ANTI-RAPE VIDEO GOES VIRAL: An anti-rape video posted online by a University of Oregon sophomore in reaction to the Steubenville, Ohio, rape trial has gone viral and has been viewed over 1.6 million times so far. The 26-second video filmed by 19-year-old Samantha Stendal shows a woman passed out on a couch and a man who looks into the camera and says, "Hey bros, check who passed out on the couch. Guess what I'm gonna do to her?" He then puts a pillow under her head, covers her with a blanket, places a mug beside her and says, "Real men treat women with respect." Stendal is surprised by the response, but told Yahoo! News, "I am happy to see the conversation moving away from victim blaming and changing to how people in vulnerable situations should be treated."
