As seen at that bastion of journalistic integrity, the Sydney Morning Herald:
A 13-year-old girl who was violated by seven teenage boys – some of them dressed in school uniforms – was told to “smile like you’re enjoying it” as they took turns with her in a public toilet cubicle, a court heard today.
The girl had vaginal and oral sex in several different Sydney locations with the boys in acts that one teenager taped on his mobile phone and later sent to his friends.
THE WORD YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS RAPE. THE WORD YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS RAPE. THE WORD YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS RAPE.
And please, let’s not even start with the “but LEGALLY they haven’t been convicted so they can’t actually CALL it rape, you’re just overreacting!!!” bullshit, because the victim? The RAPE victim? Is 13 years old. And was RAPED.
Congratulations, Harriet Alexander and the Sydney Morning Herald: you’re Officially Scum
And completing the quinella of idiocy, Greer McDonald of The Dominion Post:
A 25-year-old shearer, who forced a Dutch backpacker to watch a sexual attack on his girlfriend, pleaded guilty to nine charges in Invercargill District Court last week.
Yes, Greer. The real crime that took place here is that the man was forced to watch his girlfriend being sexually assaulted. And Dutch tourists are totally cancelling their trips to New Zealand because they, too, fear being forced to watch other people being sexually assaulted.
I mean, the real victim here is obviously the male backpacker! Think of the assault committed against his masculinity, watching another man taking liberties with his property girlfriend.
And that’s obviously the story that’s going to grab the audience’s attention, right? Because let’s face it, who cares if another woman was subjected to a sex attack? Bitch was probably asking for it, driving her stationwagon like a whore in her tramping gear.
Greer McDonald? You’re also Officially Scum.
And what the fuck with both of these stories being by female journos? Huh?
