STATE AIMS TO CLOSE RAPE LAW LOOPHOLE U-T San Diego Sacramento — The state Senate unanimously approved a bill on Thursday that would close a loophole in California law that resulted in a rape conviction being overturned because the woman was not married.

The 2nd District Court of Appeal in January reversed the conviction of Julio Morales for impersonating the boyfriend of the woman. The court ruled that a state law dating to the 1870s specifies that assailants are guilty in such cases only if a woman is married and the perpetrator is pretending to be the spouse.

Controversial men’s rights group fundraising for a Centre for Men …Toronto Star …McPhee is one of a small but swelling group who believe men have become the new underclass. He hopes to open a mancave that will serve as a refuge for his downtrodden brethren. The Canadian Association for Equality, a men’s rights group of which he is a board member, has launched a campaign to establish the first “Centre for Men and Families” in Toronto.

But some gender equity advocates oppose the opening of the venue, fearing it will help CAFE propagate what they view as a misogynist and anti-feminist agenda.

The volunteer group aims to raise $50,000 by the end of August for a facility to address what they see as a wide-ranging crisis facing males. They’ve brought in over $20,000 thus far.
