Yet another social experiment with the same results yet again.
Yet another social experiment with the same results yet again.
I note that, religious nut-cases aside, medical professionals regularly speak out about routine neonatal genital mutilation for boys. It is always refreshing to hear someone who in a position to do harm with impunity refuse to do so on ethical grounds.
Pay close attention to people’s reactions. ’nuff said.

Can someone tell me WTF it is about so many women that attempt to cut off men’s penises? We don’t hear about men trying to cut of the wife’s breasts or clitorises. I can’t count the number of times that I’ve had women joke about cutting of my penis, or the applause and laughter that accompanies such thoughts.
Sugar and spice and everything nice? I think not.
NEW CASTLE (KDKA) – A woman was arrested after allegedly trying to cut off her husband’s penis with a box cutter in Ellwood City.
According to the criminal complaint, Lisa Jones-Orock, 39, of Ellwood City, is facing charges stemming from an altercation Friday night inside an apartment on Sankey Street.
Jones-Orock initially told police her husband, Gerald Orock, attacked her with a knife. As a result, the man was briefly taken into custody.
After being taken to the New Castle Police Department, the man told police Jones-Orock tried to cut his penis off with a box cutter.
Inside of the apartment, police found the suspected blue box cutter and blood on the floor.
The man’s pants were cut in the crotch area. He also had cuts to his arms and hands. Police determined the wounds were defensive in nature.
“We deal with domestic situations all the time, but I don’t recall anything getting this physical where genitalia was attacked,” New Castle Police Lt. David Cumo said. “He said she had attacked him with the box cutter and was trying to cut off his penis. Officers observed cuts in his crotch area of his pants, some cuts on his legs. He did have a cut on his left forearm and his right hand which did indicate defensive wounds to them.”
Meanwhile, Jones-Orock was taken into custody on an outstanding bench warrant for DUI.
She was already being lodged in the Lawrence County Jail when police determined she was the attacker in this incident.
A small bag of marijuana was also found in her purse.
She is now facing a list of charges including, aggravated assault, simple assault, possession of marijuana and harassment.
Meanwhile, her husband has been charged for violating a protection from abuse order Jones-Orock had previously taken out. He was also charged for marijuana possession.
He is also being held in the Lawrence County Jail.
After watching this video, ask yourself: Should this woman decided to allege that the boy tried to take advantage of her and that she had to defend herself against him–which of the two would be believed?
WHY don’t decent blokes do anything? Have we lost our collective cojones?
In today’s viral video of feral females monstering an innocent train passenger, the most depressing aspect is the sea of faces studiously looking down at their phones, tablets, papers – anywhere but at the aggressors and their victim.
Nobody got up to help, to shield the man, tell the girls to pull their heads in or even to show silent support … not until the teenagers had left the carriage.
I’m sure everyone had a reason to not get involved – as a daily train traveller who has seen plenty of vile incidents, I get the dilemma – but in the cold light of day it adds up to a shocking show of apathy, especially from the men.
What has happened to us? And it’s specifically the blokes I’m talking to.
Why, in such a situation, do ordinary guys sitting nearby not exchange glances, give each other a nod and take collective action?
When young oiks of either sex rampage up and down train carriages, distressing mums and kids with vile language, why do the big guys in suits or fluoro vests – the regular real men who would not wish their families subjected to this – not stand up together, exercise their natural authority and bring calm to the situation?
It works; and even if it does not stop the idiots, it gives the traumatised victim a much-needed shield and comfort.
“But I don’t know what’s going on, it’s not my business,” I hear you think. “How do I know who’s in the right?”
Even if it’s not obvious, you don’t need to know – just stopping the situation escalating is enough, then leave matters of right/wrong/crime to the proper authorities.
I’m no hero: I’ve asked gangs of swearing teens to stop and had great results, possibly because I spoke with respect; I’ve also chosen not to tackle big, hairy Neanderthals in the same situation because they looked way too dangerous. A considered decision, but for a time I still hated that I bottled.
I’ve tackled a bag-snatcher and chased him away from his victim and his loot, but backed off when he turned on me in case he had a weapon. Another considered decision – one that I was much happier with.
I don’t suggest people put themselves in danger, but I’d argue that a few calm adult men acting as a group would be enough to dissipate the danger in these situations.
Humans are capable of heroic altruism – witness those ordinary citizens who confront serious maniacs like terrorists – but can be shockingly slow to act.
Who stepped in when Nigella Lawson was being choked in a restaurant by her husband? Nobody. Not a single one of their genteel, cashed-up fellow diners.
In the recent string of racist attacks on Australian buses, a few brave souls have intervened for the victims – but far too few.
It’s time to stand up and be counted, fellas. Be the role models and leaders our society needs, but don’t leave each other hanging when someone gets the ball rolling.
When ordinary good guys act together, it can be an enormously powerful force.
