PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEERS speak out about sexual assault on assignment around the world—and the culture of victim blaming in the organization's Washington, D.C. offices. One volunteer "was gang raped in Bangladesh in 2004 by a group of young men after she says Peace Corps officials in the country ignored her pleas to re-locate her. 'They all took turns raping me," she told ABC News. 'They raped me with their bodies. They raped me with foreign objects. . . . Every day we felt unsafe. And we reported everything, we just kept reporting.'"

REVISITING Chalk Circle, D.C.'s first all-female punk band.
HARASSED at the White House: "I like to walk past the White House when going to work because it reminds me of all of the freedoms and opportunities I have as an American. So being harassed right in front of it is somewhat ironic, not to mention disappointing. This guy was in his 30s, wearing a red baseball cap and red jacket on his bike. His rode right behind me for a while and made comments about my skirt (which is past my knees) and then when I turned around and yelled at him, he sped off. Coward."
THE UVA COMMUNITY can submit comments on the school's proposed changes to its sexual assault policies until May 20.
BOTOX before it's too late.
HOW TO TELL EVERYONE YOU HAVE A GIANT PENIS: "All of those wonderful huge-dick stereotypes don’t apply unless everyone knows your big secret—and that’s just not going to happen," unless you write an article about your giant penis and publish it online, like Charles Allen did. "There is no casual way to spread the word that you’ve got a plus-size penis. Any attempt to disseminate information regarding your Richard will—nay, must—be met with skepticism, pity, and annoyance. At best people will assume you’re lying; at worst they’ll believe you and think you’re bragging. You look like a tool either way." ALSO: What are the wonderful stereotypes associated with having a gigantic penis? Isn't it essentially just that your penis is huge?
CAT COMMUNE sadly a hoax.
RANKING the Real Housewives singles. "Money Can't Buy You Class" all the way, baby!
"FEELING CLEAN is soooo important."
