On Victim Blaming – Re: Lara Logan #2

Okay, this is seriously the last thing today.

From Jezebel:

The message women so often get after a high-profile sexual assault is if we just behaved slightly differently, this kind of thing would never happen. If we didn’t have dangerous jobs, if we didn’t go to dangerous (read “foreign,” or lately “Muslim”) places, then we’d be totally fine. But the truth is that women can be sexually harassed right in their newsrooms, they can be assaulted in their neighborhoods, they can be raped in their homes. And every time we respond to sexual assault by curtailing what women do, we add injustice to injury.
