  •  Where did she say that? (0+ / 0-)

    I'm serious here. Where did she say that ANYTHING excuses rapists' behavior?

    Her only error, as far as I can tell, was believing that dressing provocatively makes a child more likely to be raped. She made no indication whatsoever that it justifies the rape.

      That's a direct causation that she offered - not even an implication.

      Then, she blamed the girl's parents for allowing her to dress in a manner that would invite/cause these rapes.

      She's blaming the victims.

        Nowhere in all of Passidomo's idiocy is there a mention, even in her attempted walkback is there an acknowledgement that she shouldn't have fucking said this in the first place. Open mouth, insert foot.

        She is a douche-bag who doesn't realize that how a woman dresses has NOTHING whatsoever to do with whether or not she is raped. Rape is a crime of power and opportunity--why the Hell don't we understand that? The original shooting-off-of-her-mouth and its attempted walkback were nothing more than CYA for her ignorance.

        Trying to listen to Fixed Noise is the intellectual equivalent of standing next to a jackhammer without ear protection.
