#RapeCulture Update

Posted on | June 7, 2014 | 42 Comments

Hollywood is all about fighting “rape culture” except, of course, when they’re perpetrating rape:

An actor best known for a small role in Jurassic Park is in custody for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
Cameron Thor was charged on Wednesday with 11 counts, including kidnapping, robbery and rape, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He appeared at the Van Nuys Courthouse on Thursday and is being held on $2.6 million bail.
Thor has worked as an acting coach at Carter Thor Studio, located in Studio City, and officials say the alleged victim consulted with him about taking classes in 2008 when she was 13. After one of the consultations, Thor allegedly drove her to a secluded area in Agoura Hills and sexually assaulted her. . . .

Meanwhile, here is an interesting rape-related quote:

“I believe God put me here for a reason: to inspire people, to encourage them, to give them hope that everything is possible and you can’t let your circumstances define your life.”

That’s Miss Pennsylvania USA Valerie Gatto who, at age 24, is five years older than her mother was when her mother was raped by a stranger — an unsolved crime that resulted in Valerie’s conception.

Rape is a bad thing. Life is a good thing.

    Obviously the NRA and the Koch Brothers are behind this. We should round up Sarah Palin too, just to be safe.

    It is probably a good idea not to accept rides or candy from this guy…

    Santorum too. Especially Santorum.

    The Hollywood Reporter article says Thor played the man who made a deal for dino-embryos with Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight, Newman on Seinfeld), but I think that is incorrect. That was Dodgson, an older character. I believe Thor actually played the leader of the handlers in the opening scene where a raptor is being moved from cage to cage and kills a worker in the process.

    EBL’s picture more closely resembles that character, and if you search for images of Thor, the Jurassic pix are those of that man in khakis, not the furtive man who meets Nedry in the cafe.

    That the child of rape had a good life, and seems to be a happy and well-adjusted young woman, is of no consequence to the Abortionistas.

    They will argue it’s the mother’s decision and the mother is the only victim – even though the crime against the mother is done and the killing of the child is new and controllable. But they don’t really care about the rape victim, or even mothers in general.

    It’s all about the multi-million dollar industry of “providing” abortions – now subsidized by the US taxpayer – and the lucrative business of loudly advocating for “choice.”

    Blood money buys much from those without a conscience.

    I understand the ethical/moral implications of the Valarie Gatto case, but good luck trying to persuade most women (including Republicans) that if they’re raped, they’re going to have to bear the rapist’s child.
    You’ll be p*ssing in the wind on that one.

    Yes. It would probably go down about as well as convincing an 18th century slaveowner that he has no right to own black people.

    Still, independently of how people may perceive things, good and evil exist in the world and can’t simply be waved away at one’s convenience. Abortion, like slavery, is a grave evil.

    The rape angle is perhaps the strongest emotional case for abortion and I too find the idea of a woman having to bear her rapist’s child horrific. Just not as horrific as the alternative. Especially bearing in mind that abortions undertaken for reason of rape are very rare – the vast majority of abortion victims are healthy unborn culled as a form of belated contraception. Even if there’s a moral case for permitting abortion in cases of rape, it doesn’t excuse the other 99%+ of cases.

    Which is why I have always said that is a moral argument, not a legal one. I am against abortion, but I would never use the power of the state to compel no abortions in the case of rape. The right choice is not to compound the crime, but I know trying to create a universal ban on abortion would backfire (at least where things are now).

    Well said.

  • concern00

    …to bear the rapist’s child…

    How criminally omissive such a statement is; at what point do you neglect to recognize that its your child as well?

    (No slight intended to Matt_SE)

    “Rape is a bad thing. Life is a good thing.”

    Amen

  • WarEagle82

    It is increasingly obvious that “progressives” do not view “life” and especially “human life” as a good thing.

  • Dennis Mahon

    Umm…I just googled his image – it comes up as Dodgson…

    And IMDB credits him as “Lewis Dodgson”; Bob Peck played the role of “Robert Muldoon”.

    How long will it be before @amandamarcotte demands that she give up her crown? Or has that already happened?

  • Southern Air Pirate

    Well to Ms. Marcotte the young lady isn’t worthy of the term female because she believes in being objectified by the sex obsession minds of the patriarchal oppression. So the young lady isn’t worth and thing more than a hearty dismisal and cluck of tongues.

  • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Yes, which is why the moral argument is the way to go.

  • Joe Dokes

    Sooner or later, this woman will bear the wrath of the Left simply for being alive. Attempts will be made to keep her from succeeding in whatever endeavors she pursues. Her testimony is too big a threat to the liberal campaign donation and minority extermination industries.

    THIS.

    But, Evi, aborting the innocent child who was conceived in a rape is compounding the crime by allowing a murder to occur.

  • Matt_SE

    I’m not sure if the analogy to slavery was offered glibly or not, but I agree with you, there are great similarities:

    An injustice approaching (arriving at?) evil is done to the innocent for the sake of power/control/convenience.

    But like slavery, the cause has been so internalized by the left that extreme measures would be required to eradicate it suddenly (never mind that the effects lingered for 100 years). 600,000 deaths in a country with about 30 million people…or, about 2% of the population.

    This is the kind of effort that I think would be required. And even if it didn’t result in secession or armed conflict, the resulting fight would tear the country apart.

    Instead, I would advocate for a more gradual approach. Start with establishing Republican/conservative dominance in economic matters, then make a concerted effort to establish/reconquer the cultural nodes. This would be the work of generations.
