I’ve posted a similar blog before, but I fully agree with Chrissie Hynde’s stance on rape/sexual assault.
If I walked down a dark alley playing with my mobile phone, and it got snatched, I would bear an element of responsibility for that theft. It wouldn’t be my FAULT. It’s ALWAYS the fault of the person committing the crime. But it was a crime that could have been preventable if I’d chosen a different route and kept my phone hidden.
It is never a girl’s fault that she gets raped, but a bit of self preservation and responsible behaviour could help to reduce the amount of crimes committed and lives ruined.
