There will be more Rotherham-style child sexual exploitation scandals unearthed in the coming months as the ďstone is liftedĒ on the scale of abuse perpetrated on the young, one of Britainís top police officers has warned. In an interview with the Guardian, Simon Bailey, chief constable of Norfolk police, who is the leading officer concerned with child abuse within the Association of Chief Police Officers, said that sex crimes involving children had for ďtoo long been a hidden crimeĒ.

    According to Lena Dunham's memoir "Not That Kind of Girl," the same man who allegedly raped her and hurt two other women is still on the loose. According to our own reporting, Dunham has not volunteered to cooperate with authorities in order to get her rapist off the street. Early Saturday morning, Dunham appeared to tweet excuses for the man she claims raped her. During a book tour appearance earlier this month, Dunham told Howard Stern that not all rapists are "straight-forward villains." Dunham's tweets, though, represent the first time she appears to have made excuses for the man she...

    Pedophilia, in the sense of the persistent sexual attraction to children, is a disorder, not a crime, and deserves special protections in law. That‚Äôs the premise of a recent New York Times opinion piece by Rutgers law professor Margo Kaplan, who argues that ‚Äústigma‚ÄĚ surrounding adults who are sexually attracted to children prevents them from seeking psychological help.¬†As a result, Kaplan asserts, pedophiles should be protected by the same anti-discrimination laws that require society to accommodate other ‚Äúdisabilities.‚ÄĚ‚ÄúBy some estimates, 1 percent of the male population continues, long after puberty, to find themselves attracted to prepubescent children. These people are...

In the darkness, a freshman football player would be pinned to the locker room floor, his arms and feet held down by multiple upperclassmen. Then, the victim would be lifted to his feet while a finger was forced into his rectum. Sometimes, the same finger was then shoved into the freshman playerís mouth.

    A damning report earlier this year into the Rotherham sex abuse scandal found police and council bosses turned a blind eye to the exploitation for fear of being labelled racist. Some victims were gang raped, while others were groomed and trafficked across northern England by groups of mainly Asian men. The report by Prof Alexis Jay, the former chief inspector of social work in Scotland, said senior officials were responsible for ďblatantĒ failures that saw victims treated with contempt, ignored or categorised as ďout of controlĒ when they asked for help.

California proposes to stop campus rape and sexual assault with a law redefining consent. Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation last week specifying that verbal consent must precede all sexual activity. Further, consent cannot be given if someone is incapacitated by drugs or alcohol. Twenty...

Last December a woman writing in the comments section of the website xoJane, going by the name Joanie Faircloth, claimed Oberst raped her when she was a teenager. The charge spread across the Internet; Oberst denied it and brought a libel suit against Faircloth when she refused to retract the story.

    Florida State announced Wednesday that starting quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended for the first half of the No. 1 Seminoles' game vs. Clemson on Saturday for yelling an "offensive and vulgar" phrase in the student union on FSU's campus. Deadspin collected a number of tweets from Florida State students who said they saw Winston standing on a table Tuesday "screaming" the phrase (one made popular by a series of recent viral hoax videos), which uses graphic sexual language. (Both links use the phrase and other R-rated language.)

    A Santa Rosa man convicted for a second time in a series of gang rapes was again sentenced Tuesday to 75 years to life in prison. Rogelio Carlos-Zaragoza, 29, was convicted of abducting women in Santa Rosa in 2006 and 2009 and driving two of them to a remote Windsor vineyard, where he raped them with up to three other men. He was caught with his older brother, Leonel Carlos-Zaragoza, after grabbing an 18-year-old victim at knifepoint along Dutton Avenue and getting in a chase with CHP officers on Highway 101. Both men were convicted in 2010. The brother is...
  • Federal Judge Envisions 'Rape License' for 'Right to Rape'

    https://www.google.com/search?q=rape+Judge+Richard+PosnerJudge Richard Posner advocated issuance of a "license to rape" in a 2011 book he wrote. Posner contradicts the presupposition that it's always wrong for a man to rape a woman. This idea, according to Posner in his 2011 book "Economic Analysis of the Law" (8th edition), is evidently an equally archaic tradition that, like the institution of natural marriage, needs a significant overhaul. Posner writes that perhaps it's time the government begin issuing "rape licenses" since, and based upon an exclusively utilitarian and morally relative cost-benefit analysis, the "right to rape," for some men at least, "exceeds the victim's...

    The federal government is in desperate need of both rape and sexual harassment victims. These victims are needed in order to justify sweeping nationwide changes to the campus judiciary. These changes include holding quasi-rape trials on college campuses using a preponderance of evidence standard, instead of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Also included in these changes is suspension of double jeopardy protection so that women can repeatedly try accused rapists until they achieve the desired result of conviction, regardless of actual guilt or innocence. In order to achieve such an affront to widely accepted principles of due process an epidemic...

    A defrocked Catholic priest has been found guilty of raping dozens of children and a sled dog in the Canadian Arctic, where he worked as a missionary for decades. The Belgian-born Eric Dejaeger, 67, was on Friday convicted of 31 counts of sexual offences against children and one count of bestiality. At the start of his trial last November in Iqaluit, the capital of Canada's northernmost Nunavut territory, Dejaeger acknowledged and pleaded guilty to eight out of 80 original charges.

    At Ohio State University, to avoid being guilty of ¬ďsexual assault¬Ē or ¬ďsexual violence,¬Ē you and your partner now apparently have to agree on the reason WHY you are making out or having sex. It¬ís not enough to agree to DO it, you have to agree on WHY: there has to be agreement ‚Äúregarding the who, what, where, when, why, and how this sexual activity will take place.‚ÄĚThere used to be a joke that women need a reason to have sex, while men only need a place. Does this policy reflect that juvenile mindset? Such a requirement baffles some women...

Last week the Daily Mail interviewed a bus driver from Peshawar who says, after his shift is over, he likes to go into the slums and rape street kids. Sometimes he pays them a dollar. But often he doesnít Ė he just joins in a big gang rape. ďOnce, there was a boy on the bus and everyone had sex with him,Ē he told the Daily Mail....
