TJ Kirk, the Amazing Atheist, explains in explicit detail precisely what is wrong with the fantasy narrative that women raping men is “awesome”:

Christian Stephen wrote an in-depth article on Ryot about the systemic rape of Afghanistan’s boys.
I first wrote about the dancing boys (“bacha bazi”) in 2007. Over the last eight years I continued to write about the situation as news about them appeared, yet to my knowledge no one has taken any action to address this problem. The most I saw anyone do was Care2 starting a petition to get then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton to do something. Nothing occurred.
The Canadian government knew about the problem back in 2007, yet initially ignored reports. Even when they acknowledged what happened, the government did nothing to address it beyond trying to silence the soldiers who spoke out about the abuse.
In March of 2014, the U.S. State Department acknowledged the centuries-old practice had become a problem, yet that followed the Obama administration issuing a new Army manual telling troops not to judge Afghan social customs, such as the practice of bacha bazi.
Stephen’s article covers much of the same information the other articles presented. Continue reading
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
News of a child sexual abuse ring rocked a rural Pakistani village this past week. According to reports, over hundreds of children were kidnapped, drugged, and raped by a pedophile ring led by members of a local gang in Kasur:
Villagers accuse police officials of covering up a pedophile ring, after videos emerged of their children being molested by members of a prominent and influential local family.
They say the abuse had been going on since at least 2009, and that the children were blackmailed to steal from their homes to prevent the videos from going public.
According to a survey by the group last week, one in three of the 500 households questioned in the district of Kasur had a child who had been sexually abused, Sara said.
CNN affiliate Geo TV reported higher numbers, saying around 400 videos were made of 280 minors.
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.
