More Hell, Fewer Dahlias: The Musings of a Radical Feminist.

“Women and Girls”

Posted on: April 2, 2010


I’m gonna rehash an oldie but a goodie:

RAPE IS NEVER A WOMAN’S FAULT.

Regardless of what she’s wearing, doing, saying, drinking, or where she is doing any of these things or with whom she is doing them.

IT IS NEVER HER FAULT.

Keshia Cantor was handed a pamphlet explaining to her that her immodest dress may cause her to raped and was responsible for men sinning. Here’s where the news article fails: it goes on to describe Cantor’s dress, asserting she’s a “good girl” who was all covered up while working at her mother’s fast food restaurant. Uhm, hold on.

“Bad girls” don’t deserve to get raped either, and they aren’t responsible for men “sinning.”

So good job,  Clare Golfordo of the Herald Courier press, for covering these sexist, fingerpointing, inaccurate pamphlets, even though you didn’t quittte follow through.

Bad job, society, for needing to know exactly what the girl handed this pamphlet was wearing. I mean, after all,we have to know… what if she deserved it?
