    ”Rape is caused by rapists, misogyny, structural violence and institutional tolerance, not by women’s clothing or make up, not the way she talks, or walks, not by her drinking, not by her ‘not being careful enough’, and certainly not be her being a slut.”

    While she’s certainly articulate and spunky, this claim is remarkably naive. Yes, ultimately, rape is indeed always caused by the rapist, but to suggest that a woman’s being drunk and half-naked has no place in the analysis is, I hope we can admit, a great demonstration of deluded denial.
