Teenage Girl’s Alleged Rape Goes Viral, Rape Becomes Meme

RAPE is never a laughing matter. 

Just when you think humanity can’t sink any lower, it does. Photos of a 16-year-old girl’s unconscious body after an alleged rape at a house party are going viral. The victim, who is going by Jada, claims that she was drugged after accepting a drink from the party’s host. Since the photos of her body leaked, a slew of videos, photos, and nasty tweets have spawned and now Jada has her very own hashtag, mocking the events of that night: #jadapose.

a twenty pound heart.

Some would say I’ve had an unfortunate childhood. Parents being divorced and all. I can admit at times it can really bring a girl down - parents fighting over who gets to claim me on their taxes, telling lies about each other, mom blaming dad for the divorce, dad resenting mom. you know, the usual.  But to me, growing up meant trying to find the good in the so called “bad” situation. 

Clearly they weren’t meant to stay together forever, and the best part about remarriage is you get to see them become the most happy they’ve ever been after going through the worst pain of their life. I would say there’s many positives to step parents - more gifts for holidays and your birthday, more people to cheer you on, more inspiring people to look up to, and best of all - more grandparents.

Ahhh grandparents, the light of our lives. They spoil us, they tell us old stories, they teach us their traditional recipes. Though I haven’t been extremely close with any of my step grandparents, or full grandparents for that matter, besides my mom’s parents of course, I still cherish each one in their own special way. Today I have seven living grandparents-

My mom’s parents, who are both still alive

My step-mother’s mom,

my step-father’s mom

and my dad’s parents, his dad in terrible shape, and his mom, on her death bed. 

See, having more grandparents has its upsides, but even worse downsides. We endure more pain, and we endure more loss. A heart-wrenching text I received yesterday didn’t faze me at first, but after giving it more thought over quite a few vodka sours, I realized just what it meant. My grandma has been in rough shape for quite a long time now. Alzheimer’s and Dementia have taken their tole on here for nearly ten years. Its a blessing she’s made it as long as she has. Though I haven’t spent any quality time with her since I was probably nine years old, it still hurts to know I have to say goodbye. 

Sure, you may say it doesn’t hurt as bad because we weren’t close, but I’m here to say it hurts just as bad, if not worse. I will never get to bake brownies with her, or play with her old dog. I’ll never get to see her on my wedding day, She’ll never be my children’s great grandmother, and most of all, I’ll never get another chance to build more of a relationship with her. The hardest part of saying goodbye to someone who faded out of your life, is regret. You kill yourself, cry yourself to sleep, and let your mind run around a never ending track thinking “What If.” Though the last time I saw her, she had no idea who I was, who my dad was, or even who she was, it was still comforting know she was still alive, and her soul still on earth.

Everyone knows loss, everyone has endured pain. And I’m sure everyone has felt regret. But I promise you, you will never want to feel the pain of losing your last chance cherish someone

Take the time to get to know someone, and don’t take them for granted. 

Every day we live, we get closer to death. And everyday we don’t spend time with each other, we get closer to losing them.

I promise if you don’t take the chance while you can, you’re going to carry that weight around on your heart for a very long time.

There are few things more painful then a heavy heart.

Take it to the bank.

You had nothing better to say, except we can still be friends,

though you’ve technically explained, I just can’t comprehend.

I’ve decided this is the end, or maybe rather the beginning

because you may have left me in pieces, but I keep my own world spinning.

You burned the bridges yourself, but keep trying to cross the stream,

 I refuse to fall into your trap, your selfish, evil scheme.

I gave you my all, and though I don’t regret,

This is a mistake I learned from, and definitely won’t forget.

We can’t be afraid to fall in love, for that’s the best part of life,

but we can’t expect to achieve our dreams without a bit of strife.

I may still be a little bitter, and still a little hurt,

but mostly because you refuse to leave me alone, and continue to be on the flirt.

Sorry boo, I didn’t reply, and will continue to pass,

not because I’m busy, but because you’re a selfish, egotistical ass.

Have fun with your childhood friend, rekindling that burnt out flame,

But when you’re alone on a Friday night, you’ll have yourself to blame.

Don’t try calling, or shooting me a text,

Just keep going down your list, and call the girl that’s next.

I have this new found love for myself, and I guess I have you to thank,

I’m so much better off without you, and baby, you can take that to the bank.
