Do Sexual Predators Ever Feel Remorse?

Brock Allen Turner, Covicted Sex Offender

Heck NO!! Just look at the new horror that Brock Turner is hurling at his victim!

Judge Aaron Persky
Judge Persky, the mysoginist magistrate who tried Turner’s rape case, for sexually violating an unconscious drunk woman, claimed he handed out a light sentence because he’d shown “remorse.” But now that Turner’s out of jail and having to deal with the terms of the sex offender registry, his remorse has flown out the window! Turner has filed an appeal.

Just days ago, the sentence of Oscar Pistorius, the South African double amputee who murdered his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, was doubled by the appeals judge on his case. Let’s hope that a new judge in the Turner case follows suit and demands that Turner be remanded for the stiff 14 year term that suits his crime!

Contamination – What an apt description for sexual assault!

Brock Turner’s victim hit on an exceptionally descriptive term to explain how rape made her feel. Even though she was unconscious during the entire episode, she expressed, in her stirring statement, that she felt “contaminated.” Continue reading Contamination – What an apt description for sexual assault!

Persky Does Damage Control!

California Judge Aaron Persky, the misogynist dinosaur who let rapist Brock Turner off with a short six month sentence, has volunteered to move from criminal to civil court.  Doing so will not assure that he will remain in civil court for the rest of his career. He could request to return at any time.

Bad judgement is bad judgment no matter where a case is tried. Brock Turner’s case, or a case of sexual assault against anyone else, could be tried as a civil matter. And civil trials are often settled because of judicial pressure or litigated without a jury. Can you hear his instructions to opposing counsel? “I expect you to settle this matter because how much do you think I’ll award your client for 20 minutes of action?”

Persky has no concept of violation. Civil victims  are as entitled to justice as cases that appear in criminal court. And Persky has demonstrated that he simply does not relate to the harm committed against victims. He should be stripped of his judicial role, not parked in a different court where he can hand out inappropriate damages!

Please sign the Change.org petition to remove Judge Persky from the bench.

What do “Mistresses” and Joe Paterno have in common?

Mistresses

I confess….. I was addicted to “Mad Men.” Recorded every episode.

Since I can’t get lost in the exploits of Donald Draper any longer, I’ve turned to “Mistresses” and “The Bachelor” for my “bad-relationship” fixes. Analyzing whether the creators stick to the realistic affects of oxytocin is a favorite pastime of mine. And Continue reading What do “Mistresses” and Joe Paterno have in common?

Only an Ass Thinks “Assent” and “Consent” Are the Same in Sex

#AssentVsConsent

And the folks we rely on to provide language to our laws seem to be full-fledged asses!

The American Law Institute (ALI) created Model Penal Code (MPC) back in 1962. It’s goal was to standardize penal code throughout the US. Many states have adopted parts of its language including their definition of “consent”  You can see whether their definition was applied when you read your state’s statutes. Each state “picks” and “chooses” what it wants rather than adopting MPC in full.   Continue reading Only an Ass Thinks “Assent” and “Consent” Are the Same in Sex
