Humanity, Rape Culture, and When Rape is Okay?

27 May

Hello readers. I want to share something with you. Please, settle in, and read all these quotes about rape:

 

Rape him again n again till he bleeds to death through his asshole” – Justin Lyons

“He got what he deserved [by being raped]” – Trish Drury

“Don’t care if it’s wrong. He got what he deserved” – Connie Kostecky Mattair

“Good, hope it keeps happening.” – PerfectChaos

“…i hope he gets raped daily…” – TwiztedAngel

 

We talk about how we need to stop the cycle of rape culture, but here are 5 examples…pardon by language…some messed up shit! Real people said this. I didn’t make those up, they aren’t in books. The first three were from the comment section of a Facebook post, and the last 2 were from a forum. So what might you ask are these comments on? You might have already read the article, but a man who raped and killed a small child was taken to prison, and during the 30 days prior to his hearing, he was raped by 20 men. Then, because of the injuries he sustained, he was taken to the medic to be sewn up, following which he got raped again by the group again causing him to tear out his stitches and bleed through his pants.

If you’re interested in reading some more, and seeing pictures (required if you are going to post a comment similar to those above) you can find it here.

Seeing these pictures and thinking about the amount of pain he must have been in makes me physically ill. It makes me want to cry. No, no child deserves this. What he did to that child was also horrific. But this…it just makes the people who raped him rapists and suddenly, instead of having one child rapist there are now one child rapist and 20 rapists.

I simply can’t imagine having this feeling in my heart to wish that it would keep happening or this man would get raped daily or that he would bleed to death from his asshole. How do these people not have the same humanity?

What do you think? How do you think this plays into rape culture?

    Dont’ get me wrong, I’m all for getting justice, but nobody ever deserves to be raped, ever. Regardless of who you are, what you’ve done, what sex you are, whatever. The fact that people will excuse rape in any instance is a symptom of rape culture and this needs to be addressed.

    As the saying goes, two wrongs don’t make a right…

    i am sure someone is thinking…”an eye for an eye.” but even that , to me, makes no sense. in a land that has laws and it seems that by the law, he got his justice by going to jail. i am sure, someone let it slip as to why he was in there as it is known that criminals do not like sex criminals and since he is a child molester, that just compounded the issue. humans are cruel beings and history has proven that. to me, for those to cheer about this person being raped is just sad. so very sad and just proves we are far from being a compassionate beings as a whole. i would hope someone expressed their disgust at those comments and if not, that too is sad.

      I did, at the very least. I was in the minority, however.

    Okay, this after days of sleep deprivation and being a parent of a little girl who was raped and, at the end of the day, her abusers walk free. Meanwhile, sure, she wasn’t killed or permanently physically injured (which according to her rapists’ dad makes it all okay!), but we get to deal with nightmares and on going issues that make everyone’s life here a living hell. Her abusers now spend their free time playing video games, eating cupcakes, and hanging out with their friends…who may have younger siblings and whose parents don’t have a clue what they’ve done to another little girl. …

    While I’m not one to wish this upon anyone, my feelings on it are best summed up in an article I read the other day about Karma… Karma isn’t a magical force that seeks justice for those wronged, but rather the consequences of our own actions. An example from the article was a vile woman getting cancer and dying alone because of the way that she treated those around her. In this case, this…man, if you can call him that, committed a horrific crime. The consequence being that he was housed with some horrific people in jail and bad things happened to him. You won’t* find me cheering, but nor will I cry for him.
