During the afternoon, a woman arrived and said the boy had been punished enough. She left at 3.45pm, but Symons then twice raped the boy before his family returned at 7pm.

Feminists Recruiting Veteran Suicide for Their Issue Stable — Feminists must have every issue as their own. Domestic abuse, health, education, STDs, sex, beauty standards, workplace treatment, pay, and even sleep have all been claimed by feminists. Even non-issues majestically transform into feminist issues. But that’s what happens when an industry like feminism feeds on trumped up charges of misery and inequality. Feminists are paid to find these things, and they’ll root them out like truffle-sniffing piglets. For men to challenge that we suffer in any of these categories leads to crybaby taunts and penis-size speculations.
Funding fears threaten future of male abuse service — MALE victims of rape and sexual abuse face losing a “lifeline” service due to funding fears. Forty-eight males have received support from the South West Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Centre in Dumfries. But the 18-month old service may be forced to close. Director Iraina McGroatry told the Standard: “Men rely on our service but we are quickly running out of funding. “I don’t know if we will be able to offer the same level of support next year as we do now. If that is the case, then it would be a travesty.”

Jokes That Aren’t Funny: Prisoner Rape — Before Thanksgiving, I joked that many men would not object to the TSA pat-down procedure if it were administered by Victoria’s Secret supermodels. It is obviously true, and I meant it not to objectify women but to mock men. Still, a faithful reader objected that I was making light of something serious, and that our standards of holiness had declined. Perhaps he’s right – but that’s not the point. It got me thinking. About the right and wrong uses of humor. The value of humor in bringing light into dark situations. And yet the danger of using humor in a way that degrades what is truly sacred and valuable.
Juvenile Hall counselor faces 46 molestation counts on top of child porn charges — A Juvenile Hall counselor facing charges of possessing what authorities described as a vast amount of child pornography — so much that the FBI is helping to examine it — is now accused of victimizing a young boy depicted in some of the images. “We believe there are and will be additional victims,” said deputy district attorney Dana Filkowski.

The court heard Ms Gale met the boy and his mother through their involvement in a suburban football club.
Young prisoners used as sex slaves in the central jail — Prison ought to be a correctional facility or a place to reform law-breakers. However, to the contrary, prisons in the city are certain to make hardened criminals and serial offenders out of first-time law breakers and those jailed for petty crime. Startling details emerging from the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, located on the outskirts of the city, confirms this view. More than 25 per cent of inmates in the 18-21 years age group have rectal damage due to sexual abuse. These youngsters are constantly sodomised by hardened criminals, with whom they are forced to share space in the overcrowded prison.
