I’m So Tired Of This Shit…

March 13, 2013

I can’t even get outraged anymore.

I’ve written before about the Steubenville Rape Case and how, um, what’s the word? Heinous, horrifying, insane, it is.

The trial starts tomorrow and the defendants have announced their strategy. They’re claiming the teen girl who was dragged unconscious around several homes, penetrated by multiple people and objects, photographed in this state and generally tortured for hours, consented.

I’ll pause here to allow for your perfectly rational howls of outrage.

Yep, consent. Now let’s get this straight. A teenager cannot consent to being photographed by others in several states of undress, sexually assaulted and sodomized. Can’t happen. Not possible.

But they’re going with that. They really are.

I can’t even howl with outrage. I’ve actually got rape culture fatigue. I’m just tired of all that shit.

Oh and the defense attorney, who is actively trying the “she asked for it,” defense is also claiming that the victim’s desire to not have her face plastered all over the world or to be slut shamed in open court is somehow proof that she is lying.

I just….I don’t even.

    If I believed in hell, I would know that there is a special space there reserved for these people.

    Since I don’t believe in hell, but do believe that what you put out into the world, you get back 3 times over – I recommend that everyone stay the heck away from these guys. Because when the universe delivers the just rewards, it is going to be so big, that everyone in their general vicinity is going to feel the heat.
