Blaming the Victims of Rape

Dangerous Logic About Rape
A recent opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal promotes the idea that men are essentially violent and women just have to learn to deal with it. Media critic Jennifer L. Pozner calls it a dangerous response to the problem of sex assault.

A good article. It reminds me of those who talk about how feminism has created a culture of victimhood for women. I would respond it isn't feminists who make rape survivors out to be victims; it is the rapists that victimize them by raping them.

Haven't we learned Blaming the Victims is not only cruel but doesn't get us anywhere?
