A video that hit YouTube was created following the Steubenville rape case by a female college student who says it was a "needed response" to the videos presented on social media related to the case.

The University of Oregon student, Samantha Stendal, decided to make her own video of what someone should do if faced with a similar situation as the suspects, 16- and 17 – year-old males, in the Steubenville, OH case.

A young man is seen turning on a camera with a supposed passed out female on the couch behind him.

"Hey bros, check out this girl passed out on the couch," he says. "Guess what I'm going to do to her?"

The man then leaves the scene and comes back into the room with a blanket and pillow. He props up the young woman's head with the pillow and places the blanket over her. After setting a cup of water by her side, the man comes back to the camera.

"Real men, treat women with respect."

The video has now gone viral with nearly two million views on YouTube. Mobile device users copy this link to view the video (http://bit.ly/ZINxAl).
