  •  Yep. Just like rape. (8+ / 0-)

    I mean we don't really know what happened. Maybe she provoked him. Maybe her skirt was short. Maybe she bent over to tie a shoe and he could see her breasts. Mabye she smiled. Maybe she wasn't a virgin. He wasn't necessarily a sexist. And besides, she smacked him when he tried to rape her. Isn't that equivalent to what he did?

    Bullshit. Are you stupid or do you think we are?

    Zimmerman was told explicitly to stay in his car. He did not. He followed Trayvon Martin. If a scared kid fights the armed man who follows him on the street late at night, that is not equivalency. Any more than landing a punch at a rapist.

    And what in god's name is a "nearly broken nose"?
