too angry for subject lines  
Look, world. I can't be angry all the time. Do you think you could maybe suck a little less? I'm not even talking major, mind-bending ways here. Just--maybe not saying that a woman agreed to be exposed and filmed because she was having a good time at a party? Do you think that we could have a break, and you could not just reproduce pages out of the Rape Is Totally Okay If We Decide You're a Slut playbook?

I mean, ffs. The jury foreman actually says "She knew what she was doing." How is that even possible???

I am speechless. I guess we're back to the days when wearing red underwear, even if no one sees it is implied consent. What a Cluster -F!

Nothing brings out our hypocrisy more than determining what implies sexual consent.

I can't even wrap my mind around this--that a woman who never signed a consent form and is even HEARD saying 'no' still, apparently, has no right to decide how her own body should be treated.
