Photo of the Day: What kind of guy thinks rape is like bike theft?

Yesterday’s Quote of the Day was a priceless gem from a Stanford student who told Bloomberg that women need to protect themselves from rape by staying sober, etc., just like people should lock up your bikes. You know. Because that’s an accurate analogy.

So who is the type of person who thinks women should find a U-lock for their bodies?

My friend Marybeth Seitz-Brown, a Students Active for Ending Rape board member, thought she’d Google the guy. And here’s what she found (Screenshot of the Day?) from his Stanford Daily writer profile:
