Earlier today, The Daily Beast published a rape apologist, homophobic, transphobic article on Chelsea Manning. When they saw the Internet's (rightfully pissed) reaction, they removed several paragraphs and added an editor's note that "oops some of the stuff about prison rape being fairly uncommon is completely wrong but, you know, it's an op-ed so everyone relax." So, everyone: Relaaaax. Or instead, read Meagan's excellent piece from earlier today for things like facts.


Such a disgusting, horrifying piece of shit. Both the article and its author - and I feel comfortable adding that last part because the lascivious description of inmates lined outside the cell of a transwoman whose non-optional prison "husband" was pimping her out made me think that the author may be fairly familiar with prison rape from the rapist's view.
