Group wants to change male image

By PAMELA FRANKLIN
A newly-reinstituted group, Men
Against Rape Culture, wants to
change the male image and break
the gender stereotypes that en -
courage rape.
Men Against Rape Culture
(MARC) sponsors programs that
explore sex-roles and discussion
groups which discuss gender issues
and competition between males. Its
activities hope to create better
understanding among men, and bet -

ween men and women.
"It strives to form genuine
relationships in a supportive
environment between men, rather
than having competitiveness, which
is unusual for men because most
interaction between men is a
competitive nature," explained Dan
Bornstein, an LSA junior and group
member.
"In some ways it's like the
woman's movement in what we are
trying to accomplish, but it's very

different because as men we have to
give up power," said another
member who wished to be
unidentified.
The group hopes to change the
image of the male. Bornstein said,
"(Men) lack a full range of
emotions because we are taught to
be macho, cool, competitive, in
that type of environment you are
repressed or rejected... What our
group is saying is we want to dis -

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Battle continues in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Druse militiamen captured most of west
Beirut's commercial Hamra district during nightlong street-to-street
combat with Shiite Moslem fighters, police said yesterday.
They said 15 fighters were killed and 35 wounded as the battle for
control of Beirut's Moslem sector raged into a fifth day despite Syria's
threat to send troops with shoot-to-kill orders to quell the conflict.
That raised the overall toll since the fighting erupted Sunday to 80
killed and 315 wounded, by police count.
A focal point in the fighting was a seven-hour battle for the
Commodore Hotel off Hamra Street. It was stormed by grenade-
hurling Druse gunmen behind a massive barage of armor-piercing
rockets.
Soviets release dissidents
MOSCOW - Psychiatrist Anatoly Koryagin came home yesterday
after five years in a labor camp, and officials said Jewish activist Jose
Begun would be out of prison in 24 hours, nearly a week after his
release was first announced.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Geniuses Gerasimov reported the
releases at a news briefing. Koryagin, who had accused authorities of
putting sane dissidents in psychiatric hospitals, and Begun were
among the most prominent dissidents still held, but other well-known
activists remain in prisons or labor camps.
Begun, 55, was still at Chistopol Prison yesterday.
An Interior Ministry official telephoned Begun's wife Inna last
night and told her to go to the prison, 500 miles east of Moscow, for Y
her husband's release today.
Report criticizes human
rights trends around world
WASHINGTON - The State Department yesterday called the
police crackdown in South Africa the most troubling human rights
trend of 1986 and dismissed some of the Soviet Union's newly
proclaimed human rights moves as "only talk."
The department's annual report to Congress on human freedoms in
167 countries also criticzied South Korea, a close America ally, and
claimed an inability to determine whether the Central American
Contras were guilty of war crimes in their fight to overthrow the pro-
Soviet Nicaraguan government.
Like its predecessors, the 1,356-page human rights survey is a
detailed report card on the human condition in lands ranging from the
democracies of Western Europe to North Korea - which Assistant
Secretary of State Richard Schifter likened to the regime in George
Orwell's classic novel of repression, "1984."
Volunteers search for skiers
lost in avalanche in Rockies
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. - Two hundred volunteers joinedl 60
skilled mountaineers and dog teams yesterday on an avalanche-
gouged Rocky Mountain peak in the hunt for skiers missing in a
massive snow slide that killed at least one man.
Helicopters were sent to the peak before dawn yesterday to drop
explosives to release snow still hanging over the slope, Summit
County Sheriff Delbert Ewoldt then sent in the search teams.
Edwoldt said officials were not sure how many skiers were
missing, but "we have information for two for sure with possibily a
third."

EXTRAS
Raises make hubbies horny
NEW YORK - A pay raise or a promotion whets a man's appetite
for sex, and a demotion or dismissal curbs it, a seven-year study of
1,632 couples indicates.
Sex increased from 2.6 to 3.6 times a week when the man's career
status improved, but decreased to 1.2 times a week when there was a_
setback, according to a survey conducted by Srully Blotnick for a book,
"Ambitious Men: Their Drives and Delusions."
In a quarter of the cases where there was a setback, the couplet
refrained from sex for a week.
"Men who got a raise or a promotion said they felt like hot stuff for
the next few weeks," Blotnick said. "They wanted to share it, and it
comes out in an erotic form."
The good feeling occasioned by the raise "doesn't go on forever$
usually 10 days to two weeks," Blotnick said. "These men don't turn;
into sex maniacs."
The survey found that when women got good job news, they usually:
wanted to celebrate more socially, "by having a few friends over, or
going out to an expensive restaurant," Blotnick said. "Her idea of
celebrating wasn't to go home and ravish her husband."
