TN Judge (Magistrate, Actually) Suggests Corrective Rape For Lesbians In Military

Unfuckingbelievable.  This person needs to be put on suspension and submit to a psychological evaluation pronto.  If you want to read serious crazy from someone with some deep-seated issues, read the article at The Daily Caller (link in quote below).

But, first, read below for what the chicken-shits scrubbed from the article. From Raw Story:

The conservative news site The Daily Caller has removed part of an article that suggested lesbians be allowed into the US military so that their male colleagues can “convert” them.

Critics say the article went as far as to suggest corrective rape for lesbians.

“Lesbians should be allowed to serve, gay men should not,” declared Joe Rehyansky in an article published Monday. Rehyansky, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam, is a part-time magistrate in Hamilton County, Tennessee, and a former assistant district attorney.

In the original article, Rehyansky concluded that his lesbians-only policy “would get the distaff part of our homosexual population off our collective ‘Broke Back,’ thus giving straight male GIs a fair shot at converting lesbians and bringing them into the mainstream.

[…]

Mr. Rehyansky also described the “lascivious enjoyment” he imagines from watching the “lithe naked bodies” of male soldiers.  Very active imagination, this Mr. Rehyansky, but I hate to inform him that openly gay men and women who are committed to serving in our military have much more restraint, much more honor and sense of duty, than he’ll ever possess.  He goes on to say how most gay men have 500 – 3000 sex partners.  He knows this!

Most men who are sexually attracted to other men can and do indulge their promiscuous urges with little or no restraint; i.e., it’s “party time” all the time.

Except for, um, no we don’t, and no, it’s not “party time”, and this ignorant motherfucker is full of shit.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Rehyansky’s specialties are “sending criminals to prison” and “astute political analysis.”

[…]

He’d be well advised to delete the “astute” part of that description, for accuracy and honesty’s sake.  And, another thing, he is a “magistrate”, a bottom-level judge-wannabe with barely the legal skills to try parking tickets.  There’s probably good reason he’s so far down the chain.

UPDATE (related): I found this article about a study on the incidence of violence against women in South Africa, where the term “corrective rape” originated.  These statistics are almost matched by shameful statistics on rape in the U.S. military.  It is absolutely disgusting what is being suggested by the abominable “judge” Rehyansky.

UPDATE 2: A fucking kick-ass post from the blog Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men, “What the Fuck is Wrong With These People? – Joe Rehyansky Edition”

    As a South African lesbian who knows what “Corrective Rape” (which term was coined in SA) is, and who does advocacy work for Luleki Sizwe, (http://lulekisizwe.wordpress.com/) an NPO that assists, counsels, houses and fights for the rights of women who have undergone “Corrective Rape”, (some of them being beaten up, others murdered; some who have either died from contracting AIDS as a result of the rape, or have committed suicide because they could not live with what happened), I would dearly love to get my hands on the so-called judge and show him a thing or two!

    Rehyansky you are a sick puppy who needs to be put down!!

    Please, people, go to this link http://www.petitions24.com/stop_corrective_rape and sign my petition so that we can get “corrective Rape” declared a hate-crime.
    Thank you,

      Hi Billi,
      Thank you for posting that. SA is where I heard about ‘corrective’ rape.
      I cannot imagine the horrors you and your sisters have endured. I cannot comprehend the minds of men who justify it.
      I found this article on a study of violence against women in SA:

      A 2010 study led by the government-funded Medical Research Foundation says that in Gauteng province, home to South Africa’s most populous city of Johannesburg, more than 37 percent of men said they had raped a woman. Nearly 7 percent of the 487 men surveyed said they had participated in a gang rape.

      More than 51 percent of the 511 women interviewed said they’d experienced violence from men, and 78 percent of men said they’d committed violence against women.

      A quarter of the women interviewed said they’d been raped, but the study says only one in 25 rapes are reported to police.

      A survey by the same organization in 2008 found that 28 percent of men in Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces said they had raped a woman or girl. Of the men who had committed rape, one third did not feel guilty, said Rachel Jewkes, a lead researcher on both studies.

      Two-thirds of the men surveyed in that study said they raped because of a sense of sexual entitlement. Other popular motivating factors included a desire to punish women who rejected or angered them, and raping out of boredom, Jewkes said.

      “Rape is completely trivialized by a great number of men. It is seen as a legitimate activity,” she said.

        Hi Tom,

        Thank you for your kind words.

        Yes, unfortunately the article you refer to is basically true – in general, human life has very little value to a huge percent of our population, females even less and even though we have one of the most modern constitutions, much of it is not worth the paper it is written on, because homosexuals and lesbians have a really tough time of it.. the scourge of “corrective-rape” is rife, especially although not only, in the “townships”.

        Unfortunately the African Culture is one of Patriarchy and entitlement!

    I did try to engage with Joseph Rehyansky , but didn’t get very much out of him:
    http://dailycaller.com/2010/11/22/dont-hint-dont-wink-an-immodest-proposal/comment-page-4/#comments

    have started a global petition for a letter to the SA Govt
    http://www.change.org/petitions/view/call_to_the_south_african_government_to_declare_corrective_rape_a_hate-crime

    Please support and spread, TA ;}

    Namaste

      Wow. I read his “clever retorts” to you and other commenters over there. What an ASS! What a goddamned ASSHOLE!

      I barely know how to respond to such idiocy. Well, OK, I might have a couple of ideas to “set him straight”. This “man” has zero capacity for introspection or self-awareness.

      I’ve known many gay men and women who have served in our military. My partner served proudly in the 70’s as an aircraft mechanic in the USAF; he went on to become a prison guard, and then had a 25-year career as one of the top parole and probation officers in the state.

      In honor of my partner and friends who have served their country and their communities: GO FUCK YOURSELF, JOE REHYANSKY.

      Billi, I just found this excellent post from a hetero female Navy veteran: What the Fuck is Wrong With These People? – Joe Rehyansky Edition

    Hi Tom,

    Yeah, he is a bit of a prick, isn’t he?

    Thanks for the link, will go and check it out now.

    Thank goodness that at least there are people like you in the world, and that makes idiots like JOE REHYANSKY stan out for what they are, out and out bigots!

    Stay well, my friend
    Billi

  5. Thanks for the shout out, Tom. And I love that you call your blog “Reality Bong.”
