Jimminy Fucking Cricket


Whether you believe it or not, it takes a LOT of booze or bullshit to make me really angry and confrontational. Usually the former, occasionally the latter. But that’s just me. Tonight, it’s a stunning combination of both.

Anyway, I’ve discovered that two of my Facebook peeps have recently “friended” a convicted gang rapist, criminal and former (ish) bikie. Because he’s been banned from pubs by the state government and people think being his friend on facebook is funny or ironic or a statement about personal freedom. Sure, his being banned from being in any pub ever (or five years or something) may not exactly have been done “fairly” but this man is basically scum of the earth. He’s a rapist. He’s a criminal. Who gives a fuck that he’s not allowed into pubs? Do you want to stand beside him at the bar?

I don’t and you shouldn’t either. Giving this fucking RAPIST any traction at all demeans all of us. Let him sit at home and drink Bundy and coke instead of ordering it at a bar where someone might get stabbed. There are bigger issues in the world to be concerned about than some rapist bikie criminal asshole’s right to drink in a pub.

I suspect the people who have friended this dick, this rapist, won’t read this, so I’m venting here. Because I’m not sure whether to send an anger-fuelled message to them or not.

In any case, it’s not funny, it’s not ironic, it’s not clever. If you’re going down that path, then why not hang out in prisons where they do the sex offenders’ rehab. I have a friend who has to deal with these people Every Fucking Day because that’s her job. She’s amazing in the face of such awfulness. And if you’ve ever been sexually assaulted, sat in court and heard about it or tried to rehabilitate people who have done it, it’s not fucking funny. It’s not ironic. And it’s certainly not worthy of Facebook friending.

Get a fucking conscience. Do your research. Take responsibility for what you do. Social media may be the MacDonald’s of exchanging information, but that doesn’t excuse you entirely from accepting responsibility for your actions.

Friending a sex offender and criminal is criminal and a fucking punch in the face to anyone that has been hurt, abused, assaulted or fucked over in their lifetime by said person.

Jesus. Is that clear enough?

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
