Crocodile Tears at the Steubenville Rape Trial

March 17, 2013 § 1 Comment

The judge presiding over the Steubenville rape trial just handed down his verdict (for a refresher on the case and its connection to rape culture, check out Modern Primate’s rundown) — the defendants were declared delinquent, which in juvenile court is the equivalent of a guilty verdict. The female prosecutor urged the judge to give the boys the maximum sentence (you know, because they’re guilty, and not just guilty but until sentencing arrogant, unrepentant and threatening to the victim), while the male defense attorneys…….started crying. As did the defendants. Because it is just so sad, such a tragedy, when boys rape girls and then are forced to face consequences. It is such a hard knock life, for boys who rape!

Sorry, was I being sarcastic? Let me start over: RAPISTS DON’T GET TO CRY. Rapists don’t get to feel bad when they are convicted of rape. Here is a protip: don’t fucking rape. Don’t fucking rape, and save your disgusting crocodile tears for something that actually warrants sympathy. For example the victims.
