“Don’t Get Raped”: New Tumblr Collects Handy Dandy Victim-Blaming Tips

By: Jessica Wakeman / September 11, 2012

Don’t go near football players. Don’t trust police officers. Don’t be in or around your own home. Don’t go to Harvard. Don’t drink or go to school dances. And never, never change your mind about having sex if you’ve already said you want to bone.  All these and many other victim-blaming tips every woman needs are helpfully collected by the writer Kate Harding on Don’t Get Raped, which is filled with links to news articles about our shitty blame-the-victim-not-the-assailant rape culture. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to learn to how do my own Pap smear because I apparently can’t go to the gynecologist without getting raped. [VictimBlaming.Tumblr.com]
