    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."

    We are in the midst of a war on rape. From American campuses to British courthouses, from newspaper op-ed pages to the weird world of online petitions, ‘zero tolerance’ of rape has been declared. And who could possibly be against it? No one is ‘pro-rape’. So surely everyone will cheer a war on rape. Not so fast. Wars on rape have been declared before, and often for deeply reactionary reasons, having the effect of harming society rather than helping women. Consider the ‘war on rape’ declared in America’s Deep South in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when the KKK...

    Barack and Michelle Obama, speaking to People Magazine, of all disappointments, shared the disheartening news that they have experienced what they called racism. Barack, for example, apparently has had trouble, before he was president, hailing a cab in Chicago, to which an immediate thought might occur to anyone who has been to Chicago: Who hasn't? Also, Barack, at a black-tie event, when he, too, was in festive livery, apparently was asked by another guest if he would get them a cup of coffee. For her recollection, Michelle came up with a visit to a Target store as first lady. She...

    Yet another woman has come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of drugging and possibly taking advantage of her. On an episode of "Dr. Phil" airing on Friday, the talk show had seven of Cosby's accusers for guests, including a woman who was identified only as Lisa who said that she was drugged by the famous comedian more than two decades ago. Lisa had built a friendship with Cosby after being called to audition for him when she was a model in the 1980s. "I was very excited to go and see him," Lisa told Dr. Phil. "I was starstruck. I...

    This isn’t one of those articles where I ask a question in the headline and provide the answer in the text. Because the truth is, I don’t know how someone accused of sexual assault is supposed to prove they obtained consent under the new “yes means yes” policies. And it looks like no one else knows either. I reached out to the lead sponsor of the California affirmative consent law, state Sen. Kevin de Leon, because when I tried asking other sponsors of the bill, they directed me to him.

    Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who came forward last week to claim she was drugged by Bill Cosby, cites her daughter as one of the reasons she finally spoke out. It was her daughter, Anansa Sims, now 35, who first accompanied her to Cosby's Manhattan brownstone for brunch in the mid '80s, a few days before the comedian invited her back for an alleged audition. "My daughter loved him," Johnson wrote in Vanity Fair. It was only recently, after a series of women came forward claiming they had been drugged and assaulted by Cosby, that Johnson, 62, told her daughter she had...

    For the period 1995–2013, females ages 18 to 24 had the highest rate of rape and sexual assault victimizations compared to females in all other age groups. Within the 18 to 24 age group, victims could be identified as students enrolled in a college, university, trade school or vocational school or as nonstudents. Among student victims, 20% of rape and sexual assault victimizations were reported to police, compared to 32% reported among nonstudent victims ages 18 to 24.

And she's concerned that the misogyny of porn five decades later will victimize another generation of naive young women. The British-born star is speaking out about being raped after her attacker showed her hardcore pornography and drugged her at the tender age of 17. She went on to marry him.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. A bill filed this month would require pregnant women to get permission from the father before having an abortion except in cases of incest and what the Missouri Republican who sponsored the legislation called "legitimate rape." If passed, state Rep. Rick Brattin's bill would require women to obtain notarized written permission from the father to terminate a pregnancy. The mandate would be waived for rape and incest. An identical bill by the Harrisonville lawmaker died in committee last session. "Just like any rape, you have to report it, and you have to prove it," Brattin told Mother...

    The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential ^ | December 17, 2014 | Ashe Schow
    California’s “yes means yes” law turns the idea of sexual consent upside down. Suddenly, nearly all sex is rape, unless no person involved reports it as such. Consent, under the California law that is spreading to other American universities, is required to be “ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time.” The law also states that “a lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent.” Also, previous sexual activity “should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.” The law also states that incapacitation due to drugs...

It was August 2012, and he was en route to Aviano Air Base to try a court-martial. Looking over the case, he could see why the judge advocate general, or JAG, at the base had requested him. Christensen had prosecuted more sexual-assault courts-martial than any other lawyer in the Air Force, and this case called for someone with experience. There would most likely be generals...

    About a month ago, Rolling Stone Magazine published a savage story that made headlines across North America, detailing a brutal gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity. Controversy erupted almost immediately, with the same tiresome lines being trumpeted: Feminists declaring that this assault was evidence of the prevalence of “rape culture,” and conservatives arguing that rape culture didn’t exist. As the UVA rape story began to unravel, feminists got rather shrill, justifiably worried that this could result in other anti-rape measures being taken less serious. Conservatives were a bit triumphant, rather ironically stating that this was another example of...

    Liberals continuously need another crisis to fundamentally transform a country into a socialist “Brave New World.” And the more shocking and/or disturbing the better.

Mega-hit Law and Order created a spin-off television series S.V.U. devoted exclusively to prosecution of sex crimes. Yet activists insist that society is encouraging rape. Yet the Rolling...

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office rejected filing a misdemeanor charge of annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18 because the statute of limitations had passed.

I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind,' Cosby told Page Six.

    WHO NEEDS THE TRUTH?: Dan Rather had to explain CBS’ fake story about President Bush 10 years ago. The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house at the University of Virginia has since suspended operations after Rolling Stone ran an article alleging a gang rape at the house. Again, a fake story. “Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.” You used to hear that occasionally in newsrooms, but the difference between then and now is, in the old days, they were kidding. Now, not so much. As the UVA rape story in the rag known as Rolling...

    American Thinker ^ | December 14, 2014 | R. B. Parrish
    The first thing President Teresa Sullivan of the University of Virginia needs to do in the wake of what now appears to be a faux rape scandal is to apologize to the victims – that is, to the members of Phi Kappa Psi, who have been vilified, forced to move off campus into motels, and suffered suspicions even from family members and close friends. That would be the human and moral response. That Sullivan will not do so is nearly as certain as the chance of her taking false accusations as a matter that needs university attention. This is for...

    What do Rolling Stone’s University of Virginia rape article and Senate CIA report have in common? Neither report talked to the accused. However, both also suffer from the same paralyzing component. Both reports' conclusions were determined before the facts were collected. Although each report touches on vastly different topics, they both expose a lack of unbiased critical thinking necessary for the honest, intellectual presentation of the facts. Both reports are a product of an “end justifies the means” philosophy, where the authors start with a desired conclusion and build the “facts” to support that end. Both reports are a demonstration...

    A woman who has for years accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her filed a defamation lawsuit Wednesday claiming the fallen funnyman sullied her “good name and reputation” when he branded her a liar. Tamara Green, 66, filed her claim in federal court in Massachusetts, alleging the comedian, through lawyers and publicists, negligently disregarded the truth and willfully induced “an evil opinion of her.” Green, a retired lawyer, said the "pattern" of public shaming started when she first stepped forward in 2005 with claims Cosby drugged and groped her in the 1970s after hiring her to help him...

    Bill Cosby broke his silence Friday, albeit briefly, to lecture the media on remaining “neutral” and to say that his wife is standing by him. Reached at his Massachusetts home, the star declined to address the rape and sex abuse allegations from an ever-growing list of women that now includes supermodel Beverly Johnson. Instead, Cosby, 77, said that the African-American media — for which this reporter often writes — should be impartial. “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in...
  • Are College Fraternities the SAFEST Places for Women to Socialize?

    Think about it. The left is constantly trying to portray college fraternities as being chock full of white guys who use their "privilege" to demean women to the extent of mass raping them. So how many such cases of college frat gang rape have been found? Try ZERO. The left had high hopes with the Rolling Stoned UVA frat alleged rape case but that fairy tale has fallen apart. If there were instances of rapes at college frat parties wouldn't they have already been discovered and PROVEN? Therefore I have to conclude that the safest place for women on campuses...

    In December 2012, Jackie broke down. All of a sudden she was going home and none of us knew why. It was right before finals, and I couldn’t believe she was leaving. She was distraught, and only said she needed to go home. Her teachers had given her allowance to take her finals over break. At that point, we knew something big had happened. I didn’t know until this year with the publication of Rolling Stone’s article how bad that time was for her. Sometime that year I remember her letting it slip to me that she had had a...

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Formal charges are pending against a high-profile abortion doctor in the metro. Now, one of his former patients breaks her silence over what she calls ‘the worst experience of her life.’ Dr. Patel was arrested earlier this week for fraud. Investigators say he lied to women in order to charge them more for abortions that were, at times, unnecessary. Unlike the undercover agents Patel falsely identified as pregnant, this woman was pregnant when she went to his office. She also has a heart condition that was making it a very difficult pregnancy. She claims Dr. Patel lied...
