ladies & gentlemen. we have a problem.
we have a problem when a p*******e who sexually assaulted a 3 year old child & physically assaulted her mother gets 90 days of jail time.
when a college student, caught raping an unconscious woman in an alley, gets only 6 months of jail time but serves 3. for rape. not for, as his father deemed the assault he perpetrated, “20 minutes of action.” how f*****g revolting. that a grown man would defend his r****t son with that sentence.
this doesn’t even touch on the former frat president of @bayloruniversity, who was just let off for violently raping, and nearly killing, a female student. he will serve no jail time & not even be registered as a s*x offender.
then we come to #cyntoiabrown. a child victim of s*x trafficking. she was sold — sold — to a 43 year old man. sold as a s*x slave. i’ll say it again. sold. modern day slavery & p********a intersect in the grossest way in her case and, like other women in her position, she likely would have died in captivity. but cyntoia, at just 16 yrs old, fought back. she shot the man who purchased her when he tried to r**e her. we have to stop saying “when he attempted to have s*x with her.” a 43 year old man purchased a human being — a 16 year old girl — & tried to r**e her. she was not, as she was labeled in court, “a child prostitute.” there is literally no such thing. she was a minor. she was a victim of s*x trafficking. and she, in the fashion the #2a
folks looooove to praise, fought back. “a good kid with a gun.” she shot her r****t in self-defense. he died. good riddance. and she — the victim — was convicted of m****r & sentenced to life in prison. she will not be eligible for parole for 51 years. this is wrong. the way we talk about victims vs criminals is wrong. it has to stop. no more “what was she wearing,” or “why did she go to the party,” or she was “an underage s*x worker.” no more she “claimed.” start saying “she recounted.” no more “why ruin his future for 20 minutes of action,” start saying “he ruined her life.” no. fucking. more. stop talking about these men like poor lost boys & these women like sirens. enough. #freecyn
