“RAPE CREW” COACH BLATANTLY DENIES COVER-UP, BLAMES “ANONYMOUS” FOR PERPETUATING FALSE CLAIMS
Two football players kidnapped a sixteen-year-old girl who was possibly drugged and too drunk to resist and took her to several parties where she was then raped. THE EVENT WAS EVEN LIVE-TWEETED BY THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.
From the NYT website: “Twitter posts, videos and photographs circulated by some who attended the nightlong set of parties suggested that an unconscious girl had been sexually assaulted over several hours while others watched. She even might have been urinated on. In one photograph posted on Instagram by a Steubenville High football player, the girl, who was from across the Ohio River in Weirton, W.Va., is shown looking unresponsive as two boys carry her by her wrists and ankles. Twitter users wrote the words “rape” and “drunk girl” in their posts.”
Local parents and authorities in Steubenville, OH are invested in covering the story up, claiming the girl “made it up” to cover up the fact that she drank too much and was out late, and that it’s ruining their football program - despite the fact that there is evidence of these boys laughing and talking about the rape on video and through social media as it happens. DON’T LET THESE SICK BASTARDS GET AWAY WITH IT JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE PRECIOUS FOOTBALL PLAYERS.
(Sidenote: “Dead” is a euphemism for “drugged”.)
HOW ARE WE AT A POINT WHERE WE WILL DEFEND RAPISTS EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE TWEETED, POSTED A PHOTO, AND RECORDED A VIDEO BLATANTLY ADMITTING - BOASTING ABOUT - THE FACT THAT THEY RAPED SOMEONE? WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK.
VIDEO of the rapists’ gloating. Warning: the video is disgusting. In the twelve-minute original, some fucked up shit is said, but what stuck out the most was when someone got disgusted and went to go check on the rape victim and asked Michael (the guy telling all the jokes), “What if that was your daughter/sister?” And he replied, “I wouldn’t care.”
There are more tweets than this even. He also brags about peeing on her. He also calls her the “whore” everyone is talking about (or it might have been another football player but in any case it was said).
It’s really the most disgusting thing I’ve heard about in a LONG time. Especially made worst because this town has shown that they care more about these sociopathic football players (not just including the rapists but the girls’ ex bf who orchestrated it & all the people who stood by and watched and even recorded it on their phones and etc, and the people who make fun of her instead of standing in solidarity with her) and the community is on THEIR side and doesn’t care whatsoever for the girl who was victimized.
And part of it is money I’m sure. Because that football team brings in a lot of revenue. But the bigger factor is that they’re operating within a culture that is uncaring of violence done against women. So boys/ men feel like they can do whatever they want to women no matter how sadistic and violent and other men (and even unenlightened women) will turn a blind eye.
They turned Nana into an anime? WHY HAVEN’T I KNOWN ABOUT THIS
Because it wasn’t as good as the anime.
Also the Parakiss anime was really disappointing.
It blows my mind that people think they can say “I’m not a racist” and think it makes their statement not racist.
I know everyone has said this already, but SNL is spoofing Rush Limbaugh and it’s like. The spoof is less offensive than the shit he actually says.
LOL I CAAAAAAAAN’T. Yes, I understand that I am going to continue using a plug-in that makes your site bearable to use and constantly provides us with the things you decided to take away.

"Use an original title"
Does that mean just make a title or one of those really unprofessional ones that are like “Here is a pun or witticism related to the topic: what i am actually talking about.” Because fuck those.

I have this problem when writing.
I can never write full stories. I mean, I have before. But they’ve all been one shot fanfics (ETA: Oh, and I finished NaNoWriMo last year. Somehow. Idek how), and it’s mostly been PWP. So that hardly counts. But when I actually want to write, I’ll only write the scenes that popped into my head to inspire me, and then I’ll never come back to it ever, ever again.
Like today, while leaving for work, I got sudden inspiration for post-SBP “Lie low at Lupin’s for awhile” fic. Great, right? I’ve been wanting that forever! There has to be tons of fics based on “lie low at Lupin’s for awhile” but I haven’t been able/been bothered to find them. So I’ll just write this one!
Yeah, cool story bro. Wrote the scene where Sirius first comes back to Remus’ flat, a later scene where they’re talking about it all over tea and chocolate, and then jumped to them just holding each other on Remus’ bed. THERE’S NO CONTINUITY. IT’S JUST STUFF THAT WAS IN MY HEAD. It’s like this with everything. Good thing I don’t actually want to write, and I just want to edit books. I’m much better at that.
#1 reason I struggle to write.
