I was horrified this morning...
…when I saw so many people blaming a girl who drank so much that she passed out and was raped multiple times after when I commented on the story on my facebook page this morning.
I had to issue this statement that I think should really be taken to heart:
Im super disappointed in so many of you slut shaming a girl who was sexually assaulted when she was passed out drunk.
Its not as some of you put it “Blaming the sharks when a person jumps into a shark tank”. The only way that is true is if ALL MEN RAPE WOMEN ALWAYS. How dare a girl who thought that she was surrounded by friends who would protect her drink alcohol.
Reevaluate your views on life. Too many people blame the victims. I hope nothing like this ever happens to you, your daughter, your sister, your friends and you dont have to learn that the hard way.
If she cant say yes, thats a no.
- Ignorant Person: You were raped? Did you flirt with him?
- Victim: Is flirting a crime?
- Ignorant Person: Well did you kiss him?
- Victim: Is kissing a crime?
- Ignorant Person: What were you wearing?
- Victim: Is my choice of clothing a crime?
- Ignorant Person: Well you're kind of known for being "easy"....
- Victim: Is having consensual sex a crime?
- Ignorant Person: Well then what did you do to bring that onto yourself?
- Victim: People like you exist, allowing rape (a CRIME) to be seen as the victim's fault and not the rapist's pathetic lack of self control.
Rape is NOT fucking funny.
If you ever joke about it, about raping a girl so hard she dies, you’re a fucking sick prick and you deserve every thing you get.
Laughing about raping a girl and then BRAGGING that you think she’s dead, its sick.
I can’t even begin to tell you how bad that makes me want to go see those fucking dead beats and beat the living shit out of them
It is amazing to me how we can live in this modern age of “acceptance” and “tolerance,” and yet there are still thousands of people who blame women for rape. The fact that anyone could feel /sorry/ for a RAPIST regardless of age mystifies me. A RAPIST is not a good person. A RAPIST is a RAPIST. They take advantage of someone- expose them, humiliate them, abuse them, scar them. It doesn’t matter if the rapist is 16 or 46, they still broke the law. Age doesn’t make someone any less of a person, and therefore it doesn’t make someone any less of a law-breaker. If you’re going to be disgusting enough to do an adult crime, then you can suck it up and do the adult fucking time. No, I don’t feel bad that two 16 year old boys have to register as sex offenders. Why? Because they are. They RAPED a drunk girl who wasn’t even clear-headed enough to say no. That is rape. AND, they were immature enough to joke about it ONLINE and laugh about it by making disgusting jokes while the girl laid outside with PISS ALL OVER HER BODY. That isn’t alcohol or drugs. That is cold, cruel rape. And it would be best for everyone to grow up and realize that. It’s not a joke. It’s not funny. You know what it is? It’s sad. It’s sad and embarrassing and pathetic that this is even an issue. Rapists are the problem. Not women. And age doesn’t make a goddamn difference when rape is the issue.
Hey guess what fuckers
you don’t want your futures destroyed and your lives ruined?
DON’T. FUCKING. COMMIT. A CRIME.
LIKE RAPING PEOPLE.
GODDAMNIT I HATE EVERYONE WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH MEDIA AND THE WORLD AUGH.
WHY WOULD ANYONE SYMPATHIZE WITH FUCKING CRIMINALS WHO ASSAULTED A GIRL
I DON’T GIVE A FUCK THAT THEY WERE GOOD STUDENTS AND GOOD ATHLETES THEY ARE SHITTY HUMAN BEINGS AND THEIR LIVES DESERVE TO BE RUINED FOREVER
wow how terrible to live with that omg poor babies
you know what else is terrible
BEING FUCKIGN RAPED BY PATHETIC EXCUSES FOR HUMAN BEINGS AND THEN FUCKING CNN MAKING THEM THE VICTIMS AUGH
let me just say that i hope those worthless, disgusting pieces of trash are thrown in prison for the rest of their lives and i hope they’re ruthlessly violated, humiliated and tortured every single day.
the fact that ANYBODY involved in that rape scandal is still walking free makes me PHYSICALLY SICK TO MY STOMACH.
if they wont get thrown in prison, i hope they’re ready to have their lives ruined, because EVERYONE knows what they did to that girl. Everyone saw them gloating about it. if the law doesn’t get them, then society will finish the job.
I AM JUST SO PISSED ABOUT THAT OHIO RAPE RIGHT NOW.
Okay, seriously, those boys knew what they were doing when they did it. It’s said in SEVERAL news articles that the ENTIRE team did bullshit and got away with it because they were football players and their coach could get them out of trouble.
Fuck you, for one, on not teaching them the consequences of their actions. You just taught them that if they have power, they’ll never have to own up to whatever it is they’ve done.
Now, here we have them treating this girl like she’s less than human; a piece of shit that doesn’t deserve even the smallest ounce of respect. They use her, abuse her, and put her through such horrible things. Even though she doesn’t remember most of it, SHE HEARD ABOUT WHAT THEY DID TO HER. There were PICTURES AND VIDEOS. She saw those, she saw herself getting raped. That’s going to stay with her forever. She might get passed it; might be able to lift her head, but she will never forget it.
And CNN? FUCK YOU MAJORLY. How dare you sympathize with people who thought that this was totally fine to do to another living human being. They thought nothing of it! They acted like raping this poor girl, who couldn’t even respond to anything they did or said to her, was completely fucking normal. No. These boys are MONSTERS. They’re predators and they deserve whatever they get coming to them.
CNN, how dare you say that being a registered sex offender is a ‘label’. No, don’t make it sound like some high school bullshit, like emo, or prep, or whatever have you. The sex offender registry is there to keep our children and families safe from dangerous people. I’m sorry, but if I have kids, I’m totally going to check if there’s someone dangerous on my street. I don’t want them getting violated any more than I want them getting murdered. You’d want to know if someone potentially dangerous was living near you, right? Once you take away a person’s rights, you sort of lose your own; maybe it’s not ‘right’, or just, but fuck you if I’m going to trust anyone who had the gall to hurt someone else so terribly.
“But they cried and apologized!” No, they didn’t cry for that poor girl. They didn’t cry for the family they’ve harmed, nor the life they’ve destroyed. They cried because they got caught. For a good portion of their lives, they were told, “You can do anything and you won’t get in trouble if you don’t get caught.” Well, now the hammer’s come down, and they were found guilty. Those are tears of fear; they’re sorry they got caught and they’re scared of what that means. They’re not sorry for that poor girl.
“But she was drunk; she doesn’t even remember if she consented or not.” FUCK YOU. NO
Do you know the law? Do you know that it is ILLEGAL to consent to ANYTHING while under the influence of any substance that can alter your state of mind? It’s the same reason that any contract is null and void if you sign while under the influence. She cannot say yes if she’s drunk.
AND WHY IS THAT AN INVITATION? Why is that if a woman is so drunk, or otherwise impaired, it’s totally okay to violate her? That if she’s wearing ‘inviting clothes’, ‘looks really pretty’, it’s suddenly her fault?
Why don’t you blame the person who does the act, not the victim?
See, people say, “They make themselves up to be so tempting!” Well, you know what else is done up so it looks really tempting? Doughnuts. Brownies. Cake. Cookies. But you know what? I can stop myself from eating them. Just because they look really, really good doesn’t mean that I have to eat them. So no, that’s not an excuse. You are a human being; you have reasoning, morals, and all that other fun stuff that tells you, “HEY THIS IS PROBABLY A BAD IDEA.” Perhaps you should learn to use the brain upstairs, rather than the one in your pants.
Not to say that women can’t rape men; should this case be the other way around, my argument would be the same.
Now, the sentencing those idiots got? One year for one, two for the other (because the other had pictures/video of a minor involved in a sex act/naked)? Yeah, no, that’s bullshit. That’s teaching them that, “Oh, you can do this really, really bad thing, but hardly serve any time for it.”
I’m done. I’m done with anyone who thinks that this is alright. I’m tired of all the slut shaming, of all the rapist praising; of all the ignorant people who think that women don’t have fucking rights over their own bodies and thinks that a woman is totally free game to fuck her brains out based on her state of mind or dress. Fuck you.
Here's a thought...
If those boys didn’t want their lives to be ruined by being convicted of a sex crime at 16/17…. then maybe they shouldn’t have raped a young girl. WHY are we sympathizing with these boys that repeatedly took advantage of that poor girl? And POSTED VIDEOS of it on Facebook for all to see? We SHOULD be sympathizing with the young girl who will probably never be the same from the emotional turmoil due to not only the act itself but of this trial.
do you know what im wondering right now? what if because the media’s statements about the boy’s lives being ruined and how they shouldn’t be blamed so “harshly”, the 16 year old rape victim is regretting ever bringing it up to the cops. maybe because of the media attention, she is starting to blame herself and just the thought of that is making me sick.
