How is this for primitive, un-evolved behavior? And it is reinforced by support of their reality show!

Further to our conversation at the meetup - "Records show a rape is committed every 22 minutes in India, a nation of 1.2 billion people"- add in the caste system and it definitely makes for a rape culture. http://news.ca.msn.com/world/india-gang-rape-strangling-of-2-sisters-renews-public-outrage-1

Wow, thanks for sharing that story, Bill. That's only a small percentage of the actual rapes due to most going unreported, and points to what could be considered the very definition of a 'rape culture'. Even more sad is that much of it occurs because of a lack of indoor plumbing.
Consider supporting Water.org. There mandate is potable water and sanitation that might have prevented this atrocity.

would like to discuss http://thinkprogress.org/health/2014/05/13/3437464/teen-girl-prom-impure-thoughts/
My concern is the root of the issue: what exactly is the problem? Is there a rape culture? who is cause of the problem? should someone else be responsible for solving or preventing the problem? If yes, to what extent may we infringe on that someone else's freedoms to that end? Or am I even posing the best questions?

Sorry Thursday night I have to work. This is a important topic Greg Pearcey wants to discuss & with all the crazy stuff going on like in Virginia where a girl was kicked out of her grad because fathers complained she might give their sons bad thoughts??
why is it becoming a woman's responsibility what a man thinks or does? Their should be responsible for themselves & their actions!
don't believe everything you read about the reasons she was asked to leave. However, the questions remain.
This is a group dedicated to ethical, moral treatment of other human beings. We believe in the betterment of the world and humankind through science, technology, and the search for truth.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
