    Fucking horrible.

    Meanwhile, as to that news report....

    If it bleeds, it leads. When some scum buries a knife into a person to fucking carve, ewww, you don't bury that fact until 2 minutes into your story.

    Is anyone else noting the comments at the bottom of the Huffington article? How many people think she did it to herself for the attention?

    I think cutters usually just slash. I'm not familiar with stories of them doodling.

    I'm still so fucking outraged at the original report from that rinky dink Nebraska news station which to me highlights the general attitude of how gay people are treated.

    Does anyone think for one second that had a baby or a child's body been found carved that wouldn't have made the headline or been the first fucking thing they mentioned in their story? How about if someone carved into the tummy of a pregnant str8 woman? They wouldn't lead with that?

    How that original news report used the carving of human skin as a little surprise turn of events in their story is beyond morbid. It absolutely highlights homophobia at its most horrific. Because that's the mindset that would allow and encourage this event. They don't consider us human.

    My first thought after reading the original article was 'please let this not be a hoax.' Not that I'd wish this kind of attack on anyone, but I immediately thought of the potential damage it might cause to ongoing GLBT human rights efforts if this turns out to be fake.

    I think what may have drawn questions about the attack is that the reported details are so dramatic and sensational...like something out of Hollywood.

    To be clear, I'm not saying she faked the attack. It'll be interesting to see what the investigators find and report.

    A recovery fund has been set up. From what I have been told, she has no insurance.
