Day 06 - A book that makes you sad

All She Wanted by Aphrodite Jones

For those that do not know, this is the book that brought to attention the case of Brandon Teena in the film, "Boys Don't Cry". It's about a woman who lives as a man and is later brutally raped and killed. The even sicker thing about all of it is that the people who could have kept her safe after she was raped did nothing. The police treated her more like a criminal than a victim due to her lifestyle choices, which I find horrifying. I feel that if they would have taken the proper action, she may still be alive today.

Some may ask why I chose to read something like this, as it is going to be a sad one, but I am really into reading about subjects like crime. I have this insane need to understand human behavior and why people feel the need to go so far as to kill others because they are not exactly like each other. It is something I will never get an answer for, but I keep looking nonetheless.

Stop bitching, please...

I recently added a bunch of screencaps and images to the gallery. Included in the caps are ones from the film "The Runaways". I have one request and that is that you not police my site. Internet police are perhaps the most irritating people in the world, as they are simply people who want to torment others and have no real legal issues with the subject. Anyone who knows me knows that my husband works in the entertainment industry. We get promotional DVDs and CDs as far back as six months in advance. This is not being stated for me to say that I have it better than you, it is simply explaining how I have caps from many movies that are not yet available for purchase. Unless you are in the industry and have a valid legal complaint with me, do not bitch about the caps. I cap them because I know fans would like to see them. It's a nice gesture, nothing more. I have gotten several emails calling me out about what a bad person I am for posting them this morning. That is severely uncalled for. If you don't want to see them, don't look, it's that easy. Thank you.
