There’s No Law Against Being STUPID…
If you dress up in a slutty outfit, go to a bar or club or whatever, drink a lot or get drunk, and go with a guy you hardly know to a dark alley, a car, his place or your place or somebody else’s place, and something bad happens to you: You’re Stupid.
If that something bad is rape or some form of physical or sexual assault, it’s your “fault.” The rapist is clearly and unequivocally at fault, and should be held fully accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law (and beyond if I had my way).
And I realize this form of violation is particularly heinous, as the rapist has taken gross advantage of a woman’s vulnerability, in that she felt comfortable enough to accompany him to private location.
Never the less, if, having played out the scenario outlined above, you find yourself in this situation: You’re stupid.
If a little kid fails to look both ways, runs out into the street and is killed by a car speeding through his neighborhood, the driver is at fault for the kid’s death. But the kid was stupid. He failed to follow the most basic teaching his parents likely instilled in him since he was able to understand the spoken word.
It’s a very big bad world out there. Be careful, and take responsibility for yourself. Because no one else is going to.
