The thing is, it’s not like half this country suddenly became Islamophobes because of any single event.

This is a really, really important topic that we all need to be discussing. If you think it can’t happen again, imprisoning people in camps just because they are "different," please research the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during WWII. Pl ...more

“It’s the police, for the most part, who decide whether a suspect should be arrested, and prosecutors who ultimately determine whether a conviction should be pursued.”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Lisa Gabriele
“But I had done this to myself. I had invited her in. In my darkest days, I sometimes had to remind myself that it started here, in that moment, and that it wasn’t Rebekah who came after me. I was the one who went looking for her.”
Lisa Gabriele, The Winters

Jon Krakauer
“Most women are all too familiar with men like Calvin Smith. Men whose sense of prerogative renders them deaf when women say, “No thanks,” “Not interested,” or even “Fuck off, creep.”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Jon Krakauer
“According to this mind-set, there can only be two precursors to rape: (1) A stranger jumps out from the bushes; (2) There is no rape unless the woman puts up a fight, to the death if necessary.”

“Rape, Boylan pointed out, is the only crime in which the victim is presumed to be lying.”
