When the state of Ohio found two sixteen year old boys guilty of ra.ping a sixteen year old girl, both boys cried their eyes out moments after the verdict. Every major news outlet coddled them instead of the girl they ra.ped. CNN was grieving over the deaths of their futures in football. They said nothing of the cemetery growing inside the body of the girl. Nothing of the graveyard where she buried her trust in men. Ra.pe culture is the worst kind of teacher our kids are learning from. It teaches women that it is their responsibility not to get ra.ped. It teaches men that boys will be boys. It teaches us that a short skirt and a smile is asking for it. It teaches us that it's not wrong unless someone comes to the rescue.
