It's not okay: NC's rape culture perseveres

But he's such a nice young man:

McGill, a senior at Ahop Christian Leadership Academy in Chapel Hill, was initially charged with first-degree statutory rape and statutory sex offense with a child in connection with incidents alleged to have occurred in November with a 12-year-old girl.

Following his arrest, two more girls came forward to investigators to report similar incidents involving McGill. According to the latest arrest warrants, the alleged crimes occurred in September 2019 and last November.

At the risk of turning this conversation into a debate about private school vouchers, just let me say this: When you have a K-12 school, a 12 year-old girl coming into contact with a high school (quarterback) is a daily occurrence. The fact it's a "Christian" school does not make it safer for young girls to be in that situation, and this nonsense should not even be uttered:

Cuomo must go: Sexual harassment in the workplace is no joke

Lindsey Boylan in her own words:

As he began to approach me, I excused myself from coworkers and moved upstairs to a more distant area of the party. Minutes later, I received a call from an unlisted number. It was the Governor’s body person. He told me to come to the Capitol because the Governor wanted to see me.

I made my way through the underground connection that linked the Plaza to the Capitol. As the black wrought-iron elevator took me to the second floor, I called my husband. I told him I was afraid of what might happen. That was unlike me. I was never afraid.

I chose that particular passage to highlight the psychological effects that sexual harassment produces, because we too often focus on evidence; specific words or physical contact of the harasser. And in the process, the humanity of the victim is sometimes sidelined. Sexual predators are persistent in their unwanted advances, and that persistence piles up on the target of their desires. So much so that it can adversely affect the victim's job performance, giving the predator one more tool to use against them. More from Lindsey:

Journalist who broke the "Marines United" nude photo story receives threats

Because cowardice and misogyny go hand-in-hand:

The Facebook page was first exposed by The Center for Investigative Journalism and North Carolina resident and retired Marine Thomas Brennan, working with The War Horse, a nonprofit military and veterans journalism organization.

While top military officials investigate at Camp Lejeune, local law enforcement officers in Onslow County are tracking down at least one person who has made threats against Brennan. Richlands, N.C., Police Chief Ron Lindig told McClatchy Tuesday Brennan and his wife were targeted online by a person apparently angry about his investigative work.

I'm sure he'll get more threats before this thing is over, because a whole bunch of these idiots didn't try to conceal their identity. They may have to make a new category for Bad Conduct Discharges that includes the word "Facebook" in there somewhere. But the sooner these jackasses are out of uniform the better. Here are a few excerpts from the report itself via the War Horse:

Once again, Zane tries to defend the indefensible

Attacking Elon students for speaking their minds:

Recently, more than 150 people who identified themselves as Elon students signed a petition demanding that the school disinvite the woman tapped to deliver the Baird Pulitzer Lecture on Oct. 4. Who is this enemy of the state? Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post, whose syndicated column appears in newspapers around the country. Her crime: raising questions about modern feminism.

Thankfully, Elon’s leaders rejected this petition. But this incident illuminates a frightening trend that represents nothing less than an existential threat to American democracy – the rise of the authoritarian left.

Considering that Parker has been pushing the ludicrous "war on men" theory, which postulates the patriarchal society problem is merely a construct of out-of-control feminism, while also marginalizing the campus rape crisis by bashing girls who drink alcohol and have "second thoughts" the next day, I don't blame Elon students for trying to keep her blathering off the campus. But as usual, Zane misses the forest for the trees:

Kay Hagan vs the skinny-dipping Senators

Not really that funny:

Kay Hagan just wanted to swim. It was late 2008, and the Democrat was newly arrived on Capitol Hill as North Carolina’s junior senator-elect. But Hagan was told that the Senate pool was males-only. Why? Because some of the male senators liked to swim naked.

It took an intervention by Senator Chuck Schumer, head of the Rules Committee, to put a stop to the practice, but even then “it was a fight,” remembers pollster Celinda Lake, who heard about the incident when the pool revolt was the talk among Washington women.

Really? And it took a female Senator complaining to make that stop? If I got elected to the Senate (work with me on this), and went to take a swim only to find nekkid Senators wallowing around in the water, I would have "accidentally" dropped a plugged-in hair dryer in there. Nobody wants to see that.

Rush Limbaugh once shared 1 radio station with UNC; today it's 8

Rush Limbaugh in all his glory

On March 23, 2012, the newsobserver.com published an article about Rush Limbaugh and WRDU, the UNC station at that time.

BlueNC.org co-founder James Protzman, who had been outspoken in his criticism of the university’s connection to Rush Radio said, “UNC’s response is more than I’d hoped for, but less than it should have been.”

Are 'Women's Issues' Necessary?

What is it that sets women and their 'issues' aside?

Civitas writer, Becki Gray thinks that “Women’s ‘Advocates’ are holding women back.” She has written about this in NC SPIN, October 4, 2014. Ms. Gray seems to think misogyny is over just as the Supreme Court thinks racism is over. Both are mistaken.

Making women’s rights an article of law is not ‘nanny care,’ it is a fitting and proper act of government, whose duty it is to protect all citizens. Women’s rights are just like everyone else’s rights, but not every person wants to admit that, let alone support it and live by it. If even she admits she had to ‘work hard to be seen and treated as an equal,’ than something is wrong with our society’s outlook on women. It wasn’t ‘women’s advocates’ she needed to persuade of her equality.
