    From a woman who had two abortions, one after rape: “Had I been told the truth about the risks that I was taking with my body and about the developing persons inside of me, I know that I would not have made the decision to destroy life. There are those people who can deliberately take the life of another person, but that is not my nature. Yet I must live with the truth, because that is what I have done. I still feel that I probably couldn’t have loved that child conceived of rape, but there are so many people...

    I will never forget the first ultrasound of my unborn child. Expecting an idle smudge on a grainy screen, my wife and I were greeted by a hyperactive baby, all four flailing limbs foiling the doctor’s attempt at accurate measurement. Our child was beautiful, and very much alive. This week marks the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and across the country pro-lifers gather to profess the humanity of unborn children. However, as Brennan Manning noted in The Ragamuffin Gospel, “the danger of the pro-life position… is that it can be frighteningly selective.” Recent events provide repeated and disturbing evidence...

    Paul Nungesser was found “not responsible” for sexually assaulting another student at Columbia University. The student who accused him, Emma Sulkowicz, has since began carrying a mattress around the university as part of an art project to protest a finding she claims was unfair. Sulkowicz’s activism earned her an invitation to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night from Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. When Nungesser heard of the invitation, he blasted the senator for rewarding Sulkowicz’s attacks against him. “I am shocked to learn that Sen. Gillibrand is actively supporting Ms. Sulkowicz’s defamation campaign against me by providing...

    The Colbert Report‘s replacement, The Nightly Show, has only been on the air for two days, but its host Larry Wilmore has already gone after Bill Cosby. As Vulture reported, Wilmore opened last night’s show by addressing the fact that so many people are still doubting the women who are alleging that Cosby drugged and assaulted them, calling out Cosby for embarking on an ill-timed and poorly named comedy tour, and for shushing hecklers with a creepy “Shh…shh…” approach. Wilmore does have a point. It is a really bad idea to send someone in the middle of a high-profile sexual...

His committee had heard testimony from Jamie Leigh Jones, a 20 year old woman from Texas who took a job with Halliburton/KBR in Iraq in 2005. Jones testified that, during her first week in Iraq, she was drugged and gang-raped by coworkers. Haliburton/KBR, she said, moved her into a locked trailer when she reported this assault.

    The door is firmly shut to Bill Cosby's return to NBC, the network's top entertainment executive said Friday. 'That's safe to say,' NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Friday when asked if the network would ever again do a project with Cosby, who 30 years ago was the sitcom king with the network's 'The Cosby Show.' NBC's decision to sever ties with the 77-year-old comedian comes in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual assault against him, two lawsuits and a complaint to Los Angeles police earlier this week from a woman who says the comedian sexually abused her in...

Sullivan, the president of the university, said in a statement. In November, an article in Rolling Stone magazine detailed a student’s account of a 2012 gang rape at the fraternity, which prompted Ms. Sullivan to suspend all fraternities through the end of the...

    Around 30 female protesters disrupted Bill Cosby's stand-up comedy show in Hamilton, Ontario Friday night, yelling "We believe the women." The Hollywood Reporter witnessed as the comedian grimly attempted to calm his fans while police and security guards moved in to end the disruption. Then, just as Cosby launched into his comedy act, roughly 30 women rose from their seats, removed their coats to display white t-shirts emblazoned with the words "We Believe the Women" across the front and backs to launch their protest. Some of the women blew whistles, while others shouted down Cosby by chanting "we believe the...

According to court records, hospital worker Jimmy Savile had at least 103 victims across 28 hospitals where he worked over the years. He abused victims from as young as five to as old as 75 years old. His celebrity status at the local hospitals from his charity work allowed him access to patients and oftentimes suspicious staff turned their heads, not wanting to know who Savile actually was. This week, courts heard about one terrible case in particular. This...

    One of the secular left’s latest windmills at which to tilt is America’s fanciful “rape culture.” There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another of their pet nemeses). Paradoxically, these “progressive” Don Quixotes actually believe in said “rape culture,” something that, outside of Islam, does not exist, while they disbelieve in their Creator, Christ Jesus, who both did and does exist. Exhibit A, of course, is the now-debunked UVA fraternity gang-rape hoax concocted in the disturbed minds...

Investigators stopped short of saying who exactly beat Mattson, but said the person was "acting in defense for the victim." Mattson was then arrested and taken...

The agreement represents the latest example of how the Obama administration's aggressive use of Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender at schools that receive federal funding, is reverberating across the country's institutions of higher learning.

    There are few figures in popular media that I find less interesting than Lena Dunham.It has always seemed to me that the absurdly copious acclaim she receives from moribund institutions of spent cultural relevance like The New York Times were inversely proportional to her observable significance. She was a useful totem for the cultural left; unconventional, counter-cultural, a writer and performer on a modestly popular show that exalts lasciviousness, and, most importantly, an activist progressive. As such, she needs to be aggrandized even though her commendations are not entirely earned and her vast influence cannot be independently confirmed. I...

The Alternet version asks: Stories like the virgin birth lack freely given female consent. Why don’t they bother us more? Perhaps they “don’t … bother us more” because to view such stories, like Tarico does, as “rapey” is what’s really bothersome. To claim that Mary was raped is incorrect, especially considering that since Mary...

That apparently all-male team includes $850-an-hour Hollywood lawyer Martin Singer (whose clients include Charlie Sheen and Arnold Schwarzenegger), former William Morris agent Norman Brokaw, his publicist son David, and New York lawyer John P Schmitt.

    It stands to reason that if abortion is viewed as morally and legally correct, other immoral acts will become socially acceptable as well. Now, according to a judge in Australia, incest is one of those acts. During the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister, Judge Garry Neilson said that incest may no longer be morally unacceptable because the only reason it is criminal is due to the potential for abnormalities in any conceived children. Neilson said that thanks to contraception and abortion, there is no longer that risk. The man on trial had raped his sister...

When it comes to rapes, Islamized Sweden is already in a state of war. Sweden does not publish statistics on immigrant crime. If we want to have a hint about who is committing these tens of thousands of rapes and other types of sexual assaults yearly, we can turn to another Scandinavian country, Sweden’s neighbor Norway, the country...

Lachele Covington, 20, who has appeared on Cosby’s CBS TV show, filed a police report saying the beloved comedian put her hand under his T-shirt and guided it south toward his sweatpants, the sources said. But Covington said she pulled her hand away — and that was the end of that. She told Cosby she was leaving and he said, “That’s fine.”

    Camille Cosby arrived in California as a striking young beauty with a dazzling smile and a keen sense for fashion. People compared her to Lena Horne. Yet, she was ill-suited for the role of Hollywood spouse. She likes to think of herself as “real,” she has said. Hollywood didn’t seem real. It seemed like a place for preening and pretending. Her husband soared to international celebrity as the first African American to star in a dramatic television series, appearing alongside the white actor Robert Culp in the hit show “I Spy,” which debuted in 1965. They had more money than...

    Valerie Tarico wrote an article at Alternet, republished at Salon, that should get her a lot of invites to ironically themed liberal Christmas parties.  The title: "Why rape is so intrinsic to religion." Tarico lays out a series of myths from pagan traditions, mostly Greek and Roman, in which women are abducted, violated, and coerced.  We have Danae, Europa, Rea Silvia...and, what do you know, the Virgin Mary. Notably, Tarico avoids using the same dire language for the Blessed Mother that she uses for the pagan myths: "[I]n the Gospel of Luke, the Virgin Mary gets pregnant when the...

    Bill Cosby hasn't been "America's dad" for years. For some blacks, he is the cranky uncle complaining about young African Americans who, in his view, dress and behave in a way that drags down their race.

    Ah, Christmas — the season for joy, tolerance, and goodwill amongst all. Usually in these days, media outlets queue up the glurge — the sappy stories, the tearjerker videos, and the essays about finding meaning in a season defined by religion and its observance. Everyone likes to tap into the happy memories and high ideals of the Christmas season.Well, almost everyone. For some reason, Salon chose this week to offer two dyspeptic and nonsensical takes on religion, the most outrageous of which argues that one has to support rape in order to be Christian. God raped the Virgin Mary, so...

    "This is the worst attack on an athlete that we have ever seen in the history of amateur sports," his attorney, David Cornwell, said Monday on NBC Sports Radio.... Part of that is because his own doing (see: Burger King, Publix, FSU Student Union). There's a big difference, however, between being a serial knucklehead and a rapist. It didn't help Winston that the incident occurred as "rape culture" awareness was skyrocketing on campuses. The Washington Post recently ran a column titled, "We Should Automatically Believe Rape Victims." As FSU was struggling in a game against Boston College, a San Francisco...

    The total discrediting of Rolling Stone's story on rape at the University of Virginia has shined a light on one of the least palatable features of American life: the so-called epidemic of rape on campus. Authorities from Barack Obama on down have cited the phony statistic that one in five college women is raped. Phony because it's based on a 2007 survey conducted in two Midwestern schools not of a random sample, but of a small number of self-selected respondents and includes unwanted touching and kissing as "sexual assault." A Department of Justice survey released this month presents a different...

    At least three rapes and 22 sexual assaults have been perpetrated against men in the armed forces in the two years to October 2014, according to new figures released under a freedom of information request. The statistics reveal that a 20-year-old serviceman was allegedly subjected to "assault by penetration" last February by a group of seven men aged between 21 and 33, according to The Times. A second servicemen aged 28 was also reportedly attacked in a similar manner in May by another gang of seven colleagues aged between 20 and 26. Three servicemen, one as young as 18, were...

    Powerful gods and demi-gods impregnating human women—it’s a common theme in the history of religion, and it’s more than a little rapey. Zeus comes to Danae in the form of a golden shower, cutting “the knot of intact virginity” and leaving her pregnant with the Greek hero, Perseus. Jupiter forcibly overcomes Europa by transforming himself into a white bull and abducting her. He imprisons her on the Isle of Crete, over time fathering three children. Pan copulates with a shepherdess to produce Hermes. The legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus are conceived when the Roman god Mars impregnates Rea...

    **SNIP** McKee said she’d like to see Cosby sit for a lie-detector test. She also called it “embarrassing” that Cosby’s wife of 51 years, Camille, released a statement suggesting her husband was the “victim.” “I knew (Camille). We’d been to dinner, all of us, many times,” McKee said. “This is not a stupid woman. She has her head buried in the sand."
