It's shit like this that makes me really wish Karma existed.

Oh fuck you, Texas:

The Supreme Court this week refused to hear the case of a teenage girl who was kicked off her cheerleading team after refusing to cheer for the boy who sexually assaulted her.

As a result, she now owes the school $45,000 in legal fees.

This really only happens if the lawsuit is deemed frivolous. And what possibly could be more frivolous then a lawsuit regarding a cheerleader that foolishly thought she had a right to free speech, who was kicked off her squad for the high crime of refusing to cheer for the man that (admittedly!) attacked her, even though she was willing to cheer for the team as a whole?

But let's not lose sight of what's actually important here. Obviously, her refusing to cheer for the man that raped her might hurt his feelings, be a total downer to sports-lovers everywhere, or possibly bring the morale of the team as a whole down for pointing out the small crime of allowing an admitted(!) sexual offender to keep playing as if nothing ever happened (I mean, it wasn't like he did something serious like smoke a joint or anything that would actually be deserving of suspension from sports). But it's fine, folks, we showed that bitch (and any other potential troublemakers that might find themselves in a similar situation) her place, because we wouldn't want something like youthful indiscretion or his god-given rites of passage to ruin this poor young boy's life, now would we? He's one of our star players!

So now that this silly little case is settled, let's keep rolling our eyes and talking about how feminists are all hysterical and shit when they talk about the rape culture that's completely condoned and embedded in America.
