Fist. Of. DEATH!

Okay, I never really watched Seventh Heaven because I enjoy having a will to live. So when the creator of that show made another show, I - well I wasn't even aware of it. Obviously watching it was out of the question.

But in my travels across the 'net I come across many things, and one was a description of a plotline in said show, The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

The plotline was this: A teenage girl is by herself after dark, waiting for her friend to pick her up. Two drunk guys come up and go after her, very obviously to rape her. While getting away the girl falls to her knees, says a quick prayer (her character is Evangelical), then breaks a beer bottle and brandishes it at the men. Her friend then comes up and chases the men away.

That's not the bad part.

The bad part is THE SECURITY CAM FOOTAGE OF THIS EVENT IS PLAYED ON THE NEWS FOR LAUGHS. Apparently this entire plotline is used as a joke. If you think I'm kidding, just watch part 1. (It's all at the beginning, nothing to fast forward to in order to get to it) . I - I just -

WHAT THE FUCK???? Seriously, a girl is shown being nearly raped and it's somehow FUNNY?? I - I -

No words. No fucking WORDS.

I do have a link though. Feedback for ABC Family, which airs the show.
