Remember guys, the last person to post something petty and childish is the internet winner.

I dont think she wants to blame the victim. Thats the point. This discussion centers more around a desire to shit on Cracked based on past slights than anything else. Any desire to shit on the specifically because of this article implicitly impugns the author of the article as well.

Is this another one of those cases where "who's talking matters more than rhetoric"

She asked them to publish the article. Thats what a pitch is.

If its awkward and incongruous for that article to be on that site, I think its reasonable to suggest that your complaint implies the same about the person who asked for it to be there.

Dude do you even realise you're projecting some victim-blaming bullshit onto other people right now

No, you seriously don't know. You're only assuming.

It's awfully bold of you to criticize a rape victim for the format she chose to tell her story.

I'm saying we cannot know how, or even if, she chose to tell it in this way. All we know is what the finished product looks like. Therefore, a criticism of a rape listicle is not necessarily a criticism of a rape victim.

Or maybe putting a rape story into the same language and format as meaningless pop culture trivia causes the issue to be normalised and stripped of its severity. We don't know if the writer wanted her experiences told in the way it's up now, or if that's all editorial, or something in between. All I know is that the end result is awkward as fuck, and probably not going to do a lot of good beyond catharsis.

I recently discovered Hip Hop Family Tree and it is a real gem.

Here's the link to the first comic because Boing Boing's site navigation doesn't include a convenient archive fomat, like some kinda jerk
