today in terribleness high school had unprotected sex with four students

Malik Taylor was the dean of the Business of Sports School, a high school in midtown Manhattan. But in May, he resigned after admitting to “inappropriate sexual relations” with four students. And that’s not all: Taylor confessed to sexually harassing students and asking one of them to purchase pot for him. Apparently, Taylor had been using the high school as a place to pick up chicks, propositioning students, commenting on and touching their bodies, and threatening them if they told authorities. Among his indiscretions: Keep reading »

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner resigns over sexual harassment

We’re so used to politicians and bigwigs who refuse to take accountability for their behavior that when somebody does admit they did something wrong, it is kind of … weird.

Amidst allegations that he had groped numerous woman, San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a Democrat, released a public apology on Thursday admitting there was some truth to sexual harassment allegations against him. Admitting “I need help,” the 70-year-old confessed in a DVD provided to the media that “I have reached into my heart and soul and realize I must and will change my behavior.” However, the mayor vehemently maintains he is not guilty of sexual harassment.

Numerous women he has allegedly sexually harassed, including constituents and a former employee, tell a different story. Keep reading »

subway harassment

How do you out-creep a total creepster? It’s a question for the ages, and one that writer Chris Brecheen had often pondered. For years, Brecheen listened to his female friends complain about getting unwanted attention by men on public transportation. No matter what they did — wear headphones, keep their heads down, ignore them –– men would continue to harass them on the subway. In a post on his blog last week, Brecheen addressed the all-too familiar story:

It is the narrative of how men hit on women in public places.  A tired old story if ever there were one.  A story where consent is not a character we actually ever meet, and where the real antagonist is not a person, but rather the way she has been socialized to be polite, to be civil, to not be “such a bitch”. … no matter how much of a Douchasauras Rex HE is being about not picking up the subtle clues.

On a recent subway ride, Brecheen, who lives in San Francisco, witnessed yet another creepster bothering a woman on the train. Despite an empty train car, the headphones she wore and the book she was reading, the man began pestering her with questions: Keep reading »

landen gambill

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is currently facing three investigations by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights over the school’s handling of sexual assault reports.

The issues at UNC first became apparent when rape victim Landen Gambill (pictured here) was found in violation of the school’s honor code and faced the threat of expulsion. (Charges have since been dismissed.) After reporting UNC to the federal government for mishandling sexual assault cases, Gambill was accused of an honor court violation for exhibiting “disruptive or intimidating behavior” towards her alleged rapist, even though she never released his name. UNC eventually dropped the charges, but only after the case received national attention. The school is now under investigation for retaliating against a sexual assault whistleblower, underreporting sexual assault cases, and failing to adjudicate rape at the school.  Keep reading »

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 »
