“Spontaneous ejaculation,” supposedly a medical condition, is no excuse for acting like a creep! A Singapore judge ruled recently against 28-year-old Chong Weien, who got nabbed splooging on a fellow student’s thigh in 2006. Ew! Weien, who is also a National University of Singapore student (in psychology, ha), was riding a bus when he pressed his crotch up against some chick’s thigh and blew his load. She took him to court for an “outrage of modesty,” which the judge agreed with, despite testimony from two doctors who said Weien does indeed suffer from a “spontaneous ejaculation” problem. Hmm, maybe it was the fact that creepy Weien was jailed for 15 months and caned three times in 2002 for a similar conviction? [Straights Times, hat tip to True/Slant]

Salon.com’s Broadsheet blog wonders if it’s fair for people to know the name of the Hofstra University student who falsely accused five men of gang rape.

I don’t want to further deter real rape victims from bringing their rapist to justice. And that’s why I won’t be printing the Hofstra accuser’s name.” Do you agree? [Salon.com Broadsheet]
