Conor Oberst Accused Of Rape
2014-01-07 by andcas | 174 Comments
Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst has recently had a unnamed woman come forth on the internet claiming that he raped her ten years ago. The serious allegation originated on a website called XO Jane a few days ago and has quickly gained traction by spreading like wildfire throughout Tumblr.

The accuser says she was sixteen at the time of the incident and it took place when she met him at a show through an arranged meeting from Oberst's brother. Subsequently, Oberst's publicist has released a statement calling the story absolutely, unequivocally false and is seeking a libel attorney.

The fact that she didn't announce it publicly outside of a random website and it was 10 years ago makes the possibilty of it being true 50/50 - Anybody can make up ridiculous stories and accusations like these, but maybe she never told because he might have threatened her if she did or was afraid of what would happen if other people knew.

All of that said, based on what I've been reading, he was always kind of a massive dick and apparently liked to prey on younger women, so all that's laid so far might indicate that it's true. I'm not gonna believe it until there's proof though.

Legal proceedings were not initiated by the victim. And she explained very clearly why on her blog.

Jesus, rape isn't something to be taken lightly at all.
Also it is possible for someone to go silent for 10 years then decide to tell someone, some victims never tell a soul in their life and get tormented by it for a long ass time, so I'd believe it.

That being said, fuck the guy if its true, using fame to your advantage like this is disgusting.

@Gwyn

RE: "There's still no proof that what she said was true so why would I believe it"

Did you find the post by the alleged victim in the Jon Parkin incident where she explains why she didn't file a case against him, or are you asking a rhetorical question? No one is telling you to believe one side or the other. You just merely have to acknowledge that there are two sides to the story instead of just writing off one side as "some girl just doing it for attention".

Do you understand the barriers that exist for a person to file a rape case and see it through prosecution to conviction? A girl in a skimpy dress who goes to a party and gets drunk or a woman who voluntarily invites a man into her home for any reason becomes a "slut who was asking for it" by default. At BEST, she is perceived as dumb slut should have known better. At WORST she MUST have been looking to get laid and now wants 15 minutes of fame to cash in on.

Couple that with the fact that finding evidence and proving anything in such cases is notoriously difficult, especially when such an event happens without an actual physical struggle. If she was too scared of being killed or seriously injured by a much larger and stronger human being to fight back then she must obviously have consented, right?

And without physical evidence of a struggle, how does one prove that the act wasn't consensual, or that it occurred at all? Would any traumatised person want to repeatedly relive the event in a courtroom recounting it to strangers or have those strangers use the necessarily invasive methods to attempt to gather the required evidence if it even exists? Even IF the evidence exists, you merely have a case of he-said she-said to establish consent. How are you going to prove THAT beyond a reasonable doubt?

For all these reasons, the percentage of rape allegations that result in convictions is extremely low, which in turn dissuades people from ever actually going to the police with their allegations because it simply isn't worth it.


tl;dr - The point is not to believe blindly one side or the other, but to understand both sides before passing an opinion.

How was it not a 'dumb slut' comment? Because you didn't literally use the words 'dumb slut'? So it was a 'the victim(s) should have exercised more common sense and good judgment'. Sound awful similar to me.

Here let me word it for you another way.

I don't fuck coke whores. Now you might ask, "well, how do you know if someone is a coke whore?" You look at them, you see how they act, you hold a conversation with them, and you analyze their character through a variety of different techniques. Most 'coke whores' aren't just going to come out and say "I'm a coke whore!", but you can probably figure it out if you give your relationship enough time.

Do you get it now?

@someguest:

Do you honestly believe that the only thing that stands between everyone and every crime ever is just a little common sense, good judgment and mentalist/jedi levels of character analysis? Do you realise that most pedophiles often have picture perfect families? That the majority of victims are raped by someone they know fairly well? If it were THAT easy to weed out the bad ones, don't you think they would've been identified at some point in their life? How many future rapists have YOU identified and stopped lately?

Nice sarcasm thrown in at the end to void anything you said.

A fine generalization that means nothing.

That the majority of victims are raped by someone they know fairly well?


I think most of the time this situation is with a child, so that's outside of something such as the case we are discussing in this news article. Sixteen is old enough for legal consent in a lot of places.

If it were THAT easy to weed out the bad ones, don't you think they would've been identified at some point in their life?


This makes it sound like every other person walking around is a rapist.

ps they're not

How many future rapists have YOU identified and stopped lately?


Using your logic - many.

@someguest:

Not sure if you're being intentionally obtuse, or you're just naturally that way. The point is that pedophiles don't go around looking and acting like pedophiles. They look like, and maintain the veneer of, perfectly normal average people. If they were identifiable from casual social interaction then do you not think that there would be a lot less pedophiliacs on the loose than there are right now? Everyone is NOT a rapist, and I don't know how what I said makes it sound like that. What I AM saying is that you make it sound like criminals stick out like sore thumbs from 'normal' society, so it should be easy to identify them. So why do you think they aren't getting identified?

The implication you are making is of course that you believe that your superior (yet somehow common) sense and good judgment somehow enable you to completely avoid any sort of violent crime from ever happening to you, sparking the sarcastic comment about being a mentalist/jedi. Good job identifying the sarcasm, better job using it as a red herring to avoid the question. My spidey sense tells me it's about to happen again.

Also,

"I think most of the time this situation is with a child"

Wrong.

I love the dichotomy between people wailing about 'white knights' and saying she probably just regretted sleeping with him and people saying he's a disgusting rapist on a completely unproven claim. Nice one sput

Sitar Hero, that was very well said.

I was just confused about how they can prove she was raped when the incident happened 10 years ago. Not from personal experience but, I do understand that it would be difficult to admit to it happening but I still don't know how they will be able to find him guilty since all evidence is probably non-existant by now.

"Also this looks like a good place to say RIP Gaza miss you baby"

Gaza is alive and well! Check out Cult Leader.

Who fucking cares what some girl said happened 10 years ago? Evidence. Then charges. Then I'll care.

Yeah, that's the problem with an issue such as this one. If you say something it's going to go to one extreme or the other even if you don't mean it to end up that way.

And to quote your link, SitarHero:

Rapists are more likely to be a serial criminal than a serial rapist.

46% of rapists who were released from prison were re-arrested within 3 years of their release for another crime.


It is just a scumbag mentality.
