Sexual Assault will not stop ’til we #CodifyConsent!

Our laws are failing us!

Provisions and definitions make up all of our penal codes.

  • Definitions explain the terms that are used.
  • Provisions tell us about illegal behavior, but they only make sense if their words are well-defined.

The problem…..

NO STATE OR TERRITORY DEFINES CONSENT IN OUR SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWS!

The end result is a set of provisions that are out of sync with what CONSENT actually is! And sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein say:

“It’s just – I’m confused- and men are confused about all these issues!”

Take the #CodifyConsent Challenge!

We need to elect lawmakers who can and will tackle sexual assault! Shortly, we’ll decide who will govern our states, territories and this nation. They’ll be creating new laws over the next few years. Continue reading Sexual Assault will not stop ’til we #CodifyConsent!

What an Unmasked Trump Teaches Us About Consent

By his refusal to wear a mask, Trump is flaunting morality. If wearing a mask were required by law, he’d have to comply. Instead he can flaunt moral reasoning and science to maintain his outward appearance because, let’s face it….  the only reason he’s not wearing a mask is because he doesn’t like how he’d look. To Trump, personal vanity trumps concern for his fellow man.

A true leader would understand the moral imperative behind his wearing that mask, not only to protect those around him, but to set an example for the world.

When you insist that your children wear a mask, and they say, “But the President doesn’t wear one, why should I?” there is only one answer you can give them; “Because he just doesn’t give a damn about who he harms. We do.”

Trump and Consent

Trump’s example reveals why we so desperately need to #CodifyConsent in our laws. There are people who walk among us that will only abide by decency and morality when laws establish accountability. They will skirt around penal codes that fail to cast a wide and incontrovertible net. They will rape, assault, and even murder if they are not reigned-in by established law.

Our sexual assault laws are fraught with legal loopholes that immoral people slip through. For background on a few, read the posts on Donald Ward, Kim McMorries, Roger Hardy, Justin Schneider and more.

The vast expanse of the legal loopholes in sexual assault laws can only be plugged up by codifying consent into law.

The Pandemic’s Interference

COVID-19 has paused the train that is moving the bill we’ve been working on in PA down the tracks. But we have wonderful legislators who have pledged to go forward as quickly as humanly possible.

Meanwhile- here’s a little song to hum while we wait – to the tune of:

“You’re so Vain”

by Carly Simon and revised by moi……

 

You walked up to the platform,

Like all those times you’d  done so before.

And you stumbled over all your printed text,

While you pointed out your ratings that soar.

 

You had one eye on the camera,

As you shift and avoid press with ease.

And half the world, when they listen, they get sucked-in

‘Til your bald spot’s revealed by the breeze.

 

You’re so vain,

You won’t wear a mask ‘cuz it’s not cool.

You’re so vain,

The safety of others, not for this fool.

This fool,

This fool!

 

Oh… Pandemics are not a “real big threat,”

North Korea is not our foe.

And we all should be dying in a painful death,

So the wealthy can keep all their dough.

 

But, how will they actually spend it, once you’ve destroyed our democracy,

We had our choices but they’ve all been dismantled,

All been dismantled, cuz,

 

You’re so vain,

You won’t wear a mask ‘cuz it’s not cool.

You’re so vain,

The safety of others, not for this fool.

This fool,

This fool!

 

Yes…

 

You’re so vain,

You won’t wear a mask ‘cuz it’s not cool.

You’re so vain,

The safety of others, not for this fool.

This fool,

This fool!

Feel free to record your version of this song on YouTube. And don’t forget to post it here!

Happy Sunday! (Due to sheltering in place, I  actually had to look at my phone to make sure I had the day right!)  I hope everyone reading this, and also those who don’t, are safe, healthy, and secure!

Manafort & Fraud- But still no Rape by Fraud in NYC

Paul Manafort- Convicted Felon

In addition to prior convictions, Paul Manafort will be tried for fraud in New York City. We see clearly that lying to take your money is a crime. But lying to induce sex is not? On what planet?

When an offender lies to secure mortgage money in NY City, all hell breaks loose. But if that same offender lies to get laid, defiling your body and causing you extreme depression, loss of self worth, and trust issues for the rest of your life, that’s no big deal?? Continue reading Manafort & Fraud- But still no Rape by Fraud in NYC

What is Rape Mentality and How Can We Stop It?

Until #MeToo, rape mentality was far more widespread than society recognized. The fact that so many celebrities, politicians, successful businessmen and more were recently exposed for abhorrent sexual acts, shows how well-hidden rape mentality has been. Even the President of the United States thinks that forcing his wife into sex is acceptable behavior – a recognition that Continue reading What is Rape Mentality and How Can We Stop It?

Defamation Could be Trump’s Undoing!

Summer Zervos

Summer Zervos’s defamation suit against Donald Trump could be his undoing. It could prove, once and for all, that he’s a sexual predator. Zervos claimed Trump groped her and thrust his genitals at her while she participated in episodes of “The Apprentice” back in 2007. Only recently; however, Trump called her a liar which, according to Zervos, damaged her reputation and the reputations of others who made similar claims.

While sexual harassment charges must adhere to statutory time limits, Zervos’s defamation charge is timely. Trump would need to prove that her statements were false….. difficult to do when Continue reading Defamation Could be Trump’s Undoing!

Bullying Tactics- How Trump Operates!

In the classic move of a Narcissist, Trump stomps his feet and threatens to take his ball home. If he can’t be the pitcher, no one will play! What’s best for the team has nothing to do with his self-centered demand. Continue reading Bullying Tactics- How Trump Operates!

What’s for lunch? Support a McDonald’s protester!

If the person who posted this tweet actually works for McDonalds, they’ll probably get fired. But let’s all express our support by buying a BigMac today and telling their staff how happy we are about their comment!

I’ve probably eaten two BigMacs in the past 10 years, but today, I’ll put my loathing for fast food aside to stand behind this statement, and I hope you will too!

Just In! Hillary Could Still Win!

hillary-and-donald

Yes- It’s a huge long shot- but electoral votes are not tied to the candidates. On December 19th, electors can vote their conscience. They’ll be fined, but not heavily. And Hillary, the winner of the popular vote, can still become President!

If you think this is nuts, ask yourself, “Would Al Gore have plunged the United States into a baseless war against Iraq?” Continue reading Just In! Hillary Could Still Win!

Fear, not anger, splits our country

america

Betrayal is a hard pill to swallow. It’s especially difficult when the value system you believed in is shattered. And when you know that half of this country does not support the tenants of decency and compassion you believe are humane, it shakes you at your core. You’re left wondering what to believe in.

What Trump’s Behavior Says About Pence!

 

If you haven’t seen the 2005 video that categorically reveals the underbelly of the beastly Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump, here it is….

But what does this say about the judgement of Mike Pence who’s riding on Trump’s coat tails?

How many times have we heard the Republican nominee for Vice President, Indiana Governor Mike Pence,  claim that Trump didn’t
say what we all heard him say? Do we really want a Vice President, and possibly a President, who tries to manipulate our reality?

Right in front of our eyes during the VP debate, Democratic nomineeeTim Kaine asked Pence how he could justify Trump’s ideology. Pence failed to provide a shred of defense for the positions of support he’d taken. At other times he excused Trumps’s behavior by telling us that Trump really doesn’t mean what he says. Excuse me?? Really????

Time after time, Trump has given us a clear glimpse into his mysoginist, immoral mindset. Yet Mike Pence blatantly told us to close our eyes to the obvious. He has an opportunity, today, to stand up and be a man by renouncing his running mate whose mindset shouldn’t exist in a locker room, let alone in the oval office!

Pence’s past demonstrates he can’t even support the Republican platform that Trump espouses to rally votes!

Trump’s claim that he’ll keep jobs from disappearing to Mexico are surely not backed by Pence’s track record. In his own state, he lost Carrier Corp and United Technologies Electronic Controls…. 2100 jobs. And guess where they went! You got it,,,, Mexico! The economy of Indiana was shown to be the slowest growing in the country. So much for his ability to bolster the US economy and keep jobs in our country!

Why does Trump’s campaign keep ticking like the  Energizer Bunny? 

energizer-bunnyTrump’s support base is comprised of people who are mysoginist and racist! Anyone who could possibly vote for this man after hearing how he objectifies women is grotesquely misogynist themselves. This election will show us just how much bigotry exists in this country! People who here-to-fore thought misogyny existed as a small minority of our population, and that our country is basically comprised of people who are morally intact, should heed the wake-up-call this election provides.

Regarding Pence’s level of morality…..

How does the Republican party think we can support someone who is so self-consumed with riding a grotesquely misogynist’s coattails into the Vice-Presidency, that he doesn’t have the balls (pardon me) to stand up to immorality? Even if Mike Pence withdraws his brown nosing face from Donald Trump’s hindquarters, and denounces him as the Republican candidate at this late date, it is blatantly obvious that he lacks the character and judgment we need anywhere near the White House! Any consideration the Republican party gives to replacing Donald Trump, should not consider putting Mike Pence in that role!

The Disaster of a Trump Presidency

So what’s wrong with electing Trump?
Trump2
I engaged in an interesting discussion on Salon this past Tuesday. Paul Campos wrote an insightful article. He said that Drumpf claimed (bragged) he’d negotiate with US creditors to accept less payment than what we’re obligated to pay. For Trump, that’s just business as usual.
9944400-Background-of-the-moneySome of the comments he received from Trump’s supporters showed absolute ignorance over how global debt actually works. Trump’s policy would be disastrous for the world’s economy. I wrote an explanation and got the following message from a reader:
