Main / 12 year old girl kills sister
Feb 17, 2005, 09:06 AM

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 15 -- A 12-year-old girl has been charged with murder after she told police she strangled her 9-year-old sister in a fight over a hamburger, officials said Tuesday.
      The St. Louis Medical Examiner's office said it ruled the death of the younger girl a homicide weeks after her body was found in her home on Dec. 22.

Authorities were unable to determine how she died until the 12-year-old said she killed her younger sister in a spat over a hamburger, investigators said. She made the admission during a conversation with a case worker at a hospital where she was being treated for psychiatric problems.
      The Medical Examiner's office said it made the ruling given the girl's statement and the fact that the younger girl's injuries were consistent with strangulation. Police charged the girl on Monday.
      The names of the girls were not released, and a court hearing will be held later to determine if the 12-year-old should be tried as as adult.

Main / The newest on the LeTourneau case
Feb 14, 2005, 06:10 PM
POSTED: 6:47 am EST February 14, 2005

SEATTLE -- Mary Kay LeTourneau and her former sixth-grade pupil, Vili Fualaau, with whom she had two children, have set the date for their wedding, according to an online bridal registry.

LeTourneau, 43, and Fualaau, 22, plan to wed April 16, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported Monday. LeTourneau served 7 1/2 years on a 1997 conviction for raping Fualaau.

"It's been long overdue," said Noel Soriano, a longtime friend of the family who confirmed Sunday that they will marry this spring. "It's going to be fabulous, seeing them get hitched finally."

LeTourneau was a married mother of four when she began a sexual relationship with the then-12-year-old Fualaau after meeting at Burien's Shorewood Elementary School in 1996, when she was 34. She was pregnant with Fualaau's first child when she was arrested in 1997 and ordered to serve a six-month sentence for second-degree child rape.

One month after she was released, LeTourneau was caught having sex with Fualaau in her car. She pleaded guilty in 1997 to two charges of child rape, and gave birth to the couple's second daughter while serving her 7 1/2-year sentence. Fualaau's mother is raising their two daughters, aged 6 and 7.

Shortly after LeTourneau was released from prison last August, the pair successfully petitioned a King County judge to lift a no-contact order that had barred them from seeing each other.

Soriano said they became engaged when Fualaau proposed last fall, but they have been trying to keep wedding details a secret. But with a guest list that will include more than 200 people, the news was bound to come out eventually, he said.

The wedding will likely be held in a Seattle-area church, Soriano said. Details are yet to be completed, but plans call for their daughters to be flower girls and Fualaau's nephew to be a ring bearer, he said.

The couple's bridal registry at the Bon-Macy's listed 31 items Sunday.

Neither LeTourneau nor Fualaau could be reached for comment Sunday.

LeTourneau now lives with friends in the Boulevard Park neighborhood south of Seattle. Fualaau is unemployed but has been studying for his GED and working on his artwork. He's also been meeting with gallery owners to discuss the possibility of exhibiting some of his work, Soriano said.

The couple will likely live in the Seattle area after they wed, he said.

Here is a comment from the board I am on.

Well, he is an adult, so no one can force them not to marry. Still, the whole situation is very disturbing. This man has never had the chance to be a normal teenager. I feel sorry for him, but more so for the 2 little girls who will have to carry around the stigma of their parents' relationship.


They just cannot see the hypocracy in this statement.

Main / a recent expirience
Feb 09, 2005, 12:22 PM
I have been going to a ladies forum for the last month. Within two weeks I was made moderator of the controvery corner!

Most of these women are just everyday people, a few feminists, a few religious nuts, but most of them in the middle.

Well, Someone brought up the one in four myth. SO I started a thread, put out the data about how that came to be, including the reports, the methodology, and the manipulation of data.

I then made a statement which said while I understand how difficult the topic is, it must be discussed as funding is being misallocated and many women are not getting treatment because if it.

I have never had a thread that hijacked. They all had to tell me about their rapes, or their friends rapes, or their friends near rapes. I was called a woman hater, callous, cruel, and was told that they apologized on my behalf to all rape victims.

Good grief. No matter what I said they would not stay on topic. It became "it is good to have healing and closure" "It is good they can talk about it" "so what if it becomes subjective"  Not one person actually debated what I said.

ACK!

Women can be so damn emotional. God forbid they actually put aside their expirience and discuss something rationally.

I know know how frustrating it was when I used to do that. Put in my own personal expirience then expect everyone to tread lightly and agree.

BAH!

I will keep plugging away, I have gotten a few people to start thinking on things, but rape is like a red flag to a bull. I think I will just stay away from that topic  for a while. They sure know how to shut a person up.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Main / statistics
Dec 13, 2004, 11:38 AM
I am looking for the stats on divorce and custody for NY state and the US as a whole. I have found some things, but I know there are a few guys out there who have the whole list, with references, at hand. If one of you is readying this, could you please help me out. I am looking for percentage of custody awards by sex, what percentage mothers get sole custody,  child support, step families, etc. I have some info from the US Census bureau, but it will take me days to wade through all the stuff I can't use. Thanks, Jen

Main / Commission on Marital Issues
Nov 05, 2004, 12:01 PM
Well, yesterday I spent the entire day going to the commission on marital issues in Albany NY. It was phenominal. I drove out with another fathers rights activist from Syracuse who's trial we attended last year. We got to albany around 11, and were able to stay until 4.

The commission was hearing from groups concerning all aspects of marriage, divorce, and child custody and support issues. There were about 20 of us that showed up, from as far away as Mass. and western NY. The heads of the Berkshire Fatherhood Coalition and the Fathers and Families were there as well as several other groups. We had several speakers, and then 4 other speakers who didn't know about us spoke with the same ideas in mind. They are planning on joining our groups.

While there was a spokes woman from a DV group, and two women from 'abusive relationships' who favored no boundries on their actions, the vast majority of speakers were pro family, pro fatherhood, It was also thrilling when the DV rep stated the old "70% of fathers who sue for custody won" and the chairwomen stopped her and asked for her source. I started clapping and everyone joined in, to see this judge not just take this feminists lies hook, line and sinker was refreshing.

It was absolutely heartbreaking listening to these men's stories about their children being ripped from their arms and the state raping their wallets. You have no clue until you look these men in the eyes, shake their hands, and hear their stories.

I implore you all to get out there and start meeting each other. I think that the meeting in DC is a great start, as well as other commissions like these. There are 4 more, so I will post the dates and such when I find them out. We have been letter writing and publishing articles, which is also very important  Making these issues cross over into real life, making the activism cross over, is vital for us to get the the next level.

I know some of you have been actively doing things off line.  Please list your activities to inspire the rest of us to get moving.

I think that once we start moving, it will be contagious.  Look at Fathers4Justice, they are world known now. While not all of us can climb a crane in a Super heroes outfit, we can get visable, get out there, and meeting each other helps us feel like we are not so all alone.

Main / Home schooling dads jailed in Germany

The state must control the education of children if it is to control the population. Homeschooling is the enemy of radical feminism. Kudos to these families who stood with their convictions.

Also note it was the fathers jailed, not the mothers.

Main / Apology
Oct 29, 2004, 06:15 AM
I want to apologize to everyone. I have been going through some pretty traumatic stuff at home, and I have taken it out on the board.

I have had Jack, my dal whippet mix dog, for 7 years. Together we have traveled from CA to NY to Toronto to SC, performing in front of thousands of people and titling in 4 sports. He has helped me build up a career in dog training and teaching at camps, and has been pretty much my constant companion. It took me 26 years to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up, I had no clue until I fell into training this dog that it would become my passion.

Saturday, he was left out on accident by a door getting left open. While we were gone he bit a child coming up the driveway. I was looking at having to re-home him, lose my business, and end my passion in training and showing dogs. I have been devistated, as my entire life has been wrapped up in the dog sport world for 6 years. We also had the possibility of a law suit which could cause us to lose everything.

It turns out that I located the boy and his parents are willing to let me work with him and my dog, so I do not have to lose Jack. However, for several days I honestly thought my dog was gone, my career over, and possibly worse.  

I should not have taken it out on Typhon and Daks and everyone else. I apologize. While I still do not agree with Typhon, I should have just stated my opinion and walked away, or ignored her posts altogether. I was snide and snippy and I have no excuse for it.

I had come here to try and take my mind away from it, and I just made things worse.

Introductions / The Queen has arrived...
Oct 06, 2004, 06:00 AM
Well, the Biscuit Queen anyways, no you don't have to bow or anything.  8)

I am coming from another board where I just got tired of the negativity, and what a breath of fresh air this is! I was so relieved to see a moderator gently remind someone not to make broad (pardon the pun)sweeping statements about another group.

LSBeene, HI! I've missed ya!  So this is where you've been hiding!

Anyways, I am 33, married to another activist, we have 2 kids, boys 8 and 13 (b-days this month) , 3 dogs and a housefull of little critters. I am a dog trainer in sports and stay at home with the kids the rest of the time.

I have been active for almost 2 years with the men's issues. I was very defensive at first, and thought it was BS, but have been lured to the dark side and am now thoroughly evil-oh wait I meant masculist.  I am pretty moderate to conservative, so I don't think I will cause too much chaos here.  I am probably the only person who understood Devia's comments under Typhonblue, and agreed with them. Umm, and I guess that is about it.
