  • “This man raped me a long time ago,” we say, “But that was in the past. He can’t change the past.” When a girl says, “This boy raped me last night,” we say, “But his future! We can’t wreck his future.” And there she stands, suspended between his past and his future, with no value of her own except for how much she’s worth to whichever political party is feeling desperate today. Hell yes, an attempted rape accusation matters. Even a very old one. Even though it was just a girl. (Simcha Fisher)

Have a great weekend – it’s the last one in September which means it’s the end of my #100DaysofSummer adventure. Spoiler alert, despite what you may think, I did not do as well as I had hoped. But, don’t be sad for me, Summer was still very awesome. (image)
