The Obligatory Steubenville Post.2

In Fleshed Out Tweets on March 20, 2013 at 10:56 am

If there is any silver lining it might be that this Steubenville thing was sort of a crowd sourced investigation & indictment.
Thank you Alexandria Goddard- she had the,foresight to grab screen shots of tweets before they were erased.

I received more than a bit of push back on my observation that this was a question of Drunks Raping a Drunk- it appears, to me, that any suggestion that in some small way a person who gets drunk and finds themselves in a jam is partially responsible is “Victim Blaming”.

A semi- famous blogger even twit complained about me even bringing it up.
But then “Call Me Miss” seems to be on the same page and she is a far superior writer to me. http://callmemiss.com/2012/11/14/hiding-in-plain-sight-alcohol-and-the-suicide-of-trey-malone/

Ultimately- in some very bizarre way Mays & Richmond may have thought they were having sex with this girl…. Of course there is the unacknowledged gay aspect, sex by proxy, I suspect between any two men who fuck the same woman serially or at,the same time.

You can’t get away with shit anymore. Ten years ago this would have been a nasty, whispered, rumor that followed Mays & Richmond for a while.

And last but not least-
These 2 knuckle headed deviants didn’t operate in a vacuum.
Where did the booze come from?
Where was it consumed?
The coaches & teachers who became aware of this were bound by law to report to the police and ultimately didn’t.

Update 3/21- I can’t say I agree with everything that she says; but will give Ms Nelson a lot of credit for defining the concept of “Rape Culture”

I’m also incredibly disappointed in the GMP Audience 15 comments on this piece and 500 on Yoga Pants

You hit the road, during a snow storm, on bald tires.
You are running out for a bag of chips, not medicine for your ailing infant.
You wreck your car.
Is it entirely the DOT’s fault for not plowing, sanding & salting?
While you are recuperating from a broken pelvis does the knowledge that you had every right to be on the road alleviate some of the pain?
