The War Zone and The Sanctuary

A blog run by a Liberal Feminist woman who adores Music and all other Art in any form. Actually, she loves just about everything from Science to British comedy. But - she is pissed off with the Current Administration and all their Right Wing ideology and is compelled to fight their reign by setting up...A Blog ( ta da! ). All malice aside, this woman is most happy when she is surrounded by intelligent thought and witty conversation.

Absurdity


Well, this post over at HuffPo is interesting, to say the least. Michael Smerconish has decided that the the real victims of the Duke rape case are...get this...the lacrosse players who were accused of the rape! Those poor, rich, privileged white boys. Oh, the inhumanity!

To be fair, Smerconish points out a valid point - the media has overblown this case. I won't agree that it was overblown, but the media is indeed fickle in her ways and promotes mass hysteria and fear - yes, the media loves a story. But Smerconish goes so far to say that virtually all cries of rape are false and that the women who were assaulted or raped in such cases were asking for it. What a bastard. Not a feminist, I'm sure.

Go over there and tell him what you think of his post. I did.
