Sexual Abuse Stats and an article about Pornography


Yes indeed I could overload you with statistics, but one should suffice: 99% of sexual violence is committed by men and 89% of the victims are women according to the U.S. Department of Justice. And the bell hooks book is an excellent explanation of feminism. So far as Condi Rice is concerned, I guess you could say she is suffering from token woman syndrome. It seems like there are always a few women who want to be more patriarchal-than-thou and inevitably they get thrust in the spotlight. I don’t think it is penis envy so much as simply believing that the only way she will be taken seriously is if she buys into the the very system that is still very much discriminating against both people of color and women. Anyhow, thanks Marcus for bringing all this up.

Going back to the pornography issue, here is a story that you might want to check out. Porn generates billions of dollars every year. We talk about ‘adult entertainment’ but the reality is it is mostly men using women to entertain men. Lots of money to be made and it is worth knowing who is making it. The article is “Addicted to Porn“.
