Rolling Stone UVa Gang Rape Hoax Is Hoax

   In case anyone anywhere still has any doubts about that.
   But nobody does...right?
   Shakesville still does...  In fact, at one point, they declared that no matter what your reasons, if you doubted "Jackie" you were a misogynistic, rape-apologistic, rapey, rapey, rapist.
   Even Amanda Marcotte eventually, grudgingly gestured at a recognition that it was all lies, didn't she? Or am I misremembering?
   Lots of people got mad at me for pointing out early on that Jackie's story was false. So I'm just going to take another victory lap and point out one more time that I was right and they were wrong. In fact, the lesson of all of this is that rape crisis hysteria is a huge problem on campuses and in many sectors of the internet. Which is, for the love of God, in no way to deny that rape itself is also an enormous problem. It's not to mention rape nor say anything about it at all.

Man, the comment thread is almost worse than the post; a downright cultish devotion to the talking points of rape crisis feminism and fawning adoration for the priest-like moderators (for taking on the horrifying task of dealing with "rape apologists" so the cultists don't have to do so, themselves).

It's just crazy.

I wanted to simply post on the comment thread, "So, here's a question: what amount of evidence would suffice such that, if presented, you would no longer believe Jackie was raped?"

But, of course, the comment thread is closed. THE GLORIOUS LEADERS HAVE SPOKEN. The underlings shall now retreat to the confines of their living spaces and repeat their assigned mantra silently to themselves 100,000 times: #rapeculture.

Jebus, you're right.

I hadn't looked at them. Then I went back and read some and was going to post one to make fun of it...but they were all so awful that I basically just fled.

The stupid is strong in them.

So you've finally given up pursuing the white whale, Capt'n Ahab?

I can't even tell what you're trying to say half the time anymore, TVDA...

Is this more white-knighting for Marcotte?

You think that pointing out your obsession with her position on this incident is "white-knighting"? I mean, it was pretty clear from the beginning that whatever position she took on this issue wouldn't satisfy you, and now, to borrow from an ancient fable, the grapes are sour.

Anyway, seaman, sharpen your harpoons for another target, steady on your feet, and, when the time comes, make a good throw of it.

I know any criticism of your gf makes you crazy,'ve made that perfectly clear over and over and over and over again...

You should make a *Leave Mandy Alone!* video

But nobody's buying that your obsession is my obsession. Marcotte is a dogmatic idiot. She was nuts about the Duke lacrosse case and nuts about the UVa rape hoax, too. In both cases she seems to have eventually managed to squeak out a strangled hemi-demi-semi-admission that there wasn't a rape...or did she?...maybe not, now that I think of it...but that's weak gruel in the face of being so astonishingly, dogmatically, full-throatedly, incontrovertible *wrong*...

Yet again, here's part of her freak out *after the charges were dismissed* against the Duke lacrosse players:

"Slamming CNN as "pure evil," Marcotte vented her outrage at having to "listen to how the poor dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and f***ed her against her will," and concluded sarcastically, "Can't a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair." "

Your girlfriend's a nut, man.

Gee, Winston baby, if I thought a square cat like you could get Mandy in any kind of trouble, my old lady would tell me to put away the bong.

Groovy, man. Refute the charges, Sir Lancelot... cough up the quotes where your beloved clearly admits she was wrong about Duke and UVa.

I'd be happy to see 'em.
