  1. Apparently there had been a "Predators's Club" at Dartmouth University and the school looked the other way.
  2. An Iowa State University student from Spain was assaulted and murdered. I know this makes me an awful person, but I'm just going to come right out and say it. I don't see the likes of Steve King, Kim Reynolds, Joni Ernst, Chuck Grassley, or all those reich wing dumb fucks giving a shit about this young woman whose life came to a violent end.
  3. In Texas I hope they put this bastard in a cave so deep he has to look up to see hell.
  4. I was inspired to start this thread after reading this article on the progressive double standard on Bill Clinton versus Harvey Weinstein or Donald Trump from Jacobin, a democratic socialist magazine: https://jacobinmag.com/2017/10/bill-clinton-harvey-weinstein-sexual-assault However, this is a subject that I have been thinking about ever since Monicagate in the 1990s when I was in high school. I was never comfortable with how mainstream feminists threw Monica Lewinsky under the bus (see the NYT op-ed piece by Gloria Steinem references in the link). I get that from a political perspective, the idea was probably that it was better that sacrifice Lewinsky to prevent Republicans from enacting anti-woman policies, but i hate the idea that some women are considered disposable while others are to be pushed into prominence. In any case, the question that the article raises is very valid: would liberals and progressives be as sanguine about the allegations against Bill Clinton if the subject of these rumors was some other guy (eg Clarence Thomas, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Josh Duggar, Donald Trump)? If we claim to take sexual harassment seriously, shouldn’t that mean doing so even when it may politically hurt us to do so? To me, the underlying problem is patriarchy. It doesn’t matter how one identifies politically or how much money one give to charity or political causes. If a man thinks that women only exist as objects for his gratification and knows he can get away with assault and harassment because of his position, he’ll do it. And the overarching societal system is structured in such a way that discourages people, whether male or female, from standing up to men in authority. I know that talking about patriarchy in public is even less popular than talking about white supremacy, but unless we deal with the underlying causes of these serial abusers, these scandals will just keep happening.
  5. Many of you may know that the D.C. Police kettled (i.e. Indiscriminately arrested) over 200 people during Trump's inauguration, including members of the press and street medics. Although the D.C. Police are supposedly one of the better forces when it comes to respecting the freedoms of protesters, there is ample evidence to suggest otherwise, especially now that some J20 defendants are claiming that they were raped and sexually assaulted after being kettled: https://thinkprogress.org/aclu-sees-dc-cops-over-inauguration-arrests-971b821c9480 It speaks volumes about our twisted values as a country when people are more outraged by a smashed Starbucks window than rapist cops.

    Sexual assault at Gordon College

    I'm not sure if anyone else has made a post about this so feel free to move it mods. Reading This article about sexual assault and rape being swept under the rug is so familiar. https://www.google.com/amp/www.nydailynews.com/amp/news/national/students-christian-college-reports-sexual-assault-article-1.3343109
  7. I just saw this on my Facebook feed, and I didn't see this mentioned yet. http://www.ocregister.com/2017/05/03/trinity-broadcasting-network-trial-did-1st-family-of-christian-broadcasting-cover-up-13-year-old-granddaughters-alleged-rape/
  8. A Connecticut Republican has been arrested for sexual assault. rawstory.com/2017/01/conn-republican-arrested-for-grabbing-womans-genitals-his-lawyer-says-it-was-a-playful-gesture/ Yeah and von Keyserling's lawyer is being a real fornicate face about this too, calling sexual assault a "jocular moment."
  9. Ugh. buzzfeed.com/tylerkingkade/georgia-bill-would-stop-colleges-from-carrying-out-rape-inve And this idiot is all excited about Donald J. Putinfluffer and how said Putinfluffer is going to destroy Title IX. I'd call him a fucking pig but that would be insulting to pigs.
  10. Life is increasingly making no sense. How is it possible to molest a baby, on film, no less, and get no jail time? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/true-crime/wp/2016/09/19/teen-pleads-guilty-to-sexual-abuse-of-a-1-year-old-girl-then-a-judge-gives-him-no-prison-time/ It seems like the perpetrator was manipulated into the act by older adults online, but even so, he should have realized that what he was doing was wrong.

    Bill Cosby

    I'm surprised this went by the wayside for so long...14 women (only one who got a monetary settlement) claiming he was a serial rapist (would drug womens' drinks then have sex with them). I remember the original allegations but they got smoothed over, butwin the wake of a comedian mentioning them and Jian Ghomeshi (Canada) they're coming out again. Sad. I believe the women, one of whom recently came out to CNN about an assault in '69. Now Janice Dickinson weighs in http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/1 ... 81808.html
  12. A former Arkansas Pastor has been charged with 70 counts of child porn, though said to be very anti LGTB. http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2016/may/10/former-arkansas-pastor-faces-70-child-pornography-/?f=news Another pastor is accused of sexual assaulting two teen girls in his congregation. http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2016/may/12/avoca-pastor-accused-sexually-assaulting-teen-cong/
  13. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/apr/27/oral-sex-rape-ruling-tulsa-oklahoma-alcohol-consent?CMP=twt_gu Here is the article that just left me stunned. To sum up, a teenage girl was drunk, passed out, and a teenage boy orally raped her. He was charged and a judge said the state's law on consent/rape doesn't cover oral offenses. This IS 2016, right?!
  14. This is all over social media here at the moment: On New Years Eve dozens of women were insulted, robbed, assaulted - and at least in one case even raped - by some sort of mega gang at the central station in the German city of cologne. BCC article: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35231046
  15. I used to love to listen to Radio Q, and Jian Ghomeshi's interviews with rock stars, authors, etc. It was on public Canadian radio out of Toronto. Then he was accused of being violent towards several different girlfriends, fired from his show, and put on trial. He claimed he was into "rough sex," but what was described did not come across as consensual to me. Three women testified against him. He hired a female lawyer known for ruthlessness, who basically put the women testifying against him on trial. So now he was found not guilty. What does everyone think? I have mixed feelings, but I usually believe that women don't put themselves through the trauma of a trial unless something pretty bad happened. http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2016/03/24/jian_ghomeshi_found_not_guilty_of_sexual_assault_in_shocking_proclamation.html
  16. Not sure if this is the right forum but must share my outrage!! The mayor of Port of Spain in Trinidad is (thankfully) coming under international scrutiny for his victim blaming comments prior to Carnival when he essentially said women's outfits and lewdness durung the season led to their being assualted. Comments which he then reiterated after a female Japanese visitor who played mas with a local band was found murdered on Ash Wednesday. Hopefully the misogynistic prick will lose his position over this. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/02/12/outrage-in-trinidad-after-mayor-blames-carnival-killing-on-dancers-lewd-behavior/ I thought I put this in Quiverful of Misogyny! Sorry mods!
