Quote of the Day

[Trigger warning for sexual violence.]

"If it's so terrible for boys to have to live with being rapists, would it not behoove society to teach them not to rape people?"—SKM, Very Smart Lady and Shakesville Contributor/Moderator, in comments, responding to the New York Times article in which compassion is expressed for the gang-rapists of an 11-year-old child, because "These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives."
