rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

This is the dumbest thing I’ve seen today. It’s the blithering nonsense of the comment section of any online article, but on paper. Except this is worse because the Herald Sun had total control of which comments they could have included.
The fact that they’ve dominated this section with victim-blaming comments from self-righteous, ill-feeling special snowflakes (see Irene and Marian) speaks volumes about how the newspaper regards the issue. I’m almost convinced that Perez Hilton was involved. However, the single sensible comment tacked on at the very end from Lisa sure balances out the truckload of ridiculous preceding it.
I know I shouldn’t be surprised because, well, it’s the Herald Sun, but it’s infuriating. Look at the photo caption. ‘Gabi Grecko is linked to the naked pics scandal, but is she a celebrity?’. Never mind that some asshole violated her and countless others’ right to privacy - which is a crime, not a scandal -, but the important thing to settle here is whether she is a celebrity or not. Because apparently being a female celebrity means you’re no longer worthy of people’s compassion. I don’t think my eyeballs have ever rolled back so far as they did when I was reading this page.

"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
