Feminists are highly selective in terms of what crimes against women they notice. Suppose, for example, that an embittered Ivy League girl wants to get her ex-boyfriend expelled from school. This is an urgent cause to feminists, and Emma Sulkowicz carrying a mattress around campus becomes a national news story. Or suppose that a crazy girl at a top-tier state university makes up a tall tale about being gang-raped at a fraternity. Again, this is urgent to feminists, and Rolling Stone will publish a lurid 9,000-word article about Jackie Coakley’s imaginary rape by the fictional “Haven Monahan.” Stigmatizing fraternities and boys at Ivy League schools as rapists is what the feminist agenda is all about.
On the other hand . . .
Jessica Chambers, 19, was burned to death in Mississippi. The case remained unsolved for more than a year, but now police say they’ve arrested the monster responsible for this atrocity:
A 27-year-old man has been indicted in the December 2014 burning death of Mississippi cheerleader Jessica Chambers, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
Quinton Verdell Tellis is already in custody in Louisiana on unauthorized credit card use charges. Authorities say the card in question belonged to a murdered Taiwanese exchange student and that while Tellis has not been charged in the student’s death, he remains a suspect in the investigation. . . .
“This has been the most unusual case that I’ve ever dealt with, the nature of how she died was very brutal and very horrendous,” District Attorney John Champion said at a press conference Wednesday. . . .
Tellis’s social media postings suggest he was part of the Insane Vice Lords street gang,according to the Clarion-Ledger. The paper reports that Champion confirmed Tellis was in a gang but said the crime was not gang-related. Tellis had been living with his wife in Louisiana when he was arrested in August on the credit card charges. . . .
Really, someone should ask Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti and Amanda Marcotte and — heck, why not? — Anita Sarkeesian if they can call attention to this violent crime, because last time I looked, none of them had mentioned it at all. They do not actually give a damn about anything except their own pet political agendas, which have nothing to do with a crime like this. Feminists are selfish and dishonest, and cannot be trusted to tell the truth about anything.
