Victim Blaming

Misfit Spirit

A friend of mine posted a photo on Facebook the other day. She’s a beautiful woman with long blonde hair, an expertly done smokey eye, red lips, and a “fuck you” look on her face. She was wearing black pants, black combat boots, a black and white plaid shirt, unbuttoned and tied at her hips. Underneath her shirt she wore a bright pink bra. And in her hands she held a sign. That sign, along with her outfit, caused so much debate. Her sign read…

“JUST BECAUSE SHE’S DRUNK DOESN’T MEAN SHE WANTS TO FUCK.”

Powerful message right? She posted it along with a little excerpt that can be surmised as saying that what she wears doesn’t dictate what someone is allowed to do to her; just as her level of intoxication doesn’t make it okay for someone to touch her. She said that she isn’t an object, and that…

    And because you find so many great/needed things (and write ’em), I nominated you for The Mystery Blogger Award. For more on the rules (and founder) here’s my response on it: https://thechattyintrovert.com/2017/05/02/the-mystery-blogger-award-groovy/

  2. Thank you so much for reblogging this! And Chatty, thank you for what you said. I was SHOCKED when that was the first comment on the status. I have some very intelligent women on my page. Women who support their fellow sisters, are all about solidarity and who are so supportive and loving. And yet, every woman who commented on it for the first 120 comments were so shitty to my friend. It was so disappointing. But I told them so and really challenged the way they thought. Unfortunately, even though they both contradicted themselves multiple times, their egos just wouldn’t let them back down from their original comments. But thank you both for your support. I appreciate it so much.
