We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

[TW] Man who drugged and raped his wife for years because she was “snippy” gets no prison time


*Trigger warning*

Well, this is fucking awful.

Over the course of three years, an Indiana man named David Wise regularly drugged his wife, raped her, and filmed the assaults on his phone. When confronted, he admitted to her in writing that “I was taking advantage of you in your sleep and you kept coming to me and telling me it was NOT ok.” He was convicted of six felony charges, but won’t spent a single day in prison because the county judge suspended 12 years of his 20-year sentence and decided that eight years of home confinement was plenty. 

To quote Wise’s ex-wife Mandy Boardman: unfathomable. In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, she spoke out against the sentence:

“To have my rapist, my attacker, convicted on all six counts, only to be let go – only for him to walk out that door the same time I could — was just unfathomable. I never thought that he would be at home, being able to have the same rights and privileges as I do.

Somebody who premeditates what he’s doing to me, over and over again, for three-plus years, in my own home, in my own bed, by somebody I trusted fully, 100%, deserves to spend a great deal of their life in prison to pay for it. What he did was wrong, and it was proven that it was wrong, and there was no consequence.”

Boardman also called out the judge, Kurt Eisgruber, for urging her to forgive her rapist-piece-of-shit-husband.

“While the judge was giving his opinion on the sentence, he first turned to me and told me I needed to forgive my attacker, which is unfathomable. He told me I needed to forgive my attacker and I needed to let my attacker walk. It was a punch to the gut from the justice system — or from one judge.”

I hope you get raped.




Dude is a bitch and needs to get dealt with

It’s shit like this that makes me want to write off certain groupings of humanity without looking back.
