Today’s Lady News: Sexual Abuse Arrest At Occupy Wall Street

Today's Lady News
  • A 26-year-old named Tonye Iketubosin has been arrested and charged with sexual abuse of an 18-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl. The 18-year-old reported said Iketubosin raped her inside a tent at Occupy Wall Street, where he is volunteering at the protest as a kitchen worker, early Sunday morning. That girl had an argument with her tent-mate in the middle of the night on Saturday and Iketubosin offered to let her sleep in his tent. She fell asleep and woke up to him raping her. The 17-year-old said Iketubosin helped her set up her tent on Thursday night and the next morning she found him groping her, until she pushed him away. I certainly am not making this story the lead item in Today’s Lady News to suggest all, or even most, people at Occupy Wall Street are bad guys. But I am including it to make the point that even so-called “liberals” or “progressives” commit sexual violence against women. [Gothamist]

Axe, you’ve outdone yourself with this Spanish-language ad. The transcript for this train wreck — which aired in Argentina, a country that apparently has a holiday called Boyfriend’s Day — after the jump. Keep reading »

Protest Today Against Facebook’s Rape Jokes

There’s a lot of dodginess on Facebook (status “updates” from your sister’s fetus, hello) but there’s one thing we cannot tacitly approve by ignoring — rape jokes such as:

  • “Kicking Sluts in the Vagina”
  • “Whats 10 inches and gets girls to have sex with me? my knife” 
  • “I know a silly little bitch that needs a good slap”
  • “We’re gonna have sex tonight” “Why?” “Because im stronger than you are”

Yes, some immature, insensitive people post rape jokes or create pages with themes about raping, stabbing, or threatening their girlfriends and moms.  That hate speech is bad enough, but alas, you are allowed under the First Amendment to be a douchebag.

The real question is, though, why is Facebook permitting jokes about sexual violence? Keep reading »

Topics to be covered: her butt, her famous sister, making dirty sweet monkey love with Prince Hot Ginge. Just kidding. Pippa’s book will be about the decidedly more meh topic of party planning.

Today’s Lady News: “Why You’re Not Married” To Become TV Show

  • Last year the internet was pissed off at a Huffington Post blog post by “Mad Men” writer Tracy Terry McMillan entitled “Why You’re Not Married,” which let us all in on the secret that men don’t like bitches, liars and sluts. The piece should have crawled back under the rock from which it spawned. But alack, alas, ABC is turning it into a sitcom.  [Clutch Magazine]
