Yeah. He shouldn’t go out, dressed like that. He was asking for it.
Before I walk in that part of town, I always take off my “you deserve to be raped” sign.
He got off light…
This got me wondering about typical victim blaming behavior around clothes, and wondering if anyone has ever used the free speech defense in that context, as in, if clothing is a form of expression, saying it’s okay to physically assault someone for that expression is against the principle of free speech, and the government punishing that person through the courts should be illegal.
I found this paper from 1993 that lays out why clothing should not be an allowable entry into any such court cases, but it doesn’t venture into freedom of speech.
That was an interesting read. Thanks for finding it!
Problem is, some women who support them cheer them on when they engage in this behavior. I’m sure those women are told on a regular basis how different and special they are in comparison to those “other” women who deserve disrespect. They categorize people, and in their minds, equality does not (and should not) exist.
And when they’re not thinking that, it’s “Women are even more equal than men now, thanks to feminazis.”
Awesome Twits account.
