Kids talk about women they admire
First the whole situation with the monster in Cleveland holding women hostage in his house for 10 years http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/08/ariel-castro-had-ropes-an_n_3237412.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular
Makes this news item about University of Montana football players getting away with rape repeatedly seem minor in comparison, but it is part of the same attitude that keeps women in a position of “other,” less than, something to abuse and discard.
Never mind how our justice system treats rape and domestic abuse. The Cleveland monster, Ariel Castro, apparently beat his ex-wife so badly that he broke her nose and collarbone once. Went to court. No jail time. If he had done so to a stranger…?!
Yesterday, an activist nun was convicted for breaking into a base and destroying government property.
She faces TWENTY years in prison for “sabotage”.
The Steubenville rapists? got the minimum sentence for their crime- min 1 year in youth prison…..
Have to say the news this week only confirms we still have major issues in this country with violence against women and gender discrimination overall.
Perfect for GWS! any comments? even if it is tongue in cheek….
On this day in LIFE — May 7, 1971: Saucy feminist that even men like.
Oh my… Did we really say that?
Today in forms of irony that simply shouldn’t exist: This ugly, depressing story.
True story: The Department of Defense was all set to hire 829 new sexual assault response coordinators to combat the epidemic of rape in the military and then…sequestration.
