I sometimes wish I could live back in the beginning of the 19th century instead of living in this madness that is going on. Im really worried about what life will look like in 10-20 years.
Terrible that people have those kind of thoughts/do those kind of things, but the fact that they post it on the internet like they have nothing to fear just sickens and scares me!
I wonder where we went wrong.
And even if this tweet (or the at least the rape part) should turn out to be fake, it’s just sick that people think this is funny or a normal thing to do…

That is completely horrible for someone to post if faked. If real, then it’s unimaginable and pretty stuff on their part to have their name to it.

@SoonToBee2013: Holy crap. I hope someone reported this.
As for living in the 19th century…Things like this still happened. There just wasn’t an internet to blast it on or support for women who were raped.

It is very sad and gross. I’m glad I’m not a teenager anymore in this day and age. So disturbing its not even funny!

The account has been suspended.. so it looks like it was definitely reported. Holy crap though, gross.

I wouldn’t want to grow up in this internet day and age. Cyber bullying, revenge porn, it’s all getting to be too much. People need to be careful and manage their online identities (and real life ones too). I wouldn’t wear anything I’d be embarassed to be photographed in, leave my drink unattended, or get drunk in public but to each their own.
I’d assume this to be fake because I can’t imagine anyone being stupid enough to admit to a crime on social media (let alone their real account – not that it couldn’t be traced).

The FBI has an internet taskforce for this type of thing. So do many local police forces. I’ve contacted both of them before to turn in child porn sickos on Twitter. Please send this to one of them. I don’t care if it might be fake,there is no way to know for sure.

I only posted it because her face is not visible and it seems like police is looking for those people. It was posted by celebrities trying to hunt down the guys that posted this. I didnt mean to offend anyone.
Of course women had to go thru similar things already back then, but now with the internet and mobile phones this kind of stuff is just on another level. You dont just get raped, a video of it will even appear on the internet… Its just sick.

@SoonToBee2013: hoax or not, that is disgusting and people post lots of horrible things online. However, in spite of the terrible things that happen everyday, society is actually less violent now than at any other time in human history.

Not sure what is more horrifying: this action, picture, or the fact that it got over 600 retweets and over 200 favorites. Awful.

Why are people retweeting this?? I’m scared to raise children in this world, but we have to. Hopefully we can make the world a bit better if we stop “liking” only crap!

Whaaaat. It must be fake though. Who is seriously that dumb to admit their crime on twitter of all things? Then again… some people are incredibly stupid.

Not so much stupid, but know they can probably get away with it given recent sentencings for rape. Remember Steubenville (sp?)?
I just saw this article and had to share as it references this:

Things like this happened in the beginning of the 19th century too, so you wouldn’t be getting away from it if you somehow managed to go back in time.
Stuff like this has been around for a long, long time — millennia — just not with the technology to document it in this way. Technology like this is a tool that can be used in many ways. Unfortunately, people use it for things like this. Fortunately, this technology can also be their undoing.
Hopefully this isn’t real. If it is real, hopefully justice will be served and that woman will be ok.
