Welcome

We're not The Onion! Not affiliated with them in any way! Not operated by them in any way! All the news here is real!

The Rules

Posts must be:

  1. Links to news stories from...
  2. ...credible sources, with...
  3. ...their original headlines, that...
  4. ...would make people who see the headline think, “That has got to be a story from The Onion, America’s Finest News Source.”

Comments must abide by the server rules for Lemmy.world and generally abstain from trollish, bigoted, or otherwise disruptive behavior that makes this community less fun for everyone.

And that’s basically it!

I mean, that logic got Brock Allen Turner, the rapist who now goes by Allen Turner, off the hook. I guess it's worth a shot.

You mean Brock Turner the rapist who now goes by Allen Turner the rapist? That Brock Turner the rapist?

Well HE doesn't go by Brock Turner the rapist. He certainly wishes we'd stop calling him Brock Turner the rapist. But we'll never stop calling him Brock Turner the rapist, because Brock Turner the rapist is a rapist.

If we had to stop calling him something, we'd stop calling him Brock Turner before we stopped calling him the rapist.

Because Brock Turner the rapist deserves to be remembered as a rapist, and nothing more
