- American media on the India gang rape: Omg those barbarians are out of control! Look at us, we're so ahead of the times!
- American media on the Steubenville rape: Omg look at the lives we're ruining by convicting these 16 year old rapists!
- EDIT This pisses me off: Most news sources(I'm sure there are some fucked up people out there) are not writing columns about how this is ruining the convicted rapists lives. They may be telling you how the drama in the court room is, but it's not that they truly feel sorry for these criminals. I've never seen someone realize their life is over before they even realized it, and breakdown without caring who sees it. But I can say that describing the tumultuous moments when a person realizes that is going to be like any story. A charming beginning, a climax, and the devastating end where justice has prevailed. Most of the people that reblog this actually wish that was the case just so they'll have something to scream about today. Some of you out there really want the world/USA to be full of people clamoring for the freedom of rapists. Fucking dumb. Go ahead and Google search Steubenville Rape, and you'll see they all just mention that they are convicted rapists. One does mention it as the case social media won, but it's in a positive manner. Do some fucking research before you blindly call rape culture in a dumb fucking move to get reblogs. Rapists are a problem that unfortunettly plagues our planet due to a lack of strong mental healthcare procedures. So are people that aren't actually doing anything besides rubbing one out at the thought of being tumblr famous.
- One other note: If you do want to yell and scream over anything you should be pissed that as of right now only two people were charged, and at minimum a combined three years between them. We see children charged with murder all of the time. This boys/young men/men knew what they were doing, and should have been charged like any other rapist. In no way to I feel sorry for them. I just understand the overly dramatic ways the news networks...CNN work. Please, if you are going to reblog something as the talking point you should reblog the messages about how these guys will spend barely any time in juvy when they should be in prison.
