That poor woman, it's such a shame. People can be so ugly and cruel.

It is so disgusting, I really hope they find the perpetrators fast.

This is the kind of violence that Obama is legitimizing by choosing Rick Warren.

Thanks, Obama. Thanks for nothing.

On behalf of all men, I want to apologize to this woman. Guys - let's work to stop rape, and all men's violence against women, okay?

Uh...Ben. I didn't do it. Don't throw me in with those ghetto thugs.

One of the most moving experiences of my life was when I saw a man get on his knees in front of a woman who had just revealed in a heart wrenching way that she had been molested as a child, and he, from his heart, even though he was not the man who did it, apologized to her. That woman changed over time. You want to know the REAL miracle? I changed too. From that moment on I started to STOP hating men. I highly respect any man who has the compassion, selflessness, and the guts, to care about what a woman needs. Thank you Ben Atherton-Zeman

Ben Atherton-Zeman and Irma sound like they're into some kind of dominatrix fantasies.
