TW: Rape apology, rape culture
TRIGGER FUCKING WARNING RAPE AND THE STATE OF THE UNION
DO YOU FUCKING REMEMBER HOW A GIRL IN OHIO WAS DRUGGED AND GANG-RAPED REPEATEDLY AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT PARTIES IN ONE NIGHT?
DO YOU REMEMBER HOW OUTRAGED WE WERE?
THIS IS THE NEWS COVERAGE IT GOT.
ONLY TWO BOYS WERE TRIED FOR IT. ONLY THREE YEARS OF JAILTIME WERE HANDED BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM.
AND THEY WERE PRESENTED AS THE VICTIMS IN THIS
THIS IS NOT THE WORLD I SIGNED ON FOR. THIS IS NOT THE LEGAL SYSTEM I LEARNED ABOUT IN SCHOOL, AND THIS IS NOT THE WAY THIS STORY ENDS.
GET MAD. GET FUCKING FURIOUS.
AND GET LOUD, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT GOING TO STAND FOR THIS
I could only get through half of this before I got too fucking upset.
800 KINDS OF DONE WITH THE WORLD.
Are you fucking kidding me? They expect me to find fucking sympathy for these guys?
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!! THEY LITERALLY CALLED THESE SICK FUCKS “THE VICTIMS”. EXCUSE ME?? I DON’T UNDERSTAND. THESE ASSHOLES GANG RAPED A GIRL AND THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO BREAK DOWN AND CRY BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING MILDLY PUNISHED FOR THE TERRIBLE THING THEY DID. NO FUCK THEM. AND NOT ONCE DID THEY BRING UP THE ACTUAL VICTIM. OH NO THESE POOR BOYS LIVES ARE RUINED BECAUSE THEY’RE INDECENT, DISGUSTING, INDIVIDUALS. FUCCCCCCCCCCK I’M SO FURIOUS RIGHT NOW. I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN HOW FUCKED UP THIS IS. AND ‘OH THESE POOR BOYS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO REGISTER AS SEX OFFENDERS AND IT’S GOING TO HAUNT THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR PATHETIC LITTLE LIVES.” FUCK YES IT IS. MAYBE BECAUSE, OH I DON’T KNOW, THEY ARE SEX OFFENDERS. I’M SO FUCKING DONE WITH THIS SHIT.
This is fucking appalling. CNN seriously thought it was OK to spend fucking 6 minutes (and probably more) bemoaning the fate of two convicted rapists. Not only that, but the fucking marquee also read “allegedly drunk victim”. Uhhh, pretty sure the case was proven and she was FUCKING DRUNK. Jesus fucking Christ, even when the shit has proven it still isn’t proven. I’m so fucking done with this shit.
Seriously, Tumblr plays my emotions like a fucking fiddle. One minute it’s all YES GAY PORN I LOVE GAY PORN the next it’s like HOW ABOUT A HEALTHY DOSE OF RAGE DO YOU WANT SOME RAGE TODAY HERE’S SOMEONE BEING A TOTAL PRICK ARE YOU RAGING YET and then it’s like LOL JK HERE HAVE SOME SUPERNATURAL LULZ and then it’s like NO HAVE SOMETHING HORRIBLY DEPRESSING AND SADDENING and then finally it makes you listen to Mambo No.5 and i’m just done help i can’t any more.
