Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’

I call bullshit:

She discloses in a new memoir how she was abducted and sexually assaulted by a motorcycle gang in Ohio in the early 1970s – but concludes it was “all my doing” because of the way she was dressed and the fact that she was under the influence of drugs.

Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’ – claims singer Chrissie Hynde – Telegraph

This seems awfully convenient. Just a little spice to sell some books?

I’ve followed The Pretenders since the late 70″s and I’ve never heard this story before.

The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy

This is an important follow on to the Codevilla piece below. Again, many of you have read this. For some it is just another spot on the internet where you can find it. Please pass it along.

Gonzalo Lira: The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy. A sample:

However, three months later, out of the blue, they got a letter from their bank, Wells Fargo: It said that, after further review, Brian and Ilsa had in fact not qualified for HAMP. Therefore, their mortgage would go back to the old rate. Not only that, they now owed the difference for the three months when they had paid the lowered mortgage—and to add insult to injury, they were assessed a “penalty for non-payment”.

Really go read the whole thing. And all of the addenda.

I’ve saved the posts here in a small effort to make certain this story stays alive.

I’ve seen this in a few places…

And thought I would share.

London Evening Standard

How do you keep score? Oh, and go take a look at the picture.

I’m very skeptical…

I think this piece in about being a cuckold is some sort of spoof. A quick google search on the author’s name (Michael Sonmore) reveals no other articles. Anywhere. Any other reference to the author’s name is just commentary on the original article. Now I didn’t spend a lot of time on this, but you’ll get more hits on my name than this particular author, and I have no writing credits anywhere.

I don’t think it likely that an author’s first and only online searchable post/article is in NY Mag.

I am somewhat baffled as to the purpose of this propaganda. Is it red meat for the right to criticize the left? Is it just a little more pushing of the envelope by someone on the left in order to make a future claim that this behavior is normal? If the author’s name is a pseudonym, why? Is it just to show his wife the comments shaming her behavior?

“Look honey, I’m not the one that disapproves of our relationship, it is all these others. And look again at the comments about the children finding out…”

The whole thing smells. No cuckold would publicly out himself in any other manner than the filing of a divorce suit.

Under Fire for Calling Him Bruce

The Volunteer Auxiliary Thought Police are after some guy named Drake Bell.

It is obvious that those that disagree will have to be sent to a re-education camp. Dissent will not be allowed.

You Are You

We, as a Nation are doomed.

I can’t believe what I just saw.

You know, I don’t really care that such a camp exists, but to have a photographer document the place seems likely to turn out to be a very mean thing for some of the boys.
