it is no secret that in today’s society, thanks to youtube, vimeo , facebook and keek, our most intimate moments can now be broadcasted to the world. I can’t get over how much I love watching the Youtube videos of def people experiencing the results of their auditory surgeries; the look in their face as they experience the sound of their loved ones’ voices for the first time.
as beautiful as moments like these are to share, there is also the not-so-gracious acts which unfortunately not only happen, but are displayed for the whole world to see.
just look at more recent news;Manti teo catfished, football players post their “deeds” on facebook and Mike Rice’s behavior is exposed to the world outside Rutgers.
whereas just a few years ago, any scandal of this kind would have remained in-house, it is now blatantly obvious that no matter where or who you are, you can never wipe your past from a scandal, especially one encrypted on the internet for eternity.
whereas Manti teo’s “mishap” may have been an innocent occurrence, the Steubenville “boys” acts” were malicious and shows “areas of opportunity” in society , especially regarding our youth. Mike Rice. Oh geez.As soon As that name was read an opinion was formed; but regardless of what you think of his behavior this newest scandal in Rutgers history is a perfect example of what happens when something that was never supposed to be seen by outsiders is exposed and with it exposes those who did not expose it.
Let us take a second to entertain these stories a bit further.
For some reason Manti’s gullibility made me feel somewhat sympathetic for this stranger, a professional football player, who probably could have any woman he wanted, falls in love with an inexistent entity over the internet. He is not the first nor the last person to be hoaxed in this way though; humans will always find a way to get negative uses out of everything, the internet is no exception.
about Mike rice?just type “Rutgers” on your favorite search engine. that is all.
the Steubenville high school football players. seriously wtf is wrong with society? first, where are these kids parents? If there is a handful of people around them at a party and they clearly see the drunken girl being fondled, it would be expected that at least one would step up to stop the madness. regardless of the athletes’ “football god” status, there has to be some sense of morality and humanity in SOMEONE , somewhere…but somehow, a child was still raped, and children still proceeded to blast it to their closest 500 friends and family over the internet.
excuse me while i take this toke and forward a selfie to the cops.
if you are going to commit a crime as serious as rape, why in the world would you air it for the whole world to see? it’s not okay to rape or take advantage of anyone, under any circumstance or scenario on god’s green earth. to then one, ridicule this child who did not realize she had even been abused until the next day; two, show how fucked up your sense of morality is and three, humiliate your entire family tree and show how shitty of a job they did at trying to instill any sense of righteousness in you is just absurd and inexcusable.
none of the involved will ever live down this night. The victim’s trauma can only be compared to those of other rape victims, though hopefully she will be able to recover, the pain of abuse never fully leaves a soul. As for the boys, forget the fact they will never fulfill their promising future as football professionals; the label of sex offenders will be tattooed on them for the rest of the time they spend above ground, and even after.
