Are "Consensual" Sex Agreement Forms Required in India?

By dchaitanya, published on Mar 27, 2013

...stated that Delhi rape case is one among many, but not a unique one, a very tough Rape punishment law is enacted by Indian Parliament, keeping the sole incident of rape occurred at New Delhi, in view. No body would oppose for the tough punishment if anyone really committed the act of Rape/Sexual assault. But it is absolutely offensive if 'consensual sex' cases are twisted as 'rape' cases if relationships are boomaranged between the parties. The unique provision made in the recent rape-law in India is, the age for ‘consensual sex’ is fixed at 18 years. That means a girl and boy having... (more)

I’m as Mad as Hell

By Anastasia , published on Feb 17, 2013

Network is a movie made in 1976 that features Peter Finch as Howard Beale, a deranged TV news anchorman. In a sublime moment of madness Beale speaks to the nation at large, clearly striking a cord. This is the wonderful “I’m as Mad as Hell”, rant;

We know things are bad — worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is: 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials... (more)

The Delhi ASSAULT

By Rahul, published on Dec 27, 2012

Few days back my love called me, she was furious on the phone about something; she kept on cursing nonspecifically and was indefinitely shouting at me. I have never seen her like this before, so as I wondered why she was acting such, suddenly everything went silent on the other side and all that hate in her voice turned into puling. She was weeping hard now, I normally feel sad when I see someone crying and when that someone is very close to me, my eyes will wet unwittingly. With a concerned voice I asked her what happened and she told me about a mail that came to her inbox that same day which... (more)

Looking Beyond Physicality-International Women’s Day 2011

By Barkha Dhar, published on Mar 8, 2011

Women, for long have been a buffoon puppet of the media and entertainment. As a gratifying toy, women have mainly been recognized as an object of seeking pleasure by pulling their psychological and physiological strings. Women, more often have been recognized for their physicality and least for their inner beauty. The media portrayal of women today is nothing less than an active and passive eroticization that often leads to a desire for voluptuous figures and augmentations in young girls, an accession sadly not of their intellectual and emotional self, but more often of their physical self.... (more)

TSA Agents Should Register As Sex Offenders

By Libdrone, published on Nov 17, 2010

...to the "enhanced pat down" since none of the new "porno-scanners" which allow security screeners to view naked images of passengers have yet been installed in Dayton. Erin writes eloquently of her experience and makes clear that what she experienced in the Dayton airport was indeed sexual assault. Erin states that her lawyer has confirmed this.

How sad that in responding to an outrageous act by terrorist extremists, we Americans have largely abandoned our civil rights. Not only do we now treat airline passengers like criminals, Erin's experience shows that we now quite... (more)
