Men will rape us no matter, apparently! So if won’t don’t want to get sexually assaulted, us ladies have to “give up over drinking [sic].”

This is according to a facepalm-y new column in Southern Methodist University The Daily Campus newspaper by someone named Kirby Wiley.   ”In order to prevent future victims, viewers need to know the other side of things,” Wiley writes.   The other side of things, in case you’re not picking up what I’m putting down, is that drunk women are deserving of some of the blame here.

Oh hell to the no.

University College London’s Student Union Bans “Blurred Lines”

blurred lines

“Blurred Lines” is, like, so three months ago. But that hasn’t stopped the student union at University College London (UCLU) from banning the song from playing at school events.

Like the University of Edinburgh — another college that banned the song along with five other UK schools — the student union at UCLU believes Robin Thicke’s catchy ditty glorifies date rape and thus isn’t appropriate for the school to play. Said Susana Antubam, a campus Woman’s Officer, “[The song is] a monstrosity of phrases rapists have been known to use against victims.” In fact, according to the BCC, a DJ had to apologize recently because he played  ”Blurred Lines” at the school’s Frat Party night event.

Horrible Rape Joke Goes Viral On Twitter

This. This is an example of a not funny rape joke. And yet it’s one that many, many people have posted or retweeted on Twitter, without criticism, thereby lending their tacit approval of the statement that rape is somehow flattering. The Tumblr blog Fucking Rape Culture is keeping a list of all those who tweeted the joke without calling out its offensiveness, writing, “none of these people will mind at all if you hit them in the face with a spade; after all, it’s flattering that you’re risking jail to hit them (or possibly kill them…).” That post has over 118,000 notes on it, so that’s one reason not to give up all hope for humanity.

Etsy Finally Removes Seller Of “I Only Rape Pregnant Women” T-Shirts

etsy rape tee shirts

Etsy.com has finally removed a seller, “fyourt,” which was selling many, many tee shirts with sexually violent slogans like “I only rape pregnant women” and “Five-year-old slut seeking sugar daddy.”  After public pressure from the Rape Abuse & Incest National Network and other anti-sexual violence activists on a Change.org petition on October 23,  Etsy initially shut down pages for individual tees.  Now the site has just removed the seller entirely, citing violation of the site’s terms of use for not promoting violence.  I commend Etsy for doing the right thing, though I’m not sure why it took a full week.  [RAINN]
