I'm pretty sure that over 50% of the kids in my daughters pre-K class are in single-parent homes

Wait what? 
 
I'm hearing that some of the Steubenville students are complaining that no one explained to them that the behavior could be considered rape or that there could be legal consequences for what they do.

* This is what happens when we constantly tell women how they are responsible for not getting raped.

* This is what happens when much of sex and sexuality is learned through the fiction of tv shows, movies, books, pornography, and the like.

* This is what happens when those media predominately show cases of people taking advantage of those who are unconscious and frame it as "good fun" or "just a joke."

Sure, watching a single movie about robbing a bank might not lead one to rob a bank. But having much of the media we consume portray sexual assault and/or rape as "good fun" or something that women secret want does lead people to commit sexual assault and rape.

Furthermore, we have to get past this myth that only "bad people" commit sexual assault and rape.

It's not so much "too late" as "bad timing." It's like, when someone has just lost a loved one to cancer and in a misguided attempt to comfort that someone you point out that "At least they aren't suffering any more." Sure, that's true, but it's also not that comforting (I speak from ample personal experience). If such observations are ever appropriate, I tend to think they're appropriate once the person who's hurting has worked through some of their grief.

Likewise for the victim of a crime (especially a violent crime), in my opinion the "teachable moment" needs some distance from the crime itself; either before it was committed, or after the victim has had a chance to heal. It's certainly possible to use the experience as a "lesson," but it's only appropriate when the "pupil" is prepared to learn from it, and that is rarely if ever while s/he is still dealing emotionally with the terrible violation s/he has suffered.

Timing is hard, not just for comedians, but for everyone.

Does that make sense?

What I think I'm trying to get through is the idea that we shouldn't add guilt to the burdens the victim is already carrying. That's the consequence of thoughtless blaming/shaming.

I guess empathy is reserved for people we like or are like us. Others just get hate.

So much for religion being the only one with a closed mind

I know the following will get me unfollowed by a lot of people here on Google+ because that is the kind of community that it is.

Now I was going to just let this one go by and not comment, but then I kept seeing the debate out there amongst my fellow bloggers and advocates and thought I would say a little something. First let me start off with a little hard truth.

There are a lot of people, both men and women, that woke up today and realized that they have been guilty of rape in their lives. Statistics indicate that more than a few of them are right here on Google+.
Now let that sink in for a moment.

Apparently very few people care about underage drinking. I am guessing because most are guilty of it themselves. How many people here started drinking heavily at 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, or younger? Let that sink in for a bit. 

Today I have seen many women's advocates trying to have a conversation today about real problems that are occurring with our youth. Instead of actually talking about those topics in a respectfully manner they were attacked and insulted.  

Somewhere along the line a few people got it into their heads that just because someone is not suppose to do bad things means that they will not. Somehow they believe that everyone should be taught their morality standards but they don't have to learn anyone else's.

I am sorry but life does not work that way. People do nothing but take advantage of those that they can and most people don't even see it as wrong. So the idea that you are going to make yourself vulnerable and weak and no one is going to try and take advantage of that is beyond naive.

The cemeteries are filled with people that believe the same thing and there is always room for more. Can you prevent all bad things from happening to you? No. Can you do things to minimize the threat sometimes? Yes.  

I am a firm believer in protect yourself at all times because the only person you can absolutely trust not to hurt you is you. I fear for the people that are not taught this.

This is just the type of weak argumentation, bald assertion, and fairy tale thinking I would expect from a theist.

Forgiveness is one of those horrible myths people cling to.
Your brain can't forgive.  It may forget, eventually, but the experience of which forgiveness is asked will also stick somewhere in one's psyche, part of the "running sum" your mind carries out constantly and that defines your overall assessment of a person or thing.

None of the above.  I Couldn't afford it, and didn't want to take loans out.  

I am doing pretty well for myself considering I do not have any secondary education, but its definitely the exception, not the rule.

I am just going to laugh K Carl Smith and his Frederick Douglass Republicans and not get upset at Scott Terry one bit.
 
Racism in America must be frowned upon publicly and shunned. White supremacists need to be taken out of society and should not be in any form of government.

CPAC Participant Defends Slavery At Minority Outreach Panel: It Gave ‘Food And Shelter’ To Blacks

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland — A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans.

The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?” Several people in the audience cheered and applauded Terry’s outburst.

ThinkProgress spoke with Terry, who sported a Rick Santorum sticker and attended CPAC with a friend who wore a Confederate Flag-emblazoned t-shirt, about his views after the panel. Terry maintained that white people have been “systematically disenfranchised” by federal legislation.
When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.

At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”
