So I left a couple of comments on Adam Weinstein's Colombia University story on the Gawker MP about graffiti popping up all over campus naming alleged rapists...

And of course the rape apologists are skittering out of the woodwork to yell "what about false accusations?!?! Don't you have sympathy for the falsely accused?!?!"

I know this happens with every rape-related MP article (specifically worse on Gawker than on Jezebel), but still. Still! Fuck stupid people, man.

The thing that irks me the most is that, more than likely, these idiots making these "woe is man" comments probably know at LEAST one woman who was raped. They probably know more than one, considering that about 1 in 4 women will be a victim of sexual assault. SIGH.
