Ahh, Halifax. My hometown.

A protest was held today in support of Rehtaeh Parsons, the Halifax girl who recently committed suicide after being bullied incessantly due to photos that circulated of her being raped by four boys. You’ve seen it on the news, I’m sure.

It’s a horrible tragedy, and on top of it, a counter-protest was staged today in support of the boys accused of raping her.

Not upsetting enough? Have a look at the Facebook page (Speak The Truth) set up in support of the accused rapists.

Don’t believe in rape culture? Read the Facebook group, wherein one guy accuses Rehtaeh of being a coward who killed herself because she “made a drunken mistake.” Yeah. Because being raped is a mistake, like forgetting bus change or picking up the wrong kind of milk. Right?

Wrong. There’s a lot I could say on this topic, but look for yourself…
