@Mrs.McMac:  How fucking disgusting. The things I would do to that kid if he were tied up. I can’t believe that he would even say those things and then laugh! I feel so sorry for that poor girl. ):

@Mrs.McMac:  I don’t understand why teenagers are so mean to each other these days. It breaks my heart that he was so cruel to a girl who had been raped. What if that was his sister, or one of the more logical people from the article, his own daughter. I hope her father finds him and beats the crap out of him. Poor girl.

Ugh. These people. I can’t even.

And the comments. “Videos like this make me pray that my daughter will identify as lesbian.” Yep, because being a lesbian totally prevents you from getting raped. Only straight girls get raped, you know.

So glad that these monsters have been found guilty…So often the victim is blamed.I feel like there are more responsbile people then Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond that should also also be doing time.

I wish that we could bring back some medieval torture punishment…castration anyone?

@vorpalette:  One of my coworkers (who I can’t stand btw) said she “would never have daughters b/c girls get beaten up and raped.” Not kidding. She said this casually at lunch during work hours too. I sat there open-mouthed unable to think of what to say as I was in a professional setting after all.Embarassed

I think society needs to take a serious look at itself – no wonder evils like those in Ohio are happening. It seems that people nowadays are so casual about their deeply rooted hatred of women/girls and rape in general.

Ugh. People. I have been involved in a 12 hour 40+ post debate with my cousin on his fb wall about a comment he made about this. It is his belief that although they should go to jail for raping her, it is her fault for getting raped too because she put herself in a defenseless position.

For some reason rape is a crime that seems to place blame on the victim. You shouldn’t have to try not to get raped. People should just not rape. There’s a campaign in my university at the moment aimed at young men called ‘don’t be that guy’ which stresses the importance of consent. This is who we should be targeting. Not telling women what they should or shouldn’t wear or do.

@bretonvirgniia:  + a million

One of the boys is going to appeal his verdict because his “brain isn’t fully developed,” so he didn’t know what he was doing. BULLFUCKINGSHIT. I would KILL my son if he did something like this.

@MrsNewDay:  wtffffff

@hopeandpray:  This is beautiful. This needs to happen everywhere. We need to stop telling girls to stop from getting raped and start telling boys to NOT RAPE.

@vorpalette:  Brain not fully developed – wtf!  Teenagers know the difference between right and wrong.  This was just plain wrong. The whole thing makes me rage.

I think the statements people make about women were “asking for it” for one reason or another just make me angry and honestly should make men more angry than women. Basically, it’s insinuating that men, at their core, are rapists and it takes insane amounts of self control for them to just not overtake women on the street.

This whole case makes me sick to my stomach and I hope that it opens parents eyes to the morals they need to be instilling in their children.

Check out SlutWalk (Wikipedia site, so don’t know how accurate that info is)

This is a group that protests the prosecution of the victim. Just because a girl dresses a certain way, it never means that she’s asking for it.

 

This is done in Toronto and Chicago so far, but this cause really needs to get some steam rolling. Espeically in light of situations like the horrible one in Stupidville.

@JackiBean:  I attended last years Slutwalk and it was amazing.

 

These were some of my favourite signss…
