(Your humble correspondent is feeling exceptionally cranky today, so prepare for even less tact than usual.)

Recently, a scumbucket pervert misogynistic motherf***ing hacker stole a lot of nude photos of famous women and posted them online. And a lot of people who really should know better have said really stupid s*** like “it’s her own fault, because she posted them online”. All together now, let us respond from the First Book of Crankitude: “BULL-F***ing-S***”.

This is victim-blaming crap, and it is usually done to women. It takes many forms. A few examples:
“She should have known better than to have nude pictures of herself”;
“She shouldn’t have been drinking”;
“She shouldn’t have gone to a party”;
Or, of course, this writer’s pet peeve; “She was asking for it, dressing that way”.

All of these statements are pretty much equivalent: they are designed to control and degrade women, and have been used towards that end with (sadly) great success. And uttering any of them makes the speaker the moral equivalent of a peeping tom, Fundagelical wingnut preacher, rapist, or all of the above.

We don’t often (if ever) say these things about men. We don’t apply these antediluvian judgements to men. No, it’s pretty much always women who get the shame & blame treatment.

Until men are treated the same way as women, let’s all just stop treating women as if we were living in the dark f***ing ages. That isn’t really all that much to ask.

Mister Blunt and Cranky

That seems to be how America operates: women, people of color, and non-Christians are pretty much here on sufferance, and any injury done to “those people” is no big deal. But nononono, don’t mess with the right-wing honkey dudes, nononono. They are deserving of doubt’s benefit, due process, tolerance, and understanding, yupyupyup. A short list of examples follows :

Number A: Michael Brown, yet another black man executed without due process by a racist white cop. But let’s not rush to judgment, the white cop deserves a fair trial and all the benefits of our legal system. Pity the black man didn’t get any of those things, but hey, it’s his own fault for picking African-American parents, right?

Letter 2: Let’s just read this headline: “Hedy Epstein, 90-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor, Arrested During Michael Brown Protest”. Yes, you read that correctly. This Jewish female had the nerve to suggest that the Christian male cops were out of line for murdering black citizens, so they grabbed her and threw her a** in jail. No references to the Nazis are allowed, nononono, that might be offensive to the St. Louis police, right?

Thirdly: Don’t  report on the evil being done by white Christian males, or you will be arrested. If you are lucky, that is: they might threaten to kill you, instead, for betraying your fellow male oppressors. Nothing worse than a traitor, amirite?

Fourth: the best way to explain away the heinous actions of White Christian Males is to employ the services of a bunch of smiling white people. Because these sweet young white ladies are just doing their jobs, and it would be ungentlemanly to ask them any uncomfortable questions. And be nice to the clean-cut young white Christian men, too, because, well, you know, white people.

Finally: even if a man is a convicted, registered sex offender, white Christian males can use their discretion to allow him into school buildings and onto a varsity football team, because, hey, the girl shouldn’t have put herself in that position, right? The poor widdle wapist deserves a chance to get his life back. And it is wrong to shame him, because he only did what any other man has a right to do, right? Those women have it coming, acting that way, right?

One might say that this writer and other white men should be  deeply ashamed of many members of our  gender, ethnicity, and faith. One would be right. All that privilege went to their heads and turned into a gargantuan sense of entitlement: to the extent that we see the majority of the world’s population being oppressed and abused by a minority (us).

But hey, next time, pick the right parents and chromosome set before you get born like we did, okey-dokey?  Otherwise, don’t complain about being oppressed, killed, raped and abused, because it’s your own damned fault for not being white, Christian and male. Winners keep, losers weep. Quitcherbitchin, loser scum.

Motherf***ing s*** is stunning, isn’t it? This scumbucket git convicted, did time, and now the football team has welcomed him back with open arms. What a cesspool of hate and violence is Steubenville:

One of the two Steubenville (Ohio) football players convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl at a party two years ago is back on the football team, according to WTRF-TV.

Ma’lik Richmond, a wide receiver who served a one-year sentence in a juvenile facility after a nationally watched trial, was allowed to return even though he must register as a sex offender for 20 years. He is shown with the other seniors and in a closeup in a team photo on the Big Red fan site.

A couple of awesomely snarky tweets on the topic:

So what that a young woman’s life is ruined? What matters is that her rapist is given another shot at football. http://t.co/MuM1NkS0uV

@MichelleLMcKee Steubenville’s rape numbers were abysmally low last year. Perhaps they can rebuild, starting with this talent addition.

Truly a disgusting, rape-loving, child-molesting dung heap. And so is the town. Here’s hoping the parents of underage girls all have CCW permits, because their daughters are all in danger again, and the cops have proven themselves to be a bunch of preeves; so the families will, once again, have to take care of their kids. The city, county, and school administrations love rape and lionize rapists.

Don’t believe it? Then why is Malik Richmond, convicted sex offender, back on the team?

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Pretty much the only explanation: the judge sentenced a man who repeatedly raped a three-year-old girl to probation. Oh, and he should get some help for his ailment. Because prison would not “serve him well”.

The fact that Jurden expressed concern that prison wasn’t right for Richards came as a surprise to defense lawyers and prosecutors who consider her a tough sentencing judge. Several noted that prison officials can put inmates in protective custody if they are worried about their safety, noting that child abusers are sometimes targeted by other inmates.

As one public defender noted,

“It’s an extremely rare circumstance that prison serves the inmate well,” said Delaware Public Defender Brendan J. O’Neill, whose office represents defendants who cannot afford a lawyer. “Prison is to punish, to segregate the offender from society, and the notion that prison serves people well hasn’t proven to be true in most circumstances.”

The only reason for kissing the arse of this man who rapes pre-schoolers is his great wealth. The judge, who usually hands down tough sentences when poor or middle-class defendants are found guilty, inexplicably let this rich scumbag off without even a wrist-slap.

Because if you are rich in America, raping pre-schoolers means never having to say you’re sorry.

F*** that guy, and f*** that judge.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Christ on a fruitcake, really? Yes, really. Those are the only logical meanings one can draw from their writer, one James Taranto. According to a recent editorial, if a woman has had a drink or two, she is equally “at fault” for being raped.

You see, to Mr. Taranto, rape isn’t the fault of the rapist. He compares rape to an accident involving two drunken drivers: two people committing equally criminal acts. And this shows what a misogynistic f***wit he is.

Rape is a violent crime, with a perpetrator and a victim. It is not a crime committed by two criminals (like his flawed drunken driving analogy): in the case of rape, the rapist assaults the victim, who either does not consent or is not capable of consenting. The victim is not, repeat NOT committing a criminal act. Having a drink is not a crime.

Mark this well: if someone cannot legally consent, the answer is no. That is common law, understood for business dealings, elections, and other interactions: drunk people cannot legally enter into so much as a car loan or a poker game. And if you steal a drunk’s wallet, you are still a thief. If you break into a drunk’s house and beat the s*** out of them, you are still assaulting them.

But if you rape a drunk, that is somehow different, according to this guy:

20140212-092622.jpg Apparently, he does not think sexual assault is a crime. Shoot a drunk, beat a drunk, those are crimes, but if a penis is involved in a violent crime, then it’s somehow OK, right?

Wrong. Just ask the two scumbuckets from Steubenville who are doing time for raping a drunk girl. Ask anyone busted for drugging a girl and then raping her. These. Are. Crimes. Using a penis as a weapon does not excuse the criminal. Getting her drunk first doesn’t either.

The Wall Street Journal apparently thinks otherwise. And hey, a dick wrote that editorial, and bunch of dicks decided to print it, so maybe they are all thinking with the wrong head. But only a person who thinks solely with his dick would say that rape is not a crime.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Along with the local cops and the university. Good thing, too:
http://gma.yahoo.com/jameis-winston-39-alleged-victim-39-absolutely-39-205809923–abc-news-topstories.html

The attorney for Jameis Winston’s alleged rape victim said she “absolutely” plans to file a civil lawsuit against the Florida State University star quarterback and the Tallahassee Police Department.

“I want heads to roll,” Pat Carroll, the attorney for the woman who claims Winston raped her in December 2012, told ABC News in an exclusive interview.

Carroll said the Tallahassee Police Department was negligent in handling her client’s case against the 20-year-old Heisman Trophy winner. He claims the way police handled the allegations led to a prosecutor’s decision to drop the case.

A very brave woman. The university and the local cops tried to stop her from reporting the rape and then dragged their feet, covered for the Heisman Rapist, and generally did their best to ensure that Justice would not be done. So she is going the civil litigation route.

It worked with another violent criminal football star and Heisman Trophy winner (OJ Simpson) after the criminal justice system failed to render justice upon him. Here’s hoping that it works here, too. Maybe then this violent criminal, and his many enablers, will get what they deserve.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Another day, another football player rapes a girl, and the whole town helps him get away with it. Jameis Winston is the alleged rapist, and just like in other s***hole football towns, the star quarterback got off scot-free, and his victim got raked over the coals. Hell, not only did the raping little motherf***er get away with his crime, he’ll probably get the Heisman Trophy tomorrow, and his victim will still be in a living Hell.

So now the victim’s attorney has put up the batsignal, asking that the Florida Attorney General review the case. Because the locals investigated the victim instead of the perp, tried to keep her from filing charges, stalled the investigation, and finally called her a slut and a liar in a nationally-televised news conference. Once again, Steubenville South.

One hopes that the rape-loving cops and other cover-up artists will be subjected to few thousand years in Hell of continuous, agonizing sexual assaults so they can feel the pain of the women they betrayed in this life. Because right now, the chances of justice being done in Florida are somewhere between slim and zilch.

Considering more charges. Fingers crossed.

Just like Steubenville before it, Maryville is condoning sex crimes committed against children. A 13-year old girl was plied with booze until she passed out, then raped repeatedly, and dumped on her lawn in freezing temperatures, and then left to die. When she objected to being raped, she and her family were run out of town, and their house was burned to the ground.

And like Steubenville, the town is covering up the crime, abusing the victim, and supporting the stinking pervert rapist.  Which pretty well makes Maryvillians a load of rape freaks. Here’s the story from the KC Star: http://www.kansascity.com/2013/10/12/4549775/nightmare-in-maryville-teens-sexual.html The local law said, “I guess they’re just going to have to get over it”. Girls at the high school wore t-shirts with slogans like “Matt 1: Daisy 0”.  The victim’s mother was fired from her job by a boss who has close ties to the rapist. The charges against the rapist were dismissed, and he is off at college, tweeting little comments like: “If her name begins with A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z, she wants the D.”

If anything connected with this disgusting episode can be considered “good news”, here it is: Anonymous has put that s***-hole town in its digital sights: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/10/14/anonymous-targets-missouri-town-for-refusing-to-prosecute-man-who-confessed-to-having-sex-with-14-year-old-and-leaving-her-to-die/  You can read their page here: https://twitter.com/search?q=opmaryville&src=typd

Once again, America, it is time to face up to the facts: this is a profoundly sick nation. And you can’t point at Maryville as an exception or aberration like you did all the other little pisspot towns in the past, because there are just too many of them out there.

If these demented, privileged, scumbucket, pervert mother***ers aren’t jailed, then the community needs to shame them, shun them, and broadcast their crimes far and wide. Make them pay at least a tiny bit of the price for their crimes. Because, as in Steubenville, local law will not do their jobs: not, that is, if a high school football star rapes a little girl.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/10/07/steubenville-rape/2939759/  William Rhinaman, an IT guy who worked for the Steubenville school system, has been charged with tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury. And the AG has said the “investigation continues”.

A hopeful sign. Keep your eyes peeled, folks. There’s lots of other “adults” in the town who need jailing.
