Just started rape in criminal law and the stats at the beginning of the chapter are interesting: Only 32% of rapes are reported. The most common reason they were reported was to prevent further crimes by the same offender against the same victim. The most common reason they were not reported was that it was … [Read more…]
This is my first day in four months without some kind of behavior-changing drug in my system (not counting the experimental discontinuation several weeks ago that saw me scrambling back to the medicine cabinet and my little pill to head off nausea and deep bone and head aches). It’s not without ambivalence that I return … [Read more…]
I’ve been listening to this recently and it’s kept me going as law school ties me up in its basement, feeding me only bread and water, and negotiating a ransom exchange with my family husband. I keep getting the feeling that the majority of my family would like me to settle down and start having … [Read more…]
But also anti-woman! A true uniter. See here for his creepy-ass discussion of why divorce is worse than your spouse abusing you (hint: because if you divorce, then God gets to abuse you! And whose abuse would you rather?) Ugh. via.
For some reason, songs about madness are all the rage in my head lately, and this release from Who Killed Amanda Palmer? is no exception: And because I’m a nice guy (or because the Internet makes it so easy), here are the lyrics: My friend has problems with winter and autumn. They give him prescriptions … [Read more…]
Vulnerability., originally uploaded by mind on fire. Professionals who treated patients with mental illness were once called alienists. Although the word itself has become obsolete, as a society mental and emotional disorders are still treated as something strange, alien, other. We are healthy and normal, but they are sick and crazy. A few months ago, … [Read more…]
I’m sorry I’ve not been posting recently, law school has finally caught up with me and consumed my life. I had to cancel the event that makes the holidays bearable for me (a goose-filled gamer fest) because I simply hadn’t the time to prepare and plan it. One of the prospective attendants told me that, … [Read more…]
If passed, this law will have nothing to do with me: I am not a teenage girl, I am unlikely to get one pregnant, and I don’t have any children. When I was the age during which I might have been affected by a law like this, I did not live in California. But this … [Read more…]
So, we’ve got these posters up all over campus for an “event” tonight called “AFTERdark” and it’s pissing me off because I think this is a microcosm of the general bait-and-switch of religion. The campus event of the year AFTERdark the compelling drama of Joe White “a top 10 influencer of the century” -New Man … [Read more…]
An act of not-hate perpetrated against Muslim children by white men. via. and. UPDATE: others are picking up on this, but still no MSM
I’ve been saying for a while now that we won’t have an election come November. I’ve just had a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that something is going to happen and martial law will be declared. I hope I’m wrong. But I’m not the only one.
I’ve long been a fan of Sinfest, but it’s mostly been religious, rather than political in nature. Recently, since one of the characters is a pig, there was a whole Palin lip-stick-on-pig thing that I’m still not sure what I think about. But then there were these, which are interesting more because Sinfest is not … [Read more…]
