Blaming the victim

So if being drunk may make you more susceptible to being raped, wouldn't you educate coeds as such?

Not in today's politically correct society..........

“I don’t think you are doing young women any favors by saying, We’re not going to tell you that this happens – and be careful about it.” The reason given for the censorship, she says, were “focusing on how much students drink . . . leads to blaming victims.”

That's hilarious.

At the University of Cincinnati's own website, they have safety tips to help protect yourself against crime on and near campus.

Here's the list of suggestions
  • Lock your doors and windows
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Don't leave cell phones and computers unattended in plain sight
  • Travel in pairs or groups - don't walk alone
  • Avoid dark streets and hallways
  • Don't reveal personal information to strangers or new acquaintances
  • Don't leave door/house keys under the doormat and don't leave notes on the door
  • Don't get on an elevator with someone that makes you feel uncomfortable
How is adding a line item saying, don't get plastered in bars somehow"blaming the victim"?

Surely, coeds should be able to get bombed like anyone else. But every student should know that being impaired means being impaired. You are not nearly as likely to fight off an attack when you're bombed.......male or female.

So we're going to play pretend not give students the truth.
