Any of you following this story? First the instagram and twitter posts came out, now a video surfaces.
Everyone joking in this video should be fucking castrated.
The video above was released today by the hacktivist outfit KnightSec, which has been leading the digital crusade in response to the alleged rape of a 16-year-old girl at the hands of two Steubenville (Ohio) High School football players. In the video, Michael Nodianos, a former Steubenville High student and baseball player, talks flippantly about the accuser on the night of the incident.
For whatever reason, the headline/link doesn't show up for me. You can find it here: http://deadspin.com/5972527/she-is-so-raped-right-now-former-student-jokes-about-the-steubenville-accuser-the-night-of-the-alleged-rape
Saw the original Anonymous website and the New York Times story. Like a really bad episode of Friday Night Lights. I hope that justice is done but 'cyber-justice' is also a dangerous thing. I don't care whether it is football players or the Trayvon affair. Let's work to make the system work properly, not supplant the system itself.
“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.
I live about an hour and a half away from Steubenville. It is really an economically depressed area with the only thing going for it is Big Red football. It is so sad to see an entire community with a warped sense of community.
Terrible situation for everyone involved. What goes through these young minds...
Join the fight for YOUR liberty!

BD this happened in your state, correct? Is the culture, even in 2013, really that lopsided and twisted in favor of local high school athletes out there? Is it a rural Appalachian thing or is this more widespread in the fabric of younger American culture than I think?
Just can't imagine ANYONE I went to HS with engaging in something like this and subsequentially broadcast it for the world to see... horrifying distorted view of "right" and "wrong".

Got it. I agree with you --- get out the gas!
I didn't watch the video.....they actually filmed this?
Isn't that like criminal squared?
They filmed them talking about it, goofing about it.
Nothing criminal about the video, just insanely disgusting to hear and watch 16 year old guys talk like that (or any guy for that matter).
A standout quote is "She is so raped right now".
I am all for tasteless and crass jokes and I don't think any topic is off-limits, but these guys were not only laughing about a sexual assault, they were doing so while it happened or immediately thereafter - instead of trying to stop the assault or get the victim to safety, or even calling to report the incident to the police.
These kids watched a black-out drunk girl get raped and pissed on, among other things, and their reaction was to take and publicly SHARE pictures and video of it, then make jokes about it in the immediate aftermath. A room full of guys and only one appears to even question it at all. I can't even come close to understanding that mentality.
I'm in the same boat. As you know, all I do is toilet humor, Lenny Bruce, Howard Stern, Joan Rivers, etc. I love equal opportunity offenders. But I can not connect to the thoughts of that being funny at all. And I connect to "F*ck Jesus" being funny if executed properly (see Parker & Stone). But man, this is just surreal...

Reading that made me sick to my stomach.
The sad thing is that this happens more than we would like to admit.
Unfortunately, you are probably correct.
Things like this make me convinced that feminism is needed now more than ever.
Boundaries and structure are needed now more than ever.
Do we need greater equality? Absolutely, but creating race- and gender-based foundations underscore inequality rather than create cooperation.
Now if you were to argue that we need greater balance in masculine and feminine energy in society, politics and workforce, that would be an interesting discussion.
Equal rights does not have to equal preferential treatment, if that is what I am inferring from your post.
Um. No. Don't know how you got that.
Who doesn't have equal rights in this case? Are you saying that somehow the girl did not have the right to safety or that right was suspended?
I would say that a culture that trivializes rape allows a permissive environment where things like this happen again.
Because of the attention the Steubenville case has gotten, San Luis Obispo has launched a campaign to encourage the reporting of rape.
Yes, and the way to address it is to establish boundaries and structure. While the act involves sex, rape is a violent crime, not a sexual expression. Feminism has nothing to do with it, respect for the boundaries of other does.
Equating rape and an old man drooling over a pretty girl is a stretch, IMO, and has little to do with the issue.
But there are power structures which enable the contravention of those rights.
You're now connecting a crime typically perpetrated against women and power structures that protect Johnny Football irrespective of crime. These are totally separate issues that aren't going to be solved by "feminism."
And apparently Katherine Webb would disagree with your connection as well.
