What do you mean "regret sex decisions"?

She was so entirely unconscious she couldn't MAKE decision. How can she regret a decision she didn't make?

I don't buy into the "too drunk to say no" bit. Don't get that drunk then. My friend got drunk, fell off a roof and broke his arm, did he blame the friend he was walking home with? No, he blamed his own stupid ass. Take some accountability for your actions.

*not necesarily talking about the steubenville trial, i dont know the specifics, but i heard it was filmed. i'm just talking about the defense in general*

Dude, I agree with what you're saying in principal, but it's pretty insensitive to bring it up in this context. She wasn't "too drunk to say no" she was "too unconscious to say anything at all." They literally carried her out of that party to rape her, then the town covered it up because the guys were on the football team. Now people are talking about how those boys' lives are ruined forever, as if by some youthful indiscretion like shoplifting.

Those boys raped that girl - the poor thing is probably going through an unbelievable amount of trauma. Do you think she'll ever be able to trust anyone again? Do you think she'll be able to function normally in large social situations? I hope so, but it seems so unlikely. The media's portrayal of the course of events has been shallow at best, and dangerously misogynist.

Now's not the time for us to talk about the finer points of Rape legislation. Now is the time for us to come together as a community and let this girl know that she did nothing wrong. This is not her fault. The boys that perpetrated this against her were morally bankrupt individuals who are getting off light being tried as minors. She has not robbed them of their future, they have robbed her of her innocence. And we, as a society must not tolerate it.

The media is saying things like "Their lives are ruined forever because they were sentenced!! These poor boys!" I say they ruined their own lives. You don't rape an unconscious girl at a party, take pictures of it and pass it down to your buddies. Yeah, they were underaged drinking but you should never do that to another person. Just because a girl gets drunk doesn't mean she's asking to be raped. Your parents and town shouldn't cover it up because of your athletic record. To the person who made this post I salute you.

As far as I can tell from what i've been able to find on the internet, and correct me if I'm wrong, she was drunk and they had sex with her; I didn't read any reports of physical force, or the use of drugs with the intention to get her to the point where she didn't know what she was doing. If that were to happen to a male, no one would care, even if it costed him his relationship, or in a case of older people his marriage home and kids. She made the decision to get drunk when she was sober knowing it may impair her judgement, therefore she should be responsible for her actions, the same way a sober person may know better than to drive drunk, but if he gets drunk and kills someone, he is responsible. If having sex with a drunk girl (that consents it at the time) is considered rape because she didn't know what she was doing or was impaired, then drunk drivers should not be held responsible for their actions because they were also impaired and unable to make the right decision

I completely agree that, if under the influence a girl has sex and, later regretting it, calls rape it is wrong. I also agree that a women who is inebriated of her own choice, that is lured into bed with a man, should not be able to say it's rape with the singular only statement of, "I didn't say yes". However, in this circumstance, "Jane Doe" wasn't being a "loose woman". She didn't lead these boys on or get so hog drunk that she crawled into bed with them. Her intoxication was out of her control because she was slipped drugs. At that point she had no chance of saying no. Those boys took away her chance to say no and that is why this is considered a rape case.

If we had a few exceedingly gruesome public executions this kind of **** wouldn't happen anymore.

That's why we know rape was never a problem in the middle ages when such gruesome murders were commonplace. Nope, never an issue

the cnn petition is such a joke.

they didnt lie or do anything wrong, all they did was sympathize that the two boys lives were ruined. this is a fair point as they are.

yet everyone gets all pissy about it that they *gasp* had another opinion on it in the country of free speech, then everyone is up in arms demanding an apology which gets 175k signatures.

then it comes to something important and its a whole other story.

thumb me down all you want.

There are no exigent circumstances that excuse rape.

I thought this was a good article about it: ville-20130318-2gaxy.html

They acted like complete dickheads and now they're going to face the consequences of it. Maybe next time they'll think twice.

dumb kids. Shouldn't have taken pics. Would have walked away no jail time
User avatar #52 - ninjastarthrow (03/20/2013) [+] (3 replies)
Man this is ******** , those kids should be going to jail for rape and they all should be feeling the heat for underage drinking. If I was that girls father sure I'd be pissed that those assholes raped her while she was passed out but I'd still be pissed at her for drinking at 16. I wouldn't let her off the hook. She would be punished after those boys were dealt with. I think it's total horse **** that she's getting called a slut and a whore and getting death threats for something she didn't have a lot of control over. Sure she shouldn't have been drinking, but at the same time those boys shouldn't have raped her. Why is she the whore? Why aren't they rapists? It's not like they were drugged and forced to rape her. They all should get ****** by the long dick of the law. Those boys and the girl. She shouldn't have been drinking and they shouldn't have taken advantage of her like that. What is wrong with our society? Why didn't someone stop it and take her home? Honestly I would have...

Theres numerous stories of women sleeping with men then turning around later and saying they raped em.
User avatar #56 to #35 - fappingniggers (03/20/2013) [-]
Women claiming rape isn't the issue here. The issue is multiple teenage boys took advantage of a girl that was unconscious. Yes, she did drink, but I doubt she was planning on passing out and getting violated.

The boys dragged her around to different parties, raping her at each one, and also in the car while going to these parties. They assumed she was dead, left her stranded, and even mocked her in a twelve minute video they recorded RIGHT AFTER they had brutally violated her. These boys should have gotten a worse punishment, because they got off fairly easy for what they have done.

ok yes i know that the girl was drunk and unconscious and i do believe the guys are getting whats coming to them but i really hope someone gives, all the kids involved, **** for drinking in the first place. i mean yeah it is some what her fault cause if she wasn't drinking in the first place then that wouldn't of happened.

Or except for the part drinking doesn't imply getting so drunk you can barely comprehend what's going on around you. Besides, the rate of girls getting 'raped' to girls that don't get raped when they get black-out drunk are pretty skewed to the latter. So frankly, if she was just really drunk, then it's not rape with consent. BUT, because she was UNCONCIOUS, then it is indeed rape, and they deserve to be charged.

Seeing how ignorant most comments on all rape related content is, i really wish feminism was more alive today.
but just felt the need to share this: Rapists should be disarmed :)
#37 - Absolute Madman (03/20/2013) [-]
Truth be told, I waiting for the other charges to set it, like underage drinking for the girl and the other people at the party. Then watch the rage people do like "She was raped! She doesn't deserve those charges."
