iStockphoto/Thinkstock(STEUBENVILLE, Ohio) — On Saturday, rallies in Steubenville, Ohio are being held over an alleged rape of a 16-year-old girl by high school football players.

Two 16-year-old boys, both local football stars, are set for trial next month in juvenile court on rape charges, and their attorneys have denied the charges.

At a rally organized by the online hacker group “Anonymous,” several fathers of rape victims expressed outrage against rape.

One father of a rape victim said, “I’ve tried to show my girl that not all men are like this, but only a despicable few and their mothers ignore the truth that they gave birth to a monster.”
