The Lipster is an excellent new(ish) site which is aimed at women who like music - funnily enough there aren't that many female-oriented music sites out there - & it is very good.
I just read an article on there that made my jaw drop to the floor!
It goes a little something like this > > >
"BNP in 'rape not so bad' row

If you thought the BNP just hated foreigners, then you'd be wrong - they hate women too. The scribe behind a far right blog called Sir John Bull (it's still up, but we're not linking to it) who in 2005 wrote such hate-mongering trash such as the below, has been outed, and not before time:
"I've never understood why so many men have allowed themselves to be brainwashed by the feminazi myth machine into believing that rape is such a serious crime ... Rape is simply sex. Women enjoy sex, so rape cannot be such a terrible physical ordeal."
"To suggest that rape, when conducted without violence, is a serious crime is like suggesting that forcefeeding a woman chocolate cake is a heinous offence. A woman would be more inconvenienced by having her handbag snatched."
"The demonisation of rape is all part of the feminazi desire to obtain power and mastery over men. Men who go along with the rape myth are either morons or traitors."
He also described working women as "unnatural and vile... it is a strange kind of woman who would want to invest [her] energies into her job rather than into a man."
Now pick your jaws back up off the floor, and we'll continue. The Standard did a bit of digging and found out that the blog was the work of one Nick Eriksen, a man who, until a few hours ago, was the second highest on the BNP's list for the London Assembly. Unfortunately for him, even the BNP thought it was a bit much, and removed him from their list of candidates.
Eriksen had by this point responded to the Standard, saying he was being "deliberately proactive". He then managed to dig his grave deeper, by say he wanted to point out "that there are two kinds of rape. There is stranger rape and there is so-called rape by somebody the woman knows."
You, Erikson, are a major league pillock."
