Letter to the Badgers on sexual assault against disabled males

By Peter Wright

Excerpt from the 3-part series, “A male-centered approach to disability.”

Disabled males are four times more likely than nondisabled men to be sexually assaulted or raped.[3] The researchers of that study found that more than 5 percent of disabled men reported experiencing sexual assault during the past year, about equal to sexual assaults against disabled women.[3]

Letter to the Badgers: Excerpt from a Swedish newspaper

Hello Badgers,

First of all, I want to thank you all for your fantastic work bringing to light issues that very few other people dare to talk about.
I thought I would share something ridiculous I found in a Swedish newspaper today. See the attached image and the translation below:
The top line says “Men’s* contribution to discussions about rape on social medias”
The first color of the pie chart says “Ideas about how to fight rape and sexual harassment”
The second color says “How short was the girl’s skirt?/Had she been drinking?/Did she clearly say No?”
The third color says “Remind people that actually not all men rape!!”
And then lastly, the asterisk says “*Not all men ;)”
This picture is where the comic section of the newspaper usually is, so people might claim it’s a joke, but it does very much seem like a “funny cause it’s true” kind of mentality.

Badger mail: A ling comment on Chad

Hello Badgers,

I just wanted to comment on episode ‘Rantzerker 64: Women of the World, Western Women Pity You.’

I’ve been to Chad, I spent a month there for my internship in Bible College back in ’08. I celebrated Christmas there so I can answer Bono’s question that they do know it’s Christmas time.…

Letter to the Badgers: Buzzfeed overreacts to lesbian characters dying in a TV show

https://youtu.be/nmSVj4q3QaE

(0:24) they show a picture of the 100 star who was killed in that TV show.

Here’s the thing. She left the show because of her role as a leading character in Fear The Walking Dead, a role that is probably higher paid, as the CW surely doesn’t have the same budget as AMC.…

Letter to the badgers: Thanks for everything

Dear Honeybadger Brigade,

Thank you for everything you’ve done. I’ve been trying to donate for the longest, but now that I’ve got some extra income, from tax returns and a bonus (which you bets believe Uncle Sam took his cut ¬_¬), I’ve decided to put a hand fill of shillings in the hat.

Letter to the badgers: Feminists don’t hate men?

What I think of this statement.

Feminists don’t hate men.
They just think they created the patriarchy to benefit themselves & to oppress women.
They just think they had all the power historically and used it to oppress women over the ages.…

Badger mail: We are all biased and we all have a faith or trust or belief

We are all biased and we all have a faith or trust or belief

Otherwise we would not take another step, because we would not have confidence that the ground would hold for another step forward.

There is an ongoing discussion of religion and faith in the MRM.…

Suffragette movie criticisms & inaccuraccies

I apologize about it seeming a bit disjointed I didn’t want to do a simple bullet point list but I didn’t feel like planning this out with nice segways or something either.

I assume many of you went to see the fairly (not so now) recent Suffragette movie portraying the “the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement” and to little surprise, it was exactly what we expected.
