Rape

Ugh, Todd Akin, right? You remember Todd Akin, of course. He was a Republican representative from Missouri who just might have become a senator from Missouri if he had not made the catastrophic mistake, as Republicans are wont to do, of opening his mouth and saying words. And you remember those words because we all […]

Stacey Dash is hip and young-(ish) and pretty and conservative and also knows who should get raped, and it is Kanye West. In a segment prefaced by blonde Fox bot Sandra Smith saying, “File this one under Just Stop Talking, People!” Dash took Kanye West to task for his ill-advised comparison of paparazzi and rapists, suggesting […]

Here’s a nifty Daily Show sketch for colleges to file away for new student orientations: following several notorious cases of sexual assault on campus, Jordan Klepper and Jessica Williams offer tips for smart partying — for bros, reminders to not embarrass yourself, and for the ladies, reminders that the bros may very well rape you. […]

Well how’s this for brand expansion? At some point that we were blessedly unaware of, the Breitbart Empire got itself a London bureau, and yesterday it ran a thoughtful piece explaining that, for the sake of not harming any innocent victims, anonymity for rape suspects should be the norm. After all, no decent fellow should […]

Eleven years ago, the Supreme Court decided Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down laws saying you couldn’t put your peener in another adult man’s butthole. (At least, that was how Antonin Scalia characterized it in his “colorful” dissent!) Well time moves slowly in ol’ Alabammy, as it was just three days ago that an appeals […]

So here’s a new take on why evolution — or as the producers of this video from Creation Today put it, “evolution,” with scare quotes ’cause there’s no such thing — cannot possibly be true. Nice man Darek Isaacs has been reading up on “evolution,” and he realized that “evolution” inevitably leads to a “very, […]

Oh wow, George Will has committed his thoughts to paper again and they are very special. He says that colleges and the White House have made being a sexual assault victim a “coveted status.” He says it is “preposterous” to believe that 20% of college-age women have been sexually assaulted while in school, since this […]

Hey there, Glenn Beck! Thanks for being a regular feature on Wonkette this week, you beady-eyed cocksucker. You’ve really brought the crazy and the stupid and the crazy-stupid these last few days, for which we commend you. Your latest, this terrible sketch in which one of your minions mocked studies that indicate a widespread sexual […]

Some days we watch videos like this one and think maybe the wingnuts are right when they claim that evolution is a lie. Because the people who put this thing together cannot possibly qualify as evolved, intelligent life forms. Seriously, the collective EEG readings for all the alleged humans who appear in this ode to […]

We could probably write a “terribly inadequate rape sentences” post every day with our eyes closed and one hand tied behind our backs. Today, we’ve got Sir Young, who at age 18 raped a 14-year-old girl, a crime for which he could have received a 20 year sentence but because everything in this country is […]

The White House has released a report on campus sex assault, which is good because apparently we forgot to Take Back the Night at Occidental, and Patrick Henry, and, hmmm, all the other colleges and universities in the entire land. Luckily, here is Joe Biden to YELL AT RAPISTS AND DOMESTIC ABUSERS. Let’s watch, together!

So much happy! So little time! Sean Hannity SO MAD at Jon Stewart, SOOOO MAD! OPRAH’s ex-stepmom sounds like a real nice lady who calls her stepdaughter “ghetto,” laughs at her taste, calls her a lesbian, and then is : ( that Oprah won’t let her live in her mansion. How does Upworthy think you’re […]

I kind of feel like we shouldn’t really need a trigger warning in the headline up there, considering the word “rape” is already in it. But since we’re not going to add a trigger warning every time we post a picture of a “thin-bodied” person (tw #thinbodied tw), or start asking people what pronouns they’d […]

Great news, everyone! Brad Pitt wants to make a movie about the awful terrible no good very bad ordeal frequently referred to as the Steubenville rape. (Can it please be starring Brad Pitt? Please? We hope so because mmmmmmm, Brad Pitt.) This seems like a really great idea, because there are not a lot of […]

Welcome to another edition of Derp Roundup, the weekly feature where we bring you stories that didn’t quite merit a post of their own, but that were too stupid to ignore altogether. As always, you may want to fortify yourself with whatever you believe necessary to get through the experience — we suggest a couple […]
