TJ Kirk, the Amazing Atheist, explains in explicit detail precisely what is wrong with the fantasy narrative that women raping men is “awesome”:
In a move of stunning stupidity, Judge E. Scott Bradley sentenced former cheerleader Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck to two years of probation for fourth-degree rape. Well, that is not entirely accurate:
Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck was sentenced Friday to two years of probation, with every other weekend in custody, after pleading guilty to raping a 15-year-old boy at a vacation rental home in Delaware.
Shattuck could have received 15 years, but for some bizarre reason Bradley decided that alternating weekends in jail, therapy, and registering as a sex offender was punishment. That is one massive slap on the wrist consider Shattuck originally faced two counts of third-degree rape, four counts of unlawful sexual contact, and three counts of providing alcohol to minors.
Some people may consider this an overreaction consider that the act in question was oral sex. However, one must look how this happened: Continue reading
One of the common mantras used by the far left is that we as a society “need” something. This thing typically is not an actual necessity. It is never food, water, air, clothing, education, or the like. It is usually something trivial and pertains to the progressive ideology. For example, take Bustle’s recent article titled Why Being A Geek Also Means Being A Feminist, Because Why Should Guys Have All The Fun?
Shaun Fitzpatrick regales readers with her insights about the importance of feminism in the geek community. One knows it will be a rather pedantic escapade when an article begins with:
As I write this, I am currently wearing a button down, a pair of suspenders, and have a bow-tie and fez in my backpack (I’m waiting to get out of work and dress up for a Doctor Who exhibit at a local spot). I feel a little bit like Clark Kent, hiding my nerdy superpowers from an office full of unsuspecting co-workers. Not that I’m really that interested in hiding. I am a geek, a fangirl, a card carrying, feels-having, obsessive devotee toward a select group of shows, movies, and books that have captured my heart and imagination and make me incapable of shutting up if someone mentions them in my presence.
But I’m also a pretty outspoken feminist, which at times can seem like a conundrum.
It is a conundrum, although not for the reason Fitzpatrick thinks. The issue is the “but” in her sentence. The word “but” is a term of negation. It implies that the clause preceding it is untrue in part or in whole. By stating that she is a geek, but also a feminist, Fitzpatrick implies that being a geek is anathema to being a feminist. I would agree. The two do not go well together. Fitzpatrick explains why: Continue reading
I do enjoy how media outlets discuss women’s sexual violence against boys. This was the title of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s article on a recent child rape case: Melbourne woman who fell pregnant to 12yo boy jailed for sexual abuse.
Let us see how this woman “fell” pregnant:
The 40-year-old woman, who cannot be named, was sentenced at the Victorian County Court on Monday to at least three years and six months in prison.
The woman had pleaded guilty to the persistent sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16 over her relationship with the boy, who was her daughter’s friend.
In 2011 the woman, who was in her 30s, began driving her daughter and the boy to school.
The woman has admitted she started developing feelings for the boy and began a sexual relationship with him.
The pair had sex once a week over a five-month period and did not use condoms, the court was told.
That does not sound like the woman accidentally became pregnant. It sounds like she intentionally had sex with a child. There is a word for that: rape. Continue reading
I must admit I am impressed when sex offenders surprise me with their excuses. After a decade of dealing with these stories, I figure I have seen it all. However, every now and again someone manages to say or do something I would never expect. Case in point:
Nicole Porter faces statutory rape charges after getting a 13-year-old boy drunk and raping him. According to the victim, Porter and her roommate forced him to drink alcohol and threatened to hurt him if he refused:
Once he was drunk, the boy told investigators that Porter took him to her room where she took off her clothes. She then choked and pinned the boy down on the bed and forced him to have sex with her, court documents state.
Porter denied raping the boy and claimed her roommate provided the alcohol. Even if that were true, unfortunately for Porter her own journal makes the situation look worse: Continue reading
1 in 3 Victims of Family Violence Are Male — Family First NZ says that research in association with the Department of Internal Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Association of New Zealand and the Canterbury Men’s Centre has found that 38% of recent victims of family violence in the Canterbury region have been male and that male victims are not gaining support. The researcher says that media coverage has only focused on female victims and that there is reluctance for men to speak up.
Boy Scouts sue insurer over sex-abuse settlements — The Boy Scouts of America is taking legal action against a unit of a leading property/casualty insurer, claiming the company refused to provide insurance coverage for settlements of child sex-abuse cases from the late 1970s. The organization alleges that National Union Fire Insurance Company – a Pittsburg unit of American International Group – neither defended nor settled the claims that were brought by sex abuse victims from 1975 to 1980 and totaled about $60 million.
Colorado GOP Legislator Implies Gay Boy Scout Leaders Should Be Drowned — Colorado State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt (R-Colorado Springs), in Monday’s edition of his online video series called “Pray in Jesus’ Name,” urged his viewers to pull their children out of the Boy Scouts because “homosexual men mentoring and camping” with boys “will lead to child abuse.” “The children are in danger,” said Klingenschmitt, a first-term Republican. “It’s not about the sexual pleasure of the adults. It should be about protecting innocent children.”
Convicted paedophile caught with thousands of child abuse images — A convicted paedophile, who had been released early from a three-year prison sentence for sexually abusing a 14-year-old-girl, was caught with thousands of child abuse images. Kenneth Cooper, 60, of Magnon Court, Leighton Buzzard, shared 500 of the pictures and movies with other perverts, Luton Crown Court heard on Tuesday. After hearing that Cooper had also been convicted of having indecent images of children in 2004, Judge David Farrell QC said that he regarded him as posing a significant risk of causing sexual harm to children.

A 34-year-old woman from Norwich faces years in prison after a juror found her guilty of 23 sex crimes. What makes Marie Black’s case unusual is that she played a pivotal role in the child sex ring:
Opening the trial, prosecutor Angela Rafferty QC said Black, previously known as Marie Adams, played an instrumental role in using the children as sexual play-things.
The abuse, which is said to have happened in and around Norwich and London, included forcing the children to have sex with one another.
On some occasions, the adults threw parties and played card games to decide who would abuse which child, Mrs Rafferty said.
In interviews the victims described how they were abused in front of one another and other adults. Some of the abuse involved children’s toys, including Barbie dolls.
Black denied all the charges, claiming that she was being “stitched up.” Continue reading
