N.C. law: Woman can’t back out of sex once underway

Aaliyah Palmer was at a party when a man pulled her into a bathroom for sex.

She was willing.

But, she told Fayetteville police, when the sex turned violent, she told the man to stop. He didn’t listen.

She thought what happened to her was rape, but she found out that under North Carolina law a woman is not allowed to back out of sex once it is underway.

“It’s really stupid,” Palmer, 19, said of the law. “If I tell you no and you kept going, that’s rape.”

In 1979, the North Carolina Supreme Court, in State v. Way, ruled that women cannot revoke consent after sexual intercourse begins.

Wow. I don’t even know where to go with this one. My brain immediately took on the ways this could go bad or go well.

OK, so my initial reaction to this is that it is completely insane. In this woman’s situation, if the sex became violent and she didn’t want to take part in that, she should have had the right to say no, this needs to stop. And when he refused, yes, I would call that rape.

My mind is in a uproar over this, however, because we all know damn well that some woman somewhere is going to claim she told the guy half way through that she wanted to stop and was then raped. Whether she actually told him to stop or not. I mean, how the hell do you prove that she did or did not tell him to stop half way through?!

BUT! Either party should be allowed to say stop at any time during the act and have that respected. It’s still your body, and sex takes an intense amount of trust to engage in.

Let me know what you think here, guys. What’s your take on this?

On This Father’s Day, Let’s Celebrate Our Dads

thOK, so first off, before I go into my rant, I want to wish a very happy Father’s Day to all the dads reading this. I hope you all have a wonderful day today.

Now, the rant.

I logged on this morning to Facebook and watched the Father’s Day progression. It started off with wishing everyone a happy Father’s Day. Then it became dead dads on parade, which it usually does. I didn’t add mine to the list. I changed my profile picture to my dad’s picture for the day, but everyone who gives a crap about me knows my dad died, so I won’t bring everyone else down. There is no big memorial to my dad.

Then it began. My pet peeve on Father’s Day.

“Happy Father’s Day to all the single mothers out there who have to act as dads, too!”

No. This is not your day. I’m sorry. I know you feel slighted by some man somewhere, but this is not your damn day. This day is for dads. If you don’t have a dad for whatever reason, or your husband/partner/boyfriend left you with a kid, you don’t get to hijack the day. I’m sorry for your situation. Really, I am. And I am not diminishing what you do for your children.

But we celebrated you on Mother’s Day. You don’t get both days because life is hard. I’m sorry. I didn’t hear anyone celebrating single dad’s on Mother’s Day. And it isn’t going to kill you to allow dads to have a day to be celebrated alone. There are a lot of good men out there who stuck around and raised their children. They deserve their day without you taking it over because you were slighted by a man who doesn’t deserve the day anyway.

So to all the single moms out there, we love you and we get it, but you had your day. Let the dads have their day without the posturing.

Happy Father’s Day, dads!

Breastfeeding is Apparently Anti-Feminist Now

I’m sorry, wait a minute.

Tucker is right… men can’t naturally produce milk for a child. So no, there isn’t another “natural” way to feed a child other than breast milk.

Is there a problem with women who can’t produce milk to use formula? No, of course not! You feed your kid however the heck you have to feed your kid!

Is there a problem with letting dad feed the kid from a bottle? NO! Of course not! Please, by all means, mix up some formula or – God forbid – use a breast pump and fill a bottle with breast milk. It’s a wonderful way for a father to bond with his child.

But to insist that breast feeding isn’t natural? I’m sorry… but how the heck did our ancient ancestors survive then? The cavemen weren’t going to the corner store for formula and warming it up in the microwave. The milk a woman naturally produces in order to sustain the life of her child is always more natural than feeding the baby a powdered mixture of fake sustenance you bought from the grocery store. And just because a man can’t produce that milk doesn’t mean mom can’t bottle it so he can feed the kid, too! And just because everyone has to be empowered in a group think kind of manner and all that great stuff doesn’t mean dad should be forced to be the sole feeder of the kid, either! Feeding is a bonding experience with your baby! You should both be taking the opportunity to feed the baby!

Breast feeding is natural! Period! I don’t care what you read somewhere or how empowered you are. If you are too empowered to feed your kid, don’t have one! And if dad is so much of a beta male that he’s crying in his romper because he can’t naturally feed the baby, why are you breeding with him anyway?!

You people are a walking first world problem!!!

HuffPo, Twitter mock Mike Pence for respecting his wife in his dealings with other women

Mocking what it doesn’t understand, HuffPo elaborates:

HermanCain.com

Believe it or not, two people of the opposite sex eating together doesn’t always end in a night of unbridled passion.

On Tuesday, a Washington Post profile about Karen Pence, wife to Vice President Mike Pence, surfaced an intriguing tidbit first revealed to The Hill in 2002. Pence will not eat alone with any woman who is not his wife, nor will he go to any events serving alcohol without his wife alongside him.

The couple’s strict marriage rules have sparked a lot of controversy and some downright mockery. But what really got Twitter riled up, was when conservative blogger Matt Walsh weighed in on Wednesday, asking if there’s ever an “appropriate reason” for a married person to go out for a meal alone with someone of the opposite sex.

I’ve been listening to the wild screeching of feminists since this became a headline for whatever unknown reason. I’ve read a lot of the articles, too. Mostly because I am trying to figure out what the big friggin’ deal is!

I think it’s beautiful. No, really, I do. I’m sorry, but everyone has a different marriage from everyone else. What the left saw as some kind of feminist assault, I saw as a man trying to remain faithful to a woman he made an honest commitment to by removing any possible temptation. It doesn’t mean he’s going to get wasted and jump the next woman he sees if his wife is not around. But it does mean he has enough respect for his wife to not cause her undo stress and worry. There’s no questions here. Everything is right there in the open for both of them.

Now, I can support this because I “lost” a friend this way. There was a young man I worked with for several years in two locations, and I was very close to him, enough so to call him a brother. We had zero sexual attraction to each other. But during the course of us working together, he married a young woman that he adored. When I left the last job we worked at together, I explained to him as I was leaving that I would not be contacting him because his wife was mildly jealous and I didn’t want to cause harm to their marriage. We haven’t spoken since. I think of him often and fondly. But I respect him and his wife enough to understand how she feels and to let him go from my life so I don’t damage their marriage.

So what I see happening between Mike Pence and his wife is respect. I know some people don’t grasp this sort of marriage, but I personally find it beautiful.

Free Bleeding and the Third Wave Feminist

Source: WTF DID I JUST READ ABOUT FREE BLEEDING OMG

The above link opens an opinion piece about an actual article about “free bleeding.” You can choose to read that if you so desire, but I won’t subject you to it myself.

For those wanting to know, basically, free bleeding is the act of not using feminine hygiene products during the menstrual cycle. Apparently, a woman’s period is taboo and free bleeding is supposed to help stop that. I want to discuss this, as well as third wave feminism.

On the topic of free bleeding:

  1. Do you pee and poop on yourself, too? Because it isn’t any different. You can argue that until the cows come home, but the bottom line is that period waste is just that… waste. It is a product the body produces for the specific purpose of cushioning a baby in the womb, and when there is no baby when the egg comes down, the lining is shed out of the body. It has become a waste product.
  2. I was not aware that periods were taboo. Yes, I get that they are not discussed as part of casual conversation, and aren’t reacted to the same as if you were talking about what you did this weekend. But we don’t openly discuss our bowel movements, either. Does that mean dropping a deuce is also taboo?
  3. Something stated in the article was about this bringing awareness to the fact that feminine hygiene products are not available all over the world. OK. How? If this is a serious concern to you, then do something about it. You could do something like a GoFundMe or open your own charity to supply third world countries with these products. If you do it right, some of these companies will even donate once in a while, and you may get a deep discount the rest of the time. You could do a lot of good. And it would be tangible. You might even be able to raise enough to get them something they are very concerned with like feminine health.
  4. How much disposable income do these women have, because I can bet it is more than me! Blood is really hard to get out of clothing. So if you are free bleeding, those clothes are basically history. Are you rich enough to replace your wardrobe once a month? If so, how do I get on board with that life?!

Look, as a woman, I can honestly say… women’s rights have come an incredibly long way. Do we have more work to do? Of course! There are still inequalities out there, many of which you don’t realize exist until you get there. And I am all for working on those issues. But free bleeding is not something I am going to get behind. I don’t see it as being an issue at all, let alone a major issue.

What causes all of this? I can use my mother as a case study. My mother isn’t a third wave feminist, but she’s an old school feminist. However, my mother thinks everything is sexist. Any time in my life I had issues at work, it was immediately because I’m a woman. I was being treated unfairly because I am a woman. And when I stopped and said something like, “but it happened to the men, too” or “no, I actually screwed up,” she’d look at me very confused.

But my mother had issues coming up in the world. She’s 67 years old, so I have it better than she does. But she experienced having to go to court because her parents wanted her out of school after eighth grade so she could work and contribute to the family, because, as they said, there was no point in educating a woman. And when the courts said they disagreed and she had to go to high school, her parents wouldn’t pay for uniforms, books, nothing. So she went to school during the day and worked at night.

As an adult, she married late for the time and spent her 20s being introduced to new people as a spinster. After she finally got married, she got pregnant but miscarried… only to be ridiculed and accused of having an abortion. She got pregnant again – with me – and when I was about two years old, her marriage went bad. Having no college education and working in extremely low paying jobs, she wasn’t able to get out. When she tried to get government benefits and help leaving an abusive marriage, she was turned away. So she was forced to stay in a marriage that had gone bad and was abusive. That lasted almost 39 years until my father passed away in April.

Guess what we found out in April?! Oh, goodie! Mom had zero credit!!!! Mom’s credit had been stellar when she married, and they were able to get a mortgage and all based on her credit. But when my dad died… nope! Apparently, anything credit wise during their marriage reflected on my dad’s credit, but not hers. So to help her out, I allowed her to trade my car in towards a new car. Now, I got the car. But mom gets the credit for the car payment because she needs to build her credit back up.

During my dad’s illness, their joint bank account was shut down by the state. Now, I would assume this gets done if the tables are turned, but I don’t know. All that money belonged to both of them. Everything was joint: bank accounts, car titles, the house. But when he got sick and the state stepped in, it was all considered his. She spent over a year terrified that the state was going to lock her out of her own home the way they had locked her out of her own bank account and retirement fund.

Where were the feminists? Free bleeding.

A few years ago, there was a female deputy sheriff that was fired from her job… because she cheated on her husband. He wasn’t a cop, and the other man wasn’t either. She wasn’t using work hours to cheat, either. But the local news pulled out this old law that was still on the books that said that a woman can legally be fired for being unfaithful to her husband. A man couldn’t. Where were the feminists?

Where are the feminists when women cut each other down? I posted a link to twitter just yesterday from Julie Golob where a woman attacked her for being pro-gun by calling her a “man lady.” When I worked at a gun shop, I had a woman tell me I wasn’t a woman because real women don’t carry guns. So let me get this straight, a strong woman who takes her personal safety in hand and learns to take care of herself isn’t a real woman? She’s a “man lady?” The feminists manifesto calls for women to be weak and defenseless?

Where were the feminists when I was working in an extremely male dominated field (armored cars) where the men treated me as though I wouldn’t have been hired if I couldn’t do the job, but the women treated me like I was a freak of nature and actually tried to prevent me from doing my job, because they assumed I couldn’t do it? When they literally told me I shouldn’t be doing “men’s work” and should find a more suitable job for a woman?

So no, I don’t have an issue with the idea of feminism. I do have an issue with third wave feminism that focuses on things that don’t matter and things that make them feel good. I support equality across the board. I support defending both men and women when something is wrong. I believe women are the biggest enemy to women. And I will not take part in third wave feminism to feel good. I’ll keep being me… the chick who can laugh at herself, makes her political choices whether they are in the box or out of it, who takes jobs in male dominated fields if the job appeals to me, etc.

And sorry, but I like underwear and jeans, so I won’t be free bleeding in this lifetime.
