Making a mockery of Rape

The Barry One fiasco was dodged with a legalistic trick of claiming the false charges were some type of pseudonym. There is little doubt of the authors intention when she dropped hints that her rapist was a Conservative. This detail was placed in purely to juice book sales. Making this claim about an encounter with a student activist in La Razza would have drawn all types of media fire. Similarly Rolling Stone is just now discovering the author  of its bizarre rape account made up a fake boyfriend and is apparently a flake.

In the case of Dunham the writing was so poor as to be comedic. I have never seen a man gay or straight wear purple cowboy boots. I am not certain such a product was ever manufactured for the male market. If this detail were correct you might be looking at a little guy who cross dresses. Leaving that last part out, I don't ever recall conservatives wearing such bizarre clothing. They tend to emulate Alex P Keaton. Then again Obama has created such disdain for the left there may even be Goths who are conservative.

I am at a loss as to what a flamboyant mustache is or isn't. Is it a Dali type of mess, a handlebar mess or a Hulk Hogan mess. I had the latter and it grew in redish blonde. It was gone as a Freshman after much humor and complaints. Maybe it is a reference to the stereotype porn mustaches that were referred to in a Seinfeld episode or when Duckys students try to make retro porn.

Add in the booming deep voice and you get a cartoon non person. This many details off leads me to suspect buyers remorse rather than rape. In the UVA case it may be the case of a wallflower leading a dark fantasy life.

Rape is a serious matter that should be treated accordingly. When political garbage is attached the charges become suspect. In the case of Dunham the writing is so poor that her editor should be fired.

You're kidding me. You actually read lena Dunham?

As far as I know there has been no actual charge in the Dunham case. She i indeed trying to sell books. Let me know if a flesh and blood individual has been charged.

In the IVA case I think something vile did happen to that girl. The editor at Rolling Stone seems the culprit here.

Let's see she identified a Conservative named Barry at Oberlin. It took reporters all of six minutes to locate the guy.

Do you find the story credible? How many campus conservatives wear purple cowboy boots and have a flamboyant mustache? This is grade F writing.

In the other case it has become apparent this is a deeply troubled individual. The story appears false.

I make it a point not to pay attention to Lena Dunham. Yeah, the whole thing has a veneer of bu----it.

In the case of UVA, I believe a crime was committed and the magazine crew up, badly.

Let's leave Dunham out.

It is not reasonable to expect the victim of a sexual assault to be the model of mental health.
In this case the victims stability and credibility appear to be dubious.

You can make a story from this. However, discretion and caution might have been more prudent.
