Am I Wrong?
On the radio at work, just before I closed the shop, there was a news report warning women about the latest date rape tool - cigarettes soaked in embalming fluid. (Ew.)

At the end of the report, the detective being interviewed said something that made me so mad...

"Where there are women, there will be rape."

Am I wrong to be incensed by that?

Women aren't usually the ones committing the rapes, they're the victims, and yet this detective makes it sound like the blame is laid on the women for being there!

The sentence itself infuriated me. The fact that it was spouted by a female detective enraged me.

/rant.

That detective is as ass. And apparently has never heard of male on male rape.

A complete ass, and I swear, if she'd been standing in front of me when she said it I would be picking her teeth out of my knuckles right now. I was that angry.

I think I scared Alan, my co-worker. I turned and kinda growled 'Did you hear that?!' and he jumped backwards away from me. Hee!

::still angry::

1. I'm with you; detective is beyond dumbass. Hello, there's many a male in the world that has a rape story he could tell.

2. I went to school with this girl that used to soak her pot in embalming fluid. She neglected to tell us this while we were smoking it. (bitch) Honestly, I don't see how it would be a date rape drug. It's gross, you feel gross and kinda... overheated (like actually overly warm in the head) but not necessarily out of it. Weird. And gross, did I mention the gross? 'Cause yeah, gross.

Gross would have been my first guess. Thankfully nobody I ever bummed joints off (not that I ever did that, of course!) ever soaked their stash in embalming fluid. Why on earth would you do that, anyway?

Of course you didn't honey! *pets your delusion for you*

Why on earth would you do that, anyway?

She said she liked the high it gave her. *shrug*
Come to think of it, no one I know has heard anything about her in years. hmm...

She's probably perfectly preserved somewhere... *g*

Hrmmmmm.
Maybe what the person - detective? - meant to say - and should have said - that was where there are woman, there will always be some brain-dead guy who thinks it's open season.

Still not a particularly thrilling statement, and why do i think that there'll be some flack over it?

And where in the hell does one get embalming fluid? I mean, jayzus.
*shudder*

Oh, I hope so. I shall be listening to the radio news like a hawk at work for the next few weeks in the hope that something is said. *g*

*fume* Know what? I could put together a better police statement than that. I'll give it to her to read.

Where there are Tae-Kwon-Do classes that teach to women and rusty nails, there will be FAR LESS rape, and a few horrifically mustilated sons of bitches for EXAMPLES.

How bout THAT?

Amen to that! *smooch*
