    You know, as much as I think it is totally badass that Mark Ruffalo is pro-choice, I’ll admit I have more of a “love-hate” thing for him. I completely adore him because of his sometimes feminist views which he displays; but good grief some of his choices in films like, “The Kids Are All Right”. Such an awful movie in many ways, and really a disgrace to gay women. It was REALLY hard trying to like him again after that. But then I hear about his stance on reproductive rights, and that “intense dislike” starts to diminish quite a bit. It’s weird though, I love his views on this, but some part of me still can’t really stand him.

    So, “Take care not to have your drink spiked” is blaming the victim, but “Go to the bar that has glasses that can tell if your drink has been spiked” is preventing rape?

    I am confused by an apparent reversal on a major feminist position.
