"On December 13th , a twenty-eight-year-old California woman was brutally raped by four men because she is a lesbian and had a rainbow sticker on her car." [source: here]
"One man and two teens have been arrested on suspicion of gang-raping a woman last month in the San Francisco Bay area while allegedly taunting her for being a lesbian, police said Thursday as they searched for a fourth suspect." [source: here]
But this is not the gang rape that is making the news currently. This one, also in Richmond, CA, involves a fifteen year old girl, raped by ten teenaged to adult males, with twenty bistanders doing nothing except, perhaps, taking photos and video of the rape. Thus turning one teenage girl's horror into pornography which can be posted all over the web.

What follows is one small portion of her post linked to above.
There is a solid foundation in our society for this type of crime but there is also a strong movement to try to dismantle this foundation so even far less brutal acts of sexual violence would spark national outrage and a national determination to let go of the myth that there is nothing we can do to stop the endemic level of sexual violence except wait until crimes like this happen and then lock up as many of those involved as we can. -- Marcella Chester
