While we’re in the midst of the current course of conversation (you know what I mean), let’s not forget religion’s long list of crimes in the sex wars either. And speaking of Islam…
Here’s the latest stupid shit from Indonesia: They’re making miniskirts illegal because they “make men do things.”
What religion does under the guise of “morality” is rarely more than flat-out misanthropy. The thinking here is both idiotically misogynist (the old victim-blaming) and misandrist (because mehnz are such weak-willed animals that the mere sight of female thigh-flesh transforms us into rampaging sex-Hulks). And you know, I really get tired of people who are so determined to avoid a little thing called personal responsibility that they’ll trade in both victim-blaming/slut-shaming and the myth of male weakness in the same breath, when what they should be doing is looking in the goddamn mirror and saying, “You know, maybe I’m the asshole.”
Here’s a little PSA.
Miniskirts do not cause rape. Bikinis do not cause rape. Cleavage does not cause rape.
Rapists cause rape.
This has been a public service announcement from a human being with more than single-digit functioning brain cells.
Have a nice day, Indonesians.
