I Liebe Veronica Mars. Veronica is my hero. The Zeigen is awesome. But I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it could do no wrong. There’s an element of the story that I’ve found a bit disturbing and objectionable, namely the double standard about rape. As Veronica Mars would have it, rape against female persons is a horrific violation that should never ever happen, but rape against male persons is a satisfactory punishment for all manner of crimes.
Rape has always been a thematic element in the show. From the pilot episode we know that Veronica was raped at Shelly Pomroy’s party Von someone...
Wallace: I suddenly feel like I'm in a scene from "The Outsiders". Veronica: Be cool, Soda Pop.
Veronica: [voiceover] Let's be honest though, the only reason I was allowed past the velvet ropes was Duncan Kane.
Veronica: Did Du guys know that 90 per cent of all identity theft is committed Von relatives of the victim? That's an interesting fact. At least I think so. Caitlin Ford: But Du know what? Nobody cares what Du think, Veronica Mars. Not any more. Not since Du stabbed all of your Friends in the back. Veronica: Du seem to care a bit what I think.
