Sade_DonatienThe Marquis de Sade

?Sex, Sacrilege and Sublimity

Marquis de Sade was a French aristocrat and philosopher who became notorious for acts of sexual cruelty in his writings as well as in his own life

Warning – This Story May Be Disturbing and Offensive to Some People.

?Either kill me or take me like this, for I will not change,? wrote the imprisoned Marquis de Sade to his wife in 1783. It could only be one or the other for the most extreme author of the 18th Century. Sade, an unstoppable libertine, was in the middle of what would be an 11-year prison sentence, but he would not recant his principles or his tastes to get out of jail. Any diversion from his true nature was, for the marquis, equivalent to death.

Marquis de Sade, a French aristocrat, philosopher and writer of explicit sexual works, was born in Paris in 1740. His writings depict violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. During the French Revolution he was an elected delegate to the National Convention. The last years of his life were spent in an insane asylum. He died in 1814.

Donatien Alphonse Fran?ois, best known as Marquis de Sade, was born in Paris, France on June 2, 1740. His father was a diplomat in the court of Louis XV, and his mother was a lady-in-waiting. From the start, de Sade was raised with servants who flattered his every whim.

By the age of 4, de Sade was known as a rebellious and spoiled child with an ever-growing temper. He once beat the French prince so severely that he was sent to the south of France to stay with his uncle, an abbot of the church. During his stay, while he was 6 years old, his uncle introduced him to debauchery. Four years later, de Sade was sent back to Paris to attend the Lyc?e Louis-le-Grand. After misbehaving in school, he was subject to severe corporal punishment, namely flagellation. He spent the rest of his adult life obsessed with the violent act.

Horror House

Pervert?Josef?Fritzl kept his daughter locked up in the notorious ‘House of Horror’ establishment for 24 years, where he repeatedly raped her in a story that shocked the world.

Now the former home, in Amstetten, Austria, will now reportedly accommodate up to 50 asylum seekers after local council officials failed to find a buyer. The house has been up for sale for some time, priced at ?200,000 (?145,000) but it has remained empty since the atrocity was uncovered.

To ensure it did not become a sick tourist attraction, the cellar where Elisabeth and the children were held hostage has been filled with concrete.

Elisabeth now lives in a brightly painted house in a tiny hamlet which the Austrian media, when they mention it at all, refer to as “Village X”. The two-storey family home is kept under constant CCTV surveillance, and any strangers caught lurking nearby can expect to be picked up by the police within minutes.

The concern about security, above all the fear of an all-pervasive, ruthlessly prying media does not end there. In addition to security guards, the citizens of “Village X” have formed a sort of Dad’s Army to keep journalists and other sensation seekers at bay. “There are only a few villagers and they are all in with the police,” recalled a photographer who was unfortunate enough to be sent on a mission to “Village X”. “I was quickly surrounded by people who told me: they don’t want to talk to you, they don’t want to see you ? please get out of here,” he said.

Muslim Woman’s Video goes Viral

I follow a facebook page called Ex Muslims of North America because no one understands Islam better than someone who has been Muslim. The woman in this video who grew up as a Muslim in the Middle East understands exactly what Jihad is. The video was posted on the ‘Silence is Consent’ facebook page. In the video this woman is doing exactly what all we critics keep condemning Muslims for not doing. She is speaking out against terrorism. Not only that, she is telling us that there is a link between terrorism and Islam. So who are you going to believe, a Muslim from the Middle East or Susan Devoy?

Hey Barry Kirker, electronic monitoring is working fine, is it?

Clinical psychologist Barry Kirker doesn’t want a sex offender’s register. ? One of the reasons stated is

Mr Kirker said the register would do nothing to protect against those at high risk of offending because they are already monitored.

He might want to add this story to the recent one of the child sex offender cutting off his ankle bracelet and going on the run.

The man at the centre of an Armed Offenders Squad callout in Timaru this morning had been on the run since he removed his ankle bracelet in May.

The Area Commander for mid-South Canterbury, David Gaskin, said Clinton Benjamin Simon was on bail and failed to appear in the Christchurch District Court in July.
Mr Gaskin said Simon was affiliated with the Mongrel Mob gang and proved difficult to track down after police were alerted to the fact that his ankle bracelet had been removed on 29 May. Read more »

Oh boo-hoo

A psychologist who works with child sex offenders is warning a proposed register may deter sexual abusers from seeking help.

Seriously, I don’t think too many people would care.

Under the bill introduced by the government this week, all child sex offenders will have to go on the register, including those who committed offences abroad.

Social Development Minister Anne Tolley, who is in charge of the bill, says the register will not be publicly available but in certain cases information may be released to a parent, guardian, teacher or caregiver.

But clinical psychologist Barry Kirker says the bill may actually have prevent offenders seeking treatment or deter victims from reporting abuse.

Barry, I?wish you had more concern for the victims and potential future victims. ?There is absolutely NOTHING that stops offenders from seeking help, getting better and re-integrating. ? It is time we push the pendulum back to protecting those that are hurt, and those that are weak and innocent. ?The precious children, their fragile souls. ? Read more »

UPDATED: Face of the day


Asha* and her daughter in the garden in southern India. She is determined not to give in. ARUN JANARDHAN/Indian Express

Today’s face of the day Asha* cannot show her face. She has no status in Indian society without a husband and like another case from 2008 she has been told to marry her rapist under the misogynistic, Islamic law of Sharia. * UPDATE: I assumed this, I cannot confirm that this case was tried under Islamic law like the other case mentioned in the article.


Three words, no rape victim ever wants to hear, have thrown a young woman in a remote part of India into turmoil.

Having tried to put the rape of 2008 behind her and to get on with raising the little girl born nine months later, 21-year-old Asha* has been troubled by memories and disturbed by the judge’s shocking suggestion: marry your rapist.

“When the judge took his pen and wrote this, did he think even once of my plight?”, she asked an Indian Express journalist in a video interview in the garden of her one-room home.

The judge in question, Justice P Devadas of the Madras High Court, has been hearing the bail appeal of V Mohan, the man convicted of raping Asha. On June 23 he agreed to the bail request on condition that Mohan try “mediation” with Asha. Mediation in a rape case is aimed at marriage.

Throw away the key

Caution ?- ?the material in this article deals with child rape.?

I thought long and hard about drawing attention to this. ?But in the end, I think it is important we know what goes on in our communities

A ”high-risk” Timaru paedophile who recorded himself raping three young girls has been sentenced to 18 years in jail.

Phillip Brendon Page, 36, was sentenced in the High Court at Timaru today on 26 child sex charges by Justice Rachel Dunningham, who imposed a minimum non-parole period of 10 years.

The 26 charges Page had admitted included five of sexual violation by rape, six of sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection, 11 of doing an indecent act on a child, two of doing an indecent act on a young person, and two of doing an indecent act with intent to insult or offend.

When he pleaded guilty in the High Court at Christchurch last year, the Crown said the offending involved four girls and two boys and took place over several years.

He began encouraging and instructing a girl aged five or six to expose herself so that he could take pictures. Police found 151 photographs and 11 videos on a compact disc.

He photographed himself raping the girl while she appeared to be sleeping, and took two photographs of another rape.

Makes arguing over a few stolen emails and a tawdry book seem rather irrelevant. ? Read more »

Beast back in his box

The Beast of Blenheim has been put back in his box after losing his appeal against his recall to prison.

Hopefully that will be the last we see of him.

Convicted sex offender Stewart Murray Wilson boasted to a vulnerable women he was banned from contacting that he could cut off his monitoring bracelet and flee to Australia with her.

The man dubbed the ‘Beast of Blenheim’ was recalled to prison in February after breaching his parole conditions by phoning a woman he was barred from speaking to under his strict release conditions.

The four-minute call in which Murray made the claims was uncovered by community probation officers and ultimately led to the sex predator’s recall to prison.? Read more »

Diddums, get lost

Mike Tyson is having a big cry and reckons it isn’t fair he got the arse card. Well boo-fucking-hoo to him.

Three days after he was banned from New Zealand, Mike Tyson criticised the decision to revoke his visa because of his rape conviction.

The former heavyweight champion was to travel to Auckland in November before authorities on Wednesday denied him entry. Tyson had been hoping to perform his one-man show called “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.”

“I just wanted to go down there and just have a show,” Tyson said. “Unfortunately that had to happen. It’s one of those things in life that happens. It’s life on life’s terms and everyone has to deal with that and those uncertainties.”

Tyson had wanted to meet New Zealand’s indigenous Maori people, the inspiration for his prominent facial tattoo.

“The people wanted me to come,” he said. “If it was a fair organisation, a fair fight I would be there but I got vetoed by the higher power.”


Dry your Eyes, Rapist


The Beast of Blenheim has had a wee cry in prison…well..boo-fricken-hoo:

He was the beast who cried.

Voice quavering, the man dubbed the Beast of Blenheim has spoken emotionally of the unfairness he has endured during what he called a “long stretch”.

Convicted in 1996 of 19 offences, including raping five females and bestiality, Stewart Murray Wilson, is said to still pose a high risk of reoffending sexually. Wilson has denied his crimes and has five times challenged decisions not to release him earlier.

A prison officer passed him tissues as Wilson, 65, made what could be his last bid for freedom ahead of his planned September 1 release.

Speaking via a video link to the High Court at Wellington this morning, Wilson complained – not for the first time – that he had been denied any treatment since being sentenced in 1996 to 21 years’ jail.

He said he had been denied one-on-one counselling, without being interviewed, because he would not say he was guilty “to please them”.

“I am having to accept the blame for not being open to change or consideration to be worked with because this is a determination that the psychologists have made.”

Over the years he had asked for one-on-one counselling but been refused and had that been different “we may not be here today”, Wilson told Justice David Collins.

“I am not given any credit for anything, I’m getting older and I’m getting wiser and I am a lot slower than I used to be.”
