Rape Culture and 2013--WTF, Everybody?

I haven't posted about the War on Women for awhile, but it's still on. It's always on, somewhere. This is some bullshit from a place called Steubenville, OH. This is a small town where high school students on a football team took photos of their stupid, horrid selves abusing a 16-year-old girl.

And they were proud of it. They bragged about it. They were very copacetic with rape. And "death":

(Trigger warning--no shit.)

Hur hur hur, rape. Hur hur hur, dead. There is hardly anything funnier than abusing a human being to death. Or raping her and killing her reputation. This is what they think is funny. Is it, now? Is this a real mind-set?

"It isn't rape because you don't know if she wanted to or not."

Hey, motherfucker? Ask. And um, seriously? Calling someone "dead" because she might be drunk or whatever doesn't change whether you are a fucking rapist-minded sicko. If calling someone "dead" because she can't fight back makes it "okay" to you--you have a problem with reality. Because in reality, if someone didn't actually say so much as "put your cock in me"--you have no fucking business putting your cock in them! And if you have any question in your fragile little brain about how that works, imagine someone put their cock in you. Goddamn. How do you live not understanding that other people are people?

(Deleted. Too pissed to be coherent enough. Will be back to continue it later.)

The more I read about this case, the more depressed and enraged I become. The calculated nature of the assault (apparently revenge for the girl dumping one of the perps' inner circle), the use of sexual violence as a means of control, the outright corruption of the school and the police force and the judiciary of the community... everything about this case makes me want to scream that Steubenville should be razed to the ground, its population encarcerated, and salt plowed into the fields.

this blog post takes the U.S. media to task for covering the horrific Indian rape-and-murder case as if "rape culture" were strictly a Third World problem.

Damn, sometimes I think an asteroid strike wouldn't be such a bad thing. Maybe the bonobos could survive and make a go of things. We seem to have failed as a species.
