Yesterday, in Rio de Janeiro, a seventeen year-old was drugged and raped by 30 men. Yes, that number is right. Thirty men raped a girl. They also filmed her while she was unconscious, hurt and bleeding, and posted it to twitter. They took selfies next to her inert body, posted them, laughed and made crude jokes about it.
If you try to find any reports on it, you’ll find ONE website reported it but treats the case as an ‘alleged’ rape. There are videos and pictures. Alleged rape.
I am yet to see ANY of the men I have on Facebook say something about it. So far, the only ones showing any kind of response to it are women. We are all disgusted, sad, angry, and feeling utterly powerless because we know that in our country, rape culture is still widely accepted and propagated. We feel defeated, but we will not stop fighting. We can’t.
CNN has reported on this.
