Erm…I guess not. As I type, a mob of students is gathering outside a Penn State office cheering for Joe Paterno who failed them. His (and everyone else’s) failure to report Jerry Sandusky for child abuse and possible child rape to law enforcement or child protective services is literally disgusting. From a revered leader, we expect much more.
People don’t want to acknowledge the deep-rooted rape culture that pervades our society. But when you see a Penn State student mob cheering Joe Paterno, a man who harbored a child rapist, and joking about it, rape culture is literally undeniable.
I’m going to go puke now.
