I looked at the comments at all three places and found that the comments were restricted to two major themes:

What a great kid Wendell is and how we should all raise our kids like him.
What terrible little shits the cat-torturers were, complete with condemnation of a society that lets this behavior flourish.

Missing from the discussion: Wondering if the cat was asking for it by being so cute and easy to torture.

And it's by Amanda Marcotte. I was surprised to read the comments and find so many people agreeing with her. Whenever she writes an article for Slate, 90% of the commenters are MRAs accusing her of being a fat ugly slob that thinks all men are horrible rapists.

I confess I'm not going near the goddamn comments. But I'm glad you did, because it's good to hear that there's good news.

Unlike many rape victims who are painted as somehow permanently destroyed by their experiences, Jackson is granted the right to a story of survivorship.
That made me start to get teary.

Yep, that's why I tended to stay quiet about Bad Stuff That Had Happened when I was younger, because I hate-hate-hated the idea that people would see me as permanently damaged goods, or guess that X is because Y happened, poor poor dear, now she's all wrong.

Pisses me off, it does. :(
