You’re not one of those individuals who figure somebody can ever be answerable for being assaulted or attacked. You realize that nobody is ever really ‘looking for it.’ You know that rape is always the fault of the rapist. However, there are a few people who haven’t exactly sorted it out yet. Explaining them, London-based entertainer Alice Brine wrote a clever analogy, and it consummately highlights the stupidity of victim-blaming.
While it is a severe topic, Brine’s text is as clever as it is funny and has amassed. On social media, it got more than 200,000 likes worldwide and more than 95,000 shares and these numbers are still increasing.
This is what she posted on Facebook:

I’m gunna start going home with random very drunk guys and stealing all of their sh t. Everything they own. It won’t be my fault though… they were drunk. They should have known better. I’ll get away with it 90% of the time but then when one brave man takes me to court over it, I’ll argue that I wasn’t sure if hemeant it when he said ‘no don’t steal my Audi.’ I just wasn’t sure if he meant it. I said ‘Can I please steal your Gucci watch?’ He said ‘no’ but I just wasn’t sure if he meant it. He was drunk.He brought this on himself. You should have seen how he was dressed at the club, expensive shirts and shoes. What kind of message is he sending with that!? I thought he wanted me to come and steal all of his shut. He was asking for it. When he said ‘no’ to me taking everything he owned I just didn’t know if he meant it. ‘No’ isn’t objective enough, it could mean anything.
