The Blame Game

Leave Brock Turner alone. He didn’t write the rules of the game he’s in. The same goes for Persky — he didn’t write the rules either. Bend them yes, but he didn’t write them either. You did. You did when you voted for him. Or didn’t. Vote, that is.You wrote the rules for this sick game, now you are looking for anyone to blame, anyone except yourself, you who whether by intent or apathy acceded to the rules of the game. If you don’t want to be accounted as being part of this filthy game, you should have stood up, spoken out, shouted THEN. But you didn’t. OK, by all means, torture Turner, pillory Persky if it makes you feel better, but remember who is ultimately responsible for this rape culture — YOU.
