"Pics Or It Didn't Happen" One look at the Comments section on any of the articles that have popped up in the past two weeks offers insight to why. When two women are involved the popular social media retort, "pics or it didn't happen" is among the tamest.And not surprisingly, the vast majority appear to be from men who find the abuse claims "hot." However when two men are involved the tone differs, radically.The petitioner sought a direction to the health and communication ministries to block all such websites of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft which were violating the law.The search engines should also be asked to forthwith stop all such advertisements that were in breach of PNDT Act, he said.Directing the listing of the matter for further hearing February 4, the court directed Google, Microsoft and Yahoo to carry out its order on their respective policy pages and terms of service.The interim order came during the hearing of a petition by Sabu Mathew George that sought direction for prohibiting sex determination test advertisements on the Internet.A PIL filed by Dr Sabu Mathew George presented evidence to a bench comprising Chief Justice K. Dr George, who has been active in campaigns against female foeticide, said the apex court in 2003 had ordered strict implementation of the PNDT Act, which aims to prevent pre-natal sex determination that, in India, lead to female foeticide. Panchal about the impunity with which ads and links provided in the search engines were promoting sex determination.
The message to anyone who legitimately being abused, whether in a same-sex relationship or professional dynamic, is loud and clear.
Same-Sex Abuse Cases Hushed Up And yet the latest study by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs indicates that same-sex couples are actually at greater risk of abuse than their heterosexual counterparts.
According to the coalition, in 2011 there were 3,930 reported cases between LGBT couples, with the number of domestic violence deaths triple the previous year. And the inherent isolation that many marginalized groups experience only exacerbates the problem, with some LGBT cut off from their families after "coming out" or lacking the equivalent resources made available to heterosexual individuals.
Occurrences of same-sex harassment are rare, even less than the rate of men reporting sexual harassment cases against women. The EEOC says claims have doubled in the last five years. Do you remember anything about this 2009 Cheesecake Factory settlement?
Or this Million car dealership case from earlier this year?
