Cop runs mouth at uni speaking engagement, says women shouldn't dress like sluts if they don't want to be raped. He did apologize, but too little, too late.

Sluts took to the streets.

From the "Night Stalker" link: Senior officers say the Worboys errors were the result of a "culture of disbelief" of rape victims, while in the Reid case, errors also appeared to be systemic.

Yep.

Wow. How can you be an impartial jury member on an issue like that? And wouldn't anyone who was caught viewing said footage get charged with possession of child pornography?

Um, too little, too late much? A lot of damage has already been done.

A Houston Chronicle attorney has challenged the gag order because "This order is really gagging the public". Y'know what should be gagging the Cleveland, TX public? That an eleven year old girl was raped in their community by possibly eighteen assailants & it was captured on people's cellphones. Meaning they stood around & WATCHED as the atrocity took place. I just . . . I can't. It makes me so mad I could spit.

Well, all right! Let's not only fuck over expectant moms, but preemies as well! Long as big pharma gets their monies, fuck everybody else.

And don't even think about being a single mother.

Gang Rape Story Lacked Balance Y'think?! Because I wasn't so much concerned by the lack of balance as I was by the fucking victim blaming! Worrying about the boys & the town, but not the little girl because she wore makeup & wore clothes more in the style of a twenty-something. An eleven year old is still a BABY!

Way to victim blame an eleven year old girl, NYT!

American Apparel's Dov Charney getting sued for allegedly forcing sex on teen employee. This guy is such an incredible creep. And a WELL DOCUMENTED creep. Gawker has been up his ass forever, I even remember the Jane magazine article where he beat off in front of Claudine Ko. Ugh. I haven't bought anything AA in probably more than six years because dude is a creeper.

The Disposable Woman popped up today in the NYT & made some interesting points on the whole Sheen drama.

I am ashamed to admit it, but I have been one of the people sitting back & laughing at the insanity instead of asking questions about Sheen & his track record of domestic abuse/violence towards women.

I have wondered about the scarlet Ps the women he has been with, his "goddesses", have been branded with. It's like, whatever, they're whores anyway. Like somehow their choice of occupation makes them less worthy of our sympathy. True, a few of them have tried to make lemonade from lemons & taken more charge of exploiting themselves/the situation, but I do not think that makes them deserving of scorn.

I've also taken pause & wondered about where the fuck his daughters are gonna be in fifteen years/what kind of future this debacle is creating for them & the sterling example he's setting for his twin sons.

*sigh* Disappointing that he's only been removed from cases of a sexual nature. There's still quite a push to get a further review and have him removed but we'll see.

Thanks, Aural, ofr the update. I read about that case a couple of months ago. I have no words. I could say that people are animals, but that's insulting to animals.

I don't know if this goes here, but i've been noticing this thing; it all began with that 'settling for mr good enough' BS. I read a not very brightly written article in the NYT about how women stay single for so long and this is because they have 'unreasonable expectations' of how their future husband should be. And that there are so many women men won't have to settle.
Then i read this Slate article:

Shame on Slate for publishing an article written by a guy with such an obvious conservative agenda (marrying young is good, according to this guy). Anecdotal evidence and quoting from a study published in 1982 does not good research make.
But what fascinated me was what people said in the comments section. Apart from the 'feminists ruined men' adage, i got the feeling that there are people who really think that when there's more casual sex between men and women (marriage and heterosexual sex are the only subject; nothing is said about same sex couple or polyamorous relationships or commitment without getting hitched) men will not settle becuase sex is readily avalable. The author says that women outnumber men and that sex has devalued because of that (and the fact that women have sex more readily). Anyway, the article is a whole lot of mumbo jumbo, and i'm not sure if i want to put y'all through that.

My question is; is marriage really still that important in the U.S? I don't have any numbers to back up my claims, but i find the whole 'why get the cow when you can get the milk for free' thing absolutely ludicrous. Having sex with someone just because you want to and meeting someone you start to feel deeply for are two different things, and i can't shake the feeling that consumerism has become so important that everything gets measured in terms of value and sale. Commenters on slate state that women should hold out for sex, so that men have to work for it.

I don't really have a point; it's just that i really don't see this development (if it is one, and not just another bogus tred) here in Europe.

I'm curious if you Busties have a sensible take on this.

ketto, that's really encouraging. I did notice where it happened, and wondered if there'd be any local Bustie insights. Thank cod for signs of progress.

Anarch, that happened in my city and I'm surprised at how positive the public response has been. The day the story broke it was front page news and by noon a rally had been organized outside the law courts and by the end of the day a judicial review was called. They're beginning their investigation soon. I was just saying to my partner this morning that I was really surprised and happy with how much of an immediate backlash there was, even from folks who I thought would agree with what the judge said.

Thanks, aural. Fuckin' people who can't tell the difference between real BDSM, which correctly practiced is all about communication and respect, and shit like this.

I'm really glad to read about these domestic violence perps convicting themselves with their own words.

That domestic violence article is terrifying. Can you imagine, being attacked (by someone who is supposed to love you, no less) and then even when the man is in prison you're not safe, not free from hearing from him and being threatened by him? No wonder these women don't testify.

And what kind of idiots say these things when they're told they're being recorded? They must have so much confidence in their emotional abuse and control that they just think they can do anything to get their way.

The link should work now, Anarch.

There's also this article, which leads to another article that addresses some victim blaming.

On a different note, legally recorded prison calls being used to convict perpetrators of domestic violence.
