And you can get in for "free" and be shaken to your core!! IF YOU USES THIS CODE --- EFFTIW. A groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America's most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem - today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010. The Invisible War exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.

What works (much) better than gun control? by Clint Archer South Africa is the violent crime capital of the world. It’s nice to be known for something other than Apartheid. Indiscriminate rape, murder, and armed robbery may actually be a step in a better direction. Most foreigners I meet can’t comprehend the milieu in which South Africans conduct their everyday lives. Jaws drop when they hear of the presidential candidate whose campaign became more successful with every revealing news cycle of his ongoing corruption cases, rape trial, and other criminal antics including polygamy. The watching world shakes its head in bewilderment at stories of flame-thrower car defense systems and armed response teams patrolling barbed-wired neighborhoods. For us, the denizens of urban South Africa, it’s normal to make an appointment to visit friends by contacting their housing complex’s security team. Everyday routines like drawing cash from an ATM in broad daylight have become an adrenal adventure; public benche ...

A response from Pastors Mary Lynn and Bill regarding an assault that took place on the DCC Campus on Saturday, January 26th. "Over the weekend there was an incident of sexual assault on the property of Davis Community Church. We are saddened and angered that this beautiful and sacred space has been used by one human being to harm another. As a community of faith, we are holding all those involved in our prayers. We pray for emotional, physical and spiritual healing for the victim, wisdom and insight for the Davis police as they go about their task of locating and arresting the perpetrator, and courage for the perpetrator to confess and repent of his actions. The Davis police have not shared much information with us as this is an ongoing investigation. We do know that neither the victim nor the perpetrator are part of the DCC church community. We also know that no church programs were occurring at the time of the assault. Davis Community Church has a long history of providing space for many groups in the c ...

Sex Trafficking Of Children in U.S.: Part 7 Trying to Regain Innocence When Debbie was finally freed from the drawer, she was sobbing, and said she gave the officer "the biggest hug in the world." "I was so relieved!" she said. "And then that's when my ... I was standing there, and my knees started ... they gave out." While it seems unbelievable that these girls didn't try to escape earlier, experts say it's not so uncommon. "These are human beings who are owned by someone else, who lack the ability to walk away, who lack the ability to make a decision in their own self-interest to do something else," said Allen. "If that's not slavery, I don't know what is." Police arrested two people at the apartment, and Debbie was taken to a safe house for children while her mother was called. "I remember I got the call while I was driving to work," Kersti said. "That was scary. I had to pull over. But, uh, it was just wild, it was. I drove as fast as I legally could.

FROM Stop The War On Women's Rights PLEASE SHARE WIDELY OUTRAGEOUS: The Senate Education and Health Committee just met for a total of 25 minutes (at a time they never meet, in a room they never use) to defeat SB 1332, the final pro-choice bill in the Virginia Senate. SB 1332, which would make VA's mandatory ultrasound requirement optional, was heard with no testimony from experts (some who had traveled hours to be there) and went to a vote before all of the Democrats could even get in the room. This is beyond belief. If you are as angry as we are, please call Chairman Martin ((804) 698-7511, district11and ask him why he held a sneaky meeting, why he did not allow testimony, and why he obviously has next to no regard for the women of Virginia. Please share -- let's flood the phone lines.

A full circle on RAPE. I met another rape survivor yesterday of very similar circumstances. Wow has my world been rocked. Many of you know of the recent rapes in a sports community that I work with very closely. Just to recap, two men, took there fellow female teammate to a garage on NYE and allegedly* raped her repeatedly (it was all caught on the security cams). Soon after, news broke of the history of their instructor who 20 years prior, went to trial for a 7 man gang rape against a 17 year old. He was acquitted*, but 3 other guys did time for rape. There was just too much rape in the news for me to handle and my world shut down for the last two weeks. Rather than focusing my anger towards the people and the people associated with the gym and their mantras, I decided to effect change myself. Yesterday I met a young lady who was raped under similar circumstances. Here's the story. I was at a wrestling tournament, selling my Super Body Care products. It was ages 8-12 competing, mostly boys and some g ...

There are SO many good things going on in the world ~ so much good work. Just as I struggled to get organized, I began to get phone calls and emails from friends who are DOING and ORGANIZING and they are motivating me. I realize this has been going on all week.

I am so grateful that others are asking me to bring my book on women's rhythms to the forfront as well. It fits perfectly.
Bill Would Ensure State Agencies Do Not Place Homeless and Evacuated Families Near Registered Sex Offenders TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Linda R. Greenstein that would strengthen New Jersey’s sex offender registry statute – Megan’s Law – was unanimously approved today by the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee. “Since the horrific death of Megan Kanka nearly 20 years, New Jersey has been a leader nationally and internationally in legislation to protect our children from sexual predators,” said Senator Greenstein, D-Middlesex/Mercer, vice chair of the Committee. “The law creating the statewide sex offender database has continued to evolve to meet modern needs, but we can’t stop. By ensuring that agencies are not kept in the dark regarding which dangerous individuals are living where, we can continue to provide safe living arrangements for New Jersey families.” The bill, S-1946, would give the Department of Human Services and county and municipal welfare agencie ...

"Gentlemen. This is what rape culture is like: Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged? And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant *** who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When *** all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. W ...

Resolve To End Military Sexual Assaults (AUSTIN AMERICAN STATESMAN 26 JAN 13) A "cancer." "Appalling." Those were the words used by the Air Force’s top general to describe the number of sexual assaults reported each year by women serving in his branch of the military. Gen. Mark Welsh III’s words were powerful and appropriate, yet inadequate at the same time. He was called to speak before the U.S. House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday about the sexual assault scandal at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, where 32 basic training instructors have been investigated over the past two years for allegedly assaulting 59 women. Six instructors have been convicted of sexual misconduct. Nine trials are pending. More possibly are on the way. But Welsh and Gen. Edward Rice Jr., the officer in charge of the command that includes Lackland, also testified about a problem that goes beyond Lackland. Both generals assured members of the congressional panel that the Air Force was addressing the problem of sexu ...
New Opportunities For Women In War Allowing women in combat roles may open up 34,000 jobs to them (NAVY TIMES 04 FEB 13) ... Andrew Tilgham and Sam Fellman The Pentagon has ordered the elimination of all formal restrictions preventing women from serving in ground combat and in combat career fields, potentially opening up as many as 34,000 Navy jobs, many of them in some of the service’s most storied branches. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Jan. 24 that some jobs will be opened up this year and all billets and career fields across the military should be open to women by the start of 2016 — unless the services seek specific exemptions. Across the military, that means potentially 200,000 jobs. “Not everyone is going to be able to be a combat soldier — but everyone is entitled to a chance,” Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon. The move will likely open up to 5,000 Navy positions in Marine Corps ground units and 400 in the riverine force, which had been limited to men under the combat exclusi ...

An article from Police Magazine about interrogations which should be of interest to Private Investigators as well. NFL football provides a helpful analogy for interrogations. by Wes Clark Nobody makes it to the NFL without practice and training, and for the few that do make it to that level, the practice and training continues throughout their career. How many hours of training on interviews and interrogations does the average police officer get in his or her career? In most police academies, they will be lucky to get two or three hours, and if they get promoted to detective (kind of like the NFL for cops), they will probably be sent to a three- or five-day interview and interrogation course. As professionals in law enforcement, we have to raise our game and consistently seek out training throughout our careers to keep improving our skill level and effectiveness at conducting interviews and interrogations. Players on the field must know the rules of the game, just as players in the interview room must kno ...
Call me liberal- I am against children being shot to death. I do not believe you have a valid use for high capacity magazines. I do not think you need an assault weapon. I think anyone buying a weapon should have their background checked, including violent psych records. I think banks should be held responsible and liable for their effect on the economy. I think drugs should be tested for safety before being released for human use. Nothing against animals but if it's a monkey or my daughter, the monkey just got tested! I think we should all be allowed and required to have affordable health insurance. I think welfare and food stamps keep good people from starving, dying, becoming homeless or resorting to crime to survive. Though it should be temporary. I think Medicaid and Medicare are good things. Elderly, disabled and chronically ill people should not be refused treatment or income. I think illegal immigrants should be given a path to citizenship. However, I think all immigrants, legal or not should be r ...

Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) Notification Team. Reviewed and confirmed Evans’ residence, employment, access to vehicles, legal status, and past crimes. Made personal and/or mail notifications to neighbors and businesses deemed to be in the immediate area. Briefed patrol personnel on Evans’ status, history, appearance, residence, employment and vehicles. Notified surrounding law enforcement agencies. Prov ...
I have heard of poignant stories of women being subjected to acid attacks, kidnapping and gang rape. Many of the perpetrators started with seemingly harmless acts of sexual harassment (what we euphemistically call eve teasing). A guy gets away with a whistle and cat call, he then starts commenting and nobody stops him, he starts staring creepily (girls would know what I am talking about); still unchecked, he goes and tries to grope... the cycle continues. Most men don't degrade to sexual assault on women unknown to them, but a vast majority of those who do, get started with a harmless whistle on the street. Pink Revolution didn't go far. But I have joined hands with several people from across the country who are doing their bit towards making India safer for women, 1 small step at a time :) My current commitment is towards making www.safecity.in a heavily adopted platform. Pink Revolution - last official update from Pink Revolution, unless I find the reason to come back to it. Please continue extending yo ...
ROBBINSVILLE friends ... Edward Gutierrez is now free on bond after he was charged with internet luring of a child, enticement of a child, two counts of internet sexual exploitation of a child and attempted sexual assault of a child - he lives on Branford Rd and flew to Colorado from Philly to have sex with a 13 year old girl.

Trying to figure out how to teach a bunch of freshman about the differences between sexual harassment and sexual assault is not a easy task.
Whenever a woman claims to have been a victim of sexual assault, domestic violence, etc.-- no matter how outlandish her story --"Feminists" and their trained barking dogs always resort to the same tired mantra: "Women don't lie about such things!"; "Why would she lie?"; "Always believe the woman!" They always rabidly & vociferously proclaim that any woman who cries that she's been violated or victimized in some way is always telling the truth and can never act out of evil spite or vindictiveness and can never, or will never, fabricate false accusations against men primarily but also against other women as a way to hurt somebody else and to ruin the accused person's reputation and/or career. They quickly and conveniently duck-&-dodge and shield their eyes & ears from official studies/statistics, and even ignore the truth blatantly taking place right in front of their faces! And even when they "ARE" forced to acknowledge the truth of the situation, they are hyper-quick to call for "understanding" rather tha ...

Because I take the worst "work breaks" ever, I decided to read the four page white paper on immigration from those lovely Senators. Right off the bat, it wants a "tough but fair path to citizenship" for undocumented immigrants. OK, so which part of risking death crossing the desert (where hundreds die), women especially risking sexual assault from traffickers/coyotes, hoping Border Patrol doesn't beat or kill you, and then living for years with the constant threat of being torn away from your US-born child for a broken tail light doesn't constitute "tough"? I think they've got that part covered. Let's work on "fair." Better yet, let's start from the fact that the immigration system we had for 130 years or so -- i.e. "show up, stay 5 years, and be a citizen" -- worked pretty well, and we should be starting with that as a baseline, not starting with the series of racist laws we passed in the 20th century as a baseline. I'm going to stop ranting now. Temporarily.
A horse on a farm east of Dickinson, N.D., was recovering Friday from an apparent sexual assault, an illegal act ranchers suggest happens all too often in the area, but rarely gets reported.
former Missouri State Representative Barney Fisher (A.K.A. my government professor) had some eloquent nuggets of wisdom to share today regarding rape and sexual assault on women in the military: "If you're a woman, and if you're gonna play with the big dogs then..." (he trailed off there at the end presumably because he couldn't think of a nice way to say "prepare to be raped") Also, when discussing the Tailhook scandal regarding the sexual assault of a Naval woman by her peers, Fisher bravely reported that since she was drinking with other naval officers, "she wasn't the innocent little lamb people thought she was." Keep making me proud, southwest Missouri.

For the very few people who have the intelligence and the patience. -JOIN THE RESISTANCE: Fall in Love. -Falling in love is the ultimate act of revolution, of resistance to today's tedious, socially restrictive, culturally constrictive, humanly meaningless world. Love transforms the world. Where the lover formerly felt boredom, he now feels passion. Where she once was complacent, she now is excited and compelled to self-asserting action. The world which once seemed empty and tiresome becomes filled with meaning, filled with risks and rewards, with majesty and danger. Life for the lover is a gift, an adventure with the highest possible stakes; every moment is memorable, heartbreaking in its fleeting beauty. When he falls in love, a man who once felt disoriented, alienated, and confused will know exactly what he wants. Suddenly his existence will make sense to him; suddenly it becomes valuable, even glorious and noble, to him. Burning passion is an antidote that will cure the worst cases of despair and resi ...

Update: terrible news regarding LS. please read. Hi, This is Dave LS boyfriend. She wanted me to get on here and give you an update. She was locked up on Wensday by her parents. They have her on a psych hold because of our choice to abort. Neither one of us are ready to have children especially from such a act of violence. Lacy goes back to court on Monday, but her parents have puled some strings to keep her locked up saying she is a danger to herself and others. We do have an attorney but we have our hands tied. I am going back to visit her this afternoon at 2. I have her password now and will keep you updated. Please keep her in your thoughts.
I am not in the Infantry, but I am in a combat MOS that currently does not allow women. I could not imagine having women in our unit, and I don't think it is a good idea. Quite frankly, we are very happy that there are no females with us, and it is mentioned a lot. I do not doubt for a second that women can do our job (in some cases better), although I am sure there are jobs that that argument could apply to. I simply want people to know some daily activities that I don't think women will find accommodations for. In our job, we spend entire days straight in a truck. If you think women should sit in a truck with 3-5 men for 36+ hours, i dare you to try it. some trucks we use only have 2 people in them... you want a 20 year old man and woman to spend 36+ hours in a truck alone together? In our situation, privacy is not even considered. When you gotta go you grab a Gatorade bottle and stand up. If you have to you sit on a field toilet, outside, and go into a bag. If you expect women to do these thi ...

Hooray for the sheriff from Milwaukee, he made a radio public service announcement telling citizens to enroll in a gun safety course and arm themselves for their protection since 911 response time will not protect them (average time for armed robbery is 20 minutes, 55 minutes for sexual assault). Regrettably the police basically report crime, not prevent it, no disrespect intended.

Breaking news: police confirm 14-year old amber alert teenager found with 33-year old man in Florida 10-minutes ago
Although it has left some crucial questions unanswered, the Verma Committee report is a big step forward in the struggle for women’s rights The UPA government has perhaps got more than what it bargained for from the committee it set up, headed by the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice J.S. Verma, in the wake of the public outrage following the horrific Delhi gang rape. The government had decided on only limited terms of reference for the committee (whose other members were an equally eminent former Supreme Court judge, Justice Leila Seth, and former Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam) but fortunately the members, in their words, interpreted it “expansively.” Through the over 600 pages of this path-breaking, insightful report, with the marshalling of irrefutable evidence, what emerges is a strong indictment of the governments at the Centre and the States for their criminal callousness in ignoring the earlier recommendations of measures to prevent sexual violence against women. In sec ...

What Parents Should Know About Emergency Contraception By Kristen Danielson, M.D. On November 26, 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a new policy statement on the use of emergency contraception in adolescents, recommending that teens under the age of 17 years should also have access to emergency contraception without a prescription. Sobering facts The U.S. still has the highest rate of teen pregnancy among developed countries. An estimated 10 percent of sexually active teens are victims of sexual assault. Many teens still have sex without any protection. Nearly half of teens ages 15-19 years report having been sexually active. What is emergency contraception? It is intended to prevent pregnancy after intercourse. Typically, it is an oral contraceptive (“the pill”) that is taken in specified doses after sexual intercourse. Emergency contraception is most effective if taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex, but it can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex. Indications for us ...

THE MOB MONDAY UPDATE: KAZAKHSTAN TRANSIT POINT FOR BROWN HEROIN from AFGAHNISTAN AND HOME OF THE OWNERS OF 2/3 of COMINCO GOLD MINES RCMP CORRUPTION IN CUMBERLAND HOUSE SASKATCHEWAN has long been an issue since REFORM PARTY JACK RAMSAY was an officer there involved with a teen aged Indigenous girl at the detachment.

"This is an important case for the disability rights community, as it highlights the need to protect the rights of people with disabilities to communication, self-determination, loving relationships, and marriage." Disability Rights Alert Anna Stubblefield, an associate professor of philosophy at Rutgers-Newark and a disability studies scholar, has been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault based on an allegation that she engaged in non-consensual sexual activity with a 30-year-old man named DMan (Derrick) Johnson who, it is charged, she knew to be incompetent to consent. Mr. Johnson was a panelist at the Society for Disability Studies annual conference in June, 2010.

It is on the left side of the road when going to the mall from Dover. It is in the Community Center but has its own entrance to the right of the main door. While only open part of the time until March (Wednesdays), this agency is handling cases of sexual assault and domestic violance. At this point they are looking for volunteers to be on their Advisiory Board (meets once a month) and/or fund raising for these agencies which do not get a lot of government funding. If you have any interest in some community service (takes in Strafford County) you can call 509-1916.

Supporting Someone Who Has Been Raped or Sexually Assaulted When someone has been raped or sexually assaulted, they obviously need a great deal of support from the people around them as well as from people like counselors, the police, doctors and so on. Many people simply do not know how to help somebody through the trauma of rape or sexual assault, and so they become frustrated and bewildered and feel that they are in some way failing the person they care about. These feelings can sometimes be transmitted to that person, making it even harder for them to cope with their experiences and often leaving them with even more feelings of guilt and confusion. Every person responds differently to abuse, although there are certain feelings that are common, such as fear, distress, humiliation, anger, confusion, numbness and guilt. The feelings a person has may vary from week-to-week, day-to-day - even minute-to-minute. What is important is that someone who has been attacked is allowed to experience their feelings w ...

-Jennie OBITUARY NOTICE Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themse ...

With a Little Help, Trauma Survivors Can Overcome Relationship Barriers Childhood trauma, such as abuse, neglect, sexual assault, and abandonment, can impact a child’s ability to form positive relationships later in life. The way a child copes with trauma can form the foundation for his or her coping strategies throughout life. Maladaptive strategies can lead to depression, eating issues, anxiety, substance misuse, sexual difficulties, and even suicide. These behaviors, coupled with the fears associated with relationships, can make adult intimate relationships, and even relationships with family and friends, difficult at best. Pratyusha Tummala-Narra of the Department of Counseling, Developmental and Educational Psychology at Boston College recently conducted a study to determine how trauma survivors navigate the choppy waters of adult relationships and how psychotherapy assists in that process. Tummala-Narra assessed 21 adult participants diagnosed with posttraumatic stress. All of the participants had ...

I know the following is football, but I get into that once in a while. Besides, what am I going to comment on right now? Some free agents garnering non-roster invitations to camps other than the Yankees? Congratulations to the NFL. You have a Super Bowl match-up that this fan has ZERO interest in watching. In fact, I will not even pay attention to a second of your two-week hype machine. I will instead countdown to the days until pitchers and catchers report. Why? Let's start with the obvious. Ray Lewis. It's bad enough that he got off scott-free from the double murder, of which he was clearly implicated. (I don't count the obstruction of justice plea as punishment.) What's worse is the complete whitewash by the NFL and the media. Instead of keeping a low-profile, he actually has done the opposite. CBS has basically spent the last two weeks as his personal publicist during NFL broadcasts, painting the rosiest of pictures of Lewis, glorifying his pre-game rituals and celebrating each win as thou ...

The Toronto Star's Rosie DiManno makes light of rape and sexual assault
EVENT SUMMARY ‘TOWARDS A SEXUAL VIOLENCE FREE WORLD: LOOKING INWARDS FOR ANSWERS’ BY PEOPLE’S UNION FOR CIVIL LIBERTIES ON JANUARY 09, 2013 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MADRAS. SPEAKERS V. Geetha – Writer, Sheelu – TN Women’s Collective, Nagasaila – Advocate Shashikumar – Asian College of Journalism, Balamurugan – Gen.Sec – TN/Puduvai, PUCL Moderated by V. Suresh Gen.Sec – PUCL V. Geetha: The most disturbing facet of the Delhi Rape case is that a 17 year old was the most brutal attacker. What gave him the impunity? We have always used the word rape instead of sexual assault thus placing a heavy burden on the woman. We falsely celebrate women or look at them as achievers but never as equal beings. We need to ask how men are brought up. What is the reason for men to not distinguish love, sex and violence? Why do we propagate a culture where women are called ‘figures’ and are ‘marked’? When do such seemingly innocent acts lead to violence? Society is angered with women becau ...

And now the news that a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers is being investigated for sexual assault, the week that his team plays in the NFC Championship game. All of these men were people that other people looked up to. People that were idolized by children and some adults alike. And now disappointed.

They had come to remember the victim who, 13 days after the assault on Dec. 16, succumbed to internal injuries in a hospital in Singapore – but not before igniting a nation to rise against an epidemic of sexual violence that has long plagued this South Asian country of 1.2 billion people

AN OPEN LETTER TO NANTUCKET. As you may know, it was my honor to have served as a President of the Board of A Safe Place, Inc. In its many years of service to Nantucket, A Safe Place has been so steadfast in its mission and become so integral a part of the fabric of our community that, it seems to me, we have developed a somewhat false sense of security about the existence of domestic violence on-island. Though I am long retired from its Board, I have remain consistently committed to the goals and mission of A Safe Place. A recent incident has prompted me to urge you, my fellow islanders, to re-commit to A Safe Place's mission: "To work to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault, and to empower every woman, man and child in the Nantucket community to live a life free from violence". Nantucket is a unique community. To live on Nantucket is a privilege; with that privilege comes the responsibility keep Nantucket free of violence and a safe place for every member of our community.

Today I feel sorry for all those hate-filled Teabaggers and Republicans who wanted to see our President fail in his first term, and did everything in their power to see he did. I feel bad that some of their leaders did not get their wish to make him a one term President, despite all their obstruction and record number of filibusters. I feel sad for those Americans and conspiracy nuts who, to this day, believe the President of the United States is a Muslim. I feel great that our legally elected President is not Willard 'Mitt' Romney. Here's hoping America moves forward and is not taken back back by those who honestly believe that the rich in this country are victims, that people with sexual orientations different than theirs do not deserve equal rights, and that women don't deserve the right to make their own choices with their bodies, despite what another persons religion or faith dictates, or what white rich men in politics say they should do, as they scream about smaller government.
Somehow wound up in a conversation about rape and culture of thought with 4 males.one pointed out that 4% of VICTIMS (reported) involved provative behavior. Women dress half naked and planned parenthood gives 13 year olds birth control.you cna't tell me this has nothing to do with rape! If this would stop maybe.twas an interesting conversation.I'mpretty sure I didn't say anything to create defensiveness.but why such defensiveness? I'm so glad I meditated for 1/2 hour before this encounter!

United States Main article: Hate crime laws in the United States Hate crime laws have a long history in the United States. The first hate crime laws were passed after the American Civil War, beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1871, to combat the growing number of racially motivated crimes being committed by the Reconstruction era Ku Klux Klan. The modern era of hate-crime legislation was begun in 1968 with the passage of federal statute, 18 U.S. 245, part of the Civil Rights Act which made it illegal to "by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone who is engaged in six specified protected activities, by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin." However, "The prosecution of such crimes must be certified by the U.S. attorney general.". The first state hate-crime statute, California's Section 190.2, was passed in 1978 and provided for penalty enhancement in cases where murder was motivated by prejudice against four "protected status" categories: race ...
Beware of false rape claims: SC NEW DELHI: In a landmark judgment, the Supreme Court has alerted the trial courts about the rising incidence of frame-ups in rape cases on the basis of false testimonies by alleged victims. While reaffirming the resolve of the judiciary to deal firmly with sexual assault, a Bench comprising Justices R Raveendran and B Sudarshan Reddy said that courts needed to be aware of the tendency to use allegations of rape to settle scores. "The courts should, at the same time, bear in mind that false charges of rape are not uncommon," said the Bench as it acquitted one Radhu from Madhya Pradesh, who was convicted for forcibly confining a minor and raping her through the night more than 16 years ago. The caution sounded by the apex court takes on significance because of the rulings it has given over the years relying on the victim's testimony to convict the accused, even if the corroborative evidence and the medical examination do not establish sexual assault. The apex court reiterated ...

Simpsons featuring steroid-induced, abusive spousal sexual assault?!! *** How the *** is that supposed to be funny?
Last semester, I had a stalker. He sent me horrible emails and detailed what he wanted to do to me and acknowledged that this would be done against my will. I had to FIGHT with administration to take me seriously. My parents had to go out of their way and hire someone who works for the FBI to help. I HATE Emory for not protecting its students who are victimized and trying to sweep this under the rug (like they do with sexual assault and rape cases). I encourage anyone who has been a victim to speak out against it and don't EVER give up. You have supporters here at Emory, such as ASAP, SAPA and Team Chaos, who aren't afraid to be your advocates.

Rapists assault tribal woman on hospital premises as spouse was made to look on In yet another barbaric sexual assault, six men allegedly gang-raped a tribal woman after tying up her husband on the premises of the district hospital in Mayurbhanj in Baripada. The 25-year-old tribal woman of Dantiamuha village had gone to the hospital yesterday along with her husband to see her ailing brother, admitted to the hospital following an accident, police said today. In the evening, six men started teasing her. As her husband protested, he was overpowered by the accused who tied him to a tree and gang-raped the woman in front of her husband, sources claimed. After the victim lodged an FIR, the police arrested all the six accused and sent them for medical examination.

NEW DELHI: In the wake of shocking Delhi gangrape incident, a Parliamentary Committee is mulling recommending a slew of corrective measures, including mandatory filing of FIRs in cases of sexual assault and fast tracking of such cases. Members of the Standing Committee on Home Affairs examining the Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill, 2012 today heard the views of Home Secretary R K Singh on the proposed measure. During the meeting, members felt that though law and order is a state subject, they should recommend fast tracking of cases relating to sexual offences, increasing the strength of women in police forces, time-bound completion of cases related to sexual crimes and mandatory lodging of FIRs in such cases. They felt that the recommendations would help strengthen the hands of the government. The recommendations could form part of the report on the Bill being examined by the Committee. Singh is understood to have informed the committee that the issues have already been taken up at the meeting of state polic ...

DC police chief Kathy Lanier has ordered an investigation into old sexual assault cases: who are the detectives that will get that plumb assignment?

It’s not normal in the sense of good or inevitable, but in that it is our culture. That’s difficult but important to face.
"To *** with Modesty..."- with the same title artical has been published in Current 'TOI's 'The Creast Edtion'.. Kim Arora has discussed about the vocabulary of sexual assault... The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'Modesty' as 'Dressing or behaving so as to avoid impropriety or indecency, specially to avoid attracting sexual attention.. may be in another words 'Immodesty' is a part of problem because she seems to attarcting sexual attention.. Lets just think about the dressing and behaviour, who the *** will decide what is attracting the perverts and what is not. If it will be correlated with the historical timeline then what is the exact discription of dressing and behaviour which will describe Modesty and Immodesty. 'Maryline Monroe' during her time was the sexiest women and its definatly not just because of her Dressing and Behaviour but the glamour she had created around her with some extraordinary efforts had given her that 'tag' and recently 'Vidya Balan' is at first rank in 'Outlook' magzine's . ...
HEY FOLKS! We are looking for a replacement panelist for our Community Alternatives to Police event on February 12th. we are looking for someone specifically who can speak on behalf of the necessity for alternatives to police when dealing with intimate violence and sexual assault.
Yesterday I spent 9 hours on the computer looking for more Cousins for our site. I was sucessful in learning about 4 cousins in their late 40's and 2 young girls presently teenagers. All are descended from the Mathew McGowen line. First was Sadonia Marie Massey and her husband Christpher Horton. I thought to myself "Cool, we might get some new members".After further review, I discovered that Sadonia and Christopher lost their Parental Rights to their girls due to sexual abuse, child endangerment, and horrible living conditions. And Sadonia died in Louisiana in her early 30's. So I moved on to the next cousin. Second came William Guy Massey. Well.William is currently serving a 15 yr. sentence in Texas (his 4th sentence) for various crimes such as: Burglary, Agg. Assault, Poss. w/ intent to distribute and manufacture a controlled substance. (Way to Go William G.I bet your Momma's really proud of you!) So I thought to myself "Surely the whole family can't be bad." Next came Ottis Earl Massey Jr. Also a c ...

*** men and women in some instances already have more rights than other citizens under the law. If you truly want equality than rid yourself of this notion of *** rights". Rights are not separated into groups, rights start with the individual. There is no such thing as women’s rights, men’s rights, black rights or *** rights and I say that as a Bi-sexual male. There are only Individual Rights that universally apply to everyone equally. When you split rights into groups you are saying that “this group gets these rights and this group gets these rights” and they get those rights because they belong to that group. Well eventually what happens is one group has more rights than another group and what you were trying to achieve which is “equality” is never found. A perfect example of this is hate crime laws. The *** community wanted equality, so they lobbied in Washington to try and achieve that. They came back with hate crime laws and what happened is that a person who is *** now has more rights t ...
This is who the Media is celebrating and trying to turn into a role model: From Wikipedia :He has six children by four women,He gained notoriety for his involvement in a January 2000 fight that resulted in an indictment on murder and aggravated-assault charges. In a plea agreement he plead guilty to obstruction of justice in exchange for testimony against two other defendants. Give me a F'ING break the Ravens can't lose by enough to suit me.

I recorded the inauguration speech and played it back several times... Obama mentioned numerous times how all men are created equal, by their creator. Freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by his people here on earth. A little girl born in poverty is equal in the eyes of God.Preserve our planet commanded to our care by God. then goes on to say...Our Journey is not complete until our *** brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. Personally I do not care about anyones sexual preference because it will have no impact on my judgement. In Christian like religions the lines of what is acceptable have been drawn for thousands of years. In the bible it is written Homosexuality will ban you from entering the gates of heaven. The law he speaks of is his own and not that which is Holy. He has the power to influence millions, of those on their judgement. Do they really think they can say "but Obama said it was ok." He then claims that his oath was to God and country. Which is the bigg ...

Someone who did the right thing and continues to: AHS does have hazing history Regarding the front-page story about the hazing and sexual assault involving members of the Ashland High School football team, I would like to say two things. First, I applaud Principal Zundel and the Ashland Police Department for handling this as the serious criminal matter it is. It is a genuinely refreshing change of attitude to witness. However, secondly, the statement that the school did not have a history of hazing or sexual assault is false. How do I know? I was a student at Ashland High School from 1998-2001 and was both a victim and witness to this behavior, which was shockingly widespread. I was not a silent sufferer; I told my parents, school administrators teachers, and even at my most desperate — when I feared for my life — the police. Nothing was done. When shockingly obscene, slanderous words were spray-painted on three different sites on campus, I was called down to the principal's office and asked "how are ...

If I wasn't so tired I'd complain about the I *** today instead I will say thank you Dr King for standing up for what's right and being a kickass orator. Now Mr. President stop trying to deal with "issues" like gun control. Sorry America that is not a pressing issue. Fiscal growth, strengthening the American international image, and giving equal rights to all no matter based on what religion sexual orientation race sex or anything are far more important than gun control.
I was asked what I am doing for my day of service. I am assembling dignity kits for victims of sexual assault with my friends from the Center for Women, Politics and Policy from Portland State. This transcends political beliefs for sure. Tonight the Wash and Mult democrats have a sold out party at the World Forestry Center. We worked hard last year and we are going to celebrate!

So about all this *** Shaming" nonsense, here are my opinions,a few facts and some ranting: First, I do not consider making someone responsible for their behavior, the message they send people and outcome thereof, "Shaming". I do consider following somone around screaming *** " at them, "Shaming". As a Sexual assault survivor and advocate of Feminism and Women's Rights, I do NOT condone violence against anyone, so don't even try that cheap shot lol Second, I USED to dress like what one would consider a *** . This is one of the reasons I feel this way. It got me in a lot of trouble and put me in situations where I made bad decisions, mostly because of the mindset that came along with that whole persona. If you are moaning about not having "Respect", try putting on some clothes, scraping some of the cake off your face, remove your fake eyelashes and start showing the word something OTHER THAN YOUR *** AND *** and you might get what you are looking for. I didn't make the world or the problems i ...
