Nigella Lawson cocaine use will be subject to police review after all

Nigella Lawson cocaine use will be subject to police review after all | Life and style | theguardian.com.

It makes me angry really angry to see this. This is a woman publically attacked by her then husband. In the divorce he threatens to destroy her and bullies her to the witness stand. You know the man that is married to a great cook and prefer to eat burned toast. What a way to humiliate and spurn the one you claim to love.

She admits to some use of cocaine when her beloved husband is dying of cancer, a disease that took more loved ones. She also mentioned intimate terrorosm and needing to smake a joint with a life problem (marital problems).

SHE is now under investigation for cocaine use and HE is not for intimate terrirosm, bulliying and threatening behavious He threatened to destroy her. He seems to have the tools and money to at least try that and work the system. With this message he is making clear that this was not just a threat. I just hope that this piece Charles Saatchi was loser in court of public opinion | Art and design | The Guardian. wll remain true.

When are the powers that be going to look at the root cause? His controlling behaviour toward her and take things form there. But oh I forgot. He’s a man and a rich one with powerful connections to boot.  Maybe we should change the proverb to Hell hath no fury but a perceived poweful controlling man scorned.

Nigella is staying dignified and strong. it seems. Still not a fan of her as a TV cook but she definately is going up in my inspirational women lists

Funny how gender never came up during Bernanke’s nomination. Or Greenspan’s. Or Volcker’s.

Wonderful way to fight back. It is at their own game And all of a sudden legislating male reproduction is silly? I don’t think so.

The Steubenville Case – When Will Women Start to Matter?

I found this through twitter. Those boys did loose their future, they threw it away. They only have themselves to blame for that. The girl is still being blamed and haunted. She too lost her future. The difference? Those boys took it from her. They felt invincible and bigger than the world. They feel sorry for themselves that their victim refused to remain a victim and stood up to be counted.
That girl in the Steubenville case is a hero, she deserves to be counted and heard.
PS the anonymous people that helped the girl are now facing jail. About 4 times what the rapist got, just for showing what a botched job the police did and just because they cared about an innocent woman. More on that in the related articles

Crates and Ribbons

In the aftermath of the trial of Richmond and Mays, Megan Carpentier writes in yesterday’s Guardian, “Rape is unique in US society as a crime where the blighted future of the perpetrators counts for more than the victim’s.”

Indeed, this is an apt observation, given the sickening way in which CNN, among others, reported on the verdict two days ago. Given the anger this had sparked on blogs and other social media, you’ve probably come across it by now, but just in case you haven’t, here’s what CNN had to say about Mays and Richmond’s being found guilty of rape:

Reporter Poppy Harlow: “I’ve never experienced anything like it, Candy. It was incredibly emotional, incredibly difficult even for an outsider like me to watch what happened as these two young men that had such promising futures — star football players, very good students — we literally watched as they…

Now how is that for tit for tat, and taking them on in their own game? Specifically like the  “…any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.” part

Two women in politics

Two women in politics thatdeserve a lot of our admiration today.

One of them was primeminister of Australia. Today she lost the vote to Rudd. I do admire her a lot. So sad to see her go as prime-minister. She is awesome and this shows why and what she is up against in parliament in Australia

Julia Gillard’s misogyny speech – YouTube.

The other one just filibustered the whole of Texan senate to save the abortion rights of women I’d never heard of her before, but the woman has guts and a back. The cheering for her on the public area is worth looking up. Republicans even went as far as inveting time travel to get the bill passed anyway. As it was streamed live they could not hold on to that deceit and they lost. Wendy Davis now is forever known for her stamina. I say Wendy for president

I so wish that I could say that this surprises me. However it does not. It confirms my worst suspisions, my cynism to privacy rules and really what irks me the most is that the EU denounced ACTA and insistend on Internet pricavy and openess. Turns out that the US just did what they did not get the democratic way anyway. They snooped the data of all of us. Not just americans, Not just terorist suspects, but everybody, mainly foreigners Hey well that is me you are spying on!

EU what are you going to do about this flagrant tossing aside of our law?
