Etsy Finally Removes Seller Of “I Only Rape Pregnant Women” T-Shirts

etsy rape tee shirts

Etsy.com has finally removed a seller, “fyourt,” which was selling many, many tee shirts with sexually violent slogans like “I only rape pregnant women” and “Five-year-old slut seeking sugar daddy.”  After public pressure from the Rape Abuse & Incest National Network and other anti-sexual violence activists on a Change.org petition on October 23,  Etsy initially shut down pages for individual tees.  Now the site has just removed the seller entirely, citing violation of the site’s terms of use for not promoting violence.  I commend Etsy for doing the right thing, though I’m not sure why it took a full week.  [RAINN]

Ohio University Student In Hiding After MRA Website Misidentifies Her As A “False Rape Accuser”

Ohio University Student In Hiding After MRA Website Misidentifies Her As A "False Rape Accuser"

Last week, a video which showed a young man giving oral sex to a young woman in public in Athens, Ohio, went viral. Shortly thereafter, the unidentified woman reported that the video — shot on October 12 — actually depicted not a consensual sex act, but a sexual assault. This week, a men’s rights website called Crimes Against Fathers decided to publish the name, address and phone number of the woman they believe is in the video, branding her a liar and “an evil woman,” saying she was lying about being raped. Revealing the identity of an alleged rape victim is terrible enough — but the Ohio University student Crimes Against Fathers has identified as being in the video, Rachel Cassidy (above), says it’s not her in the video and that she’s the target of a witch hunt.

Peter Nolan, the man behind Crimes Against Fathers, told The New York Daily News in an email, “I believe that it is VERY likely Rachel Cassidy is the woman in the now viral video. … There are a great deal of similarity in looks between the woman in the video/photos and Rachel Cassidy.” In his post identifying Cassidy as the woman in the video — a connection made initially by members of 4Chan — Nolan says it’s “very clear” that the sex act in the viral video “was fully VOLUNTARY.” Aside from a physical resemblance, Nolan, who lives in Germany, offers no further proof that the woman is actually Cassidy.
