Tonight, the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest will come to a close and officially name a winner. The annual competition pits the top songs from countries in Europe against one another on live TV for a shot at the crown of most popular song. The city of Malmö, Sweden, had the honor of hosting this year’s contest since a Swedish song, “Euphoria” by Loreen (@loreenofficial), won last year.
Eurovision (@eurovision) has been sharing photos from the rehearsals, press-conferences and semi-final competitions leading up to tonight’s main event. Be sure to tune into their account for more behind-the-scenes content and check out photos from competitors:
It doesn’t matter that you’re joking. It doesn’t matter that you don’t mean it. It doesn’t matter that he’s not a real person. I don’t care.
Fucking joking about raping and molesting a thirteen year old is not okay.
I don’t understand this fascination with rape. I wonder if this people even know what rape is or have the ability to imagine what being raped is like; by that I mean being raped, not the utterly unrealistic vision that has been going around.
I you have any idea what rape is like, you can not joke about it.
Rape is horrible. It is disgusting. It is one of the most (if not the most) threatening immoral thing you can do to a human being.
You take away their right to make their own decisions, their right of free will, their trust, their ability to love without constantly worrying, their ability to live, their everything.
Especially when dealing with a child: it will destroy the possible life they could lead.
Don’t come to me telling me that these people did not mean it; it doesn’t matter of they did not mean it, you don’t make jokes about this.
