Early this month, the Police Service of Northern Ireland deleted a tweet warning people that a kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas is “rape” after being brutally mocked for it.
“If you bump into that special someone under the mistletoe tonight, remember that without consent it is rape #SeasonsGreetings,” the police force tweeted to their 159,000 followers.

Immediately, Twitter users sprang into action to blast the force for trivializing something as serious as rape by comparing it to the silly holiday tradition — including James Dalton, who had ran as a UKIP parliamentary candidate in the 2017 general election.
“Perhaps a refresher course on the definition of ‘rape’ wouldn’t go amiss? An embarrassing tweet which trivialises a thoroughly despicable crime,” Dalton responded.

Others responded to Dalton by laughing that they thought the PSNI account was a parody when they first saw their tweet.

After the force deleted the misguided tweet they posted a follow up message — pretty much doubling down on their original claim.
“We posted a message on Twitter yesterday that some may have taken out of context but the message remains the same; when you are out socialising over the Christmas period, please remember without consent it is rape,” the new tweet read.
The tweet was reportedly part of the force’s “without consent” campaign that they launched in 2013, which aims to educate the public on the need for affirmative consent.
“So, British police say ‘bumping’ someone is ‘rape’. Meanwhile, there is silence on Rotherham, where hundreds of young girls faced years of genuine abuse. Special interest groups have ruined our police force,” MGBA News wrote of the tweet.

Planned Parenthood Announces New ‘Freedom to F*ck’ Campaign
abortion factory family planning organization Planned Parenthood has launched a new campaign encouraging promiscuity among young people.
“‘Freedom to F—’ is meant to speak to a younger generation more empowered than ever and hopefully willing to help,” said Gerard Caputo, COO of the ad company contracted to create the campaign. “It all starts with the courage to do something different and we believe we have already succeeded.”
The campaign even has its own website.
“New Yorkers have more sex than anyone else in America. (Woo! We did it!),” it says. “Planned Parenthood of New York City is here to make sure that everyone has access to the sexual and reproductive health care services they need.”
Planned Parenthood’s warped idea of “family planning” apparently includes having as much sex with as many partners as possible. In fact, they aren’t encouraging families or planning. They are really telling young people that unprotected sex has no consequences, because Planned Parenthood will always be there to bail them out with an abortion in the worst case scenario.
But that does not stop the radically leftist group from the pushing the same old lie about “providing healthcare.”
“In 2017, we provided services to nearly 60,000 New Yorkers, regardless of income, documentation status, gender identity, or sexual orientation — because we all deserve health care,” the site says.
According to the site, donations to the new campaign will be used to provide “abortion services, sex education on consent, LGBTQ healthy relationships, and healthy relationships.”
Is Planned Parenthood about “reproductive health,” or simply debasing society?
