Fraternity Female Degradation Ceremonies

End the violence against women!

End the violence against women!

In college I grew to hate frat boys. They didn’t always deserve it, but too many did.

At San Diego State “The Daily Aztec” reported on a fraternity accused of shouting racial epithets at strippers. Read the rest of this entry

drinkingIt’s almost universal that gang rape victims are intoxicated, and for some reason when alcohol gets involved, a drunk woman did it to herself.

Virtually Attack Women, But No Nudity

Boys playing video games.

Boys playing video games.

A gamer creates an avatar resembling himself and plots to kill a three-dimensional, lifelike woman. The avatar grasps an axe and raises it to strike. He hears the thud as the axe slices her head. He hears her cry out in pain. He sees her split skull and feels the sensation of blood on his hands and face. 

I’ve just paraphrased one part of Supreme Court Justice, Samuel Alito’s opinion on whether video games of this sort should be protected as free speech in sales to minors.

Yes, he uncomfortably concludes. Read the rest of this entry

Super Bowl sex trafficking

By Courtney Cooper and Wesley Russell

This originally appeared in the San Jose Mercury News on January 20, 2016.

Sara Kruzan grew up with an abusive, drug addicted single mom. By age nine she was depressed and attempting suicide.

At age eleven she met an affectionate 30-year-old man who seemed to be the loving father figure she had yearned for. He said she was special. So special that people should pay for the privilege of having sex with her. Eventually, he had her walking the streets every night from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. In between displays of affection he terrorized and raped her to keep her in line.  Read the rest of this entry

Why do some guys handle their distress with violence?

Why do some men feel entitled, yet have such low self-esteem that they explode after a breakup?

“Bob” asked me those questions after a recent double murder-suicide: Read the rest of this entry

Why would Henriette Reker, the mayor of Cologne, Germany, blame women for being sexually assaulted?

You’ve probably heard about Cologne’s New Year’s Eve celebration, where groups of men — maybe more than 1,000 of them — surrounded individual women, groped them and stole their belongings. There were at least two rape accusations.

Yet the mayor merely told women to keep more than an arm’s length away from men? That’s hard to do in a congested square, where people are pushing to get in.

Or, maybe women should just avoid crowded festivities altogether? Read the rest of this entry

Dowry in Congo Objectifies Women

Bride Price

Bride Price

By DESIRE MAPALA

In my country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, a bride is seen as merchandise or an object.

That’s because a suitor typically pays dowry to his future in-laws: cash and goods, such as clothes for the bride’s parents, cows, goats, beverages, blankets, kitchen utensils, refrigerators, radios, and televisions.

Some people call it a “sale.” Read the rest of this entry

Pro-life Killer, Robert Dear

Women's bodies are not battlefields.

Women’s bodies are not battlefields.

It seems strange when a “pro-lifer” kills.

Like Robert Dear’s recent mass shooting.

Yet “pro-lifers” are less interested in sustaining life than in controlling women.

That sounds crazy, but check this out:

Pro-lifers aren’t really pro-life Read the rest of this entry
