Open Letter to the Students at Penn State

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Dear Students at Penn State protesting because a Coach got fired for protecting a Man who sexually assaulted children:

Wow. Just wow. I don't usually feel such anger at unknown people, but I can only say to you that I feel both great pity and amazing revulsion for you.

I personally would like to sit you in groups and let survivors of child sexual assault tell you their stories. In every last horrifying detail.  I want you each to face a Human who has been raped or molested or had their trust destroyed by Adults, either directly or through the tacit silence of fuckwads like this Coach. Of course, that is the survivors who didn't kill themselves or are in jail, or are so far gone in addictions that they simply can no longer tell you their story.

I want you to read case files of children raped in motel rooms or bathrooms or places that they live, their genitals or anus ripped and torn to the point of needing vast re-constructive surgery. I'd like you to meet five year old girls who can only relate to Men by offering them oral sex.

I want you to see the pictures in those case files.

I want you to justify to these survivors why Football is more important than the life of any child.

Because right now, the urge to drive to Penn State and punch every single one of you  in the fucking face is nearly overwhelming.

Very Baleful Regards,

5 Baleful Regards:

There are one or two students from the clips at Penn State who said things so colossally stupid that they are going to regret speaking on camera for the rest of their lives...and I, too, debated making the ten hour drive to punch a few of them in the face....

Absolutely. Amen. Right on. Anything else agreeing with you that I can possibly say.

I am embarrassed to live in PA. We have never supported PSU because of the arrogance of Joe Paterno and the importance of football over education. They all make me sick right now.
