Meet the Predators

Acquaintance rape isn’t simply a mistake about consent. The vast majority of rapes are being committed by a small group of men who do it again… and again… and again. The notion that these predators are somehow confused good guys does not square with the data.



5-50 times? That’s no “accident.”

These men are habitual line-steppers; they know what they’re doing. And they know how to do it without getting caught.

Here’s what we need to do.

  2. Navy Men: Lisak and Miller’s results were essentially duplicated in an even larger study (2,925 men): Reports of Rape Reperpetration by Newly Enlisted Male Navy Personnel, McWhorter, 2009 [PDF, 16 pages]

Additional information via Upworthy:

Oh, and just because it would be so wrong to leave a post this upsetting without some links to tools to help make things better, here is a link to the OK Cupid Predator Alert Tool, which is a browser extension for Chrome that adds a red flag to the profile of any person who has answered “yes” to one of the four questions asked in the study. Similar tools also exist for FetLife, Facebook, Lulu, and Bang With Friends. And don’t forget, there’s “no good excuse for not building sexual violence prevention tools into every social network on the Internet.” Learn more about how to support the Predator Alert Tools here.

Personally I think the OK Cupid Predator Alert is rad.

But Kim’s Dream Like Really Came True.
But You Like Really Dated?! The Celebropedia of Hollywood Hookups BUY IT HERE: AMAZON | B&N | BAM | INDIEBOUND | iBOOKS

I have to think that somewhere in New York Ms Wintour is cutting herself for agreeing to put Kimye on the cover of Vogue. As she should, really, we are talking about a couple with one half being famous for whoring herself out for money, and the other being famous for his atrocious fashion designs. Oh yeah, and his hip-hop career.

Zoo volunteer with terminal cancer gets to say goodbye to the animals

picture source: Stichting Ambulance Wens Nederland
Article translation:

For one last time he wanted to visit the giraffes in Diergaarde Blijdorp: to say goodbye to the animals whose habitat he cleaned for years. The 54-year old Mario doesn’t have long to live, he has terminal cancer. For almost his entire life he was able to work at the zoo, despite his mental handicap. He isn’t able to say his goodbyes to the longnecks himself, therefore foundation Ambulance Wish reached out a helping hand.
On the moment when his hospital bed is wheeled into the habitat something beautiful happens. Not only does Mario want to say goodbye, but the animals sense that this is a final encounter. For one last time the terminally ill man gets a kiss from a giraffe. ‘A very special moment. You could see him totally light up,’ Kees Veldboer, founder and director of the foundation explains. ‘It’s very special to see that those animals recognise him, and sense that he isn’t doing well.’
After the goodbye with the giraffes, Mario got the oppertunity to say goodbye to his collegues. ‘It was very beautiful to be able to help this man fullfill his dying wish’ Veldboer concludes. Foundation Ambulance Wish and its 200 trained volunteers help immobile terminal patients get one last wonderful day.

Enough with Amanda. She is never going to be a thing.

Siouxsie & The Banshees - “Trophy”

I will fully admit to not being as attuned to Kaleidoscope in my Siouxsie-fixated teen years. But I have come around to it majorly as an adult. 

Basically every song on “Kaleidoscope” is genius.
