DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Sen. Dan Inouye

October 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


Sen. Dan Inouye of Hawaii, a WWII veteran and now the third-longest-serving senator in American history, may have voted in roll call for Al Franken’s amendment to a larger Defense appropriations bill, which would end federal funding for defense contractors who abuse mandatory arbitration clauses to deny victims of assault (including sexual assault, like rape) the right to bring their case to court. But that amendment is now in danger at Inouye’s hands.

From HuffPo:

Inouye’s office, sources say, has been lobbied by defense contractors adamant that the language of the Franken amendment would leave them overly exposed to lawsuits and at constant risk of having contracts dry up. The Senate is considering taking out a provision known as the Title VII claim, which (if removed) would allow victims of assault or rape to bring suit against the individual perpetrator but not the contractor who employed him or her.

Well, we can’t let those contracts dry up, can we? That would be bad, wouldn’t it?

OH WAIT, prioritizing a bunch of fucking contracts over the rights of sexual assault victims would be more than bad. It would be a total fucking EPIC FAIL.

Time to tell that to Grandpa. Email or Call Inouye’s office now and tell him you don’t want victims forced into secret arbitration after they’ve suffered through the worst of violations, just because groups like KBR are making a big stink about being “exposed.”

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! RapeLay, The Video Game

March 20th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


To the people who developed RapeLay–a dark, first person Japanese video game that simulates the stalking, groping, and raping of two women and a girl in a subway, park, and bedroom–we feel sorry for you. You are sick, sad, twisted, violent, pathetic, low, inhuman, ugly fucks.

And if we ever meet you, we will chop your fucking dicks off.

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Tyrone Luther Hadnott

February 22nd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

The U.S. Military held a “Day of Reflection” for troops in Japan today, to emphasize professionalism and core military values in light of allegations that two U.S. servicemen have committed sexual assaults on the island of Okinawa. The “Day” comes amidst a flurry of new accusations that 38-year-old marine Tyrone Luther Hadnott raped a 14-year-old Japanese girl earlier this week.

Collective reports around the globe state that Hadnott vehemently denies raping the girl, though he admits to forcing her down and kissing her.

Here’s the thing. We’d be glad to know that Hadnott had the wherewithal to avoid violating the poor victim’s privates, but that’s burying the headline: SHE’S A 14-YEAR OLD GIRL, AND FORCING ROMANTIC ADVANCES ON HER IS WRONG. This shit isn’t just disgraceful, it’s downright despicable.

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK: Chikan

April 27th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Japan Today reported yesterday that a Tokyo man was arrested for groping a woman who happened to be a female police officer. As many of you may already know, groping and sexual assault on Japan’s shockingly overcrowded public trains (commonly known as “chikan”–pervert) have shown themselves to be such epidemics that many lines have begun to offer female-only trains. Cool–a band-aid solution, at best, but at the very least a well-intended effort.

Which is why I am shocked and disgusted to see this kind of horrible assault depicted in yet another f’ing weird offensive Asian porn video. It’s so mind-blowingly wrong, I can’t embed it on our site, but you can access the *INCREDIBLY NSFW* piece here.

THIS SHIT IS WRONG. IF THERE WAS A WORD FOR “MORE WRONG THAN WRONG” I WOULD USE THAT WORD. THIS IS DISGRASIAN AT ITS VERY DEEPEST CORE.

I’ve gotta add: The train rape fetish is truly bad enough, but the fact that the commentators on the site don’t seem to realize how absolutely grave and wrong it is, is what truly makes me sick to my stomach.

And so, to all those involved in the persistence of CHIKAN, you are Disgrasian of the Weak. Surely you can do better.
