Gun Manufacturer In India Exploits Rape Fears With New Purse-Sized Revolver

todays lady news
  • A gun manufacturer in India has built a small revolver that can fit inside a purse in the hopes that women can use it if they’re about to be victims of a sexual attack. But it’s priced at around $2,000, meaning that only relatively wealthy Indian women will be able to protect themselves this way. Clearly the much more important thing to prioritize is changing men’s attitudes and behaviors towards women. [TIME]

Leader Of New Zealand’s “Roast Busters” Rape Gang Goes Into Hiding

Leader Of New Zealand's "Roast Busters" Rape Gang Goes Into Hiding

Joseph Parker, one of the leaders of that indefensible group of New Zealand gang rapists who call themselves the Roast Busters, has skipped town after allegedly receiving threats towards himself and his family. After the international media spotlight shown down upon he and his crew’s revolting habit of luring in teenage girls, getting them drunk, gang raping them and then bragging about it online, Parker, 18, apparently did not take well to his newfound fame and used his family’s money (his dad is an actor who was in “The Matrix”) to get the hell out of dodge.

Two Girls Who Were Raped By New Zealand's "Roast Busters" Were Reportedly Told They Were "Asking For It" By Police

Yesterday, we told you about the “Roast Busters,” a disgusting sort of “club” in New Zealand where the members are privileged teen boys who lure teenage girls with alcohol, get them drunk, gang rape them and then brag about the rapes on the internet. While there is plenty of the latter on the internet to build a case file against the, New Zealand police have argued they just can’t pursue charges against them until one of their victims comes forward.

Except, it turns out, a victim has gone to the police. Two, in fact. Two 13-year-old girls filed complaints against the Roast Busters with the police two years ago, in 2011. One of the girls, who said she was raped by three of the Roast Busters, told NZ’s 3 News that she was so ashamed and scared that it took her weeks to tell anyone, and when she finally went to police, this is what went down: Keep reading »
