Jezebel jezsplains to rape survivor Elizabeth Smart

Lauren Evans at Jezebel looks down at Elizabeth Smart from an immense height in order to sneer at her for pointing out that her kidnapper-rapist’s consumption of porn made her living hell even worse.

Elizabeth Smart’s abduction from her Salt Lake City bedroom in 2002 will go down in history as the realization of every American’s darkest nightmare. Now, at age 28, a healthy and happy Smart recalls the locus of at least some of her misery: Her captor’s obsession with porn.

The above video was posted on Friday by the anti-porn group Fight the New Drug. Whether porn is systematically destroying the moral fabric of America is a conversation for a different day, but one thing is certain: Hearing Smart talk about her hellish ordeal is every bit as bone-chilling now as it was 14 years ago.

But Smart didn’t say “porn is systematically destroying the moral fabric of America” or anything like it. She talked about her rapist and how he behaved. I can’t imagine why Lauren Evans felt the need to sneer at Elizabeth Smart in that way…or how she managed to go ahead and do it without wanting to vomit all over her keyboard.

God I hate libertarian “feminism.”
