Somacandra: Its the progressives that actually do things the are proven to reduce abortion rates. Wake me up when "pro-lifers" have done anything comparable.

that info does no good, as contraception is akin to abortion in their eyes

Something tells me this group is about to get a whole lot bigger.

PsiChick: I seriously,  seriously farking love that group  so damn much. That is like the answer to every single time I've asked "why is no one fighting back?". And it is  beautiful.


Hah! I thought you all were talking about the band, "Rise Against." :-)

But that group of Indian female vigilantes to which you're actually referring is seriously hardcore.

From the article: "Operating in the badlands of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous and poverty-stricken state, Pal's group gained notoriety in early days for beating up men who abused their wives. If they heard a husband was being violent, they would show up at his door with sticks called laathis - the same wielded by local cops when patrolling their beat - and demand he change his ways."

About half of aborted children are female. Funny how people overlook that mass murder while claiming to be progressive towards women.

About half of all pregnacies are female. What's your point?

And how would you be able to verify the sex in most abortions anyway? Its my understanding that they are usually done early enough in the pregnancy that the genitals wouldn't even be formed yet.

msirois: They said on CNN the other night that there is a rape every 52 seconds or minute (can't remember now) in India. Either way. That's insane !!


No no no. You're supposed to put that as "They said on CNN the other night that a woman in India is raped every 52 seconds."

That way the rest of us could reply with comments about how awful her life is and how she ever manages to eat, sleep and go to the toilet in between rapes.

Just thought I'd post this again:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akku_Yadav


Bharat Kalicharan, alias Akku Yadav, was a 32-year-old alleged rapist and murderer in India who, on August 13, 2004, was lynched by a mob of around 200 women from Yadav was stabbed over seventy times, and chili powder and stones were thrown in his face. One of his alleged victims also hacked off his penis. This lynching occurred in Nagpur district court, on the marble floor of the courtroom. The women who killed him claimed that Yadav had been raping and abusing local women with impunity for over a decade, and that the local police had refused to help his victims or pursue charges as Yadav was allegedly bribing them.

/not saying I think we should go around lynching people
//just saying that when you leave people no other recourse, this kinda shiat tends to happen

The thing that really bothers me about this, beyond the actual assault, is that so many men were willing to rape her. Seriously. Let's say one guy..just one, gets a girl in a position where he has control of her, and he calls up 10 guys, and all ten say "sure, we aren't doing anything..we'll be right over". I'm not sure what kind of people are over there, or what the general social feelings to women are, but I can't imagine that ANY of my friends would participate in a rape, and they would more than likely call the police and give them the address. One guy, sure, there are many animalistic sexual predators out there, but seriously, is it THAT easy to find a whole group of guys willing to assault a woman? WTF kind of country are you people running over there?

Gyrfalcon: Vangor: Bucky Katt: At least the police took the report this time. Small consolation, though. Damn.

This and the immediate willingness of the woman to come forward were essential to the quick apprehension and bringing proper consequences to this type of horrific crime in the future.

This is probably the most sensible comment about a) why this kind of thing happens in India and b) what needs to change before it stops happening.

Rape, more than anything, is a crime that can only happen if the victim cannot or will not testify against her attacker. If she is unable to do so because her society or culture tends to disregard females, then rape can pretty much continue unchecked. India, until very very recently, has been such a country and culture. Only in the last few years have women been able to reliably bring sexual assault charges against men and reliably have police take reports and then take action against the rapists.

Giving women guns, in such a culture, would only result in women being charged with murder and probably convicted as well. Standing up for your rights is futile if you have no rights to stand up for.


The USA  (with all our guns and rights) is no better than India when it comes to prosecuting rapists.

It's not that hard to find accomplices. In a few places, male/female ratio is like 1000/940. Sex before marriage is frowned on generally and so is being gay. Most of Indians have to be married to have sex. And so, there is a percentage of population who are poor who never marry and they resort to this. Making tough laws isn't exactly an answer. The laws are strict enough, there are simply not many enforcers

I joke, but seriously: misogynistic culture -> gang rapes and shiat
For all these people who want to torture and kill these rapists, there is a whole culture that is supporting rape's foreplay, like 'eve-teasing', wife beating, and slut shaming. It is all capped off with victim blaming. Reject the idea that your women are objects and you will help to keep them from being treated as such.

A guns wouldn't have changed anything.
But had the guys been circumcised as infants, their desensitized dicks rubbing against their balloon pants wouldn't have made them horny enough to think about raping her.
But in the end, it's all her fault:
If she hadn't tipped the bus driver less than the standard 25%, he wouldn't have abducted her; instead he would have pointed out to her that still wearing the tight spandex from cycling to the bus stop was just asking to be raped, given that the bus was full of illegal immigrants on their way home from stealing a local guy's job. And we all know how those people are.

The slattern should be stoned.

Indeed, Indian women should know better than to get on a city bus after what happened last month. And I bet the harlot had the unmitigated gall to ask the driver for a transfer! Stoning's too good for her

Time for a little PSA for everyone... without further ado...

Ten rape prevention tips:

1. Don't put drugs in women's drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don't rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman's home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don't rape people.

I am sure her she is grateful her country feels so kindly towards her, as to deprive her of a deadly weapon with which she might easily harm someone, like those innocent young men who were just having some carefree youthful fun.

Seriously, dude? "This is Fark" only excuses so much in the way of trolling. But just in case you are so thick as to be sincere, if India was as awash in handguns as America is, odds are the minibus driver would have had one too.

I don't care what they do in India, it is their country to run as they see fit. I am worried it will happen in Amerika, sooner than you might expect.

Think about that when the gang bangers knock down your door in the middle of the night and shoot your children in the back, and say it was okay because they thought there might be some drugs, or maybe someone heard something about some drugs, or maybe they thought someone said someone to somebody about some drugs or something.

Make sure you thank them politely, some of those kids might have grown up to become junkies.
