Women vs. Feminists: Blame For Rape

Via the Marquette feminist blog, Word Warrior, the fact that women are more likely to say that women are at least sometimes at least partially at fault when they are raped.
A majority of women believe some rape victims should take responsibility for what happened, a survey suggests.

Almost three quarters of the women who believed this said if a victim got into bed with the assailant before an attack they should accept some responsibility.
So only three quarters said a woman can get into bed with a man and not be at least partially responsible when she is raped?
One-third blamed victims who had dressed provocatively or gone back to the attacker’s house for a drink.

The survey of more than 1,000 people in London marked the 10th anniversary of the Haven service for rape victims.

More than half of those of both sexes questioned said there were some circumstances when a rape victim should accept responsibility for an attack.

Less forgiving

The study found that women were less forgiving of the victim than men.

Of the women who believed some victims should take responsibility, 71% thought a person should accept responsibility when getting into bed with someone, compared with 57% of men.
This, of course, flatly contradicts the feminist notion that rape is an issue that pits evil males against poor innocent females.

Indeed, Marquette Professor Theresa Tobin has insisted that rape is a strategy that all men use to subordinate all women.

It seems that real-world women didn’t get the memo from academic feminists.

Our theory about this is that women know far better than men how devious and scheming women can be.

And men know better than women how brutal and immoral men can be.

Whatever the reason this is an issue (abortion is another) on which real-world women don’t think like feminists think they should.
