Once again, a small town police force sides with the rapist and abuses the victim. Once again, the rapist gets off scot free. Once again, Anonymous targets the rape-loving locals. And once again, suddenly, the “justice’ system starts prosecuting the rapist:

Short form: A young girl got drugged and raped by a high school football star in Maryville, MO. The locals covered it up, dismissed the charges, abused the victim and her family, and generally acted like the rape-loving mother***ers that they are. Indeed, they got the victim’s mother fired, ran the family out of town, and burned down their house. When the family objected, the local pig lawman said that they should just “get over it”. Meanwhile, the scumsucking child-molesting rapist s***head is off at college, making rape jokes on Twitter.

Then, Anonymous got pissed off. And just like in other crappy little rape-havens across the country (like Steubenville, Torrington, et.al) people from outside of the pisspot little towns (like, say the Attorney General) started pressuring the locals to do something about the crimes except jerk off while watching the incriminating videos of the rapes. The locals have, true to form, refused to put down their puds and enforce the law, so the Staties are stepping in. Hopefully it’ll end up like Steubenville, with the rapists in jail and the whole town under criminal investigation.

It is a sad commentary on America’s rape culture that we need a group of online vigilantes to safeguard the women in our nation. But sad or not, it is the reality: many small-town cops dig rape (and they must, because otherwise they’d prosecute the criminals instead of abusing the victims). If ever you (or someone you love) become the victim of sexual violence, put up the FawkesSignal and get Anonymous on the case. Because otherwise, justice will never be served.

Recently the New York Times did a piece on the Torrington CT rape cases, and it exposed some serious underlying reasons for our nation’s problem with rape culture. Disturbing reasons.

There were the usual revolting attitudes towards sexual assault, of course: victim-blaming, slut-shaming, you know the steaming loads of donkey bollocks that rape apologists throw around. And there was something said by one Kenneth Traub, chairman of the Board of education. Something that shows just how out of touch adults have become.

He said, quoting here; “I put no weight in any comments made online. I don’t believe in Facebook. I don’t believe in Twitter”. Meaning by this that anything said over social media is unimportant.

You got that? Since he doesn’t use these tools, they have no value. This is, of course, antediluvian bulls***: such postings are court-admissible evidence, for crying out loud. Indeed, two Steubenville rapists are currently doing time after being convicted based partly on social media postings.

Because of this stupid a** hole’s willful ignorance, not a single student has been brought up before a special board that was set up by less-clueless adults. The board is to deal with cyber-bullying. And since Mr. Traub does not believe in cyber-anything, he will not use the tools available to solve the problem. And so the problem continues to get worse.

These are the people who are supposed to educate our children. People who are deliberately choosing not to live in the same world their students inhabit. And they wonder why they aren’t getting their message across? Christ on a trampoline, really?

Memo to Mr. Traub, and all who think like he does: you are failing us, you are failing our children, and you bear part of the blame for the sexual assaults perpetrated upon our daughters. You carry this guilt because you choose not to take the actions required to address the problems of the real world in which our girls get raped.

And because you choose not to address the problem, you are, effectively, accessories to rape. Your mothers would be so proud.
