Well, what is new regarding women and rape? Here are a few things that you might be surprised to learn. In nine states a rapist has the ability to share custody of the child that was produced from a rape. Yep, that’s right. If you’re a rapist, gone to jail for raping a woman, you still get to share custody with the product of that rape. And, the woman who you raped has to suck it up and have continued contact with you. Yay for you!
Bill Cosby, who drugged and raped plenty of women, has avoided jail time due to a mistrial, and is now going around the country with the express purpose of teaching other men how to avoid going to jail after they’ve raped women. I guess you should teach what you know, right?
Betsy DeVos has rescinded Title IX campus sexual assault guidance, of the legal requirement to report a sexual assault, because maybe, maybe there might be a (one) case of a female student lying about rape, and what would that do to the male student? Of course, 19% of female college students report being raped, but hey, who cares about that?
And, just to end on a “happy” note, the White House website page entitled “Rape and Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call to Action” has been taken down. Don’t be too alarmed though, the pages regarding Climate Change and Animal Welfare have also been taken down. So, victims of sexual assault are in good company. Fake News, nothing to see here!
