I get a kick out of dudes who are all distraught over this, saying crap about how this is a travesty. "This is an outrage. You should be ashamed of yourself." says one passerby, offering his dudely opinion during an interview with DePape, of which he was no part of. These are the same dudes, mind you, who are all "Freedom of speech!!!" when anyone gets close to their pornography, or their strip clubs or cracking down on Johns or saying that, you know, women should be conscious to provide consent throughout sexual activity and whatnot. And these dudes say this shit without a hint of irony. I just don't get it. Where are your fucking priorities, people? What the fuck is wrong with you? This is your country too! Do all you dudes out there hate women that much that all you care about is humiliating, raping, beating and killing them for your gratification at the expense of everything else? Are your sick porno fantasies so dear to you that you'll fight tooth and nail for them, but not for an egalitarian society where everything will be better for everyone?
Fact is, this kid is fighting for that egalitarian society, for AND in spite of dudes that would see her abused and dead. That's REAL bravery, just as much as it took to stand there and wage her protest in the House. This kid is a hero, not just for what she did, but for what she has to believe in to do it. She believes that we deserve better, that we can do better, if we all band together and demand a government that will put us as a populace ahead of their own selfish interests. That womens' rights and environmental care will take us into the future over financing weapons of war and big business. Can we afford to let her message go unheard and unregarded? Can we as a society afford NOT to wake up and start seeing our similarities instead of our differences? Can men stop killing women in the name of their sick sexual gratification so we can get some fucking work done and save this country we're in? This kid thinks so. Do YOU want to let a young activist down? I don't.
