The ongoing trial of Li Tianyi, a 17-year-old boy accused of participating in the gang rape of a woman in Beijing, spurred some vomit-inducing comments from Yi Yanyou, a professor at Tsinghua University. As the blog Shanghaiist reported, in defending the accused rapist, Yanyou posted to his Weibo account that since “a bargirl, a dancing girl, an escort or a prostitute” is more likely to consent to sex, it isn’t as bad to rape them.

In 1977, the filmmaker Roman Polanski asked the mother of a 13-year-old girl named Samantha Gailey if he could photograph her daughter for French Vogue. The mom agreed and the young girl privately posed topless for the famous director, which she later said made her feel uncomfortable.  In a second private photo session with Polanski at the Los Angeles home of Jack Nicholson, he offered her champagne and a qualude while he photographed her. Polanski then raped her vaginally, anally and orally while she repeatedly asked him to stop.

Samantha Gailey, who now goes by Samantha Geimer, is now publishing a memoir, The Girl: A Life In The Shadow Of Roman Polanski Keep reading »

Internet Porn Keyboard

David Cameron, British Prime Minister, has announced that every household will now be blocked from viewing online porn and other adult materials unless they specify that they would like the block to be removed. He has also announced that it is now a criminal offense to possess porn that depicts rape or simulated rape, reports the Daily Mail.

These laws are an attempt to clean up the internet and block children from accessing violent porn on the internet without their parents’ knowledge. The laws also hope to at least decrease the amount of rape-depicting porn available to people. By the end of the year, all new customers setting up an Internet account will have to select whether or not they would like adult content to be available. Having the block on adult material will be the default setting. David Cameron said, “We are taking action to help clean up the internet and protect a generation of children from often extreme online pornography.” Keep reading »

Rape Within Relationships

I was always utterly convinced that I was stronger and more logically driven than the average woman when it came to dealing with relationships. I remember reading stories about women who stayed with men after being hurt by them; who made excuses for a man’s violation or abuse, swatting away any logical notion of leaving and taking their dignity with them. For what? Validation? I never understood what the hell that was supposed to mean. Rather than reaching out to friends, family or professionals for help, you stick around to be validated by the very person that took something from you? That, and all the other obscure, irrational reasons that are so often cited. I was convinced that I was far too strong and sensible to ever stick around after being treated poorly. I’d turn and leave the asshole to fester in his guilt … at the very least.

Well, when it happened to me I didn’t leave. As for excuses? I made a trillion of them. Keep reading »
