    UK Daily Mail ^ | July 7, 2015 | Owen Holdaway
    Two Yazidi women have told of the unimaginable cruelty they suffered at the hands of ISIS fighters who kept them as their sex slaves after raiding their homes in Iraq. One, a 19-year-old mother, says she allowed her first captor who 'bought her' to rape her 'whenever he wanted' because he would beat her one-year-old baby son if she resisted. Her son was the only thing stopping her from taking her own life. Her second jailer raped an elderly mother and her daughter. The second woman, 25, was sold again and again to a string of cruel fanatics who tied...

    The comedy legend, long silent about accusations lodged against him, admitted to getting drugs for the purposes of drugging women—in his own words On July 6, the Associated Press reported that Bill Cosby testified in 2005 he had obtained Quaaludes to drug young women and had indeed dosed at least one woman. This admission, from a lawsuit that was settled in 2006, should move the Cosby controversy forward in a major way. Certain aspects of it just can’t be controversial anymore.
  • APNewsBreak:Cosby said he got drugs to give women for sex

    Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he got Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and he admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman and "other people," according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents; Cosby's lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client. The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.

    The Social Memo ^ | 7/5/15 | Aurelius
    If you vote Republican, there's a good chance you're doing it because you want to "hurt people of Color." That's one of the messages from Everyday Feminism's new article, "Here Are the Real Reasons Why We White People Struggle to Admit That Racism Still Exists." The author, Jamie Utt, says that "we whites" need to realize the evil we're perpetrating. One of the "reasons" why white people can't admit that racism still exists is that "White People Have an Emotional Stake in Denying White Supremacy," he explains. "Because that way, we can avoid dealing with how we’re complicit in its...

    Bill Cosby will not be charged in connection with actress Lili Bernard’s allegations that the comedian sexually assaulted her in Atlantic City in the early 1990s. “The office of the Atlantic County Prosecutor has terminated its investigation, closed its file and so notified Ms. Bernard’s lawyer,” Edwin J. Jacobs, Jr., Cosby’s New Jersey attorney at Jacobs & Barbone, said via a release. When Bernard first spoke with police this past May, her case appeared to be a lynchpin in the ongoing Cosby scandal due to New Jersey’s lack of a statute of limitations on rape. However, that change in law...

    President Obama’s admission that some “gang-bangers” are crossing America’s southern border sparked a direct response from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has been criticized for his remarks on illegal immigration during his official campaign announcement. “Mr. Trump has repeatedly provided additional context to his remarks from June 16th, 2015 during which he addressed the severely detrimental effects of illegal immigration and described some of the issues that are brought to the United States as a result, much like President Obama has done today,” reads Trump’s press release. “There are few occasions on which I agree with statements made by...

Rape trees have been known of since at least 2009, but they tend not to feature in any discussions of comprehensive immigration reform.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said most of the potential suspects were Asian men, while the vast majority of victims were young British girls.

Victoria Valentino claims she was so shaken by her experience with Cosby that she decided to leave Hollywood altogether when she was just 24 years old. "He put a pill down next to my wine glass and he said, 'Here, take this you'll feel better.' I was in that place where, sure, I'd like to feel better, so I took the pill," Valentino said.

    Judd Apatow continues to throw shade, shade, shade at Bill Cosby, months after the media firestorm over his rape allegations has subsided. Cosby, 77, is accused of sexually assaulting at least 40 women since the '60s. He has denied the allegations, which resurfaced last October, and has never been charged with a crime over them. He has meanwhile continued performing standup comedy. However, his onscreen career has stalled. The controversy had drawn a slew of mocking tweets and the star that appears to be the least relentless is Apatow, 47, who has often slammed him online. "I can't believe we...

The former student, whose name has not been made public, was expelled after his alleged victim, the roommate of his girlfriend, complained some 21 months after the incident and despite what evidence appears to show was consensual sex.

Kirsten Gillibrand, which would remove military sexual assault cases from the chain of command. The New York Democrat needed 60 votes to add her legislation to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), currently before the Senate. Gillibrand criticized President Obama, suggesting that he hasn't done enough to tackle the issue as commander in chief. "He promised he would address this issue," Gillibrand said. "I expect more, and I expect more leadership." It’s the second...

The woman he allegedly assaulted was fully lucid. How did that happen? It didn’t. The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that the male student did nothing wrong.

    We’ve been hearing about the issue of sibling abuse lately because of the Duggar situation. How should Christians handle issues of abuse? First and foremost, it’s important for parents to not ignore the suspected abuse. Sometimes the thought is almost too much to comprehend, so it’s easier to just assume the best and hope it’s not happening—and that’s a big mistake. The best thing parents can do is address the situation head-on. I would encourage parents to speak to a qualified child psychologist in their area. Then I always recommend that when it doubt, always contact law enforcement. This is...

    Over the course of the last half-century, the media has botched its coverage of numerous high profile crimes. Sometimes, the reporting is intentionally inaccurate because the reporter is interested in advancing a certain worldview, rather than simply reporting the news. Among the worst examples of this is the now 51-year-old story of the rape and murder of Kitty Genovese. You’ve probably heard the story before. Genovese was returning from her job as a bartender in the middle of a March night in Queens, New York, in 1964. A man named Winston Moseley who had raped and killed other women attacked...

    A top-ranking official at the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights has emerged as a potentially key figure in Rolling Stone’s false article, “A Rape on Campus.” Catherine Lhamon, who heads the Department’s civil rights wing, was identified in a letter sent last month by University of Virginia Dean of Students Allen Groves to Steve Coll and Sheila Coronel, the two Columbia Journalism School deans who conducted a review of the Nov. 19 article, written by disgraced reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely. Groves’ letter was included as a footnote to the Columbia deans’ report, which was released on Sunday...

    UVA associate dean Nicole Eramo is suing Rolling Stone and writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely for statements in Rolling Stone’s now-retracted “A Rape on Campus” story. How will courts likely deal with this lawsuit? Here are a few early and tentative thoughts, though of course much depends on facts that are not yet known. 1. Federal vs. state court: Eramo sued in Virginia state court, but it seems likely that Rolling Stone and Erdely will want the case removed to federal court: The conventional wisdom is that libel defendants are procedurally better off in federal court, where it’s easier to get...

    On Saturday, Chuck C. Johnson invited his Twitter followers to send some money his way so that he could focus on his latest project: “taking out” the civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson. Johnson is a 26-year-old California man who has been described as “Twitter’s most infamous right-wing troll” (Mother Jones), a “digital Darth Vader” (Politico), “your least favorite person” (the Washington Post), and “mood slime” (the New York Times). He is best known for outing the subject at the center of the discredited Rolling Stone UVA story, publishing the home addresses of New York Times Ferguson reporters Julie Bosman and...

    WASHINGTON — Just as Sen. Bernie Sanders’ progressive presidential challenge to Hillary Clinton is gaining steam, an old essay of his has surfaced in which he says women fantasize “being raped by 3 men simultaneously.” “A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused,” Sanders, 73, wrote in 1972 for an alternative newspaper called the Vermont Freeman. “A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.” In another part of the article he wrote: “Do you know why the newspapers...
  • Remember when Jim Bob Duggar said incest should be punishable by death?

    After last week’s shocking admission that he’d molested his sisters as a teenager, former “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar has put his parents in quite a pickle. While Josh has (deservedly) received plenty of backlash from his admission, his parents have also come under heavy scrutiny for how they have handled the situation. ..... However, it’s worth noting where Jim Bob, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2002, actually stands on the issue of incest and rape — or at least what he told the public while he was running for office. According to Gawker, who...

    Here we have an actual -- non-political -- war on women, via the Washington Post: Amid all the Islamic State's atrocities — its massacres of civilians, its beheading of hostages, its pillaging of antiquities — the systematic violence the jihadists have carried out against countless enslaved women and girls never fails to shock. For months now, we've heard appalling testimony from women who escaped the Islamic State's clutches, many of whom endured rape and other hideous acts of violence. Zainab Bangura, the U.N.'s special representative on sexual violence in conflict, recently conducted a tour of refugee camps in the shadow of the...

    On Friday, I published at Breitbart the horrifying reminiscences of a British woman who suffered repeated gang rapes, beatings and abuse from a Muslim rape gang, while police dismissed her complaints with total indifference. Now this courageous woman has revealed to me more details of what she and other girls have suffered at the hands of these rape gangs: After awhile, the worst thing was not what happened for me – as horrifying as it was, I got used to it. What was worst for me was seeing the other girls they did this to. I was used to it,...
  • Pregnant at 17 After a Brutal Rape and Encouraged to Abort, Here’s How I Responded

    I’ve been there. I was 17, drugged and raped. When I learned I was pregnant, my family, counselors, and doctors took control. They intended the best. They wanted to help me. And even though there are literally no studies showing any benefit from abortion, they had total confidence in the social myth that abortion is the best option, even the only option, in cases of sexual assault. Even many pro-lifers approve of abortions in cases of rape. So surely it must be the best choice, right? Not in my case. It just added more layers of trauma, self-doubt, grief and...

    In the wake of a tabloid report alleging that he molested several underage girls while he was a teenager, reality-television star Josh Duggar said Thursday that he “acted inexcusably” and was “deeply sorry” for what he called “my wrongdoing.” The 27-year-old Duggar, a high-profile member of the evangelical Christian family that stars on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” also resigned his post with the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying organization. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Duggar said in a statement posted on Facebook on Thursday....

    Model Janice Dickinson sued Bill Cosby for defamation on Wednesday over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him last year of raping her in 1982. Dickinson’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages on defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims. The suit states Dickinson has been re-victimized and her reputation has suffered because of pointed denials by Cosby’s attorney that the comedian drugged and raped her in a Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room more than 30 years ago. The allegations were first made in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” after numerous other women accused Cosby of...

    Emma Sulkowicz, known for carrying a mattress around campus for what she claims is a protest of Columbia University's failure to punish her rapist, is hoping to cash in on her alleged art project. Sulkowicz told the New York Times after her graduation on Tuesday — where she carried her mattress across the stage — that she would sell the mattress if offered. "If some sort of museum wants to buy it, then I'm open to that," she said, "but I'm not going to just throw it away." Sulkowicz has for the past year carried her mattress around for course...
