Females [Even Young Ones] Do Sexually Assault…

01) Boys Often Don’t Recognize When They’ve Been Sexually Assaulted

“I’ve spent the last seven years interviewing high-school and college students about sex and emotional intimacy — the last year-and-a-half talking exclusively to boys. Of course, we discussed sexual violation. I’d assumed, at least for heterosexual boys, that we’d talk about what they thought it meant to get consent from a girl, how they’d define assault. What surprised me was how often the boys brought up their own experience of unwanted sex: encounters in which girls did not respect “no” or, as with Dylan, took advantage of them when they were drunk.

I want to be clear: Girls bear the brunt — both physically and psychologically — of sexual harassment, assault, and rape, but they’re not its exclusive targets. Middle- and high-school-aged boys report being the victims of dating violence, including physical abuse, at rates similar to girls. In a 2015 study, 43 percent of high-school and college boys said they’d been the victim of some form of sexual coercion — verbal, physical, substance-related — and 95 percent said the aggressors were girls. And large-scale surveys of college students — including the 21,000 who participated in the Online College Social Life Survey and the 9,616 involved in Columbia University’s Sexual Health Initiative to Foster Transformation — have found that roughly one in eight men have experienced something that meets the criteria for sexual assault; in over 80 percent of those cases, one study found, the perpetrators were female.

Putting aside the possible loose definitions of “assault” that can come into play here…

…I’ve never understood why males were seen as the primary sexual aggressors…

…In my experience, females have been every bit as aggressive…if not more so.

Some of them really love having sex…and decide that you are going to be with them, well before it’s even been spoken of.

01) Fundamentalists Say Stephen Hawking Isn’t An Atheist Anymore


“With the death of the brilliant theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, you knew there would be religious people eager to use the tragedy to promote their own beliefs. What’s surprising is that it’s not just random trolls doing it…

01) Elizabeth Warren: I’m Not Running For President


“Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she isn’t running for president in 2020.
“I am not running for president in 2020,” Warren told CNN’s Jim Acosta on Saturday.
Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat and staunch critic of President Donald Trump, made the statement in an interview for CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Acosta also asked if she gets upset when President Donald Trump refers to her as “Pocahontas.”

“It’s about my family’s story. Because my family’s story is deeply a part of me and a part of my brothers,” Warren said. “It’s what we learned from our parents. It’s what we learned from our grandparents. It’s what we learned from our aunts and uncles.
