Some people in England are throwing fits about this poster and the idea behind it.

Unlike Sussex police, I do not think “many sexual assaults could be prevented”. All sexual assaults could be prevented. There’s always a way to avoid sexual assault: just don’t assault anyone. But that’s too simplistic, isn’t it? You can’t just tell rapists not to rape. It’s what they are, what they do. The only people capable of changing their behaviour are potential, mostly female victims. Or so the story goes. I don’t believe it for a moment. It’s just part of that larger narrative in which women are capable of change but men are not. Male behaviour – male aggression, male violence, male sexual entitlement – goes unchallenged, even when the people it harms most are men themselves.

via Sussex police’s victim-blaming anti-rape campaign: why is it victims, not rapists, that must change their behaviour?.

Now, for sanity’s sake we will follow the legal dictionary definition of rape as the commission of unlawful sexual intercourse or unlawful sexual intrusion or we can go FBI and say that rape is the carnal knowledge of a person, without the consent of the victim, including instances where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of his/her age or because of his/her temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity. We will not use the many varied definitions from so-called feminists that include looking-not looking at a particular female or saying a particularly racy joke or assorted stupid “triggers” that actually make a mockery of the real rape victims. 

With that out of the way, I have a question: Have we lost out ever-loving gene that provide us with Common Sense/Survival Instinct? How can the author of this piece actually say to fellow women that “Hey! It is not your fault therefore you shouldn’t prep for it. Carry on and be vaginally invaded but stand on your principles of victim-hood.”

And I find hilarious that the same vein of liberals that demanded instant satisfaction and total sexual freedom without responsibility are now bitching when that is being applied to the hilt by the little monsters they gave birth to and raised.

The law says a motorist will always give the right of way to a pedestrian when crossing the street, yet we teach our kids to look both ways for incoming traffic, does that mean we are putting the blame on victims?  Shall we say instead “You cross the street whenever and however you like. It is the Car Culture we need to abolish.” Insane.

And I am all for teaching good manners. I am all for a woman to tell a rapist his behavior is not acceptable with one simple sound: Bang! Not only it modifies his immediate behavior but he serves as object lesson for others that may want to follow his path.

And there is always hanging, an old favorite for rapists and a great teaching example. And it has the added advantage to guarantee zero recidivism.

  1. The ‘lady’ who wrote that article states, “we must reclaim our space”.
    Hmm, ok, sounds good, right? I want to meet the people this sounds good to.
    I want to meet the people who think they can reclaim space by just being in it.
    What tools, ideas, has the woman who wrote that POS given the young ladies the ad is aimed at, to claim their space?
    Too bad there was no comment section after the article. My comment would have been the definition for the word ‘target’.

  2. I want to know how people like this can rectify the disconnect of having a “strong independent woman” who insists on making OTHERS responsible for her well-being.

    You can’t be independent until you take full responsibility for everything that happens in your life. That doesn’t mean that being raped is your fault, it means knowing that sometimes the only person you can count on is yourself and making sure that person will be able to bail you out of a situation.

  3. The thing that I object to most strongly is the pervasive idea that ‘teach rapists not to rape’ can REPLACE ‘teach young women to watch out for themselves and their friends’, because the second is somehow an attack of some kind. The two are NOT mutually exclusive, and how in the (censored) is encouraging resilience an attack?

  4. Bumper sticker logic, No one ever raped a 38.

    I have read that gun classes are being heavily populated by women. This is a good thing. Refusing to be a victim is the best defense. Too bad the women in Formerly Great Britain don’t have that choice. They aren’t even allowed pepper spray. That whole country is a victim looking for a place to happen.

  5. Her name is “Glosswitch” and she’s a “feminist”. What do you expect from a “Glosswitch”, sheesh.
