I guess we should all start walking around in full-body dashikis, ’cause bikinis are far too provocative to be worn outside of the shower.
A stunning commentary on HLN’s Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell recently addressed the startling epidemic that women are, indeed, provoking their own sexual assaults. By “walking around scantily-clad and drinking [so much] on Spring Break.”
The controversy surrounded the current state of Spring Break in Daytona Beach, Florida. It seems that coeds are being sexually assaulted on a rampant level this year and “experts” are chalking it up to late-teen and twentysomething women acting provocatively. After much debate as to who is ultimately to blame for the rash of rapes in Daytona, host Velez-Mitchell responded:
“Listen, I don’t like to blame the victim, but … If you’re scantily-clad, wearing nothing but a skimpy bikini, I mean…You’re making yourself vulnerable.”
Velez-Mitchell then had a guest on the segment — a typical sex-loving-looking Frat boy who was proud to advertise his “colors” concurred with Velez-Mitchell and stated:
“Listen, we can’t stop rapists from committing rape. But we can reduce the number of rapes that occur by women not walking around scantily-clad and drinking so much on Spring Break.”
If you really want to torture yourself, you can read the show’s full transcript, but I beg you to take a tranquilizer or something beforehand. You might wanna go and get crazy and do some home-grown dental work on an anchor at HLN.
Bottom line — I guess — ladies? Don’t parade around in your bathing suit in front of men. Or worse, the HLN studios.
