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 »

Men will rape us no matter, apparently! So if won’t don’t want to get sexually assaulted, us ladies have to “give up over drinking [sic].”

This is according to a facepalm-y new column in Southern Methodist University The Daily Campus newspaper by someone named Kirby Wiley.   ”In order to prevent future victims, viewers need to know the other side of things,” Wiley writes.   The other side of things, in case you’re not picking up what I’m putting down, is that drunk women are deserving of some of the blame here.

Oh hell to the no.

University College London’s Student Union Bans “Blurred Lines”

blurred lines

“Blurred Lines” is, like, so three months ago. But that hasn’t stopped the student union at University College London (UCLU) from banning the song from playing at school events.

Like the University of Edinburgh — another college that banned the song along with five other UK schools — the student union at UCLU believes Robin Thicke’s catchy ditty glorifies date rape and thus isn’t appropriate for the school to play. Said Susana Antubam, a campus Woman’s Officer, “[The song is] a monstrosity of phrases rapists have been known to use against victims.” In fact, according to the BCC, a DJ had to apologize recently because he played  ”Blurred Lines” at the school’s Frat Party night event.

Horrible Rape Joke Goes Viral On Twitter

This. This is an example of a not funny rape joke. And yet it’s one that many, many people have posted or retweeted on Twitter, without criticism, thereby lending their tacit approval of the statement that rape is somehow flattering. The Tumblr blog Fucking Rape Culture is keeping a list of all those who tweeted the joke without calling out its offensiveness, writing, “none of these people will mind at all if you hit them in the face with a spade; after all, it’s flattering that you’re risking jail to hit them (or possibly kill them…).” That post has over 118,000 notes on it, so that’s one reason not to give up all hope for humanity.
