Don't let a good boy go bad.
This lie has been told for years. The idea that the victim is responsible for a crime. Be it your car being burglarized because you didn't lock it, or even stolen because you left the keys in it. In neither event, are you responsible, because good people don't steal, while a crook will take any opportunity to get something that doesn't belong to them.
I mention this because of a wave of protests over a comment by a police officer. The police officer from Toronto said that women were inviting rape by dressing like sluts.
PFUI. Blaming the victim is the answer of the lazy asinine fool. It is used by police who don't want to find criminals, by civic leaders who want to excuse their constituents, by professors and psychologists who want to normalize the deviant behavior. I personally reject that argument with all possible contempt.
I am Conservative. Not Republican nor Democrat. I believe in individual liberty. That includes the liberty to dress as you wish, as long as you are willing to accept the fallout. By fallout I mean if you dress in a sensual or sexy manner at church ladies, you can expect whispers or looks to be thrown that way. However, I do not believe that fallout should include physical attack. I am Conservative, I am death on crime where someone is harmed.
Blaming the victim is hardly the the way to stop Rape, as women in the Middle East are Raped despite being covered in many cases from head to toe. Rape isn't about sex, it's about power, the attacker exuding power over the woman. Yet, this asinine moron who was giving a talk on public safety put the onus on the victim. Men wouldn't rape women if the women didn't dress in a sensual or sexual manner. Like a slut in his words.
