Apologies in advance, but this is going to be a downer of a post. It is a follow on from my Grooming post, whereby I outlined that girls were groomed from birth to be heterosexual, well, it seems that it is really well beyond that point, they are also groomed to be rape fodder, and by their own mothers no less.
Under statutory rape laws in Australia (although it varies a little from state to state, a quick overview here, 2nd comment), the boys were 15 and 16, the girl was 14. Even though their ages fell within the two year ‘close-in-age exemption’ within the age of consent guidelines (for most Australian states), the boys pled and were found guilty of sexual assault anyway. An idea of the events of that occurred that night, which included the boys drinking, and plying her with vodka when she arrived at one of their homes. The other automatic criminal offence they committed, which has no age exceptions (like consent) is possessing or distributing images of a sexual nature of ANYONE under the age of 18 (child pornography laws).
This pack rape mentality is not new, and has been a growing trend over recent years. “C— the Movie” happened in 2006, where a pack of teen boys, most around the age of 17, sexually assaulted, humiliated, and recorded their attack on a developmentally-delayed 17yo girl. They got caught due to the entrepreneurial nature of their exploits, trying to sell the movie for then A$5. At least once or twice a year I notice similar teen pack rape stories reported in the news, and it seems to be a growing trend that these little rapist dickwads hunt in packs and lure girls into a situation where they are grossly outnumbered.
Anyway, back to the current crop of rapist dickwads. The parents of these boys justifying their little rapists’ actions with the old ‘boys will be boys’:
“It wasn’t rape. There was no violence, nothing. It was all friendly and consensual,” she said.
“What people are up against is that it is a crime but they didn’t know that. The age gap was only two years and you can’t compare this to what other people do.
“(The courts) should look at each case separately, it would have been fuelled by alcohol and (the boys) not thinking straight.
“They really didn’t do much that’s the worst thing. It would happen to everyone if it was made public. It happens all the time.”
I wonder if the Nigel’s mother would be quite so understanding if it were another teen boy that had forced her Nigel to jerk or suck him off? No harm, no foul, no problem eh? Or is that one of those ‘real rape™’ things that happens, when it happens to a Nigel? If I was her, I certainly would not be defending the little shit.
But worst of all was the response from the girl’s mother:
The mother of the 14-year-old girl at the centre of the scandal also did not believe the boys deserved to go on the register, because they were “just kids”.
She said that she wished all the parents could have dealt with it rather than involve the police but once the school heard about it, it was referred on.
She also held her daughter accountable for the incident after the vision was sent around to mobile phones and was destined to be posted on the social network site Facebook.
Held her daughter accountable? What the fuckity fuck fuck? Here’s the bus, hold still whilst I throw you under it. We are only in March of this year, but I nominate that one Shocker of The Year. Sickening, it truly is. It is one thing to be pissed at your teen daughter sneaking out, drinking, being sexually active, but to hold her accountable, in a situation where she was grossly outnumbered by teen boys, and even if the encounter was consensual with the first scumbag, it is highly suspicious that the subsequent acts were, particularly as they had ensured to pour plenty of vodka down her throat. It was a planned and calculated pack attack on your daughter FFS.
But, the ray of hope is that the world, outside this collection of bad parenting, has not completely lost the plot:
“They were crucified,” Sarah [a Nigel’s mother] said. “The first three who were charged, they were absolutely crucified in the (news)papers and made it sound like they were rapists and it was like they were sacrificial lambs led to the slaughter. It was horrible.
Yes mother-of-Nigel, he is a rapist, and the newspapers were right to criticise his actions/behaviour, rather than excusing it like you. And the only sacrificial lamb in this story was the 14yo girl, not your precious fucking Nigel.
