What are the names of the girls in Two Girls, One Cup?

Most of us who have been following the news know the name George Sodini. And while I doubt the two women who made the Two Girls, One Cup video want their names to be public knowledge, the difference in the two types of fame is telling.

Another telling thing: Deadgirl, because as the tagline says, "you'll never have anything better" than getting the chance to repeatedly rape a restrained female zombie.

George Sodoni totally would have hit that.

Of course, both Sodoni and Deadgirl exist because men's worst fear is that women will laugh at them. Women's worst fear is that men will kill them. (I imagine zombies don't laugh at the men raping them, and neither do ordinary dead women.)

And because this is women's worst fear, and because women are trained from birth not to do anything that might provoke a man into killing them, well, women who are taught that physical confrontations make them look crazy will not start hitting, kicking, and screaming until it’s too late, if they do at all.

And then they get blamed for "letting it happen."

This post has no point. It says nothing we don't already know, just shares some egregious and troubling examples. But sometimes, oftentimes, I'm enraged by the world we live in, and terrified by it.
