    Maybe this should go in the Arab Spring thread, but Saadi Gaddafi has been extradited from Niger.

    Kentucky attorney general won't personally appeal the ruling that Kentucky must accept gay marriages. The governor will apparently pursue other means of continuing to try to keep his state as a shit-tier one, but... this dude's announcement speech is still really righteous.

    That was a really awesome speech and it's cool to see a high-level attorney show that kind of emotion.

    Oh and there was polling done on gay marriage again, and about 50% of Americans see marriage equality being a constitutional right.

    As someone who has had two cousins (one female, one male) who were not only sexually assaulted while serving in the Army, but saw their attackers basically got off with a slap on the wrist I am extremely pissed off at this.

    how do you even argue to NOT fight against sexual assault in the military?? "oh .. weeelll.... its just too hard to prosecute so it's just a risk of the job you gotta watch out for" like what in the literal fuck

    also I thought i read somewhere that Male on Male sexual assault was higher than male on female... but I wonder if that's just in reported cases? I think it was on an article about this garbage politician (who basically said "Wouldn't you love to have a group of 19-year-old girls under your control, day in, day out?" in regard to sexual assault in the military)


    garbage politicians basically

    Bad to the bone, indeed. Also prooooobably wasn't such a great idea to do this at a sexual assault legal conference.

    A Malaysia Airlines Flight carrying 239 people went missing on its way to Beijing. About 2 hours into its flight authorities just lost contact with it. The story is still early and underway so no one knows was has actually happened yet. It's just scary to think over 200 people can just disappear like that without any warning. I'm hoping for the best out of this situation.

    If it makes you feel any better the state just passed a law now making it illegal to take upskirt photos.

    Yeah absolutely nothing wrong with keeping the investigation and punishment of sexual assaults and harassment in the hands of the Military's chain of command.

    Oh and North Korea, China's starting to get tired of your shit.

    According to an update, the plane has crashed 153 miles south from a Vietnamese island. This doesn't look good.

    Thanks for the update. I wish it wasn't bad news but the siuation looked bleak from the beginning, so it was expected. My condolences to the families of the victims.

    Malaysia Airlines is one of the better airplane services in Malaysia. So for it to get into an accident is something really serious. Our TV stations are squeezing out whatever information they can get but I think they're still looking for it. All we can do now is pray and wait.
