I don’t get why ANYONE would think rape is topic for humor - have y’all heard about the “satiric” article written in the Connecticut Central State University newspaper The Recorder, titled: Rape Only Hurts If You Fight It. Here’s a link to a site with the text:
And another w/statements f/the paper’s staff:
What the??? The editor states they are satirizing the media’s rabid appetite for sensationalistic journalism, but to write this is to have no compassion or empathy for those who’ve been victims/survivors of this horrific assault. I have not been raped, but I had a friend in college jumped and gang-raped, plus I’ve cared for a number of raped children, and let me tell you, there is NOTHING, absolutely NO ANGLE that would be up for humorizing it.
Winston-Salem has had 4 (FOUR!!) rapes and 1 physical assault in the past 3 weekends, in a 5 block radius less than 2 miles f/my house. This is a relatively chill town, so what the??? - and there seem to be no leads, other than the WSPD FINALLY saying today they believe there seem to be more than one suspect involved in the assaults. Latest attack (rape) was today, in broad daylight.
What the ??? In less than one month, our little city has gone f/feeling safe to feeling like we are hunkered down with our hands over our heads. And this clueless (yes, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt, may he never need it again) writer has the balls to make fun of it!!! $^#%, #$%^, #$%^!!!
Ok, deep breath, sigh Thanks for letting me rant, and for everyone out there who loves their moms, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, cousins, and male loved ones too (the kids I cared for were 50/50 male/female) you name it, help keep this world safer by never ever tolerating this behavior…
