William Rivers Pitt Announces Opposition to Rape
Scream it from the rooftops so the whole world can hear and believe: William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape!!! Got that? Not only is he is against rape as you can see in this THREAD, "Y'know..." but he is against rape in multiple recent threads including, "I need feminism because...". Yes, we get it, Will. The former Newton schoolteacher is AGAINST rape! And if you don't quite believe him, he will scream into your ear to convince you from now unto the end of time. So let us watch Pitt put forth his case over and over and over again that he is AGAINST rape in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who is also AGAINST rape but sees no need to SHOUT it out to convince the world of that fact, is in the [brackets]:
[Does the Temporary SockPuppet also know?]
I've been on this forum for eleven and a half years. For a variety of reasons, that enormous 4,000-days-and-more body of experience makes me want to believe the best about DU, because I love this place for reasons it would take another 4,000 days to explain.
[How many days has the Temporary SockPuppet been on that forum?]
The fact that a pre-school-level discussion on rape and the existence of certain self-evident truths regarding what women in America (yes, even today!) must endure is still necessary on this forum is a cold-water-in-the-face moment for me.
[Speaking of which, wasn't there an interesting incident a few years ago at a cold-water flat near Newton?]
When I posted a picture of a woman saying that her school is teaching her how to avoid rape, instead of teaching everyone not to rape, I simply expected any replies to be of the "Yeah," "Truth," or "Right on" variety...because I want to believe the best of DU.
[You simply wanted everybody to KNOW that WILLIAM RIVERS PITT is AGAINST rape. We believe you, Pitt. Why so defensive?]
Most of the thread turned into a fight. There's a whole other thread on the same picture that turned into a fight.
[Sniff? Why can't everybody simply accept that Pitt is AGAINST rape?]
The fact that the picture posted ACTUALLY NEEDS A F*CKING EXPLANATION AND DEFENSE around here is tremendously revealing, and equally depressing.
[Yes, VERY revealing, Pitt. But NOT in the way you think.]
To those who have stood this particular watch on DU: OK. I get it. I'm sick about it.
[To all the peoples of the world...William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape. Got that? And if you don't he will angrily announce that fact over and over and over again.]
God f*cking damn it.
[Overcompensation is a FUnnie thing to watch.]
For reference, the picture in question:
Thanks for sticking up for women!
[Was that thanks from the incarcerated co-author of a "BEST-SELLING" NY Times list book?]
Thank you, Will. Although this is supposed to be a "discussion" board, as you say, there are some things that should be self-evident and shouldn't need discussion.
[And yet Will remains oddly OBSESSED over this topic.]
you sound shocked Mr. Pitt...
[How does the Temporary SockPuppet sound?]
I'm a man ...and I carry my own invisible backpack of privileges, absurdities and glaring blind spots. This we call evolution.
[Yes, Will, and your most glaring blind spot is forgettng that the DUmmie FUnnies would notice your weird obsession on the topic of rape. I guess because I've been taking a DUFU break for a few weeks made you think it was "safe" to post about a topic that completely obsesses you for some reason.]
Perhaps it was the Contract on America?
[Or Teacher Contract at Newton.]
I spent the 1970s as a pot-smoking "freak" - I was too young to be a hippie - listening to the most out-there music I could find and playing bass guitar. Stoner culture in those days was surprisingly egalitarian, but dopers have always tended to be pretty laid-back, whether male or female. Guys tried to have sex with girls, but there were no roofies, date-rape drugs or the like, and guys who were too aggressive were definitely frowned upon by their peers. It was more like the hippie daze in that respect.
[Newsflash! You're still in a daze.]
Thank you, WilliamPitt ...for continuously telling it like it is.
[And NEVER stopping to tell us. William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape! William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape! William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape! William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape! William Rivers Pitt is AGAINST rape! Got that?]
Don't rape is the right teaching And it needs to be repeated amongst men whenever the subject arises.
[Is that subject taught at Newton?]
God help me...and anyone who messes with my girl. Yeah. Try me even once.
[Threatened the the Bobo the Hobo PROTECTOR.]
I know rape happens on campus. What percentage of the rapists are students?
[And what percentage are teachers?]
Close to 10% of all male college students engaged in sex that was unwanted by their partner.
[10% of the DUmmie blowup dolls objected.]
LOL WilliamPitt always gets his own thread to discuss what is already in another thread. Because his opinion is more important than just about anyone here
[That's because he urgently wants you to know he is AGAINST rape. No matter how many threads it takes, Pitt will continue to announce unto all the peoples of the world that he is AGAINST rape.]
Nah, I'm just a dick.
[Isn't that what originally got you into trouble, Will?]
I hereby announce the winner of "The most narcissistic thread ever" award.
[And this DUmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity in PERFECTLY categorizing Pitt's thread.]
