TRIGGER WARNING: This article deals with an account of rape/sexual assault and may be triggering for survivors of abuse.
Hey you! Yeah, you!
(1) Are you a young female?
(2) Are you no longer a virgin?
(3) Do you sometimes drink more than what your doctor would recommend?
If you answered yes to the three questions above, you better hope you don’t ever get raped or sexually assaulted, because if you did it would be YOUR OWN SLUTTY FAULT.
At least, that’s what tennis legend Serena Williams seems to think.
Need a refresher?
The Steubenville rapists are high school footballers who found a girl drunk and passed out at a party last year. They stripped her down, raped her, and dragged her around by her hands and feet. The kicker? They thought the whole thing was so hilarious that they filmed it, photographed it, and posted the evidence on social media.
Two of the boys were eventually tried and found guilty, and there was much talk in the media about what a shame it was that their ‘promising futures had been ruined’.
Futures ruined? Yep. A big shame? No. BECAUSE THEY RAPED SOMEONE.
Now, back to Serena Williams.
