    I would like it if people who are victims of a crime like rape wouldn't have to do everything in their power to keep it a secret, and I'd like the point to be made that a child molester incestuously raping someone who has diminished capacity to give consent deserves very little in the way of privacy. Posting evidence of a rape is not quite the same degree of awful as the crime itself.

    Whenever I look at that photo with my daughter standing beside my brothers truck in front of a Telluride bar its as if a still picture becomes a storyboard for a scene in a movie and everything else that followed is captured in that instant. That's why I put it up.

    The nature of being ok with something implies informed consent without duress or diminished capacity. For children parent's and family have some responsibility to advise and consent but there is a point at which you have to be able to choose right from wrong for yourself. I don't think my brother has got there yet.
