The rape of an 89-year-old woman is practically dismissed by caregivers because she is a “flirt.” A victim with Down syndrome didn’t act enough like a “victim” to allow a judge to let a guilty verdict stick. If anyone ever has a problem understanding why rape jokes aren’t funny, or why we demand that the effects of our rampant rape culture be taken seriously – they should just read these reports. More
The Department of Justice sent a letter to the Missoula County Attorney’s Office in Montana last Friday, alleging that it has found “substantial evidence” the County Attorney’s response to sexual assault discriminates against women. If what the DOJ alleges is true, this is some of the most disturbing stuff I have read in regards to the handling of victims of sexual assault and their assailants. More
His newest assault on women is called, “Drunkenness and Double Standards: A balanced look at college sex offenses.” It outlines the ever-popular argument among predators everywhere – that women who are drunk deserve what they get. He seems to forget that being intoxicated is not a crime. That this man even has a job is rape culture epitomized. More
Last night Woody Allen wrote his own open letter to The New York Times in regard to the sexual abuse allegations that were posted in The New York Times from Dylan Farrow. It’s interesting that this article was posted on a Friday night, sort of an odd time considering the majority of people in America don’t spend a lot of time web surfing right at the start of the weekend, and what’s even more bizarre is that his letter is just so scathing and ugly towards Mia Farrow, it reads more like hate mail than anything that would put the public’s mind at ease towards whether or not he actually sexually abused his daughter.

As if it weren’t enough that a 14-year-old girl had been raped with more than enough evidence to secure a conviction – a case that was unbelievably dropped by the prosecutor. As if it weren’t enough that her and her family were then basically ran out of town for daring to seek justice. As if it weren’t enough that we just learned last week that she had been hospitalized with possible brain damage after a suicide attempt. Today we learn that the case that has had all of us shaking our heads in confusion and rage has ended with a guilty verdict. But the suspect has not been found guilty of rape. He was able to plea down to a misdemeanor child endangerment charge. More
Melinda Coleman, mother of Daisy Coleman, a young girl who claims she was raped by two high school students when she was 14-years-old has told the press that her daughter tried to commit suicide by overdose Sunday night and is now hospitalized in Kansas City. More
Rape is NOT a circumstance, it’s a choice. If a circumstance is a fact or condition related to an event, what Madison is basically saying here is that rape was just a natural outcome of encountering a teenage girl puking on herself and passing out. The circumstance is not to help her and get her some water and maybe make sure she gets home OK, according to this the circumstance is to rape her. More
A shady “pastor” from Minnesota has been charged with rape after two young girls come forward, and predictably he blamed his victims for what occurred. Because of course he did. More

A grand jury investigating the rape of a 16-year-old in Steubenville, Ohio in 2012 has indicted four more people in the case – including the assistant football coach and school superintendent. More
I see nothing wrong with a company wanting to create an item that makes women feel safer. Except the fact the problem doesn’t and shouldn’t lie with just women. So I’m going to take this opportunity to announce my new line of anti-rape clothing I’m developing for men, called Don’t Rape. My items are in the very early stages of development, and I haven’t made any prototypes yet, but here is what I hope to include. More
I’m not someone who checks the sex offender registry regularly or thinks about it all that much. I checked it before we bought our house four years ago and maybe twice since. So when a friend mentioned she had found an old high school classmate on there, it occurred to me it had been a while and it might be worth a look. I was not prepared for what I found. More
One sexual assault every two minutes. I feel totally comfortable calling that an “epidemic,” because it is an epidemic. You know what definitely isn’t an epidemic, though? False reporting of sexual assault; that statistic is two to eight percent. More
“We were pondering it, but it sounds almost as if it wouldn’t be safe for us to go just because of all the people in Maryville being very angry with the case right now. But we are thinking about it, and we are very thankful for all the people attending,” Daisy said.
