According to CBC News, 17-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons committed suicide after dealing with the trauma having been raped by four boys and then having photos of the rape circulated around school. CBC reports, “In 2011 when Rehtaeh was 15, she went with a friend to a small gathering with other teenagers and started drinking vodka. Parsons said Rehtaeh only remembered bits and pieces of the night, but does remember throwing up out a window.While one of the guys was allegedly having sex with her another yelled, ‘Take a picture, take a picture.'” Gross. Her mother, Leah Parsons, says, “She walked into the school and everyone started calling her a slut . . . Every text, every negative thing she would read to me. It was hard. She tried and she kept trying.” The police told them the photographs were not a criminal issue although she was underage and that there wasn’t enough evidence to charge the boys on rape. Sad. Just sad.
• At least 12 people were stabbed during a Texas Community College “stabbing incident.” Yikes.
• Instead of rehab Lindsay Lohan is going to Coachella. The perfect place to not do drugs.
“There were moments when I felt my nose had spread 20 inches, and my face felt crazy fat, and my lips were swollen, and I gained 57 pounds! But ultimately I enjoyed it.”
That’s so funny because I don’t remember Beyonce ever gaining any significant weight or physically changing in any real way. It was like one day at the VMAs she was pregnant then there was a baby. Almost as if she was never pregnant at all. :-|
