Ahhhhhhhh just took my first few hits. This is good <3
About to get my dayburn on. Anyone around the central Jersey area interested in smoking?
A sixteen year old’s life has been ruined. But it’s not Mays or Richmond.
Call CNN and change this. 404-827-1500, select Option 1. You will be connected to someone looking for Breaking News. Explain that you would like to speak about the case of the two 16 year-old rapists, and how the news station is focusing on them, labeling them as the victims, and not saying a single word about the ACTUAL victim.
I called and was able to speak with an actual person about this. After hearing what I had to say, he replied “Okay, let me get you the correct extension.” This then brought me to a voicemail system, where I explained my concerns about their story a second time.
One thing I said, and I hope that perhaps people will repeat, is that “These two 16 year old boys are not the victims in this situation. They are the perpetrators. They are not victims, they created a victim.”
I just called the number a second time, again going to Option 1. I told the person who answered that I did indeed have an update to the Steubenville rape case, and that they were actually missing half of the story. Again I used the term “they created a victim.”
What I told them was that while they were spending a lot of time talking about how good of students these boys were and how they were such great football players, there was a victim in this story who was not them. I said that the girl in question was now very probably going to experience depression, disconnection, numbness, could very probably have trouble in future relationships… basically I read off a list of symptoms of post-rape trauma.
Again, they connected me to a voicemail box, where I repeated this list. I think people should try to make calls like these. Find a list of rape trauma symptoms and tell CNN about it. Maybe, maybe we’ll get a more realistic news story.
It was, however, meant to signify the start of a new cycle. Just as the season changes four times a year, the Mayans predicted a change in the human experience. Hellfire has nothing to do with it. If there are to be changes, which I believe there will be, they will start out subtle. A few leaves will start to change color, if you take my meaning. Soon, however, all the trees will be bright, new colors. The air will be crisp. Our tastes will begin to change and the shift to fall will be undeniable.
This is what the prediction was about. Not the end of the world, just the next part of the experience.
Pass it on.
