This week has not been kind to your blogger.
I spent much of Tuesday and Wednesday burning rage-calories, and now the rage-fatigue has set in. Not that I’m satisfied that I’ve run out of rage; only when I get a full day without anyone screwing me over will I let my guard down. Not that I need to search for reasons to be pissed off; lest my personal life finally stop sabotaging my free time, the Internet always provides.
For example, we have this prize right here:
Saxton, a junior studying classics and religious studies, said his sermon was meant to convey that “if you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped.”
“I think that girls that dress and act like it,” Saxton said, “they should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that they’re pretty much asking for it.”
Saxton’s sermon came ahead of the “Take Back the Night” event held Tuesday night, which aims to unite people against sexual violence. He said his decision to create the sign and display it was tied to the event and to the fact that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
It’s like punching someone repeatedly in the face, then scolding them for putting bruises on your fist.
Just remember: if you hold up a sign like a jackass, point fingers like a jackass, you’re probably going to get your teeth knocked out with a baseball bat. You should realize that you do have partial responsibility, because I believe that you’re pretty much asking for it.
