The same as leering at someone?
Or do I not understand what "eye rape" means?

I'm not saying the two experiences (corporate hospital childbirth & being leered at) are comparable, I am saying that they are two cases where people shouldn't be calling a thing "rape" since it's not useful. A lot of stuff happens to people's bodies in hospitals without their consent... not really more rapey just because a vagina is in the mix for this instance

drunk asshole humps reviewer's leg at a girlfriend-metal show

This is not a review
This week, Rosie Solomon was sexually assaulted while watching one of her favourite bands. Here, she describes her experience and how she took action.

SPOILERSPOILER_SHOW
This is the WORST review we’ve ever gotten (WE WANT YOU TO READ IT!). I hope we never read another article like this. The following article and coinciding text is posted with the active consent from Rosie Solomon, who wrote the review, and with whom we have offered whatever kind of apology we can:

http://www.redbrick.me/music/this-is-not-a-review/

We have always considered our audience, on the whole, to be overwhelmingly nice. We have far too many examples in support of this statement to list, and that’s well beside the point anyhow. Since beginning, many years ago, we have sought to set and maintain a high moral/ethical standard for ourselves; just as we do for those in our audience who are willing to listen and meet get to know us, apart from our stage personae. Behind the façade of our music, lyrics, and occasional fanfare, beyond the stage, the amps, the drums and the all the other racket, we are utterly average human beings, whose opinions, thoughts, and experiences are extraordinarily similar to those of us without instruments, albums, and press-releases. We have families, partners, and children and a crew (many of whom are female). All this time, we have made an effort to recognize that any of our perceived popularity is likely some net-result or byproduct borne of our passion and love for music. In truth, we truly dislike the idea of separating ourselves, in any fundamental way, from our audience.

FACT: we have no tolerance for sexism, or any form of intolerant/insensitive behavior. In Baroness’ real, functioning touring-world, we are witness to daily proof-by-example that gender exerts no weight on the scales of capability, strength or intelligence. Additionally, we are extremely sensitive to the gender-disparity that can exist, especially within the world of rock/metal music; and we are embarrassed and disturbed that Rosie (or anyone, for that matter) could have had such a terrible experience at one of our shows. (PLEASE NOTE: it is not any more or less important that this abuse occurred at a Baroness show, or even at a show at all.) IT SIMPLY SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. Not in a club, on the street, at home. . . anywhere. The fact that this happened at a show that we put on brings the story more directly to our ears; and we felt immediately compelled to react. After speaking with Rosie Solomon, and gaining her permission, we decided to share her article. We can only hope, anxiously and hopefully, that someone who needs to read this does so, and pays attention to her story, in order that it might have a positive effect. I promise, not one person amidst the Baroness tour-party would show sympathy for the man in this article. We do not condone and we do not tolerate any form of sexual aggression or intolerance, nor will we ever. The man detailed in this article, whoever you are, if you read this post, stay the fuck away from Baroness and our audience. We don’t need you at our show, we don’t want you in our audience. - - - Baroness

Foot Foot wrote:What Is "Birth Rape"?

People who use the phrase are aware that the use of the word "rape" in this instance is controversial. The blog Navel-Gazing Midwife argues that it applies:

"I know that the majority of people reading the definition of rape and attempting to apply it to birth trauma will feel it is a stretch to do so. It took decades to believe that rape occurred in marriage or that women could be rapists, too, so expanding the definition to include birth might take a very long time and, I am sure, many, many years and a slew of failed lawsuits before anyone in the legal system recognizes birth traumas/abuses, much less birthrape."
I assumed the argument was that the baby itself was the motherfucker in this situation

but
A vulnerable woman, who is powerless to leave the situation, is at times held down against her will, has strangers looking & touching at private parts of her body, perhaps without appropriate measures being taken to acknowledge her ownership of her body or to preserve her comfort levels. Perhaps she has fingers or instruments inserted without her consent, and sometimes against her consent, invading and crossing decent boundaries. She is fearful of what is happening to her and perhaps for the wellbeing of her baby, and receives no reassurance that either she or her child are ok. That is a violation, no matter how you look at it. Even IF this treatment is given with no malice and the intent of attempting to assist her with birthing her child, there is NEVER a reason to forgo common decencies that will enable her to maintain a role in the birth, some autonomy over her body, to be involved in the decision-making, to be informed about what they want to do BEFORE they do it.
...this is a bit of a stretch

International recording artist in his early 40's along with two Norwegian women in their 20's arrested for gang raping a passed out woman with a dildo. Norwegian press rarely release the identity of perpetrators in criminal cases. One of the women perpetrators is a former Norwegian Idol contestant. The story broke in Norway today and hasn't gotten any international traction yet. Any hot takes?

To be fair that language phonetically sounds like a mouth fart/diarrhea to the average English speaker.

It's a silly and unpoetic language with limited expressive range, inferior in most ways to English as a tool for effective, nuanced and precise communication, with so many weird dialects that half of us are unintelligible to each other
