Woman From Viral Catcalls Video Gets Rape Threats, Totally Proving Her Point

Woman From Viral Catcalls Video Gets Rape Threats, Totally Proving Her Point

Yesterday, this video was posted to Youtube of an actress walking around the streets of Manhattan, secretly recording all of the catcalls and verbal come-ons that were thrown her way. Most women who watched the video were pissed, because many women have had to deal with this kind of bullshit before. Some men, however, have taken to that shallow pond of racism and misery (i.e. the Youtube comments section) to express their outrage over the video. The problem is, their outrage looks exactly the way you think it does. More »

If Little Girls Dropping F-Bombs Offends You More Than Gender Inequality, Just Sit The F*ck Down

If Little Girls Dropping F-Bombs Offends You More Than Gender Inequality, Just Sit The F*ck Down

FCKH8.com produced a video message about gender inequality and people are freaking out about it. Why? Because it uses little girls, dressed as princesses and dropping a bunch of f-bombs. The message: there are plenty of things more offensive than seeing little girls say the word “fuck.” It’s a message that has managed to go over the heads of many. I’m not surprised. More »

Two Female Teachers Have A Threesome With A Male Student And Let’s Cue The Pervs Cheering Him On

Two Female Teachers Have A Threesome With A Male Student And Let's Cue The Pervs Cheering Him On

In one of my least favorite double standards of all time, we have a case of a male 16-year old high school student being involved in sexual activity with not one, but two female teachers at his school. I have already seen this story shared on Facebook with the typical pieces of filth cheering him on and saying how “lucky” he is but how would the tables turn if he were a female student in a three-way with male teachers?

‘Don’t Get Pulled Over’ Is Cop’s Stellar Advice To Women Afraid Of Getting Raped By Police

'Don't Get Pulled Over' Is Cop's Stellar Advice To Women Afraid Of Getting Raped By Police

Sexual assault by law enforcement has been a problem in Oklahoma of late, with three different officers being arrested recently for on-duty sexual misconduct. Oklahoma women are understandably a bit anxious about the threat of being mistreated during a traffic stop, but Captain George Brown of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a helpful tip for anyone who’s worried: If you just “follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over” in the first place, you have nothing to worry about! That’s awesome to know, because I’m pretty sure no one has ever been pulled over for a tail light that’s out or a routine drunk-driving check. Or for no reason at all. But why dig into the root of the problem when we can issue inane advice about how women shouldn’t have gotten themselves into the situation in the first place? More »

Student Takes Matters Into Her Own Hands When Ivy League College Refuses To Expel Her Rapist

On the first day of her sophomore year of college, Emma Sulkowicz alleges she was raped in her dorm room by a classmate. Since then, she claims she’s had an uphill battle trying to convince administrators and police that she was, in fact, attacked. Now a senior, Emma has framed her senior thesis around a performance of sorts. She is carrying her mattress around on her back until she sees her attacker expelled. I can’t believe this is what it takes to get a rape accusation taken seriously. More »

‘Don’t Rape’ Should Trump ‘Stay Safe’ When We Talk About Campus Sexual Assault

'Don't Rape' Should Trump 'Stay Safe' When We Talk About Campus Sexual Assault

In August, female college students get bombarded with message after message reminding them that as soon as they move back to school, they have a laundry list of things to do to keep themselves from getting raped. A far more important message than that, though, that seems to be missing from all the coverage, is this: Hey, guys! Don’t rape people! More »

Woman Gives Anti-Drinking Poster A Much Needed Revamp To Omit All The Victim Blaming

National Health Service England released a set of “Know Your Limits” posters years ago, sending the message that people need to be aware of their limits when it comes to alcohol consumption. Fine – it’s a good enough effort to warn people about the dangers of alcohol. The campaign just took a bad turn with an image of a passed out woman and text that read, “One in three reported rapes happens when the victim has been drinking.” If you ever wondered what victim-blaming looks like, just take a gander at this poster… More »
