16-year-old gets raped & the internet thinks it's a joke
I'm so disgusted with humanity right now because of the horrors that a 16-year-old girl from Texas who was raped is going through. Her name is Jada and although she is a minor her name is out because she has the courage to speak out about what happened and is happening to her.
About a month ago, Jada, was invited to a party and when she got there she was handed a drink by the teenage boy that was hosting. Jada believes the drink was spiked because she passed out and doesn't remember what happened to her the rest of the night. What happened to her that night made it's way onto social media. She was raped. Pictures and videos of her passed out limp body, naked from the waist down were being shared as texts and via social media posts. I'm sorry to say her abuse has not ended.

As if the rape and the sharing of it on social media weren't awful enough, the internet trolls decided to make a joke out of the rape of a 16-year-old girl and one of the worst memes in internet history was born.
Cruel heartless idiots started making fun of Jada's rape by posting pictures mimicking the positions that her body was forced into and using the hashtag #jadapose.
I'm sorry, but as far as I am concerned that mierda is a crime! It is a crime against Jada, an attack, further sexual abuse, just like the rape was and every single person who distributed those mocking pictures should be prosecuted. She was raped! She's 16! Why would anyone who isn't a sick and twisted abuser make fun of her?
And through all of this, Jada is amazing. She is brave. She is an inspiration. She is resilient. She is not hiding. She says, "There's no point in hiding. Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that's not what I am and who I am."
Her attacker has yet to be brought to justice. This needs to change NOW! Do something, police!
I am raising two girls, two daughters in a world that has treated a 16-year-old girl who was raped like a joke that should be shared far and wide on social media. This needs to stop NOW.
