Clueless is actually the perfect word the describe Stacey Dash and her views on survivors of rape.
Appearing on the always-enlightening Fox News program “Outnumbered,” Dash wanted to make perfectly clear that if you’re a woman who is raped, it’s 100 percent your fault. Speaking out in response to the several national sorority chapters who asked their members today to avoid parties at the University of Virginia’s fraternity houses, Dash said the following:
“The other bad girls–bad women–are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt and then, you know…But the other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who over-drinks. So it’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk; you get yourself drunk.”
Yikes. Not exactly ironclad logic. Was she going to finish her ridiculous, nonsensical comparison with “Rapists don’t rape you, you get yourself raped”? Like, isn’t that where she’s going with this?
