    Look, I didn't mean to start trouble with resident Wiccans here. Honestly, I didn't realize a word like witch would get me shouted down. I don't even have any problems with Wiccans! I didn't know that word would offend them.

     Then I have Tonedevil, Anastacia P and JesseCW telling me I'm horrible because I want teenage rapists to go to prison. You know like any other rapists would. Suddenly they're age apparently safeguards them from the consequences.

     I really had no idea that I'd be accused of wingnuttery like I am now.

    •  Perhaps you just used the word thoughtlessly, (6+ / 0-)

      and weren't, as I suggested, using it as a clever substitute for "bitch." I'll take you at your word on that.

      Now, as to the other element of my comment to irishwitch, you too uprated Rosalie907's comment.

      I know tempers are running high around this issue. Understandably. But, please consider the request I made of irishwitch. Rape culture is rape culture. It's not OK to hope for rape upon another as punishment, no matter how heinous the crime they've committed.

      Don't tell me what you believe; show me the excuses you make for Barack Obama, and I will tell you what you believe.

      effort to argue in good faith.

      You claimed 9 year old offenders should be treated like adults, and now you're earnestly trying to paint yourself as an aggrieved victim of persecution.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

      •  Okay, I'm not a victim. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm very emotional about this. My uncle was raped when he was a kid. I feel for this girl that was raped. I can't bring myself to feel bad for rapists, regardless of their age. Same goes for murderers. I feel for their victims, not for them.
