I have this habit of reading the morning newspapers on the train ride to work.

And man... today I was so pissed at the world.



Like in Afghanistan, a family is on the newspapers because they refuse to kill/stone their daughter who was gangraped.

Because it's the woman's fault for being GANG RAPED. Not the men's. And everyone wants to kill the girl instead of trying to find out which men raped her and cut their penis off.

And of course in Cairo, (Egypt) yesterday, there was a woman's rights movement march where the women were marching against sexual abuse.

The men on the streets overpowered them and gangraped them in public in the streets for marching against sexual abuse. Because women shouldn't ever speak out like that obviously against men.

Then of course, the cover story for the past two days for the Sandusky trial. It made me sick to the pit to read whatever details were printed on the newspapers. First day was bad enough but whoa...

So the past two days the newspapers have been filled with things that just makes me very angry x.x;;; not the 'best' way to start off the day but I'm also addicted to reading the news now.

Sounds like a bad Hentai doujinshi to me.

It really sucks that other countries put so little value on women and their existence. However, if anyone tries to do anything it will be considered "White Man's Burden" all over again and another war like situation may take place.

Ugh, I hate the fact that stuff like this still happens. It's just sickening and ridiculous. When will the madness ever end....

The world is ridiculous.

The other day I was ranting to friends about all the things girls are taught: don't go out by yourself at night, don't do this, don't do that, or it'll be your own fault if you get raped. We tell girls to do all these things from the time they're little but we never say to boys, "DON'T RAPE PEOPLE."

And we're still the "fortunate" ones because even if we are raped, we have a court system that at least gives the illusion of justice (because most rapists are never even charged, let alone convicted) and we're not going to be killed for besmirching our/our families' honor, etc. Never mind that there's still a stigma and the first thing we'd probably be asked is what we did to deserve it. We're still the "lucky" ones. I can't imagine how horrific it must be to be a woman in some of these other places.

Every time I read news like these ones, I get so pissed off. Makes me wish that I had the power to just go castrate all those men who raped women. >:\

What paper were you reading? I haven't heard anything about mass sexual assault in Egypt lately.

Never mind. Braindead and originally used the term "gangrape" in my search as opposed to the more journalistically favoured "sexual assault."
