is that this nerd beats the shit out of a jock because he's attempting to force himself on a girl that is very intoxicated. I've done it twice, once in High School and once in College and I'd do it again if I had to.

On of the more horrifying things about Steubenville rape case is that nobody spoke up. Nobody.

(A disclaimer, take care of yourself- if you can stop this kind of crime without violence--- great, because I hate to see you get in trouble for doing the right thing, or as right as time allows)

is that women cannot move about as freely as men. They should be able to go anywhere, at any time, and not have to worry about having their bodies and lives violated.
