There’s long version and a short version. Here’s the short version: go fuck yourself, Stephen A. Smith.
That’s the long version, too. I just draw the words out more.
Because I don’t need to tell you that it is not up to a victim to not get herself beaten, or raped or abused in any way. This should not be something that needs explained to someone. To anyone. And, yet, here we are. A man, a public figure, felt comfortable saying this. Then he felt comfortable defending it as some sort of heroic gesture to womankind and misconstrued by meanies. Between this and #WomenAgainstFeminism and a slew of other stories, I feel like I’ve fallen into a well of hate and crazy and I don’t know what’s happening. What is happening? What is even happening right now?
Everyone is terrible and everything sucks. Here’s a fucking kitten riding a fucking bike.
