People Did Not Rape That 15-Year-Old Girl in Richmond, California

October 28, 2009

Males did.

Police are not looking for people who may have participated in the rape of a 15-year old girl. The police are looking for males who participated in the rape of a 15-year-old girl.

As a female, I refuse to be the mouse in a male’s pocket.

    I don’t know how it is that I can be not-surprised by the reporting and yet be particularly pierced by it every fucking time anyway.

    Sorry for trivial queation – what does being the mouse in someone’s pocket mean? I haven’t heard that expression before. I sort of feel like I get it because of context but not altogether…

    Also – am attempting to do this via my BlackBerry, didn’t think I could do blogs and comments from phone but we’ll see…

    Thanks for this post. Xoxo

      You are not the first to not be familiar with a mouse in a pocket. I guess it is really old school, or regional. It was so common place in my childhood that I assumed the world used it. “What do you mean we? There is no we, it is you!” I consider it a protest of fill in the blank conscription. We, people, they, what have you. There is an element of we are all in it together. You know, in order to water down who is truly responsible/accountable for whatever.

      No, we are not all in it together, thus, it is not people raping girls, it is men raping girls. Males have been raping females since “the sky god Zeus had easy access to the women of the world and took full advantage.” And I want to make my objection to compulsory inclusion known. Because, true to form, most of the articles I have read concerning what should be done about cases such as this 15-year old has been penned by female names (or at least traditionally recognized as female names) asking/begging/demanding that something must be done. And almost always that path has been not to suspect all men, but to do more of the same, which is to talk and educate young men. As if that has not been attempted before. Name males for what they are, suspects. It should be spelled out! It is not people, it is men.

    Also, there is a line in an old Mae West movie, “Is that a mouse in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

      See Edna you had to come in here and soil it. SOIL IT! LOL! And you know you stay up late at night and watch black and white movies. 🙂

      Well, even using that for a meaning implies there is an ulterior motive at play.

    I wish I could do something about all the males who rape females, but I am only one cowardly male in a sea of male rapists. Maybe one day I will look at the man in the mirror.
