Associated Press: Law Enforcement Officials Sent Video Of Rice Assault To NFL In April

We spend a lot of time judging women for the choices that they make, or even the choices thrust upon them. We nod when victims of domestic violence apologize for “the role” they played in their assaults. We want celebrities whose private, revealing photographs have been stolen and distributed to be sorry for having taken private photographs in the first place. We expect rape victims to be sorry for being raped—this is the crux of Sarah Silverman’s whole “rape jokes” bit. Women who get catcalled should have walked somewhere else, women who attract unwanted attention should be sorry for being so attractive, and on and on and on. Women say sorry when there is literally nothing to be sorry about. And some of that, as has been discussed, is a survival mechanism in a culture that punishes those who dare to not be sorry for any of the above. Women who do what they have to do to get by shouldn’t be sorry about it, even if what they have to do is say sorry all the time.

But what if we weren’t sorry, not for any of it? What if it were fine to be not sorry?

I think we need to think critically about why we keep placing the responsibility for preventing sexual assault on young women.
Why rape prevention activists don’t like the new nail polish that can detect roofies. (via think-progress)
