Cutting Off a Dude’s Dick? That’s Just… That’s Just Weak, Man…
By Max Derrat
Today, we have a story that is so horrific that it will penetrate your soul. Hopefully by warning you of this before hand, you won’t take it so hard.
This past week, an Indian man got shafted when his jilted lover sliced off his manhood with a sickle. After doing the deed, she ran down the street with it. Apparently, she hatched a plan to stop him sleeping with another woman because she was so pissed. She enticed him, lured him to her home for sex, blindfolded him, and thought that maybe her sickle would “come” in “handy”. His parents came upon him by accident and helped him to the hospital. He would have driven on his own if he weren’t a complete working stiff. Surprisingly, the man wanted to keep his mother in the dark and thus invented a phallusy. The man was arranged to be married to another woman, so he said that he cut it off himself in order to not insult the seminal caste system that his family “members” embraced.
I feel bad for this man, particularly because he has to hang around two nuts everyday of his life. But putting all jokes aside… we have to recognize that there is a vast difference between this man’s culture and our culture… and different expectations regarding masculinity may rub us the wrong way… but it could be fatal for others. Luckily the man is expected to survive, and the woman is being charged with attempted murder. Penis.

By Brian Martinez
A new Uber and Lyft ride-hailing service will be beta testing next week via an invite only model. It will be open to the public on March 1st. The service is called Safr and will be like Uber, but with one small difference. Let’s just go to the video for more info.
There is an ongoing legal discussion regarding whether or not this service violates anti discrimination at this time.
They Can’t Keep Getting Away With It!
by Mike J.
In the immediate wake of the tragic attack on a Quebecan mosque, the facts of the situation were scarce and the rumor mill was running full-throttle. Early on, the Twitter account Reuter News Break posted the names and pictures of the alleged assailants. The Twitter account claimed the suspects were noted white supremacists David M.J. Aurine and Mathieu Fournier. The internet wasted no time spreading this news as the truth and soon it found its way onto the front page of the left-leaning news outlet The Daily Beast, who cited the Reuter’s twitter account as their source. The only problem with this is that the twitter account, Reuter News Break, is a self-admitted parody account not linked with the actual Reuters news agency in any way. Unsurprisingly the information they provided was bogus. David M.J. Aurine is actually Davis M.J. Aurini; skull enthusiast, Bond villain impersonator, and self-described race realist. Likewise Mathieu Fournier is actually Matt Forney; click-bait blogger, part-time potato-kin, and professional pick-up artist. Once word of the ruse reached The Daily Beast’s editors, they pulled the fake names and issued an editor’s note apologizing. While the prank pulled by the parody Twitter account, which has since been suspended, appears to be callous in a time of tragedy, it drives home a very topical point about the sorry state of modern journalism.
Drunken girl gang jailed after posting sex attack of amateur footballer on Snapchat
By Hannah Wallen
On November 28, 2015, 26-year-old Brogan Gilliard, 22-year-old Paige Cunningham, and 20-year-old Shannon Jones met their 19-year-old victim, whose name has not been published, in a bar in Barrow in Furness, Cambria. According to The Telegraph, the three women (referred to as “girls” in the article) lured the victim back to Gillard’s home on Keith Street, where they plied him with vodka until he lost consciousness.
Once he was incapacitated, they shredded his clothes and filmed themselves sexually assaulting him while Brogan Gilliard ignored the crying of her three children upstairs. The women posted the evidence, which included video and 40 still shots, on social media, where it was seen by the victim’s girlfriend. The ordeal included sexual assault with a pair of scissors and ritual humiliation, after which the victim required hospital treatment. The women posed individually for “trophy shots” beside their nude victim, including a photo of Gilliard giving a “V” sign for victory in front of him.
Prosecutor Francis McEntee emphasized that the purpose of the assault was to demean and humiliate (the victim) for the perpetrators’ own pleasure. Describing Gilliard’s expression as “smirking,” Judge Graham Knowles castigated her for gloating. Gilliard’s own statement to police proves them right. She said, “I cut his hair and clothes because he’s a d–k.”
Two of the three women are mothers with previous convictions for violent crimes, and Gilliard has had her children removed from her home and two of them adopted for unrelated circumstances. The third, Shannon Jones, has no previous convictions. Her lawyer is quoted trying to excuse her behavior due to over-consumption of alcohol and drugs.
The claim seems not to have swayed the judge, who said the women had “entirely dehumanized” their victim, and that he sentenced as if they had been three men assaulting a female. He is quoted in the Telegraph, “I sentence three people for glorifying in the humiliation and degradation of a fellow human being.”
All three women pleaded guilty to sexual assault. Brogan Gilliard has been sentenced to 31 months (1 year, 7 months) and Paige Cunningham to 10 months. Shannon Jones will be sentenced at a later date. All three women also have been required to register as sex offenders and are subject to restraining orders.
Looks Like it IS About Ethics In Game Journalism
By Brian Martinez
Concluding an investigation that lasted over a year, the FBI has come forward to announce that nothing criminal occurred or was instigated by GamerGate.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, or have a life IRL, GamerGate was a consumer revolt against corrupt video game journalism which was at its height in 2014 and 2015. GG met with lots of resistance from journos, cultural critics, celebrities, e-celebs, Law and Order SVU, and even politicians looking to score virtue points and silence opposing voices.
The investigation focused on Feminist Frequency’s Anita Sarkeesian and… well let’s call her a game developer… Brianna Wu who used claims of death threats and online abuse as a means to go from literally who to possible congressional candidate. There was no mention of Gamergate catalyst Zoe Quinn, though she did claim to be a victim as well, even appearing at the UN with Anita Sarkeesian to call for action against online harassment… and apparently people saying “you’re a liar, you suck”.
The investigation looked into shooting threat against Sarkeesian at Utah State which yielded no credible threats or links to GamerGate. There was an underage individual who was warned to stop sending threatening emails, to which the individual agreed. The FBI did not press charges. They also investigated instances of swatting but were unable to find any actionable leads. In fact, in most cases the FBI determined those involved with threats were either unrelated to GamerGate or were looking to escalate the culture war taking place.
The FBI closed the case after coming to the conclusion there are no actionable leads or suspects to pursue.
Brianna Wu stated that assuming she wins the race for congress she will meet with the FBI for this appalling failure of justice.
Female Power and the Murder of Emmet Till
By Alison Tieman
In “Against our will” Susan Brownmiller wrote how Emmet Till, a black boy lynched in the south during Jim Crow, shared responsibility with his white male murderers in a system of sexual ownership of women.
Now we find out that Carolyn Brant, the woman who accused him of sexually harassing her, was lying.
She used the lie to defend her husband and brother from murder charges for abducting Till from his great-uncle’s home, beating him near to death, gouging out one of his eyes, shooting him in the head and then dumping his body in a River.
Prior to the murder of Emmet Till, Carolyn Brant chased the boy around her shop with a gun, she then apparently informed her brother and husband and they finished the job she started.
I wonder if Brownmiller will update her feminist classic with this new information about how deadly false accusations of sexual malfeasance can be to men? Or will she continue to perpetuate the same narrative that lead both to Emmet Till’s death and the acquittal of his murderers?
