Here in Iowa City, life is never dull. And by now, everyone knows Iowa City’s reputation as a socially progressive center where common stereotypes, such as traditional gender roles, can be nonexistent or even, on occasion, reversed. In fact, even the rare crime committed in Iowa City can exhibit characteristics that defy traditional stereotypes.
Take for instance a local Iowa City woman, Melissa B. Minarsich, 28, who assaulted her boyfriend because he refused to have sex with her. You read that correctly: She beat him for not having sex with her. It’s like Fresno’s Bizarro World.
At least her explanation to the police following her arrest was refreshingly honest and straightforward:
“All I want is a piece of ass, is that too much to ask for?
Apparently yes, a “piece of ass” is too much to ask for if you assault someone when it is refused.
