What is the SPLC and why would they waste time researching virgins

You should check up on the work they did sueing the KKK and other hate groups. They are an awesome organization and are currently doing great work in court addressing horrific conditions in a lot of US prisons

Seeing a lot of speculation that RK will kill himself in jail and I hope it's just speculation because that motherfucksr needs to publicly be held accountable.

On the one hand I agree with the accountability but on the other hand his attorneys are going to be giant shitheads on cross examination of the victims. Whatever happens I just hope they get some closure because jesus christ the charges are horrible.

It's thankfully still just a fringe bit of awfulness, but the slow turn to try and line up Sandusky's abuse as a bunch of lies and recovered memories is stunning given how clear the case was. One of the times where reality just doesn't seem to matter to some people.

Reminder that one of his underage victims was bullied by staff and kids so much at his school he had to move.

Fat people can have their penis covered by their fat which makes it look like they have a vagina. My wife is an ED nurse and complains about having to find penises all the time in order to put catheters in

How is Harry Knowles still alive? How have none of his health problems killed him yet?

C'mon, God, if you exist, please do me this solid.

Yeah I read some reviews from like 2004 and it had a long part about how he got up and his bad knees locked and he fell and couldn't get back up because he was too fat

I think at some level movies have to be exploitive since at the end of the day the purpose of a movie is to have people watch it. I think this can be problematic in movies like Cuties in that I can see what the director wants but that still requires little kids to be exploited in a way to make her point.

The Courtney Stoddard stuff was horrific in hindsite and I think it was something that made me realize I wasn't actually as good a person as I thought I was. I always considered myself a "feminist" and I remember thinking how it was 100 percent grooming/child abuse but I was right there laughing at every joke on their expense. I forget what exactly made me stop but I literally had a moment where I was like holy gently caress the entire country is mocking an abused child and it really made me consider a lot of opinions I had.

He is apparently refusing all programming and refuses to admit to his crime which is part of the parole process in PA so unless he gets compassionate release he is gonna do the whole ten years.

The idea that this can be legal seems entirely absurd, and as I understand it, it's extremely rare for someone to succesfully plead for removal of conservatorship.

It's probably not helped by the fact that she probably has issues actually retaining a lawyer when she has no control over her money.

The IUD thing is insane and I legit consider that sexual assault. That a judge can order someone to put one in is just insane and Jesus our legal system is a cluster gently caress

It feels extremely tasteless, but I gotta say it somewhere: Today, we are all Chris Crocker.


I mean it kind of loops back to the Courtney Stodden discussion where holy poo poo it was just perfectly fine for pretty much all of society to get together and just mock some poor young woman who is going through something horrible.

In hindsite I genuinely feel like a huge piece of poo poo for going along with it and laughing along with all the comedians mocking her and all the photos of her shaving her head that kept getting posted.

Cosby's legacy was running saying that what black ppl really need to do is pull their pants up and be more respectable

I hated Cosby before all his sex crimes came out and always will

Yeah he willingly let himself become a mouthpiece for the right and seemed perfectly fine with allowing people to say "well I can't be racist since I agree with Cosby." Also one of his early "comedy" albums had a whole thing about buying Spanish fly so he could drug women at a party.

So does anybody know what this guy's deal is or if people listen to his opinions on anything? He seems pretty misogynist and homophobic. :shrug:

He started out as a MRA and pick up artist and is a total piece of poo poo. He is the guy that signal boosted the man with autism that broke down when a woman was yelling at him and turned it around to make it look like a white guy breaking down because a black woman called him out for racism.

He also just released a really awful movie about buck breaking and has some really hosed up ideas about interracial dating.

I actually used to do forensic interviews for child victims and was on the sidelines of some pretty big investigations for child porn and honestly never really saw the star trek thing. What usually got me is how normal the people were. Like the myth of the giant gross nerd into child porn isn't that common but the first few times I went to get computers with a team I was always surprised when the door would open and some business man or normal looking teacher is standing there with the color draining from their faces.

Everybody goes to these cast parties. Fallon was there. Tracy Morgan world have been there. Fred Armisen would have been there. Tina Fey would have been there. There's no way they didn't all know what was going on.

I am shocked that Tina "just stay home and eat cake while neo Nazis march in the streets" Fey would ignore a 15 year old getting groomed at a cast party.

Probably the best way to address this argument is that we've seen enough to make it clear that "it's not about sex, it's about power" is not all-encompassing.

I think about something like the Steubenville case, or Jameis Winston's rape case, where the accused smells rotten but it seems like they have zero conception of consent, bodily autonomy, etc. Or cases that get branded "gray rape" (not a term anyone should actually use sincerely), like the one from the restorative justice segment from VICE on HBO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhFyGz8wQaY#t=999s

Saying that the end goal of the accused in those types of cases was sex more than a power trip...I think that's pretty fair? Especially if we're talking about guys were raised to believe that they were entitled to sex with the women of their choosing.

So I debated making a post about that based on my own experiences (did forensic interviews for child abuse victims as well as some adult interrogations) but I worry about either making a really triggering post or not being able to actual make the point I want to make. So please use your judgement about unspoilering the rest of this post, I sincerely don't want to trigger or even just upset anyone

So the whole rape us about power thing is what I feel a vast oversimplification of what rape or sexual assault is and also ignores a lot of the reasonings behind a rape or assault. The bottom line is for pedophiles is while yes there is a power dynamic at play in grooming a victim, but really the abuser is doing this to get off. They are getting off on the assault itself, it's really not power for them. Same with rape, the rapist might be turned on by things like fear or causing pain or a victim struggling but and this is hard for a lot of people to understand or process lot of times the rapist just wants sex and rape was the easiest way to do that. And when it comes to guys like Kevin Spacey or the thousand other shitheads that have come to light, yes there is a power dynamic with how the assault plays out but again, the assault itself turns the abuser on and that's what gets them off

I hope I made my point with this and can try to expand or clarify anything. I will say I don't do anything like that for work anymore which is good cause I was legit becoming an alcoholic (woke up one morning and realized it took 3 Ambien and half a bottle of Scotch to pass out)
