return of the #ididnotreport hashtag: when Dawkins makes sense
from Richard Dawkins criticizing the rapes in India…
“The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (Official)
A very scary statistic in a nation of a billion: rapes have increased 25% from 2006 to 2011 in India. Of 600 New Delhi rape reports in 2012, only one resulted in conviction. ONE.

my first comment…
“I guess we have to click “like” to support survivors of despicable acts by the filth of humanity. In other words, we DISLIKE these acts.”
my comment on gun control that someone brought up…
“By the way, guns can stop rapists.
Keep guns in the hands of good civilians.”
my response after some might have misinterpreted my support to Dawkins…
“I think some have misinterpreted my words.
1. I like that Dawkins has something to say. I’d like to see other famous people condemn the rapes in India. I’m glad he supports victims and criticizes the mentality of those who turn the blind eye on rape and other atrocities in India.
2. Facebook doesn’t have a “DISLIKE” button to show support in this case. Most of us have to click “LIKE” to show support, but we all feel disgusted at rape.”
