There’s been a lot of good coverage on the horrid case in which several men raped two girls in Trenton, NJ. My problem is with the mainstream coverage, which insists on viewing this as the case of a 15 year old girl pimping her 7 year old sister to a bunch of paying clients.
No: this is the case of a bunch of psychopathic, remorseless creatures who don’t qualify as human raping two little girls. The men have been conveniently (for them) absent from the coverage. It’s as if they were just props on hand in the 15 year old’s drama. It’s like they had no free will. Like they had no responsibility to say, “I can’t do something like this and still live with myself” and walk away. Like trained fighting pit bulls, they aren’t at fault – it’s that vicious, sadistic person who set up the situation who’s at fault.
This is exactly why the patriarch teaches us early in life: men are naturally violent and it’s up to women to control them, yet they are our superiors. Without being conditioned to believe that, you might find yourself thinking the men are the cause of this sexual assault – or that women should run your country. And those ideas aren’t compatible with a successful patriarchy, now, are they?
New Jersey has tellingly decided to charge the men with statutory rape, since the 15 year old gave “consent” she’s not legally old enough to give, but also to try her as an adult for her role in the assault on her sister. This is a sad commentary on the narcissism of the NJ personnel responsible for this decision. You can’t be old enough to be tried as an adult but too young to agree to sex.
I personally have no doubt the 15 year old girl has been a victim of something. While many kids make all sorts of startlingly stupid mistakes, it’s actually not that easy to raise a girl who behaves as this one did. It’s also not that easy to raise men like these. Some abuse and/or extremely bad conditioning occurred along the way for her. It’s unfortunate that abuse got passed onto her sister, but the odds are the sister was going to be exposed to the same shit sooner or later.
I hope both of these girls get the help they need. But with NJ charging the older girl as an adult, that’s unlikely to happen. She’ll probably die in prison, since prisoners tend to prey on child molesters. Instead of focusing on the girls, the only victims in this scenario, let’s focus on:
- The creatures who did this.
- The press who doesn’t care if it revictimizes these victims all over again, so long as it gets the most sensational version of this story.
- The entire American culture, which is so disconnected from its sense of community that most of us accept this press coverage. It’s entertainment, after all.
- The self-involved, empathy-free politicians in NJ who, concerned no doubt with re-election and making big headlines so they can finally get the fuck out of the DA’s office and get their interview on CNN or FOXNews, are charging this girl as an adult while charging her victimizers for victimizing a child.
