  1. From the DM?!! From the actual report itself: Pakistani-heritage Women and Girls 11.14 One of the local Pakistani women's groups described how Pakistani-heritage girls were targeted by taxi drivers and on occasion by older men lying in wait outside school gates at dinner times and after school. They also cited cases in Rotherham where Pakistani landlords had befriended Pakistani women and girls on their own for purposes of sex, then passed on their name to other men who had then contacted them for sex. The women and girls feared reporting such incidents to the Police because it would affect their future marriage prospects. 11.15 The UK Muslim Women's Network produced a report on CSE [linked to in above post] in September 2013 which drew on 35 case studies of women from across the UK who were victims, the majority of whom were Muslim. It highlighted that Asian girls were being sexually exploited where authorities were failing to identify or support them. They were most vulnerable to men from their own communities who manipulated cultural norms to prevent them from reporting their abuse. It described how this abuse was being carried out. 'Offending behaviour mostly involved men operating in groups . . . The victim was being passed around and prostituted amongst many other men. Our research also showed that complex grooming ‘hierarchies’ were at play. The physical abuse included oral, anal and vaginal rape; role play; insertion of objects into the vagina; severe beatings; burning with cigarettes; tying down; enacting rape that included ripping clothes off and sexual activity over the webcam.' This description mirrors the abuse committed by Pakistani-heritage perpetrators on white girls in Rotherham. 11.16 The Deputy Children's Commissioner’s report reached a similar conclusion to the Muslim Women's Network research, stating 'one of these myths was that only white girls are victims of sexual exploitation by Asian or Muslim males, as if these men only abuse outside of their own community, driven by hatred and contempt for white females. This belief flies in the face of evidence that shows that those who violate children are most likely to target those who are closest to them and most easily accessible.' The Home Affairs Select Committee quoted witnesses saying that cases of Asian men grooming Asian girls did not come to light because victims 'are often alienated and ostracised by their own families and by the whole community, if they go public with allegations of abuse.' ---------- Post added 01-09-2014 at 16:36 ---------- The operative word here being 'yet'. Again, people refuse to believe this, but there is organised ritual abuse by powerful white men who rape, murder, sacrifice, abuse, torture, traffic and make child abuse material and so called 'snuff' movies. Many people are trying to expose this, whether it will ever come out is anyone's guess.
  2. Othering child rapists, as some are wont to do, just serves to let those falling outside the group they are othering and seeking to demonise, rape and abuse children with impunity. All institutions/groups have been known to close ranks when there are rapists and abusers amongst them. It is utterly inexcusable and reprehensible that the agencies who should have protected these children put their own interests first, disbelieved the girls in question and in some cases, treated them like criminals rather than their abusers.
  3. White men are grooming, raping and trafficking boys and girls all over the country, of all races. Except people refuse to believe it, just like people refused to believe that girls were being raped, abused and trafficked in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and so on. As I have said, anyone on here who refuses to believe what activists, feminists and front line service workers have been saying for years, is part of the problem. Julie Bindel wrote about this 10 years ago, she was accused of being an extreme manhating loon. http://t.co/JfvOMCsiGp And from the Sunday Times 2005, on Julie's blog as the ST is behind the paywall: http://www.juliebindel.org/?p=76 Perhaps people will listen to us in future? I won't hold my breath.
  4. This is an appalling case and it is important not to get too focussed on the ethnicity of the perpetrators. Whilst it may have been a factor in the relevant agencies' response or rather lack thereof, in the interest of 'political expediency', which also applies to the past/current Westminster et al child abuse cover-ups, what I can state unequivocally is that sexual violence against girls and child sexual abuse is pandemic and crosses all cultures and all classes. The police and other agencies refused to believe these girls because of structural and instiutional misogyny and classism, they were regarded and treated with contempt as 'slags'. This is ultimate root of the problem here and there have been similar if not identical responses across the country whether the perpetrator is of Pakistani descent, white English, a priest, a teacher, a politician, a celebrity etc. This is what has to change - the culture if disbelief and the default position that girls and women are liars and frequently lie about rape and sexual abuse and/or that some victims are more deserving that others and if you happen to live in the 'wrong' part of town or talk in a strong regional accent then you're somehow not a deserving victim. If anyone on this thread has ever called a girl and/or woman a 'slag', accused her of lying or 'asking for it' then you are part of the problem. Shaun Wright should definitely stand down and it's an absolute disgrace that he hasn't. ---------- Post added 01-09-2014 at 14:18 ---------- Here are some good pieces about this case: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/aug/27/poor-children-seen-as-worthless-rotherham-abuse-scandal http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/aug/27/race-rotherham-abuse-scandal-pakistani-community?CMP=twt_gu ---------- Post added 01-09-2014 at 15:13 ---------- Girls from these communities are being sexually abused, raped and exploited but it is even more hidden, the reason being that the social stigma attached to them is even greater. Families have had to leave their communities where they have disclosed, the girls have been deemed 'umarriageable' and so on which is why we hear so little about the sexual abuse/rape and exploitation of BME girls. It is happening and it was pinpointed in the report. There was also another very detailed report published last year on the extent of this. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/aug/29/-sp-untold-story-culture-of-shame-ruzwana-bashir http://www.mwnuk.co.uk//go_files/resources/UnheardVoices.pdf
  5. I agree with this. He should not be lauded, allowed back into a club and feted on a high salary and held up as some kind of role model, as many footballers are. Many young people look up to footballers and his return to the club where he was before his conviction sends out a very damaging message. Furthermore, SUFC has remained silent and Evans continues to protest his innocence and is totally unrepentant. There are already some appalling rape apologist and misogynistic chants erupting on Twitter which no doubt the fans will adopt if he plays for SUFC again.
  6. Am not sure about the dressing attractively for attention/admiration comment there! Rape Crisis estimates the figure of stranger rapes to be around 10% so known perpetrators at around 90%. Jurors should have mandatory briefings on all in that link prior to the trial starting (watch this space . . .)
  7. Neither. It is the estimated number of rapes per year. ---------- Post added 13-08-2014 at 13:03 ---------- A Voice for Men is a hate group. ---------- Post added 13-08-2014 at 15:13 ---------- Is this some poor attempt at satire? ---------- Post added 13-08-2014 at 15:18 ---------- There is no grey area with consent. If a woman states that she does not want sex, does not enthusiatically give consent either verbally or by demonstrating physically, freezes and is unresponsive, is unconcious or intoxicated then any man ignoring all of the above is a rapist.
  8. So much vile victim blaming on here and what would appear to be a huge misunderstanding about what constitutes consent. Firstly, the papers report a very skewed and distorted snapshot of the evidence heard in court. Secondly, regardless of venue, La Chambre is a club for consenting adults and not a rape club. Someone has cited rape stats, they are approximately 85,000 per year and 400,000 sexual assaults. Only around 90% of rapes are stranger perpetrated and only 15% of women report to the police. The most common response during rape and sexual assault is to freeze. This thread is full of myths, stereotypes and absolute nonsense, however, I would expect nothing less. Thankfully, the jury returned a guilty verdict.
  9. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/03/us-usa-florida-shooting-idUSBRE9620RL20130703 ---------- Post added 18-07-2013 at 13:59 ---------- See the link above. The forensics don't support Zimmerman's version of events.
  10. I think that it is something along these lines. Various stages of undead/returned. Lena's back looked as if it were starting to decompose in some way, as does Victor's arm. I think there is more to Lena than meets the eye that is beyond the twin telepathy trope. I love it although some of the scenes are difficult to watch, especially any involving the cannibal. I suspect that we can expect the unexpected as nothing is as it seems. Victor is clealry at the epicentre, he was the one responsible for causing the coach crash - why? Why return only now (again)? What is the purpose of his recent return?
  11. That's true, it's really difficult to use a Vbulletin forum format on a smartphone. It took me a long time to get into Twitter, however, I am now a total convert and much prefer it to forums. You can choose your audience and exchange with a much wider group of people tailored to your specific interests. If you get abuse from anyone, you just block them. There are some fantastic bloggers, far better than many of the mainstream media's journos and I do think that alernative media is where the future lies. Twitter is also the best best for rolling news stories. I love it and have made some brilliant and awesome contacts as a result, started writing for a campaign group and met up with some high profile tweeters who are active in my fields of interest.
  12. Quite. Here is a great blog about this appalling case.
  13. Eugh, vile man. Although Frankie Boyle's riposte was very funny.
  14. Rather your unique ability to oh so subtly defend child abusers and then totally deny any such thing whenever anyone calls you on it.
  15. It should be down the abused person as to whether they wish to go public about their situation. Removing more choices is disempowering for someone who is already extremely disempowered and feels scared and vulnerable. It can also escalate the violence and abuse. If this was sprung upon her and she had no warning, was not prepared, that is despicable. I have no idea whether Lawson or Saatchi were given the right to reply before the photos were run, which as far as I am aware, is journalistic practice. PS - I have worked with lots of different types of survivors of different types of abuse. Unless there is a child protection issue, a victim or survivor is never forced into a position like this. It is down to them to report to the police if they want, disclose to friends and family, leave etc. They are given as much support as is needed to empower them to make these kinds of decisions.
