Right-wing blogger on date rape: You buy the ticket, you take the ride

1 comment

Commenting on a blogpost about the Julian Assange rape case that appeared on the US blog site Feministe, right-wing blogger Robert Stacy McCain says with regards to date rape:

“Listen up, sweetheart: You buy the ticket, you take the ride.

“You made your choice when you picked the guy, who is going to run his standard modus operandi on you, just like he ran it on the last three-dozen hoes he played.

“If you tumble into a random hook-up with no prior knowledge of the guy’s reputation and he turns out to be a selfish brute whose standard modus operandi is repulsive, dangerous or painful, in what sense are you a victim of anything except your own stupidity?”

Read the rest of Robert McCain’s astoundingly misogynistic blog.

  1. Oh gods, my blood pressure could really have done without that. If I thought it’d do any good I’d comment on his post and link him to this: http://bit.ly/e0hCUR – but I suspect it wouldn’t register in his world view. Ugh.
