A Very Much Needed Response To The Steubenville Incident

Thanks to Uppity Woman for bringing this VERY important PSA to our attention!  Cross posted from Uppity Woman.

Reinvigorating the concept of RESPECT for other human beings.


steubenville27n-8-webThis original of video was produced by University Of Oregon student Samantha Stendal:

A film student was disgusted with the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case coverage, so she directed a short video to spread a message she felt was glaringly absent: Real men do not rape.

Samantha Stendal, a sophomore film student at the University of Oregon, gathered a few friends to act in her anti-rape public service announcement, “A Needed Response,” after the high-profile trial of Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, who were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl.

“I just wanted something positive out there,” Stendal told the Daily News, “especially after there had been so many negative responses and people going directly to victim blaming.”

The video shows a man stumble (sic) upon a sleeping woman.

You go girl. And thank you to Justin Gotchall for acting like a Real Man should act.

Bless his heart. He wasn’t raised as a barn animal. He was raised by real parents to become a human being with a brain, heart and a soul. Tell me who you would want to marry your daughter………….A Steubenville Team Member and Barn Animal………or this guy.
