Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”"
A woman armed with an iron rod beat to death a man who raped her five-year-old daughter in Jharkhand, police said Monday.
On one hand, I’m not going to advocate vigilante justice.
On the other…. I can’t honestly say I’d do any different if I were that mother.
She also surrendered to the police on her own. That says a lot of things about her strong character and the law enforcement system. She didn’t trust it to give her justice, but she recognized its authority. I wonder what her sentence is going to be/what will happen to her daughter if she goes to jail…
Most of the time, in cases like this, the parent sees little to no time in prison. Hopefully this will be the case. Ughhhh…. my heart breaks for her and for her little girl.
I hate the idea of vigilante justice but honestly I probably would do the same in her situation and the fact that she did then turn herself over to police shows she did understand and know fully that it wasn’t necessarily the right thing to do… I think it probably was just the only thing she could do to protect her daughter.
I have a serious problem with this for numerous reasons.
On one hand, yeah, i get the emotional response the mother had, I understand that she probably thought it was the best course of action.
But on the other, there are SO many ways this form of vigilante justice can and does go wrong if not punished severely enough to deter repeats.
I know 3 stories off the top of my head of people killing men falsely accused of rape. The fake rape wasn’t even reported to the police, just spread around by word of mouth. These are innocent men that were killed for absolutely no reason. A tragic waste of life.
Secondly, if the person acting as the vigilante didn’t have first hand experience of the rapist (haven’t seen them up close and cant easily identify them) then you’re just asking for cases of mistaken identity and murder of the wrong person. A whole police department can falsely convict someone, let alone one angry, emotional vigilante.
And thirdly, it’s just the goddamn principle of the thing. Just because a case is sympathetic doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Justice is supposed to be blind and unfeeling, yet this woman will probably get barely more than a slap on the wrist. Maybe a few years in jail. It doesn’t matter who the victim is: murder is murder is murder.
Overall, I hope that this woman faces the fullest extent of the law. But I know that she won’t.
what the fuck is wrong with you people?? this man raped her 5 year old daughter and she’s just supposed to sit back and wait for him to get a trial and be convicted? and you choose this time to talk about men accused of false rape?! this is disgusting and i can’t believe you would take the side of predatory men over a woman who (rightfully) attacked the man who raped her child
"vigilante justice" shut the fuck up
"I hate the idea of vigilante justice" you all morally bankrupt pieces of shit can kill yourselves

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
