Seeing kids that at 11 years old and going grand prixs and kids who are my age and are winning the mclays make me feel bad about myself bc I could be that kid but I can’t bc I’m poor and keep making the wrong decisions for my riding career and it pisses me off bc if I just had more money I could probably do all the riding shit I want but I can’t bc I’m poor.

trigger warning for rape excuses

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

What really burns my bacon isn’t that rapists use this as a defense (I couldn’t fight the temptation), but that defense attorneys, juries, judges, and media accept it.  To me that makes them accessories, equally guilty, because they not only use this to excuse this person’s crime, but they are telling other rapists it’s okay.

prokopetz, what are the angry asks?

Is there ANY kind of source for this claim?

No one likes sitting trot - except dressage riders, but they’re just weird.
