@ParisHawk does it matter that she was a girl?
How do you know she was being tramautized?
That is a BS question. Picture the scenario, for crying out loud: alone in your car with a gang kicking away at it and shouting at you. You don’t think that’s menacing?
You use the word “know” to imply that I need to prove she was traumatized. Prove she wasn’t.
It seems people want to portray her as some innocent helpless girl. She’s a D-I baller in a P5 conference. She’s seen stuff, done stuff, understands stuff. And it seems she had a pretty active role to play in the situation. Let’s give her some credit in that regard.
This reminds me of the page from an Elmore Leonard novel: one guy says “Did you know once every 7 seconds a woman gets beaten in the US?” and the other replies “Hard to believe so many women get out of line.”
I’m not equating JJ’s actions to beating. My point is it what she did is no excuse.
Similarly, while Josh is an old freshman, he’s still a college freshman. Let’s not assume that his decisions now are indicative of his adult character.
I wasn’t talking about his character, I was talking about that one action. Not normal, not a “mistake”.
Let’s look at this through the lens of the current times.
That sentence scares me. More relativism - and worse, graver conflict among everyone concerning acceptable behavior. We who have a common bond here can’t even agree that what JJ did was wrong, and wrong enough to be brought before a judge?
You didn’t answer my question: was JJ’s treatment by the court too harsh for you?
