Don’t drink! Or you’ll get raped

Ugh, this article is some of the worst journalism I’ve seen in a while. I just have a problem with people blaming women for getting raped. Whether or not you drink, a women is NEVER to blame for getting raped. Why don’t be blame the men who decide that they should take advantage of women when their drunk? Why don’t we blame the culture that condones degrading women and treating them like dirt so it makes rape seem ok? Why don’t we blame the women who would rather blame their fellow female colleagues for their decisions instead of banning together to change the anti-women culture we live in? Why don’t we blame the fact that our court system give men a lesser punishment for raping when they’re drunk but shames women for getting drunk in the first place and letting it happen?

Seriously. This is ridiculous. Violence against women isn’t ever her fault, whether she had a drink or asked the guy who date-raped her out. The blame lies in our culture, that tells men you’re only a real man if you dominate women and treat them like trash.
