I am certain that her details of her personal trauma will be treated with tact and dignity by the denizens of FARK

Not at all. I'm sure they're a perfectly lovely people with their love of rape and all. I mean, who wouldn't love them?

I for one was horrified by what happened. I find rape to be one of the most disgusting crimes possible.

I am going to state for the record, at no time ever in history has a woman done anything to deserve rape. Never. It's so utterly wrong that the word crime doesn't do it justice.

But I will try to ask this question as calmly and without implication as I can.

Did it never occur to her, her producers, or anyone with even a passing knowledge of what was happening that maybe she should have had more security with her? Perhaps they thought they were safe because they were on the protesters side. But I knew by watching what I saw on TV that Egypt was as good as a free-for-all for several weeks. They were on the ground and in my opinion should have known better. Now some will over react to my statement. But I think intellectually it is a legitimate question to ask about the situation.

If you watched someone stick their hand into a hornets nest and they get stung terribly. You help them with their injuries but you would feel compelled to ask, "why did you do that?"

That does not however excuse what those men did. All of them are monsters and should strung up for their crime. And thank god those Egyptian women and soldiers intervened.

Regardless, of how she found herself in that position I think this interview speaks volumes of her character and bravery. I think having the courage to get up and speak about her ordeal is far braver then anything I am capable of.

Mob mentality is an ugly thing. This situation reminds me a parade they had several years ago at Central Park in NYC. A couple of women were raped by groups of men. I think when there are a bunch of men gathered at a place where emotions are high (whether those emotions are festive and celebratory, or angry), it's generally a good idea for women to keep their distance.

Fair and reasonable question. It may have been a lot of things: hubris on her part (I gotta get that story!), denial (it could never happen to me), producer's insistence (if it bleeds it leads). Perhaps she got caught up in the moment and didn't think of where it could go or what could happen. Perhaps naively thinking that she's a reporter, they're celebrating a victory and wouldn't be caught on camera doing anything untoward. May also have been a bit of western prejudice/expectations, that they can handle being in the presence of a woman without jumping right to the rape.

At the same time, her account states that it went from nothing to GTFO in an instant, and she got cut off. Everyone's guard was down, and by the time something was caught it was too late.

2011-04-29 12:18:41 AM
Now, I am certainly not one to "blame the victim" but, one must ask what she thought would happen. I mean, a fair skinned, blue eyed woman, parading herself in front of hundreds of devout muslim men, what did she expect? Them to compliment her on her designer handbag? Come on, muslim men are essentially animals, apes, rapist... if a white woman gets rapes by a pack of muslims, its clearly her fault.

Well you have to question the common sense of a woman who decides to report from a country that is going through what is basically martial law and a culture who does not hold women in a high regard. I know its easy just to beat up the muslims but its more the culture people are brought up around and the generation, it wasnt so long ago that women int he states were treated bad as well.

Sure, it shouldnt happen but in a mob people do idiotic shiat, I know she believes shes there to report on the event but use some common farking sense and do not subject yourself to a possibly hostile situation.

Let's face it, she went over to animal land, she looks like this, she shouldn't have allowed herself to be surprised. I hope someone remembers this in the future before an even worse thing than a public rape happens, as sad as that is to even think about.

Here we go again with the "Well, it sucks that she got raped but what did she expect going to a Muslim country flaunting her boobies?" posts.

She's the Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for CBS. Going to places like this to report a story is her job. In fact, it's how she got the job in the first place. International journalism can be a dangerous job. Sometimes things go wrong and reporters get injured or killed. But the idea that she's supposed to hide behind her desk while others go out and get the story just because she's a woman is stupid.

On the one hand, it's a lot of ITG and cock-swinging talk. Of those that partake, probably 90% would never say that to their grandmother and mean it. They do it "for the lulz", for one-upping audacity, or to give voice to provocative thoughts. On the other, I would truly be interested to know how many male posters actually believe what they post, or feel deep down there is something valid behind their words.

Human beings tend to turn into scum every time something big happens. She knew the risks and isn't playing it up as much as she could. She's accepting it as a risk of the job and moving on. Good for her, I say.

You must keep in mind that humans have only been civilized for a very short time in our existence. Sexual aggression is just below the surface in men. We've been able to sublimate it but when put in a group we tend to become savages.

Thats not good enough then, we should all be castrated to bend the will to all the other pussies who refuse to acknowledge men act like assholes.

Damn, have none of you ever watched spring break coverage on mtv?

Women, do yourself a favor, never trust us when we say we just want to go someplace quiet to talk, its code for we want to fark you as soon as youre drunk enough. Now, take alcohol away, take away the rules, rowdy up the locals, then throw in a hot blonde with no one to defend her and see what happens. Animals, some just reach that point sooner than others.

It's not just the sexual assault. Angry mobs are scary things if you're in the middle of one. I remember reading about a journalist caught in one of the anti-American riots in Somalia in 1993. The mob grabbed one of his guides and did a tug-of-war until the guy was literally ripped in half. That plus the beatings and asphyxiation and the strain of fighting the combined strength of dozens of people... would make the sexual assault a lesser concern.

It may also be fair to say that no person, be it man, woman, or child, deserves to be raped. Being naive, drunk, or pants-on-head stupid doesn't give an attacker the right to assault another.
