Occidental College in Los Angeles is facing a law suit accusing the institution of having a history of handing out less than severe punishments to students found guilty of sexual assault, including one instance in which a man who was found guilt of a sexual assault was sentenced to writing a five-page book report. A second man was required to apologize to his victim and resign from campus leadership positions. Other students found guilty were expelled but allowed to re-enroll after their victim either left the school or graduated. Keep reading for details on the suit as well as video from the press conference with Gloria Allred and a number of the victims. There are also some rather startling statistics on campus rape — a nationwide epidemic that, despite numerous efforts and programs to raise awareness, has seen little to no decline over the last five decades.

Over the last few years I’ve probably written more about Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham than just about any one else on the planet, and yet it seems like every week (every day lately) she is still able to absolutely amaze me — though obviously not in a good way. The latest jaw-dropping entry in Farrah’s WTF resume is a video she just posted on Keek… while driving! With Sophia in the vehicle! After “driving like 13 hours non-stop!”
The comment Justin Bieber wrote in the guest book after touring the Anne Frank House stuck many, may people as insensitive.
In what can only be described as dumbidextrous, 19-year-old Dandre Moore was arrested in Mobile, Alabama earlier this month after he was stopped by police “double texting” while driving through the George Wallace Tunnel. (Yes, “double texting” means he was texting with two different cell phones in both hands at the same time — apparently steering the vehicle with his knees.) Adding insult to stupidity, police found a large amount of drugs, including marijuana, Xanax, and oxycodone, in the car. Oh, and did I mention there was a three-year-old child in the back seat?
Toy poodle puppies purchased at an Argentinian market were revealed to be ferrets, which were pumped with steroids and groomed. See what the faux-puppies looked like after the jump!
Rachel McAdams describes her experience taking a pot potion, which a grocer told her would help her sleep. Read how the plan hilariously backfired…
When one woman fell in love with a man she later learned was her half-brother, life began to sound like a Jerry Springer episode. But, for the woman and her family, the repercussions of the discovery were far from entertaining.
Apparently, being a Photoshop wiz can land you in the upper echelons of Silicon Valley — just not by following the path you might imagine. That was the case with Shirley Hornstein, who climbed her way onto a top-40 list of the most influential women investing in technology in Silicon Valley, by doing little more than dropping names and digitally altering photos.
Here’s further evidence that British music journalists think all female American alternative pop stars in their 30s with critically-acclaimed mid-1990s debut albums look alike. In the current issue of NME (New Musical Express) magazine there is a review for Fiona Apple’s new album The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords will Serve You more than Ropes will ever do (Yes, that is the album’s actual title) for which they used a large photo of Jagged Little Pill singer Alanis Morissette.
Let me start out by staying the child in this video reportedly suffered only minor injuries (miraculously) and is fine.
That being said, check out this early contender for 2012 Parental Fail of the Year as a laundromat security camera catches a dad placing his young child inside of an upright washing machine and closing the door as an apparent joke. Mom seems amused as she stands off to the side. But, panic sets in as the washing machine starts up and they are unable to open the door!
