Spanging hippie in Berkeley:"spare any change, pretty lady?"

Hippie: "not all men are bad, you know."
THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING ON MY APPEARANCE AND THEN MANSPLAINING TO ME THAT YOU ARE A NICE GUY™. I totally want to give you some on my money now.

I had a creepy experience yesterday. I was walking from my doctor's office to the train and this guy asked me how the doctor was. I assumed he was also a patient and said 'oh, he's fine'. Then he asked me if he was a good doctor at which point I realized he wasn't actually another patient. In fact he had followed me from the office. He asked for my name and number (uh, no) and as I was walking away said see you next month. That was what creeped me out because it means he must have been watching me for a while now.

GAAAH. That is way beyond creepy! And you've never seen him before? At the very least, please bring someone along with you the next time you go to that doctor and be super wary in general. I feel like there's got to be something more material you can do, but I know there are people on here who know much more about this sort of thing. Stay safe, and be careful!

Eurgh, that is creepy as fork! Can you speak to the surgery staff and/or local police to make them aware of it? I'm wondering if he's approached other people too, they might be able to tell you if there's a known creep round there.

I'm shocked by how nasty people are about celebrities getting divorced. Gwyneth Paltrow is supremely annoying, but I don't think she deserves all the nasty comments she is getting, with people speculating that it must be her fault. Its always sad when a relationship ends. I cannot imagine how hard it must be to be doing it in the public eye.

Blondiefk, I hope you can get some support, that sounds really creepy and horrible.

One of biker boy's friends sent out a group email to a bunch of people about going to dinner and bar trivia tomorrow night. Biker boy's response was that we were "in... sort of" and explained that it's my brother-in-law's birthday tomorrow and we're going to dinner for that and will try to meet up for bar trivia after. Someone on the email responded that he should "look for [his] balls in someone's purse..." I don't know this guy at all and I really want to call him out on it but I guess I will wait and see if either biker boy or the friend who started the email says anything.

What a douchey way to insult both of us in one go: he's less of a man because he's agreed to do something with my family and, of course, I'm a ball-buster because womenamirite?

That is so rude!

Maybe that guy should look for his manners in that purse, because he clearly lost them somewhere.

This article doesn't challenge my feminism exactly, but I'm halfway through it and it's challenging a lot of assumptions about communication, and, I think, is pretty interesting and relevant to anyone involved with doing sexual assault or harassment prevention at all. (The actual article is behind a paywall but if you have university connections you can probably find a way to read it.)

http://das.sagepub.com/content/10/3/293.abstract

I followed the link from this article, which is also really worth reading (and much less academic):

Uhh... what the fizzle... I've never seen anything like this and it is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen.
Spoilering because it could be triggering ... (an advertisement for false rape reporting?

Women have enough problems about coming forward when they are raped, I don't think we need something telling women it wasn't really rape.

Men's Rights Advocates are the worst.

Seriously, men are more likely to be raped than be falsely accused of rape.

I don't want to comment more, in case its triggering for anyone reading. But OMG RAGE.

oh man, this shiitake peas me of so much. i've never had this experience, but sometimes my husband forgets about plans he's made with me and makes other plans that don't involve me. so, then, when i remind him about our plans he's put in the awkward position of canceling his other plans (depending on what our plans were or whatever), but i always feel like someone is going to think i'm some sort of nagging ball buster wife. i hate that i even have to have that feeling.

at an old job i had where my multiple bosses were incredibly misogynistic, i mentioned moving in with my boyfriend over the weekend and said something like "yeah, he just had to make some room for me on the shelves" and my boss said "yeah, of course you made him get rid of his stuff to make room for you. women have so much stuff!" uhh what the fork? making room for me on some shelves in a shared apartment is like basic human decency? anyway, those guys HELLA challenged my feminism every day.

1 in 33 men will be the victim of attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. http://www.rainn.org/get-information/st ... lt-victims

Its always really hard to get numbers for false accusation, because so often the cases are withdrawn by the victim or not prosecuted so someone could be accused of a crime they actually committed but not prosecuted and that shouldn't count as a false accusation.

This project has the likelihood of being a victim of a false rape accusation is 1 in 27 million, but I can't find a reliable source for the number.
http://www.buzzfeed.com/charlesclymer/5 ... ing-f-fmeu

I'll keep digging though, and share what I find!

Ahhhh this happened last week to me. I was walking out of the bart and some dude asked me for change but called me pretty thing or sweet thing or something else similarly creepy and unwanted. I can't exactly remember. Husband was behind me, but far enough away that I wasn't "claimed" by him, so the dude thought I was fair game. After we walk past I say to my husband, "did you see that? That's an example of the unwanted attention I have to deal with every day" and felt super triumphant that it was actually documented. Husband says, "oh he was just trying to get your attention. He does that to everyone." AHHHHHHHHHH NO HE DOES NOT. 45 min later when we walk back into the Bart, hand in hand, dude says nothing to me because I'm obviously with a man.

I'm feeling all riled up now. I never told J how pissed off I was that he trivialized my experience.

Sigh. This is a men's rights response to the "Don't Be That Guy" campaign, which is actually super awesome. You guys should see it: http://www.theviolencestopshere.ca/dbtg.php

What? GAAAH. I started out being pissed off at the blatant patronization ("thank you, big daddy, for suggesting that half the human population might be considered something akin to people!") and then had an aneurysm. I don't buy their shitty candy bars anyway, but I hope that people who do will stop, and that the parent company suffers an enormous backlash from this shitshow.

The commercial could inadvertantly do something good.

How often do feminists get a big corproation to spend a pile of cash to put feminist memes into a commercial that will reach manistream people........plus the extra publicity of the controversy around the commercial?

Yes, the commercial is adolescent, manipulative, and insulting.
