Title: 16 year old girl threatened with rape for challenging Bachmann.

Quote
The reaction to Myers’ letter has been nothing short of terrifying.

“A lot of them are calling me a whore,” Myers said of anonymous. Amy and her father said the comments from conservative websites alarmed them most. Some commenters threatened to publish her home address. Others threatened violence. Some threatened rape.

Because she criticized the Tea Party goddess.

“They’re targeting me just because I’m challenging Bachmann,” Amy said.

It doesn’t matter that Bachmann won’t debate her. Nor are the facts pointed to by Myers important. It doesn’t matter that Bachmann, the Tea Party’s alleged constitutional expert is wrong about the constitution and that a 16-year-old high school student is right. What matters is that you can’t criticize the Tea Party.

Creepy! These people have never heard of the moral high ground, apparently, and if they have they seem to have an aversion to standing on it.

Judging from what I regularly read on far right blogs I'm not particularly surprised by this.
In my none-expert opinion she doesn't really have anything to fear from assholes on the Internet (and this is going to sound very cynical) for the simple fact she's white and probably non-Muslim.

And to attack her, rightwing bloggers would have to leave their basements or, when they do, soup up their Rascals so they can speed up to catch a 16 year old girl.

Can anybody find the article in question on cnn.com? I'd like to take a peek at the comments. I suspect they're not that startling relative to other vitriol in the blogosphere. I do like the tactic though - get a 16 year old girl to be the mouth piece for an incendiary diatribe, so people who retaliate in the expected way will look like total jerkwads.

Does that excuse said jerkwads?  I mean, even IF she was put up to this (God knows nobody has a political thought before age 30), does that mean their actions were excusable, therefore this is all her own fault?

Because if it's suddenly okay to do shit like this to people who disagree with you, I'm going to make life a living hell for the teabagger across the road, and sleep like a baby.

It's easy, really.  We just assume that this was all engineered by some shadowy lefty group, and this poor girl was the bait. 

This has the added benefit of reminding people to keep their mouths shut & get back to work.

Who's excusing anybody? I'm just surprised that people being assholes on the internet is even news. Internet comments are cheap and people say the most vile shit possible when they're anonymous... But if the person they're responding to is 16, you have the opportunity to GET OUTRAGED AND MAN THE HARPOONS. If being 16 really shields you from assholes, then we should all being posting as 16 year old girls.  :lol:

It's interesting .. we've seen a few stories like this in the last year, haven't we? Jessi Slaughter and Rebecca Black come to mind. It's like we haven't collectively established the appropriate response for a child being super annoying on the internet.

I agree that it's badwrong to troll kids, especially threaten them with violence. I also think that regardless of age, when you post something controversial on the net, you should be prepared for the fallout. (please do not read that as excusing people for being rude to kids) People were real jerks to Jessi Slaughter, but on the other side of the coin, she also shouldn't have told anonymous that she was going to "pop a glock in your mouth and make a brain slushee." This is why I wish there was a course in elementary schools about how to use the Internet and how to relate to the Internet.

A 16 year old attempting to take part in the political process is the same as Rebecca Black?

Well, here's the payoff:  She won't do it again, will she?  Lesson learned.  Open your mouth, live in fear.

Reference was to a wild rumor that Rebecca Black (who is, IIRC, 13) is pregnant, with all the assorted name-calling that would bring out in the uptight.

And I hope this is a lesson to all the other 16 year olds out there:

Shut up.  Don't get involved.  Keep your head down...The nail that sticks up gets the hammer.

Because that's what America™ is all about, and I - for one - applaud this.  We don't need random citizens jamming their stupid faces in our government, do we?  No, we elected them, and they can do whatever they want, and shouldn't have to take any guff from some pimple-faced retard who just took a "civics" class.

Right

and if I hold up a megaphone announcing my intent to rape each and every one of you, I should reasonably expect to receive a response in kind.

The issue is that members of the Tea Party are openly using threats of violence to quell opposing political opinions.

that's what I'm talking about. We're going to see this happen a bunch more in the coming year, with increasing degrees of support or outrage depending on whether the kid annoyed us personally. There will even be a short-hand slang word for this phenomenon. But I think that's still a few months off.


By the way, this article is not about the girl getting trolled, the point of the article is to make you say "Supporters of Michelle Bachmann are would-be child rapists."

We're not talking about people being garden-variety mean on the internet. We're talking about people threatening a child with rape because she wrote a letter they disagree with.

This *is* garden variety mean for any woman who manages to get the attention of the wrong parts of the internet.  Men can expect death threats instead.  The problem is a lot deeper than the politics.

I would rather get rape threats. Please include recent photos and a short bio.

It's not about the type or severity of the threat. It's about the context which elicited the threat. Physical threats are being used increasingly as a political silencer.

Horseshit. We aren't talking about "the wrong parts of the internet". We're talking about political bloggers. People who, in theory, should be held to a higher standard than a youtube comment thread. It's a good thing that there isn't a history of violence associated with the Tea Party.... oh wait...

It's interesting .. we've seen a few stories like this in the last year, haven't we? Jessi Slaughter and Rebecca Black come to mind. It's like we haven't collectively established the appropriate response for a child being super annoying on the internet.

I agree that it's badwrong to troll kids, especially threaten them with violence. I also think that regardless of age, when you post something controversial on the net, you should be prepared for the fallout. (please do not read that as excusing people for being rude to kids) People were real jerks to Jessi Slaughter, but on the other side of the coin, she also shouldn't have told anonymous that she was going to "pop a glock in your mouth and make a brain slushee." This is why I wish there was a course in elementary schools about how to use the Internet and how to relate to the Internet.



@Nigel: I did not say we shouldn't criticize or condemn people


Wait are you saying, kid's aside, women who can't handle death and rape threats shouldn't post anything political, or anything of that matter, online?

I don't see where this interpretation of Cram's posts are coming from. Cram is examining the emergent phenomena of this child getting huge amounts of attention from a certain slice of the internet population, and comparing it to similar emergent phenomena (Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife!). That the attention is negative, and definitely undeserved, Cram takes as a given. But, "A Conclusion is simple where you stopped thinking" etc etc. He's looking for interesting patterns _below_ the level of "fuck those guys for messing with a 16yr old".

He's looking for trends, and therefore has to be slightly emotionally un-invested WHILE DOING THAT. That many of you read this as possible callousness is interesting.

That it has now become "acceptable" within certain circles to threaten a child with rape to shut her up and intimidate others from speaking their political views.

Child wrote a letter to a politician.

child's father posted letter on cnn.com

where it would be x-posted on tea-party blogs and forums and receive comments and criticisms

some of those comments and criticisms were badwrong, but you have to expect that's going to happen when you communicate via mass media.

I'm not saying that people should live in fear of harsh feedback, I'm saying that when you hold up a megaphone, you should be prepared for people to shout back too



Sure.  She only got what she deserved.  2/3rds do, sooner or later.

And like I said, this will be one - two, actually - people who will learn to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP, and that's what we're all about, here in The Church™ and in America™.

Or she'll learn to stand firm for her beliefs no matter what. 

Sure she will.  Until these bastards post her fucking home address, and she and her family get hounded non-fucking stop (one of the threats, and the one most likely to be carried out).

But that's okay, right?  Because she will have clung to her beliefs as her family spends the next fucking 10 years in a fortress fucking mentality.

It's so simple.  Why didn't I see that?

Yep. That's really what this is about, IMO; the very disturbing trend for certain groups to neither denounce nor shun those of their own who use tactics that previously, almost everyone wanted to distance themselves from.

Importantly, this is the teaparty, who are quick as can be to censor people they disagreee with, whether in blogs or forums.

They can't claim this is because they are opposed to censorship, or supporting free speech or anything of the sort.

They do not censor this because they support this particular speech.

Which is not OK no matter what the scenario, but "general public random asswipe" is one thing, "speaking for my political party" is another.

By a 17 year old now
http://www.religiondispatches.org/dispatches/laurilebo/4675/hey_michele_bachmann%2C_i_got_your_nobel_laureates_right_here/
Maybe after a few years she'll actually get called out by someone her own age.
Quote
This week, 17-year-old Baton Rouge high school student Zack Kopplin called on Bachmann to back up her statement from 2006 in which she said lots of Nobel Prize winners support intelligent design.

Exhibit B: "There is a controversy among scientists about whether evolution is a fact… hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel prizes, believe in intelligent design."

Kopplin is leading a charge to repeal the Louisiana Science Education Act, an anti-evolution law that would sneak the teaching of creationism into science class. I've analyzed the purpose of the law here.

What's really cool about Kopplin’s campaign is that he has lined up support for the repeal from 43 Nobel Laureates.

So Kopplin, in an open letter on his web site Wednesday, basically said, "I've shown mine, now you, Congresswoman Bachmann, show me yours."

He writes:

    Does Congresswoman Bachmann really think the public will fall for her sleight of hand and believe she has Nobel Laureate scientists who support these unscientific theories?

    Congresswoman Bachmann, I see your "hundreds" of scientists, and raise you millions of scientists.

    For the next hand, I raise you 43 Nobel Laureate scientists.  That's right: 43 Nobel Laureate scientists have endorsed our effort to repeal Louisiana's creationism law.

    Major science organizations, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which represents over 10 million scientists, have publicly endorsed the repeal.

    Congresswoman Bachmann, you claim that Nobel Laureates support creationism.  Show me your hand. If you want to be taken seriously by voters while you run for President, back up your claims with facts. Can you match 43 Nobel Laureates, or do you fold?

Kopplin is testifying before Louisiana lawmakers today urging them to repeal the Louisiana Science Education Act.

4) Fowler's parents have cut off his financial support, kicked him out of the house, and thrown his belongings onto the porch.

Let's be very, very clear about this one. At a time when their son was being bullied, threatened, publicly pilloried, and ostracized from his school and his community, his parents joined the party. Their initial response was to hold him in their house against his will, take his cell phone and cut off his contact with the outside world, and even cut him off from contact with his older brother, Jerrett. Their more recent response has been to cut off financial support, kick him out of the house, and throw his belongings onto the porch.

Fortunately, Damon isn't entirely alone. His brother Jerrett is bringing Damon into his own home in Texas, and will help put him through college. And Damon is fortunate enough to have the backing of the atheist community, who are providing encouragement, emotional support, practical assistance, and even a scholarship fund.

It's interesting .. we've seen a few stories like this in the last year, haven't we? Jessi Slaughter and Rebecca Black come to mind. It's like we haven't collectively established the appropriate response for a child being super annoying on the internet.

Wait.

A 16 year old attempting to take part in the political process is the same as Rebecca Black?


Well, all three of them stories follow a kind of "young woman does something; gets threatened with rape" trend.

This merely confirms my present opinion of humans.

Lies, you are a fucking idiot. Go blow yourself up, you shitstain.
 
Short skirts and cleavage don't magically make rapists out of honest men. A rapist is looking for a victim in a vulnerable situation, regardless of her clothing. It's not the appearance of the woman that tantalizes the rapist mentality; it's the power itself, the victimization. This is why old and fat and ugly women get raped as well as young thin pretty ones. The rapist doesn't care.

Isn't this very close to the Islam creed that men are simply children and can't be held responsible for what they do when a woman shows an ankle? After all, it's always the womans fault.

Yeah, basically. That kind of thinking shows a level of contempt for honest men, IMO. Men don't get "tempted" into rape, and the rapist isn't looking for a "slut" (if he was, he would just go pick a girl up... but it's not about a woman putting out, it's about force) he's looking for a victim who won't fight back or run away.

So, yeah, it makes sense to wear shoes you can run in and not heels, if you're out alone. And it's important to look confident and strong. Unimportant; whether your outfit is "slutty". Because the rapist is already a rapist; you are neither going to tempt nor deter him by looking hot.

Once you start thinking about "dressing defensively", it's not a very far slide to the burkha.

Unless "dressing defensively" means "a Bowie knife strapped to your leg under the skirt".

Or, as you point out, in the pocket of your parka, as it doesn't really matter how you're dressed.

Oh, and anyone who argues that "looking slutty" (which is completely subjective BTW) is more likely to make you a target for a rapist obviously hasn't read ANY of the very large and accessible quantity of psychology research on rapists, how they  think, and how they choose their victims.

Look it up, morons. "Common sense" my fucking ass. You wouldn't know common sense if it raped you in the ass, Lies.

I've said it before, and I just posted it in that thread, but I always wonder what motivates people to present a strong opinion on something, especially something like rape, that they clearly don't know much about and haven't researched at all. Even the barest minimum of research would reveal to Lies (or the author of the article he posted) why the way you dress is fairly irrelevant to the rapist's victim selection. But he can't be bothered to do that research before forming and broadcasting his strong opinion, and even if he did it... what do you want to bet he would choose not to believe it?
That kind of ignorance is exactly what we make fun of Tea Partiers for.  :lol:

And scientists in Japan have observed that the butterflies have a simple way to avoid the unwanted attention of persistent males; they close their wings.

By folding away their bright, striking wing patterns, the females make themselves less visible to males.

that's what I'm talking about. We're going to see this happen a bunch more in the coming year, with increasing degrees of support or outrage depending on whether the kid annoyed us personally. There will even be a short-hand slang word for this phenomenon. But I think that's still a few months off.


By the way, this article is not about the girl getting trolled, the point of the article is to make you say "Supporters of Michelle Bachmann are would-be child rapists."

We're not talking about people being garden-variety mean on the internet. We're talking about people threatening a child with rape because she wrote a letter they disagree with.

This *is* garden variety mean for any woman who manages to get the attention of the wrong parts of the internet.  Men can expect death threats instead.  The problem is a lot deeper than the politics.
Horseshit. We aren't talking about "the wrong parts of the internet". We're talking about political bloggers. People who, in theory, should be held to a higher standard than a youtube comment thread. It's a good thing that there isn't a history of violence associated with the Tea Party.... oh wait...

Wait, you think that political bloggers are held to some standard of ethics?

They're just the 21st century first-world version of mentally ill homeless people screaming prophecy from the seedy streetcorners.

I can't believe that anybody is either surprised OR shocked by this.

FFS, Requia is actually RIGHT. My world has been turned on its ear. This girl (and everyone else who wants to get along in The Future) had better sack the fuck up. This world is no place for the squeamish or the righteous.
