    I agree with Maya. And really, apologizing for derailing doesn’t make it okay. Its just another way of intruding and bringing in watabouttehmenz into a dialogue about women’s experiences.

  • Wow. I remember reading her work “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence” just last semester. R.I.P. Adrienne Rich.

    Unlike Steve Jobs, this is a true loss for the world.

    That doesn’t make any sense. If they meant that vodka goes down the throat in a way that other liquids don’t, it wouldn’t say “unlike some PEOPLE”. they are referring to a PERSON being hard to bring down (physically).

    Nobody here is objectifying Ryan Gosling. That’s the difference.

  • I don’t think there’s anything wrong with cautioning women about the risks of getting drunk. At the same time, what’s wrong with our culture is that no responsibility that is being placed on men not to rape. There are no ad campaigns that target men and tell them “Don’t drink, because you might rape someone.” [...]

  • If they really wanted to stop rape, and stop victim-blaming, then a more appropriate ad would be a picture of a guy forcing himself onto a woman, with the caption: “He probably wouldn’t have raped when he was sober, but he did when he was drunk.”
