    In what world is saying that a rape victim is making her story up not a firing offense?  Apparently in Steubenville.
    It's hard not to find news stories that make every rape accusation a "he said/she said" debate. And while it's true that "guilty until proven innocent" needs to be applied to the suspect that doesn't automatically mean the accuser has to be called a liar. But that seems to be the immediate reaction in this world of male privilege. No matter how much evidence we immediately get the "but he/they were/are such nice boy/boys" stories and the victim gets cast as a tramp, harlot, whore, or worse.

    Sorry conservatives, but Occam's Razor isn't a beard trimmer for jihadists. What it means is I don't have to accept your crazy-assed theories as an alternative to reality.
