Wanetta Gibson. Wanetta Gibson. That’s the woman who falsely accused Brian Banks of rape in 2002. Even though there was no physical evidence to corroborate Wanetta Gibson’s testimony and her story that he had dragged her, protesting, past five class rooms full of students without anyone noticing was far from plausible, Brian Banks was threatened with being tried as an adult and pressured to take a plea deal.
His plea deal got him 6 years in jail, 5 years probation and a life sentence on the sex offender registry.
All based solely on a woman’s testimony. Despite the lack of physical evidence, despite the implausibility, despite the inconsistencies of the tall tale, Brian Banks was not exonerated until he’d served his full sentence and recorded his rapist fessing up to her crime.
Did we say rapist? Why yes we did. Because we do have a rape culture, one in which women can socially rape men with impunity.
Join us on Honey Badger Radio as we discuss the Brian Banks case and other cases of false allegation.
Or as we prefer to call it, social rape.

Feminist Mary Koss says that we live in a rape culture in which we just don’t take the rape of women seriously enough. Mary Koss also says men who are raped by women aren’t really rape raped. Maybe sorta raped, well, not sorta raped, but maybe forced into sex you know?
Actually forced sex is too strong for Mary Koss. Women give men unwanted sex. Like your mom giving you an ugly sweater she knitted for christmas. You know, one that’s blocky-reindeer themed? And you slip it on anyway because, well… your mom gave you a sweater.
When a woman rapes a man at knifepoint, she’s also is just giving him unwanted sex. We shouldn’t go labelling it something it isn’t, like rape. After all it’s just an unwanted gift and it’s the thought that counts right?
All you raped men out there? Don’t forget to wear your ugly sweater like a champ!
And Mary Koss insists it’s really women who aren’t taken seriously when they’re raped.

Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori described a phenomena called “the uncanny valley”. As a robot approaches human in appearance and behaviour, it becomes more relatable and lovable. But at some point as it gets closer and closer to looking and acting human, it starts to become… well, eerie and disturbing. Almost right but still slightly wrong.
It becomes creepy. Even a creep.
This all begs the question, what is the standard of “human” that we’re judging so-called creeps by? Who got to set this standard?
The answer is that women do. Women decide what is and is not creepy and by extension what is and is not human.
But if women have taken it upon themselves to be the arbiters of what is and isn’t human, isn’t that itself… sorta creepy?
Join Karen Straughan(Girl Writes What), Alison Tieman(Typhonblue) and Della Burton(Oneiorosgrip) for this week’s topic of HBR, “How to be a Creep.”

For anyone who doesn’t know about this particular situation, 15 year old Christian Adamek streaked a football game. In response he was arrested and the Principal of his school, Michael Campbell said:
“There’s the legal complications, public lewdness and court consequences outside of school with the legal system as well as school consequences that the school system has set up.”
One of those legal consequences for Christian could have been being placed on the sex offender registry.
From the counter-feminist, Fidelbogen’s website:
We have initiated an e-mailing action to put social pressure on principal Michael Campbell of Sparkman High School in Harvest, Alabama. We feel that Campbell needs to be evaluated by a jury of his peers – i.e. the human race worldwide. Please go to the following blog page, which I have set up expressly for this project:http://justice4chrisa.blogspot.com/
On that page, you will find a description of the proposed action, and how to get involved if you choose to do so. Also, if you are not yet acquainted with this episode (involving principal Campbell and the late Adam Adamek), you will find a basic introduction and links to further information.
Please share this with anybody and everybody, and encourage all alike to participate.

“Are the Vagina’s in the house!” Eve Elsner screams to a cheering audience of feminists.
Yep. All us women? We’re just vaginas.
And that’s all that we are.
You know who else reduces women down to their genitals?
Specifically pimps reduce women down to what the pimp can extract in terms of benefit from their vaginas.
Sorta like feminists.
Except for feminists it’s not the vagina’s use that’s of interest, but it’s abuse. And whatever can be twisted into abuse of vaginas.
Make no mistake, like the pimp, all they care about is your vagina. If you didn’t have a vagina, they wouldn’t really care what happened to you.
You’re a whore in their stable, pimped out for their benefit. And if you refuse to be feminsim’s whore, watch out for their pimp hand!
The instant you say no, you’ll see just how deep sisterhood goes.
Join Alison Tieman(typhonblue), Karen Straughan(girlwriteswhat) and Della Burton as we discuss “Feminism’s Pimp Hand.”
