And It Begins...
Woman Allegedly Raped in Bourbon Street Bathroom
Teen Claims Assault During Party
The two common denominators between both of these stories? Alcohol. Both girls had drank to the point where they didn't remember exactly what had happened.
Where were their friends? Why were they left alone so early in the morning? Who let them drink that much?
Did anything actually happen?
I don't want to discredit what may have happened to these girls, but this is the shit I preach about every single year. I say bad things will happen, especially early in the school year when people are the least aware of how to handle themselves than any other time. Here it is, in plain black and white. People drink too much and can't say no. Or they can't say it forcefully enough. And then, they can't remember exactly what happened. Or who did what to them. Their friends are nowhere to be found. And now you have two girls who are possibly scarred for life, and there may be a few guys who's lives may be ruined by something that may or may not have happened.
Please, everyone, for the love of God, be responsible out there!
