We live in a political and cultural climate that is hostile to women and even toxic to rape victims. Just listen to Rush Limbaugh
most popular sports Few Americans who beat women. While men are proportionally attackers physical and psychological violence, women are not immune to attack our own - especially, it seems, with the words. Tuesday, Rolling Stone magazine published an interview with 16-time Grand Slam tennis title winner Serena Williams, where Williams blamed a rape victim aged 16, saying that the girl, whose case has been widely publicized was "luck" just been raped. The victim of a violation has been assaulted at a party, instead of intervening, many of his peers took pictures and posted on social media, ensuring that it has not been attacked, but was publicly humiliated.
According to Williams, it's pretty good luck, because "It could have been much worse." Williams also said at the outset that he was not blaming the victim, just before blaming the victim:
"I will not blame the girl, but if you're 16 years old and you're drunk as well, parents should teach. - Do not take drinks from other people"
Or maybe parents should teach their children not to violate people. Even better: teach your children to intervene if safe to do so, or contact a representative of the authority if they witness someone is attacked.
After a bit of indignation, Williams apologized. A little. She said:
What happened in Steubenville was a real shock to me. I was deeply saddened. For someone to be raped, and only 16 years old, is a horrible tragedy! The two families involved - the rape victim and the accused. Currently, I am trying to learn the family of the girl you know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article. It was written - as saying -. It is insensitive and hurtful, and in no way say or to believe that it was all to blame
my career, I have fought for women's equality, equal rights for women and respect in their fields - all I could do to help women who have. My prayers and support always comes to a rape victim. In this case, in particular, a 16 year old innocent.
fever is not the only American popular game for the He-Man Woman Hater. Republicans are pushing for a ban on abortion after 22 weeks, which passed the House on Tuesday. The ban has no chance of becoming law, but that does not stop the GOP wasting time everyone - not to mention taxpayers' money (which is the segment of Limbaugh whom).
