Chris Selley’s thinking “epitomizes the rape culture”

Anonymous dissects the National Post “moron” who is indifferent to what happened to Rehtaeh:

“…he’s a moron. Let’s slow down for one second and assume that I did release the names of those rapists… what law am I breaking? I suppose they could sue me for slandering them. Of course, to do that they’d have to prove I was lying.

This gets worse: he says we should ignore the photo being spread around the school because it probably happens all time. We can’t expect the legal system to punish everyone that’s passing around photos of women being raped, now can we? It’s ‘fairly routine adolescent behaviour.’

Chris Selley’s article epitomizes the rape culture. Selley is equating a traumatic rape with a picture of a girl’s breast she took in a mirror and sent to her boyfriend.”

    I’m not sure if it’s accurate to say that these alleged rapists could sue for slander but then they would have to prove their own innocence. I think if you call someone a rapist who hasn’t been convicted in court, they’re going to have the easier end of that civil suit until they’ve been charged and convicted. In any event, the best option is for the police to do their jobs and bring people to the court room when they have committed crimes. It’s unacceptable for the police to sit back and do nothing.

    I think everyone was hella impressed with how well-executed and clear this burn was. I have seen other point these things out in the last few days, but this was a perfect communication of the points. Kudos Anonymous interview-giver.

    RCMP’s commissioner Bob Paulson has commented “If they want to work with us, they’ve got to take their masks off,”

    The irony of it all. Ian Bush, Robert Dziekanski, but a few.

      Irony of the situation when RCMP and all other police agencies support and promote anonymous crime stoppers

    Quote from the link, “We need action in the schools where the children can feel it.”

    We need action that goes beyond dumping parental and societies economic issues on people who’s role it is to provide an education, not to be a surrogate parent, or a substitute for the justice system.

    Sorry for the blow by blow reaction/ updates, but I’m old and I only remember so much at one time. Hard drive is full, have to delete other data in order to retain new data.

    Before I forget, one student from Cole Harbor quoted in a Herald article referred to one of the males involved as an athlete. There is a culture in that community, but few will talk about it openly.

    It’s been a hell of a week and I can’t remember being so upset in such a long time. Gotta walk away for a bit but first… Thanks Warren for the Anonymous appeal. Didn’t think it had a chance but wow.

    If I may let me leave you all with this.

    to paraphrase Neil Young

    they saw the deed and the damage done
    a little bit of it in everyone
    gone gone the damage done

    This conversation needs to be kept going until the rape apologists who pass as punditry are too ashamed to blather any more. It is cultural poison disguised as contrarian-ism. Glad you are engaging yr audience. Hope those four “boys” spend the rest of their time outside prison trembling.

    I’m a NDP douchebag who cares more about Dexter than Rehteah.
