Tonya Cooley, who appeared on MTV‘s “The Real World: Chicago,” is suing two of her male cast members on “The Real World/Road Rules Challenge” for allegedly raping her with a toothbrush. According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Tonya is suing Kenneth “Kenny” Santucci and Evan Starkman for allegedly taking a fourth cast member’s toothbrush and rubbing it against her labia while she was passed out (which I’m assuming means drunk, not asleep). Kenneth and Evan also put the toothbrush inside her vagina, which is sexual assault.   Keep reading »

Dallas Rapist Targeting Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Girls

A serial rapist in Dallas is apparently targeting alumnae of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, a Dallas newspaper reports. Over the past eleven months, four black women in their 50s and 60s who are alumnae of DST in the Dallas area have been victims of home invasions between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. All were raped by seemingly the same suspect. Each woman said the rapist seemed to know personal information about them, which might suggest he’s targeting them through some kind of affiliation they all have. As such, the Plano, Texas, police department is warning DST alumnae (a predominantly black sorority) that arapist is afoot.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to see this anti-rape campaign poster from Rape Crisis Scotland posted everywhere. (Thanks to commenter EscapeHatches for sending along!) [Rape Crisis Scotland UK] Keep reading »

Any story of rape, whether it happens to a man, woman or child, is horrific and tragic. This particular story has the distinction of being horrific, tragic and weird: three women in Zimbabwe have been charged with sexually assaulting male hitchhikers and collecting condoms filled with semen. The women had 33 jizz-laden condoms, which police say were acquired during 17 different sexual assaults over the past two years.

So, what the hell is going on? Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Sexual Assault Case Vs. DSK In France Dropped

Today's Lady News
  • France dropped a sexual assault inquiry against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, over lack of evidence and statute of limitations. Tristane Banon, a writer, claimed Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her back in 2003, when she came to interview him at a Paris apartment building. In a statement, police said, “What came to light is that, while there is not enough evidence to pursue on a count of attempted rape, there are elements that can be qualified as sexual assault.” However, nothing will be pursued because the statute of limitations has passed. This alleged incident came to light after DSK was accused of forcing oral sex on a woman across the pond: In May, a New York City hotel maid accused DSK of sexually assaulting her when she came to clean his room. The criminal charges were later dropped by prosecutors when past lies made by the housekeeper, Nafissatou Diallo, on her immigration/asylum paperwork were found to be untrue and she was deemed untrustworthy. He is still facing a civil lawsuit by Diallo in the Bronx, where she lives. [NY Times] Keep reading »

I, predictably, love Johnny Depp. But I am not really feeling his casual way with words in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently, in an interview with Nick Tosches, Johnny seeks to show the extent to which he dislikes photo shoots. “Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man,” he says. “Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” [NY Post]

Johnny apparently didn’t get the message that comparing things that aren’t sexual assault to sexual assault is hugely insensitive and just wrong. How we wished he’d learned from these celebs who did it before him.

A gift from me to you, A Handy-Dandy Guide On Things Not To Do If You’re A Cop — Or Anyone — Talking To Women About Sexual Assault When A Serial Rapist Is Afoot:

  1. Suggest that wearing a skirt, shorts, or dress is just asking for it.
  2. That’s it.

Unfortunately, the NYPD did not get that memo. Women in areas of Brooklyn — which has been ground zero for a serial rapist/groper throughout the spring,  summer and fall — report that NYPD officers have stopped them on the street and offered unsolicited victim-blaming sartorial advice. One 25-year-old who identified herself as Lauren to the Wall Street Journalsaid she was stopped by a cop while wearing shorts. “He pointed at my outfit and said, ‘Don’t you think your shorts are a little short?’” Lauren told the WSJ. “He pointed at [other women's] dresses and said they were showing a lot of skin. He said that such clothing could make the suspect think he had ‘easy access.’”

Oh, for f**k’s sake.

Today’s Lady News: FBI Definition Of “Rape” Criticized

How Roman Polanski ruined my Thanksgiving. Read More »
  • The FBI’s working definition of “rape” was roundly criticized on Friday at a meeting of police chiefs, sex crime investigators, and victims’ advocates. The definition of rape used by the FBI is “the carnal knowledge of a female, forcibly and against her will.” But that definition does not take into account sexual assault cases where the victim was penetrated against their will orally, anally, with an object, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and male victims. Therefore, the number of sexual assaults released by the FBI’s annual crime report are drastically under-reported. In response, the FBI has agreed that the definition of “rape” should be revised. A subcommittee will take up the issue at an Oct. 18 meeting. [New York Times]
  • Filmmaker Roman Polanski has apologized, sort of, to the woman he  drugged and sodomized as a 13-year-old girl. “She is a double victim: my victim and a victim of the press,” Polanski told reporters at the Zurich Film Festival. That’s probably as good as it’s going to get, sadly. [Videogum]
