We’ll Show You Crazy Bitches Part II

 http://bashbacknews.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/well-show-you-crazy-bitches-part-ii/#comments
jacob onto is a piece of shit rapist. we are tired of accountability
processes that force the survivor to relive, over and over, the trauma of
assault; that force the survivor to put their reputation on the line as
"proof" of their credibility; that end up being an ineffective recreation
of the judicial process that leaves the perpetrator scot free, while the
survivor has to live through this for the rest of their life.

at the very least, the perpetrator should feel something, some lasting
mark of his behavior, something he will remember every time he has sex -
that is, if he ever has sex again. so we decided to make sure this is an
assault that jacob never fucking forgets.

we rolled in with a baseball bat. we pulled his books off his shelves: he
admitted it, not a single one mentioned consent. we made him say it: "i am
a rapist." we left him crying in the dark on his bed: he will never feel
safe there again.

this is a precedent. this is the beginning of a new kind of accountability
process, one that leaves the perpetrator in pain - though this is still
only a tiny fraction of the pain that he has caused. we know that jacob is
not the only guilty one. we know there are more of you out there.

we are not sorry, and we will not stop: from now on, we will respond to
sexual violence with violence.

"if you touch me, i will fucking kill you." let the roundups begin.

(a public service announcement: we encourage you to all use consent from
here on out. and let it be clear: consent is not the absence of a 'no,'
but the presence of a 'yes.')

WTF is this! Is this a joke? Is this a new group that going to go around cracking heads of supposed rapist or is it a group who "rolled up" on someone who raped them personally? I dont even know what to think.

what is this "supposed rapist" shit? people don't "cry rape." sometimes, abusive radicals manipulate our accountability processes and fuck shit up, but false rape claims are painfully rare. to me, this doesn't sound like a new group. this sounds like people who are sick and tired of failed accountability processes that never successfully hold rapists accountable for the pain they cause.

so, you've certainly on hit all the chic radical buzzwords and all but...

this is sketchy.

Especially the public bragging about it, which is unnecessary and betrays motives above and beyond "justice".

nevertheless,

steve.

I wouldn't worry about women (i admit this is a total gender assumption) defending themselves, unless you plan on being the kind of person who commits rape, (or are you seriously worried that you lack credibility enough that a false accusation would be taken seriously?). It was made clear that accountability processes were attempted and failed. It was not stated that this person suffered bodily from violence. The "bragging" is a warning, we and our comrades, as survivors of sexual assault will not be passive victims.

if someone is a certified, continually offending rapist or sexual assaulter. in the circumstance that others have noted [ accountability processes, unlearning etc. being ineffective]. such a response is more than warranted, let alone valuable.

Step 1 - Accountability and reconciliation

Step 2 - Reaffirmed unlearning of rapist tendencies

Step 3 - "Violent" WARNING

Step 4 - Castration / Destruction

[all steps being modified and/or SKIPPED depending ...]
