Before the Steubenville verdicts had even been announced, a hauntingly similar case was already emerging in the small town of Torrington, Connecticut. Two high school football players were arrested on charges of sexual assault, but the 13-year-old alleged victim’s ordeal was far from over. Instead, she quickly became became the target of horrifying online harassment, much of which seemed to originate from her school-age peers. 

The two 18-year-old alleged rapists, Edgar Gonzalez and Joan Toribio, have received a surprising amount of support from students at Torrington High School. In a photo posted (and now deleted) by Instagram user aalyahhx, a group of Torrington students posed in cheerful support of Gonzalez, using hand gestures to spell out his jersey number: 21.

Myself, and myself.

When conducting this interview, I realised my true potential as a provider of answers. So often people come to me at shows, at the gallery — even in the street, when my security is lax — in order to ask me for advice, but I am a busy man and rarely have the time to answer. Hence the need for this, my Questions Tumblr, to avoid so many of these undesirable public encounters.
