Devastating and enlightening Twitter feed

If you have a twitter account please go to #ididnotreport. There is also a sister hashtag #ididreport that kind of explains why there are so many stories on #ididnotreport. I have to say there is a strong TRIGGER WARNING for sexual assault, harassment, abuse and domestic violence. These are women giving reasons why they did not report their assaults. It can be overwhelming and devastating. I, myself, have given over 25 #ididnotreports. It's both cathartic and depressing for me how easily it flows from me. Read below the fold...

It’s All Relative or Gobsmackingly Mendacious: If Gaddafi Hitler-esque, Obama et al. Assume the Higher (Low) Moral Ground?

(556 Obama-dumping days until 2012 election-Hugh's Obama's Scandals List)

Wow, I thought the biggest hit to social humanists was when the “two Americas” populists of John Edwards’ campaign had their call to a moral high ground silenced when their passionate and articulate for political ethics leader was found guilty of cheating on his cancer-stricken and dying wife.

That sucker punch to human and social rights advocates seems like nothing upon reading the breathtaking headlines about Gaddafi’s alleged capacity for evil -- mandating mass rape and supplying Viagara to his fighters. A veritable HITLER ... IF the story is true. Read below the fold...

A rape survivor song

Thread: 

You could not keep your pretty hands off me
No i won’t sit nice and be quiet

You could not keep your pretty hands off me
Well i thought you were the one
But i was wrong, i was wrong

You could not keep your pretty hands off me
You shattered my image of love
While i was naked in the tub

You shattered my image of love
So when i bit, it was for blood Read below the fold...

Melissa McEwan provides an important overview. It isn't just our political system that's broken, although it would be naive to believe that our political and economic systems aren't affected by our culture. Read below the fold...

The Violence we Live with

On the same day that a man who repeatedly raped and impregnated his two daughters was given 25 life terms and the man who fled to India and married a second wife to hide from prosecution for rape and murder was sentenced, word is out about the new forced marriages law in the UK. The one they didn't think was necesssary. Read below the fold...

Rape, Baby, Rape

I know other people have written on the Interior Department scandal, but so far I have yet to see anyone, anywhere, use the one word which is correct. Gregory W. Smith didn't just engage in "sex" with a subordinate, he's accused of behavior by one that is rape. Read below the fold...

War is a Moral Force that Gives us *meaning*

Systematic rapes to destroy women in the Congo.

“We don’t know why these rapes are happening, but one thing is clear,” said Dr. Mukwege, who works in South Kivu Province, the epicenter of Congo’s rape epidemic. “They are done to destroy women.”

No Bid Rapists On Parade

JC Christian wrote a letter to a Mr. John Petroski about Petroski's paean to rape.

Upon reading Petroski's slippery words I couldn't help but feel he was talking to our President about Iraq. Guess I'm funny that way. Regardless, some lyrics ensued...
