burn. He’d do just as well or even better in a college judicial process.
So despicable that this is accurate.
Take a stand against gendercide! Join me and @ItsAGirlMovie and share this now:
Few things in the world make me as sad as this.
Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”

A medieval device for a medieval deed - yes.
Anyone ever think that maybe we should provide this to female members of our military? Since the sexual assualt prevention method doesn’t seem to be working. Good luck dismissing cases when there’s irrefutable proof.
Also, please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this is a brilliant idea.
AB 1266 would prohibit discrimination against transgender students in every public school district. The bill would “require that a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities including athletic teams and competitions.” The bill also requires public schools to allow facilities, such as bathrooms and locker rooms, to be used “consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.
California assembly passes transgender equality bills.
About freaking time! I don’t understand how we can see how bad racism is, but be totally blind to sexist segregation. It’s the same kind of mentality, just in regards to gender, not skin color. It’s really not that complicated people.
On my way to watch the women & comedy project in Philadelphia on behalf of the local organization Women’s Way!
She nails it.
This is my largest issue with the military, and why I have such a hard time being so ‘gung-ho’ about the institution. I have no doubt that there are many honorable men and women who have protected our freedoms and fought for our rights, but there are far too many individuals who join the services and abuse that power it brings in horrific ways. 19,000 victims, 19,000, and only 240 go to trial. I want to punch that Lieutenant in the face, for his inability to acknowledge that the convening authority is failing the women of our country. There obviously was NO integrity.
Kristin Stewart is having none of your gendered bull shit
I love her.
AMEN. The perfect comeback combo of witty and inarguable.
