Oklahoma man charged with 'atomic wedgie' murder of stepfather

(Reuters) - A 33-year-old Oklahoma man has been charged with killing his stepfather by giving him an "atomic wedgie," that caused the victim to suffocate on his own underwear.

Brad Lee Davis was charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Denver St. Clair in a drunken family fight at a residence just east of Oklahoma City, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office said in an arrest affidavit obtained on Wednesday.

Police arrested Davis on Tuesday. The affidavit said he "grabbed St. Clair's underwear and gave him an 'atomic wedgie.' Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck."

Oklahoma Medical Examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliott said the cause of death was asphyxiation and blunt force trauma.

Whatever the beverage choice

There sure are some testy women who turn up in weird news. Despite my reputation as a man-hating feminazi, I have never once attacked a man with a ceramic squirrel or stabbed anyone over a color scheme at a wedding. I don't know what the fuss is all about.

Is DU somehow immune to rape culture?

So when all those guys come into threads to insist that the accused rapist is innocent and the victim a liar, that's a figment of my imagination. When they insist women should dress appropriately, not drink, and not go out after dark if they don't want to be raped, that has absolutely nothing to do with rape culture. When they insist that rape prevention PSAs that mention the word men, once, are "misandrist" and the only acceptable rape prevention campaigns are those that seek to control women's behavior, that's not rape culture. "When they misrepresent the facts to insist false allegations of rape are commonplace, that isn't rape culture. When they insist rape isn't really a problem because it's prevalence in the population has declined with other violent crimes, that isn't rape culture. When someone says that a rape victim who had the nerve to report her rapist to police should get what's coming to her, that's not rape culture. When men insist women shut up about rape and domestic violence because the posts are illegitimate if they aren't about male victims, that isn't rape culture.

Only it is. Rape culture defined: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_culture

No one need apologize for being male. Nor is being male an excuse for denying the existence of something as obvious as rape culture because frankly most men are not that out of it. One might like certain individuals to consider that lives besides their own have some value, but then some people are simply not predisposed to care about anyone who isn't exactly like them. I however know what I'm dealing with, so I expect exactly nothing. I don't seek an apology. I am instead eternally grateful I do not have to encounter them in my real life.
