  •  I don't believe in that slippery slope (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I do believe that people will try and drag it that way, but I don't believe that it is inevitable. You know, this is the liberal dogma on rape, but you know what the alternative is? Girls continue to go out and end up in vulnerable situations--which they have every right to do--and men will take advantage of them. We can educate and prosecute'em till we go blue in the face, but there will always be evil. So then what?

    We tell women, "Don't get vulnerable", and we tell men, "Don't be rapist fuckfaces". We try to create a safe, let me emphasize that, SAFE, drinking culture, where people don't consider drinking themselves into insensibility any more than they'd consider leaving their wallet on a street corner unguarded. You don't have to moralize to preach safety. And above all, we teach about enthusiastic consent, and how anything short of that isn't consensual sex, is wrong, is criminal.
