bored with you, go back to your ghetto neighborhood with its super duper ghetto targets that only carry one type of arizona ice tea and be super hardcore with your totally not racist or mainstream friends.
Are you even aware of the racist and classist connotations of the word ‘ghetto’ or do you think you get a free pass?
Suffice it to say there is not a trigger warning in the world big enough for this (I’m not a survivor of sexual abuse myself and this made me cry and feel sick to my stomach) but Reddit has a massive thread where men admit to being rapists and describe their crimes, and Jezebel has a post about how important it is to read this so we can “understand” their motives, as though every message sent out in the world isn’t trying to justify and explain away rape and abuse already
Also I hate this fucking culture of like, compulsory forgiveness
No one has a “right to be forgiven” for ANYTHING, especially not raping or otherwise physically abusing someone, and some random uninvolved third party isn’t the person in a position to grant that forgiveness anyway, I don’t care how remorseful they are, and if their “remorse” takes the form of anonymously whining on the internet instead of turning themselves over to authorities or, better yet, killing themselves, then it’s worthless and not genuine at all
When the London games officially launch July 27, Bob Costas will stage his own protest of what he calls a “baffling” decision: the NBC sportscaster plans to call out the International Olympic Committee for denying Israel’s request for a moment of silence acknowledging the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches at the 1972 Games.
“I intend to note that the IOC denied the request,” he tells THR. “Many people find that denial more than puzzling but insensitive. Here’s a minute of silence right now.”
Costas intends to make his remarks during the Olympics’ Opening Ceremony, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Munich massacre, when the Israeli delegation enters the 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium.
