    Misogynistic bullshit!

    I thought I would make a thread for all the misogynistic stories I see all the time, like the thread we have for the bad politicians, racist crap, and bad cops.

    https://nypost.com/2018/10/23/allege...private-parts/

    A Florida man accused of groping a woman aboard a Southwest Airlines flight over the weekend later defended his lewd actions to police, saying ?the President of the United States says it?s ok to grab women by their private parts,? according to court documents.

    Bull This person needs to face summary execution for what he did and have his organs harvested. We need a real Dexter Morgan or a Pedro Filho to go after him.

    Magistrate Richard Pithouse referred to judicial watchdog after suggesting alleged rape victim had 'buyer's remorse'

    By Danny Tran
    Posted about 3 hours ago

    Victoria's judicial watchdog will investigate a Melbourne magistrate over comments he made in court which suggested an alleged rape victim had suffered "buyer's remorse".

    Key points:

    Richard Pithouse reportedly said an alleged sex assault victim "put herself in that position"

    A petition to refer him to the Judicial Commission has received almost 8,000 signatures

    A spokesman for the Attorney-General said his comments were "not in line with community expectations"

    The Judicial Commission of Victoria, which probes complaints against magistrates and judges, has received a referral from Attorney-General Jill Hennessy to look into the matter.

    "It's clear these comments are not in line with community expectations, and have caused distress to sexual assault survivors," said a spokesman for Ms Hennessy.

    "That's why the Attorney-General is referring this matter to the Judicial Commission for further investigation."

    During an exchange in court last year, Magistrate Richard Pithouse reportedly told a woman who claims she was raped that she had "put herself in that position" and had suffered "buyer's remorse", according to the Herald Sun.

    "There's an old adage ? that you can't profit from your own malfeasance," the magistrate allegedly said.

    Pithouse petition gets momentum

    The comments have infuriated some sections of the community, and sparked a petition calling for Magistrate Pithouse to be referred to the Judicial Commission.

    The petition has received almost 8,000 signatures.

    The Judicial Commission is an independent body and usually investigates excessive delays, inappropriate courtroom conduct and health issues affecting magistrates or judges.

    It has the power to dismiss a complaint or refer it on.

    In a statement, the commission said it would carefully consider the referral by Ms Hennessy.

    "There is no set timeframe for when the investigation will reach its conclusion," it said.

    "While the investigation is ongoing, it is not appropriate for the Commission to make any further comment."

    Robert W. Patterson, a right-wing commentator turned acting associate commissioner at the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Office of Strategic and Digital Communications, once railed against married women, homosexuality, and condoms, according to a series of clips gathered by liberal watchdog Media Matters for America.

    In a 2011 since-removed Washington Examiner op-ed, Media Matters reports, Patterson wrote that the government “has facilitated the movement of mothers out of the home economy and into the market economy, undermining the family as an economic unit, marriage as a lifelong partnership, and the well-being of children.”
    Media Matters also cites a report from The Philadelphia Inquirer, which summarized a piece Patterson co-wrote for the conservative journal Family in America.

    The piece, the Inquirer notes, summarizes recent family-related studies—and covers one study which claims that condom use deprives women of the “remarkable” chemicals in semen.

    The study also claims that “semen-exposed women” performed better on cognitive tasks.

    I've never listened to this podcast, so I don't have an opinion on how good it is, but I saw people discussing his behaviour on FB and based on what I saw he seems like an immature, narcissistic asshole. He outed a sexual assault victim and published her name. That's enough for me to think he's the twat.

    A Florida man fatally shot his ?disrespectful? wife at point-blank range as she sat on a couch ? because she wouldn?t shut up, police said.

    Fernando Leopoldo De Baere, 73, then coolly walked to a neighbor?s home after the shooting at a Plantation home late Wednesday and confessed to killing 47-year-old Marisa Sherman, according to a police report obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    De Baere, whose legs and boxer shorts were spattered with blood, told responding officers that he and Sherman were arguing about her interactions with a former co-worker when he got upset about the disrespectful ?way that she was talking to him,? according to the report.

    De Baere said he told Sherman to stop, but the offending banter continued, prompting him to grab a .38-caliber revolver and shoot his wife in the face ?one or two times? from roughly 3 feet away.

    ?She still would not listen to him,? the report said.

    Sherman was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was inside the home at the time aside from De Baere, WPLG reports.

    De Baere put the gun used in the shooting back inside a closet before going to a neighbor?s house to admit what he had just done, police said. Sherman was found sitting upright on a living room couch with an apparent gunshot wound to the face, according to the station.

    Detectives found the suspected murder weapon in a master bedroom closet, where De Baere had told them it would be. Two spent casings were found inside the weapon, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

    De Baere remained held without bail Monday at Broward Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale, online records show. It?s unclear if he?s hired an attorney.

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - He is the leader of La Luz Del Mundo church but now, Joaquin Garcia is behind bars accused of human trafficking and much more.

    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced on Tuesday that mega-church leader Joaquin Garcia and others associated with him face charges of human trafficking, production of child pornography, forcible rape of a minor, among other felonies.

    Becerra says Garcia committed the crimes between 2015 and 2018 while leading La Luz Del Mundo, an international religious organization headquartered in Mexico with over one million followers reported worldwide.

    In the criminal complaint, it is alleged that Garc?a and his "co-defendants" allegedly coerced victims into performing sexual acts by telling them that if they went against any of his desires or wishes as "the Apostle," that they were going against God.

    A copy of the criminal complaint is available on the California Attorney General's website.

    The other individuals named in the complaint are Alondra Ocampo, Azalea Rangel Melendez, and Susana Medina Oaxaca, all of whom are affiliated with La Luz Del Mundo. In addition to Garc?a, Alondra Ocampo and Susana Medina Oaxaca were also arrested.

    An arrest warrant has also been issued for Azalea Rangel Melendez, who is currently at large.

    Anyone who believed they may have been a victim of sexual abuse or have information about incidents of sexual misconduct related to anyone who may be involved in this case is asked to call 323-765-2100 or you can file a complaint online at https://oag.ca.gov/LLDM.

    LOS ANGELES -- The leader and self-proclaimed apostle of La Luz del Mundo, a Mexico-based church with branches in the U.S. that claims over 1 million followers, has been charged with human trafficking and child rape, California officials announced Tuesday.

    Joaqu?n Garc?a and a follower of the church, 24-year-old Susana Medina Oaxaca, were arrested Monday after landing at Los Angeles International Airport, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra's office said.

    Around 1,000 worshippers gathered at the headquarters of La Luz del Mundo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, on Tuesday evening to pray for Garc?a as he was held in Los Angeles on $25 million bail.

    Garc?a, 50, faces 26 counts of felony charges that range from human trafficking and production of child pornography to rape of a minor. The charges detail a series of disturbing allegations involving three girls and one woman between 2015 and 2018 in Los Angeles County.

    The fundamentalist Christian church, whose name translates to The Light of the World, was founded in 1926 by Garc?a's grandfather. It has been the subject of child sex abuse allegations for years but authorities in Mexico have never filed criminal charges. It has more than 15,000 churches in 58 countries, according to its website. The church's followers must adhere to a strict moral code in exchange for the promise of eternal salvation.

    Garc?a - who was a minister in Los Angeles and other parts of Southern California before becoming the church's leader - coerced the victims into performing sex acts by telling them that refusing would be going against God, authorities said. He allegedly forced the victims, who were members of the church, to sexually touch themselves and each other. One of his co-defendants also allegedly took nude photographs of the victims and sent the pictures to Garc?a.

    Garc?a told one of the victims and others in 2017, after they had completed a "flirty" dance wearing "as little clothing as possible," that kings can have mistresses and an apostle of God cannot be judged for his actions, the complaint states.

    "Crimes like those alleged in this complaint have no place in our society. Period," Becerra said in a press release. "We must not turn a blind eye to sexual violence and trafficking in our state."

    The attorney general's investigation began in 2018, prompted in part by a tip to the state's Department of Justice through an online clergy abuse complaint form.

    David Correa, a spokesman from the church's headquarters, said in a phone call that they learned about the charges from the media.

    "We categorically deny those false accusations," Correa said. "We know him personally and he is an honorable and honest man."

    Church officials said Garc?a has always behaved lawfully and they rejected the attorney general's charges.

    The church's statement Tuesday said they hoped the accusations would not lead to discrimination and religious intolerance against its followers.

    A third follower, Alondra Ocampo, 36, was arrested in Los Angeles County and is being held ahead of her arraignment Wednesday in Los Angeles. A fourth defendant, Azalea Rangel Melendez, remains at large.

    It wasn't immediately clear whether the defendants had an attorney.

    In May, an opera concert at Palacio de Bellas Artes, the main cultural venue in Mexico, generated controversy because in some places it was presented as a tribute to Garc?a. Critics said a secular state such as Mexico shouldn't use a public place for that purpose.

    The work, "The Guardian of the Mirror," was broadcast on social networks and screened outside the Palace, with the church's followers in the audience.

    La Luz del Mundo denied that it was an homage and said the opinions expressed in social networks were not promoted by the institution.

    Airport police referred media inquiries to Customs and Border Patrol, which did not immediately have a comment.

    MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - An alleged serial rapist already charged in attacks in Minneapolis has been charged with additional assaults, officials announced Tuesday.

    Between November 2018 and March 2019, Kenyatta Buckles, 24, reportedly robbed, assaulted and raped or attempted to rape women, many of whom he arranged to meet online. He faces several charges including first-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault and robbery.

    In November 2018, Minneapolis police received a walk-in report from a woman who said someone tried to sexually assault her several days ago. The victim reported that she works as an escort and posted an ad online. A man replied to her ad and arranged to meet her outside his apartment building on 3rd Avenue South in Minneapolis.

    According to the charges, a man later identified as Buckles brought the woman to a bedroom in a vacant apartment, took out a knife, and reportedly told her, "shut the f*** up b**** or I'll kill you." The woman began to fight back and ran from the apartment building screaming. She was able to escape, and he began texting her threats.

    The victim later posted online about her encounter. She reportedly got responses from 12 different women who said they had similar experiences in the same area with a man who fit the description.

    Throughout the investigation, officers connected Buckles to several similar crimes including sexual assaults, kidnappings and robberies.

    Officers arrested Buckles in March 2019 in connection with other cases and recovered several cell phones. Police later learned of two instances in which Buckles used the victims' cell phones to record the assaults.

    In one of the assaults, Buckles left his hat in a victim's car. DNA testing from the hat matched his profile in the police database.

    Note this was originally from Election 2020-get your popcorn ready! over Kanye West Except now there is some reaction here that Kanye West Rant over Harriet Tubman is viewed as not only racist but Sexist too given Tubman's history fighting for freeing the slaves and Tubman being abused in the process for fighting for equality.

    When Toni Fulton and her sister jumped in the car Sunday for a roughly two-hour road trip through South Carolina to attend Kanye West?s first campaign event since the rapper declared he was running for president earlier this month, neither could predict what would await them at the venue in North Charleston.

    But the last thing the Fultons expected was to find themselves angrily marching out of the event after being there for only 20 minutes.

    The cause of their sudden exit? West declaring onstage that famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who has been called ?the Moses of her people,? ?never actually freed the slaves.?

    ?She just had the slaves go work for other white people,? West said. Loud groans and unintelligible murmuring immediately erupted from the large crowd of several hundred people who had gathered at the Exquis Event Center. ?Come on, man,? a voice shouted out.

    Meanwhile, the Fulton sisters, who are black, decided they had seen enough. In a now-viral video capturing West?s comment, Toni Fulton made her exasperation with the Grammy Award-winning artist clear in a single statement. ?Yo, we leavin? right now,? she could be heard saying in the background of the short clip as it abruptly cut off.

    ?We?re young, black women and there weren?t a lot of us in the room,? Fulton, 30, told The Washington Post. ?We know better than to be in a space that we?re not uplifted in. While he was saying a lot of crazy things that didn?t directly offend us, that was offensive and it wasn?t appropriate for us to be there anymore.?

    West, who is trying to get on the ballot in South Carolina, spoke for about an hour during Sunday?s freewheeling campaign rally, bouncing between a variety of subjects ranging from abortion and religion to international trade. But his claim about Tubman swiftly became the most-talked-about moment from the event. Video clips circulated widely online, prompting critics and historians to share facts about Tubman?s storied legacy and urge West, who faced intense backlash in 2018 for saying 400 years of African American enslavement sounded ?like a choice,? to educate himself.
    By early Monday, ?Kanye? and Tubman?s name were still top trending terms on Twitter as social media exploded with reactions to his remarks, which one prominent Tubman scholar decried as ?completely irrational? in an interview with The Washington Post.

    ?There?s something about that little, petite, black woman, who did so much, that seems to bother him,? said Kate Clifford Larson, author of the 2003 biography ?Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero.? Larson noted that West has referenced the abolitionist critically in past years.

    ?She put up with a lot of abuse her whole life,? Larson said of Tubman. ?She?s getting the attention and accolades that she deserves. Why tear her down now? It?s just ridiculous.?

    Representatives for West did not respond to requests for comment late Sunday.

    The renewed backlash over West?s interpretation of history comes as he is attempting to collect the 10,000 signatures needed by noon Monday to appear on the South Carolina ballot, the Associated Press reported. West, 43, announced July 4 on Twitter that he was mounting a long-shot bid for the presidency, even though the deadline to get his name on ballots in several states had already passed. Still, West recently managed to qualify for the general election ballot in Oklahoma ? and political experts have warned that it would be a mistake to ignore the hitmaker, citing the influence third-party candidates have had on past elections, The Post?s Helena Andrews-Dyer reported.
    ?People want to dismiss the irrational,? pollster Terrance Woodbury told Andrews-Dyer. ?It sounded irrational five years [ago] that Donald Trump would be president. It?s only crazy until someone pulls it off.?

    For Fulton, West?s fledgling presidential run bears marked similarities to President Trump?s 2016 campaign, and the Columbia, S.C., native told The Post on Sunday that she and her sister, both Democrats, felt the North Charleston rally ?just seemed like a moment that we shouldn?t miss.?

    ?She sent a text that said, ?Hey, do you want to see the circus??? Fulton said.

    It didn?t take Fulton long to determine that West?s rally wouldn?t be like any other standard campaign event. First, she said she noticed that the crowd was mostly young people and ?sneakerheads,? sporting their distinctive pricey footwear, while other attendees arrived wearing concert T-shirts.


    Perhaps, she thought, West would perform a few of his songs during his first official introduction as a presidential candidate. She anticipated that the event, albeit not a typical rally, would ?introduce the world to the professional, presidential side of Kanye West.?

    Instead, the rapper strode onstage a few minutes after 5 p.m. wearing a protective vest that had ?SECURITY? emblazoned across the front. ?2020? was shaved into his head.

    ?In this Black Lives Matter spirit, to have a militarized outfit was, I don?t know, read the room,? said Fulton, noting the protests over racism and police brutality that have consumed the nation for weeks. ?It was weird.?

    And things only proceeded to get weirder, according to live-streamed footage of the event.

    Speaking without a microphone, West brought members of the crowd onstage, appearing to use their thoughts on current events to drive the conversation. He addressed his past support of Trump and his days of wearing a Make America Great Again hat, acknowledging that it was a ?very, very hurtful moment? for fans. West went on to argue that ?Democrats ain?t did s--- for blacks? and disputed criticism that his candidacy would split black votes, calling the idea ?the most racist thing that?s ever been said out loud.?

    Then, he appeared to abruptly shift gears to Tubman. Ignoring the crowd?s audible reaction to his comments about Tubman?s efforts to free enslaved people, West segued into criticizing economic equality.

    ?National Basketball Association is not owned by any blacks. Universal Music is not owned by any blacks,? he said. ?Any celebrity that you see talking is not the real power because the real power ? you don?t see them.?

    But at that point, Fulton and her sister were already headed for the door.

    ?We just left,? she said. ?We didn?t want to be there any longer because it?s a joke. That?s what it felt like.?

    She described West?s comments as an attempt to ?totally take away everything that Harriet Tubman did? for African Americans, adding, ?I don?t even think I?ve heard white people say that.?

    On social media, the brief remark was met with similar criticism led by prominent black voices and historians.

    ?You, Mr. West are a jerk and not worthy of uttering Tubman?s name,? Larson, the Tubman scholar, tweeted. ?You have not freed anyone.?

    Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump wrote in a tweet addressed to West that ?a Black history textbook is in the mail.?

    ?Read it, then learn to respect Harriet Tubman?s legacy,? Crump added.

    In a statement to The Post, Erica Armstrong Dunbar, a Rutgers University professor who specializes in African American women?s history, echoed calls for West to become better educated.

    ?Kanye West is in desperate need of a crash course in American History. His comments were erroneous and serve as a pathetic attempt to stimulate public attention,? Dunbar said, calling Tubman a ?hero.?

    Regarded as ?the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad?s ?conductors,?? Tubman made more than a dozen trips to the South over the course of a decade, escorting hundreds of enslaved people to freedom, according to PBS. During the Civil War, Tubman worked as a nurse and a scout for the Union, and became the first woman to lead an armed and successful military attack at the time, Dunbar told The Post. Later in her life, Tubman was also an advocate for women?s suffrage.
    There is now an ongoing effort to get Tubman on the $20 bill, in place of former president Andrew Jackson, who was an enslaver.

    ?Tubman was one of the most important social justice activists in our nation?s history and West?s words will never erase this fact,? Dunbar said. ?He?s a distraction and I suggest we move along and pay him no mind.?

    But though Brenda E. Stevenson, a professor of history and African American studies at the University of California at Los Angeles, agreed that West?s comments were ?woefully uninformed,? she stressed that his influence should not be entirely discounted.

    ?He?s a celebrity and he has a great following of young people in particular,? Stevenson told The Post. ?Some may be as uninformed as he is and believe that what he says is true, so that?s what?s disturbing to me.


    ?This country has a real problem with knowing African American history,? she continued. ?So when you have someone who has a great following say something that really is not based in fact, then it really distorts the history even more.?

    Instead, she urged people to do their own research.

    ?Question what you read on social media. Question it deeply,? she said, ?All the information is available to us, literally at our fingertips. All you have to do is Google Harriet Tubman, you will see.?

    UNITED NATIONS -- A new report estimates that 29 million women and girls are victims of modern slavery, exploited by practices including forced labor, forced marriage, debt-bondage and domestic servitude.

    Grace Forrest, co-founder of the Walk Free anti-slavery organization, said Friday that means one in every 130 women and girls is living in modern slavery today, more than the population of Australia.

    "The reality is that there are more people living in slavery today than any other time in human history," she told a U.N. news conference.

    Walk Free defines modern slavery "as the systematic removal of a person's freedom, where one person is exploited by another for personal or financial gain," she said.

    Forrest said the global estimate of one in 130 women and girls living in modern slavery was made based on work by Walk Free, the International Labor Organization and the International Organization for Migration, both U.N. agencies..

    "What this report has shown is that gender stacks the odds against girls from conception throughout their lives," she said.

    According to the report, titled "Stacked Odds," women account for 99% of all victims of forced sexual exploitation, 84% of all victims of forced marriage, and 58% of all victims of forced labor.

    Forrest said the face of modern slavery "has radically changed."

    "We're seeing normalized exploitation in our economy in transnational supply chains and also in migration pathways," she said. "The world's most vulnerable people have been pushed even further into this practice of modern slavery because of COVID-19."

    She said the estimate of women and girls in modern slavery is conservative because it doesn't account for what's happened during the pandemic, which has seen "sharp increases of forced and child marriage and exploited work conditions around the world."

    Forrest said Walk Free and the U.N.'s Every Woman Every Child program are launching a global campaign to demand action to eliminate modern slavery.

    The campaign urges an end to child and forced marriage, which 136 countries have yet to criminalize.

    It urges the elimination of legalized systems of exploitation such as kefala, which legally binds a migrant worker's immigration status to an employer or sponsor for their contract period.

    The campaign also urges transparency and accountability for multinationals.

    "We know that women and girls are experiencing unprecedented levels of exploitation and forced labor in supply chains of the goods we buy and use every day - clothing, coffee, techncology," Forest said.
