La Shawn is still blogging this one closely.
She calls out a journalist for calling the Duke women's lacrosse team "ignorant" for publicly supporting the men's team:
Make sure you understand what Smith is saying. He implies that women who publicly support men accused of rape are â€œignorant or insensitiveâ€ because of â€œ94,635 rapes in the country in 2004â€¦â€
According to Smith, the women should suspend all judgment about this tale of rape because 94,635 rapes occurred in 2004. I wonder how many were also false allegations?
Following Smithâ€™s line of reasoning, no one should support or believe anyone accused of murder because there were 16,137 murders in 2004. Iâ€™m sure a few perpetrators of those 401,326 robberies had supporters, particularly where the accusersâ€™ stories were full of holes and, to borrow a word from Smith, dumb. What about women who supported Kobe Bryant? Were they also "ignorant and insensitive?"
There's a lot more in that post.
