Mary Kassian is twisting and turning the truth once again to make her point. Does she really make it in a honestly and upfront way? Not so much.
In fact she completely misses the point, but pretends she knows was the point was. You don’t have to like all of the presentation of a message in order to ‘grasp’ the concept of the message. In Mary’s reality unless it is dished up in her flavor she seems to ignore it. Here is the article.
Rape is a crime of opportunity or at times even a means of shame (not to say there aren’t other reasons). Adults and children get sexual assaulted all the time sadly.
This story started innocently enough on a college campus when a police officer was asked to come and give a talk about rape prevention, risk management, etc. These things will help you recognize ways to lesson your chances of being attacked, but will not guarantee it.
Dress is cultural myth that society uses to blame others for being raped. Majority of these cases are NOT people that were dressed in the way that society seems to hint at. This myth has been proven false, but this culture has a hard accepting it. Repeating it and using dress encourages the continual use of the myth, instead of dealing with the proven issues.
The police officer in question decided to use this myth during his presentation – even after being taught and instructed not to. He informed the crowd if they were stop dressing like sluts they wouldn’t get raped. The after effect of his words started the march all over the globe to bring awareness to others.
They used the word ‘slut’ because of the police officer using it. I’m sure many did not like the presentation due to the wording, and the fact that some showed up dressing the part on purpose. This march started organically as news spread of the officer’s insulting ignorance.
Keep in mind when you read about sexual assaults on men or women in the news the clothing myth is not prevalent in the facts of the case. That should clue society in, but sadly it doesn’t seem to sink in for whatever reason. Here is a RAINN article about different types of sexual assault.
