    Why does she deserve to be treated this way?

    Sometimes Daily Kos really disgusts me.

    And this is one of those times.

      and I agree with the remarks he made in THIS diary about that subject.  While I hold with distain the act of filming the act without her consent or knowledge, the whole issue of teenage promiscuity seems to be the point missing here.

      It seems to have gone over many folks' head.  Like duh people...

        and father of a white woman, thank you for your comment in defense of the diarist.
        i wonder at times about the lack of reading comprehension here.

        ...leaving the girl's name in the title of the diary.

        I find it quite shocking that a diary written in october could remain on Daily Kos this long with her name still in the title.

        The diarist is not the only person with the ability to edit that title, and even if the diarist (who is just one of thousands of dKos users here) seems beyond persuasion on that point, the fact that her name remains in the title to this day reflects quite poorly on the administration of Daily Kos.

        Plent of time has elapsed for the title to have been edited and her name to be removed by Kos himself.
