Rape Culture Myths: Is the Rolling Stone Story True?

The story of what happened to Jackie is similarly horrifying—and similarly incredible.

Having been raped for three hours while lying in shards of glass “digging into her back”—three hours of which Jackie remembers every detail, despite the fact of the room’s pitch-blackness—she passes out and wakes up at 3 AM in an empty room. Again: It’s possible. You can’t say it isn’t. But I am reminded of the urban myth about someone waking up in a bathtub full of ice in New Orleans. This story contains a lot of apocryphal tropes.

Your Say

Of course it is. Her twin sister who is Hindi relates the same story where she was ravished by three men for a long period while laying on a bed of nails. Terrible, terrible that this is a world wide occurrence, no woman is safe.

The worst one is the lesbian in Alabama who was raped on a fire ant mound. She just itching to get even.

This has nothing to do with gender. Nothing to do with other than sensationalism selling copies. Rolling Stone? Really? I believe supermarket tabloids before I would Rolling Stone. I think Libertarians are the only ones read it, they long for the 60s, greatest decade ever but fifty years ago.

These rape stories, it's like trying to find a diamond in a goat's ass.
