2014: The Year All Rape Ended Forever Because It Never Existed Obviously

Our thoughts exactly
In the early days of 2014, the world was a simpler, happier place. Bill Cosby was still a kindly, grandfatherly funnyman and not a horrible monster rapist, and we all enjoyed playfully teasing him about his sweaters and Jell-O Pudding Pops until the joke was entirely played out and stale and not funny anymore, seriously, enough.

Are There Any Women Bill Cosby Didn’t (Allegedly) Rape?

No, none come to mind
Image via screen grab When woman after woman kept coming forward in the Tiger Woods adultery scandal, I kept hoping it would hit 18, just for all the wonderful “18 holes” jokes that would practically write themselves. Read more on Are There Any Women Bill Cosby Didn’t (Allegedly) Rape?…

Stalkers And Domestic Abusers Aren’t Allowed To Have Guns, Unfair!

Gabby Giffords at a gun show. Obviously wants to ban all guns
OK, so if 26 dead children in Newtown, and a couple hundred dead kids since then, aren’t a good enough reason to pass gun control of some kind — even just an expansion of background checks to cover gun shows and private sales — maybe the specter of domestic violence would be enough to motivate lawmakers? In hearings today, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony on the links between guns and domestic violence, and a new bill to restrict guns from suspects in stalking and domestic violence cases has been introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota). An editorial by Gabby Giffords called on Congress to pass Klobuchar’s bill, and to “address this lethal mix of domestic violence and guns.” Read more on Stalkers And Domestic Abusers Aren’t Allowed To Have Guns, Unfair!…

NPR Ruins Day With Facts About Violence Against Women

Everything was going fine today (3 mimosas for breakfast, followed by a margarita-laden lunch), and then this bad news had to be slapped in our earholes from NPR: Thirty-five percent of women around the world have been raped or physically abused, according to statistics the World Health Organization released Thursday. About 80 percent of the time this violence occurs in the home, at the hands of a partner or spouse. Fuckin A, NPR, this is really shitty. Can’t you lull me back to sleep at 6:40 am with Garrison Keiller reading another long poem about the red cat sleeping in the loft of a blue barn surrounded by …zzzzzz… Cause this is worse than reading WND comments, or even being forced to listen to Tucker Carlson read out highlights from the Daily Caller. THIRTY-FIVE PERCENT, people – that’s more than one in three women. Ugh, man. What do others think? “For me personally, this is a shockingly high figure,” says Karen Devries, an epidemologist from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Yeah, no shit, Karen. This should be goddam shocking for everyone, not just for you. Unfortunately, Congress had a few opportunities to try to help with this, but guess who got in the way (hint: the party that always looks to take the war on women global). Let’s wonksplain.  Read more on NPR Ruins Day With Facts About Violence Against Women…

Pennsylvania Town Plan to Curb ‘Disorderly Conduct’ Includes Evicting Battered Women

Gosh. Norristown, Pennsylvania seems like it must be a real nice place to live what with its strict schoolmarm rule against “disorderly behavior.” In order to be fair, however, the rule applies not only to those who perpetrate “disorderly behavior” but also to those who might happen to be victims of it. Best legal system in the world! Watch and learn, America: The Norristown police notified a woman whose boyfriend assaulted her that she was being evicted for the crime of disturbing the peace by being assaulted too many times.

Comments From Indian Gang Rape Defendants’ Lawyer Unlikely To Win New Fans For Lawyers

We, as sinister far-left liberals, tend to believe in “fair trials,” “right to an attorney and due process,” “innocent until proven guilty” and all that other ACLU crap. Why, we even believe a lawyer must represent his clients to the best of his ability even when those clients are sickening monsters! Like, blah blah blah “liberal”! But sometimes representing your client to the best of your ability is best-served by keeping your damn fool mouth shut. Ladies and gentles, meet Manohar Lal Sharma, who represents three of the six men who have been charged with raping an Indian woman to death on a bus.

Should You Give An Opinion On Rape?

Man, it is like you cannot even tenderly explain that “some girls, they rape so easy” without everyone making a FEDERAL CASE OUT OF IT. Paul Ryan is the latest fair-weather friend to drop an endorsement of poor misunderstood Wisconsin Rep. Roger Rivard, just for explaining his own father’s nuanced words of wisdom about how there may be hazy, ambiguous times when there is miscommunication about consent chicks will pretty much lie you to prison. We, as feminists in good standing, are happy to stipulate that in fact a girl lying about rape is possible, and in fact has happened at some points in history and in great literature! When we were explaining to our son about rape, though, we forgot to advise him to watch out lest bitchez accuse him of it some day, and just told him he was not to do it. So that is probably why it seems weird to us that by Rivard’s account his father didn’t seem too terribly concerned with making sure his son didn’t, say, actually rape people, but instead was being all like Kantian and/or postmodern about perception and stuff! “What the whole genesis of it was, it was advice to me, telling me, ‘If you’re going to go down that road, you may have consensual sex that night and then the next morning it may be rape.’ So the way he said it was, ‘Just remember, Roger, some girls, they rape so easy. It may be rape the next morning,'” Rivard told the Journal Sentinel. But let us get to the important question: Should you give an opinion on rape? Let’s explore the answer in a safe place, after the jump! Read more on Should You Give An Opinion On Rape?…

Neo-Nazi Greek Politician Beats On Lady Politician On Live TV (VIDEO)

Well, this is great. During a live television debate on Thursday between a bunch of Greek politicians (its broke citizens go to the broken polls on June 17), Ilias Kasidiaris, a spokesperson for and member of the terrifyingly named neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn, tossed a glass of water at a lady rival, Rena Dourou of the left-leaning Syriza party, THEN slapped another lady politician, Liana Kanelli of KKE, the communist party, twice. This after an exchange of insults including “you old commie!” (he to she) and “fascist!” (she to he). The bestest part of this is that it is ONLINE! The second best part is that the reason Kasidiaris attacked the women is because they were asking him about a 2007 mugging that he has been implicated in. The trial about that mugging is ongoing, but it’s safe to say, um, innocent until proven to be a violent freak on national television.

GOP Would Love to Support Reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act, But, You Know

Anybody with half a brain (and specifically those with half a brain) knows that the GOP loves women — loves them just to death! — and it’s the Democratic leadership like Louis C.K. and Your Wonkette who call cunty women “cunts” so we are super-way-worse. So why is everybody ragging all over the poor maligned GOP? Because the Democrats are playing partisan political “tricks” on them, like forcing them to vote against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, that’s why! Twirl your mustaches, everybody! Twirl your mustaches for evil! Read more on GOP Would Love to Support Reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act, But, You Know…

Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder Enjoys Recreational Lady Stalking

Unmarried elected Republican lieutenant governor Peter Kinder loves throwing money at a hot former Penthouse lady reasonably close to his own age. That “scandal” only ranks about a three out of ten because… eh, there’s the “adult lady” part. But is there some fine print? Sure: “[Tammy] Chapman alleges that while she gave the state senator private dances, he would grab her by the shoulders and aggressively try to force her head into his lap. ‘He’d pull me down to his groin — really, really hard, to the point that it hurt me,’ she says.” More scandal-ish! But it’s hardly news that all male Republicans, even closeted ones, are always aroused by spiritual, political, economic and physical violence against women, so it’s not much of an exception as scandals go. Maybe still just a six? NOH WAIT, here it is: creepy red-faced ogre Kinder continued to hang around Chapman’s place of work even after she asked him not to visit and “found her” when she went to another employer and asked her to come live at his condo in order to “snuggle up” with him. That’s Jesus-speak for “sex until your brain bleeds tumors out your ears.” Ding ding ding! Elected official sex fiends never disappoint. Who’s paying for the condo, incidentally?
