    Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has existed for years. The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known. Waters, 38, was ousted from his post effective today, OSU President Michael V. Drake said. Details of the investigation are laid out in...

    Campbell Police Chief Tim Kelemen is on paid leave while authorities investigate whether he broke the law when he used a tea party activist's information online. Board members during a special meeting Thursday voted unanimously to take action against the embattled chief after public outcry that he lost credibility and trust from many in the small community. It's a routine move when an employee is under investigation and not an indication Kelemen is guilty of a crime, said his attorney Jim Birnbaum. "It's neither surprising nor something we don't understand," he said.

    Readers of my recent columns are already aware that UNC-Wilmington graduates can get a gold cord for good grades, a purple one for being a homosexual, and a lavender one for just being really supportive of homosexuals. Most readers probably think this is too many graduation cords. I actually think we need one more. In fact, I think we should offer a white graduation cord for students who got their degrees without ever asserting victim status in an effort to get something they didn't really deserve. Of course, if we ever do distribute these cords, we will have to decide...

The officer was among about 30 officers assigned to provide traffic control and security for the annual Utah Pride Parade on Sunday in Salt Lake City, said department spokeswoman Lara Jones. "We don't tolerate bias and bigotry in the department, and assignments are assignments ...

    ‘Two, four, six, eight. Stop the violence. Stop the rape.” So chanted a group of Ohio University students calling themselves “f***rapeculture” at a protest a couple of years ago. Rape-culture activists have become a fixture on campuses throughout the country, and now, 55 colleges — including Harvard, Princeton, and Berkeley — are under federal investigation for mishandling sexual-assault complaints. Some of my conservative/libertarian sisters have pointed out that the statistics on sexual assault are wildly inflated. Christina Hoff Sommers notes that the “one in five women are victims of rape” statistic that the Centers for Disease Control popularized (and that...

    So who's being the sexist? Mika Brzezinski went ballistic on today's Morning Joe over Republicans like Rand Paul raising Monica Lewinsky in the context of a possible Hillary presidential run, calling them "sexist" and "misogynistic." But in the course of her rant, Mika mockingly referred to such Republicans as "little peanuts." Hmm. Did Mika need to use such suggestive, demeaning language in making her point? You have to view the video to get just how derisive was Mika with her "little peanut" line. View the video here.

But this isn’t the first time that Bashir has had to apologize for his remarks about a woman. While working for ABC News in the summer of 2008, he was addressing an Asian American Journalists Association convention in Chicago, with his “20/20” colleague Juju Chang also on stage. He began commenting on her dress. As New York magazine reported in a brief and little-noticed item, Bashir said that "I’m happy...

A news release stated the senior citizen was the "victim of continuous inappropriate sexual advances by the Mayor while trying to do her job at City Hall." Allred said the woman worked at the Senior Citizens Service Desk in the lobby of the City Administration Building. The release said both Allred and the great-grandmother would address the media at 1:00 p.m. at the Westin in downtown San Diego.

In less than a month, the number of victims and witnesses coming forward has skyrocketed from three to 13. And the details have grown even more unbelievably sordid. This isn't a local "sex scandal."

Filner was swept into office last year largely thanks to efforts by the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, which contributed more than $2 million as well as shoe leather, phone banks and related efforts to get the city’s first Democratic mayor in two decades into office.

As Filner is expected to enter a behavioral facility for two weeks of treatment many San Diegans continue to call for his resignation. Still, the mayor refuses to resign. “Shame would’ve driven him to resign immediately,” said La Jolla psychologist Dr. Sage Breslin.“I certainly think his bravado indicates he doesn’t have empathy or compassion.” She focused on Filner’s apology and called it insincere. “He was smiling when...

If a Republican gets caught in any type of compromising position, the left and the media go into a frenzy. Frankly, if a Republican is caught doing something wrong, such as cheating on their wife or sleeping with prostitutes, I believe they should be chastised and chucked out. However, what is good for...

    Any effort to reduce sexual harassment in the military needs to recognize that some men have never learned to adequately control their sex drives. Unfortunately, the military may need many of these men for their military related skills. Winning wars requires using men, and women, who don't always play well with others. Thus, the military may need to find a way to reduce sex assaults while keeping those who have trouble controlling their zippers. The military has some experience in this area because of personnel who occasionally "forget" who they are supposed to fight and who they are not supposed...

    The current sexual harassment scandal comes as no surprise to those of us who understand the danger of not teaching young males to control their sex drives. The first thing parents teach their children is to control their eating and sleeping cycles so they don't expect to eat in the middle of the night. The next thing parents teach their children is to control when and where they expel waste products so the children don't have to wear diapers. When I was young, the third thing parents taught their children was to control their sex drives. Unfortunately, a few decades...

The city council of Jacksonville, Florida, is considering passing an ordinance to outlaw “discrimination” on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, public accommodations, or housing. That means no employer, landlord, or owner of any facility open to the public may refuse to hire or rent their property to anyone who claims to be homosexual or transgender. The measure, supported by Councilman Warren Jones, also leaves employers vulnerable to...

    Texas Representative Ron Paul today stood by statements he made in his 1987 book arguing that someone who is a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace should bear some responsibility for resolving the problem and that society should not bear the burden of paying for the care of AIDS victims. In his 1987 book “Freedom Under Siege: The US Constitution after 200-Plus Years,” Paul wrote about sexual harassment in the workplace, “Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the...

    A Gastonia mother says her son was suspended for calling a teacher “cute.” Chiquita Lockett said her 9-year-old son, Emanyea, spent the last two days at home. Lockett said the principal of Brookside Elementary called her Wednesday to say the incident was a form of “sexual harassment.” Emanyea told Eyewitness News a substitute teacher overheard him tell another student a teacher was cute. Then he was suspended. “It’s not like he went up to the woman and tried to grab her or touch her in a sexual way,” Lockett said. “So why would he be suspended for two days?” A...

    In 1983, Eva Vachal, then 24 years old, was hired by Godfather’s Pizza... By 1986, when Herman Cain became president of the company, she was the corporate receptionist. For the next decade — Cain’s entire tenure at the Omaha-based firm — she continued in that position, answering phones and assisting executives with various projects. Vachal worked closely with Cain... She was close with other young women in the office, especially the assistants to Cain and the rest of the Godfather’s brass. They frequently huddled over lunch and coffee, discussing, among other things, their bosses, including the company’s gregarious chief executive....

    The Canadian Mounties will investigate the force's handling of sexual harassment claims, says the force's new commissioner, Bob Paulson. The probe comes after a high-profile female Mountie alleged constant harassment, including officers exposing themselves to her. Her public statement has led to additional allegations from current and former female Mounties. Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews also called for an investigation. "This is not about dealing with individual complaints but getting to the bottom of a system that seems to be failing members of the RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police]," Mr Toews told reporters. 'Cannot stand' Corporal Catherine Galliford, a...

    In her first televised interview ever, Gloria Cain, wife of Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain, sat down with her husband and said that the allegations of sexual harassment against him don’t square with the man she knows. “You hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that’s totally disrespectful of her as a woman,” she said, according to partial transcripts of an interview with Greta Van Susteren that will air on Fox News Monday night. “And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women.” Cain, who has been married for 43 years...

    Sexual Harassment Accusers: Not Automatic Saints Or Sinners Liberal feminist attorney, Gloria Allred held a press conference in which her female client made shocking graphic sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain. Sharon Bialek described a Herman Cain totally alien to the man I know. Think about this folks. Suppose someone came out of nowhere to make totally out-of-character sexual harassment allegations against your dad, pastor, husband or friend. You would give your dad, pastor, husband or friend the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. This is called loyalty and friendship. You would not go along with the politically correct...

    When not busy going after Herman Cain, the media bombards us nonstop with unwanted sexual inuendo, banter, and other forms of lasciviousness. Here we go again. A powerful, intelligent and charismatic conservative black man seeks high office in the United States of America, and is subject to the scurrilous slings and arrows that are always deflected from their liberal counterparts by the shields of the mainstream media. In our nation, where the election of Barack Obama might have signaled the end of endless claims of racism, the oldest stereotype of black men has once again reared its ugly head: it...

    The fatal blow to the campaign has been made. Whether he knows it or not, Herman Cain's campaign is over. I would be overjoyed to be wrong, but the numbers and believability of sexual harassment claims against him have amounted to the critical mass of complaints that end the Cain campaign. It is only a matter of time before everyone realizes it. Read more: http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/11/curtains_for_cain.html#ixzz1dTfrW7In
