The recently infamous Loudon County teenage rapist’s mother recently defended him saying he raped her by “accident,” and then blames her for her own rape by saying she should have defended herself better against her rapist.
There were some spectacularly horrifying quotes in these articles.
The mother said,
“He said he was intending for vaginal and it ended up for 10 seconds as anal.”
Newsflash! Even though he meant to forcibly rape her vaginally and “accidentally” forcibly raped her anally, it’s still rape. Him having no idea which hole he’s sticking it in has no bearing on whether or not he’s forcibly raping this girl in the girls bathroom that he entered by wearing a skirt and taking advantage of radical woke progressive trans bathroom policies.
She also said,
“He knew she was in pain. He said,’ ‘Are you okay?” She said that hurt. And he’s like, what kind of pain?’ He was showing genuine concern.”
Newsflash! Even if he was actually surprised that he was physically hurting her while he was pinning her to the floor and forcibly raping her, it’s still rape. And he gets no sympathy points at all for the fact that he asked his victim if she was OK when he caused her pain by forcibly raping her. If he had any genuine concern for her, he wouldn’t have forced her to her knees, forced his erection into her mouth, forced her to flip over, pinned her to the ground, and forcibly penetrated her.
This last quote from the mother is truly horrendous. She aggressively blames the victim.
“You’re 15. You can reasonably defend yourself. You’re not just going to sit there and take it. And so, because there wasn’t a presence of a fight, he felt it was okay to keep going.”
Newsflash! He forcibly pinned her to the floor after she had already declined to engage in sexual intercourse with him, and forced his erect penis into her body multiple times. Very often, victims of rape simply do what they need to survive. Fear of further angering a rapist and inviting further violence often contributes to a victim’s actions. They may be paralyzed by fear, clouding their thinking and affecting their response. There is no amount of physical fight that a person is required to use to defend themselves against their rapist in order to qualify for not being blamed for their own rape. If someone robs you and you don’t put up much of a physical fight against them, you were still robbed and you still aren’t responsible for the actions of your attacker simply because you didn’t put up “enough” of a fight. It’s still rape.
And the fact that they had previously had sex has absolutely no bearing on whether or not this was a rape. Spousal or partner rape is very real, especially in physically abusive relationships, where one partner physically forces themselves on a partner who does not want to engage in sexual intercourse. They may have had sex hundreds of times over the course of their marriage, and it’s still rape if one of partner forces themself on the other without their consent.
Now, I’d like to draw attention to the absolutely glaring and infuriating radical woke progressive leftist hypocrisy that this story highlights.
Where exactly is the #MeToo movement in all this? Why aren’t they all over social media, protesting, contacting lawmakers, and screaming about how wrong it is to blame the victim, and how wrong it was to cover up multiple sexual assaults and rapes for purely political reasons? Where exactly are all the celebrities like Alyssa Milano, who were all in on #BelieveAllWomen and #MeToo?
I’ll tell you exactly where they are. They’re staying silent because this particular rape and this particular victim blaming and this particular politically-motivated rape coverup reflects poorly on their overall radical woke progressive narrative. So they are just going to pretend like it isn’t happening. They’ll just ignore it if it doesn’t serve their political and social purposes. They won’t use their significant platform and influence to draw attention this one.

She said she went to therapy and discussed “remembering that one moment of feeling like I was being held down and had things being done to me that I didn’t want, to me, was very reminiscent of being sexually assaulted.”
“I remembered at one point really not enjoying the fact that lots of people had access to my vagina,” she said, adding, “and thinking to myself, ‘Why does — I don’t like this. Why does it feel so familiar? I’ve never had a baby before. Why does this invasive feeling feel so familiar?’”
Don’t you think she might have had a few words to say about blaming this 15 year old victim for her own rape? Or maybe about this boy acting like her mouth, vagina, and anus could be freely accessed by him, like what was so triggering to her?
The answer is no. She couldn’t be bothered. Because, once again, radical woke progressive leftists prove that they don’t actually care about people.
They only care about the narrative.
