Harvard cancels men’s soccer season after a nine-page document discovered, objectifying freshmen recruits from the women’s soccer team. Men on the team referred to the document as a “scouting report” and gave the women numeric “scores,” assigned them sexual positions, and provided pornified descriptions of the women.

According to a new report, men don’t actually enjoy the hyper masculine traditions often associated with stag parties. Rather, they “succumb to peer pressure” to celebrate by going to strip clubs, degrading women, and humiliating one another.

Todd Kohlhepp, 45, arrested after authorities found a woman chained on his property in rural South Carolina. She had been missing since late August, along with her boyfriend. Kohlhepp served time during his 20s for the rape of a 14-year-old girl in Arizona when he was 15.

A 14-year-old boy repeatedly raped his younger sister when he was 12, after becoming fascinated with incest pornography. He has pleaded guilty to six counts of rape.

A new line of “sex robots” will hit the market at $15,000 a piece.
