  How much would you pay to hush your accuser? Florida State University and Erica Kinsman settled on the figure of $950,000. And Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston didn’t have to pay a cent of that sum. Back in December of 2012, Winston allegedly raped Kinsman, a first-year pre-med student, after meeting and taking shots at a Tallahassee bar.
For years, men on Internet message boards have been sharing revenge fantasies targeting the women who’ve rejected them. But what is motivating their repeated references to a violent “Beta Uprising,” and how dangerous are the guys who chat online about it? ON OCTOBER 1, 2015, in a scene that has become depressingly familiar, 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer walked into Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, and opened fire, killing nine people and injuring nine more. Like George Sodini, who killed three women and himself in an L.A.
Sadly Roosh was not thrown in jail, he just pretended to be one time when his mommy took him on a fun field trip to a museum. In the most gratifying moment so far in 2016, outspoken internet douchebag Roosh V., a.k.a. that guy who wants to make rape legal and the self-proclaimed “King of Masculinity,” was found living at home in his mother’s basement. The misogynist creator of the infamous misogynist website Return of Kings called 911 after receiving death threats because he is a deplorable person.
In order to talk about Angela Davis, we first need to take off our racial blinders and peer into how the United States values black life. It’s difficult to think of our country in terms of racial value. But whether it is something we on an individual level are actively thinking about or not, the symptoms of its presence on a macro level are everywhere. Black men are more likely to be incarcerated in federal and state prisons now than they were in the 1960s — six times more likely as compared to white men.
According to the CDC, women just can’t have it all, and by "all," they’re talking wine and sex. Our bodies might serve as incubators for another human being someday, and if the CDC had its way, women would show proof of their date of birth as well as birth control prescription when your buying booze. They recommend that in order to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome, all women of childbearing age avoid alcohol if they are sexually active but not on contraceptives.
The actual scum of the Earth, Daryush Valizadeh (Roosh V), has announced on his site Return of Kings that his planned worldwide pro-rape fest will be cancelled. “International Tribal Meetup Day” was supposed to be a gathering of all those wholesome dudes who think rape is totally okay if done in your own home.   Valizadeh wrote that he must cancel the events because “I can no longer guarantee the safety or privacy of the men who want to attend on February 6.
Oftentimes when we discuss sexual violence, we fail to address the most important part: how society reacts and treats the victims after their assault. There is a programmed response immediately after an assault from law enforcement and other government entities. After the initial response, however, victims are often expected to be healed or feel better if they decide to report the crimes to the police. It seems that there is an expected timeline for healing for the victims of sexual violence, and that they are expected to act certain ways about their experiences.
Abortion. What female image comes to mind when you think of the concept? Maybe a distressed woman sitting alone in her bedroom, staring at an unwanted— and unexpected—positive pregnancy test. Maybe she’s too young to raise a baby, she's still a baby herself. Maybe she’s already a mom with three babies and can’t feed a fourth. Maybe she doesn’t like kids and doesn’t want a baby. Maybe she wanted a baby but finally realized her husband is an abusive unfit father-to-be.  It’s her body, her choice, her life, and none of your damn business.
  I did not know Janese Talton-Jackson on a personal level. There’s a chance I might have seen her before. And a lesser chance I might have spoken to her. But if I did either, I don’t remember.But after news of her death began to circulate Facebook Friday afternoon, and more and more people spoke of her, I learned there weren’t many degrees of separation between us. Practically none, actually.She left behind three children. Twin girls and a one-year-old son. The father of her daughters is the son of my mom’s best friend, Ms. Debbie. She also lived in a house owned by Ms.
  Anti-rape activist Amber Amour posted a picture of herself on Instagram minutes after she was raped by an acquaintance in a hotel room in Cape Town, South Africa in Nov. 2015. She sat in the shower, tears streaming down her face, knees against her chest as she detailed the rape to her followers, “As soon as I got in the bathroom, he forced me to my knees. I said 'stop!' but he just got more violent. He lifted me up and put his penis in my vagina. I asked him to stop, again, as I began to cry. When he shoved it in my ass, that's when I passed out.
