As far as Rotherham goes, I refer you to this fine post http://flyingrodent.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/chicken.html
"The actual story depicted in the recent report, of course, is that local police basically regarded victims of crime as too scummy to protect, as evidenced by their habit of investigating these offences only just far enough to justify not investigating them. This tells us all kinds of terrible things about how the police investigate sex crimes; who has access to justice and how the UK treats its poorest citizens." (the 'recent report' here is not yesterday's report).
Most of the stuff about #gaymargate and other parts of the never-ending geek culture wars I also find incomprehensible, is there a limitless reserve of feminist bloggers who have dated low-life douche-bros? And why is @nero the #gaymargater poster boy? It took me a while to remember where I had read about him before, it was here http://pme2013.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/the-art-of-self-loathing.html Oh dearie, dearie me. Read the comments. Why does the UK media attract these low-level crooks and fantasists?
