How many posts before someone criticizes Andres Serrano for being irresponsible with his freedom of speech though?

This may be from 2011, but its disturbing nonetheless...

Sad to say, it pays to be a man in many parts of the world. In fact, in India, some parents are paying doctors to turn their young daughters into sons in hopes of improving the family’s prospects.
The state government in Madhya Pradesh is currently investigating claims that as many as 300 girls were surgically turned into boys in the city of Indore -- with the parents paying as much $3,190 for the privilege of being able to say: “She’s a boy!”
During the surgery, known as genitoplasty, doctors fashion a male penis from the female sex organs, according to the Telegraph. To finish the change, girls are also injected with male hormones.
Although advocates for women’s and children’s rights are denouncing the sex change operations as “social madness,” according to Telegraph, but it is not as though gender discrimination is new. In India, gender bias has existed for centuries, thanks to cultural traditions, including that the daughter’s family is responsible for paying for an elaborate wedding and an expensive dowry.
Forced Sex Change On Young Girls A Growing Concern In India

Things may be unfair here in the U.S. when it comes to contraceptives and such, but at least no - or very few - parents are changing their daughters into boys out of cultural disdain for females.

The parents of a central Indiana boy are suing Ball State University, alleging their son was subjected to "horrific sexual abuse" by fellow second-graders at a university-run school who they say acted out scenes from pornographic videos they downloaded on school computers.
The lawsuit says the boy was 8 years old when he was forced to engage numerous times in sex acts with other children at Burris Laboratory School in Muncie in late 2011. Four second-grade boys, including the alleged victim and another student described as the "ringleader," are believed to have been involved in the sex abuse, the complaint alleges.
Ball State spokesman Tony Proudfoot said in a written statement that the university learned in December 2011 of allegations of inappropriate behavior among four second-graders at the school. He said the matter was "reported promptly" to local law enforcement and the Indiana Department of Child Services.
Burris Laboratory School Officials Failed To Protect Boy From Peer Sex Abuse: Lawsuit

Why didn't the school block those sites? Many work places block porn, but a school does not? They honestly thought kids wouldn't look at them? That school failed the students - especially the victim - big time, but I also can't help but wonder what kind of homes those kids come from to think its OK to look at porn and sexually abuse other students. It appears that at home and at school, the kids had very little supervision in their lives, as well as not being taught much about morals and empathy.

Second graders were doing that? That depresses me beyond any words.

That is one of the most disturbing things I think I've ever read or ever will read. Holy crap.

So true. Honestly, when I hear these type of stories, I wish the world would end in December. Laugh all you want, but I just to don't want to be part of the human race when I read stories like that.

No argument from me on that.

Stories like that also make me feel like any sort of faith I try and hold in humanity is futile and stupid.

But it's an unusually slow night at work, and I'm incredibly bored (for some reason my iPad will connect to the Internet, but my laptop won't, so I can't get paid to play video games). I can assure you that Springfield is doing its very, very best to keep batshit crazy alive. Yet somehow, amidst all of its non-newsworthy batshit craziness, I never so much as heard about or saw anything relating to that particular story (and now I wonder who got that call, because I'd be awfully surprised if the cops didn't call an ambulance down there to look at the guy's ear--or lack of). But then again, I normally get enough examples of how fucked up humans are at work and listen to show tunes more often than I go out looking for stories about tortures, animal cruelty, and raping babies. This is kind of a soul-sucking thread if you sit down and read through it all at once. Good thing I don't have a soul.

Ugh.

I admire her courage. Here's hoping she'll make a full recovery and keep on fighting.

According to its web site, the Wesleyan branch of Beta Theta Pi fraternity has five "core principles": "mutual assistance," "intellectual growth," "trust," "responsible conduct" and "integrity." According to a new lawsuit, it also has a cool nickname: "Rape Factory."
Nothing like the deadpan post-ironic humor of college students. "Rape Factory"! A horrible mechanized assembly line, designed and structured for a single objective: rape. An unnamed former Wesleyan student is suing the university for failing to "to supervise, discipline, warn or take other corrective action" against the fraternity, which she says had a "reputation in the Wesleyan community as the 'Rape Factory'"

I get so livid when I read these stories, and also depressed. Seriously, what is with men, or guys in this matter? What's with the hate towards women that you have to assault and humiliate them? Or are you so insecure with your masculinity that you have to do this shit?

If I were the kind to take offense, I might be extremely put off by this blanket statement. Why ask 'what is with men?' when a handful of doorknobs commit acts like this? Do you really think it's a problem with the entire gender or would it be more responsible to ask what is with these people in particular? It's stuff like this that makes me occasionally comment on the anti-male sentiment that sometimes rears its head around here

Maybe I generalized too much there. But honestly, I can't help but notice how rampant misogyny is in this world. I don't think most men realize this because patriarchy has been around for millennia, and they don't think much of their attitude towards women.

I get angry when I hear about men mistreating women like its their right. Heck, I get enraged when I am mistreated because I am a woman, and it does happen. You'd be surprised how many guys hold misogynist views and don't hide it when women are around.

I can't help but notice that when men complain about women, its OK - they're letting off steam. But when a woman complains about men, she's a crazy psycho bitch.
