be rapist, and, thus, you’re probably not going to get much [...]

    A way to make offsite phone recordings would actually be really cool. A couple suggestions: 1) If someone gets called, call the police not your friends. Police have a good chance of actually stopping the guy/gal. Your friends have a good chance of getting themselves killed. 2) Make this more general. This isn’t useful just [...]

    79.2% of male rape victims, in the lifetime category, that fell under the CDC category of “made to penetrate” where victimized by a female. And that category included at least about 80% of male rape victims.

    We don’t know about the perps genders for those who were assaulted in 2009.

    “something tells me none of the other males present during the alleged rape will be charged — despite the fact that they had the power to put an end, or better yet even prevent the entire event. ” How?

    “but simply the fact that people like to hang out with others who are like themselves.”

    If when people think “like themselves” gender or race has any more importance than hair colour you have a serious problem.

    “What sexual assault cases have in common is that they are about power and control of people‘s bodies–but that’s often about it.”

    FTFY. Identifying as something other than “woman” does not magically protect you from sexual assault.

    Notes in the California case: 1) Its only that once specific law which doesn’t include that sort of fraud. The law should be changed, but there are other laws in California that could have used that law. 2) The Court did reach the right decision. We can’t be retroactively making changes to laws for obvious [...]
