Accused Rapists Find a Friend in Bernard-Henri Levy
By Jill F | Sourced from Feministe 

We have a longer post coming on the rape charges brought against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, but in the interim, allow me to direct your attention towards a fine piece of victim-blaming and my-friends-can-do-no-wrong-ing: Bernard-Henri Levy, also a defender of Roman Polanksi, explaining why Strauss-Kahn should not have the suffer the indignities of the American justice system.
He starts out, naturally, by saying that he “doesn’t know” what happened, but is happy to imply that the woman who accused Strauss-Kahn of assault is probably lying. Why? Because she’s a maid, and went in to a clean a room alone:...........................

is walker the definition of PURE evil?

i don't know for sure but i'm guessing the answer is YES

i don't understand and have never understood...how a gay/lesbian/trans/bi person or couple could threaten the rights of a STRAIGHT person? really. explain it to me? are YOUR rights going to be taken away if same-sex partners visit each other in the hospital? if  yes, THEN and ONLY THEN would you have a voice. if not, SHUT THE FUCK UP. and i do mean NOW

 Hospital visitation rights for same sex couples under threat in Wisconsin | The Raw Story
By Stephen C. Webster
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) this week asked a judge if the state may stop defending a law that gives citizens in same sex relationships the right to visit their partner if they're in a hospital.
Passed by Democrats in 2009, the state's domestic partnership registry was meant to give same sex couples more rights. While it succeeded in doing so, rights for domestic partners in Wisconsin do not rise to the level of special rights granted by marriage.
It allows anyone to register a domestic partner with the state, who can then visit them in the hospital, make key end-of-life decisions and inherit property in the event of one partner's death...................
 

you're welcome

because rape is NOT a joke

because we're NOT going to be victims any longer. because i really don't think they know what they did was beyond wrong.

[UPDATED with ICE Suspending Deportation:] Isaura Garcia, Battered Woman Facing Deportation, Embodies Problems with ICE Program


UPDATE, MAY 12, 3:30 P.M.: After her boyfriend violently threw Isaura Garcia out of her LA-area apartment on Feb. 6, she dialed 9-1-1.

And that's when her nightmare really began, according to the account presented at the American Civil Liberties Union's Southern California office this morning.

Although Garcia was the victim of "severe, ongoing domestic violence with a history of 9-1-1 calls and emergency-room visits," she was arrested by LAPD officers who believed her boyfriend's version of the events, according to immigration lawyers and other experts monitoring her case.

Being arrested caused Garcia to faint, so the cops took her to a local hospital, where a doctor found bruises on her body and had to tell police she was a victim of domestic violence. The LAPD went ahead and held her on a felony domestic violence charge, resulting in her being identified by immigration authorities at the time of her booking.  .....

New anti-abortion rights website targets Girl Scouts
By Sofia Resnick

A new anti-abortion rights website has emerged, its aim focused on the Girl Scouts of the United States of America.
Speak Now: Girl Scouts is the product of two Texas-based teen sisters, Tess and Sydney Volanski, who claim to have recently quit the Girl Scouts after eight years because they discovered the organization has a “pro-abortion mindset.”
The homepage of the all-pink website begins with the following introduction (emphasis in the original):
We refuse to remain silent while this organization’s unscrupulous principles mislead over 2 million girls in the United States alone. We created SpeakNowGirlScouts.com in order to spread the truth to others who have no idea what GSUSA’s [Girl Scouts of the United States of America's] true intentions are. This website is our way to speak now and we hope it encourages you to do the same!............

sic

from english language & usage



The usage of '[sic]' is well defined for quoting a passage that you believe has an error in it: nearest to the mistake you place '[sic]' within the quotes. For example, suppose I write a letter from I to you. This last sentence of mine is counter to most norms of English writing (it's wrong), so in quoting it someone would naturally want to write:
...suppose I write a letter from I [sic] to you.................
