Free speech, bad taste or criminal tendencies?
In a recent post, we discussed our disgust with a thread in which military personnel (or readers of a US military [we think] online publication) advocated violence and rape of women. Read about the issue here.
Thanks to a wonderful reader, we have updated the information with a call to action as well.
I also appreciate all of the individuals who sent messages or left comments on the blog about the issues this raises. I am still surprised and dismayed that this thread and ones like it are continuing and individuals associated with the defenders of our country are so openly advocating murder, rape, coerced oral sex, and racist hatred of ethnic and religious groups.
But, I am, at the end of the day, in favor of free speech. I suppose that these individuals have fought to defend my freedom to say that they are uneducated, weak-minded fucktards. I am troubled that they’ve also defended their own freedom to advocate secretly taping sexual encounters to be used as “evidence” to counterattack potential claims of rape.
I would be interested in hearing about your thoughts on this matter. Weigh in here in our comments section and don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook where many of these conversations continue.
