Dear Media

In the wake of the verdict in the Steubenville rape case, I really appreciate the insights that you have given me!

I just came back from a great vacation. Good to know that if anything had happened to me, it would have been my own fault for traveling alone and daring to have a couple glasses of wine in the evening.

Also, I think it’s great that the concern here is over the fact that the two asshole rapists had such a promising future! No worries about the victim’s future, she screwed up by you know, just existing in the first place. Let’s not forget, if the rapists just hadn’t been caught, we wouldn’t have to deal with any of this messiness and they could have gone on with those promising lives and cured cancer or something. So kids, be more careful with what you post on social media!

Christ, and we wonder why there are men and boys out there that think rape isn’t a big deal. It’s only a problem if you get caught.
