We know Mel Gibson likes beavers. But the star has a terribly sexist attitude towards other ladyparts — breasts, to be exact.
A week ago we were all shocked and appalled by an audiotape in which Mel allegedly screamed at his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, “You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers it would be your fault.” (And yes, that’s not if she “is” raped, but if she “gets” raped.)
That wasn’t the last of Mel’s Reign Of Boob Terror. In the sixth alleged Mel/Oksana audiotape, released earlier this week, he is screaming at Oksana about her breasts yet again. Keep reading »
Roman Polanski will walk free: Switzerland has denied the United States’ request to extradite the filmmaker on a 1977 rape charge. Back then, Polanski served 42 days of a 90 day sentence after he plead guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse for providing a Quaalude and champagne to a 13-year-old girl, who he then raped. When a judge voiced an intention to send him back to prison, Polanski fled the country and has lived in Europe ever since. Keep reading »
In a new feature called “Dear Wendy Updates,” people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Survivor in Indiana,” who was wondering if/how/when she should tell her boyfriend of three months she’d been date raped in her last serious relationship. Did she tell him? Are they still together? How is she doing today? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
While women have historically been subjected to all sorts of poking and prodding to see if their innocence is still intact, there has been no such comparable test for men. Until now. A woman in Vietnam claims to have a simple way to determine if a man still has his V-card. Pham Thi Hong, a medical practitioner in Hanoi, claims that men who are virgins have small red spots on the backs of their ears that disappear once they’ve done the deed. Oooookay. I wonder if there’s a scientific reason for that. And if so, why are we just hearing about this now? Keep reading »
Bruce Tuck, an alleged serial rapist, is whining that authorities tricked him into confessing. Evidently, they put the 275-pound dude on a lettuce-only diet and then tempted him with a bag of chips in exchange for information. Tuck also said that he might not be mentally competent (can’t argue with that), claimed he was never read his Miranda rights, and insisted that detectives had another “person of interest” that they didn’t bother pursuing. Probably because there was his DNA at the scene of the crimes? Tuck pled guilty in December to three sexual assaults and 21 possible felony charges including rape, kidnapping, burglary, and robbery. He was arrested at his parents’ home, surrounded by items taken during the attacks … but insists cops didn’t have a warrant or his parents’ permission to search the house. Tuck faces a 60-year sentence.
Boo-hoo. Let’s call this guy a wahmbulance. Keep reading »
“I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously. And I’m really sorry about my choice of words. ‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought. People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.”
— Kristen Stewart pulls her foot out of her mouth after comparing paparazzi photos to rape in British Elle magazine. K-Stew played a rape victim in the 2004 film, “Speak,” based on a great young adult book by Laurie Halse Anderson about a teen girl who stops speaking after she is raped at a party. Stewart has also filmed public service announcements for sexual assault awareness groups the Rape And Incest National Network and for Security On Campus. Now, can we all please move on and be pissed off at actual rapists instead? [People] Keep reading »
