Rape Crisis Hysteria: Former GWU President Accidentally Speaks The Truth, Is Vilified
Still more insanity.
Will Trachtenberg be forced to publicly admit to counter-revolutionary thinking, and to recommend a stint at re-education camp for himself?
The advice "don't blame the victim," like so much we got from old-school feminism, was sound. In the current climate of hard-left rape hysteria, however, this has become: it is thoughtcrime to entertain the idea that there is anything women can do to decrease the probability of being raped. To suggest that women might lower their odds of being raped by drinking less--or by doing or refraining from doing anything whatsoever--is blaming the victim. (See: the recent freak-out about anti-rape nail polish...)
This is, of course, the utterest hogwash.
It is simply a fact that women--especially in a typical college environment--can tilt the odds in their favor by, for example, not getting black-out drunk. Again: that is a fact.
To insist, on daft ideological grounds, that this very sound piece of advice not be uttered is to be willing to sacrifice the well-being of actual people to an insane political commitment. And that is either evil or damn near to it.
The crazies are ascendant in contemporary feminism, and that feminism is at the forefront of the effort by the loony left to lead liberalism over the cliff.
