'Topless women from the Femen feminist movement* [NSFW] on Sunday urinated on photos of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in Paris to condemn a crackdown on protesters angry about his rejection of a key EU deal.
Five women from the group gathered in front of the Ukrainian embassy in the morning, bared their breasts and then took off their knickers to defile the photographs they placed on the sidewalk.
The slogan "Yanukovych piss off!" was painted on their torsos. They then left and there were no arrests.
The protest came after policemen armed with truncheons broke up a 1,000-strong protest in Kiev on Saturday calling for Yanukovych's resignation after he suspended work on a trade and partnership agreement with the European Union that had been years in the making.
Femen is a Ukrainian group whose members have drawn attention worldwide with nude stunts targeting a range of political and religious figures, including Italy's Silvio Berlusconi and Putin.'

'A mob of pro-abortion feminists attacked a Catholic cathedral in San Juan, Argentina, assaulting the men who stood in front of it praying, and finally burning an effigy of Pope Francis.
Citing Argentinian news sources, LifeSite News reported that video footage had been taken of a mob of angry women, many of them topless, harassing the men who stood in front of the cathedral to protect it, reciting prayers. The men did not retaliate as the women drew Hitler mustaches on their faces with marker, spray painted their faces, clothes and crotch areas, and sexually harassed them.
Police were not on hand at the time. They reportedly told media they couldn’t intervene because the protesters were women.
The incident took place on Nov. 24, Argentina’s National Women’s Encounter, held annually to bring together Argentinean feminists. It is sponsored by the Department of Culture as a social interest event.'

Letter here. Excerpt:
'Democrat Assemblyman Reed Gusciora shows his socialist, tyrannical big government tendencies. His sponsoring of legislation for a domestic violence registry is typical of tyrants acting for the “best interests” of the people, despite U.S. Supreme Court rulings that “the state owes no duty to protect residents from each other.”
His domestic violence registry to protect women is a farce and a fraud. More than 40 percent of domestic violence occurs against men, but the state Legislature is run by radical feminists, who criminally extort all taxpayers’ monies to fund their suspect domestic abuse programs. This is discrimination, Equal Protection violations, and taxpayer fraud.
In many divorce cases, men are falsely arrested and removed from their homes and children on false domestic violence because judges and police claim they have to “err on the side of caution” — and don’t want to see their names in the newspapers if something goes wrong. But, how many women go to jail for perjury for making false domestic abuse claims? Zero.'

'Tom Acton, 16, died in hospital three days after being found in a critical condition in his bedroom having self harmed with a blade just days before he was due to testify at the trial of one of his tormentors.
The rumour began circulating in the local area and on Facebook and resulted in mobs of angry youths targeting him in the street and turning up at the family's front door saying they wanted to kill him and "get rid of the vermin."
Tom, from Poynton, Cheshire went to live with his grandmother temporarily but after he returned was beaten up and grabbed by a teenager who shouted at him: "Apparently you strapped someone to a tree and raped them and took pictures. You are dead."
He described the bullying campaign mounted by one of Greenwood's friends saying: "He started rumours that I'd raped girls. It boils down to the fact that I got on better with girls and he didn't like it.
"There were rumours that I had tied a girl to a tree, raped her and took pictures. As you can imagine I can no longer walk down the street as everyone calls me a rapist.'

'A woman accused of faking cancer is standing trial for falsely claiming she was raped by two men.
Sara Ylen, 38, of Lexington, Michigan, has admitted using make-up to make it look like she had been attacked.
James Johnson, a retired detective sergeant for the Sanilac County Sheriff Department, gave evidence yesterday at St Clair County Court, in Michigan, and said he had never heard a victim provide so much detail when he interviewed her after the alleged assault.
James Grissom, who spent 10 years in jail after being convicted of raping Ylen in 2003, was also
present in court yesterday.
Grissom was released in November 2012 after new evidence showed Ylen had made other accusations of rape.
She also faces fraud charges in Sanilac County following an investigation by Michigan State Police who investigated Ylen's cancer claims in May 2012 and discovered none of the doctors she listed had diagnosed her with cancer.
Her trial related to fake cancer claims begins on February 4.
The trial related to false rape claims continues today.'

'WARREN COUNTY, Miss. - Sheriff Martin Pace said a man took a bullet to the abdomen on Monday during a drive-by shooting. The trigger man was not a member of any gang, but rather, the man's estranged wife. 58-year-old Mary Lou Neeley is accused of driving by the house of her husband, Billy Neeley, on Deer Circle on Monday. The latter was reportedly in the driveway working on his car when Mary Lou drove by and shot her husband in the stomach, according to Pace.
The wounded man was able to call 911 and give authorities a description of the car and his estranged wife, whom he identified as the shooter.
"She pulled up to the residence where he was working on his vehicle. It's believed that at this time she actually fired the shots from within her vehicle. He was struck at least once in the abdomen," Pace said.'
'That is the issue raised by four plaintiffs in a lawsuit challenging Connecticut alimony laws. In a suit entitled John Doe et al vs. Dannel P. Malloy filed in the United States District court for the district of Connecticut, the plaintiffs seek a Declaratory Judgment that the alimony laws violate the due process requirements of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and further seek an injunction against the enforcement of the laws.
As the lawsuit points out, nowhere in the statute is the purpose of alimony set forth. Without a purpose the application of the alimony laws becomes unpredictable, both in amount and length of the award, bordering on arbitrary and capricious.
The 38-page complaint recites the various historical and statutory basis for alimony. It points out that in today’s equality based society, the award of alimony may be a historical anachronism, dating back to a time when women were excluded from the workplace, and generally expected to be stay-at-home mothers.'
Article here. Less a story specific to MR but certainly tangentially relevant. Justice delayed is justice denied, and plenty of NCPs (almost all dads) know this from experience. The divorce/child custody mill is just far too easy for the wrong kind of people to exploit. Excerpt:
'A Manhattan mom is fed up with all the delays in her three-year child-custody battle — so she’s suing the judge.
Public-relations exec Maggie Rhee Karn claims in her $10 million federal lawsuit that Manhattan Family Court Referee Marva Burnett has been stringing out the case for more than three years, costing the mom more than $200,000 in legal fees while allowing her ex-husband to control major decisions about their 9-year-old’s schooling and religion.
Kenneth was given temporary custody after a court-appointed attorney for the child expressed concern to the judge that Maggie would relocate to a third apartment, according to a partial transcript.
“This is the worst case I’ve ever seen,” said Lask, a veteran family-law attorney.
A Westchester dad fighting for custody of his 2-year-old son sued Burnett this past March, claiming she left a motion pending for 474 days.
Maggie has been in court 40-plus times since 2009, when she filed for full custody and her husband countersued to have his daughter half of the time.
“This case has never been about the best interest of my child, but appears to be a financial profit to everyone Referee Burnett appoints,” Maggie wrote in a letter last February to Administrative Judge Edwina Richardson-Mendelson.
Kenneth’s attorney, Cheryl Solomon, told The Post that Maggie is partly to blame. Solomon noted that the mother has switched counsel twice and filed appeals that have slowed down the process.'
Article here. Excerpt:
'Despite all of this and in complete keeping with my deep-seated feminism, I believe that making fatherhood optional—as motherhood is—and revamping the child support system to stop requiring financial support from noncustodial parents (usually men) who want to opt out early is good for women, men, and the kids in question. In addition, we should further our support of women who choose to opt out of motherhood via abortion or adoption as well. It’s time to make parenthood a true choice, on every level.
Additionally, lack of access to abortion doesn’t mean we should be unfair to men. We need to stand by women’s reproductive freedom, no matter what choice a woman makes. And a woman who wants a child needs to be prepared to support that child even if the biological father is not willing. I don’t believe that we will ever have true reproductive autonomy until men are offered the option, as women are, to opt out. We will never have full reproductive autonomy if we continue to put an asterisk next to “my body, my choice” and add the footnote “but if I decide to have a baby, pal, you have to pay.”'
"New Day Midday looks at a female CEO that says white men can't be harassed." Video here. If you're using a non-Flash-supporting device, you can see the video on YouTube here. Also see this article. Excerpt:
'The female CEO of Archie Comics accused by five employees of being sexually inappropriate said she can’t possibly be guilty of harassment, since the people lodging complaints against her are all white men.
Nancy Silberkleit’s lawyer argues that a gender discrimination lawsuit filed against her earlier this year by a group of employees should be thrown out because white males aren’t members of “a protected class,” the New York Daily News reported.
The lawyers for the plaintiffs, who include Archie president Mike Pellerito and editor-in-chief Victor Gorelick, claim Miss Silberkleit used the word “penis” arbitrarily and frequently, often shouting it at business meetings.
“[T]he word ‘penis’ became somewhat of a campaign slogan and her preferred method of referring to employees in lieu of their names,” their filing says, the Daily News reported.
The plaintiffs also claim Miss Silberkleit stalked employees and their families. They seek $32.5 million in damages and a court order keeping her two miles away from the office.'
