liz jones says rihanna invites rape
  • Granted, the UK’s Daily Mail (aka the Daily Fail) is not the place you go to read nuanced, tasteful analysis, but writing that Rihanna “surely invites rape [and] disrespect” by wearing provocative clothes is a new low. Writer Liz Jones also said it’s “fair” to “berate female stars” more than young male ones because “young women are far more impressionable than young men.” No citation for that ‘fact,’ of course! Jones additionally bopped Rihanna for her “fake hair” and “false nails” and for trying to portray herself “as ‘real,’ as ‘street.’” Oh STFU, lady! [Daily Mail UK]

woman with police officer

A standard traffic stop over a broken headlight turned into sexual abuse in Florida when a Lakeland police officer asked Zoe Brugger to lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her chest, and shake it. He then decided that the first time had not been sufficient, so she was made to do it again. The best part?

He had literally no reason to have her do this.   Keep reading »

north carolina advances anti-abortion bill

“From the other side of the aisle I hear the conversation being about ‘free this is free, we need to take it and it’s free and we need to do it now’ and that’s sort of the fundamental message that my brain receives. Now, my brain being a man’s brain sort of thinks differently, because I say, well, it’s not if it’s free is it really free because I say in my brain there’s a cost to this.”

Maine’s Republican Party, aka the manly party of manly men, has a star amongst them: State Representative Ken Fredette, who thinks the Democratic party is comprised of girly-men and actual girls (EW!) who just don’t understand how health care costs work. We can’t just give things away for free, you dumb broads! How about don’t worry your pretty little heads about finances and leave that to the menfolk? [Talking Points Memo]

Even the prime minister of Australia is not immune of objectification and body-snarking: at a political fundraising dinner Julia Gillard was reduced to the significance of the quail served up for dinner with an absurdly offensive menu item listed “Julia Gillard Quail – small breasts, huge thighs, and a big red box” as the main entrée.

I hear a lot of weird shit on the street. Many people, apparently, feel that they have license to say whatever they so please to me. Generally, it doesn’t bother me, but “sweetie”’ is where I draw the line.

The other day I walked to grab a coffee and held the door for a respectable-looking gentleman who was also leaving the building. “Thank you, sweetie!” He replied. I know he was just trying to be nice, but I am an adult leaving my place of work for a coffee break. In what way did it strike this man as appropriate to call me his “sweetie”? Keep reading »

cop sexual assault video
Disgusting

This video is extremely disturbing. It’s a KLAS-TV Las Vegas news clip featuring a woman named Monica Contreras, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a court marshal and then arrested on false premises when she complained about it to judge (hearing master) Patricia Donninger.

Here’s what happened: Contreras was in Clark County family court in August 2011, with her two-year-old daughter, finalizing a divorce case. Then she was suddenly taken, by herself, into a room with court marshal Ron Fox to be searched for drugs. (There is no explanation given for why the search was needed.) During the search, the 28-year-old alleged the marshal touched her breasts, her butt and asked her to pull up her shirt. Then, Contreras walked back into the courtroom where Donniger sat, politely said she felt uncomfortable and “offended” by Fox’s requests to lift up her shirt, and that if she needed to be body-searched, could it be done by a woman. Patricia Donninger ignored her. Then Fox suddenly instructed another cop on duty to arrest her for “making false allegations against a police officer.”

But, as KLAS explains, there is no law about making false allegations against a police officer. It’s a bullshit charge he just made up because she was accusing him of sexual assault. And there is also no law that allows a police officer accused of sexual assault to arrest the accuser. Keep reading »
