Melissa Harris-Perry’s open letter to Steubenville survivor

So much respect for that.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love her any more than I already do.

Melissa Harris-Perry is just so great.


This is one of the only Steubenville news items I’ve been able to read or re-post.

The entire horrifying saga, from the deeply disgusting behaviour of those involved, to the media’s appalling coverage of same has made bile rise in my throat and a deep, guttural fear sit in my heart.

I do not want to raise my daughter in a world where she could be that girl. It raises my hackles and my throat closes with anger.

I will not raise my daughter in a world that makes apologies and excuses and sympathies for those boys.

I don’t know what to say, I have struggled to find words and failed, time and time again.

This comes pretty close.
