Why should sexual promiscuity involve ridicule?
At 15 if you get in a gangbang with 4 guys, you're going to get ridiculed for being a slut, and deservedly so. Before you all bust out the pitchforks, don't get me wrong. It's horrible that she committed suicide, and I've got some serious empathy for her grieving friends and family.
People get ridiculed. They get harassed. You are a liar if you are telling me you didn't harass somebody just because they did something that was either really stupid, nerdy, rude, slutty, etc.
Now, I don't know how much she was being harassed. Some might say "well clearly enough to kill herself." But honestly, I feel, as ludicrous as it may sound, as this girl might be impressional. And by that, I mean she's an overdramatic teenage girl in this
generation, might get some ridiculous thoughts from the whole Amanda Todd thing.
Like I said, I don't know how badly she was being 'bullied'. I mean, you have to expect to get a lot of crap for getting in a gangbang with 4 guys at 15 years old. And no, I don't think she paid for her mistake. I think you pay by toughing out the heavier ridicule for a while, and having that mistake overhang you lightly for the rest of your life. People bring it up at parties and whatnot. That's what I'd expect. And I'm sure that was what it was, not horrible emotional torture. But then that brings up statements like "well, everybody's different, she's more sensitive." I just think you have to expect to be harassed for that, and I just can't help but doubt it was worse than what I expect.
I don't know. I'm ranting off the top of my head right now. It's a sad waste of life, I feel for her friends and family, but in my mind I just think this is stupid. I'm not saying this contemptuously, I don't want to be a jerk. Don't know the whole story, so I'm withholding my definitive judgement. But it just seems so ridiculous and stupid.
