The changing face of rape


Today, in my office, I over heard two men talking about how rape has changed. One of them made the comment that rape doesn’t happen the same way that it did fifty years ago, and now we have to be suspicious of rape allegations. I held my tongue, of course, and went back to what … Continue reading

Do fraternities cause rape culture?

Do fraternities cause rape culture?


Odds are, if you’re a female who has ever been on a university campus, you’ve heard the warnings about the frat boys. Testosterone fueled, alpha males is the stereotype. Now, I’m not saying that I necessarily believe this. Do I know frat guys who seem harmless enough? Sure. Have I heard of frat boys drugging … Continue reading

Women are wedding crazy and baby obsessed, right? Or if they’re not, they must be lesbian. Or maybe they’re a cougar because they’re dating a … Continue reading

Rock The Slut Vote 2012

Rock The Slut Vote 2012


Feminists and women right’s activists have banned together to form Rock The Slut Vote.  Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” for testifying before Congress in support of contraceptives. Women everywhere are banning together to “diffuse” the disrespectful term. The founder of the movement wants to change the meaning of the word, so that it can’t be used to bully … Continue reading

What are “Slut Walks”?


In Toronto last year, a police officer caused an outrage after he said that women should “avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized” during a speech to a public university. That statement didn’t sit right with many women, who felt that the way they dress doesn’t make them any less of a victim … Continue reading
